Letter to Secretary (Posts)...Regarding non maintaining uniformity by Circles in making Adhoc Promotion of ASPs to PS Gr. B Cadre.

No. CHQ/IPASP/PS-Gr.B/Assam-1/2013                           Dated : 22/4/2013

Ms. P. Gopinath,
Department of Post,
Dak Bhavan, Sansad Marg,
New Delhi-110001. 

Subject: Regarding non maintaining uniformity by Circles in making Adhoc  Promotion of ASPs to PS Gr. B Cadre.  

Respected Madam,  

The IP/ASP Association intends to bring to your kind notice how Circles are resorting to ad-hoc arrangement in total disregard to the statutory provisions on the subject as well as proper manpower management and career advancement of the employees. As explained in DOP&T’s O.M. No.28036/8/87-Estt.(D) dated 30.03.1988 read with O.M. No.28036/1/2001-Estt.(D) dated 23.07.2001, promotions/ appointments on ad-hoc basis are to be resorted to a post which cannot be kept vacant in consideration of its functional/operational requirement. In our Department, posts of PS Group ‘B’ are of such a nature that these cannot be kept vacant in the larger interest of department and public as well.

Whenever  ad-hoc  promotions  are  found  inescapable  in  selection  posts  in  the  exigency  of  service,  the  same  should  be  ordered  only  from  amongst  the  senior-most  eligible  staff.  As  a  rule,  a  junior  should  not  be  promoted,  ignoring  his  senior  unless  the  competent  authority  ordering  the  ad-hoc  promotion,  considers  him  unsuitable.  Certain circles are over sighting these rules while making ad-hoc promotions. Assam Circle is set example where two juniors of Shri Ganesh Kumar Sarmah, ASP (HQ), Tezpur Division are still working on ad-hoc basis in PS Gr. B cadre at Circle office as ADPS (Mails) and ADPS (FS) ignoring the right of Shri Ganesh Kumar Sarmah. It means that inter-se-seniority has not been taken in to consideration while making the ad-hoc arrangements in PS Gr. B cadre.

            This Association therefore requested your honour to kindly issue instructions to all the circles to fill short term vacancies of PS Gr. B cadre on ad-hoc basis according to the guidelines issued by DOP&T and as per the inter-se-seniority cum fitness at the earliest and convene timely DPC in each cadre for career advancement of the employees and to avoid ad-hoc arrangements that is otherwise also creating ambiguities.   

            Hoping for a proper course of action and line in reply.  

 Yours sincerely,
(Vilas Ingale)
General Secretary
