वाद संख्या 1727 की मुख्य बातें

साथियो, 
जैसी कि सूचना दी जा चुकी है,01 मई,2015 के बाद की रिक्तियों के एवज़ में सीधी भर्ती केवल 25 प्रतिशत रखने के लिए 42 अनुवादकोे ने वाद दायर किया है(OA 1727/2016) जिसपर 16 मई,2016 को सुनवाई के बाद कैट ने अगली तारीख 28 जुलाई निर्धारित की है। आप सबकी सूचना के लिए यहां वाद से संबंधित मुख्य तथ्य रखे जा रहे हैं- 
1. PARTICULARS OF THE ORDER / CAUSE AGAINST WHICH THE ORIGINAL APPLICATION IS FILED

A. Impugned order No. 16/8/2014-O.L (Service) dated 12.6.2014 of Department of Official Language. 

B. Impugned Advertisement No. 12/2015 of UPSC. 

4. FACTS OF THE CASE: 
4.1 That the applicants joined Department of Official Language as Jr. Translator. After rendering 3 years of regular service, the applicants became eligible to be considered for promotion as Sr. Translator. However, the applicants were not promoted as Sr. Translator even after rendering more than 15 to 20 years of service and further not promoted them as Assistant Director in time inspite of availability of vacancies by holding regular DPCs. Respondents regularised adhoc Assistant Director for vacancy year 2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-12, 2012-13, 2013-14 and 2014-15 vide recent orders all dated 17.03.2016 (a copy of each order attached as Annexure A-2) but did not hold DPC for vacancy year 2015-16 so far. 

4.2 That the applicants in the OA are those Sr. Translators who have been included in zone of consideration in DPC to make 65 pomotions against normal vacancies after filling up resultant vacancies on adhoc basis and also those Sr. Translators who are expecting their promotion in near future. 

4.10 That it is also relevant to notice that vide aforesaid order dated 10.2.2012, the respondents promoted 60 more Senior Translators to the post of ad hoc Assistant Director making the total strength of ad hoc Assistant Directors to 160, where Shri Jharkhandey Singh is the junior most. (circulated Seniority list of 160 ad hoc Assistant Directors attached). Out of 160 ad hoc Assistant Directors, 29 adhoc Assistant Directors have been regularised for pre-cadre review period and 55 adhoc Assistant Directors have been regularised for resultant vacancy year 2011-12 vide orders all dated 17.03.2016. The said action of respondents regularizing only 55 adhoc promotions for resultant vacancy year 2011-12 instead of regularising 112 adhoc promotions against resultant vacancies and regularising remaining adhoc promotions Shri Jharkhandey Singh against normal vacancies of resultant vacancy year 2011-12 can not be said to be justified being violative of their own decisions taken for holding cadre review. 

4.13 That in fact, both the aforesaid decisions conveyed vide letter dated 12.06.2014 are erroneous because provision of ACP/MACP can not be equated with the provision of promotion, particularly those promotions which are by way of restructuring to remove the stagnation. Secondly, the decision of the respondents to fill up 50 of resultant vacancies by direct recruitment is also erroneous because the resultant posts have arisen as a result of restructuring order which was passed by the government in order to remove the stagnation and in this view of the matter, the action of the respondents by deciding to fill up 50 of the vacancies by direct recruitment is like giving by one hand and taking it by the other. The decision of filling up the resultant vacancies was not only arbitrary but was also illegal inasmuch as, when the Ministry of Home Affairs with approval of Ministry of Finance had decided to fill up the resultant vacancies by way of promotion only, how could the subordinate authority decide to fill up 50 resultant vacancies by way of direct recruitment. 

4.15 That if recruitment of 50 Assistant Director is made by the UPSC then only after 11 years i.e. in end of the year 2027, 18 direct recruits will occupy all posts of Director (18) and remaining 32 direct recruits will occupy the post of Joint Director. Meaning thereby, the applicants never get chance for promotion to the aforesaid post of Jr. Director & Director. This said fact may be verified from the date of birth of available Assistant Directors. 

4.16 That it is also relevant to notice that the respondent’s vide their letter dated 12.06.2014 (Annexure A-7) revealed that they had also initiated the DPC proceedings asking APAR of 98 Senior Translators vide their OM No. 15/95/2013-O.L(service) dated 29.01.2014 (Annexure A-8) to fill up 65 posts of Assistant Director lying vacant at that point of time on ad hoc arrangement in the same manner as that of resultant vacancies. However, finally, the respondents cleared only 15 promotions and kept the 50 vacancies vacant. No reasons were assigned for not filling up all the 65 vacancies of Assistant Director required to be filled up under the un-amended rule. 

