Subject : Regarding posting and transfer of willing Senior PS Group ‘B’ officers in Circle Office / Region Office, over the Ad-hoc PS Group ‘B’ arrangements existing in Circle Office/Region Office.
With due deference it is to brought to your kind notice that ad-hoc arrangements in PS Group ‘B’ cadre particularly in Circle Office / Region office is in vogue for last so many years. Needless to mention, these officers (Ad-hoc arrangements) are drawing desk allowance of Rs.1500/- per month in addition to the officiating pay fixtures. While the senior regular PS Group ‘B’ officers are being posted at a far flung place, at the same time, these ad-hoc officers are enjoying posting in the Circle Office/Region Office with additional monetary benefits. In any case, as it may be, these juniors are beneficial to their seniors, pending up gradation of allowances consequent upon implementation of recommendations of 7th CPC. It is learnt that desk allowance is expected to enhance between Rs 3000/- to Rs.5000/- in the coming weeks. A need of hour is to essentially give fair deal to the deserving, entitle and legitimate person.
This Association wishes to request the concerned authorities to direct all Circles/Regions to consider posting of willing PS Group ‘B’ officers in the Circle Office / Region Office rather than to continue with protracted Ad-hoc arrangements with monetary benefits.
With profound regards.
