P.A.s OF 2005-08 BATCH TO WRITE TO THE CHIEF PMG FOR THEIR SENIORITY TO THE SUBSEQUENTLY RECRUITED CANDIDATES : DIVISIONAL SECRETARIES PLEASE NOTE
After a lot of turmoil, successive court orders and consistent organisational programs and persuasion, P.A.s recruited against the vacancies for the years 2005-08 have been finally appointed. But there are several types of discrepancies and discriminations in the divisions in their treatment. Only a part of the judgements has been implemented by appointing them, but the issue of seniority or the period regularisation has not yet been resolved. The Circle Union had discussion with the Chief PMG, West Bengal Circle, but the issue has not yet been clinched. As a result, subsequently recruited PAs would be treated senior to them.
In a meeting today with them at the Circle Union office, it has been decided that they will approach the Circle Head through proper channel (i.e., through respective Divisional/ Unit Head) seeking their seniority. Holding the legal proceedings good, the efforts to exhaust departmental remedies will also be thus made simultaneously. Circle Union will continue pursuing their applications.
A model application is drafted below for guidance, which may be somewhat altered depending on the local situation, in consultation with the divisional/Circle Union.
The Chief Postmaster General,
West Bengal Circle,
(Through Proper Channel)
Sub: Prayer for granting service regularisation/seniority.
Your kind attention is invited to the fact that despite my selection as a successful P.A. of ................ division against the vacancies for the year ......... and completion of induction training (if applicable), I was not given appointment for ....... months/years for reasons best known to my authorities.
However, subsequent upon judicial pronouncements, when finally I have been given appointment and joined on ..........., I am being treated as junior to the PAs recruited in the same batch but allowed to join before me, and even junior to the subsequently recruited PAs, though most of them have joined service only with in-house training but drawing salary in entitled scale of pay and grade pay.
As such, they are naturally treated senior to us in terms of pay and service seniority and will be enjoying the benefits like MACP before us. In this way, this would be a permanent deprivation to us throughout my service span.
Therefore, I beg most humbly to you to kindly consider the situation sympathetically and arrange to pass such orders so as to provide me service seniority to the subsequently recruited PAs and regularisarion at par with the all PAs in the same batch with all benefits, for the act of which I shall remain grateful.
(Name & Designation)
Please get the final draft checked by your divisional secretary and consult Circle Union, if necessary. Please send a copy to the Circle Union.
