JTO to SDE Promotion – why much more delay and also who has Responsible?

Question is based on Seniority Fix up

1.Observation of SNEA (i) – Seniority fixation in the cadre of erstwhile ESTs ,then JEs and now JTO in erstwhile P&T, DOT and BSNL is being regulated strictly in accordance to the comprehensive instructions elucidated in the order of DG,P&T no 41-2/61-NCG dated 2.3.61 and 299/3/70-STA-11 dated 24.7.73. This arrangement has been and are being made for the last about five decades. This arrangement has been working in such a smooth and flawless manner that not a single litigation in JTO seniority fixation has taken place for the last fifty years. We request you to kindly put on hold immediately the order no 5-38/2009-pers iv dated 25.5.2010 to enable us to focus on shorting out the issue smoothly and expeditiously instead of getting bogged down in endless litigations and creating prolonged stalemate in promotion of JTO totes GrB . We are confident that the matter will be considered with seriousness and urgency it deserves. (letter addressed to Sh D.P.DE GM(EST) by GS SNEA(I) vide no SNEA(i)/CHQ/GM(E)/1/10-10 dated 1.10.10

Knowingly everything’s some people are over smart on the Rule. We know that actually their aim is only to delay the DPC up to the postings of competitive candidates & people behind them know very well that it cannot be a permanent one.
Now it is the right time to tell everybody that all are getting delayed only because of unnecessary, self motivated fabricated and manmade court cases, created by some of our own officers/Associations without knowing the long term effects. People should realize their mistakes them self, otherwise time only will make them realize. But at that time, they, themselves will be under court cases.




Wish a very happy & prosperous retired life to the executives retiring on 30-06-2021
