Due to the consistent efforts put by this association the Recruitment Rules for the post of Chief Accounts Officer and Administrative Officer have been sent by the board to UPSC for its approval with requisite documents as per their checklist on 15.03.2013.
Today (18.03.2010) the file pertaining to DPC to the grade of Chief Accounts Officer was submitted to UPSC again for its approval and to obtain an early date to conduct DPC upto 2009-2010.
The Recruitment Rules for the post of Inspector was again submitted back to DoP&T. Though this association is having its own reservations on the proposed amendment of Recruitment Rules to the post of Inspector and several submissions were made by this association on the above issue, the department has forwarded the file again back to DoP&T owing to the pressure mounted by some section of people which is unwarranted and will bring huge disappointment among a larger section of its employees.
This association will keep impressing upon the board to ensure that the existing Ministerial Officers are not affected by the proposed amendment in the Inspector RR.
Our President Shri. Ashim Pramanik has met Member (Service Tax) at Kolkotta today and apprised her our concern over the above issues. Madam Majumdar has assured that these issues will be taken up with Member (P&V) for early redressal.

Though this association is
putting all its best possible efforts before the CBEC to conduct long pending DPC
to the grade of Chief Accounts Officer it appears that there is a lack
of co-ordination among various sections / departments and want of sincere and
consistent efforts which are coming in the way of achieving the same. The promotion to the grade of Administrative
Officer, even on an Ad-hoc basis, is also held up for quite some time owing to
similar display of indifference by the Authorities, concerned, towards the well
being of Ministerial Officers.
We would like to mention here
that the members of this association are losing their patience and every month number
of officers are retiring without getting their legitimate promotion. This Association right from 2009 is pursuing
the issue of CAO DPC through written submissions and several oral requests
during discussions with several Board Officers.
Every time it took several
months for the department to compile the deficiencies/data pointed out by the
UPSC and after the deficiencies were rectified and sent a back to the UPSC, the
UPSC immediately comes out with another list of names where by deficiencies in ACRs
gradings or the integrity certificate / Certificate imposing penalty if any are
This Association is bemused
about the oblivion response of the department, as the department is not able to
set right the deficiencies in one go. So
far the UPSC has returned the CAO DPC file back to the department more than 6
times during the past 3 years pointing the same reasons with fresh list of
names, having deficiencies.
questions needs to be answered by the department as to whether:-
1. Why the department has not raised the issue
before the UPSC as whenever the CAO file goes to UPSC it comes with fresh list
of names pointing deficiencies and why the UPSC has not pointed all the
deficiencies at once?
2. Why the department is not showing the same
interest when they conduct DPC to the grade of Assistant Commissioner from
Supdt./ Appraiser of CBEC?
3. Why the draft Seniority list to the grade of
Administrative Officer published during last year is not being considered for
DPC to the grade of CAO?
seems the department is also mulling over the same fate for the DPC to the
grade of Administrative Officer as in the case of Chief Administrative
June it will be 1 full year over as the department has directed to stop promotion
to the grade of Administrative Officer citing some objections raised by the
DoPT. Due to this the promotion to the
grade of AO is also not taking place throughout the country.
the DoP&T has cleared the Draft Recruitment Rules to the post of AO and has
sent the file to UPSC for further necessary action. The higher authorities of CBEC has assured
this association that once the draft RR is approved by the DoP&T necessary
instructions will be given to the field formations to continue the Ad-hoc promotions
till the Regular RRs to the post of AO are notified.
CBEC is neither giving promotion to the worst affected DOS/AO after putting 15
to 20 years of Service in their respective cadres nor upgrading their Payscales
as demanded by this Association right throughout the last decade. There is a gross slump on the activity of the
department towards the Administrative Cadre.
It will not be out of place to mention that one fine day the department
will realize that there will be no DOS / AO to scrutinize even the Pension
papers of the Officers who are getting retired and the Officers/Staff of CBEC
will be left in lurch.
is high time that the department needs to realize and stop giving promises before
the Association that the issues will be sorted out at the earliest whenever
they raises before the higher Authorities.
Association is left with no other option and its members are losing their
patience and will be forced to go on a series of agitation programme. We are not threatening the department, but it
is the apathy of the department which the Association needs to point out how it
lacks to conduct the DPC for a single cadre right from the year 2007.
latest letter addressed to the Chairperson and copy endorsed to Member
(P&V) on the above issue is posted here. (Click to view)
Cadre-restructure there was a sustained effort from the authorities of CBDT to
get their re-structuring file cleared by the Committee of Secretaries during
the last week of February. We also
anticipate same efforts are being put down by our department too since our
restructuring file is pending before the DoP&T quite a long time.
The Seniority case pending
before the Supreme Court is being listed in the weekly list every week and it
is not being listed in the daily list as these cases are yet to be heard by the
Bench. So far all these weeks some part
heard cases, some media related cases are coming up for hearing and the status
of our case remains same. I take this
opportunity to request our members to remain calm, vigilant and strive for the
success of our case. I cannot write more
than this in the blog about our case.
Certain things cannot be spelt out.
I hope, the case will come up soon and definitely
there will be good news for our cadre.
