Non maintaining uniformity by Circles in making Adhoc Promotion of ASPs to PS Gr. B Cadre.

No. CHQ/AIAIPASP/PS-Gr. B/Ad-hoc/2015                           Dated : 11/9/2015

The Secretary,
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 once again 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.  Few circles are over sighting these rules while making ad-hoc promotions.

            This Association therefore requested your honour to kindly issue strict 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 and convene timely DPC for promotion to the cadre of PS Gr. B for the vacancy year 2015-16 with correct vacancies for career advancement of the employees and to avoid ad-hoc arrangements that is otherwise also creating ambiguities.  

          With profound regards,

 Yours sincerely,

(Vilas Ingale)
General Secretary

  1. This is an important issue affecting almost all the IP/ASPs. To escape from the implications of callousness in poor HR management in not calling the DPCs on time IP/ASPs are not allowed to officiate in higher post for a complete year. They are reverted to lower post when their juniors are officiating in higher post else where. It is a clear flout of laid down principles.
