Subject: Limited Departmental Qualifying Examination for promotion of Group “C” Multi Tasking Staff (12th pass) as Lower Division Clerks – request for age relaxation for candidates regarding.
I have been directed to refer your office letter No. A.34012(/3241/2017/MF.CGA (E)/177 dated 15th June 2017 on the above mentioned subject and convey the thankfulness of the Association for conducting the Limited Departmental Qualifying Examination for promotion of Group “C” Multi Tasking Staff (12th pass) as Lower Division Clerks after a gap of five years.
However, in view of the suggestions received from our Branches and Units we would like to draw your kind attention to the following few lines for your kind consideration-
1. Since no promotional examination for the Multi Tasking Staff was conducted by the Civil Accounts authorities for the last five years, many Multi Tasking Staffs, despite being 12th pass did not get the opportunity to appear the Limited Departmental Qualifying Examination for promotion as Lower Division Clerks during the said time period and now due to crossing the age of forty five years on 31.03.2017 they have become ineligible to appear the examination for the rest of their service life.
2. Many Multi Tasking Staff who were not 12th pass earlier have acquired the eligibility condition for appearing the aforementioned examination by passing the 12th standard during the last five years. They did so only with the dream that they would become Lower Division Clerks by appearing and passing the Limited Departmental Qualifying Examination for promotion of Group “C” Multi Tasking staff as Lower Division Clerks. But due to not conducting the examination by the Civil Accounts authorities for the list five years, they have crossed forty five years of age on 31-03-2017 and have become ineligible to appear the examination in terms of the provisions of the Recruitment Rules for LDCs.
3. While making amendments in the Recruitment Rules for Lower Division Clerks in 2000 -2003, the Civil Accounts authorities had arbitrarily reduced the quota for promotion of Group D on seniority basis as LDC from 10% to 5% on the plea of availability of this provision in the Model Recruitment Rules prescribed by the DOPT and without considering and appreciating the circumstances prevailing in the Civil Accounts Organization. Under the existing 5% quota for promotion on seniority basis the Multi Tasking Employees of Civil Accounts Organization are not getting promotion even after completion of thirty years of service and hence it is not at all a promotion in reality. In all meetings with the official side of CGA authorities, this Association had placed the request of making amendments in the recruitment Rules of LDCs and earmarking at least 10 % posts in the grade of LDC for promotion of Multi Tasking Staff. But other than assurances no action was taken on this matter by the official side.
Therefore, in view of the above circumstances, we request you to kindly appreciate the pitiable condition of the Multi Tasking Staff of Civil Accounts organization and grant them an one time relaxation of age limit for appearing the Limited Departmental Qualifying Examination for promotion of Group “C” Multi Tasking Staff (12th pass) as Lower Division Clerks 2017 by relaxing the provisions of Recruitment Rules so that all 12th pass Multi Tasking Staff could at least avail one opportunity of appearing the examination in their entire service life .
For your kind and favorable action, this Association shall be highly thankful to you.
