ITANAGAR, Anguishing over the non-convening of the Department Promotion Committee’s (DPC) meeting on regular interval of time as per state government declaration, Arunachal Pradesh Civil Service Officers Association (APCSOA) has served to state government address the demand within two weeks.
As per representation submitted to the chief secretary circulated in social media, the APSCOA said DPC meetings were not convened since last year thereby depriving the promotion of APCS officers.
One of the APCS officers whose name is not to be mentioned here told that there are more than 400 APCS officers including those who have been appointed in the last year whose promotion has been delayed and also demoralized the zeal of the officers who are very sincere and dedicated toward their service and work assigned.
If DPC are held timely there would be more avenues for promotion, most importantly young officers will get an opportunity of promotion, if the DPC meeting is conducted in the proper way, added another APCS officer.
From the sources, an expert committee headed by Kaling Tayeng, IAS, Commissioner was constituted after the assurance made by Chief Minister Pema Khandu in the floor of the Assembly on the issue raised by MLA Hayeng Mangfi.
Subsequently, the report was too placed before the house in next assembly session March, 2021 but as per sources informed that it is yet to be submitted and no proper initiation has been done so far either to the organisation or the deserving candidates, which is showing the lackadaisical attitude of higher officials, said officer.
Few APCS officers informed that despite reminder representation there is no any communication from the state government. However an attempt was made to get clarification from top officers but in vain.
