Sir,
Sub : SPF – Presidential Order (OMC) – Gazetting of posts after the issue of Presidential Order – Reg.

Ref : OMC (SPF) Preliminary Report submitted to the Government in October, 2001.

* * *

Kindly refer Commission’s Preliminary report, Preliminary Finding Nos. 12A to 12D with particular reference to sub-Para (ii) of Para 2.28.0 of the Preliminary Finding 12A (xerox copy of the finding is enclosed for ready reference). After this Report, the Commission has had occasion to hold meetings with the Officers of the Heads of the Departments to find out about the deviations if any from the Presidential Order. One of the most important issues that has come to the notice of the Commission is that in many departments the posts which were hitherto Non-gazetted before 18-10-1975, the date of the Presidential Order, have been made Gazetted either with the same designation or with some change of designation. As Non-Gazetted posts these were zonal posts with 70% preference for local candidates. On becoming Gazetted, the posts become State-wide posts and also lose the preference for the local candidates. Thus, through this process the Presidential Order is getting diluted in respect of many important posts at the zonal level and local candidates of all the zones are losing the advantage of localisation and preference. Apart from the posts that have come to the notice of this Commission, the Commission understands that there is a demand from many Service Associations for Gazetting some of their posts and that these demands have been referred to Anomalies Commission for examination. The Anomalies Commission will no doubt examine the administrative and other aspects of the demands for making the posts Gazetted. But the one aspect that needs to be safeguarded is that when a post is Gazetted or any change is made in a post, its original local character should be preserved so that the Presidential Order is not diluted and local candidates’ interests are not adversely affected. It is found that some of the posts which were gazetted after 18-10-1975 were got included by the Government in the Third Schedule of the Presidential Order in the category of Specified Gazetted Posts. One finds from the Third Schedule that even up to 1993 some posts were added to this category, but not all the posts that have been gazetted to-date have been added to this category.

Adding to the Third Schedule of Presidential Order under the category of Specified Gazetted Posts only preserves the zonal character of the post, but that brings no solace to the local candidates because the preference for local candidates does not apply to all the posts which are included in this category excepting for a few posts like Tahsildars and Assistant Engineers etc., in this Schedule which were originally given the preference of 60% for local candidates. Thus inclusion to this category also does not restore the local candidate preference of 70% which is lost when a Non-Gazetted post is Gazetted. In many of the cases that have come before the Commission, the posts have not even been brought to the Specified Gazetted Category after being gazetted so that even the zonal character is lost. In two cases: one of the Forest Range Officer in the Forest Department and another of Prohibition and Excise Inspectors, the proposal for inclusion in the Third Schedule as Specified Gazetted Category Posts was even rejected by the Government of India. On the latter case this Commission has written to you already.

This process of gazetting is resulting in consequences which are against the principle enunciated in the Preliminary Findings cited above. You may kindly recall that this particular finding had found favour with the Cabinet Sub-Committee in the presence of the Hon’ble Chief Minister, who had also agreed with it in principle. This was also presented before the Cabinet. It is therefore more or less an agreed principle. The reason for the recommendations in these findings cited above is that if we do not accept the principle of immutability of the local character of the posts as it stood at the time of the Presidential Order, then the Government would find it difficult to deny the demands for expanding the scope of the Presidential Order in so many other dimensions. This is one of the demands in the G.O.Ms.No.610. It will be found in G.O.Ms.No.610, one of the demand which the Government had agreed to look into was Para 5(5) and 5(9) which reads as under:

Para 5(5)
The posts in Institutions/Establishment notified in G.S.R.No.526(E), dated 18-10-1975 shall be filled up by drawing persons on tenure basis from different local cadres on an equitable basis as per orders issued in the G.O. 3rd read above.

Para 5(9)
The possibility of allotting persons from within the same zone/multi-zone against non-local vacancy in a particular cadre will be examined in consultation with the APPSC.

Thereafter, the Services Associations particularly of Telangana have also made demands for extending the Presidential Order to Corporations and other quasi-government organisations which are now outside the Presidential Order. To put finality to the scope of the Presidential Order this Commission had suggested that we should also accept to put a stop to the abridgement of the scope of the Presidential Order and give an assurance to the Employees Association to this effect, while not expanding its scope.

The abridgement of the Presidential Order and the leakage of localized posts through this process of gazetting is against the principle that the Presidential Order’s scope shall not be mutated i.e., neither expanded nor abridged. If it is allowed to be abridged then the counter demands for expansion of the scope cannot be easily ignored.

In pursuance of this principle of immutability of the local character of a post as it stood on the date of the Presidential Order the Government have taken care to ensure that the posts of the Secondary Grade Teachers were retained as district cadre posts and later on the Government took further action to ensure that the original 80% preference for local candidates was also restored even though the scale of the post had been raised by the 1994 Pay Revision Commission above the level of the LDC Scales, which would normally have made it a zonal post with 70% preference. Having accepted the principle of immutability and applied it in the case of the Secondary Grade Teachers it is but fair that the same principle be applied wherever there is any administrative action or change that mutates the original local character of a post. This will give finality and stability to the Presidential Order amidst the dynamics of a progressive and expanding administrative system.

In pursuance of this principle and in view of the dimensions mentioned above, it is suggested as under :-

1. That all the posts that were gazetted after 18-10-1975 should be got included in the Third Schedule to the Presidential Order as Specified Gazetted Categories. This will ensure the zonal character of the posts and retain the zone as “local area” for the posts.
2. To retain the 70% preference for the local candidates which applied to these posts before being Gazetted as they were Non-Gazetted zonal posts.
3. In respect of the posts which are pending consideration for being gazetted, if the Gazetted status is granted on administrative grounds then ‘ipso facto’ a reference to the Government of India may be made immediately on the lines mentioned above under (1) and (2) so that their local character is not mutated.
4. In cases which were referred to the Government of India and have been rejected for inclusion in the Third Schedule i.e., Specified Gazetted Category, the cases may be reopened and action taken as suggested at (1) and (2) above.

A list of the posts that have come to the notice of the Commission which have been Gazetted with or without changes in designation after the Presidential Order is enclosed. This list is not exhaustive but information may be collected from all the departments so that in one single reference Government of India’s orders may be obtained. (Please see Annexure-3 herein).

It is also suggested that the action on this matter may be taken expeditiously particularly in view of the pending demands for gazetting of some posts in some of the departments.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Sri Arvinda Reddy,

Sub:- SPF – Presidential Order (OMC) – Gazetting of posts after the issue of Presidential Order – Reg.

Ref:- My Lr.No.06/86/OMC(A.1)/2002-1, dt: 01.11.2002.

* * *

Kindly refer my letter cited above. As I mentioned to you on phone few days back, I understand that all the proposals for gazetting of posts submitted by various Departments/ Associations have been referred to Anomalies Commission. I had also mentioned this in my letter cited. This is an advanced stage of action in the matter of deciding about the gazetting of certain posts. After the Anomalies Commission recommendations it will be much more difficult to halt the gazetting process. As I pointed out, it is desirable to bring this process to a halt in the interest of local candidates under the Presidential Order who stand to suffer by gazetting of posts, because they will lose the benefit of the local cadre and the preference in direct recruitment to the extent of 70%. I have also proposed that in respect of the posts already gazetted, Government of India’s orders may be obtained so that they will continue to be zonal posts with 70% preference for local candidates, thereby preserving the advantage which was attached to these posts before being gazetted on the principle of immutability of the local cadre & reservation for local candidates of posts that existed on 18.10.1975.

In this connection, it may also be mentioned that some departments that have got their posts gazetted after 18.10.1975 are continuing to treat them as zonal posts with 70% for locals. While this ensures that the pre-gazetting advantage of the post is not lost for the locals, it is in contravention of the Presidential Order because, once the post becomes gazetted, it ceases to have the advantage under the Presidential Order which was attached to it when it was a non-gazetted post. The Head of the Department cannot by his own authority continue these advantages howsoever desirable to do so. So, from that point of view also to validate their action, it is necessary to obtain from the Government of India, orders as indicated above, for all posts gazetted after 18.10.1975. While doing so, an immediate halt may be ordered on any further gazetting of posts including proposals already received or referred to Anomalies Commission.

With regards,

Yours sincerely,

NOTE

It is understood that the Anomalies Commission is examining certain proposals made from the Departments of Secretariat for up-gradation of a few non-gazetted posts in to gazetted posts. The up-gradation of non-gazetted posts into gazetted posts has implications under the Presidential Order, which lays down the principles of localization and organisation of local cadres in the State.

In view of the above position, it is requested that before a decision is taken for upgrading non-gazetted posts into gazetted posts, the views of the General Administration (SPF-A) Department may kindly be taken into consideration.

Sub: OMC (SPF) – Presidential Order – Posts Gazetted after the Presidential Order –Inclusion in Specified Gazetted Category (Third Schedule) – Case of Prohibition and Excise Inspectors – Reg.

Ref: 1. Preliminary findings no.12A, 12B, 12C, 12D in the Preliminary Report of OMC submitted in October, 2001 (extracts enclosed for ready reference).

2. Lr.No.78360/Excise.I/1993-22, Dt.9.10.2002 from the Revenue Department, Government of Andhra Pradesh addressed to OMC (SPF) (copy enclosed).

***

It may be seen from the reference 2nd cited above that the Government in the Revenue Department had declared the post of Prohibition and Excise Inspectors as Gazetted in G.O.Ms.No.335, Revenue (Excise-I) Department, dt.26.4.1997. In pursuance of this the department had approached General Administration (SPF) Department to obtain the orders of the Government of India for inclusion of the post in the Specified Gazetted Category i.e., in The Third Schedule to the Presidential Order, so as to maintain the zonal character of the post. From the reference 2nd cited, it is clear that the Government of India has rejected the proposal.

In this connection, I may invite kind attention to the Preliminary Findings of this Commission cited above in its Preliminary Report. This Report was presented twice before Hon’ble Chief Minster, before the concerned Cabinet Sub-Committee on G.O.Ms.NO.610 and also before the Cabinet. Hon’ble Chief Minister and the Cabinet Sub-Committee had accepted in principle these particular findings though there is no formal order to this effect and even acted on it in the case of Secondary Grade Teachers. In this context therefore when some posts are gazetted after the Presidential Order, they should not lose either their zonal character or their preference percentage (reservation percentage) for local candidates. In all such cases the posts were Non-Gazetted before being Gazetted and were therefore zonal posts with 70 per cent preference for local candidates. By being Gazetted, both these localization advantages of zonal posts and 70% preference get obliterated. Therefore, in view of the acceptance of the principle of immutability of the local character of a post on change of designation up-gradation, gazetting etc., the case may be referred back to the Government of India for accepting the proposal. A fresh proposal may be sent to the Government of India for not only inclusion of the post in the Specified Gazetted Category but also for retaining the 70 per cent preference for local candidates.

I may, however, suggest that before sending the proposal, you may like to discuss the matter with the Principal Secretary to Chief Minister, Sri S.V.Prasad, IAS.. I have already discussed this issue as a general issue for all the posts that have been Gazetted after the Presidential Order. In his view the matter might have to be taken up with the Centre as a general issue first at the Chief Minister’s level. Therefore before sending the proposal you may kindly have a word with Mr.S.V.Prasad and find out whether this single proposal may be sent or whether we may await the general issue being taken up first with the Government of India.

Yours sincerely,

Sd/- (J.M.GIRGLANI)

PRELIMINARY FINDING – 12(A)
Local Character of Posts Immutable
:
2.28.0 Arising from this is another anomaly that the Commission would request the Government to kindly focus its kind urgent attention on. It is that the character of a post as belonging to the district or zonal or multi-zonal cadre as of 18-10-1975, the date of coming into effect of the Presidential Order, cannot be changed by any action of any type, like up-gradation or down-gradation etc. Thus: -

(i) If a post’s pay scale is changed into a higher pay-scale, it will still continue to belong to the same cadre as its original cadre as of 18-10-1975, viz., District, Zonal or multi-zonal, as the case may be, for purposes of “local area”. It should also continue to have the same percentage of reservation for local candidates, 80, 70 or 60 as the case may be as it had as of 18-10-1975.

(ii) Similarly, a post may be made gazetted, from its original non-Gazetted status as of 18-10-1975, but that shall not take it outside the purview of the Presidential Order, nor change its Cadre, or Local Area (Dist. Zone or multi-zone as it was on 18-10-1975), nor can the reservation percentage be changed from the original percentage as of 18-10-1975.

Any modification or mutation of these basic principles, even with the consent of the Government of India, should be deemed to be violation of the Presidential Order. The Commission has been informed of many posts that have been gazetted after 18-10-1975, but which have not been brought under the Presidential Order. Such as have been brought, have been brought under changed reservation percentage to 60%, not the original zonal non-gazetted post percentage of 70%. These anomalies or unintended violations, whatever they may be called, need to be set right. Their “local area” also cannot change.

PRELIMINARY FINDING – 12(B)

(iii) Where the pay-scale of a non-gazetted post is enhanced from that of L.D.C. equivalent scale, its local area and reservation percentage should not change. The case in point is that of Secondary School teachers. While, on enhancement of their pay-scale their local area has been rightly kept as the District, the percentage of reservation has been changed to 70 from the original 80, for no explicable reason. The contradiction and anomaly is evident ‘prima facie’.

(iv) When a field office, like a regional office, is abolished and the staff is shifted to the H.O.D Office, the posts of the field office, such as regional office etc. so abolished, should continue to have the same character under the Presidential Order with the same local area and local candidate reservation percentage. The case in point is that of the abolition of certain regional offices like those of the Cooperative Department and shifting of the posts to Head of the Department office. There could be more circumstances of the same genre where the same principle will apply.

PRELIMINARY FINDING – 12(C)

2.28.1 Why are these principles sacrosanct ? Because, otherwise the entire Presidential Order can be bled out through the haemorrhage of up-gradations, Gazetting and upward revisions of pay scales,abolition of field offices and shifting of their staff to the H.O.D.office or any such acts. Mere consent of the Government of India is not an adequate safeguard, because at this length of time, and particularly when there is no agitation or a vigilance device for the Six Point Formula, the Government of India would go by the State Government’s recommendation, which, in normal times would be based on administrative exigencies or staff demands in general. The Six Point Formula would not enter the thoughts of the proposers and acceptors in the context of other stresses of the moment, be they administrative or staff union pressures.

PRELIMINARY FINDING – 12(D)

2.28.2 Hence, the immutable spirit of the Presidential Order must be made sacrosanct. In law it might fall under the concept of “pith and substance”, or what the Supreme Court has pronounced as the “Basic Framework” principle (in respect of the Constitution) which cannot be changed by amendment. Presidential Order too is a Constitutional Order, not a legislated one and represents a part of that fine balance that holds together the State as a single political entity. Hence, its ‘Basic Framework’ should not be tampered with. All administrative changes must conform to the ‘Basic Framework’ of the Presidential Order, making that framework immutable, unless by a Constitutional amendment of the Presidential Order itself undergoes any change.

EXTRACTS OF HIGH COURT JUDGEMENT IN W. P. Nos. 13458, 13545, 13558, 13572, 15101, 19341 AND 19375 OF 2001

THE HON’BLE THE CHIEF JUSTICE SRI S.B. SINHA
THE HON’BLE SRI JUSTICE S.R. NAYAK
AND
THE HON’BLE SRI JUSTICE GODA RAGHURAM

JUDGEMENT: (per the HON’BLE THE CHIEF JUSTICE)
All these Writ Petitions arising out of common order of the A.P. Administrative Tribunal in O.A.No.2139 of 2001 and batch-dated 28-06-2001 were taken up for hearing together and are being disposed of by this common judgement.
ISSUE
The core issue involved in these writ petitions is whether the transfer of the Inspectors of Police to the unit of Hyderabad City Police from other zones or the transfer of Inspectors of Police from one zone to another, as the case may be, made on administrative grounds and in public interest was on permanent basis and consequently they are entitled to take their respective seniority in the units to which they were transferred and whether they can be repatriated back to their parent zones?

Preview of the relevant provisions of the Presidential Order and consequential orders issued by the Government:
Pursuant to Six Point Formula agreed upon by various political leaders of the State, by Constitution 32nd Amendment Act, the Parliament introduced Article 371-D for the State of Andhra Pradesh with the object to ensure equitable opportunities in the matter of Public Employment for persons coming from various parts of the State. In exercise of the powers conferred by Clauses (1) and (2) of Article 371-D of the Constitution of India, the President issued the order known as Andhra Pradesh Public Employment (Organisation of Local Cadres and Regulation of Direct Recruitment) Order, 1975 (for short ‘the Presidential Order’). Para 3 of the Order provides for organisation of Local Cadres. Para 3 (2) provides that the posts belonging to the category of Junior Assistants and to each of the other categories equivalent to, or lower than that of a Junior Assistant in each department in each district shall be organised into separate cadre. Under sub-Para (3), the posts belonging to each non-gazetted category, other than those referred to in sub-paragraph (2), in each department in each zone shall be organised into a separate cadre. As per Para 3(4), the posts belonging to each specified gazetted category in each department in each zone shall be organised into a separate cadre. As per Third Schedule appended to the Order, Inspectors of Police in Police Department is a Specified Gazetted Category (S.No.51). According to Para 2(1) (m), zone means a zone specified in the Second Schedule, comprising the territories mentioned therein. As per the Second Schedule, Hyderabad comes under Zone VI which consists of Hyderabad, Ranga Reddy, Nizamabad, Mahaboobnagar, Medak and Nalgonda district. Under the Second Schedule, six zones have been created in the State for the purpose of the Presidential Order. Para 6 deals with local areas. As per Para 6(2)(ii), the posts of Inspectors of Police shall be regarded as a zonal post.

Under Sub-paragraph (6) of Para 3 notwithstanding anything contained in sub-paragraphs (2), (3), (4) and (5), the Central Government was empowered to notify the departments in which and the categories of posts for which a separate cadre has to be organised for the City of Hyderabad and on such notification, the posts belonging to each such category in each such department in the City of Hyderabad (other than those concerned with the administration of areas falling outside the said City) shall be organised into a separate cadre and the posts so organised shall be excluded from the other cadres, organised in pursuance of Para 3 or constituted otherwise and comprising of posts belonging to that category in that department. The Central Government in G.S.R. 528(E) dated 18-10-1975 issued notification under Para 3(6) and the Police Department is not part of such notification. Therefore the Police Department in the city is part of Zone VI only and no separate city cadre has been constituted for any of the categories in the Department. Para 4 of the Order deals with allotment of persons.

Now, we may refer to Para 5 and 14 of the Order which are relevant for our purpose. Para 5, which deals with Local Cadres and transfer of persons, reads thus:

5: Local cadres and transfer of persons: (1) Each part of the State for which a local cadre has been organised in respect of any category of posts, shall be a separate unit for purpose of recruitment, appointment, discharge, seniority, promotion and transfer, and such other matters as my be specified by the State Government, in respect of that category of posts.

(2) Nothing in this Order shall prevent the State Government from making provision for-

(a) the transfer of a person from any local cadre to any office or Establishment to which this Order does not apply, or vice-versa;

(b) the transfer of a person from a local cadre comprising posts in any Office or Establishment exzercising territorial jurisdiction over a part of the State to any other local cadre comprising posts in such part, or vice-versa;

(c) the transfer of a person from one local cadre to another local cadre where no qualified or suitable person is available in the latter cadre on where such transfer is otherwise considered necessary in the public interest; and

(d) the transfer of a person from one local cadre to another local cadre on a reciprocal basis, subject to the condition that the person so transferred shall be assigned seniority in the latter cadre with reference to the date of his transfer to that Cadre.

Under Para 5(1) for the purpose of recruitment, appointment, discharge, seniority, promotion and transfer and such other matters as may be specified by the State Government, each part of the State for which a local cadre has been organised is the Unit. The category of Inspectors of Police is a zonal post. Therefore, zone is the unit for the matters mentioned in Para5(1).
Under Para 14 of the Order, certain Establishments and posts are saved or exempted from the application of the Presidential Order. Para 14(f), which is relevant for the purpose of this case, reads thus:

Saving : Nothing in this Order shall apply to –X X X

(f) any post of Police Officer as defined in Clause (b) of Section 3 of the Hyderabad City Police Act, 1348F.

The President by various notifications specified the Special Offices or Establishments, Major Development Projects and State Level Offices or Institutions for the purposes of Para 14. In the Police Department, Police Training College, Ananthapur, Deputy Inspector General of Police (Intelligence), Deputy Inspector General of Police (Railways, Crime and Training), Police Transport Organisation, office of the Director Police Communication, Office of the Forensic Science Laboratory are included in the notification. By operation of Para 14 (f) the posts of Police Officers defined in Hyderabad City Police Act are saved from the provisions of the Presidential Order.

Ascertained cadre strength, allotment of persons under Para 4 and unit of appointment are, therefore, basic requirements for ensuring the object underlined under the Presidential Order.

Clause (10 of Article 371-D provides that the provisions of the Article and of any order made by the President thereunder shall have effect notwithstanding anything in any other provision of the Constitution or any other law for the time being in force. Therefore, the Presidential Order prevails over any other law existing or made in future.

Sub-section (b) of Section 3 of the Hyderabad City Police Act, 1348 F defines “Police Officer” to mean every member of the City Police Force appointed under the said Act and shall also include the Commissioner of City Police, Hyderabad, Deputy or Assistant Commissioner of Police. Section 4 of the Hyderabad City Police Act, which deals with Organisation of Police, reads thus:

Organisation of Police: For the City of Hyderabad there shall be appointed a Police force and its strength and constitution shall be as may be prescribed in accordance with the orders of the government issued in this behalf, from time to time.

The State enacted an Act called the Andhra Pradesh Members of Police Force (Regulation of Transfers) Act, 1985 (Act 9 of 1985) (for short ‘the Act,1985’) to regulate the transfer of persons appointed to Police Force in the State of Andhra Pradesh. ‘Police Force’ has been defined under sub-section (b) of section 3 of the said Act, to mean the Police force constituted under the Hyderabad City Police Act, 1348 F, (the Andhra Pradesh (Andhra Area) District Police Act, 1859) and the Andhra Pradesh (Telangana Area) District Police Act, 1329 F or any other law relating to police force.
Section 3, which deals with regulation of transfer read thus:

Regulation of transfer of members of police force: (1) Notwithstanding anything in any law for time being in force, a member of the Police Force, shall be liable to serve in any part of the State of Andhra Pradesh.

The Government may make rules for the regulation of transfer of members of Police force from one part of the State to another part within the State of Andhra Pradesh by such authority as may be prescribed.

Section 4 empowers the Government to make rules for carrying out the purpose of the said Act.

The State in exercise of the powers conferred under sub-paragraph (2) of Paragraph 5 of the Presidential Order read with sub-section (2) of Section 3 and sub-section (1) of Section 4 of the Act, 1985 issued rules in G.O.Ms.No.288, Home (Police-C) Department dated 06-05-1986 called the rules for the regulation of transfer of members of police force from one part of the State to another part within the State of Andhra Pradesh. The rules shall apply to every member of the Police force from the rank of Police Constable to the rank of Inspector and of equivalent ranks working in various police organisations. In terms of entry No.1 of the table under Rule 2, for all ranks in Police Department, the competent authority to effect transfer is Director General and Inspector General of Police or by an authority authorised by him.

Rule 3 which speaks of seniority provides

Seniority: The transfers being on administrative grounds and in public interest, the transferees will take their respective seniority in the Units to which they are transferred.

Under Rule 4 of the said Rules, the appointing authority for the transferees will be the same as that prescribed in the concerned Special Rules relating to the Unit to which they are transferred. Subsequent to the issuance of the Act, 1985 and the Rules, numbers of persons working in the category of Inspectors of Police were transferred from one zone to another on administrative grounds including the Hyderabad City. Such transfer orders did mention that the seniority of such transferees would be maintained in the range to which they were transferred.

The State Government made several provisions under Para 5(2)(c) of the Presidential Order. In the G.O.Ms.No.374 GAD(SPF.A) Department dated 20-05-1977, it was provided that no provision for inter-local cadre transfers need be made in any special or ad hoc rules on and that such transfers will be permitted only under the circumstances stipulated in Para 5(2)(c).

In G.O.Ms.No.569 GAD dated 22-08-1977 an ad hoc rules was issued to the following effect:

Notwithstanding anything in the A.P. State and Subordinate Service Rules or the Special or Adhoc rules transfer of a person, holding post in a category organised into local cadre, under Para 3 of the A.P. Public Employment (Organisation of Local cadres under regulation of direct Recruitment) Order, 1975 as amended from one local cadre to another shall be made by the Government where no qualified or suitable person is available in the latter cadre or where such transfer is otherwise considered necessary in the public interest.

To give effect to Para 5(2)(d) which was inserted by G.O.Ms.No.34 GAD dated
24-01-1981, the Government in G.O.Ms.No.539 GAD dated 01-10-1981 issued the amendment to the above ad hoc rule as under:

Notwithstanding anything in the A.P. State and Subordinate Service Rules, or the Special or the Ad hoc rules transfer of a person, holding post in a category organised into local cadres, under Paragraph 3 of the A.P. Public Employment (Organisation of Local cadres and Regulation of Direct Recruitment) Order, 1975 as amended from one local cadre to another may be made by the Government.

(a) Against a vacancy where no qualified or suitable person is available in the latter cadre or where such transfer is otherwise considered necessary in the public interest; and

(b) on reciprocal basis, subject to the condition that transfers should be assigned seniority with reference to the date of transfer in the cadre to which he is transferred.

