Promotion under ACP Scheme- Wait does not end.

We are still awaiting orders for ACP to eligible Inspectorial Staff. The matter was taken up in the last bi-monthly meeting with DPS(HQ) who had assured that the orders would be issued shortly. The orders were expected by 10.03.2008 as per assurance. But it is leant from Staff Section of Circle Office that the processing is still going on and it will take some more time for issue of orders. Going by the preparation and the present position of the case, it appears that we may have to wait beyond 31.03.2008. We are pursuing the case persistently with staff section of CO for issue of orders early.
