Sub: Request for convening of timely DPCs and repatriation of PS Gr. B officers to Home Circle.

Respected Madam,
Your kind attention is invited to this Association’s letter of even number dated 16/6/2014 vide which it was requested to convene pending JTS DPC, supplementary DPC for promotion to cadre of PS Gr. B and issue repatriation order of PS Gr. B officers to their home circles, but till date these vital issues are not resolved despite several telephonic calls to the concerned officers of Directorate.
This Association would like to again bring to your kind notice that a large number of STS/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. Secondly, supplementary DPC for the promotion to the cadre of PS Gr. B cadre is badly delayed for one or other the reasons best known to Directorate and regular DPC for the year 2014-15 is also overdue. Last year Directorate has timely convened regular DPC for the promotion to the cadre of PS Gr. B vide memo No. 9-33/2013-SPG dated 10/10/2013 and issued promotional orders of 156 officers.  
It is therefore once again requested to your kind honour to pass an orders to (a) convene pending JTS DPC for the year 2013-14 without further delay, and also start the process for the year 2014-15 (b) call for the records from all circles to convene regular DPC for promotion to the cadre of PS Gr. B for year 2014-15 and simultaneously convene supplementary DPC for PS Group B for 22 vacancies of 2013-14 (c) issue repatriation orders of PS Gr. B /JTS officers to their home circle against vacancies up to December 2014 before ensuing Ganesh Festival.
