North Eastern Electric Power Corporation Limited (NEEPCO) office will be shifted to Guwahati from Shillong which has raised confusion among the employees.

September 14, 2021: Confusion has been raised among the employees of North Eastern Electric Power Corporation Limited (NEEPCO) as the office will be shifted to Guwahati from Shillong.



Since its formation in April, 1976, NEEPCO has been functioning from Shillong.





According to some sources, the move to shift the office without any valid reason has created confusion among the employees who have urged the Meghalaya government to intervene and prevent any move to shift the offices of NEEPCO to Guwahati.



The Chairman and Managing Director and other functional directors and senior executives of NEEPCO have shifted their base and are functioning from Guwahati since March 2020.





Several offices of NEEPCO such as operations and maintenance, corporate planning, corporate project monitoring and contract & procurement have already been shifted to Guwahati on the pretext of smooth functioning without any administrative order from the Union Ministry of Power. 



“The official quarters of the CMD and Directors of NEEPCO at Laitkor built at the cost of crores of rupees has remained unutilised since 2020,” the sources said.



The sources further revealed that NEEPCO had procured land at Umsawli in New Shillong for its township project. Peripheral development of land was started a few years back but the same has been stopped.
