The officials who have been given additional charge as HoDs and other posts feel that working for a unified corporation was easier.
Earlier we had to work for one corporation,now we have to do one task three times,which will make it hectic and unnecessarily taxing. There is no getting away from the additional task we have been given, said a senior official.