BACKGROUND OF LITIGATION:

It appears that consequent to transfer of Inspectors of Police to Hyderabad City Police from other zones, litigation had ensued before the Andhra Pradesh Administrative Tribunal challenging the validity of the Act, 1985. The Police Officers working in the Hyderabad City Police questioned the orders of transfer of Police Officers from other zonal cadres to the posts of in the Hyderabad City Police. A full Bench of the Tribunal in O.A.Nos.22622 to 635 of 1990 and batch of cases considered the validity of the Act and the Rules.

The Tribunal on a consideration of the various provisions of the Presidential Order and the ad hoc rules issued by the Government was of the view that the transfers of non-gazetted officers or the first level gazetted officers occupying the posts saved by Para 14 may be made in public interest and in the interests of the administration but at the same time, such transfers cannot be made as a punishment by posting the persons to distant places or to effect their future careers like promotion etc. Referring to entry 1 of Rule 2 of the Rules, the Tribunal observed :

It does not make any distinction between the posts organised in zonal cadres or covered by the Presidential Order or those saved by the Presidential Order by Para 14. Such a provision is not contemplated by Para 5(2) and is inconsistent with the same.

The Tribunal also observed:

the table under Rule 2 does not indicate separately the post of a Police Officer as defined in the Hyderabad City Police Act which is saved by the Presidential Order. A transfer of such an officer to another post covered by the Presidential Order will not be permissible under the Act or the Rule. Rule 2 or any other rule does not refer to various clauses of

Para 5(2), which has to be kept in view for making a transfer with reference to each of the clauses.

The Tribunal further observed:

Rule 3 regarding seniority states that a transfer could be made in public interest and therefore Rule 2 extracted above merely states that the transfers being on administrative grounds and in public interest the transferees will take their respective seniority in the units to which they are transferred. The rules do not restrict the power of transfer only in public interest or on administrative grounds. No guidelines are laid down for the subordinate officers to make such transfer or dealt with which are the areas, which will answer the requirements of public interest or administrative grounds. In respect of the posts covered by the Presidential Order, the public interest is a ground only under Para 5(2)(c). The ad hoc rule framed under 309 reserves the power in the Government alone. By the impugned rules, the power is not only delegated to the Head of the Department and various officers but it can be further delegated by the Head of the Department to anyone else. The words ‘public interest’ and ‘administrative grounds’ in Rule 3, therefore, do not lay down any guidelines or put a fetter on the officers to transfer only in public interest or administrative grounds.

It was further held that provision made under Para 5(2) cannot be inconsistent with Clauses (a) to (d) of Para 5(2). However, the Tribunal did not examine the scope of various clauses under Para 5(2) or how the posts under 14(f) are to be dealt with on the ground that the rules do not satisfy the requirement of a provision to be made under Para 5(2). The Tribunal also held:

We would, therefore, like to point out to the instructions issued in G.O.P.No.728, GAD dated 01-11-1975 regarding determination of cadre strength of each local cadre by taking into account the proportionate number of posts in Office or establishments saved from the Presidential Order. This was with an idea that the posts in such office and establishments would generally be filled upon tenure basis by drawing persons from various zonal cadres on equitable basis to achieve the object of Article 371-D. Probably this may also have to be kept in view while making a provision under 5(2).

Finally, the Tribunal summed up the conclusions as under:

a) The Act and Rules do not violate Presidential Order insofar as a transfer is from a post saved under Para 14 of the Presidential Order to another post saved under Para 14 of a person not included in any local cadre under the Presidential Order.
b) The impugned Act and the Rules are not effective for making transfer in respect of local cadres i.e., either inter-cadre or from or to posts in the cadre to and from posts saved under Para 14 of the Presidential Order and for which provision is to be made by the Government in various clauses of 5(2) or of the persons included in any local cadre under Presidential Order.
c) It is open for the Government to make any further or other provision as contemplated by 5(2).

It is made clear that we have examined the question of transfer from the city police to another local cadre on a permanent basis. We have not examined transfers of police officers bona fide in public interest in exigencies of services for short periods without effecting their continuance and position in their local cadre or effecting their seniority in the local cadre to which they are so transferred or levelled by the Head of Department viz., DGP of Police. (emphasis supplied)

Therefore, according to the Tribunal no transfer from the inter-cadre posts to the posts saved under Para 14 or vice versa is permissible unless a provision is made by the Government under Para 5(2) and the rules do not satisfy the requirement of a provision to that effect.

Pursuant to the Judgement of the Tribunal, the Government issued G.O.Ms.No.349 Home (Police.C) Department dated 15-12-1997 the relevant portion of which reads thus:

The Government of India and the Director General and Inspector General of Police Andhra Pradesh Hyderabad were consulted in the matter.

The Director General and Inspector General of Police, Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad has suggested that the table in G.O.Ms.No.288, Home Department, dated 06-05-1986has to be suitably changed and Para 14 of the Presidential Order amended suitably in order to effect the transfers of police officers and men in public interest.

The Government after careful examination of the entire matter direct that the transfers of Police personnel from one local cadre to another local cadre be permitted only for a limited period without conferring any right to seniority in the local cadre to which, the individual is transferred even though the said transfer is on administrative grounds. Such transfer orders have to be issued by the Government duly indicating the reasons in each case in order to justify that the transfer is in public interest.

Pursuant to the said G.O. the Director General and Inspector General of Police sent proposals to the Government to repatriate all the officers who are working in other zones and the Government issued orders in G.O.Rt.No.2424 dated 25-11-1998 repatriating nine officers to their respective parent zones. Consequential repatriation orders were also issued by the authorities concerned.

The validity of G.O.Ms.No.349 and G.O.Rt.No.2424 was the subject-matter of challenge before the Tribunal.

FACTS:

We may now briefly refer to the factual aspects involved in the respective Writ Petitions with reference to the various orders issued by the authorities.

Sarvasri Sardar Harihar Singh, Y.Vijay Kumar (petitioners in W.P.No.13572 of 2001) Shaik Sharifuddin, and M.G.F. Santakumar (petitioner in W.P.No.13558 of 2001) filed O.A.No.7579 of 1998 questioning the aforesaid G.O.Ms.No.349 and consequential orders dated 15-12-2000 issued pursuant thereto. The petitioner No.1 in W.P.No.13572 of 2001 was appointed as Sub-Inspector of Police in 1974 in Zone VI and he was promoted as Inspector of Police in 1998. By the proceedings of the Special Inspector General of Police (Admn.) dated 24-05-1988 he was transferred from Hyderabad Range to Hyderabad City Police on administrative grounds and in public interest. The order mentions that his seniority will be maintained in Hyderabad City Zone. The 2nd petitioner was appointed as Sub-Inspector in 1976 in Zone IV and was promoted as Inspector of Police in 1992. By the orders of the Spl. Inspector General of Police dated 16-06-1994 he was transferred to Hyderabad City Police on temporary basis on administrative grounds and in public interest subject to the result of O.A.No.22622 of 1990 and batch. The order of the 2nd respondent mention that his seniority will be maintained in Kurnool Zone. By G.O.Rt.No.2424 Home (Police.C) Department dated 25-11-1998 both the petitioners were repatriated back to their parent ranges. However, they were continuing by virtue of the orders passed by this Court in W.P. No.32683 of 1998 directing to maintain status quo pending disposal of O.A.No.7579 of 1998. The O.A. was, however, disposed of as covered by the Full bench Judgement of the Tribunal dated 20-10-1994. The petitioners challenged the same in W.P.No.5613 of 1999 wherein this Court directed to maintain status quo on 19-03-1999. The Writ Petition was finally disposed of on 30-01-2001 remanding the matter to the Tribunal for fresh disposal and directed to maintain status quo till the disposal of the O.A.

The petitioner in W.P.No.13558 of 2001 was appointed as Sub-Inspector of Police in Zone IV in 1976 and promoted as Inspector of Police in 1982. By order dated
29-03-1995 of the Inspector General of Police (Admn.) he was transferred to Hyderabad City on administrative grounds and in public interest and the order mention that his seniority will be reckoned in Hyderabad city. By the order dated 25-11-1998 he was repatriated back to his parent zone.

The petitioner in W.P.No.15101 of 2001 arising out of O.A.No.8534 of 1998 was appointed as Sub-Inspector of Police on 21-04-1974 in Zone IV and later promoted as Inspector of Police in 1982. He was transferred from Zone-IV to Zone II by proceedings dated 02-04-1997. By the impugned orders he was repatriated back to his parent range.

The petitioner (K.Ashok Reddy) in W.P.No.13545 arising out O.A.No.8430 of 1998 was appointed as Sub-Inspector of police in Zone V in 1978 and promoted as Inspector of Police on out of seniority in February, 1987 and on regular basis in June, 1991. By the proceedings dated 12-02-1996 he was transferred to Hyderabad Range and at the relevant time he was working as Inspector of Police, Saroornagar. He was one of the persons repatriated through G.O.Rt.No.2424. He obtained orders of status quo in O.A.No.8438 of 1998. When the Deputy Inspector General of Police issued the consequential proceedings dated 04-01-2001 he filed O.A.No.58 of 2001 and the Tribunal by orders dated 09-01-2001 granted interim suspension of the said orders. The said O.A. was also tagged on O.A.No.8430 of 2001.

The petitioner in W.P.No.13458 of 2001 (G. Anantha Reddy) arising out of O.A. No.2139 of 2001 was appointed as Sub-Inspector of Police in Zone VI on 01-02-1974 and promoted as Inspector of Police on 18-07-1988. He is not aggrieved by the orders of the Government in G.O.Ms.No.349 or G.O.Rt.No.2424. His grievance is that though by orders dated 04-01-2001 he was posted as Inspector of Police, Saroornagar
he was not permitted to join duty. It appears that there was a dispute between the petitioner in W.P.No.13545 of 2001 and this petitioner as to the holding of the post of Inspector of Police, Saroornagar P.S. Pursuant to an order passed in C.A.No.1881 of 2001 the petitioner in W.P.No.13545 of 2001 was issued posting orders on 03-04-2001 at Saroornagar and the petitioner herein was kept under reserve for want of vacancy from 01-08-2001. He challenged the same in O.A.No.2139 of 2001. The O.A. was tagged on to O.A.No.8430 of 1998 and O.A.No.58 of 2001. These three OAs were dismissed. The Tribunal observed that both the petitioners continued vexatious litigation with the predominant motive of occupying the post of Inspector Police, Saroornagar P.S. and therefore it was not desirable to allow either of them as Inspector of Police, Saroornagar PS in public interest. Being aggrieved, he filed the present Writ Petition. According to him, he was still kept on waiting for posting and he is not being paid salary from 03-04-2001.
Aggrieved by the observations of the Tribunal in O.A.No.2139 of 2001 as against the petitioner Sri Ashok Reddy, he filed W.P.No.19341 of 2001. He also filed W.P.No.19375 of 2001 challenging the proceedings dated 04-01-2001 of the Deputy Inspector General of Police, Hyderabad Range referred to above repatriating him back to his parent zone.

The Tribunal by the order under challenge held that the transfer of the petitioners to Hyderabad city is on temporary basis and they cannot claim permanent absorption in the unit to which they were transferred. Rejecting the contention of the petitioners that the Judgement of the Full Bench of the Tribunal is not binding on them, the Tribunal held that the Judgement of the Full Bench in O.A.Nos.22622 of 1990 to 22635 of 1990 is a judgement in rem and not judgement in personam. It was also held that the seniority of the petitioners was being maintained in their respective police ranges only and not in Hyderabad City Police. It was further held that Hyderabad City Police is not part and parcel of Zone VI and is a free zone and separate independent recruitment is being made in respect of posts of Hyderabad City Police. As regards the issue of not repatriating similarly placed persons, it was found that such persons will be considered soon after disposal of pending oral enquiries/ACB cases registered against them. The Tribunal also held that the petitioners were appointed and promoted in their parent zones and therefore they cannot have a right to be treated as regular candidates of Hyderabad City Police. The Tribunal also held that the Tribunal in the Full Bench Judgement while upholding the Rules read down the same instead of striking down them and the G.O.Ms.No.349 has been issued only by way of clarification to G.O.Ms.No.288. Holding so, the Tribunal dismissed all the applications.
Being aggrieved, the present Writ petitions were filed.

The petitioner in W.P.No.13458 of 2001 is not concerned with the transfer from one zone to another. Expect the petitioner in W.P.No.15372 of 2001, the other petitioners were transferred to Hyderabad City Police from other zones. The Petitioner in W.P.No.15372 of 2001 was transferred from Zone IV to II and was repatriated back to Zone IV pursuant to G.O.Ms.No.349.

SUBMISSIONS:

Mr. Nuty Rammohan Rao, learned counsel appearing for one of the petitioners would submit that the learned Tribunal erred in not considering the legality and validity of the policy decision of the State contained in G.O.Ms.No.349 and G.O.Rt.No.2424. He would further submit that in terms of Para 3(6) of the Presidential Order no separate cadre has been organised for the City of Hyderabad and, therefore, the State was competent to make provision for effecting transfer from one local cadre to another local cadre in terms of Para 5(2)(c) of the Presidential Order. The Tribunal in the Full Bench judgement upheld the validity of the Rules issued in G.O.Ms.No.288 and once an employee is transferred from one local cadre to another in public interest and on administrative grounds, they cannot be repatriated back. Rule 3 of the Rules is in conformity with the provisions contained in Para 5(1) of the Presidential Order.

Sri P.V. Krishnaiah, the learned counsel appearing for the petitioners would submit that the petitioners were transferred to Hyderabad City Police on permanent basis and, therefore, they cannot be repatriated back to their parent zones. The Full Bench judgement of the Tribunal does not come in the way of the petitioners being transferred to Hyderabad City Police and G.O.Ms.No.349 is contrary to the power vested on the State to effect transfers under Para 5(2) of the Presidential Order and the rules issued in G.O.Ms.No.288 are in accordance with Para 5(2). Insofar as Sub-Inspectors and Inspectors of Police are concerned, there is no separate zone for Hyderabad City and it is included in Zone VI only and as such inter-cadre transfers is permissible. It was further submitted that all the posts in the Police Department are covered by the A.P. Police Subordinate Service Rules issued in exercise of the power under Article 309 of the Constitution and no separate recruitment is being made under the provisions of the Hyderabad City Police Act. The Full Bench was not correct in holding that Hyderabad City is a separate Unit. Nobody was appointed under the Hyderabad City Police Act. Learned counsel would further submit that G.O.Ms.No.349 would operate only prospectively but not retrospectively.

The learned Additional Advocate-General would contend that Government under Para 5(2) is empowered to make transfers in certain specified circumstances mentioned in Clauses (a) to (d). In the Full Bench Judgement, the Tribunal read down the Rules issued in G.O.Ms.No.288 to the extent the posts of Police Officers under Para 14(f) are exempted. He would further urge that G.O.Ms.No.349 has been issued only by way of clarification to G.O.Ms.No.288 dated 06-05-1986.

FINDINGS:
Section 3 of the Act 1985 begins with a non-obstante provision and renders liable a member of the Police Force to serve in any part of the State of Andhra Pradesh. Sec.2(b) of this Act defines a Police Force to mean the Police Force constituted under the Hyderabad City Police Act 1348 Fasli; the Andhra Pradesh (Andhra Area) District Police Act 1859 and Andhra Pradesh (Telangana Area) District Police Act 1329 Fasli or any other law relating to the Police Force.

On a linguistic construction of the expressed terms of the Act 1985, there are no apparent limits to the transferability of a member of the Police Force within the territory of the State of Andhra Pradesh.

Having regard to the provisions of Presidential Order 1975 made under Art. 371D of the Constitution, local cadres have been constituted and Para 5 (1) of the Presidential Order which mandates that each part of the State, for which a local cadre has been organised in respect of any category of posts, shall be a separate unit for the purpose, inter alia, of transfer. Having regard to the provisions of Art. 371D(10) the Presidential Order prevails over any provision of the Constitution or any other law for the time being in force. In this constitutional position, while the provisions of the Act 1985 are plenary within that sphere would nevertheless require to be construed in harmony with the provisions of the Presidential Order. The liability of a member of the police force to be transferred to any part of the State and the concomitant power of the State Government to so effect a transfer is thus subject to the limitations enjoined in the Presidential Order.
The doctrine of reading down of a statute is a well recognised principle of statutory construction. This doctrine is used either for saving a statute from being struck down on account of unconstitutionality, resulting either from the incompetence of a Legislature to enact a statute or from its violation of any of the provisions of the Constitution. Thus wherever the provisions of the statute are vague, ambiguous or couched in broad phraseology and two interpretations are possible on its terms – one which renders the provisions constitutional and the other unconstitutional, a limiting construction can be employed to structure the provisions of the statute, so as to bring them in conformity with the constitution and thus rendering them intra vires – vide

In Re the Hindu Women’s Rights to Property Act, 1937 and the Hindu Women’s Rights to Property (Amendment) Act, 1938 (AIR 1941 FC 72); Nalinakhya Bysack vs Shyam Sunder Hakdar (AIR 1953 SC 148); R M D Chamarbaugwalla vs Union of India (AIR 1957 SC 628); Kedar Nath Singh vs State of Bihar (AIR 1962 SC 955); R.L. Arora vs State of Uttar Pradesh (AIR 1964 SC 1230); Jagadish Pandey vs the Chancellor, University of Bihar, (AIR 1968 SC353); Umed vs Raj Singh (AIR 1975 SC 43); Sunil Batra vs Delhi Administration (AIR 1978 SC1675) ; Excel Works vs Union of India (AIR 1979 SC 25) and Minerva Mills Ltd., vs Union of India (AIR 1980 SC 1789).

In VIJAYALAKSHAMMA v B.T. SHANKAR1 the Apex Court has pointed out that the Courts may not add or alter provisions of statute by reading into them what was never intended by the legislature or may have been deliberately avoided by it. (Also See GM SC RAILWAY, SEC’BAD v SRI RAMA ENGINEERING CONSTRUCTIONS, 2001 (6) ALD 191).

The alleged uncanalised grant of power to transfer a member of the Police Force to any part of the State of Andhra Pradesh, under the Act, 1985, must thus on principle and authority, be read as empowering transfer only in conformity with the provisions of the Presidential Order in particular Para 5 thereof.

An analysis of the provisions of the Presidential Order 1975, discloses that an elaborate framework for organisation of local cadres for parts of the State has been made both for the purposes of fitment of the existing employees as well as those to be recruited in future, as also for transfer, seniority and promotional avenues, which are either localised or State-wide, as the case may be. This is apparent from Paras 3 and 6 of the Presidential Order. Para 4 of the Presidential Order lays down the principles that should govern the allotment of persons to local cadres which are specified in Para 4(2) (a) to (e). Para 4(4) and 4(5) enable consideration of grievances with regard to allotment and rectification of the same, wherever found necessary and warranted. Para 4(6) enacts finality to any order of the State Government made on any representation setting out grievances with regard to allotment, subject, however, to adjudication of such dispute by the Administrative Tribunal constituted for the State of Andhra Pradesh under Art. 371D (3) of the Constitution.

Para 14 of the Presidential Order saves posts in specified departments, establishments or institutions from the provisions of the Presidential Order, which includes any post of Police Officer as defined in Cl.(b) of Sec. 3 of the Hyderabad City Police Act 1348 Fasli. The posts in institutions, departments or establishments set out in Para 14 of the Presidential Order are thus outside the ambit of the provisions of the Presidential Order. Para 11 enacts an over riding effect to the provisions of the Presidential Order over any statute, ordinance, rule, regulation or other order made before or after the commencement of the Presidential Order.

Para 5 specifies that each part of the State for which a local cadre has been organised in respect of any category of posts shall be a separate unit for the purpose of recruitment, appointment, discharge, seniority, promotion and transfer and such other matters as may be specified by the State Government, in respect of that category of posts.

On an analysis of the provisions of the Presidential Order and in particular those adumbrated above, it is clear that having regard to the historical compulsions which have led to the enactment of Art.371D, the Presidential Order provides the framework for intra State compartmentalisation of certain posts under the rubric of local cadres, constituted for parts of the State and protects the service conditions of members allotted or recruited to such local cadres in respect of matters specified in Para 5(1). The local cadres are thus the result of the historical compulsions engendered by economic and other differentia operating between parts of the State of Andhra Pradesh and of the felt grievances of residents of such parts of the State.

In construing the power granted to the State Government under Para 5(2) for making provisions for transfers of persons, we must not loose sight of the historical compulsions which have led to the enactment of the Presidential Order, which is butteressed by the over riding effect given to the provisions of the Presidential Order not only against the exercise of the majoritarian, political and executive choices of the State, but is also made operative against any other provisions of the Constitution of India (Art.371D(10) read with Para 11 of the Presidential Order).

It is not in dispute that in terms of Section 3 of the Act, 1985, the State Government may transfer a member of the police force from one place to another within the State. It is also not in dispute that the rules issued in G.O.Ms.No.288 dated 06-05-1986 provide for transfer of members of the police force.

What was questioned before the Tribunal is the validity or otherwise of Rule 3 of the said rules. The vires of Rule 3 aforementioned has been questioned inter alia on the ground that no guideline has been provided therein and thereby an unbridled and uncanalised power has been conferred.

The said rules apply to every member of police force from the rank of police constables to the rank of Inspector and were of equivalent ranks working in District Armed Forces (DAR) etc. The applicability of the rule therefore is limited to the officers specified therein. By reason of Rule 2 no power has been delegated but mere competency of the concerned officers had been provided. Rule 3 protects seniority. Such seniority is required to be protected having regard to the provisions contained in the Presidential Order. The salutary principle underlying the framing of Rule 3 is the administrative ground and public interest.

What is an administrative ground and what would be an action in public interest although may vary from case to case, but the power of judicial review against an order of transfer is not excluded. The Court exercising its power of judicial review can always interfere in the event a transfer has not been made on administrative ground or in public interest.

Non-availability of competent officer and public interest are themselves provide for adequate guidelines. Furthermore, in a case where an action is contrary to the principle enunciated in the Presidential Order, a judicial review would lie and thus it cannot be said that Rule 3 is ultra vires Article 14 or 246 of the Constitution of India.

However, there cannot be any dispute that Clause (10) of Article 371-D of the Constitution of India will have primacy.

We may notice that no separate organisation has come into being in terms of Para 3(1) of the Presidential Order. Para 3(3) of the said order refers to the zonal posts. Para 3(5) apply to both gazetted and non-gazetted posts. Although a power has been conferred in Para 3(6) to create a separate cadre of posts which has to be organised for the city of Hyderabad, no such cadre has come into being. Further, in terms of notification issued by the Central Government in G.S.R.No.528 (E) dated 18-10-1975, the Police Department is not part of the said notification for the purposes of organisation of a separate cadre for the city of Hyderabad. Para 3(5) will have application only in relation to the said local cadres, which have been organised in respect of any category of posts. Such local cadre would be a separate unit inter alia for the purposes of recruitment, appointment, discharge, seniority, promotion and transfer.

Para 5(2) provides the repository of the power. Para 5(2) (a) has no application in the instant case.

The State Government has made provisions for transfer of a person from a local cadre to another local cadre where no qualified or suitable persons is available in the latter cadre or where such transfer is otherwise considered necessary in the public interest. The power of the State Government is therefore limited. The said power can be exercised only in the event the conditions precedent therefore are satisfied.

In terms of the II Schedule there are only six zones. The city of Hyderabad comes within the purview of Zone-VI. The city of Hyderabad, although loosely treated as a separate zone, but no such separate zone has been created. The city of Hyderabad therefore comes within the purview of Zone VI only.

A transfer from one cadre to another cadre has to be made keeping in view the various contingencies viz., a) having regard to the public interest and permanent in nature; b) it is transient in nature; c) temporary and d) shifting the cadre.
Seniority of the person concerned was therefore required to be protected, having regard to the fact that even if a transfer from one cadre to another is temporary, a situation may arise where the question of his promotion may come up. Unless appropriate safeguard is made, as regards seniority of a person transferred, he may not be considered for promotion at all.

Having regard to Para 5(2) (c) of the Order, there cannot be any doubt whatsoever that the State has the requisite power to make transfers in public interest. As there does not exist any Hyderabad zone, Para 5(2) (a) would not come into play at all.

Transfer under general law is an incidence of service, but having regard to the peculiar situation obtaining in the State of Andhra Pradesh and in particular having regard to the Presidential Order, there cannot be any doubt whatsoever that a person cannot be transferred from one cadre to another cadre in a normal situation. An order of transfer would be permissible only when the condition precedent therefor exists.

In each case, the State is required to apply its mind and come to a conclusion as to whether an order of transfer should be passed, having regard to non-availability of a suitable person or in public interest. Non-availability of a suitable person may be temporary nature. As and when a suitable person is found out, a person belonging to the local cadre may replace a transferee.

If for the aforementioned purpose, a policy decision has been taken by the State that no permanent transfer shall be made, the same cannot be found fault with.

Insofar as public interest is concerned, transfer from one cadre to another cadre is permissible. Such public interest may either be temporary or permanent in nature.

In a case where an order of transfer is required by way of temporary measure, the officer concerned should be transferred back to his parent zone. However, there may be some exceptional circumstances where transfer of a person on permanent basis from one cadre to another cadre may have to be affected. Situations may vary from circumstances to circumstances. As for example, when grave law and order problem arises in one part of the State, transfer from one cadre to another cadre with a view to meet the exigency of the situation is not prohibited. Further more, when the services of a particular officer may become necessary, having regard to his expertise or experience in dealing with the similar matters, public interest may demand of his services be requisitioned. But, inter cadre transfer should be made in exceptional situations. It is now a common knowledge that entire cadre transfer is sought for and is made for extraneous considerations having regard to the chances of promotion better amenities and other factors. In a case of such nature, the orders of transfer cannot be passed and having regard to the scheme of the Presidential Order vis-à-vis the said Act and the

Rules, such orders of the transfer can be interfered with by the Tribunal or by this Court.