4.17 That in fact, the respondents were taking self contradictory stands and were not implementing their own decisions of filling up resultant vacancies by way of promotion only. The applicants did their best to get the available vacancies filled up by way of promotion. However, instead of agreeing with the applicants, the respondents issued an advertisement No. 12/2015 on 12.09.2015 to fill up 50 posts of Assistant Director by way of direct recruitment. 

4.18 That after the issue of aforesaid advertisement the applicants made several representations dated 24.06.2015 and 10.07.2015 through Dinesh Kumar Singh President of Central Secretariat Official Language Service Translators Association to ensure that before resorting to direct recruitment as per the new RRs notified in 2015 all the vacancies became available under the old RRs are filled up by way of promotions. In fact, vide notification dated 01.05.2015 the respondents amended the RRs for the post of Assistant Director and categorized the same as group ‘A’ post in the scale of Rs. 15600-39100 with grade pay of Rs. 5400. Since before making aforesaid amendment, the post was categorized as group ‘B’ and in the advertisement the same was shown as group ‘A’, therefore the respondents were required to ensure that only new vacancies occurred after notification of RRs are filled up. However, the respondents acted arbitrarily and decided to give 50 vacancies from the newly created vacancies to the direct recruits and that too by violating the settled legal position that the vacancies occurred under old RRs cannot be filled up by new RRs. 

4.19 That the respondents have also ignored another most relevant fact that vacancies arisen after 12.9.2011 and before 1-5-2015 have to be filled up in the same manner as that of resultant posts because during this period, there was no rule as to how these posts could be filled up, particularly, when after the decision of 6th Pay Commission to upgrade the post of Assistant Director from group ‘B’ to group ‘A’, no rules had been framed till 1-5-2015 and therefore, all those vacancies arisen in the meantime have to be filled up in the same manner in which resultant vacancies have been filled up by the respondents. 

4.21 That as the respondents were not ready to appreciate the version of applicants, therefore, they again submitted representations on 25.01.2016 and 13.04.2016 through Dinesh Kumar Singh, President of Central Secretariat Official Language Service Translators Association for rectifying the said illegality. However, the respondents have acted arbitrarily as they have not consider the said representation in spite of applicants best efforts. The applicants have time and again explained to the respondents that when the resultant vacancies of cadre review were to be filled up only by way of promotion and the new RRs were notified and made effective only 01.05.2015 by no means 50 vacancies of AD could be given to direct recruitment. 

4.22 That it is also relevant to notice that the respondents have not only ignored the law regarding filling up the vacancies as per the prevalent rules, but they also failed to consider that vacancies as became available either due to retirement or for any other reason are required to be calculated and filled up as per the different modes prescribed in the RRs and within the quota prescribed. The DOP&T also issued circular dated 19.01.2007 to distribute the vacancies as per the quota prescribed in the RRs. A perusal of said OM also makes it clear that all the cadres are required to fill up vacancies by using vacancy based roster. Copy of relevant instructions are annexed as ANNEXURE A-9. 

4.23 That the calculation of the vacancies as referred above was required to be done by applying vacancy based roster. when the vacancy based roster is applied, only 25% vacancies of Assistant Director occurred after 01.05.2015 can be filled up by way of direct recruitment and the remaining vacancies are required to be filled up by promotion. However, the respondents have advertised 50 vacancies to be filled up by direct recruitment quota. If against 25% quota the respondents allocated 50 vacancies to DR quota, minimum 150 vacancies were required to be given for promotion. However, the respondents have not given even a single vacancy for promotion after amendment in RRs. Therefore immediate intervention of this Hon'ble Tribunal is warranted on the following amongst other grounds:- 

5. GROUNDS:
-Because the respondents have failed to consider that as per DOP&T OM No. AB-14017/18/2000- Estt. (RR) dated 12.01.2007, the vacancies arose at particular point of time are required to be filled up as per the quota prescribed under the relevant rules and all the available vacancies cannot be given to one quota. If the respondents found 50 vacancies for 25% quota, minimum 150 vacancies should have been given to promotion quota as per the statutory Recruitment Rules wherein, it has been provided that 75% shall be filled up through promotion and 25% by direct recruitment. 

