Repatriation of PS Gr B officers to their parent circle.

No. CHQ/AIAIPASP/1/Repatriation /2013                       Dated :   21/1/2013.

Sub:   Regarding issuance of repatriation orders in PS Gr. B cadre.

Ref. : Director (Staff) letter No. 9-18/2012-SPG dated 07/01/2013.

Respected Madam,

          On behalf of IPASP Association I feel obliged for the repatriation orders of ELEVEN PS Group “B” cadre officers issued vide letter referred to above, against the future vacancies i.e. up to 31.03.2013 in the respective Circles. Consequently, the Circles would be benefited and could utilize services of these officers. Besides, the Circles would not have to proceed for short term arrangement, go for adhoc promotions against the guidelines of DOP&T and to face imbalances thereof.  

          As you aware, there is no charm left in the promotion, in terms of marginal pecuniary benefits, that too after getting transferred to a distant place at the fag end, when the officer consolidates his service innings. Thus, the only charm left would be to get retire with some solace. Aforesaid repatriation has come for many as bolt from the blue, particularly when the officer is moved from adversaries. Needless to say, that serving at distant circle with different culture, language, food, etc has never been liked by most of all. 

          Whereas, aforesaid repatriation orders have brought much cheer to the families concerned, but several similar situated officers are left stranded high and dry. While in respect of Punjab and Karnataka Circles the retirement vacancies arising upto 31/3/2013 has been taken into account, the same principle has not been adopted in respect of other Circles like Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh etc. It is also understood that around 60% JTS posts are lying vacant for which DPC is also likely to be held shortly causing a number of Group “B” vacancies. Some others get voluntary retirement. A list of officers retiring in a couple of months against which repatriation can be considered is attached for reference. From the enclosed list you can see that, 5 officers from Tamil Nadu circle are retiring in this month whereas 13 officers of last year’s PS Gr. B batch are still working in other circles where they have already completed more than one year. The representations if any received from individual officer for repatriation to his parent circle and vacancies arises due to refusal of promotion may also be considered at the time of issuing repatriation order to their parent circles.
          It is therefore urged upon kindly to intervene and arrange to issue appropriate repatriation orders against the future vacancies as shown in the enclosed list for the adjustment of affected persons.

An early action is solicited please.

With warm regards,
Yours sincerely,
