Some Chief Engineers in PWD do not have work due to unplanned creation.
Chief Engineer (Training & Vigilance) which is entrusted to conduct regular training of Technical and Non-technical staff of department is not able to conduct training in the past many years. Chief Engineer (CSQ) is just registering the contractual work. Most of the Highway works under PWD (Highway) has been taken over by NHIDCL, a govt of India undertaking. So, PWD (Highway) can now be easily handled by one Chief Engineer.
As three Chief Engineers are retiring by 2017, the posts can be done away with once they retire.
The subordinate posts under these offices may be shifted to newly created three PWD Circle offices at Tawang, Daporijo and Khonsa.
Mizoram and Meghalaya PWD have three Chief Engineers each while Manipur, Assam, Tripura and Nagaland have two each.