-Because the respondents have given no justification for giving 50 vacancies for direct recruitment quota and not even a single vacancy for promotion quota after 01.05.2015. In fact, the respondents have not conducted DPC for vacancy year 2015-16. If the respondents had acted as per statutory RRs and conducted DPCs timely, the applicants would have got promotion as Assistant Director being covered within available vacancies of Assistant Director. 

-Because the respondents have wrongly treated the available vacancies for DR quota. As per the DOP&T instructions and settled law position, in the matter of promotion and recruitment vacancy based roster is required to be followed and this Hon'ble Tribunal has also viewed so in the case of Pradeep Kumar Tyagi & Ors. In the said case, the Hon'ble Tribunal had directed to fill up the available four vacancies in the ratio of 50:50 as per statutory Recruitment Rules and not by only one quota i.e. deputation. Copy of said judgment dated 11.02.2014 is annexed as Annexure A-10. 

-Because the respondents action in issuing advertisement to fill up the vacancies of Assistant Director, (CSOLS) by way of direct recruitment is contrary to the mandate of OM dated 12.09.2011 wherein, it was clearly provided that the resultant vacancies of the various cadres are required to be filled up by way of promotion based upon seniority cum fitness and hence. 

-Because while not filling the resultant vacancies in accordance with the mandate of para 2 of OM dated 12.09.2011, the respondents have erred in law as well as facts. It is strange that the respondents are not following their own decisions in the matter of filling up vacancies of Assistant Director. 

-Because the fact cannot be ignored that in the OM dated 12.09.2011, in consultation with DOP&T, it was specifically decided to fill up the resultant vacancies in all the grades by way of promotion on the basis of seniority-cum-fitness with the approval of DOP&T. When the decision was taken to fill up the vacancies of Assistant Director created on account of cadre restructuring by way of promotion, how could the said vacancies be filled up by direct recruitment. 

-Because the respondents have acted in most arbitrary and unjustified manner as when the issue regarding filling up all the vacancies of Assistant Director till the notification of new RRs as well as the vacancies became available due to cadre restructuring were required to be fill up by way of promotion was under consideration, how could all of sudden, the advertisement be issued to fill up the vacancies meant for promotion by way of direct recruitment. 

-Because it is clear from the respondents own documents that out of 65 normal vacancies, only 15 vacancies were consumed for Adhoc promotion and remaining 50 vacancies reserved for direct recruitment without any justification. 

8. RELIEF SOUGHT: 
 For the facts and circumstances stated in above, it is most respectfully prayed that their lordship of this Tribunal would be pleased:- 

 (a) To declare the action of the respondents in not filling up available vacancies of Assistant Director by promotion as per the quota prescribed in the Recruitment Rules and notifying the 50 vacancies for filling up by way of direct recruitment, as illegal and arbitrary. 

(b) To declare the action of respondents in filling up 50 vacancies of Assistant Director by way of direct recruitment and not making promotions in the equal proportionate as per RRs amongst Sr. Translator as illegal and arbitrary and issue appropriate directions to fill up all the available vacancies of Assistant Director up to 30.04.2015 by way of promotion in the ratio of 75:25 as prescribed in the statutory Recruitment Rules notified and implemented w.e.f. 01.05.2015. 

(c) To direct the respondents to calculate the vacancies of Assistant Director correctly and fill up the same strictly as per the prescribed quota in the RRs by considering the claim of applicants as well as other eligible officers.

(d) To quash and set aside the impugned advertisement No. 12/2015 and issue further directions to fill up all the vacancies of Assistant Director as per the quota prescribed in the RRs. 

(e) To allow the O.A. with costs. 

(f) Pass such other direction or directions order or orders as this Hon’ble Tribunal may deem fit and proper to meet the ends of justice. 

INTERIM RELIEF. 
Not prayed at this stage.

