Ref: O.M. No. B-12011/1/2008-Ad.III dated 10.12.10 addressed to TKR Pillai, General
Secretary, All India Association of Ministerial Staff (Group C), NSSO (FOD), Bhopal.
Our attention has been drawn to the stand taken by the Ministry that the existing All India Association of Ministerial Staff (Group C), NSSO (FOD) Bhopal has to be bifurcated into Ministerial Staff Group B and Ministerial Staff Group C following guidelines on classification issued by the DOPT.
In this connection it is to be stated that so long as the recruitment rules are not changed, the classification of the post of Assistant with grade Pay 4200 would continue to be group ‘C’. Until the revised recruitment rules for the post of Assistant NSSO (FOD) are promulgated, the Assistants in the Department may not be legally classified as Group B. This is more because of the fact that no rules promulgated under Article 309 of the Constitution could be altered by executive fiats. As such the General Secretary of the All India Association of Ministerial Staff (Gr. C), NSSO (FOD), Bhopal has to be allowed to function as General Secretary till the next conference is held and someone elected as General Secretary or the recruitment rules are amended whichever is earlier. This apart the Staff side has already taken up the issue of classification and its impact on the recognition rules with the Department of Personal.
We, therefore, request you to kindly issue necessary direction to the concerned that the Status quo may be maintained till the amendment to the recruitment rules are notified or some one is elected as the General Secretary at the next conference.
