After submitting the revised cadre restructuring proposal in the month of January 2014, demanding for increasing the posts in Grade I, P.S. and Sr.P.S. cadre, the Directorate in the last week of February 2014 has forwarded the minutes of the meeting which is being forwarded herewith.
In support of our demand for increase in the no. of posts of P.S. and Sr.P.S. we have supplied the copies of the orders of Min. of Defence and Income Tax Departments which have increased the posts and even created the posts also. During the course of discussions when ADG informed DDG that P.S. and Sr.P.S. are identified posts and there are norms laid down by DOPT, we took objection to that and apprised DDG madam about how the other Ministries & Departments and DOPT itself increased the posts. DDG Madam informed that we can increase the posts and the supportive documents have given strength to our demand.
But, unfortunately, Directorate in the minutes informed that ““The official side was also of the view that the proposal should not contain any new creation of posts and also that functional hierarchy of attachment of stenographers should also be not disturbed”.
Directorate has casted a shadow on the genuine demand of the association by saying that the functional hierarchy of attachment of stenographers should also not be disturbed.
In this connection, it is proposed to take up this issue urgently with D.G. (Posts), Member (P) and DDG(Estt), expressing our displeasure and also to accede to our genuine demand. If they are not acceptable to our demand, we will demand nothing less than absolute parity on par with CSSS. Hence, our Assn. shall be constrained to go on trade union activities as would be decided in the CWC Meeting to be convened shortly in case our justified demands are not met.
Please go through the minutes and cause to express your opinions immediately, so as to enable me to give a FAX to Directorate without any further loss of time.