In S.PRAKASHA RAO v CCT1 the apex Court clearly held that the State Government has no blanket power to create local cadres, as the same would tend to defeat the object of Article 371-D and the Presidential Order. As regards organisation of a separate cadre is concerned, having regard to the language used in Para 3(7), it was held that the same may be given effect to.
(1 AIR 1990 (2) SCC 259)

But, as noticed hereinbefore, no separate cadre has been created in respect of the police force so far as Hyderabad is concerned and thus the city of Hyderabad is comprised in Zone VI. As further noticed hereinbefore, no person has been appointed strictly in terms of the Hyderabad City Police Act and thus even the provisions contained in Para 14 (f) will have no application.

In GOVT. OF A.P. v A.SURYANARAYANA RAO2 the apex Court held

Para 5 of the Presidential Order is also to the same effect. When once each zone is treated as a separate unit for the purpose of promotion also in respect of zonal posts than by virtue of Article 371-D and the Presidential Order. As observed above, the promotion from the post of Junior Engineer to the post of Assistant Engineer which are both zonal posts, should be on the basis of the zonal seniority list inasmuch as the post of Junior Engineer and the next promotion post namely Assistant Engineer are included in the local cadre and the zonal list as we find in the Third Schedule. With regards the higher posts which are not included in the local cadre and which are Statewide posts, it becomes obvious that the Statewide seniority list of the Assistant Engineers of all zones should beprepared and that should be the basis of promotion to the post of Executive Engineer which is not a zonal post.

The apex Court reiterated the dicta in S.PRAKASH RAO (1 Supra) and held that the zonal seniority list prepared pursuant to the initial organisation and creation of local cadres has to be maintained.

A similar question came up for consideration recently in GOVERNMENT OF ANDHRA PRADESH V.MOHD.GHOUSE MOHINUDDIN & ORS3 and therein the earlier decisions of the apex Court in S.PRAKASH RAO (1 supra) and SURYANARAYANA RAO (2 Supra) were upheld. In the aforementioned decision, the apex Court also held:

5. A combined reading of Paragraph 3 (i) and 3(7), therefore makes it clear that within 18 months from the commencement of the Presidential Order, the State Government could organise classes of posts in the Civil Services of the State into different local cadres for the purpose of achieving the main objective of the Presidential Order, and such organised local cadre, would be the area of operation for considering the question of recruitment, promotion etc. this being the position, the Tribunal committed error by holding that Paragraph 3(3) of the Presidential Order would have an over-riding effect.

The apex Court upon analysing the provisions of Article 371-D vis-à-vis the Presidential Order held that Para 3 (7) would have an over riding effect upon Para 3 (3).

Understood in the context of its evolutional history, the power conferred on the State Government under Para 5 (2) must necessarily be interpreted as a power to make a provision for transfers for exceptional reasons, which will have to be such as to warrant a departure from the framework of local cadres carefully structured under the provisions of the Presidential Order. If the expression “nothing in this order shall prevent the State Government” from making provisions for transfers (Para 5(2)) is to be given its ordinary, natural and grammatical construction, the entire scheme of the Presidential Order including the immunity provided to such order from the legislative and executive power of the State would be rendered nugatory and illusory. After a local cadre is organised and allotments/direct recruitment made to such local cadres, the State would be free to make provisions for transfers, totally disrupting the harmony of local cadres so achieved, by the devise of free transferability and that cellular discipline of local cadres could be totally subverted. Such irrationality cannot be imputed to the Presidential Order.

On the above analysis we hold that the power of the State Government to make a provision for transfer in any of the circumstances and exigencies set out in sub-Paras (a) to (c) of Para 5(2) is a power circumscribed by the limitation that such transfers are to be only in exceptional circumstances, in exigencies of over riding public interest or where no qualified or suitable person is available in a particular local cadre and predominantly only for a transient period for which such contingency exists, an exception being the circumstance enumerated in Para 5(2)(d) namely reciprocal basis.

To maintain the sanctity of the local cadre discipline in particular is set out in the provisions of Para 5(1), we also hold that while effecting any transfers by virtue of a provisions made by the State Government under Para 5(2). Clear and specific reasons must be recorded justifying such transfer within the contours of Para 5(2)(a) to (d). Such recording of reasons is essential to enable conformity of the State’s power to transfer with the provisions of the Presidential Order. Such recording of reasons would facilitate and ensure the exercise of power of transfer within the confined and limited contours available to the State.

Having regard to the provisions of Para 14 of the Presidential Order, no limitations are prescribed on the power of the State Government to provide for transfer of the incumbent of a post in any department, institution or establishment enumerated in
Para 14 to another such department, institution or establishment.

In so far as transfers of persons falling within the ambit of Para 5(2)(a) to (c) is concerned, provisions of the Act 1985 and the rules thereunder set out in
G.O. Ms.No. 288 dt 6.5.1986, must be construed as enabling such transfers only when no qualified or suitable person is available in a particular local cadre or where such transfer is otherwise considered necessary in the public interest and for no other reason. Normally such transfers must necessarily be of limited duration or tenure to meet the specified exigency namely either during the period no qualified or suitable person is available or the public interest that necessitated such transfer, continues. Immediately on cessation of such circumstances – as and when a qualified or suitable person is available or when the public interest concerned ceases to operate, the persons so transferred in the above exigencies must need be repatriated to the local cadre to which he belongs either by allotment or direct recruitment to it. There may be very rare circumstances, and very rare they must necessarily be, where a persons is required to be transferred to another local cadre on a longer term basis. Clear reasons for such long term transfer must not only exist but must be clearly recorded. In any case wherever such transfer, be it for a short term or longer term, the transfers made in the circumstances set out in Para 5(2)(a) to (c) being on administrative exigencies, must enable the person so transferred to carry the benefit of his seniority to the transferred local cadre. To this extent Rule 3 of the Rules made under the Act 1985 must be held to be valid.

In the case of a transfer on reciprocal basis, Para 5(2)(d) itself mandates that the person transferred shall be assigned seniority in the later cadre with effect from the date of his transfer to such cadre. Rule 3 of the Rules made under the Act 1985 would have no application in such a case and the provisions of Para 5(2)(d) would operate. We are of the opinion that even in respect of a transfer under Para 5(2)(d) the principles/guidelines for allotment in Para 4(2) should be borne in mind and reciprocal transfers should not be freely approved which would gravely disrupt the need for composition of balance cadre having regard to age and seniority or the administrative needs of the posts in the local cadre.

Nothing has been placed before this court to demonstrate that any appointments of police officers have been made only under the provisions of either the Hyderabad City Police Act 1348 Fasli but they have been made also under the Andhra Pradesh (Andhra Area) District Police Act 1859 or the Andhra Pradesh (Telengana Area) District Police Act 1349 Fasli. All appointments have been made under the relevant Rules made under proviso to Art. 309 of the Constitution including the Andhra Pradesh Police Service Rules; Andhra Pradesh Police Subordinate Service Rules; Andhra Pradesh police (Armed Reserve) Service Rules; Andhra Pradesh (Communications) Subordinate Service Rules; Andhra Pradesh Police (Computer Centre) Service Rules and the Andhra Pradesh Police (Computer Centre) Subordinate Service Rules, etc.

Sec.2(b) of Hyderabad City Police Act 1348 Fasli defines a Police Officer to include every member of the City Police Force appointed under this Act as also the Commissioner of City Police, Hyderabad, the Deputy or Assistant Commissioner of Police and subject to provisions of sub-sec.(2) of Sec. 9 and sub-Sec.(2) of Sec.10 every person who has been appointed as an Additional or Special Police Officer. Sec.7 of this Act vests in the Commissioner of City Police the power to appoint and promote Inspector of Police, Sub Inspector of Police and other subordinates of the force and empowers the Government to appoint the Deputy Commissioner and Assistant Commissioner of Police. Sections 9 and 10 provide the power to appoint Additional Police Officer and Special Police respectively. No Police Officer has been appointed under the provisions of this Act. All recruitments are notified and appointments made under the Special Rules made under the proviso to Art 309 of the Constitution. Thus, though the post of a Police Officer as defined in Sec.3(b) of the Hyderabad City Police Act 1348 Fasli is beyond the purview of the Presidential Order in view of Para 14 of the said Order, there is in fact no Police Officer as defined in Sec.3(b) of the Hyderabad City Police Act 1348 Fasli, factually in existence.

As there has been no constitution of a separate cadre for the city of Hyderabad for members of the Police Force in terms of Para 3(6) of the Presidential Order, members of the police force allotted or recruited to Hyderabad must be construed as having been so allotted or recruited to either the District cadre of Hyderabad or zonal cadre of Zone VI viz Hyderabad , Nizamabad, Mahabubnagar, Medak and Nalgonda Districts, as the case may be, depending upon the rank they hold, whether it is a District cadre post or a Zonal cadre post.
The post of an Inspector of Police in the Police department having been specified as item 51 of the 3rd Schedule and being a specified gazetted category in terms of Para 2 (1) (i) read with 3(4) of the Presidential Order and being required therefore, to be organised into a zonal cadre of Inspector of Police including those working for the nonce as part of the Hyderabad city police, have to be considered as members of Zone VI which includes the District of Hyderabad. They do not fall within the provisions of Para 14 of the Presidential Order. The transfers from and to the establishments and units of Hyderabad City Police therefore fall within the parameters of Para 5(2)(c) to (d). A person once allotted to one zone and attached to his post must be said to be belonging to the same zone and he has no right to come to any other cadre, which is not organised one.
To the aforementioned extent, the Full bench decision of the Tribunal in O.A.Nos.22622 to 635 must be held to have not been rendered correctly.

CONCLUSIONS:

(a) Transfers from and to the departments, institutions/establishments specified in Para 14 of the Presidential Order are outside the limitations of the Presidential Order.
(b) No separate cadre has been organised for the City of Hyderabad within the meaning of Para 3(6) of the Presidential Order.
(c) No recruitment to the post of a police officer as defined in Sec.3(b) of Hyderabad City Police Act 1348 Fasli has been made and there is thus factually no incumbent of the post of a police officer under Para 14(f) of the Presidential Order.
(d) Inspectors of Police working in the Hyderabad City Police establishments either on promotion to that post or by direct recruitment, must be considered as belonging to Zone VI in the zonal cadre.
(e) The provisions of Sec.3 of the Act 1985 imposing a liability on a member of the police force to serve in any part of the State of Andhra Pradesh and the concomitant power of the State Government to effect such transfer has to be in conformity with the provisions of Para 5(2) of the Presidential Order in view of the provisions of Art.371D(10) of the Constitution and Para 11 of the Presidential Order.
(f) Transfer of a member of the police force from any local cadre to any office or establishment under Para 14 or vice versa, the transfer of a person from any local cadre comprising posts in any office or establishment exercising territorial jurisdiction over a part of the State to another local cadre comprising posts of such part or vice versa and the transfer of a person from one local cadre to another local cadre could be effected only where no qualified or suitable person is available in such later cadre or where such transfer is otherwise considered necessary in the public interest and not otherwise. Wherever such transfers are made on the ground of public interest, such public interest must be of such overriding impact as to warrant a departure from the local cadre discipline set out in paras 3,4, 5(i) and 6 of the Presidential Order.
(g) While effecting such transfer, reasons must be recorded justifying such transfers either on the ground of there being no qualified or suitable person available in the cadre to which transfer is to be effected or on the ground of overriding public interest.
(h) Such transfers are normally to be of limited duration or tenure coterminus with the specified exigency for which the transfer is made and shall cease to be operative and the incumbent transferred liable to be reverted to the parent cadre immediately on the cessation of such exigency, which warranted the transfer.
(i) Transfer on long-term basis or of indeterminate duration should be in the rarest of circumstances, again for clearly specified reasons and there should be a periodical review of the need for continuance of the person so transferred in the transferred local cadre.
(j) In all cases of transfer made in the circumstances set out in Para 5(2)(a) to (c) and on the principles aforestated, the persons so transferred is entitled to his seniority in the unit to which he is transferred. Rule 3 of the Rules under the Act 1985 is valid.
(k) In the case of transfers on reciprocal basis, the seniority of persons transferred shall be in accordance with the prescriptions of Para 5(2)(d). Rule 3 of the Rules under the Act, 1985 is in such cases inoperative.
(l) Even in case of transfers on reciprocal basis, due regard must be had to the principles of maintenance of composition of balance local cadre with reference to age and seniority groups, the administrative needs of the posts in the local cadres and the like as set out in Para 4 (2) of the Presidential Order.
(m) Rule 3 of the Rules made under the provisions of the Act 1985 is operative to the extent it is in conformity with the principles set out in paras (J) and (K) above.
Before parting with this case, we may notice that various other findings of the learned Tribunal had been questioned by the learned counsel for the parties on several grounds, but having regard to the fact that the questions raised in the respective O.As are required to be considered afresh, as at present advised, we do not intend to enter into the said questions.
Having answered the reference as above, resolution of the individual cases is relegated to the Division Bench to be decided on merits of each of the writ petitions.

KARNATAKA ACT No.11 OF 1974

(First published in the Karnataka Gazette Extraordinary on the Eleventh day of April, 1974)

THE KARNATAKA STATE CIVIL SERVICES (REGULATION OF PROMOTION, PAY AND PENSION) ACT, 1973.

(Received the assent of the Governor on the Eleventh day of April 1974)
(As amended by Acts 40 of 1976 and 25 of 1982)

An Act to provide for the prospective promotions of civil servants, and to regulate the pay, seniority, pension and other conditions of service of civil servants in the State of Karnataka including those that are allotted or deemed to be allotted to serve in connection with the affairs of the State of Karnataka under or in pursuance of section 115 of the States Reorganisation Act, 1956.

Whereas on the basis of the ranking of civil servants in the several inter State seniority lists prepared in pursuance of sub-section (5) of section 115 of the States Reorganisation Act, 1956 (Central Act 37 of 1956), courts have directed the making of retrospective promotions to statutory and other offices.

And whereas as held by the Supreme Court in Ajit Singh Vs. State of Punjab, reported in all India Reporter 1967, Supreme Court 856 and in Income-Tax Officer, Alleppy Vs. N.C. Ponnoose, reported in All India Reporter 1970, Supreme Court 385 appointments of civil servants to offices in which statutory functions are exercisable cannot be made with retrospective effect.

And whereas retrospective promotions involve payment of large sums of money to persons who have not worked in the promotional posts of officers concerned, to the detriment of the finances of the State, besides involving retrospective reversions rendering invalid the statutory functions discharged by the persons reverted.

And whereas retrospective promotions preclude the determination of the suitability of the civil servants to hold the promotional posts or offices and will enable them to continue in such posts or offices only on the ground of their eligibility to promotions, resulting in the continuance of even unsuitable civil servants in promotional posts or offices to the detriment of public interest.

And whereas it is necessary and expedient to provide against the said consequences.
And whereas the Central Government has given previous approval under the proviso to sub-section (7) of section 115 of the States Reorganisation Act, 1956 (Central Act 37 of 1956) communicated in letter No.5/5/73-SR (S) dated 22nd February 1973 of the Government of India, Cabinet Secretariat, Department of Personnel and Administrative Reforms.
Be it enacted by the Karnataka Legislature in the Twenty-fourth Year of the Republic of India as follows:
1. Short title and commencement:- (1) This Act may be called the Karnataka State Civil Services (Regulation of Promotion, Pay and Pension) Act, 1973.
(2) This section and sections 2,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 and section 12 shall be deemed to have come into force on the first day of November 1956, and the remaining sections shall come into force at once.
2. Definitions:- In this act unless the context otherwise requires:-
(a) ‘allottee’ means a Government servant allotted or deemed to have been allotted to serve in connection with the affairs of the State of Karnataka under or in pursuance of section 115 of the States Reorganisation Act, 1956 (Central Act 37 of 1956).
(b) ‘civil servant’ means a person who is a member of civil service of the State of Karnataka or who holds a civil post under the State of Karnataka and includes an allottee.
(c) ‘final seniority list’ means an inter-State seniority list of allottees prepared in accordance with the decisions of Central Government under the provisions of sub-section (5) of section 115 of the States Reorganisation Act, 1956 (Central Act 37 of 1956).
(d) ‘inter-State seniority list’ means an inter-State seniority list prepared from time to time, on the basis of the seniority in which the eligibility of an allottee to promotion to higher post or posts is considered.
(e) ‘rules of recruitment’ means the rules of recruitment made in respect of recruitment to any service, post, office or class of posts or offices.
3. Promotions, etc., of civil servants:- (1) No civil servant shall:-
1 [(a) be entitled to promotion to any post or office with effect from a retrospective date, except and to the extent specified in the rules made under this Act].
(1 Substituted by Act 40 of 1976, S-8, (11-4-1974)

(b) only on the ground of his seniority in a seniority list, be promoted to any post or office unless the authority competent to promote determines his eligibility and promotes him by a written order to officiate in such post or office; and no such civil servant shall, save as provided in section 9, be entitled to continue in such promoted post or office unless the said authority assesses the work of such civil servant in such post or office and declares by a written order that he had satisfactorily completed his officiation.
(c) when promoted to officiate in any post or office save as provided in section 9, be entitled to be considered for promotion to the next higher post or office unless he is declared to have satisfactorily completed his officiation in the first promoted post or office.
(2) In matters not specified in sub-section (1), the provisions contained in sections 4,5,6,7 and 8 shall mutatis mutandis, be applicable.
4. Promotions, etc., of allottees:- (1) Where the seniority of an allottee as specified in the provisional inter-State seniority list in any class of post or office has been altered in the final seniority list relating to that class, every promotion made on any date after the first day of November 1956, on the basis of seniority-cum-merit, shall be reviewed with reference to the qualifications and other conditions laid down in the rules of recruitment applicable at the relevant time for such promotion and the ranking in the final seniority list assigned to the allottees in that class of post or office, if any person senior in rank than the person promoted is held to be suitable for promotion on such date (hereinafter in this section referred to as the date of eligibility), an order shall, subject to section 9, be made promoting the said person to officiate in the said post or office with effect from a prospective date to be specified in the order.
(2) As soon as may be, after the person promoted under sub-section (1) is declared to have satisfactorily completed the period of officiation in the promoted post or office an order shall, subject to section 9, be made directing that he shall be entitled to initial pay on the date of actual promotion to the post or office as if he was holding the said post or office from the date of eligibility and drawn the pay and allowances accordingly, but such person shall not be entitled to payment of any arrears for the period prior to the date of his actual promotion. His rank in the seniority list of persons in the class or grade of service to which he is promoted shall be fixed as if he had been promoted to that class or grade of service on the date of eligibility.

I am to invite your attention to the references cited, and to inform you that during the Meeting with officials and representatives of the Unions etc. of Nalgonda District it has been observed that non-locals are working on regular appointment in DRDA/MADA of Nalgonda district against the rule of local reservation. Hence, the remarks of the Project Officer, DRDA and MADA has been offered in the reference first cited.

2. The Project Officer, MADA & PTG, Nalgonda has reported in the letter 2nd cited that Kumari D.Manemma, Asst. P.O (Women), Nalgonda was appointed on consolidated pay under the contingent appointment and she belongs to Chittoor District.

3. The Spl. Gr. Dy. Collector/Project Director, DRDA, Nalgonda has reported in the letter 3rd cited that one Smt P. Shylin, who belongs to East Godavari district (non-local) was appointed on contract basis as APO during 1995 with consolidated emoluments for a period of one year and thereafter she is continuing in service as per the orders of the Hon’ble High Court. The matter is pending in the Court.

4. While examining the issue, it seems by the way there is violation of Act 2/94 in the appointment made. Also contract appointment seems to have been made without sanction by Finance Department.

5. I therefore request you to take a view with regard to the violation of Act 2/94 and also whether the contract appointment can be made without sanction by Government i.e Finance Department.

Along with the note, they have filed copies of the G.O.Ms.No.394, dt. 3-5-76, G.O.Rt.No.342, dt. 6-4-88, G.O.Ms.No.1, dt. 2-1-78, G.O.Ms.No.240, dt. 7-5-86 and also a copy of the order of Sri V. Sunderesan, IAS (Retd.), OMC (SPF.Ser) 90-2, dt. 13-8-91 giving a copy of its recommendation No. 135. In this recommendation, the same issue was considered with regard to other similar cases. The Commission has taken a view that although Government had distributed the 21 posts of Inspectors of Handlooms and Textiles to all the zones including Zone V and VI, and the government have also apportioned among different zones including zones V and VI, the posts for the Inspectors in the office of the Head of the Department (fixing a fair share on the basis of the instructions laid down in the Presidential Order in G.O.P.No.728, dt. 1-11-75 at page 50 of the Guidelines Book at Para 9(b). The appointments to the posts of Inspectors are made from two channels one is the LDCs and Typists from the districts and another LDCs and Typists from the Head Office. The Commission has taken a view that “when the persons from the Head Office to be appointed to a zonal post, the nativity or their local candidature are not the criteria for such appointments. It is only their place in the panel that is relevant for the purpose”. In the process, there is a possibility of a person who is native of one zone being appointed as Inspector in another zone. The other observation made by the Director of Handlooms and Textiles regarding the promotion of persons with regard to the native zone etc is not relevant for the purpose. In view of the above position there does not appear to be any violation of either the Presidential Order or the instructions issued by the government in regard to the promotions of persons of the Directorate to the local cadre posts.”

In the revised draft rules of the Department, the Commission has done away with the posts of Inspectors. Therefore, the present case is confined only to the posts that already existed there. This case arises out of the anomaly caused by the fact that the Government fixed fair proportion of Inspectors posts in different zones based on the basic strength of each zone for the posts in the Head Office also as the Director has pointed out to the Commission at that time, this was not necessary for the promotion posts in the Directorate. The Fair Share Principle applies only if people are taken from the district cadres and zonal cadres either on the deputation or on transfers to the Head of the Dept. Office. However, having earmarked for zones, even though erroneously, he has created a vested right for the candidates of those zones to these promotional posts. Since he has created a roaster based on the fair proportion allotted to each zone, this roaster must yield place to panel seniority because a post earmarked in the roaster for any particular reservation category has to take a candidate of that category only. In this particular case, the petitioner belongs to Zone VI but has been allotted to the posts earmarked in the roaster for Zone II. On the other hand a person of Zone II has been allotted to the post earmarked for zone VI. In this specific case, therefore, the action is not correct. This Commission therefore recommends that the petitioner Sri A Shiv Raj should be deemed to be allotted to the post of Inspector in Zone VI and person allotted in Zone VI should be deemed to be allotted to Zone II where he is local. The transfers and postings will therefore follow this zonal allotment.

This raises a general issue as to what posts does the Fair Share Principle laid down in detail for G.O.P.NO.728, dt. 1-11-1975 apply to. In this department, there has been an error in applying the principle of fair share to the zones for promotion posts in the Head Office. The Department should rectify this even though these posts are abolished.

In the general issue, it will be communicated to all the Departments that this fair share principle applies only to persons taken to the Head Offices from the district cadres or zones on transfer or on deputation following the detailed instructions in this G.O. with particular reference to Para 9(B)(1).

The Department may be asked to rectify this.

Proceedings No.11/OMC/ADILABAD/4/2001, Dt.05-03-2002.

Proceedings of the meeting held on 5.3.2002 with officials of Sericulture Department on the certain representations.

Present : Sri J.M.Girglani, IAS (Retd.)

* * *

Sri K. Noor Mohammed, Farm Foreman working in O/o. Asst. Director of Sericulture, ITDA, Utnoor, Adilabad District to transfer him from Adilabad Dist. (Zone-V) to Anantapur Dist. (Zone-IV) and Sri S. Ravi, Farm Foreman working in O/o. Asst. Director of Sericulture, Karimnagar District to transfer him from Karimnagar District (Zone-V) to his native place Hyderabad (Zone-VI). The grounds for their representations are that on direct appointment they were posted to Districts in which they were not local.

The matter was discussed with Mr. B. Chandrashekar, Joint Director of Sericulture from Head of Department who came along with Mr. V.V.G. Sharma, Office Superintendent.

Sri B.Chandrasekhar mentioned that in the year 1985 they had selected some persons called from Employment Exchange with B.Sc. qualification for training at different institutes in Bhuvaneshwar and some other places as per the number of seats allotted to the Andhra Pradesh by the institutes. The selection of these candidates was as per merit in the B.Sc. examination. Candidates were called for from different Employment Exchanges where Sericulture units existed. However, in making the selection of the candidates to the said training institutions, they have not followed district as a unit of merit but put all the candidates together and made one common merit list on the basis of B.Sc. examination. Accordingly the candidates were sent for training. After the training, on the basis of the merit list in the training institutes, candidates were given postings. Again there was no district-wise merit list. Obviously there were no candidates from Adilabad and Karimnagar Districts sent for training. The result of that was that the vacancies in these Districts were filled up by candidates on the basis of their merit in the training institute but the rule of local cadre and local candidate was not observed. So only non-local candidates were allotted. The initial mistake was that in making the selection for training the department should have kept in view the number of vacancies in each district. Because, the training-candidates were ultimately be appointed to these vacancies.

The merit list should have been district-wise and postings should also have been on the basis of local candidate for local cadre. If there were any candidates from the local Employment Exchanges of these Districts, they were obviously weeded out initially itself by following merit in B.Sc. examination for all candidates together. It is not even very certain whether candidates were called for from the different Employment Exchanges where Sericulture units are located. If they did call for from different districts then the appropriate thing was to select for training, district-wise. However, what has happened is now ‘fait accompli’, a case of deviation from Presidential Order, intended or inadvertent one can never know.