नियमितीकरण और पदोन्नति मुद्दे पर कैट में सुनवाई 6 अप्रैल को

साथियो,
संवर्ग पुनर्सरचना के क्रियान्वयन के फलस्वरूप वरिष्ठ अनुवादक से सहायक निदेशकों के पद पर दी गई तदर्थ पदोन्नतियों को नियमित करने (वरीयता सूची में पहले स्थान पर श्री राजेश तनेजा से लेकर 160 वे स्थान पर श्री झारखण्डे सिंह तक) और तत्पश्चात सहायक निदेशक के पद पर दिनांक 30.04.2015 तक की सभी रिक्तियों को प्रमोशन द्वारा भरने के लिए माननीय केंद्रीय प्रशासनिक अधिकरण (CAT) द्वारा O.A संख्या 206 /2016 पर दिनांक 15.01.2016 को दिए गए निर्णय के अनुसार राजभाषा विभाग को इस O.A के अनुलग्नक A-5 पर विचार हेतु दो माह का समय दिया गया था, लेकिन इसी बीच UPSC द्वारा 50 पदों पर सीधी भर्ती की प्रक्रिया पर तेजी से कार्रवाई करने के मद्देनजर उक्त O.A संख्या 206 /2016 की समान विषय वस्तु (with cosmetic changes) के आधार पर 42 नए आवेदकों (तदर्थ सहायक निदेशक) के साथ एक नया वाद O.A संख्या 843/2016 दिनांक 26.02.2016 फाईल कराया गया था, जिस पर एडमिशन हेतु दिनांक 01.03.2016 को सुनवाई हुई थी। 

मूल याचिका O.A संख्या 843/2016 के महत्वपूर्ण बिंदु निम्नवत हैं :
 (i) Impugned Advertisement No. 12/2015 issued by UPSC vide which the recruitment of Assistant Directors to fill up 50 vacancies has been issued. 

4.7 That since the restructuring order has been issued to remove the stagnation in the Central Secretariat Official Language Service (CSOLS) under Department of Official Language, such posts were to be filled up without holding positive act of selection which involved only scrutiny of service records of the senior most staff, subject to rejection of unfit. That, the matter was considered at length in the Ministry of Home Affairs and it was decided at the Apex level that all these resultant vacancies have to be filed up by promotion in order of seniority. 

4.9 That it is also relevant to notice that vide aforesaid order dated 10-2- 2012, the respondents promoted 60 more Senior Translators to the post of ad hoc Assistant Director making the total strength of ad hoc Assistant Directors to 160, where Shri Jharkhandey Singh is the junior most. (circulated Seniority list of 160 ad hoc Assistant Directors attached). 48 out of 160 ad hoc Assistant Directors are said to be covered in DPC held in April 2015 for their regularization for pre -cadre review period (i.e. vacancy year 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11) as per reply given under Right to Information Act. (Attached) and remaining net 112 ad hoc Assistant Directors considered/counted against resultant vacancies. It is not understood as to why the promotions made against resultants vacancies and by following the due procedure have been treated as Adhoc. 

4.10 That being aggrieved by the said action of respondents, the applicants requested to treat the adhoc promotions as regular promotions as per their own decisions and the settled legal position 

4.11 That the applicants had also submitted relevant documents to prove that Ministry of Home Affairs had also approved the proposal of filling up the resultant vacancies of restructuring by promotion only. The said decision of the Ministry of Home Affairs had the approval of the Ministry of Finance as well. 

4.12 That after getting aforesaid information, the respondents had no reasons to treat the promotions as Adhoc. However, the respondents remained adamant and did not take necessary steps to treat the promotion of applicants as regular. Considering the aforesaid conduct of the respondents, the applicants submitted representations in 2014 and the last representation was given on 22.05.2014. After receipt of said representation/letter, the respondents sent a response dated 12.06.2014 wherein it was stated that 50 post of Assistant Director shall be filled up by direct recruitment through Union Public Service Commission. The said information was conveyed to the Association and the decision was sought to be substantiated by stating that stagnation was said to be set off by orders of the government giving the provision of ACP and MACP. 

4.13 That in fact, both the aforesaid decisions conveyed vide letter dt. 12.6.2014 are erroneous because provision of ACP/MACP can not be equated with the provision of promotion, particularly those promotions which are by way of restructuring to remove the stagnation. Secondly, the decision of the respondents to fill up 50 of resultant vacancies by direct recruitment is also erroneous because the resultant posts have arisen as a result of restructuring order which was passed by the government in order to remove the stagnation and in this view of the matter, the action of the respondents by deciding to fill up 50 of the vacancies by direct recruitment is like giving by one hand and taking it by the other. The question of filling up the resultant vacancies was not only arbitrary but was also illegal inasmuch as, when the Ministry of Home Affairs with the approval of Ministry of Finance had decided to fill up the resultant vacancies by way of promotion only, how could the subordinate authority decide to fill up 50 resultant vacancies by way of direct recruitment. 

