Bimonthly meeting with PMG SK Region Bengaluru


DOPT trying best to clear backlog of promotions: Dr Jitendra Singh : Press Information Bureau

The Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) of the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr. Jitendra Singh said that the Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT) is trying its best to clear the backlog of promotions which had accumulated for several years. He said, while the Government led by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi follows a policy of zero tolerance towards corrupt and non-performing officers, at the same time it is also supportive towards performing officers of integrity.
Dr Jitendra Singh was responding to a delegation of Central Secretariat employees who called on him here today and sought his intervention for timely promotion of lower grade staff members. They also submitted a memorandum on behalf the Central Secretariat MTS Association, wherein it was submitted that many of the lowermost working professionals in the Government of India get deprived of even single promotion during their entire service tenure.

Dr Jitendra Singh said, in order to bring in the ease of governance as well as objectivity in empanelments, the government has, in the last three years, improvised upon the procedures so as to ensure that there are no subjective preferences involved in carrying out the promotions. The procedures have been made more hi-tech using sophisticated technology tools to minimize the human interface, he added.

He said that in the past, every government took credit for bringing in a new legislation or rule while this government has done away with nearly 1500 rules which were either obsolete or had become irrelevant with the passage of time. All this is meant not only to ensure effective and timely delivery of outcomes for the public, but also to enable the employees to perform to the best of their ability, he added.

Dr Jitendra Singh said, he himself personally feels disturbed to come across cases where some of the employees working in the lowest rung of administration spend their entire service tenure of 30 to 35 years without securing a single promotion. He said, he has discussed the issue with all the senior officers in the Ministry and several innovative means are being evolved to avoid stagnation at middle and lower rungs of administration.

Dr Jitendra Singh also regretted that in a large number of cases, stagnation in promotions was the result of litigation amongst the employees themselves and even though the DoPT tries its best to put forward its view in the court of law, the delay becomes inevitable.

Respected Madam,

          IP/ASP Association would like to invite your kind attention towards its letter of even number dated 30/9/2017 and 11/11/2017 whereby it was requested to call for records for convening regular DPC for promotion to PS Gr. B cadre for the year 2017-18. But till date Directorate has not issued the list of officers in the zone of consideration to Circles. All are well aware that this year DPC is badly delayed for the one or other reasons.   

         Furthermore it also bring to your kind notice that a large number of JTS vacancies are lying vacant in each and every Circles since long and PS Gr. B officers are officiating against these posts creating resultant vacancies in Gr. B in Circles and imbalance thereof upto IP/ASP level affecting timely promotion in each cadre and repatriation of deserving PS Gr. B officers to their home circle. Similarly, large numbers of PS Gr. B posts are vacant in each circle. Secondly, result of PS Gr. B examination is awaited.

          It is therefore requested to kindly direct SPG Division of Directorate to either circulate the names of the officers who are in the zone of consideration for promotion to the PS Gr. B cadre or give cut off year of IP batch in each category (OC, SC and ST) and call for their APARs and other required documents for the scrutiny etc. by allotting circle wise dates.

          We hope that your honour will look into this vital issue personally and take appropriate action to avoid further consequences.   

Yours sincerely,
