Letter to Member (P) i/c/w non maintaining uniformity by circles in making adhoc promotion of JTS Gr. A cadre

No. CHQ/AIAIASP/adhoc / JTS-Guj/2014             Dated :     13/5/2014

Shri Kamesh Chandra,
Member (P),
Department of Post,
Dak Bhavan, Sansad Marg,
New Delhi-110001.

Subject: Regarding non maintaining uniformity by Circles in making Adhoc  Promotion of JTS Group A cadre.

Respected Sir,  

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’ and JTS Group ‘A’ cadre are of such a nature that these cannot be kept vacant in the larger interest of department and public as well.

Whenever  adhoc  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. Gujarat Circle is set example where S/Shri J. D. Vankar, AD, PTC Vadodara & R. M. Shah, SRM 'W' Division, Vadodara are still working in PS Gr. B cadre and their juniors are working in JTS Group A cadre on adhoc basis since long.  It means that inter-se-seniority has not been taken in to consideration while making the ad-hoc arrangements in JTS cadre at Gujarat Circle. This situation is arises because of non-convening of JTS Gr. A DPC on time.  In most of the circles more than 50% JTS and STS posts are vacant. JTS Gr. A DPC for the year 2012-13 and 2013-14 and supplementary DPC for PS Gr. B cadre for 2013 are pending.
This Association therefore requested your honour to kindly issue instructions to all the circles to fill short term vacancies of JTS Gr. A 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 pending DPCs (JTS Group A and Supplementary PS Gr. B) 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