The petitioners were posted not in the free merit quota where non-locals can also figure, but in total violation of the Presidential Order, which was ignored and no locals were selected, trained or posted. However, at this stage the candidate from Anantapur district cannot be allotted back to Anantapur district even if they take last rank in seniority for the simple reason that according to the Joint Director there are no vacancies available in Anantapur district. Similarly, the candidate from Hyderabad cannot be posted to Hyderabad for the simple reason that there is no vacancy in Hyderabad District. The Commission would not consider it right to recommend creation of supernumerary vacancies for them. They have to remain where they are. The only recommendation the Commission can make is that as and when there is a clear vacancy for each of them in their respective local areas viz. Anantapur and Hyderabad respectively, they may be posted to their local districts after verifying their educational record with regard to their local status. In the HOD Office if there is a vacancy of a Farm Foreman then the Karimnagar man can be posted in that vacancy after verifying his actual local status. Since transfers would have to be sanctioned by the Government the Commission recommends to the Government to approve these transfers as and when they are proposed in clear vacancies. The Head of Department can enclose a copy of the Commission’s above proceedings while making the proposal to the Government if and when the vacancies are available. Since this case is likely to go into the Commission’s Report in the category of appointments in violation of Presidential Order, the HOD may

please check up if the factual position as given by the Joint Director is correct since he was mentioning that he was only I/c P.A. to Director and was not fully in the know of things and the facts were actually being narrated on his behalf before the Commission by the Office Superintendent.

Therefore the request is rejected.

However, Government is requested to take up the general with the Government of India and issue necessary orders with G.O.I consent making the post a zonal post as a specified gazetted category under Schedule 3 to Presidential Order as was the case with the post B.D.0 and M.D.O from M.D.O to M.P.D.O is only a change of designation. The post is exactly the issue. Hence its original character under Presidential Order should be restored.

I invite your attention to the representation cited, wherein you had requested to rectify the anomaly and re-consideration of the allotment of Zone-V in respect of Mr. M.A.K.Hashmi and Mr. P. Bikshapathy.

After examining your representation, the Commission has come to a conclusion that it is obvious that the appeals of the two individuals mentioned in the petition against their initial allotment were rejected, and so their allotment become final and they did not agitate in Andhra Pradesh Administrative Tribunal. You were not an Objector to their initial allotment.

Hence you have no ‘locus standi’ to question their initial allotment, when the concerned individuals themselves have acquired in it and accepted it over the last 26 years and you were not an Objector.

In view of the above facts there are no merits in your representation in the result the representation is hereby rejected.

In his petition 1st read above, Sri. P. Gangu Naidu, Superintendent 14 (A) Bn. NCC, Srikakulam has stated he was appointed as Typist in 10 (A) Bn. NCC, Visakhapatnam on 22-9-1973 and worked from 22-9-1973. Subsequently he was transferred to 9 (A) Bn. NCC, Vizianagaram on 9-5-1974. Later on he was transfred to 11(A) Bn.

Due to raising of new Battalion in Srikakulam (Zone – I), he was transferred to 14(A) Bn. NCC, Srikakulam as per NCC Directorate (A.P), Secunderabad Order No. NCC(A.P.)/911/4/E-1-7 dated 25-9-1979 from 8 (A) Bn. NCC, Mahabubnagar (Zone – VI) as per the Govt. instructions vide Para 2 if G.O.Ms. No. 851, Education Dept., dated 19-9-1979. His seniority was overlooked from 22-9-1973 though Government had permitted his transfer to Srikakulam dist. (Zone – I) vide para.4 of NCC Directorate (A.P.), Secunderabad letter No. NCC (A.P.)/918/1/637/E-4(153) dated 29-8-2001. His Department had not mentioned that he would take last rank in the list of approved probationers in Zone – I. He has consequently lost his Seniority form 22-9-1973 to 16-10-1979 on joining in Zone – I (Visakahapatnam, Vizianagaram and Srikakulam even though he had opted for Zone in April, 1977).

3. The Dy. Director General, NCC in his letter 3rd read above has stated that Sri. P. Gangu Naidu was appointed as Typist on 22-9-1973 in 10(A) Bn. NCC, Visakhapatnam and worked in that Unit upto 8-5-1974. Thereafter, he was transferred to the then 9(A) Bn. NCC, Vizianagaram, at his request and worked there till 4-5-1977. At the time of implementation of Presidential Order and Organisation of local cadres, one Steno – Typist and Two Typists (including the applicant) had opted for Visakhapatnam District. The then 9(A) Bn. NCC, Vizianagaram was disbanded during May 1977. The applicant who was working in that Unit as Typist opted for Visakahapatnam District. Consequent to the re-organisation in his Department by the Govt. of India in 1977, only one Typist post was available in Visakhapatnam District, due to dis-bandment of NCC units. In order to avoid retrenchment, Sri. P. Gangu Naidu, who was the Junior most in the category of Typist and was found surplus in Visakhapatnam District was allotted to Mahabubnagar District vide G.O.Ms.No.470, EDN.(X) Dept., dt: 18-4-1977 vidde this Dept. Order No. NCC(A.P)/910/10/SPF/E-1/T&S(11), dated 19-4-2001 where clear vacancy of Typist post was available. His representation for re-allotment to Visakhapatnam District was also rejected by the Govt. vide Govt. Memo. No. 438/X/77-56, Edn. Dept., Dt: 11-5-1979. During the year 1979, 14(A) Bn. NCC, Srikakulam was raised / opened since the individual belongs to Zone – I, the Head of the Department has considered his case to transfer him to 14(A) Bn. NCC, Srikakulam in accordance with the orders of the Govt. issued in G.O.Ms.No.851, Edn. Dept., dt:19-9-1979. As such his seniority being maintained in Zone – I w.e.f. his date of promotion as Senior Assistant i.e., 13-5-1982 and he was promoted as Superintendent accordingly. The Seniority of the individual was maintained in Mahabubnagar District in the category of Typist, till he was transferred to his native district. After his transfer to Srikakulam District as Typist and after conversion as Junior Assistant, he was further promoted as Senior Assistant w.e.f. 13-5-1982. Accordingly his seniority in the Zone – I was maintained w.e.f. 13-5-1982 i.e. the date of his promotion as Senior Assistant. Then he was promoted as superintendent on his turn, and no juniors to him were promoted as Superintendents., by – passing his seniority in Zone – I. His request to change his Zonal allotment from Zone – VI to Zone – I at this stage is not correct, as he has already accepted the transfer to Srikakulam Dist. (Zone – I) and no representation whatsoever was preferred by him against the said transfer. He is presently serving in Zone – I w.e.f. 17-10-1979.

4. The Commission has carefully considered the case. The initial allotment was to Mahaboobnagar though the petitioner was serving in Vijayanagaram. This was under Presidential Order para 4(4), for want of vacancies in his Local District. Later on when vacancies become available Govt. was kind and considerate in adjusting him in the vacancies in the local cadre to which he belonged. To that extent, it cannot be considered as a “ request transfer” that results in a person taking the last rank in the seniority in the cadre to which he is transferred. This in infact a suo moto transfer by Govt. to put a local condidate back in his local cadre from which he was plucked out in the initial allotment. So he cannot lose his original seniority which is from 22-9-1973. This seniority has to be restored to him as posting consequent on formation of local cadres and allotments therein under the Presidential Order either initially or little late, in appeal or otherwise suo moto by the Govt. cannot take away a person’s original seniority which is traceable to his original post in his own District Cadre where he was local candidate.

5. The petition is allowed and may be recommended to Government for restoration of his seniority. i.e. from 22-9-1973.

I enclose herewith a copy of references first and second cited.
In the representation 1st cited, Dr. P. Jayaram, Lecturer in Microbiology, Government Degree College, Kamareddy has requested the One Man Commission for his transfer from Zone-VI to Zone-III i.e from Government Degree College, Kamareddy to D.K Government Degree College for Women, Nellore.

On receipt of the report from the Director of Collegiate Education in the reference second cited the OMC has examined the case in detail are as follow:-

This is a case of an institution coming under the Government for the first time long after the passing of the Presidential Order. It is something like opening a new government office or department. When such a thing happens, for that new organization which comes under the Presidential Order for the first time, the exercise to be undertaken is the same as was done from 18-10-1975 onwards for the first time for the entire government and local bodies viz., to bring this new organization under the system of local cadres both district and zonal existing within the department. The existing staff of the institution would then be taken up for initial allotment in the same way as was done when Presidential Order was first brought into force applying the provisions of Para 4 (4) of the Presidential Order which are applied for initial allotments. If this exercise is done, some of the staff may be sent to their local districts and local zones respectively and in their place some staff would be brought from other zones and districts but would be local for this organization. This exercise was not done. The Director, Collegiate Education may undertake this exercise and bring this organization under the Presidential Order by necessary reallotments and consequent transfers.

It has been brought to the notice of the Commission in the reference 1st cited above that one Sri D. Jayamani Raju, a surplus employee, Work Inspector, Gr.IV in NSC Circle Nuziveedu was appointed as Jr. Asst. in Medak District in Labour Department in terms of the orders issued in Memo No.48966/A/621/SMPC/97 of Finance and Planning (FW.PC.II) Department, dt.08.10.1977. Subsequently, the individual was absorbed as Jr. Asst. in Medak district basing on the above orders.

On examination, the OMC requested the Commissioner of Labour to verify and furnish a detailed report on this appointment.

The Commissioner Labour has reported that after completion of 5 years of service as NMR the individual was appointed as Work Inspector Gr.IV on 30.04.1986 in the O/o Dy. Executive Engineer, NSC sub division, Nuzeveedu. Subsequently, as per Government Memo No.48966-A/621/SMPC/97, F&P (FWPC-II) Department, dated 08.10.1977, he was allotted as Jr. Asst. in the Labour Department as surplus staff by the C.E., NS Project, Hill Colony, Nalgonda district vide Proc. Dated 23.10.1977. Consequent on allotment and basing on the clarification issued in Memo No.1102/Lab.IV/A1/97-1, dt 06.02.1998 and Memo No.427/Lab-IV/A1/98-1, dt 01.05.1998, the Dy. Commissioner Labour Ranga Reddy, has posted the individual in the O/o Asst. Labour Office, Narsapur, Medak as Jr. Asst. in the existing vacancy vide Proc. No.A1/182/98 on 16.07.1998. Medak district comes under Zone-VI.

In addition to the above, he has also reported that on verification of the educational records it is seen that the individual is a native of Krishna District and local candidate of Krishna District and consequent on allotment as surplus staff, the individual was absorbed as Jr. Asst. in Medak District under the control of D.C., Labour Ranga Reddy Zone. He is a non-local in Medak Dist.

In the context of this case and other similar cases and representations to the Commission on his visits to the Districts it is seen that absorption of surplus staff is being done without applying Presidential Order with regard to local candidates. Kindly inform whether there is any order of the State Government or Government of India to exclude such absorption without following the rule of reservation for local candidates. If so a copy may kindly be sent urgently, so as to enable to Commission for incorporation in its report on this issue. If there are no such orders do the Govt. propose to get such orders issued in concurrence with the Government of India (through G.A(SPF) Department) to include such absorption under schedule to GSR.529(E) under sub para (8) of para 3 of Presidential Order.

The Commissioner Labour has replied to the minutes of the meeting mentioned above.

Point No.1 “ The Labour officer mentioned that 40% of Asst. Labour Officers were by direct recruitment and 60% by promotion. But there were non-locals of other zones also, though all the 60% promotion posts should be from the same zone. The 40% direct recruitment has also to follow the Presidential Order. Out of a total 48 promotion quota to the posts of Asst. Labour Commissioner, 15 were from outside the zone”.

On the said point, the Commissioner of Labour has informed that the post of Asst. Labour officer is a zonal cadre post and that one of the channels of promotion to this post is a from Senior Assts/Senior Stenos working in the O/o Commissioner of Labour. The cycle of vacancies rotated is as follows.

01. Senior Assistant/Senior Stenographer
02. Senior Assistant/Senior Stenographer
03. Senior Assistant/Senior Stenographer
04. Labour Welfare Center Staff
05. Senior Assistant/Senior Stenographer
06. Senior Assistant/Senior Stenographer
07. Senior Assistant/Senior Stenographer
08. Senior Assistant/Senior Stenographer
09. Senior Assistant/Senior Stenographer
10. Senior Assistant/Senior Stenographer

This is in the Rules.

Under the 60% promotion quota, appointment to the posts of Asst. Labour Officer shall be made in the ratio prescribed in the Rules viz., 9:1. Among Senior Assts/Senior Stenos in the Directorate and Subordinate office the appointment shall be made in the ratio of 2:3 as follows:-

3rd Vacancy :- Subordinate Offices

No.728, dt. 1.11.75 issued by the G.A.(SPF-A) Department as Instructions issued under the Presidential Order (at Page-53 of the Guidelines Book).

In continuation of the commission’s letter 2nd cited, I would like to inform you that the Registrar of Co-Operative Societies has furnished report regarding appointments made by the authorities in Medak District in Serial Numbers 5,6,7,8,9 viz. Ramesh Babu, Jr.Inspector, Shivvaiah, Jr.Inspector, Srinivas Rao, Jr.Inspector, Siddareddy, Jr.Inspector, Krishna Murthy, Co-op Sub Registrar of your representation 1st cited in violation of guidelines contained in G.O.Ms.No.610 GA(SPF-A) Dept. dt:30.12.85

2. On the above, the commission has examined the said issue in detail as follows:-

3. In the year 1993, the APPSC, has allotted 85 candidates to the post of Jr.Inspector in Zone-VI. Out of 85 candidates, 60 candidates were local and 25 candidates were non-local allotted to the cooperative department. Only 52 locals and 23 Non – Local candidates were Joined. The percentage of non-locals comes to 29.41%.

4. Further as per the Para 8(2)(a) of AP Public Employment (Organisation of Local Cadres and Regulation of Direct Recruitment) Order 1975 posts belongs to non – Gazetted categories other than L.D.C posts, 70% of the posts to be filled by direct recruitment by local candidates.

5. The Serial Numbers 5 to 8 as pointed out in your representation, that the above four candidates are included in the allotment of 25 non-locals to this Zone, as per the percentage that there is no excess allotment of non-locals.

6. In addition to the above, even in the year 1979 the allotment made by the APPSC is not exceeding the 30% in Zone VI under non-locals. In the said allotment the Serial Number 9 viz., Sri K. Krishna Murthy was allotted under non-local quota by Direct Recruitment. Now the individual is Co-Operative Sub-Registrar. On the allotment of candidates by the APPSC the Co-Operative Department in tern has issued orders.

7. Hence, there is no case for interference by the OMC in respect of the appointments made by the Co-Operative Department based on the allottment orders issued by the APPSC in respect of Serial Numbers 5 to 9 (viz.)Ramesh Babu, Jr.Inspector, Shivvaiah, Jr.Inspector, Srinivas Rao, Jr.Inspector, Siddareddy, Jr.Inspector, Krishna Murthy, Co-op Sub Registrar in your representation 1st cited.

1. The president Telelngana D.A.Os (Works) Association in their representation dt: 24-9-2001 while explain in detail has represented for the implementation of the following:

I. Zonal System is in Existence up to the cadre of Asst. Director, Deputy Registrar, Deputy Executive Engineer, whose scale of pay ( Rs.6950 -13,900 )is equal to that of Asst. Pay & Accounts Officer (APAO). Hence, on the same lines, Zonal System should be extended up to the cadre of APAO in works Accounts Service.

II. All Non – Locals working in D.A.O’s cadre in 5th and 6th zones and twin cities of Hyderabad & Secunderabad should be transferred to their respective zones and local candidates should be fill up resultantly fallen vacancies.

III. As a first step, all the vacancies caused either on account of promotions or retirements in twin cities or Telangana area should be filled up by local candidates.

2. A meeting was held on 10-1-2002 with the following representatives of Telangana Divisional Accounts officers (Works) Assn.

1. Sri. S.A. Raoof., President.
2. Sri. G. Anjaiah, Vice president.
3. Sri. K. Srinivasa Chary, Genl. Secretary.
4. Sri. T. Dayaker, Treasurer.

3. A meeting was called for with the official of Fin. & Plg. (W&P) Dept., on 17-4-2002 in the chambers of OMC. Sri. P. Umamaheswara Rao. Jt. Secy. Works Accounts attended the meeting on behalf of the Dept.

4. The Divisional Accountants entered the Government of A.P. through G.O.Ms.No.304, Finance and Planning (Finance Wing – WA-I) Department, dt: 20.11.1979 with effect from 01.01.1980 as Gazetted Officers. Hence, their case is not of a Non-gazetted cadre of the State Government that was Gazetted later on after 18.10.1975 but they are Gazetted at the inception of the service as a State service. That being the case, as the Commission has already held in its Preliminary Report that the demand for making all first level gazetted posts as zonal posts means the expansion of the scope of the Presidential Order which was not recommended. On the other hand, had they been Non-gazetted and zonal at the time of the Presidential Order 18.10.1975 in the State Government and had they been gazetted in the State Government later, then, as the Commission has already held, they would have justifiably been brought under the category of specified Gazetted Officers as zonal posts as in principle, the original scope of the Presidential Order cannot be abridged. But in the present circumstances there is no case for bringing them under the specified Gazetted Officers category as zonal posts, as they are ‘ab initio’ Gazetted, in the State Government, and hence ab initio outside the Presidential order as State – Wide Posts.

5. The argument that the first gazetted posts in the Engineering Departments, Assistant Executive Engineers and even Deputy Executive Engineers, are gazetted and yet brought under the specified gazetted categories as zonal posts does not have any relevance because in each Engineering Division there will be a large number of AEEs and DEEs whereas the number of Divisional Accountants will be one in each division equal to the number of EEs of the division. Therefore drawing an analogy between AEEs and DEEs and the Divisional Accountants is not relevant in this context. In fact, Presidential Order considered AEEs & DEEs on a totally different footing from other Gazetted Officers except a few in the specified Gazetted Officer category. AEEs and DEEs were brought under the specified categories right from the beginning under the Presidential Order even when a large number of other first gazetted posts were kept outside the Presidential Order. Therefore, there is no case for Divisional Accountants Gr.II or Gr.I being brought under the category of specified gazetted post as zonal posts. Like all other first and second gazetted posts, which were not brought under the specified gazetted category on 18.10.1975, these could also remain out side the Presidential Order, as State – Wide posts.

6. The Commission does not consider their request for being inclusion in the category of specified Gazetted Officers to be justified and hence rejects their plea.

Proceedings on the representation of Sri.Ch.Venkateshwara Rao, Asst.Inspector of Sericulture O/o Asst.Director of Sericulture. ITDA, West Godavari Dist.

Present : Sri J.M.Girglani, IAS, (Retd)

* * *

Proceeding.No.11/OMC/W.G Dist/1/2002. Dated: 09-05-2002

Sri. Ch.Venkateshwara Rao Asst. Inspector of Sericulture in the O/o Asst.Director of Sericulture ITDA, K.R.Puram, West Godavari Dist. transfer from West Godavari Dist. (Andhra Region from Zone II) to re-allotment to his native dist. Karimnagar Dist. (Telangana Zone V). The grounds for his representation is that on direct appointment, he was posted in West Godavari Dist. Zone II due to non-availability of post of Asst. Inspector of Sericulture in Karimnagar district Zone V.

Sri.Ch.Venkateshwara Rao was appointed in the year 1992 as Asst. Inspector of Sericulture in the Sericulture Dept. Prior to his appointment he was selected and sponsored by the sericulture dept. as a local candidate through employment exchange Karimnagar. He has also admitted that due to non- availability of posts in the cadre of Asst. Inspector of Sericulture, in Zone V he was appointed in Zone – II West Godavari Dist. His educational qualification was completed in the “Telangana area”.

On the representation, the Commissioner of Sericulture, who has consulted in the matter has reported that the individual was appointed in the year 1992 vide proceedings Rc.No 6455/91-B2, dated 22-07-1992 under rule 10 (a) (i) of A.P.State and Subordinate Service rules, in the time scale of Rs/- 1150-40-1510-50-2110 with usual admissable allowances with effect from the date of joining the post. The recruitment for the said post is (1) by direct recruitment and (2) by promotion from the category of Farm Foreman Grade – I.

The individual who holds a Post Graduate Diploma in Sericulture from Karimnagar Dist. was appointed in Zone – II as Non-local candidate under 30% quota with reference to the instructions issued by the GA (SPF-A) Dept. in G.O.Ms.No. 729, dated 01-11-1975. The Commissioner of Sericulture has reported that there are no direct recruitment vacancies available in the cadre of Asst. Inspector in Karimnagar district under Zone – V at the time of the initial appointment of individual in the department.

The initial mistake was that in making the selection for training, the department should have kept in view the number of vacancies in each district, because, the training-candidates were ultimately be appointed to these vacancies. The merit list should have been district-wise and postings should also have been on the basis of local candidate for local cadre. If there were any candidates from the local Employment Exchanges of these Districts, they were obviously weeded out initially itself by following the merit in B.Sc examination for all candidates together. It is not even very certain whether candidates were called for from the different Employment Exchanges where Sericulture units are located. If they did call for from different districts then the appropriate thing was to select for training, district-wise. However, what has happened is now ‘fait accompli’, a case of deviation from Presidential Order, intended or inadvertent one can never know.

The petitioner was posted not in the free merit quota where non-locals can also figure, but in total violation of the Presidential Order, which was ignored and no locals were selected, trained or posted. However, at this stage the candidate from Karimnagar district cannot be allotted back to Karimnagar district even if he takes last rank in seniority for the simple reason that according to the Commissioner of Sericulture there were no direct recruitment vacancies of Asst. Inspector of Sericulture available in Karimnagar district. The commission would not consider it right to recommend creation of supernumerary vacancy for him. He has to remain where he is The only recommendation the Commission can make is that as and when there is a clear vacancy in his local areas viz. Zone – V, he may be posted to his local zone after verifying his educational record with regard to his local status. In the HOD Office if there is a vacancy of Asst. Inspector of Sericulture then the West Godavari man can be posted in that vacancy after verifying his actual local status. Since transfers would have to be sanctioned by the Government the Commission recommends to the Government to approve this transfer as and when it is proposed in clear vacancy. The Head of Department can enclose a copy of the

Commission’s above proceedings while making the proposal to the Government if and when the vacancies are available. Since this case is likely to go into the Commissions Report in the category of appointments in violation of Presidential Order the HOD may please check up if the factual position as given by him is correct.

This is a case of pathetic injustice arising out of a deviation from the spirit of the State Reorganisation Act which assured the people of all the regions and particularly of Telangana which now constituted Zones V & VI, safeguards for their service rights and interests. This is a case of a period before the Presidential Order and pertains to the period when the Mulki Rules were in force.

Sri V. Ramana Chary who was holding the post of LDC was brought as Typist-cum-Librarian (equivalent to that of L.D.C., and inter- changeable therewith). To do justice to his job he did a certificate course in Library Science from Osmania University. Then on 9-1-1964 the General Body of the M.C.H. created the post of a Librarian and advertised it and also called for candidates from Employment Exchange. The qualification prescribed was Diploma in Library Science. Before the advertisement Miss P. S. Venkata Laxmi working as Asst. Librarian in Nursing College applied for the post. In response to advertisement Sri V. Ramana Chary who was already working but drawing the lower grade of Typist-cum-Librarian applied. Miss V.Lakshmi was non-mulki; in spite of that the General Body approved her appointment but she failed to join. Her appointment as non-Mulki was irregular. Sri. V. Ramana Chary continued in his post and it was ultimately on 26.7.1969 the qualification was relaxed and he was appointed as full fledged Librarian in the higher scale. The irregular appointment of a non-Mulki resulted in loss of time. The Commissioner wrote to the Government that since any way the relaxation of qualification was given and he was continuing as Librarian throughout discharging the same duties, it was just and fair that he should be appointed in the Librarian scale with effect from the date of creation of the post i.e. 9.1.1964. The Government did not accept the proposal though there was a very sound reasoning and justice behind it. Meanwhile those who were L. D. Cs., working with him and junior to him went on getting their regular promotions and ended up at much higher posts and consequently with higher pension. He got bogged down in the Librarian post and fell between two stools. Neither did he get the Librarian post till 29.6.1970 nor did he get the various promotions that his colleagues as L. D. Cs., got during that period.

This Commission feels that since the entire exercise of going into G.O.Ms.No.610 and the injustice done at a long distance of time before the GO and before the present day, had to be set right, this is a case that the Government can consider for purposes of fixation of pension w.e.f. the date which was recommended by the Commissioner justly and rightly namely 09.01.1964, the date of creation of the Librarian’s post in which he was actually functioning at the time. He is an old man with no support of his children who have also not come up in life. This is the case which if we consider favourably, will combine many important principles moral as well legal.

1. It will be in the spirit of the State Re-organisation Act, 1956 which safeguards the rights of the mulkis against any injustice particularly due to the domicile considerations.
2. It will be a case of doing natural justice.
3. It will be a case of compassion combined with justice.

The case is therefore recommended for favourable consideration of the Government along with a copy of the petition with all its enclosures and the Report of the Commissioner, MCH on the present case, which is not now contextually relevant.

He has further stated that the Department considered his case as Dy. Tahasildar (C.S), Ananthapur and justifiably, he could have been continued as Superintendent in the O/o. the Chief Rationing Officer, Hyderabad or transfer to any circle in Hyderabad or any District adjacent to Hyderabad in Zone-VII, as he was a physically handicapped person.