4.14 That the respondents appeared to be oblivious of the fact that in case 50 out of resultant vacancies as a result of restructuring are filled up by direct recruitment, then the very purpose for which the restructuring order was passed would be defeated. 

4.15 That it is also relevant to notice that the respondent’s vide their letter dt. 12.6.2014 reveals that they had initiated the DPC proceedings asking APAR of 98 Senior Translators vide their O.M. No. 15/15/2013-O.L (Service) dated 29.01.2014 to fill up 65 posts of Assistant Director lying vacant at that point of time on ad hoc arrangement in the same manner as that of resultant vacancies for want of recruitment rules being the post upgraded from group ”B” to group “A” by the 6th CPC. Respondent/DPC cleared only 15 promotions out of 65 and took illogical decision very late in year 2014 to fill up 50 posts by direct recruitment. Had these vacancies been filled up, complete revised strength would have been once filled up by ad hoc arrangement in the same manner as that of resultant vacancies. 

4.17 That before the issue of aforesaid advertisement the applicant made several representation dated 24.06.2015 and 10.07.2015 through Association to ensure that before resorting to direct recruitment as per the new RRs notified in 2015 the vacancies became available under the old RRs are filled up by way of promotion. In fact, vide notification dated 01.05.2015 the respondents amended the RRs for the post of Assistant Director and categorized the same as group “A” post in the scale of Rs. 15600-39100 with grade pay of Rs. 5400. Since before making aforesaid amendment, the post was categorised as group “B” and in the advertisement the same was shown as group “A”, the respondents were required to ensure that only new vacancies occurred after notification of RRs are filled up. However, the respondents acted arbitrarily and decided to give 50 vacancies from the newly created vacancies to the direct recruits and that too by violating the settled legal position that the vacancies occurred under old RRs can not be filled up by new RRs. 

4.20 That being aggrieved by the said arbitrary action of the respondents the applicants submitted representation on 25.01.2016 through Dinesh Kumar Singh, President of central Secretariat Official Language Service Translators Association for rectifying the said illegality and to pass necessary orders regarding regularization of Adhoc service as well as filling of 112 resultant vacancies by considering the Adhoc A.D appearing up to the name of Sh. Jharkhande Singh (Seniority No. 160). 

 5. GROUNDS
A. Because the respondents have acted in most arbitrary and unjustified manner inasmuch as, on one hand they have not regularized the promotion of applicants as Assistant Director and on other hand issued advertisement No. 12/2015. 

B. Because when the applicants were promoted as Adhoc Assistant Director by following the same procedure as followed while making regular promotion, after examining their eligibility and suitability asper rules and against clear vacancies, the respondents were required to treat the promotion of applicants as regular. The Hon’ble Apex Court has also ruled so in the following cases:- 
(a) Direct Recruit Class-II Engineering Officers Association & Ors. Vs State 
(b) State of W.B & Ors. V. Aghore Nath Dey & Ors., (1993) 3 SCC 371 
(c) N.K Chauhan & Ors. V. State of Gujarat, AIR 1977 SCC 251[Paras 30 to 
(d) S.B. Patwardhan V. State of Maharashtra, (1977) 3 SCC 399 [Paras 39 
(e) Baleshwar Das V. State of U.P., (1980) 4 SCC 226 [Paras 30 to 36]. 
(f) A. Janardhan V. Union of India, (1983) 3 SCC 601 [Paras 38 & 34]. 
(g) B.S Mathur & Anr. V. Union of India, (2008) 10 SCC 271 [Paras 12, 39, 
(h) Sunil Kumar Mehra V. M.C.D. & Anr., WP 

(C) Because when the sufficient vacancies of Assistant Director were available and the applicants were fully qualified and eligible in terms of RRs for promotion and there was no dispute about their seniority in the feeder category, respondents were not justified in not granting regular promotion to the applicants as Assistant Director and promoting them on Adhoc basis. The applicants were required to be promoted as Assistant Director on regular basis. 

F. Because while not filling the resultant vacancies in accordance with the mandate of para 2 of OM dated 12.09.2011, the respondents have erred in law as well as facts. It is strange that the respondents are not following their own decisions in the matter of filling up vacancies of Assistant Director. 

H. Because the respondents have failed to consider that in respect of similar cadre restructuring in the cadre of Central Secretariat Stenographer Service, in terms of order dated 27.01.2011, similar provision was made for filling up the resultant vacancies through seniority quota as a one time measure but no objection was raised by any official because the order dated 27.01.2011 was issued by DOP&T itself. 

