Height of neglect and apathy towards direct PEXs
This is to register our strong protest against the discriminatory and illogical MACP order dated Jan.20, 2010 issued by the AIR D’te.Whereas the eligibility list of Programme Executive cadre for MACP published by the D’te itself a few weeks back, notified 1145 names, only 147 numbers were cleared as per the order referred to. This kind of selective felling and clearing will obviously open up vast opportunities for corruption. The details indicated in the said order is also full of glaring omissions, mistakes, offering undue benefits in some cases and showing the incumbents’ date of joining as TREX ,to appear as if it were the date of joining in regular PEX cadre.
None of the direct PEXs in Kerala figures in the list and their juniors who joined in the feeder category of TREX, on the same period or later have been sanctioned 2-3 up gradations from their present, in spite of getting the benefit of promotion. For Grade pay, direct PEXs with 20-25 years, yet to get a single promotion, have been equated with a TREX of similar period of service. As a result, when a direct PEX joined in 1988 and a TREX of the same year have to go on tour, the TREX can travel by air and is entitled for a hotel rate of Rs.1500/- whereas the senior is not entitled to fly and is eligible only for a hotel rate of Rs.500/-.This,besides injustice come in the way of discharging ones’ official duty.
As this is humiliating and adding insult to injury, the Kerala state unit of the Association of UPSC recruited programme officers of AIR and DD urge your good self to examine the case and issue revised orders including all eligible Programme Executives, immediately, failing which we may be forced to go by the sentiments expressed by all our members in AIR and DD units all over Kerala to stop work .
