Circle Secretary writes Chief PMG on grievances of IP/ASP Cadre

A copy of the letter No.AIAIPASP/Corr-1/7-08 dated 02.07.2008
addressed to the CPMG is reproduced below for information of our members.

Sub: Grievances of IP/ASP Cadre in Orissa Circle

Respected Sir,
A kind reference is invited to the letter No.AIAIASP/Corr-2/5-08 dated 28.05.2008 of this Association (copy enclosed) requesting your goodself to look into some of the major problems of our cadre. But the members of our cadre continue to face the problems as before.
2. The eligible members of our cadre have been waiting for the time-bound promotion under ACP since last more than two and a half years. The matter has been persistently brought to the notice of successive CPMsG repeatedly by the Association and by the individual members as well, but to no avail. There is no end to the wait. The members of our cadre now increasingly get a feeling that they can always be taken for granted in as much as the fact that no other cadre in the Circle has suffered like us. With every passing day, the feeling of frustration of the concerned members of the cadre is rising so high that further delay in issue of orders for ACP may drive them to a situation where they would sit in Dharana in front of CPMG’s Office to invite attention of all concerned to their plight.
3. Ad hoc promotion of Inspectorial staff to ASP grade was requested for consideration simultaneously with the ad hoc promotion to PS Gr.B cadre. But the eligible members are still waiting for it. A number of ASPs have been continuing on ad hoc promotion for a long time now without their ad hoc promotion to ASP grade being regularized.
4. Request made time and again for inter-region transfer of IPs/ASPs ( who had represented for it) has not found favour with the administration though there is scope for it( during ad hoc promotion of ASPs besides in normal cases of existing vacancies).
5. The AAOs irrespective of their assignment are provided with residential telephones and getting reimbursement of telephone expenses up to the limit of Rs.848/- per month without consideration of their so called operational and functional justification. But in the case of IPs/ASPs functional and operational justification for granting residential / mobile telephone and allowing reimbursement of charges therefor is always questioned though everybody knows that the operational and functional justification for residential/mobile telephone to IPs/ASPs is far greater than that of AAOs. The request of the cadre for enhancing the monthly limit of telephone expenses (landline and mobile) to Rs.750/- and provision of residential/mobile telephone to all the members of our cadre because of the typical nature of their duty, is pending for decision since long while the members of the cadre continue to incur expenses from their own pocket.
6. The Association, therefore, requests your goodself to be kind enough to bestow your personal attention to the aforesaid grievances of our cadre in the Department’s interest.

With regards,
Yours faithfully,

(B B Mohanty)
Circle Secretary
