Subject: Holding of DPC for promotion to the cadre of PS Gr. B for the year 2017 and 2018 & declaration of result of LDCE PS Gr B held on 18.12.2016.

Respected Madam,

                This association is highly obliged for declaring supplementary result of LDCE PS Group ”B”  result for the year 2012.This association also urges for early declaration of result  of LDCE held on 18.12.2016 for promotion to PS Group ”B” as well as for early convening of DPC for  promotion to PS Group- B cadre on seniority basis. The PS Group “B” exam was held on 18.12.2016, almost 15 months ago, but result is not declared yet . Many candidates are eagerly waiting for results so that they may plan accordingly as this month is most crucial being the end/beginning of academic year of children.

                                The process of convening DPC for year 2017 and 2018 is yet not started by the Directorate which is adversely effecting due and deserving promotion of the officers. It is painful to point out that every year there is delay in processing and holding of DPC for the promotion to the cadre of PS GR B for one or other reason. Para- 3 of  the the Department of Posts (Personnel Division) letter no. 25-10/2014-SPG dated 09.07.2014 coupled  with para-7 of DoP&T OM No.  22011/998- EStt (D) dated 08.09.1998 may kindly be revisited which provides that a DPC may take into account all clear expected vacancies by retirement in the concerned grade as well as chain vacancies on account of retirement etc. In the grades, like PS Group B, future vacancies can easily be forecasted in the same vacancy year and action to fill up such posts should be initiated in time. The following table may kindly be seen which contains information regarding the vacancy position in IP/ASP/PS Gr-B/JTS/STS in some circles.

                From the above table, it can be seen that huge number of posts in IP/ASP/PS Group ‘B’ cadre are lying vacant in all the Circles and IPs/ASPs are forced to hold additional charge of these posts. It is quite fair to conclude that such IPs/ASPs cannot perform reasonably well in respect of all units entrusted to them and cannot keep watch over the subjects of additional units which may lead to occurrence of fraud. And if any fraud occurs, none hears the voice of such IPs/ASPs and fixes them as offenders.

Non declaration/delay in declaration of LDCE result and non convening of DPC are not less than denial of legitimate and due right of IPs/ ASPS. Even after serving the department for more than 25 years in IP/ASP cadre, officers are not getting timely promotion and they are forced to work on ad-hoc basis for years together.   In every circle,  senior  ASPs are officiating against vacant post of PS Group B from years together but service rendered by them will not earn benefit being ad hoc arrangement is only for 11 months. The officers officiating on ad-hoc basis are not sure of their tenure & place of posting and an element of uncertainty is always around.  It is also painful to mention seniority of such officiating IPs/ASPs vary from Circle to Circle i.e. in some of the circles IPs of 1999 batch are officiating in the  vacant post of PSS Group B cadre and some of the circle IPs 2007 batch, which is causing dissatisfaction among the IPs/ASPs. Had the DPC and LDCE covering DoP&T instructions convened/conducted, such anomaly would have been averted. 

                                Therefore, kindly look into the matter and cause to declare result of LDCE held on 18.12.2016 as well as convening DPC for promotion PS Group ”B” and Circles may also be directed to fill all post of ASPs by convening immediate DPCs so that all get their due promotion in time. Action for filling up of vacant posts of Inspector should also be taken.

                                With profound regards. 

                                                                                                                                   Yours Sincerely

                                                                                                                                    (Rajiv Kumar)
                                                                                                                                    General Secretary.
