    Default RR Recruitment Rules - clarification

    I am working as Regional Officer (Sails), Group B Gaz. with PB 9300-34800 + GP 4600. It is an allied office of the Directorate General of Shipping. The Director General of Shipping is the appointing authority for all the Group A and B posts at the Directorate and its allied offices.

    The Government Shipping Office, Seamen’s Employment Office and Seamen’s Welfare Office are also some of the other allied offices of the Directorate General of Shipping.

    At present two different sets of Recruitment Rules are being followed in the Non tech. side.

    1) For all the Group ‘A’ and ‘B’ Non tech posts located inside the Directorate and the Regional Offices (Sails)
    2) Another for all the Group ‘A’ and ‘B’ Non tech posts located at the Government Shipping Office, Seamen’s Employment Office and Seamen’s Welfare Office i.e. The Shipping Masters, Dy. Shipping Masters, Asst. Shipping Masters, Director Seamen’s Employment Office, Dy. Director Seamen’s Employment Office, Asst. Director Seamen’s Employment Office and Seamen’s Welfare Officer.

    The above RRs were formulated prior to the implementation of 6th Pay Commission Recommendations.

    Though the RR for the post of Regional Officer (Sails) is included with the RR for all the Group ‘A’ and ’B’ Non tech posts located inside the Directorate the Regional Officer (Sails) is not the feeder category for any of the post in the Directorate.

    Likewise though the Seamen’s Welfare Officer is included with RR for all the Group ‘A’ and ’B’ located at the Government Shipping Office, Seamen’s Employment Office and Seamen’s Welfare Office, the Seamen’s Welfare Officer is not the feeder category for any of the posts in the same RR.

    The posts of Regional Officer (Sails), Dy. Shipping Masters, Asst. Shipping Masters, Dy. Director Seamen’s Employment Office, Asst. Director Seamen’s Employment Office and the Seamen’s Welfare Officer has been included under the same Pay Band with same Grade Pay i.e. PB 9300-34800 + GP 4600.

    The posts of Executive Officers which are located at the Directorate also carries the Pay Band 9300-34800 + GP 4600.

    The Seamen Welfare Officer is the promotional post for the Regional Officers (Sails).

    Dy. Shipping Masters and the Dy. Director Seamen’s Employment Office are the promotional post for the Asst. Shipping Masters and Asst. Director Seamen’s Employment Office.
    Shipping Masters and Director Seamen’s Employment Office are the promotional posts for Dy. Shipping Masters and the Dy. Director Seamen’s Employment Office

    Asst. Director General of Shipping which is located at the Directorate is the promotional posts for the Executive officers.

    I was recruited for the post of Regional Officer (Sails) and is still continuing in the same post without a single promotion for the past 14 years. One of my colleagues who was also recruited for the post of Regional Officer (Sails) 29 years ago is also continuing in the same post till date.

    But two officers recruited as Asst. Shipping Masters in 1999 have been promoted as Dy. Shipping Master and their further chances of promotions are bright as their RR is different.

    As per the DOPT OM No. AB 14017/61/2008-Estt.(RR) dated 24/3/2009, for each of the merged grades, a single set of Recruitment Rules is to be formulated and notified.

    In the light of the above facts I requested the Directorate to formulate a single RR for all the posts having Pay Band PB2 9300-34800 + Grade Pay 4600 under the Directorate, as per the above said OM in order to give equal promotional avenue for all the officers of the same grade but the same has been turned down for the following grounds.

    “ As per the existing Recruitment Rules the criteria for promotional avenue to the post having Grade Pay of Rs.4600 in Group ‘B’ Gaz. Post of DGS & allied offices is varies and proportionate according to the total sanctioned strength of each post of concerned department of DGS so that the persons in feeder grade of the concerned departments should not be deprived from the chance of getting further promotion. Hence there is no logic in formulating a single RR to render equal promotional avenue. “

    Kindly let me know who is right ?

    The readers are kindly requested to post their comments.

    As per DOPT OM dated 24/3/2009 a single set of Recruitment Rules is to be forumulated only in a case where the pay scales of two or more grades in a particular hierarchy have beeen merged by the 6CPC. For eg. if the scale of Asstt. Shipping Master and Dy. Shipping Master in a particular establishmet have been merged by the 6CPC, then obviously a single set of RR would need to be formulated to replace the existing RRs of the two posts. If this is the case then you have a point. However, there could be cases where two posts in a hierarchy may be required to have the same grade pay. Though this is not desirable it could be inescapable in some peculiar cases. What is required in your case is a sincere effort by the higher ups to go for a thorough cadre review so as to rationalise the cadres involved and also to create sufficient promotional avenues for its officers. I suggest that all the affected persons come together and submit representations to the higher authorities concerned. Till then you may have to stay content with MACP.

    Dear, As per the guidelines/instructions for framing recruitment rule in the light of pay commission orders (5th CPC) minimum qualifying years of service for promotion from the scale of pay of Rs. 5500-9000 to Rs. 6500-10500 was 3 years. Now the scale of pay of Rs.5000-8000 and Rs. 5500-9000 has been merged and GP of Rs. 4200 was given to both the above scales. As per DOPT OM No. AB 14017/61/2008-Estt. (RR) dated 24.3.2009 the minimum years of service for promotion for both 5000 and 5500 is fixed as 5 years. Earlier it was 5 years for Rs. 5000 basisc and 3 years for Rs.5500 basic. Can any body comment on this? Is there legal backing in taking out the benifit already enjoying (ie. 3years for Rs.5500 basic now changed as 5 years for both 5000 and 5500 basic)?