The request of the petitioner was examined by the Commission and it was observed that the Transfer from a Special Office or Establishment as per Para 14 (c) of the Presidential Order to a Zonal cadre can be done only if the State Government have made a provision to this effect in the special Rules issued to the cadres of the Department vide Para 10 (a) of the clarification G.O.P.728, dated 18-11-1975. No such provision has been made in the Spl. Rules of Civil Supplies Department pertaining to the posts of Dy. Tahasildars of Civil Supplies or Superintendents, so far in spite of the recommendation of this Commission earlier while reviewing the Departmental cadres.

Hence the transfer from Chief Rationing Office Hyderabad which has been declared as a special office / Establishment under G.S.R. 526(E) to any Zone is in violation of Presidential Order as per Para 14 (C) therein.

During the meeting with OMC on 30-07-2001, it was brought to the notice of the OMC that in the year 1991, five Dy. Tahsildars were allotted to Nalgonda District. Out of them three from the outside zone. In this connection I would like to inform you that the information furnished on the allotment of Dy. Tahsildars to Nalgonda district from outside zone has been examined by the Commission in detail, and the Commission has come finds that the APPSC has allotted to the zone No VI. Dy. Tahsildars of whom 55 were locals and 23 non-loals. Nalgonda is one of the Districts of this zone. The ratio of this allotment works out to 70.5:29.5. Of these any number of locals or non-locals can go to a particular District. That is of no consequence. As the ratio is zonal for the Zonal Cadre. Hence, there is no ground for complaint and the issue is dropped.

With reference to your representation the matter has been got examined by the Commissioner of Technical Education, APPSC and the Govt. in the Education Department. It was found in the process that the post of “Associate Lecturer” at the time of your recruitment was a “Gazetted post with State wide jurisdiction” – and the same was not included in the Third Schedule of the Presidential Order in the Specified Gazetted cadre, for consideration on Zonal basis. Neither the post can be treated, in retrospect, as a Specified Gazetted cadre post.

Hence you are informed that no violation of Presidential Order can be attributed to your appointment as Associate Lecturer and the Commission cannot take any action in the matter.

The Petitioner represented that he was deprived of his promotion as Private Secretary to M.D. primarily, due to the following aspects:-

(1) Non implementation of the Presidential Order by the Authorities.

(2) Due to the modification of the Service Rules by the Board – introducing “ Degree” as a necessary qualification for promotion to the post of Private Secretary.

(3) Including the post of “Junior Manager” (Zonal post) as a feeder category of Private Secretary which is a post confined to the Head Office only.

The statement of the M.D. vide his letter dt:23-1-2002 that the Six Point Formula is not applicable to the A.P. Dairy Development Coop. Federation Limited, since it is an autonomous body, do not appear to be tenable in view of the resolutions of the Federation “ to implement the zonal system under the Six Point Formula” (vide Federation Circular No: Per/V-2/26565/85, Dt:13-11-85 and vide the Minutes No:21,14 of the 85th Meeting of the Board of Directors of the A.P. Dairy Development Coop. Federation Limited, held on 2-2-91) – by appointing a Spl. Committee to examine the issues of Six Point Formula. The action taken further on this matter though not explained latter, the implementation of Presidential Order is evident in the zonalisation of its cadres.

While it is so, the appointment of a Junior Manager belonging to Zone – III to the post of Private Secretary to M.D. which is a post of the Head Office becomes a violation of the localization Scheme adopted by the Federation.

Since, according to Para 5(1) of the Presidential Order and as per the Para 4(1) of the Instructions issued in the U.O.Note No: 963/SPF-A/89-1, G.A. (SPF) Detp., dt: 21-10-88 no specific Rules have been made by the Federation for the transfer of a person from a ‘local cadre’ to ‘Head Office’. The action of the Federation under its localization scheme becomes wrong.

Regarding the modifications made in the Rules, the Federation made certain changes in the Rules for the Feeder category by including a non feeder category post of “Junior Manager” and the qualification upgrading the same to a “Degree” for the post of P.S. to M.D. However, the Co-Operative Tribunal in its order CTA No:160/99 dated: 31-1-2000 has struck down the “Service Regulations” framed by the Federation as invalid since they were not approved by the ‘Registrar’. In consequence the promotion given to Sri. K.Venkateswara Rao, Junior Manager (from Zone III) becomes null and void since the original Rules do not provide the channel for a “Junior Manager” to the post of Private Secretary to M.D. and similarly the verdict of the Cooperative Tribunal eliminates the stipulation of the “Graduation” qualification for promotion to the post of Private Secretary to M.D., as the same was not provided for in the Original Rules of the Dairy Development Department.

Further the orders issued in the G.O.Ms.No: 134, Forest and Rural Development Department, dt:23-3-1981 provides for the protection of the earlier Rules and Service conditions to the employees of the Dairy Development Department transferred to the fold of the Federation.

In the Circumstances this Commission opines that, in violation of localization scheme based on the Presidential Order, injustice has been done to the Petitioner in his promotion to the post of the P.S. to M.D., in the A.P. Dairy Development Coop. Federation limited, in spite of his eligibility to the post with reference to the feeder category, qualification, service and seniority. Hence the Commission holds that “Shri. R. Ashok Babu, P.A. to G.M. (GA), O/o. the M.D., A.P. Dairy Development Coop. Federation Limited shall be promoted to the post of P.S. to M.D., with effect from the date on which the promotion has been wrongly given to Sri. K. Venkateswara Rao, Junior Manager (Zone III).

Sri. K.Venkateswara Rao, Junior Manger (Zone-III) may be repatriated to Zone III as his posting in the Head Office also becomes a violation of the localization scheme of Presidential Order adopted by the Federation since the Rules of the Federation do not provide for the transfer of a Zonal category post to a post in the Head Office, specifically.

Government in A.H. & Fisheries Department is, therefore, requested to direct the M.D. A.P. Dairy Development Coop. Federation Limited to take action as recommended herein above and to send compliance report to the Govt. marking a copy to this Commission, at the earliest.

With reference to your letter cited the issue has been re-examined. The Board of Directors of the APDDCF Ltd., had adopted the Presidential Order in the Minute No. 43 of the 4th Meeting of the Board of Directors held on 15.10.1981, which was withdrawn in the Board Minute No. 21 of the 13th meeting on 26.03.1982. Again vide Federation Circular No.PER/V-2/26565/85, dt: 13.11.1985 and vide the minutes No. 21, 14 of the 85th Meeting of the Board of Directors of the APDDCF Ltd., and on 02.02.1991, the Board has again decided to adopt and implement the Presidential Order.

The Presidential Order once adopted voluntarily by an Organisation cannot be revoked at will, since, during the years of implementation certain recruitments, transfers, deputations etc. would have already taken place and the same cannot be undone after the discontinuance of the implementation at a later date. Once localised cadres are constituted these cannot be capriciously delocalised as that causes prejudice and jeopardy to the local candidates. In individual cases too localisation scheme once adopted has to be applied justly and uniformly, not selectively or arbitrarily. Once adopted it is the principles of the Presidential Order that must guide the action of the Federation without favour or prejudice to individual candidates of any local area / zone.

In that context and spirit the Commission’s proceedings may be followed, in fairness to employees of all the local cadres.

***

In the reference 1st cited an unemployee from Karimnagar District Sri. R. Sampath, submitted a representation to this commission (copy enclosed) stating that he attended an Interview on 18-5-1995 for the post of A.R.Police Constables in Karimnagar Dist., but, was not selected due to some irregularities in the selection process i.e., selection of non-locals and candidates with recommendations.

2. A report from the Superintendent of Police, Karimnagar Dist. has been called for on the issue vide his letter 2nd cited (copy enclosed), the Superintendent of Police, Karimnagar vide his letter 3rd cited (copy enclosed) stated that Sri. R. Sampath had applied for the post of A.R. Police Constable in Karimnagar Dist. during, 1994-95 recruitment with Regd.No:877840. He was called for the oral Interview conducted on 18-5-1995. He belongs to O.C. He stood at 285th place in the merit list. The last candidate who was selected in the O.C. category stood at 153rd place in the merit list. Hence the applicant was not selected. The rule of reservation as per S.P.F. has been followed strictly. No irregularities have crept in the Interview as alleged by the applicant. The allegations made by the applicant in his representation were false and baseless. In view of the above facts, no further action was needed on his representation and it deserves to be lodged.

3. After examining the report of the S.P., Karimnagar Dist., and going through the record, this Commission vide letter 4th cited elicited the following in formation from the S.P. Karimnagar :-

1. No. of Vacancies notified.
2. No. of local candidates selected total and under O.C.
3. No. of non – local candidates selected total & under. O.C. list.
4. What was his number in the integrated merit list ?
5. Was there written examination or only interview ?

4. In response to the above, the S.P., Karimnagar furnished the following reply Point wise :-

1. A total number of 292 vacancies were notified for ARPCs posts during 1994-1995 recruitment.

2. A total number of 234 local candidates were selected. Among them 128 were under O.C. category. Out of 128, 106 were under local O.C. category and 22 were under non – local O.C. category.

3. A total number of 58 non – local candidates were selected and out of them 22 were under O.C. category.

4. His number was at 285th place in the integrated merit list.
5. There was only interview and no written examination was there to the posts of A.R.P.Cs.

5. Having gone through the whole matter, this Commission observed, that the recruitment in question has been conducted with the conception that the vacancies are to be filled with “80% locals and 20% non – locals”. This concept adopted by the S.P., Karimnagar is in contravention of the Presidential Order, under which “the preference (or reservation ) is only for locals to the extent of 80%. The remaining 20% is open quota to be selected on merit basis. There is no reservation for non-locals as such. In the 20% merit quota both locals and non-locals could come. The Procedure for recruitment is clearly laid down in G.O.P. No:763, G.A. (SPF-A) Deptt., dt:15-11-1975 which is to be followed by all the Departments. Any contravention in this regard tantamounts to the violation of the Presidential Order. Now that procedure has been revised in G.O.Ms.No.8, G.A.(SPF.A) Department, Dt. 08-01-2002.

6. The S.P. Karimnagar District has been guided in this regard and has also been advised to rectify the situation on certain lines. (copy of the letter addressed to the S.P. Karimnagar is enclosed herewith for ready reference)

7. Further this Commission opines that this is not a singular case wherein such misconception of the Presidential Order has happened. And hence holds that the Procedures/ Guidelines as elucidated in G.O.P.No: 763, G.A. (SPF-A) Deptt., dt:15-11-75 as revised in G.O.Ms.No.8, cited 6th above are to be reiterated to the various Heads of Departments to ensure the strict implementation of the Presidential Order.

8. You are therefore, in the instant case, requested to clarify the Procedure as envisaged in G.O.P.No:763, G.A.(SPF-A) Deptt., dt:15-11-1975 as revised in G.O.Ms.No.8, cited 6th above, to the D.G. and I.G. of Police, Hyderabad, who in turn may clarify the same to the S.Ps for due rectification of the recruitments made, if any, adopting the erroneous method, as it happened in the case of recruitment made by the S.P., Karimnagar.Dist.

9 The action taken in this regard may kindly be intimated to this Commission, at the earliest.

The Petitioners and the Dy. Engineer – in – Chief (Administration) appeared for the Hearing.

Heard the Petitioners and the official version. The matter pertains to the claim of certain Engineers of the Irrigation Department regarding the violations in the implementation of the Presidential Order in the “Allotments” made to various Zones. The violations are represented to have happened in the following manner:-

1) Wrong allotments made after 18-10-75 that are to be rectified.
2) Repatriation of non – zonal persons working in zone V and VI.
3) Imbalances in direct recruitment procedure (to be rectified) through APPSC.

The Dy. ENC. (Admn.) quoting the report already submitted by ENC (Admn.) gave the following explanation item – wise regarding the grievances:-

ITEM – 1 :- WRONG ALLOTMENTS MADE AFTER 18-10-75 THAT ARE TO BE
RECTIFIED.

Consequent on promolgamation of Presidential Order Government have constituted a Committee in G.O. Ms.No:784, General Administration ( SPF-A) Department, dt: 24-11-75 for allotment of Zones to the employees, both Gazetted and Non – Gazetted and Technical / Non – Technical, who were in service as on 18-10-75. The Committee issued allotment orders based upon the guidelines contained in Paragraph 4 of Presidential Order.

Subsequently, certain service Associations have contested against the zonal allotment made by the Government in Zone – V & VI and requested to re-allot them to their native zones. Later certain Assistant Executive Engineers of Zone – V & VI have also filed O.As against zonal allotments of certain Assistant Executive Engineers in Hon’ble A.P. Administrative Tribunal for their re – allotment to their native zones from Zone – V. The OAs are still pending in the Hon’ble A.P. A.T.

In another OA, in the meanwhile, the A.P. Administrative Tribunal pronounced its judgement dt: 09-11-2000 directing – - – -

“to finalise the seniority list after inclusion of the applicants and others
of Zone – V in the respective place and if necessary by placing them in
place of other non – zonal candidates who are illegally allotted to Zone
V and take effective steps for repatriation of the Officers of other
zones to their respective zones”.

Aggrieved by the above judgement the respondents of the O.A. filed W.Ps in Andhra Pradesh High Court and Andhra Pradesh High Court ordered “ Status quo as on that day to be maintained”.

Necessary appeal petitions are being filed by the Govt. on these W.Ps.

ITEM – 2 :- REPATRIATION OF NON – ZONAL PERSONS WORKING IN ZONE
– V AND VI.

The Non – Zonals who were working in Zone – V and VI after 18-10-75 have been identified and they have been repatriated to their native zones as mentioned below:

(1) Out of the 1292 employees, 574 who were recruited after 18-10-75 in different categories were repatriated to their native zones and accommodated against clear vacancies.
(2) In respect of remaining 718 employees proposals were sent to Government for creation of supernumerary posts for accommodating these employees in their respective zones. Accordingly, 718 supernumerary posts were created in G.O.Ms.No: 462, Irrigation & CAD (Ser.I) Department, Dt:13-10-86 for their repatriation to other zones.
(3) However in the allotments made by the Government, it was observed that 102 members, who were appointed prior to 18-10-75, were allotted to Zone – V & VI in violation of the Presidential Order.

ITEM – 3:- IMBALANCES IN DIRECT RECRUITMENT PROCEDURE (TO BE
RECTIFIED) THROUGH ANDHRA PRADESH PUBLIC SERVICE
COMMISSION.

The Dy. ENC (Admn.) averred that a policy decision has to be taken at Government level in consultation with General Administration Department (SPF)

The Representative of the association pleaded that a detailed report has been submitted by the Engineer – in – Chief in his letter Dated: 7-12-95 identifying 102 persons who have been allotted to zone V and VI in violation of the Presidential Order duly explaining the violation for each person and the Government took no action. He added, however, that subsequently the Engineer-in-Chief in his letter dated: 9-9-96 have informed the Government that the repatriation of the above personnel may be kept in abeyance in view of the Court Cases pending in the Honorable APAT. Hence, the Representative of the Association asserted that the action of the Engineer-in-Chief in addressing the Govt. to “keep in abeyance” is not correct as there was no stay on the implementation of the G.O.Ms.No:610, dt: 30-12-1985 and it only caused injustice to the legitimate interests of the employees of zone V and VI.

On hearing both the sides it is observed that the case pertains to the 102 J.Es. and Dy. E.Es. who have allegedly been allotted to Zones V and VI in violation of Presidential Order. The Engineer-in-Chief sent a proposal to the Government on 7-12-95 for the repatriation of these 102 officers to their respective local cadres in the zones other than V and VI. Before Government could take any action on these proposals, the Engineer-in-Chief requested the Government to keep these proposals of 7-12-95 in abeyance vide his letter dated: 9-9-96 on the ground that certain cases were pending in the APAT. In this regard, he particularly referred to the judgement of APAT in O.A. 6116/93 dated: 15-6-95 in respect of AEEs. In para 13 of the Judgement, the APAT had said that any attempt for either fresh allotment or change of allotment would further complicate the controversies.

According to the Engineers Association, the issue in this O.A. was not connected with the proposal of repatriation and the observation in para 13 of the judgement is in the nature of an “obiter dictum” not an order with regard to the repatriation. Further they informed that even on the main issue which is unconnected with the repatriation, the Judgement itself was set aside by the Hon’ble Supreme Court and remitted back to the APAT which disposed off the mater in its OA No: 3719/1996, dt:9-11-1996. This Judgement of the APAT was taken to the High Court in appeal. The High Court set aside the main issue viz., that of upgradation and weightage etc. and the “obiter dictum” of para 13 mentioned above was not an issue before the High Court. Thus, they contend that the Engineer – in – Chief’s request for keeping his original proposal of repatriation in abeyance is based on totally irrelevant and wrong premise.

In the view of the Association it is clear what the “status quo” in this connection means, even with regard to the 102 persons. It could mean that they should continue in the same posts and not necessarily in the same zone. However, it clearly means that they cannot be promoted until the Writ Petitions are disposed of. But the authorities have promoted them, which is a misapplication of the “status quo” orders. In consequence, the Association submitted that the Petitioners of the W.Ps are working & some retired as SEs and the Respondents got promotions and are continuing in higher posts.

The Dy. ENC. submitted that in a further report of the ENC (Admn.) necessary proposals were sent to Government together with service particulars and remarks against each name for taking necessary action with regard to 102 AEEs / Dy.E.Es. who were allotted to zones V & VI by the Government as recommended by the “Allotment Committee” Constituted under para 4 and sub para 2 (a) to (e) of the Presidential Order. As against 102 employees, 98 were already retired from service and only 4 are in service.

On this peculiar situation the Government in Memo.No:37608/Ser.IV.1/
93-7, dt:27-11-96, has informed that the GAD has opined as follows:-

I) G.O.Ms.No:610, G.A.(SPF) Dept., dt:30-12-85 did not superseded G.O.Ms.No:519, G.A.(SPF.A) Dept., Dt:18-11-85.

II) As per G.O.Ms.No:519, GA(SPF) Dept., dt:18-11-85 the initial allotment and organisation of local cadre should not be re-opened. However, action will be taken as per the outcome of pending O.As. in APAT.

Hence the ENC (Admn.) concluded that out of 102 persons recruited prior to 18-10-1975, 98 persons were already retired from service and only 4 persons are in service and working as Superintending Engineers and Engineer-in-Chief which are state wide posts and hence no need for repatriation. Moreover, there are no Govt., orders to take action on those appointed prior to 18-10-75; neither the G.O.Ms.No: 610 is specific on this issue.

In the final analysis it is seen that in this case the action as per the clause 3 (a) of the G.O.Ms.No:610, G.A.(SPF-A) Dept., dt:30-12-85. viz…

(3) (a) In respect of appeals filed against orders of allotment made
under paragraph 4 of the Presidential Order of 1975 to the
competent authority in time and where such appeals are
still pending disposal, all such cases where details are
furnished by the T.N.G.Os union or individuals, shall be
disposed of by 31-3-1986.

has not been completed and the appeal in this regard is to be deemed as still pending. Unless the Appeals are finalized by the Government through an “Allotment Committee” Constituted as per the Presidential Order these initial allotments, which got locked up in litigation, shall not become final as clarified in the U.O.Note No:1933/SPF.A/78-1, G.A.(SPF.A) Dept., dt:26-9-78. Ipsofacto the orders issued in the G.O.Ms.No:519, G.A. (SPF.A) Dept., dt:18-11-1985 do not apply to this issue. Hence the Government, now, has to act on the report sent by the ENC (Admn) I & CAD Dept., get the matter deliberated by the Allotment Committee Constituted under the G.O.Ms.No:124, G.A.(SPF.A) Dept., dated 7-3-92 and issue a Speaking Order, bringing a finality to the issue.
However it is also clarified that all other bilateral cases do not come in the way of such a disposal since this disposal is on the basis of the petitions pending before the “Allotment Committee” since years and hence deserves a quick disposal, to uphold the solemn pledge given to the employees in the G.O.Ms.No: 610.
Government in Irrigation & Command Area Development Dept., is requested to kindly take action accordingly.

Sub:- OMC (SPF) – Sericulture Department – Representation of Sri. B.P. Chandra Sekhar, Farm Foreman, O/o. Asst. Director of Sericulture, Utnoor, Adilabad Dist., – Request for transfer to his native Dist., i.e., Medak Dist. – Proceedings on the Representation – Issued.

* * *

Sri. B.P. Chandra Sekhar, Farm Foremen, O/o. Asst. Director of Sericulture, Utnoor, Adilabad Dist., has submitted a representation to OMC (SPF) stating that he belongs to Medak Dist., and that the Dist. Employment Exchange, Medak sponsored his name for the post of Farm Foreman in Sericulture Department during the year 1982-83 and he was selected for six months training at CSR & TI, Mysore, vide Memo. Rc. No: 3125/B-1-82, Dated: 20-07-82 of Director of Sericulture. After completion of his training he was appointed as Farm Foreman at Utnoor, Adilabad Dist., and working there since his appointment. He contended that he was sponsored by Dist. Employment Exchange, Medak Dist., but was posted to Adilabad Dist., instead of in Medak Dist., in contravention of the Presidential Order and hence requested to post him in his native District i.e., Medak Dist.

The Commissioner of Sericulture, who was consulted in the matter, has reported that the individual was sponsored through the Dist. Employment Exchange, Medak for (6) Months short term training at Mysore, commencing from 1-10-1982, and no appointment order against any post was given. The Department has not also given any commitment for appointment to a particular post in the Dist., and that the individual was appointed as Farm Foreman in Adilabad Dist., in his office Proc.Rc.No:1440/84/B2, Dt:27-04-1984 by shifting a post sanctioned in some other Dist., to implement some new schemes sanctioned by the Govt., in Telengana area, without supporting staff, and that the orders given by the Deptt., was accepted by the individual who joined in the Department willingly.

He has further reported that now the individual has given willingness to work as Panchayat Secretary in Medak Dist., and the Dist. Collector. Medak, was prepared to accept the services of Sri. B.P. Chandrasekhar, Farm Foremen as Panchayat Secretary in Medak Dist., provided the transfer of the individual from Adilabad Dist., to Medak Dist., was accorded by Govt. As such, the proposal for transfer of Sri. B.P. Chandra Sekhar was sent to Govt., by the Commissioner of Sericulture in the prescribed proforma for consideration in the existing vacancy of Panchayat Secretary available in the Medak Dist., The proposal is still pending with the Govt.
Having heard the petitioner and the version of the Department it was found that the initial mistake was that in making the selection for training, the department should have kept in view the number of vacancies in each District, because, the trained candidates were ultimately to be appointed in to those vacancies. The merit list should have been district – wise and postings should also have been on the basis of “Local candidates for local cadre”. It is not even very certain whether candidates were called for from the different District Employment Exchanges where Sericulture units were located. If they did call for from different Districts then the appropriate thing would have been to select for training, district-wise. However, whatever has happened is now ‘fait accompli’ a case of deviation from Presidential Order, intended or inadvertent, one can never know.

The Petitioner was posted not in the free merit quota where non – local can also figure, but in total violation of the Presidential Order, which was ignored and no locals were selected, trained or posted. However, at this juncture the Petitioner working in Adilabad Dist., cannot be ordered to be allotted back to Medak Dist., even if he takes last rank in seniority at this distance of time, nor the creation of a supernumerary post can be recommended. However, since the Collector, Medak Dist., has accepted to utilise the services of the Petitioner as Panchayat Secretary in Medak District it would be appropriate for the Govt., in the given circumstances, to approve his transfer from Adilabad Dist., to Medak Dist., for his appointment as Panchayat Secretary in one of the existing vacancies, since his appointment in Adilabad Dist., was in violation of the

Presidential Order; The Govt., in Agrl. & Coop. (Sericulture) Department may issue immediate orders in this regard to redress the grievance of the petitioner. Since this case is likely to go into the Commission’s Report in the category of “appointments in violation of Presidential Order”, the matter be expedited.

Proceedings No.6/49/OMC/A2/I&PR/2001, Dt.19-02-2003

Sub:- Information and Public Relations Department Furnishing of report on the representation made by Sri Ch. Seetharam Reddy, Divisional Public Relations Officer, Medak – Regarding filling up of all the vacancies with persons of Directorate – Regarding.

Ref:- 1. Representation received from Sri Ch. Seetharam Reddy, Divisional Public Relations Officer, Medak District.
2. OMC Letter No.6/OMC (SPF)/2001, Dt.05-03-2002.
3. From the Secy. to Govt. (poll)Lr.No.39212/I&PR/A3/01-5,
Dated 22-07-2002.

* * *

With reference to the correspondence cited, the matter has been examined. Representation of Sri Ch. Seetharam Reddy, Divisional Public Relations Officer, Medak District has the following points to make: -
(a) Sri Ch. Seetharam Reddy was appointed as Assistant Public Relations Officer in the year 1985 along with one Sri Mattaiah.

(b) The both become eligible for promotion to the next post by 1989, duly passing necessary Departmental Tests.

(c) Sri Mattaiah was promoted as Divisional P.R.O. in 1989.

(d) Sri Ch. Seetharam Reddy, was not promoted, along with Sri Mattaiah in 1989 inspite of the vacant posts available for the sole reason that certain personnel, Sri Sadanandham and Sri Bhanumurthy, from the Office of the Director of Information Public Relations were promoted and posted to Zone VI, Medak District.

(e) In consequence the Petitioner Sri Ch. Seetharam Reddy was deprived of his promotion till 1991.