I. Because the respondents have acted in most arbitrary and unjustified manner as when the issue regarding filling up all the vacancies of Assistant Director till the notification of new RRs as well as the vacancies became available due to cadre restructuring were required to be fill up by way of promotion was under consideration, how could all of the sudden, the advertisement be issued to fill up the vacancies meant for promotion by way of direct recruitment. 

K. Because it is clear from the respondents own documents that out of 65 normal vacancies, only 15 vacancies were consumed for Adhoc promotion and remaining 50 vacancies reserved for direct recruitment without any justification. Even the process of regularization of 56 and then 17 Adhoc Assistant Directors was initiated against the normal vacancy year 2012-13 and not the resultant vacancy year 2011-12 as evident from office memorandum dated 13.05.2015 & 31.08.2015. 

 8. RELIEFS SOUGHT : 
For the facts and circumstances stated in above, it is most respectfully prayed that their lordship of this Tribunal would be pleased:- 
(a) To declare the action of the respondents in not regularizing the promotion of applicants as Assistant Director from the date of grant of Adhoc promotion as illegal and arbitrary and direct the respondents to regularize the Adhoc promotion and fix the seniority of applicants as Assistant Director from the date of Adhoc promotion with all consequential benefits.. 

(b) To declare the action of the respondents in filling up 50 vacancies of Assistant Director created due to cadre restructuring by way of Direct recruitment as illegal and set aside the impunged advertisement No. 12/2015 and issue further directions to fill up all the vacancies of Assistant Director created on account of cadre restructuring and regular vacancies till the notification of new RRs dated 01.05.2015 by promotion.. 

(c) To allow the O.A with costs. 

(d) Pass such other direction or directions order or orders as this Hon’ble Tribunal may deem fit and proper to meet the ends of justice

9. INTERIM RELIEF
Pending final adjudication of the OA, it is humbly prayed that this Hon’ble Tribunal may be pleased to restrain the respondents from finalising the selection to the post of Assistant Director as per Advertisement No. 12/2015. In case, the interim stay is not granted, the applicants would suffer irreparable loss as the UPSC has already fixed the date of exam as 20.03.2016.

सचिव को विस्तृत अभ्यावेदन सौपा गया

संवर्ग पुनर्संरचना के आदेश संख्या 15/3/2005-OL(S) दिनांक 12.09.2011 के पैरा 2 में दिए गए अनुमोदन के अनुसरण में सहायक निदेशक के स्तर पर परिणामी रिक्तियों (Resultant Vacancies) के 112 पदों को Seniority के माध्यम से promotion द्वारा भरने के संबंध में राजभाषा विभाग में अनावश्यक रूप से पैदा हुई गलत अवधारणा को समाप्त करने के लिए अनुवादक एसोसिएशन द्वारा सचिव, राजभाषा विभाग को दिनांक 14 जनवरी, 2016 को हुई बैठक हेतु बहुमूल्य समय देने के लिए आभार प्रकट करते उन्हें दिनांक 25 जनवरी, 2016 को एक बिस्तृत अभ्यावेदन सौपा गया है, जिसमें उन्हें निम्नलिखित तथ्यों की जानकारी दी गई- 

1.0 सहायक निदेशक के स्तर पर परिणामी रिक्तियों के 112 पदों को Seniority के माध्यम से promotion द्वारा भरने के लिये भर्ती नियम - 2006 में किसी प्रकार का संशोंधन करने की कदापि आवश्यकता नहीं है, और न ही किसी प्रकार के Executive Orders जारी करने की आवश्यकता हैI 

2.0 जहाँ तक सामान्य रिक्तियों (Normal Vacancies) को भरने के लिए भर्ती नियम -2006 में भर्ती के तरीके (अर्थात Promotion-50% : Direct Recruitment-50%) के प्रावधान का संबंध है, वह संबंधित वर्ष की सामान्य रिक्तियों (Normal Vacancies) को भरने के लिए भी लागू नहीं होते हैं, क्‍योंकि छठे वेतन आयोग की सिफारिशों के अनुसार सहायक निदेशक (रा.भा.) के पद को ग्रुप ‘ए’ में रखा गया था, जबकि विभाग के पास भर्ती नियम ग्रुप ‘बी’ पद के लिए उपलब्‍ध है, जोकि ग्रुप ‘ए’ पद के लिए लागू नहीं होते हैं। 

