The Additional Director General,
Sub: Promotion of UDC to the post of Assistant on 18 years Combined Seniority of LDC & UDC.
This is in continuation of this Association letter of even number dated 12/07/2010 wherein it was requested to consider promotion to the post of Assistant on the combined seniority of LDC & UDC. But we have not received any information on the progress of the action taken so far and such the matter was discussed in the General Body Meeting of the Association, held at Mumbai on 15-16 September 2011.
While discussing the matter the delegates pointed out that as per DoPT manual LDCs have to do the work of dispatch/diary, copying, typing and other minor administrative work only. Whereas in NSSO offices especially the Regional Offices of FOD major subjects, viz. Establishment, Accounts, Store, TA/Medical, Budget, MPER, Reconciliation, NPS Pension maintenance, Pension cases, Pay Fixation etc. are rotated among LDCs and UDCs through periodical work allocation. Moreover, on an average it takes 15-16 years for an LDC to get promotion to the post of UDC in NSSO Offices especially in FOD Regions whereas DoPT provides only 8 years of qualifying service for promotion to the post of UDC. Thus considering the time period taken and also the quality work/section allocated to the LDCs from the date of their joining as LDC in the FOD Offices, it is requested that promotion to the post of Assistant may be made on combined service put in the post of the LDC & UDC together and amendments in the recruitment rule of the Assistant may be made accordingly.
Till the amendment of recruitment rule is finalized all vacancies of the Assistant may be filled by the UDCs on ad-hoc basis.
An early action on the matter is requested please.
