PS Group B Recruitment Rules- Amendments delayed for want of creation memos of Group B Posts- Appeal by GS to all members

Dear Members,

All members, Circle Secretaries and CHQ Office Bearers were made aware about the preparation of Revised Recruitment Rules of PS Gr. B cadre by the Directorate through appeal dated 15th February 2014.
It was already informed to all members, Circle Secretaries, CHQ Office Bearers that this issue was discussed at length in subject committee meeting held during AIC Ahmedabad in which General Secretary explained the present position in detailed and requested to all delegates, visitors and Circle Secretaries who attended AIC to search/find out creation memos of PS Gr. B cadre since 1993 at their Divisional Office / Regional Office and Circle Office, as 56 creation memos of PS Gr. B posts are not readily available at Directorate and Nodal Ministry has demanded these for extending approval for amendment of Recruitment Rules of PS Gr. B cadre. Actually 76 PS Gr. B cadre posts were created during 1993 to 1996 by downgrading some JTS/STS posts and out of these, 20 posts creation memos are available at Directorate. At AIC everybody has assured that after returning to their headquarters they will make efforts to search out the memo and will inform to GS or concerned CS.

It was requested to each and every member of this Association on 15/2/2014 through this blog to examine the establishment register at their office (i.e.DO/RO/CO/Fgn Post/CSD/RSD/PSD) within 2 to 3 days and intimate the details of PS Gr. B post created in their unit/office since 1993 to General Secretary by email, as this issue is vital one othewise we will lose some PS Gr. B posts. Hon'ble CAT Chandigarh Bench (In OA 1328/HP/2011 & 135/HP/2011) also directed Department to submit the progress made in revision of Recruitment Rules of PS Gr. B cadre. On the request of Learned Counsel on behalf of Department, matter has now been posted to 05.03.2014 for submission of progress report.
But as on date GS has received the information only from Circle Secretaties of HP, Kerala and Odisha Circles. This clearly shows that our members are not interested for preparation revised RRs of PS Gr. B / not reduce the share of General Line officials in PS Gr. B examination / Sr. PM examination.

Yours faithfully,

(Vilas Ingale)
General Secretary