3.0 सामान्य रिक्तियों (Normal Vacancies) को भरने के लिए दिनांक 12.09.2011 से 30.04.2015 (नए भर्ती नि‍यम, 2015 के अध‍सिूचित होने के पूर्व) तक की मध्यावधि (intervening period) के लिए भर्ती के तरीके में संशोधन के लिए Executive Orders जारी करने का अनुरोध एसोसिएशन अपने दिनांक 10 जुलाई 2015 के पत्र संख्या CSOLSTA/56/1/2012 के तहत पहले ही कर चुकी है, ताकि संवर्ग पुनर्संरचना के क्रियान्वयन के बाद सृजित होने वाली सामान्य रिक्तियों को समिति की सिफरिशों (अर्थात Promotion-75% : Direct Recruitment-25%) के अनुसार भरा जा सके I 

4.0 परिणामी रिक्तियों को भरने के तरीके (100% by Promotion) को सामान्य रिक्तियों (Normal Vacancies) के प्रतिशत (50% by Promotion) से जोड़ना इस संबध में भारत सरकार की तमाम केंद्रीय सेवाओं में अपनाई जा रही प्रकिया का उल्लंघन है I 

5.0 CSSS की संवर्ग पुनर्संरचना- 2011 के मूल पुनर्संरचना आदेश और CSOLS की संवर्ग पुनर्संरचना- 2011 के मूल पुनर्संरचना आदेश दोनों में ही परिणामी रिक्तियों को Seniority के माध्यम से promotion द्वारा भरने तथा भर्ती नियमों में संशोधन करने का समान रूप से अनुमोंदन किया गया है I उल्लेखनीय है कि CSSS की संवर्ग पुनर्संरचना- 2011 के क्रियान्वयन में परिणामी रिक्तियों को भरने के लिए भर्ती नियमों में कोई संशोंधन नहीं किये गए है और न ही किसी प्रकार के Executive Orders जारी किये गए है, क्योंकि संवर्ग पुनर्संरचना के मूल आदेश में ही परिणामी रिक्तियों का प्रावधान किया गया है I CSSS की संवर्ग पुनर्संरचना- 2011 के सिर्फ मूल आदेश के आधार पर परिणामी रिक्तियां भरी गई है I इस बात का सत्यापन कार्मिक और प्रशिक्षण विभाग (DOPT) के CS.II Division से भली – भांति किया जा सकता है I 

6.0 यह भी वास्तविकता है कि CSS की संवर्ग पुनर्संरचना -2003 और CSSS की संवर्ग पुनर्संरचना -2005 के क्रियान्वयन के तहत Executive Orders जारी किये गए थे, क्योंकि इन संवर्ग पुनर्संरचनाओं के मूल आदेशों में परिणामी रिक्तियों के प्रावधानों का उल्लेख नहीं था I 

7.0 वरिष्ठ अनुवादक की दिनांक 29.05.2015 की वरिष्ठता सूची में प्रथम स्थान पर श्री राजेश तनेजा और 160 वें स्थान पर श्री झारखंडे सिंह है I इनमें से 48 वरिष्ठ अनुवादकों को संवर्ग पुनर्संरचना से पूर्व की अवधि ( रिक्ति वर्ष 2008-09, 2009-10 और 2010-11 ) के विरूद्ध सहायक निदेशक के पद पर पदोन्नति (now regularisation) के लिए मई, 2015 में हुई डीपीसी में कवर किया जा चुका है (विश्वस्त सूत्रों के अनुसार ) तथा शेष 112 वरिष्ठ अनुवादकों को CSOLS की संवर्ग पुनर्संरचना - 2011 में सृजित हुई 112 परिणामी रिक्तियों के विरूद्ध रिक्ति वर्ष 2011-12 में ही तत्कालीन सचिव महोदय के विवेक और अनुमोदन से तदर्थ आधार पर पहले ही प्रोन्नत किया जा चुका है I  
8.0 परिणामी रिक्तियों को एक बारगी उपाय के रूप में संवर्ग पुनर्संरचना वर्ष में ही भरना होता है, अर्थात en bloc seniority/en bloc promotion for stagnating employees अर्थात no interpolation with DR quota अर्थात not applicability of DR/PR ratio (percentage) in existing recruitment rules,

