Panchayat Inspectors allege discrimination
DEPARTMENTAL SHARE OF PROMOTIONS
Baramulla, Feb 17: The Panchayat Inspectors of Rural Development Department have alleged that they are being denied departmental share of promotions.
The inspectors termed the move as “gross violation” of SRO 285, saying it allows 50 percent direct recruitment of officers including Block Development Officers and 50 percent non-gazetted employees of the rural development department including Panchayat supervisors, Panchayat inspectors, female project officers and headquarter assistants.
“Our departmental share is being diluted and officials other departments are being inducted as BDOs,” they said.
Elaborating they said 17 officials from the Agriculture Department have been confirmed as BDOs as per initial constitution circular, no 09 of 2009 dated 21-10-2009.
“After the initial constitution circular, it has been decided that further promotions in the departmental quota will be only entitled for the employees of the rural development, however 14 more posts of BDOs in the rural development department were allotted to officials of the other departments against the violation of SRO 285 and the initial constitution,” they said.
“There are still 11 posts of BDOS vacant in the department. However we apprehend that the blue- eyed officials of other departments will be inducted for the vacant posts” said an employee of Rural Development Department, wishing anonymity.
As per the SRO 285, the Panchayat inspector grade-1, having bachelor’s degree from any recognized University is entitled to be promoted as BDO in the departmental quota. Though there is dearth of Grade-1 panchayat inspectors who could be promoted as BDOs, however scores of Grade 2nd Panchayat inspectors whose promotion as Grade-1 is due, are still waiting for their promotions as the Departmental Promotion Committee (DPC) has not held its meeting from the last couple of years.
The Commissioner Secretary Rural Development Department Farooq Ahmad Peer said that there is dearth of Panchayat inspector Grade-1, in the department, who are eligible for promotion as Block
Development inspectors. “The director of the department has to look why the DPC has not been held. We are facing shortage of Grade-1 panchayat inspectors in the department. In this regard, we have already sent proposal to the Government,” he added.
