Defunct lift at PF office: PCB, EPFO fail to take responsibility
As per official records, the monthly rent paid by the PF office to PCB is Rs 24,332 for 17,640 sq ft area. The rental agreement between both the public authorities expired more than two years ago, sources said. PCB authorities admitted that a dispute is going on regarding registration of agreement with retrospective effect and clearance of dues considering enhanced rates for the period between 2008 and 2013.
When contacted, regional PF commissioner S K Thakur said his office, in the past, had undertaken minor maintenance of the lift, but the current breakdown was a major one. “Being the owner of the entire building, it is the responsibility of the PCB to carry out the current due maintenance of the lift. We are unable to shell out the money for it,” he told Newsline on Friday.