The Department in its report stated that “there is a provision in the Rules for promoting and posting candidates from the feeder channel of the Head of the Department to Zones other than the ones to which the persons will be local” is not tenable in view of the following position as envisaged in the Presidential Order: -

The basis of the postings on promotion from the HOD Offices, to different zones is based on Executive Instructions. Presidential Order contemplates such postings only if a “provision” is made in the special or Adhoc Rules applicable to the concerned post. In Para 10(a) of the Instructions in GOP No.728 G.A. (SPF) Department, Dt.01-11-1975 the word “provision” in the main Para has to be interpreted as provision in the “Rules” not “executive instructions”. If there is no such Rule, the posting of candidates on promotion from HOD feeder channel to zones other than the ones to which the person would be local, ought to be not in accordance with the Presidential Order.

The Adhoc-Rules issued for the post of the Divisional Public Relations Officer vide G.O.Ms.No.455, G.A. (I &PR) Department, Dt.25-07-1990 do not have any “provision” as envisaged in Para 10(a) of the GOP No.728, G.A.(SPF) Department, Dt. 01-01-1975.

In the circumstances, the Representation of Sri Ch. Seetharam Reddy, Divisional Public Relations Officer, Medak is found to be based on a genuine grievance and his contention, that the personnel from the feeder categories, working in the Office of the Director of I & PR can not be considered for promotion and allotment to Zone VI as Divisional Public Relations Officers, appears to be valied as per the Presidential Order.

Hence this Commission holds that Sri Ch. Seetharam Reddy shall be considered for promotion to the post of Divisional Public Relations Officer with effect from the year 1989, as per his original seniority in Zone VI, as was done in the case of Sri A. Mattaiah. With regard to Sri Sadanandham and Sri Bhanumurty, since the Adhoc Rules provide for their Promotion as Divisional Public Relations Officers in the 10th vacancy of the promotion cycle, their dates of promotion be reviewed with reference to their respective seniority and they may be given postings to their respective “native zones” as per their seniority in the Department. The Secretary (Poll) G.A.(I & PR) Department may take necessary action in this regard.

Action taken in this regard may please be intimated to this Commission at the earliest, since this case may have to be included in the “final report” of the Commission under the “promotions given in violation of the Presidential order” category.

With reference to your representation 1st cited, I am to inform you that your representation on the violation of G.O.Ms.No.610 in the Nizamabad District has been examined in detail and the data available since 1993 onwards did not show anything from which one could infer that non-locals were recruited as Teachers in violation of Presidential Order, in the Nizamabad District.

Sri U. Sarveswara Rao, Maistry Grade-II, and Sri K. Ramesh Babu, Maistry Grade-II, Machilipatnam Port, Krishna District have represented to OMC (SPF) stating that they were appointed as Maistries Grade-II in Kakinada Port, East Godavari District vide Proc. No. 706/B.1/98, Dt.02-05-1998. The Director of Ports, Kakinada transferred them to Machilipatnam Port in to the existing vacancies, even though their posts belong to district Cadre. Their juniors were retained in Kakinada port in their places; and, therefore, requested the OMC to transfer them back to Kakinada port.

2. The Director of Ports, in his remarks reported that 13 posts of Maistries Grade-II were directly recruited through the local Employment exchange of East Godavari District while the Fishing Harbour was being built at Kakinada Port. Later on, after the completion of the work, 5 posts of Maistries Grade-II were abolished and the remaining posts were being utilized at the Kakinada port itself in the existing vacancies of the posts carrying the same pay scale and grade like the Signalers, Morse Code Operators etc., with those persons having that knowledge. However, the Director added that on humanitarian grounds, to avoid their ousting, the rest of the personal were transferred to Machilipatnam port into the existing vacancies of Mazdoors, on their own scale of pay.

3. The OMC heard the Petitioner Sri U. Sarveswara Rao and the P.A to the Director of Ports in the hearing held on 16/07/2002 and observed that transfer of personnel working in one district cadre posts to another district cadre without the Government permission amounts to violation of Presidential Order. The transfers made in the instant case besides being voilative of Presidential Order for the District Cadres of the East Godavari District also deprive the Local candidates of Krishna District of their employment chances.

4. In view of the above, and in view of the circumstances reported by the Department the Director of Ports is advised to take immediate approval of the Government to regularize those transfers with retrospective effect as per the Instructions issued on the Presidential Order from time to time, while obtaining due condonation and exemptions.

5. The Department is also advised to submit self explanatory proposals, for inclusion of such posts which cannot be easily subjected to local cadres under GSR 529(E) to the Government in T.R. & B Department for taking up with G.A (SPF) Department for obtaining concurrence of Government of India as it would be better than the violation of Presidential Order under the exigencies of the type of transfers mentioned by the Department as in the instant case. The action taken in this regard may be intimated to this Commission at the earliest.

* * *

Sri G.Narasa Reddy, Industrial Promotion Officer, District Industries Centre, R.R. Dist., has submitted a representation to OMC, stating that he was appointed as Extension Officer (Industries) (now Industrial Promotion Officer) on 5-1-1976 and was posted to Adilabad District in zone V. His services were regularised in the category of Extension Officer (Ind.) w.e.f. 05-01-1976, and his probation was declared vide Proc.No.A/1635/79, dt.05-3-1981. As he belonged to Nizamabad District, he represented for his re-allotment to zone VI, but his appeal was rejected vide G.O.Ms.No.355, dt.01-05-1978 of Industries Department. Subsequently on his representation the Director of Industries granted him transfer to zone VI on mutual basis vide his proceedings No.753/DSK 22-c2/83, dt.22-04-1983 as per para 5 (2) (d) of the Presidential Order.

He has further submitted, that in the provisional seniority list of Extension Officer of zone VI issued vide Memo 1133/DSK/22/c1/93, dt.5-8-93, he was assigned the seniority at Sl.No.34 in zone VI and he has submitted further representation to the Commissioner of Industries to fix his seniority in the cadre of Industrial Promotion Officer (Extension Officer, (Industries) taking into account the date of his first appointment in zone V i.e., from 5-1-1976, to enable him to get promotion as Asst. Director of Industries. But, the same was rejected by the Commissioner of Industries. He made another representation to government for fixing his seniority and the Government also rejected his representation.

Aggrieved by the above orders, he filed O.A.No.721/1995 in A.P.A.T. and the said OA was disposed off on 6-7-1999 with a direction to the respondents to reconsider the objections of the Applicant while finalising the seniority list in his cadre and after seniority list is finalised, promotion of the applicant be reviewed. The Commissioner of Industries examined the issue accordingly and rejected the claim of the Applicant for reviewing the seniority in the cadre of Extension Officer (Industries) with reference to the date of his first appointment in zone-V.

Sri Narasa Reddy again filed another O.A. No.7568/99 for restoration of his seniority in the APAT and the OA was dismissed on the ground that “his request doesn’t merit consideration”.

Sri G.Narasa Reddy, Industrial Promotion Officer has now requested the OMC (SPF) to restore his seniority from the date of his first appointment in zone V from 5-1-1976 instead of 26-5-1983 i.e., the date of his transfer to zone VI, on mutual transfer basis.

With reference to his Representation, Sri G.Narasa Reddy is informed that the matter has already been considered and rejected by the Hon’ble A.P. Administrative Tribunal. Hence the OMC cannot entertain the petition on the same issue.

The petition is therefore rejected.

Proceedings No.11/OMC/A2/WRL-6/2001, dt.24-03-2003.

Sub: OMC (SPF) – Coop. Department Repn. of the Telangana Coop. N.G.O’s Association, Warangal Dist., Unit – Regarding excess allotment of Non-Locals as Coop. Junior Inspectors during 1992-93 in Zone-V – Proceedings of the Commission – Issued.

Ref: 1. Representation from the Telangana Coop. N.G.O.’s Association, Warangal District dt.31-7-2001.
2. From the Registrar of Coop. Societies, Hyderabad Lr.Rc.No.39275/00 E4, dt:20-11-2001.
3. From the A.P.P.S.C. Lr.No.654/RS.18/02, dt:07-05-2002.

* * *

The Telangana Coop.N.G.O’s Association, Warangal District Unit has submitted a representation to One Man Commission, stating that (42) Junior Inspectors of Coop. Societies have been recruited directly in the year 1992-93 by the Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission and were allotted to Zone-V, of these, (12) Junior Inspectors were allotted in excess in Zone-V, violating Six Point Formula and therefore requested the One Man Commission to set right the anomaly by transferring the services of those non-local employees to their respective zones.

The Registrar of Coop. Societies, Hyderabad in his remarks, stated that the A.P.P.S.C., Hyderabad in the year 1993 allotted (42) candidates for the post of Junior Inspectors in Zone-V and that the said candidates were appointed and deputed for training for one year and on completion of training, they were allotted to zone-V for regular postings. The details of the allotment in zone-V by the A.P.P.S.C., are as follows:-

No. of Candidates allotted to the Coop. Dept., in 1993 Out of which candidates joined in Coop. Dept., Local candidates who joined in the Dept., Non-Local candidates who joined in the Dept. Percentage of Non-Locals joined
42 41 29 12 28.57%

The Registrar of Coop. Societies concluded that the contention of the Association in the matter is not correct, because as per para 8(2) (a) of A.P. Public Employment (Organisation of local cadres and Regulation of Direct recruitment) Order, 1975, which pertains to N.G.O. posts other than the L.D.C. Posts, 70% of posts are to be filled by direct recruitment with local candidates. As per allotment made by the APPSC (12) candidates were allotted under non-local and the percentage worked out to 28.57%. Hence, there is no excess allotment of non-locals in Zone-V in the cadre of Junior Inspectors by the A.P.P.S.C., as contended by the Association. The stand taken by the Registrar of Coop. Societies, with reference to the 30% vacancies was not, however, found correct by the One Man Commission.

Hence, the One Man Commission consulted the Secretary, A.P.P.S.C., and the Secretary, APPSC., reported, that the Commission always observed, in all its selections, the various provisions contained in Andhra Pradesh Public Employment (Organisation local cadres and regulation of direct recruitment) order 1975, and that in this case also, the percentage reserved for locals (viz., 70% in this case) was strictly adhered to. The rest of the 30% of vacancies, which were not reserved, were filled in by candidates strictly based on the merit regardless of local, non-local status as contemplated in the Presidential Order, as 28.57% non-locals are within this 30% of merit list.

Under the circumstances reported supra, the Commission sees no violation of Presidential Order in the allotment of candidates to the post of Coop. Junior Inspectors in Zone-V during the year 1992 – 93.

Sub: OMC – SPF – Services Welfare – Mohd. Shoukat Hussain, Deputy Tahasildar (CS), Ananthapur District – Request for posting to Hyderabad – Reg.,

Ref: 1. Representation of Mohd. Shoukat Hussain, DeputyTahasildar (CS), Ananthapur District, dt.31-8-01.

* * *

Mohd. Shoukat Hussain in his representation 1st cited, represented to the One Man Commission for his posting to Hyderabad City since he belonged to the City Cadre having been appointed in a State Level Institution – the Office of the Chief Rationing Office, Hyderabad. The One Man Commission examined the issue in consultation with the Commissioner of Civil Supplies.

2. The Chief Rationing Office, Hyderabad was notified by the Central Govt. Vide GSR 526(E), dt.18/10/75 as “Special Office or Establishment” under Presidential Order 1975 and kept outside the purview of the Presidential Order.

3. The Commissioner has reported that the transfer was affected to Ananthapur on purely administrative grounds in view of certain corruption charges against the Petitioner on 04/04/2000, based on the report of concerned authorities, as the Presidential Order is not applicable to Deputy Tahasildar posts in the Civil Supplies Department since most of them are taken on deputation from Revenue Department state wide seniority is being maintained and hence concluded that there was no violation of Presidential Order in the transfer of the Petitioner to Ananthapur District.

4. The matter has been examined by the One Man Commission. Para 10(b) of GO.P No.728, GA(SPF-A) Department, dt.01-11-75 lays down that for the transfer of a person from a Local Cadre comprising posts in any Office or establishment exercising territorial jurisdiction over a part of the State or any other Local Cadre comprising posts in such part or “vice versa” a provision in the Service Rules is to be made. In the absence of such a provision such transfer amounts to the Violation of Presidential Order.

5. The transfer in the instant case would have been valid had Rules of the Department provided for it. The Commissioner is therefore advised to make a provision for such transfers in the Rules to meet contingencies like this. Since this transfer is reported to be on account of serious charges levelled against the Petitioner, the obvious course of action is suspension. Transfer is not a substitute for suspension particularly if it is to be effected in contravention of the Presidential Order.

6. Commissioner is advised to transfer the petitioner back to the City Rationing Office and consider the obviously proper course of action, viz., suspension, if he is so advised.

7. The Petition is disposed off accordingly.

Shaik Abdul Subhan, Jr. Asst., District Employment Exchange, Mahaboobnagar represented to the One Man Commission that inspite of clear proof of his being a local candidate of Hyderabad City and even though there were clear vacancies in existence in twin cities at the time of his appointment, on Compassionate grounds, he was allotted to Mahaboobnagar District. Sri Subhan therefore, requested for allotment to Hyderabad District and to post him in any of the I.T.Is or Employment Exchanges against the existing clear vacancies of Jr. Assistants.

Many a representation by the Employees Unions / Associations have been received by this Commission regarding the “non-locals” being appointed, in various Districts, on compassionate grounds – normally taking into consideration the placement of the deceased employees at the time of his death.

In this regard I have already submitted my views to the Government that while making “compassionate appointments” the Departments shall follow Para 6 of the Presidential Order (G.O.Ms.No.674, GA(SPF.A) Dept. dated 20/10/1975) since the “compassionate appointment” is also an appointment like direct recruitment to a post.

Therefore the request of Sri Shaik Abdul Subhan may be considered to accommodate him in a vacancy in the local cadre of Hyderabad District which he belongs after verifying his local status with reference to relevant educational certificates etc.

This Commissions letter, 3rd cited, issued earlier be treated as cancelled.

Sub: OMC (SPF) – Representation of Sri K.Lakshma Reddy, Gr.I, PD regarding the Irregular transfer and promotion of Sri K. Raja Sekhar, Assistant Physical Director, Govt., Degree College, Anantapur (zone-IV) to Nalgonda (zone-VI) – Regarding.

Ref: 1. Representations from Sri K. Laxma Reddy, Gr.I P.D, Govt., College of Physical Education, Domalguda, Hyderabad, Dt. 09-01-2002, 14-10-02 and 25.04.2003.

2. From the Director of Collegiate Education, Letters Rc.No. 1340/Admn.II-2/2001, Dt.14-02-03 and 28-03-03.

* * *

Sri K. Laxma Reddy, Physical Director, Government College of Physical Education, Hyderabad represented to this Commission regarding the irregular transfer and promotion of one Sri K.Rajasekhar, Assistant Physical Director from Zone-IV to Zone-VI Nalgonda District. Sri K.Rajasekhar is presently working as Physical Director in the Government Degree College, Armoor of Nizamabad District.
Sri K.Rajasekhar, Assistant Physical Director, Government Degree College, Anantapur had been appointed as a direct recruit through APPSC as Assistant Physical Director and was posted to Government Degree College, Anantapur (Zone-IV) on 16.09.1983, in the open quota. As a local of Zone-VI (Nalgonda), he had been representing to the Government for his transfer to Zone-VI as his wife was working as a Teacher there, as a “spouse” case. There were no posts of Assistant Physical Directors of Degree Colleges in Zone-VI. However, the Government in its Memo. No.1557/HE.II/86-5 Edn. Dept., dt:16.05.1987 issued orders transferring Sri K.Rajasekhar, Assistant Physical Director from Zone-IV to Zone-VI in the post of Physical Director in the Government Junior College, Halia, Nalgonda District into the existing vacancy, on his own scale of pay, with the stipulation that he should take last rank in the category of Physical Directors working in Government Junior Colleges in Zone-VI, citing the observations of the One Man Commission (1986) which had stated that the request for transfer should be complied with as and when the post of Assistant Physical Director is sanctioned in Zone-VI or in the alternative, the Department may consider the possibility of transferring him from the present post to an equivalent post in the Physical Education Branch in one of the Junior Colleges in Zone-VI provided such a case is feasible and that Sri K. Rajasekhar may be “adjusted” in Zone-VI as and when a post of Assistant Physical Director is created in Zone-VI. But till now no post of Assistant Physical Director has been created in Zone-VI.
In the proceedings Rc.No.2542/UGC-3/91, Dt.18-6-1993 Commissioner of Collegiate Education promoted Sri K. Rajasekhar as Physical Director of a Government Degree College when that vacancy arose in Zone-VI treating him as an Assistant Physical Director of a Degree College, the post that he had relinquished on transfer, a post that did not exist in Zone VI. He had no lien to that post in Zone IV and was in the post of Physical Director of Government Junior College in Zone-VI in the seniority list far below the Petitioner. Sri K. Rajashekhar was picked up and given promotion wrongly and irregularly on a wrong premise. Not only that, on this baseless premise, he was placed above all the persons in the seniority list of Physical Directors of Junior Colleges of Zone VI, reversing the Government Order in Memo No.1557/HE-2/86-5, Education (HE) Department dt.16-05-1987 in which Sri K. Rajashekhar was transferred and placed at the bottom of this list. The Commissioner of Collegiate Education has gone far beyond his competence on a wrong premise and reversed orders of the Government. Had that gross irregular order not been passed by the Commissioner of Collegiate Education the promotion from Zone – VI would have gone to a person from the list of Physical Directors of Junior Colleges who were working in the Zone-VI. In that list Sri K.Rajasekhar stood in the last rank. This deprived the first person in the seniority list, at that time viz., the Petitioner Sri K.Lakshma Reddy, of his due promotion to the post to which Sri K. Rajashekhar was irregularly and wrongly promoted.
The Director of Collegiate Education, who had been requested for remarks, stated that no irregularity was committed in giving promotion to Sri K.Rajasekhar quoting the Government Orders in G.O.Rt.No.1996, Education (CE.I) Dept., dt:31.12.1990 wherein the Government have issued orders for recruitment to the post of Physical Director in Government Degree Colleges from the posts of Physical Directors of Junior Colleges and High Schools, only after exhausting the Assistant Physical Directors of Degree Colleges. The G.O. does not justify the promotion but brings out the irregularity since Sri K. Rajasekhar was not holding the post of Assistant Physical Director of Degree College or a lien on such a post.
In G.O.Ms.No.1196 Education (B) Dept., dt:27.12.1977 the rules provide for the promotion of Physical Directors of Degree Colleges from the category of Assistant Physical Directors of Degree Colleges and in case if no suitable and qualified candidate is available in that cadre, from the category of Physical Directors of Junior Colleges and High Schools. As per these Rules the promotion to Sri K. Rajasekhar was irregular and wrong. It was due only to the senior most Physical Director of Junior College, viz., the Petitioner.
Hearing was held on 25.04.2003 with Department of Collegiate Education / Secretariat Department and both the parties.
G.O.Ms.No.136 Education Department, dt: 06.04.1995 which Sri K.Rajasekhar has quoted in his favour does not pertain to this case since the G.O. was issued in 1995 with prospective effect only and he got promotion prior to that date on 18.06.1993. Its retrospective effect does not change anything.
As already stated above, Sri K. Rajasekhar had no lien on the post of Assistant Physical Director of Degree College in Zone–IV after his transfer to Zone-VI. Lien is the inherent part of only a deputation not of a transfer.
As Sri K. Rajasekhar is far below in seniority in the list of Physical Directors of Junior Colleges in Zone-VI, the only category to which he belongs, his promotion has been irregular and invalid.
Hence, the Commission holds that the date on which Sri K.Rajasekhar was promoted, the Petitioner Sri K. Lakshama Reddy has a right to be promoted. Government is requested to take action accordingly and give the Petitioner promotion accordingly with all the consequential benefits in terms of seniority in the promoted category, monetary benefits etc. Sri K. Rajasekhar, should revert to his original position in the seniority list of Physical Directors of Junior Colleges in Zone-VI. However, it is left to the Government to take a compassionate view as he has actually discharged duties of the higher post and create supernumerary post for him in which he can continue till his turn comes for regular promotion as per seniority in the category of Physical Directors of Junior Colleges in Zone-VI.

The President, Telangana Rastra Samithi in his petition 1st read above has stated that as per G.O.610, dt.30.12.1985 other than zone VI people should not be transferred to the vacancies in zone VI. The Division No.4, Special Designs Circle, Hyderabad belongs to zone VI. Sri N.V Ramana Raju, who was appointed under displaced quota in zone III (Nellore Dist.,) during 1985, was transferred as Office Superintendent to zone VI within 10 years of his service. He was appointed as Maistry in work charged Establishment and has also got promotion illegally against zone VI vacancy, when there are clear cut orders by the Government for rectification of violations in zone V and VI under SPF, and hence, requested to cancel the allegedly illegal orders issued to Sri N.V. Ramana Raju, Superintendent, O/o Superintendent Engineer, Special Designs Circle, Hyderabad and also to repatriate him to his native zone III and provide an opportunity to Telangana Employees for promotion as Superintendent.

The Engineer-in-Chief (Admin. Wing) I & CAD Department among other things has stated that Sri N.V.Ramana Raju, was appointed as Junior Assistant by the S.E., T.G.P circle, Cuddapah vide Proc. No.270/M, dt 24.02.1989 and he reported for duty on 25.02.1989 (F.N). Later he was promoted as Senior Assistant on ad hoc basis and posted to T.G.P Circle, Cuddapah, vide Proc.No.3/ECO/272M, dt 23.03.1991. The individual was transferred and posted to H.N.S.S Circle, Cuddapah from TGP circle Cuddapah on OD basis and he reported for duty on 30.08.1991. Subsequently he was promoted as Superintendent and reported for duty on 01.10.1993 (F.N) but subsequently reverted as Senior Assistant for want of vacancy and posted to H.N.S.S Circle, Madanapalle vide Proc. No. Camp.No.E, dt 23.12.1994. Later he reported as Superintendent in GNSS Circle Cuddapah on 13.01.1996 as per A.P.A.T orders in OA No.7331/94. The individual was transferred and posted to Special Designs Circle, Hyderabad on “OD basis” vide Proc No.AB/SE/EC2/E14/387M, dt 12.07.1997 against the existing vacancy of Designs Division No.4 and that his pay and allowances are being claimed in Designs Division No.4 since he was posted against the existing vacancy. The individual is working only on OD basis and his seniority is maintained in parent circle. The Superintendent Engineer vide his proceedings No.AB/SDC/ED2/515M, dt 29/07/2002, issued orders repatriating Sri N.V.Ramana Raju to his parent circle. But it is learnt that he has been on leave and has not joined in his parent circle.

The Commission has examined the case carefully and observes that OD is neither a transfer nor a deputation. It gives no locus standi. It is only a device for an ad hoc short term agreement, for a functional exigency. It should not affect a person’s service and position in any respect. OD only authorized a person to work in a post for a short specific period and purpose. His services belong to his original post. He has no right to seniority or promotion in a post where he works on OD. OD cannot be used as a camouflage for transfer. His promotion in the post where he is on ID is invalid. Hence, the said Sri N.V.Ramana Raju, should be sent back to his post in zone IV. In fact it is not a case of OD as such but a transfer camouflaged under the name of OD. This is evident from the fact that his pay and allowances are drawn in the post to which he is transferred, not in his original post. This is in clear contravention of the Presidential Order as well as State & Sub-Ordinate Service Rules.

The Commission holds that this individual and all the employees brought on “OD” device are brought to circumvent Presidential Order and should be sent back to their respective posts and the consequential vacancies should be filled in as per rules with local candidates with retrospective benefits to those deprived of promotion due to OD candidates occupying their promotional posts. They should be given retrospective seniority and monetary benefits etc., The persons on OD should go back to their original posts in their respective original seniorities in that post. The Commission also holds that no recovery need be made from them for the period of their irregularly holding a higher post on OD and the post may be treated as supernumerary in their original circle, to regularize the undue payment in higher post if he was not due for promotion in the original post. This will apply in all cases of such OD “transfers” which are held to be a device for circumvention of the Presidential Order. The ENC (Admin. Wing) is requested to submit particulars of such cases and compliance report to Government under intimation to this Commission.

*****
The case pertains to the petitions received from the following:
1. Sri M. Satyanarayana Reddy, presently Lecturer in Physical Education, Govt. Comprehensive College, Masab Tank;

2. Sri B. Seetha Ram Reddy, presently Physical Director, Grade-II, Govt. Junior College, Kachiguda; and

3. Sri N. J. Diwakar, presently Lecturer, Govt. College of Physical Education, Hyderabad.

They have all represented that injustice was done to them by giving wrongful and undue promotion to Sri K. Sanjeeva Rao, their colleague in the City Cadre (presently Inspector of Physical Education, Hyderabad) as Physical Director Grade II, Teachers Training Institute (TTI) Neredmet with effect from 17/11/1978. They claim promotions on par with him. Sri K. Sanjeeva Rao is the Respondent in all the three Petitions submitted by the aforesaid Petitioners.

Sri M. Satyanarayana Reddy (the 1st Petitioner herein) was appointed as Physical Education Teacher (PET) in Govt. Junior College, Aliya, in the “City of Hyderabad” on 28/09/1970 and Sri K. Sanjeeva Rao (the Respondent) was appointed as Physical Education Teacher in Sultan Shahi High School in the “City of Hyderabad” on 03/10/1970. Both acquired necessary qualification of a Degree in Physical Education (B.P.Ed.,) on 04/04/1977 and became eligible for promotion to the post of Physical Director (PD) Grade II.

Sri B. Seetha Ram Reddy (2nd Petitioner herein) was appointed as Physical Education Teacher on 15.12.1971 in the Government Junior College, Kacheguda in the “City of Hyderabad”. He acquired his B.P.Ed qualification on the same date viz., on 04.04.1977 as did Sri K. Sanjeeva Rao (Respondent). The Petitioner also submitted that as per the vacancy position given by the Director of School Education, during the years 1975 to 1990, 11 Physical Director Grade II posts were vacant in the City Cadre.

