Subject:  Request for convening supplementary DPC of PS Group B cadre for the year 2015-16.

Respected Madam,

      Your kind attention is invited to Association’s letter No. CHQ/AIAIASP/PS Gr. B/DPC-AP/2014 dated 11.1.2016 (copy enclosed) vide which it was requested to convene review / supplementary DPC for promotion to the cadre of PS Gr. B for the year 2015-16.  But nothing has been heard in this regard so far.

It is to bring to your kind notice that DPC for promotion to the cadre of JTS Gr. A for the year 2015-16 was convened prior to holding of DPC for the promotion to the cadre of PS Gr. B for the year 2015-16. Resultantly, 36 officers of PS Gr. B cadre were promoted to JTS Gr A vide memo No. 4-2/2015-SPG dated 31/12/2015.  Mean while 7 officers declined their promotion in PS Gr B cadre and Directorate accepted their declination vide memo. No. 9-03/2016-SPG dated 28/1/2016. Thus, 43 residual vacancies are available for convening supplementary DPC in PS Gr. B cadre for the year 2015-16. It is worthwhile to mention here that last year also such type of orders were issued followed by supplementary DPC for the promotion to the cadre of PS Gr.B. Consequently, 34 posts of PS Gr B cadre was filled vide Memo No.9-25/2014-SPG dated 14/7/2015.

          It is significant to mention that out of 122 officers promoted vide memo dated 10.11.2015, 31 officers promoted to PS Gr. B for the year 2014-15/supplementary DPC for the year 2013-14 and declined their regular promotion shall also have been selected against the vacancy year 2015-16. These 31 officers will be promoted only after the expiry of their debarment period. Willingness / un-willingness of such officers have not been obtained by Directorate till date.

Supplementary DPC of the left out vacancies from the extended zone of consideration is a part of main DPC and should be convened immediate after completion of one month against left out vacancies so as the officers in the extended zone may not be deprived of their legitimate right and benefits. It is also the settled law that if the consideration for promotion gets delayed for no fault of the employee who is otherwise found fit for promotion in that vacancy year itself, then natural justice would require grant of the benefit of promotion with retrospective effect from the date of occurrence of the vacancy. Even now, no action to convene supplementary DPC has been initiated.

In view of the above, your honour is requested to convene the supplementary DPC for the vacancies 2015-16 only after 31 officers whose debarment period is over or after receipt of declination of promotion if any from them.

          We hope that an early action will be taken in this issue.  

          Yours sincerely,

 (Vilas Ingale)
General Secretary
