Explanation of BAEC over media report on salaries of RNPP employees

  • Print
Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission (BAEC), as the implementation organisation of the project and owner of the company, stated that fake, baseless news on salaries of the employees of the Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant (RNPP) was published in some newspapers and social media tarnishing image of the sensitive project of the government.
Therefore, explanation of the BAEC is the employees, working in the RNPP project, are regular manpower of the Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission and they have been added to the project to implement it fairly. So, they take salary as per the government salary structure.
Besides, no driver or cooker is yet to be appointed. If anyone would appoint in future, salary will be TK 24,400. So, there is no question of giving salary to them.  
Hopefully, this explanation will remove the misunderstanding           
Excessive price has reportedly been spent for purchasing furniture and others things for the officials and employees of Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant and the salaries fixed for them were also unusual.
According to media reports, a pillow was purchased at Tk 5,957 and the cost for its lifting to a flat was set at Tk 760. The salary of its project-director was been fixed Tk 4.96 lakh per month, a statement said.
