Regularise services of officials on ad hoc basis: TribunalApril 22nd, 2011 - 10:02 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, April 22 (IANS) The Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) has asked the home ministry and the Delhi government to regularise the services of two officials, promoted to assistant commissioners of police (ACPs) but on an ad hoc basis, and notify the recruitment rules for the post.
It said that the two applicants cannot just remain in a post on ad hoc basis for 15 years without any heed being paid to their plight.
The tribunal’s principal bench comprising Justice V.K. Bali and L.K. Joshi said: “It would appear prima facie obvious that any person promoted in 1996 should have been regularised within a reasonable time.”
“MHA (ministry of home affairs) has simply washed its hands off the issue, by stating that the problem was entirely the creation of Delhi government and that the MHA has no responsibility in this matter,” said the order, earlier this week but only released Friday.
“The attitude of the MHA is unfortunate inasmuch as it is clearly mentioned in the counter affidavit of Delhi government, that the recruitment rules for the post of ACP (Programmer) have been pending with the MHA since 2002.”
“MHA and Delhi government shall notify the recruitment rules for the post of ACP (Programmer) within three months of the receipt of a certified copy of this order by taking suitable care that the applicants have to be regularised within reasonable time of their promotion in 1996, that is, within one or at most two years of their promotion, if a period of probation of one/two year (s) is provided,”
The CAT was hearing an application filed by Virender Singh and Gyanendra Singh Awana, who said though they were promoted as ACP (Programmer) in May 1996, yet their services have not been regularised even after of 15 years and that they have not been inducted into Delhi Andaman & Nicobar Islands Police Service (DANIPS).
The applicants further said that the scales of pay of Rs.8000-13,500 and Rs.10,000-15,200 sanctioned after four and eight years of service in the grade of ACP, on par with DANIPS, has not been granted to them.