All the above three persons were first appointed in the City Cadre as per G.S.R.528(E) issued under para 3(6) of the Presidential Order, vide entry No.7 in the GSR, as Physical Education Teachers (PETs).

Sri N.J. Diwakar (3rd Petitioner herein) was appointed as a Secondary Grade Teacher in Sanga Reddy in Medak District Cadre (in Zone VI) on 17.07.1970. On acquiring necessary qualifications (D.P.Ed. & B.P.Ed.,) he got himself converted as Physical Education Teacher (PET) with effect from 16.08.1978 within Medak District (Zone-VI). His petition will be discussed at the end as the position regarding the promotion of Sri K. Sanjeeva Rao has first to be clearly discussed and defined.

The Respondent Sri K. Sanjeeva Rao who was working as Physical Education Teacher in Government High School, Sultan Shahi in the “City of Hyderabad” in the City Cadre, was transferred, on request, in Govt. Memo No.1370/B2/78-4, dt. 09/08/1978 in the same post to the LRM Govt. High School, Bolaram (in Machabolaram Panchayat area) which comes under the “City of Hyderabad”, and joined there on 31/08/1978. Thus this post is also in the City Cadre. Subsequently, in Joint Director of School Education, Hyderabad Proceedings Rc.No.64/V-1/75, dt.17/11/1978 Sri K. Sanjeeva Rao (Respondent) was promoted as Physical Director Grade II on 17/11/1978 and was posted to Teachers Training Institute, Neredmet (in Malkajgiri Panchayat area in the “City of Hyderabad” in the City Cadre), on the wrong premise that Bolaram was in Zone VI and also Neredmet was in Zone VI. In fact both were and continue to be in the City of Hyderabad and hence in City Cadre as per First Schedule under Para 2(1) (a) of Presidential Order. He was wrongly treated as belonging to Zone VI and got this wrongful advantage on a dual wrong premise that Bolaram and Neredmet were in Zone VI when they were actually in City of Hyderabad (City Cadre).

The Commission heard the Petitioners and the Respondent and the Officials of the Department on 22-1-2003.

It is found that the whole case is based on a grossly and patently wrong notion held by the Department that Bolaram of Machabolaram Panchayat area to which place Sri K. Sanjeeva Rao was transferred, was in Zone – VI, whereas it was and is actually in the “City of Hyderabad” under para 2 (1) (a) of the Presidential Order, First Schedule and was therefore the posts therein were and are in the City Cadre. On this wrong premise he was promoted to the higher post of Physical Director Gr.II. Again there was another wrong premise that was applied in his favour, viz., that Naredmet of Malkajgiri Panchayat area was in Zone VI whereas actually it was and is in “City of Hyderabad” as per First Schedule and hence the posts therein were and are in City Cadre. (See entries (g) & (i) in First Schedule to Presidential Order).

THE FIRST SCHEDULE

(See paragraph 2 (1) (a) City of Hyderabad)
(a) Hyderabad Municipal Corporation area:-
(i) Hyderabad Division.
(ii) Secunderabad Division.
(b) Secunderabad Cantonment area.
(c) Osmania University Campus.
(d) Zamistanpur Village.
(e) Fathenagar … Panchayat area.
(f) Bowenpalle … Panchayat area.
(g) Machabolaram … Panchayat area.
(h) Lalaguda Village … Village.
(i) Malkajgiri … Panchayat area.
(j) Uppal Khalsa … Panchayat area.
(k) Alwal … Panchayat area.
(l) Balanagar … Panchayat area.
(m) Musapet … Panchayat area.
(n) Kukatpalli … Panchayat area.

As per paragraph 3 (6) of the Presidential Order, at Sl. No. 7 of the GSR No. 528(E) dated 18/10/1975 “All Non-Gazetted categories and the specified gazetted categories other than Deputy Secretary (Education), Zilla Parishad” of the Education Department are notified as categories of posts for which separate Cadres have to be organized for the City of Hyderabad.

Thus the promotion of Sri K. Sanjeeva Rao (Respondent) who belonged to City Cadre being treated as a candidate of Zone VI, to a post actually of City Cadre but wrongly conceived to be in Zone VI, was ‘ab intio’ void.

After his ‘ab intio’ void promotion, Sri K. Sanjeeva Rao (Respondent) has got further promotions as PD Grade-I, Gazetted Lecturer in Physical Education and Inspector of Physical Education. Since the first promotion itself is ‘ab intio’ void, all the subsequent promotions are also ‘ab intio’ void.

In this view of the case, the Commission holds that Sri K. Sanjeeva Rao should be reverted to his original post as Physical Education Teacher (PET) with effect from 17th November 1978, the date of his first ‘ab intio’ void promotion as PD, Grade-II. The authorities may thereafter consider him in his original seniority as Physical Education Teacher (PET) in the City Cadre from that date and work out his promotion as PD, Grade-II according to the inter-se seniority of his other colleagues in the City Cadre. Thereafter from that position if there are any promotions due to him these may be considered on that basis only on the dates on which these may fall due. Meanwhile, he may be relieved of his presently held illegal post and kept on compulsory wait till his legitimate position as per this order is worked out.

In this context, therefore, the question of Sri M.Satyanarayana Reddy and Sri B.Seetha Ram Reddy, in the City Cadre getting promotions because Sri K.Sanjeeva Rao got promotion, that was actually ‘ab initio’ void, does not arise as Mr.K. Sanjeeva Rao himself has to be reverted back to his original position to status quo ante as of 17-11-1978, the date of his ‘ab initio’ void first promotion.

As far as the period for which the Respondent has enjoyed the ‘ab initio’ void promotions as Physical Director Grade-II and subsequent promotions, the government may either recover the amount from him or in a compassionate view of things create a supernumerary post for that period for which he held the posts illegally till the date of relief from this post and allow him to keep the amounts, while reverting him to his original position as Physical Education Teacher as of 17-11-1978.

Since it is a very patent case of wrongful action operating consistently in favour of a single individual, government may consider whether they would like to hold an enquiry to fix responsibility or allow the matter to rest there, after rectifying the wrong as held by the Commission hereinabove.

This wrong premise about the cadre to which the posts in the School Education Department in Bolaram and Neredmet belong, has also crept into the Govt.Memo.No.45079/Ser.II.2/97-21, dt.18-11-2001 issued by Education (Services-II) Department. In this Memo. also the Department treated Bolaram as part of Zone VI, whereas actually it is a part of “City of Hyderabad” and the posts therein are part of the City Cadre. Again the Memo. speaks of “Zone-VII” which does not exist in the Presidential Order, perhaps intending to refer to the City Cadre. However, in spite of these errors, the Government Memo. recognizes that the promotion of Sri K.Sanjeeva Rao was invalid and has ordered the Commissioner of School Education to review the promotion of Sri K.Sanjeeva Rao. Unfortunately, again, the misconception has entered into this Memo. and it says that the promotion should be reviewed in his “Zone of appointment i.e., Zone-VI”, which is a gross error because his Zone of appointment has been the City Cadre and he has never gone out of the City Cadre.

In G.O.Ms.No.1085, Education Department, dt.9.9.1981, the Government have ordered the transfer of 54 schools mentioned in the Annexure to the Order which are located in K.V.Ranga Reddy District including the Cantonment Schools from the control of District Education Officer, K,V. Ranga Reddy, Secunderabad to the control of District Education Officer, Hyderabad (Urban), consequent on the orders in G.O.Ms.No.1391, Revenue-U Department, dt.11.8.1978 declaring the Cantonment area in Secunderabad as part of Hyderabad District (Urban). This Government Order only changes the controlling authority in the administrative arrangement with regard to supervision of schools and has nothing to do with the position of various villages and areas mentioned in the Annexure to the Government Order. Bolaram was and continue to be in Machabolaram Panchayat area and Naredmet was and continue to be in Malkajgiri Panchayat area before this G.O. and after this G.O. Both these Panchayat areas were originally and continue to be in the First Schedule to the Presidential Order under para 2 (1) (a). Thus all the Institutions of Education Department therein were and continue to be in the City Cadre in terms of GSR 528(E) issued under para 3(6) of the Presidential Order. Hence this G.O. is irrelevant with regard to this case, and the position of these Institutions under the Presidential Order. In fact Government cannot change any place from one Cadre to another in the Presidential Order.
Sri N.J. Diwakar (3rd Petitioner herein) has claimed seniority in the post of Physical Director Grade II (first promotion post) over Sri K. Sanjeeva Rao in Zone VI. In the light of the findings hereinabove, Sri K. Sanjeeva Rao (Respondent) has no locus standi in Zone VI and his promotion was ‘ab initio’ void. Hence the plea of Sri N.J. Diwakar has no relevance.

Sri B. Seetha Ram Reddy (2nd Petitioner herein) approached Higher Education Department and sought promotion, as the posts of Physical Director Grade II were not being filled by the Director of School Education. But his efforts proved in vain since vacancies of Physical Director Grade II were filled by the Director of Higher Education transferring certain persons from other Zones. It is seen from the papers presented before the Commission that Secretary, School Education Department in his Memo. No.45079/Ser.2/97-8, Dt.14/07/2000, objected to this inter-local cadre transfer as it is only the power of the Government through C.S. and C.M. He asked Secretary, Higher Education to take action to cancel the transfer. But since this Memo. referred only to one case and that person died, no action was taken. But other similar cases seem to remain untouched. The officials of the Department of Intermediate Education and Collegiate Education who appeared before the Commission, however, claimed that those vacancies were direct recruitment vacancies and the candidates from other Zones were taken into those direct recruitment vacancies and hence no injustice was done to the promotees. This line of argument is untenable. As the Secretary, School Education pointed out, in the first place it is not within the powers of a Head of Department to effect inter-zonal transfers. The issue in this particular case is not merely of unauthorised transfer or of injustice to the 2nd Petitioner or promotees but of a clear violation of the Presidential Order to the detriment of the rights of local candidates of “City of Hyderabad” to the direct recruitment posts. The direct recruitment posts were not filled up due to Government ban. So Physical Director Grade II were brought in from other Zones to the City Cadre to fill up these direct recruitment vacancies. Such inter-cadre transfer is in contravention of the Presidential Order and has deprived the local candidates of the City of Hyderabad of their legitimate posts by direct recruitment.

However, in case the Government have permitted filling up of direct recruitment posts through promotions, these promotions should have gone to the Physical Education Teachers (PETs) of the City Cadre because the promotional line is from the Physical Education Teachers (PETs) of Junior Colleges and High Schools and there were enough qualified Physical Education Teachers (PETs) at least in the Attached High Schools (the figures of Physical Education Teachers available in the City Cadre in Junior Colleges are not available). Thus the alternative to direct recruitment i.e., promotion has also resulted in depriving the candidates of the City Cadre of their due promotions by inducting the Physical Directors Grade II from other Zones.

Hence, the Physical Directors Grade II brought from other Zones should be repatriated to their respective Zones where they may be fitted into their own inter-se seniorities in their original posts. The consequential vacancies should be filled up by direct recruitment with the prescribed reservation for locals, or by promotion from the eligible candidates of the City Cadre from Physical Education Teachers (PETs) of High Schools or Junior Colleges, as per Rules.

It is for information of the Government that Honourable A.P.A.T in its “interim orders” dated 04/02/2003 in OA No.754/2003 filed by Sri K. Sanjeeva Rao, directed that “pending disposal of the OA the Respondents may proceed with enquiry but no final orders be passed against the Applicant”. However in its order dated 30.04.2003 Hon’ble A.P.A.T while modifying the earlier interim orders directed that–
“It is clarified that One Man Commission can proceed with the enquiry and any report submitted by One Man Commission shall not be acted upon by the Government, until further orders from this Tribunal”.

In this O.A. from among the above mentioned Petitioners only 1st and 2nd Petitioners are Respondents (copy of the order is enclosed).

In conclusion the Commission holds that:-

1. The promotion of Sri K. Sanjeeva Rao on 17.11.1978 as Physical Director Grade-II was ‘ab initio’ void.

2. All the promotions of Sri K. Sanjeeva Rao right from Physical Director Grade-II up to the present position held by him have been ‘ab initio’ void.

3. Sri K. Sanjeeva Rao should be reverted to his original position as Physical Education Teacher (PET) as of 17.11.1978. Thereafter, according to his inter-se seniority with the other colleagues in the City Cadre, he may be considered for promotions as and when due. Meanwhile, he may be relieved of the presently illegally held post.

4. The contention of Sri M. Satyanarayana Reddy and Sri B. Seetha Ram Reddy that they should be given promotions on the basis of the promotion of Sri K. Sanjeeva Rao is untenable, as Sri K. Sanjeeva Rao’s promotion itself is held to be ‘ab initio’ void.

5. The G.O.Ms.No.1085, Education Department, dt.9.9.81 has no relevance with regard to the issues involved in this case under the Presidential Order.

6. The contention of Sri N.J. Diwakar becomes redundant in view of the fact that Sri K. Sanjeeva Rao has no ‘locus standi’ in Zone-VI.

7. The Physical Directors Grade II brought into the City Cadre on transfer by Director of Higher Education from other local cadres / zones to fill in the vacancies due to the ban on direct recruitment should be repatriated to their original local Cadres / Zones to take place in their due seniorities there in their original posts. The consequential vacancies should be filled in by direct recruitment with due reservation for locals, or by promotion from eligible candidates of the City Cadre, as the case may be, as per Rules.

8. In view of the Interim Orders of the Hon’ble A.P.A.T. in O.A.No.754/2003, the Commission has given its findings hereinabove. But the action on these findings may be taken by the Government only in the light of the Hon’ble A.P.A.T. Interim Order dt.30.04.2003 which has been cited hereinabove, or any subsequent orders of A.P.A.T.

Ref: Representation from Sri V.R. Surender Babu, Sr. Assistant O/o the Executive Engineer, Godavari Lift Irrigation Scheme, Hyderabad, Dt. 16/05/2003.

* * *

The matter pertains to the individual representation of Sri V.R. Surender Babu, Sr. Assistant O/o the Executive Engineer, Godavari Lift Irrigation Scheme, Hyderabad.

2 Sri V.R. Surender Babu, Sr. Assistant, O/o E.E., GLIS, Division.3, Hyderabad has started that he was appointed as Jr. Assistant on 23.03.1977 in Inter State Joint Project under administrative control of C.E, Inv., Hyderabad. The above division is located in zone VI and is a separate entity for all purpose for appointment, promotion, seniority etc. The above division was temporarily diverted and attached to P.I.C Warangal (Zone V) to look after the Technical work of the circle in the year 1980. Subsequently the division was again detached and attached to I.P.I circle, Warangal in the year 1984. Even the division is working under the control of S.E., the division is identified as a separate entity and it was under the administrative control of C.E., Inv., Hyderabad. In view of the above, the seniority of the division has to be maintained separately and the consequential vacancies arose should have to be filled in with the eligible staff of the division with the approved seniority list. As per the seniority list, in the category of Jr. Assistants of the Pochampad Investigation, Warangal, he stood at Sl.No.35.

3 The Petitioner has alleged that a vacancy of Superintendent post was arised in 1992, this vacancy should have been filled in with reference to the seniority list, but one Sri Madhusudan, who belongs to Pochampad Investigation Circle, Warangal (Zone V), where his seniority lien is being maintained is diverted to this division illegally and holding the Addl. Charge of Superintendent post though fully qualified person is available in the division, which is not correct according to rules and regulations. According to the seniority, he was fully qualified, bornist of the division and eligible for holding the post of Superintendent as such the above ineligible person may be repatriated to his original circle and he may be promoted as Superintendent as per rules and regulations.

4 It is seen from the copy of the letter No.ES/EC3/ENC/919/2002, dt 28/12/2002 of S.E, P.I.C, Warangal addressed to ENC (AW) stating that as per service particulars, Sri M. Madhusudhan belongs to Vennavaram village, Mahaboobabad Mandal, Warangal District of zone V and was promoted as Sr. Assistant and posted to this division on emergency and on OD basis. It shows that Sri M. Madhusudhan Sr. Asst. Warangal of zone V is working in zone VI vacancy of I.S.J.P Division, Hyderabad. Further the records show that the CE (inv.) Hyderabad vide proceedings No.H/13198/76, dt.04-05-1976, that the I.S.J.P Division Hyderabad with four sub-divisions will function as a separate unit for the purpose of recruitment. But the S.E.P.I Circle Warangal has given promotion to Sri M.Madhusudhan as Sr. Asst. and posted Sri M.Madhusudhan to Inter State Joint Project Division Hyderabad and he joined on 16/03/1981, but the services of Sri M.Madhusudhan Sr. Asst. have not been regularized in the cadre of Sr. Asst. in view of the Hon’ble A.P Lokayukta complaint No. 249/2001/B2, dt. 25/02/2002 and Hon’ble APAT OA No. 243/190 to 2433/90.

5 It is further seen from the said letter of S.E., P.I.C., that V.R.Surender Babu Sr. Asst. has been placed in full Addl. Charge of the post of Superintendent by the C.E (Inv.) Hyderabad, earlier vide proceedings H2(3)/247/99, dt. 20/11/99. It could not be materialized, in view of the Hon’ble A.P.A.T Hyderabad direction on OA 6953/1999 with V.M.A 544/99 and Sri M. Madhusudhan has continued as in charge superintendent and that as per the Tribunal direction the Addl. Charge arrangement of the post of superintendent could not be changed. But as per seniority list of Division office (zone VI) Sri V.R.Surender Babu is eligible candidate in zone VI.

6 During the meeting held on 24-06-2003 with the Engineers-in-Chief the representation of Sri V.R. Surendra Babu came for discussions with the Engineer-in-Chief (AW) I & CAD and he explained that the Inter State Joint Project is not a state level institution and hence the employees from the other zones cannot be transferred to it. However, since the Project, as a circle covers more than one zone the seniority of the whole of the circle has been considered in giving promotions to the cadre of Superintendents,

7 However it was clarified that the posts of Senior Assistant & Superintendents are Zonal Posts and the transfer/ promotions are to be restricted to in the particular zone only, even though a circle office crosses more than one zone. Further the seniority is to be considered within the zone for zonal cadre, District has a unit for District Cadres but not the Circle, which is an administrative unit, as envisaged in the Presidential Order. Amendment to the A.P. Ministerial Service Rules has also been brought out in this regard in the G.O.Ms.No.803/G.A(SER.B) Dept. dated 29.12.1980 and to A.P Last Grade Service Rules in the G.O.Ms.No.353 , G.A (SER.) Dept. dt, 30.06.1981. In the rules also the unit of appointment shall be a full zone or two or three zones comprising a multi zones, but not parts of zones.

8. In view of the above circumstances the representations of Sri. V.R. Surendra Babu Senior Assistant deserves consideration for seniority and promotion, since, the Sri M. Madhusudan, Senior Assistant belongs to zone V, and working in the Inter State Joint Project Division on OD basis, and hence is not eligible for seniority and promotion as Superintendent being on an O.D. post as he belongs to zone-V and therefore shall be repatriated back to his zone. Promoting a person on O.D is repugnant to Service Rules, Fundamental Rules and all cannons of Service norms.

9. In the light of the above position the Govt. in I & CAD Department may instruct the Engineer-in-Chief (AW), I & CAD department are requested to take necessary action to file a revision petition in O.A. No.6953/89 before the APAT for vacation of stay and render justice to Sri V.R. Surendra Babu in seniority and promote him to the post of Superintendent in Inter State Joint Project Sri M. Madhusudhan should be sent back from O.D to his original post.

*****

Heard all points of view mentioned by the two sides affected. From Government side Sri Rajeev Trivedi, IPS, Additional Secretary stated Government’s point of view; from DG&IG of Police side Sri I.J.Nagia, IPS, Additional Director General of Police (Administration) stated the views of Head of the Department; from Commandant, SAR, CPL, Amberpet, Sri K.S.N.Murthy, Administrative Officer stated the point of view of his office.

Additional D.G.P., Sri Nagia, IPS elucidated the facts relevant to the case covered by OMC D.O.Lr.NO.06/88/OMC(A-1)/2003-1, dt.28.6.2003 on the representation of Sri R.Venkateswarlu, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Headquarters, Hyderabad. Sri Nagia mentioned that the staffing structure of SAR,CPL, Amberpet was rather peculiar with a very broad base and narrow top from C.I. onwards which left very little scope for promotions at all levels from S.I. onwards. As the cadre management authority, the D.G & I.G.P., therefore had to seek opportunities where the staff could get some relief by way of promotions through deputations. It is because of this that the officers of the rank of S.I. and C.I. were being deputed wherever there was demand from Organisations like the Intelligence Bureau, Excise etc. The deputations provided for promotion opportunities which were lacking in the SAR, CPL, Amberpet.

He conceded that in the anxiety to provide avenues of promotions there might have been some bypassing of the normal rules and procedures but care will be taken to ensure against such deviations.
A number of persons who are opposing the petition of Sri R.Venkateswarlu, ACP, Headquarters, Hyderabad and others mentioned that it is not only SAR, CPL, Amberpet from which people had been deputed to Intelligence Bureau and other Organisations but a large number were also deputed from the regular police force. If one vacancy had generated about three promotions through the process of deputation in SAR, CPL, Amberpet, they were ready to give instances where through the same process in the City Police one vacancy had generated even nine promotions. The lists furnished by them are enclosed for DGP’s scrutiny and report.

Sri R.Venkateswarlu gave a list of 27 RSIs from SAR, CPL, Amberpet along with their notional dates, who were sent to various departments. According to him the process of deputation had resulted in promotions to all of them with notional dates which were traced to the junior most persons who held the post of C.I. in SAR, CPL, Amberpet, by promotion in the vacancies created by their deputation. He mentioned that the total number of sanctioned posts of C.Is. in SAR, CPL, Amberpet is only 6 (six), whereas the total number of C.Is. who originally belong to this unit but are on deputation as well as in the unit itself is 27. In other words the 6 posts have generated 5 times the number of promotions which is a very odd phenomenon. This has affected the opportunities which should have gone to the incumbents of the regular police force because most of the deputations are in Multi-Zone-II to which Zone-VI belongs. The petitioner himself belongs to City Police (which was till recently excluded from the operation of Presidential Order, till the Judgement of the Hon’ble High Court brought it under Zone-VI). Hence City Police was on par with SAR, CPL, Amberpet both being excluded organizations. The opposite side has in its petition pointed out that the City Police was also a beneficiary of similar multiple promotions generated by one deputation in Multi-Zone-II. Therefore, Sri Venkateswarlu had no cause for grievance as the process of deputation and generation of multiple promotions through it, had benefited both the City Police as well as SAR, CPL, Amberpet.

The Additional DGP said that the persons from regular police and City Police were often unwilling to go to Intelligence wing. Therefore the promotions were given to SAR CPL, Amberpet incumbents, who were willing to go on deputation. The Intelligence wing also was unwilling to relieve those who were already there and adjusted them to promotion posts when their promotions in the parent organisations became due.

It is good that this meeting was held and the Commission also appreciates that all sides have come fully prepared and the Addl. DGP threw light on the whole system of deputations in the police department and the ground realities governing such deputations. The Commission appreciates the difficulties of the cadre management authorities in such a vast and varied department. However the Commission’s task is limited and that is to ensure that there is no deviation from the letter and spirit of the Presidential Order as it represents a very delicate balance of a political settlement.

In the first place the procedure being followed in the department regarding deputations is not in conformity with Fundamental Rules and Executive Instructions issued thereon in Part-V, Chapter-XII of Fundamental Rules and General Rules 8, 10, 11, 18 and 21 that govern deputation. Normally a person on deputation cannot be given promotion while he is away. It is only when he joins his parent organisation that he can get promotion. He cannot get promotion in-absentia. But in police department, it now emerged that the persons are promoted in-absentia while on deputation in the other wings of department or in other departments and they get adjusted to promotion posts in those departments, and the same vacancy generates multiple promotions in the parent wing of the department.

In fact the concept of deputation is that a person goes on tenure for a fixed period. When he is due for promotion in the parent unit he has to come back to get the promotion. Otherwise his lien as such cannot be promoted, only the person can be promoted. But here the whole system has been to promote the lien and on that basis the person gets promotion post in the organisation where he is on deputation. This system militates against the service rules.

All the provisions of Fundamental Rules and the Executive Instructions issued thereon in Chapter-XII and all the provisions related to deputation in General Rules mentioned above have been over looked totally.

In as far as the Presidential Order is concerned the deputations have to be legal and in conformity with the Fundamental Rules and General Rules as they involve rights of local candidates which cannot be trampled upon through illegal deputations.

Secondly deputations are governed only by Para 9(B) of G.O.(P) NO.728, dt.1/11/75 but as has been seen, in all the wings of the Police Department para 9(B) is observed in the breach. The reasons normally given are that people are not willing to go on deputation and so only willing people are taken and therefore the fair share proportion cannot be followed.

The Commission finds that the deputations takes place to

1) Other wings of the police department viz., Intelligence, Grey Hounds, Railway Police, SIB, SSF and Police Training College. (Intelligence Wing, Railway Police, PTC falls under GSR 527(E)).

