Sub: Stay on promotions ordered by Calcutta High Court – Reg
A kind reference is invited to our letter 23.07.2010 and 30.08.2010 on the above subject.
Despite our repeated requests for directing the cadre controlling authorities to conduct and keep the results of DPC s ready, no directions has been issued by the Board. It doesn’t require much elucidation to bring home the point that such an act on the part of the Board would have brought a scrap of confidence among the employees who are waiting for their first promotion for more than 2 decades. We regret to point out that the promptness shown in communicating the stay gets entangled in red tape when the lifting of the stay is required to be communicated.
The interim order of Calcutta High Court issued on 27.08.2010 has now been published in Court Website and we request that the issue may not be procrastinated further by insisting on a certified copy. (which is already issued and in care of Kolkata Chief Commissioner)
In terms of the interim order, the only condition precedent for issuing the regular promotion order is the issuance of order consequent to the review of DPC held on 09.09.2004 in Kolkata Commissionerate. Hence we submit that the most effective way in hastening the matter would be to fix a time frame for Kolkata CCA for issuing the orders consequent to review DPC and a date for all CCA s to issue orders in the zone, rather that waiting for a compliance report from Calcutta to issue directions to other CCA s. I.e. if the final date fixed for Kolkata CCA to issue order is 10.09.2010, other CCA s may be required to issue order on 13.09.2010. We would like to reiterate that the date of effect of the promotion orders should at least be from 01.07.2010.
We also wish to highlight the fact that already several officers who were in line for promotion in the calendar DPC have retired during the month of July and August there by losing out on their pension benefits and social status. Hence we request that the directions in terms of the preceding paragraph may be issued immediately so that the similar officers retiring in this month at least would be saved.
