Subject:- Promotion of Personal Assistant (PA) of CSSS to the Private Secretary (PS) Grade of CSSS on ad-hoc basis- reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s OM of even No. dated 31.3.2011 & 13.4.2011 on the subject mentioned above.

2. All the Cadre Units were requested to promote the eligible PAs within the zone prescribed to the Grade of Private Secretary on adhoc basis to the extent of number of vacancies allocated to their Cadre Units as indicated in Annexure-I of this Department OM of even number dated 31.3.2011 and 13.4.2011. The Cadre Units were also requested to forward the recommendations of the DPC in respect of the remaining eligible PAs in the prescribed zone, who are clear from vigilance angle and cannot be promoted within the Cadre Unit due to lack of vacancies , to this Division while retaining the officials with the least incumbency.

3. Accordingly, based on the information received so far from the Cadre Units, the Competent Authority has decided to nominate the PAs whose names are given in the Annexure-I to this OM and post them to the Cadre Units indicated against their names for their promotion to the Grade of PS of CSSS on adhoc basis after having been found ‘fit’ by the DPC and clear from vigilance angle.

4. The ad-hoc appointment of these officials shall take effect from the date they assume charge of the post of PS in the respective Cadre Units. The ad-hoc appointment shall not confer on the appointees any right to continue in the grade indefinitely or for inclusion in the Select List of PS for regular appointment or to claim seniority in the PS Grade of CSSS.The period of adhoc promotion would be upto 30.9.2011 or till the regular Private Secretaries become available, whichever is earlier.

5. It is also noted that in some Cadres Units like MHA, eligible PAs with maximum incumbency have been promoted and retained within the Cadres Units and the names of eligible PAs with minimum incumbency have been furnished to this Department for their allocation to other Cadres Units which is not in conformity with this Department OM of even number dated 13.4.2011 ibid. It has, therefore, been decided to transfer such adhoc Private Secretaries from the Cadre Units concerned to the Cadre Units indicated against their names given in the Annexure II. Accordingly, MHA is requested to

1) relieve the transferred adhoc Private Secretaries as shown in the Annexure —II of their duties to join the cadre concerned immediately under intimation to this Department.

2) The remaining PA’s with minimum incumbency may be promoted to the grade PS of CSSS on adhoc basis . A copy of their promotion orders may be forwarded to this Department immediately.

6. The Cadre units are also requested that all the PAs who have been nominated to other cadre on their adhoc promotion to the Grade of PS of CSSS may be relieved immediately. A copy of the relieving/promotion Orders issued by Cadres concerned may be forwarded to this Department immediately.

Delhi Government notification on army college admission quashed

The Supreme Court has quashed the Delhi government notification dated August 14, 2008, permitting the Army College of Medical Sciences, Delhi Cantt to provide 100 per cent fees exemption to the wards of only army personnel and directed the college to provide admission to the appellant in MBBS courses since they are in the merit list of the Central Entrance Test. 

The apex court has ruled that executive cannot pass orders or issue notifications which are counter-productive to the constitutional policy of achieving their goals of setting up of egalitarian society based on the concept of social justice in the field of education. 

A bench comprising Justices B Sudershan Reddy and S S Nijjar has declared the Delhi Professional Colleges or Institutions (Prohibition of Capitation Fee, Regulation of Admission, Fixation of Non Exploitative Fee and Other Measures to Ensure Quality and Excellence) Act 2007 do not suffer from any constitutional infirmities. The validity of the Act and its provisions are accordingly upheld. 

Justice Reddy, writing 165 page judgement for the bench copies of which were made available to the media today noted, “The fact that non-minority unaided educational institutions insist on 'social disadvantages blind' admission policies is proof that they are not recognising the true purpose of education as an occupation. Hence, state intervention is a categorical imperative, both morally and within our constitutional logic. 

In light of the above, we hold that the claimed rights of non minority educational institutions to admit students of their choice, would not only be a minor right, but if that were in fact a right, if exercised in full measures, that would be detrimental to the true nature of education as an occupation, damage the environment in which our students are taught the lessons of life, and imparted knowledge, and further also damage their ability to learn to deal with the diversity of India, and gain access to knowledge of its problems, so that they can appreciate how they can apply their formal knowledge in concrete social realities they will confront.'