2) Three of these organisations are excluded from the Presidential Order under para 14. But all the three are expected to take deputationists (1) legally and (2) on a fair share basis of para 9(B) of G.O.P.No.728. This has not happened, which means, strictly speaking, the various zones have been deprived of sending their local candidates on deputation. At their cost, it is the excluded organisation SAR, CPL, Amberpet that has gained, but not exclusively. It is also alleged that deputationsts are there in these excluded organisation from city police hich also till recently was an excluded organisation. One of the circulars of D.G. & I.G.P. shows that for security wing of Intelligence proportion of posts was made between the two multi-zones and also SAR, CPL, Amberpet. However this does not satisfy the requirements of para 9(B) of G.O.P No.728 for the following reasons:-

a). Para 9(B) of G.O.P.No.728 does not contemplate deputation taking place from an excluded organisation either to a localised cadre or to another excluded organisation. Excluded organisations can be recipients of deputationists and they are not, in the scheme of Presidential Order and G.O.P. No.728 lending organisations.

b). Secondly the fair share is very specifically laid down in Para 9(B) in terms of a formula, based on basic cadre strength of each local area (District/Zone/Multi-zone as the case may be). In practice the police department has found it very difficult to follow this. But since any deviation from Para 9(B) under the Presidential Order affects the promotion opportunities of persons in localised cadre it falls under the category of deviations of Presidential Order. The deviation gets compounded when it is basically also in violation of the relevant Fundamental Rules and General Rules cited herein above.

In as far as Mr.R.Venkateswarlu, ACP, Headquarters, Hyderabad is concerned, he belongs to the City Police which was till recently an excluded organisation and from an excluded organisation it is not contemplated that there should be deputation to another excluded organisation or to any localised cadres of other departments. Hence personally he or anyone from City Police has no grievance or no right that have been adversely affected. It is only after City Police has come under localisation after the High Court Judgement that any right of deputation accrues to the City Police officials.

After the High Court Judgement, the City Police become a part of local cadre and the posts of ARI, RI belongs to zone-VI. Hereafter the DG&IGP would, it is hoped, take into account the formula 9(B) and work out the fair share in giving deputations to excluded wings mentioned above.

In as far as Grey Hounds, SIB and SSF they are not included in any GSR. Perhaps they were created long after the Presidential Order. Again legally speaking they become part of local cadres and local cadres should be formed in them. But why they are taking people on deputation is because it is important for them to have selectivity of individual suitability for particular nature of the organisation. Here again being localised organisations their selection should be limited only to the same local cadre (District/Zone as the case may be). It would be advisable, if the D.G. & IGP feels that localised deputation will create constraints to selectivity, than these should be brought under GSR 527(E) like the Intelligence wing. But even then they will not be able to escape the application of Para 9(B) of G.O.P. No.728.

The entire case shows that there is need for the following action.

(1). To rework out the entire set of promotion dates by applying the Fundamental Rules and Service Rules pertaining to deputation so that the violation of these rules which has resulted in multiple deputations and wrongful advantages is set-right and the promotion dates are revised and given according to the Fundamental Rules and General Rules cited hereinabove.

In saying this, it is not the Presidential Order that we are applying. If the Presidential Order is to be applied all the deputations should be revised retrospectively based on Para 9(B).

(2). Deputations to other departments
(a). Printing Press: There is no deputation involved because the government have created a post which was allotted by DG&IGP to SAR, CPL, Amberpet and the C.I. from there is supposed to go on other duty to the Press but not on deputation.

(b). Excise & other departments: The deputation to these departments are not to any excluded organisation of the department but to the cadres which should be localised cadres. The task force should also be a localised cadre and the deputation should only be from the same local cadre (District/Zone) of the police department not from an excluded organisation like SAR,CPL, Amberpet or City Police which was hitherto an excluded organisation.

(3). The seniorities and promotion dates would necessarily have to be revised in the light of the observations of the Commission.

6. S.BAL REDDY, President, PHEA Association.

Sri Chandrasekhar, Deputy Chief Engineer, O/o Engineer-in-Chief, Public Health Engineering Department stated as under:-

1). This Department Deputy Executive Engineers are posted to Hyderabad Metro Water Works & Sewerage Board according to the number required by them. It is they who do the deployment within the Department. The Public Health Engineering Department has no idea whom they post to the projects and whom to the Departmental posts.

2). Initially 48 posts were calculated for the projects and the Special Office of Hyderabad Metro Water Works & Sewerage Board shown against Public Health Engineering Department notified under GSRs in the Presidential Order. According to the Fair Share formula prescribed in para 9(B) of G.O.P.No.728, G.A (SPF-A) Dept., dt. 1-11-75 these 48 posts were apportioned among all the zones including the City cadre (which he calls Zone-VII). The Deputy Executive Engineers were posted in that proportion. Presently there are only 26 Deputy Executive Engineers from other zones in the Department against 48 posts in the projects and the Special Office. The total number of posts in the Department is 82. Whether deputationists from other zones are posted in the Department or the projects is not known to the Public Health Engineering Department.

3). He agrees that all the projects including the notified in the Presidential Order against Public Health Engineering Department under GSR 525(E) Manjeera Water Supply Scheme, Second Phase and Remodelling of Water distribution system in the twin cities have been completed long time ago, though not notified as completed. They are under maintenance phase. However the deputations are being made as if projects exist. In spite of projects being completed the 48 project posts have not been disbanded by the Department and are being utilised in the Hyderabad Metro Water Works & Sewerage Board. The Special Office under GSR 526(E) Manjeera Investigation Circle is also closed down.

4). Two new projects have been started one, Krishna Drinking Water Supply Project the other Mega City Project Work is going on in the concerned areas. But the headquarters for the Divisions and Sub-divisions for those works are located, at least for the present, in Hyderabad city. These projects are not notified as Major Development Project under GSR 525(E), issued under the Presidential Order. The Department proposed to get them notified.

5). The Department itself has most of the posts in Hyderabad city. But there are a few Sub-divisions located outside the city in Ranga Reddy District and Medak District.

Mr.Latif Khan from O/o M.D., Hyderabad Metro Water Works & Sewerage Board confirmed the above facts.

I have mentioned to the officers present as under:-

1). That the projects having been completed, there is no project work for the Assistant Executive Engineers & Deputy Executive Engineers in these projects. Therefore there are no posts in the projects as such. The only work is maintenance work which is not project work but regular Departmental function. The posts of Assistant Executive Engineers / Deputy Executive Engineers intended for projects are being utilised in the Department for the departmental functions. Therefore there are no grounds for sending anybody to the Department on deputation basis which is intended only for the projects under the aforesaid para 9(B). Since all the Deputy Executive Engineers are engaged in departmental work and occupy departmental posts only they should be posted according to the local cadre rules. As the HMWS&S Board is under the City Cadre under GSR 528(E) all the AEE & Deputy Executive Engineer posts located in the “City of Hyderabad” (as notified in the First Schedule of Presidential Order) should be occupied only by the Assistant Executive Engineers & Deputy Executive Engineers from the City Cadre.

2). All the Assistant Executive Engineers & Deputy Executive Engineers posts located in Medak and R.R. Districts should be occupied only by those from zone-VI cadre.

3). All the Assistant Executive Engineers & Deputy Executive Engineers deputed from other zones than the City Cadre should be withdrawn except those from VI zone who are occupying the posts located in the VI zone i.e. in Medak district or Ranga Reddy District.

4). Hyderabad Metro Water Works & Sewerage Board will send to the ENC (PHED) immediately within 48 hours a list of the posts of Assistant Executive Engineers & Deputy Executive Engineers whose offices or Sub-divisions are located in the City of Hyderabad and in zone-VI.

5). The two new projects under Krishna Drinking Water Project & Mega City Project cannot at present be treated as Major Development Projects. Therefore the posts belonging to these projects should be treated like all other departmental posts. Since the offices and sub-divisions of the projects are presently located in “City of Hyderabad”, these posts belong to the City Cadre. If and when the offices are shifted to the project sites those posts shall be filled from the concerned zone in which the offices are located.

6). The Hyderabad Metro Water Works & Sewerage Board representative mentioned that proposals are being submitted to the Government for notification of the Krishna Drinking Water Project & Mega City project under GSR 525 (E). As and when these are notified under GSR 525 (E) the Public Health Engineering Department will work out the fair share proportions for deputation from each zone, and depute accordingly.

7). Whenever Assistant Executive Engineers or Deputy Executive Engineers are posted by the Public Health Engineering Department the Departments should specify that they are intended for the Department and should not be moved from the zone concerned.

8) As and when Krishna Drinking Water Project & Mega City Project or any other Project is notified under GSR 525 (E), the order deputing the Assistant Executive Engineers and Deputy Executive Engineers should specifically mentioned that they are intended for the Projects and cannot be shifted to the Department as that would be in contravention of the Presidential Order.

9) The Department has to work out and review retrospectively from the date of completion of each project and calculate how many non-local Assistant Executive Engineers and Deputy Executive Engineers have worked there since that date and retrospectively calculate the seniority and promotions lost by the local Assistant Executive Engineers and Deputy Executive Engineers of the concerned zone “City Cadre” or VI zone as the case may be. The Department should take action to restore to those deprived incumbents their wrongfully lost seniorities and promotions. Similarly the wrongfully gained seniorities and promotions of the incumbents from other zones would have to be reworked out retrospectively and revised accordingly.

Action taken on all the points may please be intimated to this Commission and to Government in M.A & U. D Department and G.A (SPF) Department.

It was pointed to the Deputy Chief Engineer (PHED) that they have not been sending reports to the references made by this Commission. He has promised to send the reports within 48 hours.

Sub: OMC (SPF) – Appointment of candidates selected by APPSC for the post of Assistant Executive Engineers by replacement of temporary Assistant Executive Engineers- Proceedings of meeting – Communicated – Reg.

* * *

The petitioners have pointed out the irregularities in the recruitment of Assistant Executive Engineers by the Panchayati Raj Engineering department in the years 1991 to 1995. These Assistant Executive Engineers were recruited from among the work charged employees of different levels from Tracers to Work Inspectors. The Assistant Executive Engineers should have been recruited through Public Service Commission. But the government had permitted recruitment from among the work charged employees.

The case of the Association is that the Public Service Commission had recruited some candidates for the posts of Assistant Executive Engineers on a notification issued by the government. The government had cancelled this notification after the recruitment and hence these candidates were not taken by the government and remained without any appointment.

The candidates who had been appointed from among the work charged employees continue to occupy the posts without regularisation which has not yet taken place. The candidates were not taken on the basis of the Presidential Order. They were also taken without any merit test. Being already employed their elevation to the post of Assistant Executive Engineers is in the nature of promotion but it was called direct appointment.

The matter was discussed with the Engineer-in-Chief (PR) today. He mentioned that he had already written that the appointments were done under government orders for meeting an emergency situation of completing the programme of works under UK Aid.

The limited point for consideration of this Commission is whether in appointing the work charged employees to the posts of Assistant Executive Engineers, the Presidential Order was properly followed. The Engineer-in-Chief (PR) has mentioned that they had abided by the ratio of 60 per cent posts being given to the local candidates and 40 per cent were treated by them as a quota for non-locals. Even in this calculation they have 8 local candidates less and 8 non-local candidates more in terms of this percentage as under:

Zone Total Earmarked Appointed Excess
candidates
Local Non-Local Local Non-Local Local Non- Local
I 92 55 37 55 37 – -
II 54 32 22 35 19 +3 -3
III 75 45 30 54 21 +9 -9
IV 168 100 68 131 37 +31 -1
V 138 83 55 75 63 -8 +8
VI 167 100 67 108 59 -8 +8

There are two flaws in the recruitment in as far as the Presidential Order is concerned.

1). The department has not verified the local status of the candidates in terms of para-7 of the Presidential Order. The E-in-C (PR) and his officers admitted that whoever was working in a particular zone was treated as a local candidate of that zone since work charged employees were not taken and posted on the basis of the Presidential Order, this criterion of place of work would not be relevant for knowing whether a candidate is a local or non-local for the zone to which he was appointed.

2). The second flaw is that they have treated 40% as a quota for non-locals which is not correct. It is the percentage for merit candidates.

Even in the context of these flaws we find that as seen from the above table, in zone-II, III and IV there are more than 60% so called local candidates as per the criterion applied; but in zone-V and VI there are 8 candidates less among local candidates in the 60% quota.

The entire recruitment is in contravention of the Presidential Order whatever be the other defects in terms of General Service Rules, Fundamental Rules etc. The question therefore is whether the candidates selected by the Public Service Commission should replace these incumbents in office who have been appointed in contravention of the Presidential Order.

The scope of the Commission’s Terms of Reference does not permit it to decide on this claim. If the government have decided that they shall not appoint these APPSC selected candidates, it is between the government and those candidates. There is nothing that this Commission has to say about their claim.

But as far as the validity of the appointment of the present incumbents stands, as already mentioned above the appointments are made in violation of the Presidential Order.

The remedial action logically would be to ascertain the local candidate status of each incumbent and put him in his local zone. The non-locals have no quota. 40% is a merit quota. This is not a direct recruitment done on merit. So this 40% for non-locals has no meaning. There is also no way of finding out who would have been in the merit quota at that time. This will show:-

A). Some zones with local candidates in excess of 100% vacancies.
B). Some zones with 100% local candidates for the vacancies.
C). Some zones with 80 or more than 80% but less than 100% local candidates for the vacancies.
D). Some zones with less than 80% local candidates.

In ‘A&B’ the local candidates can occupy the vacancies upto 100%. In ‘C’ all the local candidates can occupy the vacancies even though these exceed 80%. The balance vacancies left will go to the non-local who are the excess locals of ‘A’ above. In case of D, all the local candidates can occupy vacancies to the extent of their number. The shortfall from 80% should be treated as local vacancies carried forward as a backlog. 40% vacancies can be filled from among the excess of local candidates of ‘A’, who will occupy the vacancies as non-local candidates.

The backlog can be made good through the same method as was used in this impugned recruitment, i.e., by special direct recruitment from among Work Inspectors who would be local candidates for the zone in ‘D’ category. If however there are not enough local candidates available, then they should be recruited as A.E.Es from the open market by a special recruitment.

The excess non-locals will have to occupy supernumerary posts in the zone in which they are local candidates. Government can also revert them as Work Inspectors to become part of the surplus manpower pool.

Proceedings No. 06/63/OMC/B.1/2001, dated 15/09/2003

Sub: OMC – SPF – Technical Education Department – Estt. – Representation of Sri J. Yadaiah Senior Assistant – Revised seniority claim over the non-locals – Reg.

* * *

Sri J. Yadaiah, Sr. Asst. O/o Commissioner of Technical Education in his representation cited reported that in the City cadre he became Junior to some of non-locals who were appointed in the State Level Institutions situated in the Hyderabad City along with local candidates belonging to City Cadre. He was appointed as Jr. Asst. on 27/10/1976 in Govt. Technical High School and Central Workshop, Secunderabad and was promoted as Sr. Asst. on 20/12/1990 at Govt. Polytechnic, Old city Hyderabad. He contended that due to the intermixing of the cadres belonging to the Hyderabad City Cadre with the employees of the State Level Institutions situated in the City, the Non-Locals got a march over the Locals and thus he was deprived of his promotion chances.

Hearing was held on 24/02/2003. The Petitioner and the Officials of the Technical Education Department attended the Hearing.

This is a peculiar case where three State Level Institutions of the Department of Technical Education were treated as Institutions of city cadre right from the beginning of the Presidential Order. And the recruitment for the post of LDCs and equivalent level either through the Public Service Commission or Employment Exchange directly was done for the vacancies of the City Cadre. Other offices of the Department in the city and these Institutions together took the vacancies as a pool and allotments were made from out of the candidates recruited for all those pooled vacancies. For promotions also, the common seniority has been taken for the city cadre personnel along with the personnel of these three State Level Institutions treating them as interchangeable and as common unit of appointment. Actually, each of the State Level Institutions should have been treated as a separate unit of appointment and each of the city cadre establishments like Polytechnics etc. should also have been treated as separate units of appointments. Instead of doing this all the city cadre establishments including these State Level Institutions were treated as a single unit of appointment. Deputy Director and Assistant Director who appeared were unable to show either the Service Rules or the scheme of localization approved for the Department after the Presidential Order. They mentioned that they were following the AP Ministerial Service Rules.

Under the Presidential Order the three State Level Institutions:
1. Institute of Leather Technology, Hyderabad.
2. Institute of Electronics, Hyderabad.
3. Institute of Printing Technology, Secunderabad.

are outside the purview of the Presidential Order excepting that if they take staff on tenure basis, they should do so under the principle of equitable sharing laid down in para 11 (ii) of the clarificatory G.O.P.No.728, dt: 01.11.1975 (Page 55 of the Guide Lines Book).

In the beginning for about 10 to 15 years, the Department has followed the wrong practice of directly recruiting to the vacancies of these three Institutions pooling them with the vacancies of the city cadre establishments. In case of direct recruitment to such Institutions each should have been treated as a unit of appointment itself with internal seniority and promotion. But here the seniority, promotions etc., were integrated with those of the city cadre establishments. Thus, the seniorities of personnel of both City Level Institutions and of these Institutions got distorted and one is not able to say who have gained and who lost in such an invalid integrated seniority.

The Commission does not have the scheme of the localization of the Department to say whether that Scheme has anything to do with such an invalid integration. However, Deputy Director and Assistant Director personally told the Commission that the Department has rectified the mistake prospectively and now they are taking staff on tenure basis only on the equitable proportions principle laid down in Para 9 (B) of G.O.P. 728 dated 01-11-1975.

The grievance in this case is from the person (Petitioner) belonging to “City Cadre establishment” who feels that the integration of their seniority with the State Level Institutions has adversely affected his chances of promotion. However, neither he nor the Department are in a position to say what he has lost and if so who has gained by the integration. The Petitioner was therefore asked to workout and say what he has lost by the integration seniority so that specific redressal can be ordered after examining his specific grievance. He has however not been able to say what redressal he needs or what has been the loss.

However, in due course of time, the petitioner has submitted the relevant information to the Commission in the reference 3rd cited and the same was sent for the remarks of the Commissioner of Technical Education. But no reply has been received, from the Head of the Department.

The aspect of this case in general is one of contravension of the Presidential Order by the Department by adopting the wrong procedure mentioned above which has totally distorted the seniorities and the prospects of all concerned. This is an issue that has to be taken cognisance of by the Government so that such a thing do not happen again, or elsewhere. The Government may kindly issue clear instructions in this regard so that if there are any other Departments committing similar mistakes, they may desist from doing so.
In the specific case of this Petitioner and the Department this Commission suggests the following Remedial Action to the Government:
The cadre strength of each of State-level Institution and City cadre offices should be demarcated in respect of each category. Through options, persons may be allocated to each of the cadres. By fixing some criteria of merit etc., the allocation of staff to each unit should be completed. The seniority etc. should be re-fixed as per that merit. Seniorities should be fixed for each unit of appointment. Necessary changes may be made in the Service Rules to disentangle each of the State level Institutions from the City cadre offices. The future recruitment to each of the State-level Institution should be made separately as a separate unit of appointment so also the seniority, promotion etc. The offices within the city of Hyderabad which fall under City cadre can have integrated cadre separate from the State-level Institutions.

There appears to be no possibility or need for retrospective action. The separation should be in such a way that there is least harm caused to any employee in terms of his seniority, promotion prospects etc., while considering the request of the Petitioner.

The Government may also kindly instruct the Technical Education Department to stop this wrong practice if they have not already stopped it; The Department should take the staff on tenure basis as laid down in para 11 (ii) of the G.O.P. No.728, dt:01.11.1975 or by direct recruitment treating these State Level Institutions, City Cadre Institutions as separate Units of appointment, respectively.

Proceedings No.11/OMC/MA&UD/B2/2002, dated 22.09.2003.

Sub:- OMC(SPF) – Sri Y.R. Sathi Reddy, Dy.E.E. (HMWS&SB) – PH&ME Department – Individual Petition – Proceedings – Regarding.

Ref:- 1. Representation of Sri Y.R. Sathi Reddy, Municipal Engineer, Cuddapah, dated 12.11.02, 15.04.03 and 23.06.03.
2. E-in-C Public Health, Hyderabad Lr. No.SPF/CS3/2003-Vol.II, dated 01.09.2003.

* * *

In the Representation first cited the Petitioner Sri Y.R. Sathi Reddy, Deputy Executive Engineer, Public Health & Municipal Engineering Department (now i/c Municipal Engineer, Cuddapah Municipality) has contended that most of the posts of DEEs in Hyderabad Metro Water Supply and Sewerage Board are actually located in the zone VI, exclusively attending to the work relating to the Districts which come under zone VI, but all these posts are being treated as posts of Major Development Projects and hence requested for suitable remedial action to protect the interest of the AEEs/DEEs of Zone VI.

The Representation has been heard; the officials of the Chief Engineer (Public Health) Department, HMWS&SB and Secretariat attended. The Petitioner, however, did not attend the Hearing.

The Deputy Chief Engineer, Public Health stated that initially 48 posts were calculated for the Projects and the Special Office of HMWS&SB shown against Public Health Engineering Department notified under GSRs in the Presidential Order. According to the Fair Share formula prescribed in Para 9 (B) of G.O.P. No.728, GA (SPF.A) Department, dated 01.11.1975 these 48 posts were apportioned among all the zones including the City Cadre (which he calls Zone-VII). The DEEs were posted in that proportion. Presently there are only 26 DEEs from other zones in the Department against 48 posts in the Projects and Special Office. The total number of posts in the Department is 82. Whether deputationists from other zones are posted in the Department or the Projects is not known to the Public Health Engineering Department.

The Deputy Chief Engineer has agreed that all the Projects including those notified in the Presidential Order against Public Health Engineering Department under GSR 525 (E) Manjeera Water Supply Scheme, Second Phase and Remodeling of Water Distribution System in the twin cities have been completed long time ago, though not notified as completed. They are under maintenance phase. However, the deputations are being made as if Projects exist. In spite of Projects being completed the 48 Project posts have not been disbanded by the Department and are being utilised in the HMWS&SB. The Special Office under GSR 526 (E) Maneru Investigation Circle is also closed down.

As per the copy of the Letter No.1235/CS3/94, dated 02.09.1996 of the Engineer-in-Chief, Public Health addressed to the Principal Secretary to the Government, MA&UD Department, the status of the Major Development Projects and the Special Office / Establishment of HMWS&SB is as follows:

1. The Manjeera Water Supply Scheme Phase-II: (Sl.No.11/GSR 525 (E).

It was completed and commissioned in July 1981.

2. Remodeling of Water Supply Distribution Scheme: (Sl.No.14/GSR 525 (E)

Sanctioned in the year 1971-72 and was completed in the year 1982.

3. Maneru Investigation Circle: (Sl.No.27/GSR 526 (E)

Sanctioned in the year 1979 and was closed on 31.10.1984.

Having heard the case and on going through the record the Commission holds that the posts of AEEs and DEEs that have, from time to time ceased to be utilised for Projects works, should not have been treated as Project Posts right from the actual time when they ceased to be used for Project works. But, ever since, they have been diverted, de-facto, on ground, to regular department for regulatory and maintenance work. From that time onwards they ceased to fall under the purview of the item (e) of Para-14 of the Presidential Order and ceased to be excluded from the purview of the Presidential Order. But, the Engineer-in-Chief has been treating them wrongly as Project posts and sending incumbents from other zones on deputation to these posts.

In the instant case of the HMWS&SB, the two Major Development Projects and the Special Office/Establishment have been completed long ago. Hence, it is irrelevant whether such Projects have not been formally notified as completed for various technical and financial considerations. The rationale is that, where any post ceases to be utilised for the Projects work and is diverted to the regular department for utilisation on departmental functions, like regulatory or maintenance work, it cannot be treated as a Project post, under item (e) of Para 14 of the Presidential Order. Hence, the moment of a post ceased to be utilised actually and de-facto on ground on Project work it should have been included in the localization scheme of the department, as otherwise the local candidates will be deprived of their rightful opportunities of zonal seniorities and promotions and consequential concomitant benefits.

In the circumstance, it is hereby held that the Department has to work out and review retrospectively from the date of completion of each Project and calculate how many non-local AEEs & DEEs have worked there since that date and retrospectively calculate the seniority and promotions lost by the local AEEs and DEEs of the concerned local area, City Cadre or VI Zone, as the case may be. The Department should take action to restore to those deprived incumbents their wrongfully lost seniorities and promotions; similarly, the wrongfully gained seniorities and promotions of the incumbents from other zones would have to be reworked out retrospectively and revised accordingly; including that of the Petitioner Sri Y.R. Sathi Reddy.

    “Sri. K. Gangaram, former President of Medak TNGOs Union said that a list of 40,000 non-local in Zones V and VI was given to the then Hon’ Chief Minister, late Sri. N. T. ” – from above report

    my first comment:

    Assuming Sri Gangaram’s list of 40,000 non-locals is correct, out of current Telangana Government staff 2006 census of 6 Lak this is only 6% of jobs. Presidential order says 20% of jobs are merit based and 80% are for locals.

    if we use non-local number from http://www.telangana.org/Papers/article9.asp which is 59,000.

    We still have only 10% (59,000/600,000) of government jobs for non-locals.

    So in both cases, we are within the bounds of the 20% merit based limit.

    my second comment:

    This is probably a more important point. If we look at government staff census numbers for 2006, one notices Telangana has 1.5 Lakh more state government employees than the next biggest region (Andra). This is mostly because Hyderabad is the capital of a massive geographic region.

    https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0Ai9i1YjRUxU8dFVkMU5ONFgyT3hQX2VFSGVnenZwVkE&hl=en&pli=1#gid=0

    Forming Telangana mean 40,000 non-locals will be replaced with locals, as well as 1.5 Lakh government jobs go to SeemaAndra’s new capital. Even a badly implemented Go. 610 (40,000 illegal non-locals) is better than creating a Telanagana (110,000 Telanganites + 40,000 illegal non-locals lose job in the immediate short term).

    Interesting ramifications. By my modelling, Go 610 not a reason i would form a new state. Please respond with inaccuracies in my model. I want to improve my knowledge.
