Letter to Secretary (P) i/c/w holding of supplementary DPC & repatriation of PS Gr. B officers to their parent circle.

No. GS/AIAIASP/PS Gr./DPC/2014                                    dated   20/2/2014

Subject:    Request for convening supplementary DPC after calculating the actual vacancies including vacancies after repatriation of Group B officer presently working outside their Circles.

Respected Madam,  

          Your kind attention is invited to this Association’s letter of even number dated 30/12/2013 vide which it was requested to issue orders for convening supplementary DPC for promotion to the cadre of PS Gr. B and consider repatriation of all Group B officers who completed one year in outside Circles. But till date nothing has been heard in this regard. 

Directorate vide memo No. 9-5/2013-SPG dated 29/1/2014 has accepted 17 (seventeen) declination of PS Gr. B officers promoted vide Memo No. 9-33/2013-SPG dated 10.10.2013. Last year also such type of orders were issued and then supplementary DPC for the promotion to the cadre of PS Gr. B was convened under Memo No.9-23/2012-SPG(Pt.) dated 21/6/2013.  

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. This has held by the court of law in various cases. In the year 2012 but after regular DPC-2011, 23 vacancies were left vacant depriving equal number of  senior most officer(s) of their legitimate right that too keeping DOP&T instructions at stake. In the vacancy year 2013, vacancies occurring in December 2013 have not been taken into account leaving a chunk of vacancies of the given year. It is not understood as to how this gap shall be filled. Even now, no action to convene supplementary DPC has been initiated till date.  

In view of the above, your honour is once again requested to convene the supplementary DPC for the vacancies 2013 and consider the request of officers for repatriation to their parent circle.  

          We hope that an early action will be taken in these issues.  

          Yours sincerely,
 (Vilas Ingale)
General Secretary
