An important comment from our member

Promotions and postings to the post of Private Secretary (Gazetted) GCS Group ‘B’ in Pay Band-2: Rs.9300-34800 + GP Rs.4600/- has been issued vide Directorate Order No.10-2/2011-SPG dtd.04.04.2012. All the officials promoted are already in GP Rs. 4600/- on a/c of 2nd MACP. Only those who have been promoted & posted at the same station would accept promotion. They will also not get any pay fixation benefit due to promotion in the same Pay Band and Grade Pay. On the contrary they will loose bonus (Rs. 7000/- approximately).

Similarly, promotions and postings to the post of Senior Private Secretary (Gazetted) GCS Group ‘B’ in Pay Band-2 : Rs.9300-34800 + GP Rs.4800/- has been issued vide Directorate Order No.10-3/2011-SPG dtd.04.05.2012. Almost all the officials who have been promoted are already getting GP Rs.4800/- on a/c of 3rd MACP and except two all other are at the fag end of retirement. Only those who have been promoted & posted at the same station would accept the promotion. They will also not get any pay fixation benefit due to promotion in same Pay Band and Grade Pay.

The above situation has occurred due to non-implementation of recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission in right spirit. Had parity with CSSS as recommended by the Sixth CPC been given, this situation would not have been arisen.

There is only one entry grade for Group ‘A' i.e. Pay Band-3 : Rs.15600-39100 + GP Rs.5400/-. Likewise only one entry grade for Group ‘B’ i.e. Pay Band-2 : 9300-34800 + GP Rs. 4800/- should have been given. But in some Departments, Group ‘B’ (Gazetted) is in GP Rs.4600/- and in some Departments Group ‘B’ (Gazetted) has been given GP Rs. 4800 & after 4 years GP 5400 in Pay Band-3. Why this disparity ?

This minor category always remained loyal to the administration, never participated in any strike and worked in exigencies, has been neglected badly.
