8. PROMOTION TO THE POST OF OFFICE SUPDT

Ref:- CBR No.28, dated 11.1.2012.

OFFICE REPORT

In pursuance of above resolution, the matter was sent to PDDE, Lucknow vide this office letter No121/ADM/2012, Dated 12/1/2012 for their advice in the matter. The command took approx 10 months time in tendering advice, in between Smt. Rama Negi, Officiating Office Supdt. filed a writ petition before the Hon’ble High Court, Nainital. Now the PDDE Lucknow through their letter No. 9895/LC-6,dated 23/11/2012 has opined that the matter of promotion to the post of Office Supdt. is under the power of Board, hence the matter be again put up before the board and decide the matter as per rule and as per service profile of the incumbent.

The facts which I want to bring to the notice of the Board is that this office is facing a lot of problem due to non promotion to the post of Office Supdt, Due to this all line of promotion is stuck up. Further it is stated that Smt. Rama Negi has been officiating the post of Office Supdt for last approx 18 months. The charge of Office Supdt was handed over to Smt. Rama Negi by the Board vide its resolution No.10, dated 11.1.12 and Board also accepted that Rama Negi is senior as per rule vide CBR Nol.28, dated 11.1.12. It is pertinent to mention here that instead of incentivize & boost the morale and motivation of the deserving persons they are made to sit indefinitely for their due rights which ultimately lead to frustration. The matter of promotion is discussed with Cantt. Board Legal Advisor Ranikhet as well as with Senior Counsel of Hon’ble High Court Nainital. In this regard an advice sought from CBLA, Ranikhet as well as Senior Counselor of Hon’ble High Court, Nainital that whether this office can put up the matter before the Board for decision, as the matter is pending before the Court. In this regard both the advocate i.e. Cantt. board Legal Adviser as well as Senior Counsel of Hon’ble High Court tendered their valuable advice that as per CFSR 1937, DOP& T circular No20011/188,Estt(D), dated 12.12.1988, service profile, Smt Rama Negi is fit case and legally justified for promotion to the post of Office Supdt which is already accepted by the Board in its CBR No28,.Dated 11.1.12. The CBLA, Ranikhet also opined that despite the case is pending before the court the Board can decide it, otherwise it is creating multiplicity of litigation which is neither in favour of Board nor in favour of the party.

Hence, the matter is again put up before the Board for taking appropriate and befitting decision in the light of opinion of the PDDE, Hqrs, CC, Lucknow, Cantt Board Legal Adviser, Ranikhet and Senior Counsel of Hon,ble High Court, Nainital Uttarakhand

Relevant file alongwith advise of PDDE, Hqrs, CC, Lucknow, Cantt Board Legal Adviser, Ranikhet and Senior Counsel of Hon,ble High Court, Nainital Uttarakhand are placed on the table.

RESOLUTION

8. Considered and approved. The Board discussed the agenda in detail & examined the rule position thoroughly & minutely & the Board unanimously resolved that Smt.

Hence she is promoted from the post of Accountant to Office Sudpt w.e.f. the date of her taking charge as an Officiating Office Sudpt i.e. Feb 01st, 2012 as per rules mentioned in the agenda side.

Further, it is bring to the notice of the Board that both the resolutions were challaged by Shri G.R. Arya in the Hon’ble High Court, Nainital vide his Writ Petition No. 352 of 2013(SS) Gopal Ram v/s Union of India & Others.

Both writ petition are decided by a common judgment dated 25.2.2014 passed by the Hon’ble High Court (single bench) has observed that Shri Gopal Ram Arya was appointed on the post of Revenue Supdt. in the year 2005 and Smt. Rama Negi was appointed on the post of Accountant in the year 2009 therefore Shri Gopal Ram Arya is senior to Smt. Rama Negi. The Hon’ble High Court further ordered that a departmental proceeding against Shri Gopal Ram Arya be initiated within 03 months from the date of order to finalize the pending disciplinary proceeding pursuant to charge sheet dated 28-11-2011. If the charge sheet is not concluded against the petitioner within 03 months or no fault on part of petitioner charge sheet shall be deemed to have been revoked and non est. Thereafter denovo exercise in accordance with law shall be undertaken to fill the post of Office Supdt. by the way of promotion. Shri Gopal Ram Arya if otherwise is eligible shall be considered for promotion.

On perusal of above decision, it is come to the notice that the Hon’ble High Court has ignored and even did not mention the order of Union of India vide DOPT Circular No. 20011/1/88.Estt. (D), dated 12th Dec. 1988 which was the strong base of Cantt. Board Resolution No.28, dated 11.1.2012 and No.8, dated 25.3.2014

It is also pertinent to mention here that petitioner Mr. G.R.Arya has also given an application dated 04.03.2014 to this office for compliance of Court’s judgment dated 25.2.2014 and Smt. Rama Negi has also given an application dated 10.3.2014. Both the applications have been sent for legal advise.

In this connection this office has sought legal opinion from our Legal Advisors. The Legal Advisors opined that seniority and merit of Mr. Gopal Ram and Mrs. Rama Negi is contrary to the evidence placed on record and the statutory law. Therefore the same is liable to be challenged before the Division Bench of the Hon’ble High Court by filling an appropriate Special Appeal on behalf of the Cantt. Board within a period of one month.

Further the matter is being put up before the Board for taking steps in this case if Board thinks fit;-

1. Board may file Special leave petition against the judgement passed by the Hon,ble High Court, Ninital on dated 25.2.2014 within a month.

For this purpose Board may constitute an inquiry committee and presenting officer to inquire into the charge which was not accepted by Shri G.R.Arya in his confession letter dated 5.12.2012.

Arya, dated 04-03-2014 application of Smt. Rama Negi, Office Superintendent dated 10-03-2014 regarding this issue are placed on the table.