अन्यथा इस संवर्ग पुनर्संरचना में परिणामी रिक्तियों के वाजिब हकदार वरिष्ठ अनुवादकों (वर्तमान में तदर्थ सहायक निदेशक) की अगली पदोन्नतियां समाप्त हो जायेगी और उनके साथ सीधी भर्ती के अभ्यर्थियों का अनावश्यक रूप से interpolation होने की दशा में इस संवर्ग पुनर्संरचना का मूल उद्देश्य ही पूर्णत: समाप्त हो जाएगा I

9.0 वर्ष 2027 तक अर्थात मात्र 11 वर्षों बाद सीधी भर्ती से आने वाले अभ्यर्थियों में से 18 अभ्यर्थी निदेशक के पदों पर और शेष संयुक्त निदेशक के पदों पर काबिज हो जायेंगे I यह स्थिति इस संवर्ग में अब तक के सबसे बड़े उपचारहीन stagnation को जन्म देगी I

10.0 चार वर्षों से लम्बित इस संवर्ग पुनर्संरचना के क्रियान्वयन के प्रथम वर्ष (अर्थात Resultant vacancy year 2011-12 ) की रिक्तियों के लिए वरिष्‍ठ अनुवादक से सहायक निदेशक के पद पर की जाने वाली 102 पदोन्‍नतियों (वस्‍तुत: तदर्थ सहायक निदेशकों का नियमितिकरण) में 112 परिणामी रिक्तियों में से केवल 34 रिक्तियां शामिल हैं, अंत: इन 34 पदोन्‍नतियों के साथ संवर्ग पुनर्सरचना का क्रियान्‍वयन करने से यह अन्‍याय की एक मिसाल बनेगी ।

11.0 संवर्ग पुनर्संरचना-2011 के आदेश के अनुसरण में 112 परिणामी रिक्तियों पर वरिष्ठता सूची में 160 वें स्थान पर श्री झारखंडे सिंह तक विचार किये गए 112 तदर्थ सहायक निदेशकों को संवर्ग पुनर्संरचना का क्रियान्वयन इसकी मूल भावना के अनुरूप परिणामी रिक्‍ति वर्ष 2011-12 की रिक्तियों के विरूद्ध नियमित किया जाय I

कैट ने विभाग को दो माह के भीतर कार्रवाई का निर्देश दिया

अनुवादकों की पदोन्नति के लिए दायर मामले में कैट,नई दिल्ली ने राजभाषा विभाग को याचिका में उठाए गए मुद्दों पर दो  माह के भीतर कार्रवाई करने का निर्देश दिया है। अदालती आदेश में 10 जुलाई,2015 के पत्र का संदर्भ दिया गया है। साथियों की सहूलियत के लिए उस पत्र की प्रति भी यहां दी जा रही है ताकि वे पूरे प्रकरण को ठीक से समझ सकें और अदालती फैसले को समग्रता में देख सकें। एसोसिएशन इस अदालती आदेश के मद्देनज़र, समुचित तथा त्वरित कार्रवाई हेतु विभाग को अलग से भी एक  अभ्यावेदन दे रहा है। इस मामले में समस्त कार्रवाइयों से संवर्ग को अवगत रखा जाएगा।






सचिव राजभाषा का पारदर्शिता बनाए रखने का आश्वासन

एसोसिएशन ने राजभाषा विभाग में अनुवादकों की लम्बित मांगों को लेकर 14 जनवरी,2016 को सचिव(राजभाषा) से मुलाक़ात की। बैठक में सचिव महोदय को कनिष्ठ और वरिष्ठ अनुवादकों की पदोन्नति तथा सहायक निदेशकों के नियमितीकरण में हो रहे विलम्ब से कैडर में जारी ठहराव की स्थिति से अवगत कराया गया तथा एसोसिएशन ने इससे आगे की पदोन्नति पर पड़ने वाले प्रभावों पर चिंता व्यक्त की। रिक्तियों और संवर्ग में नियमितीकरण आदि की मौजूदा स्थिति को अधिक स्पष्टता से जानने के लिए सचिव महोदय ने बैठक के बीच में ही कंसल्टेंट के तौर पर सेवा अनुभाग  का कार्य देख रहे श्री भाटिया को बुलाया तथा उनसे अद्यतन जानकारी मांगी। चर्चा के दौरान एसोसिएशन ने अपना पक्ष खुलकर सामने रखा जिससे सचिव महोदय भी सहमत दिखे। कुछ अन्य रिक्तियों को भी पथांतरित कर वरिष्ठ अनुवादकों को पदोन्नत करने के लिए फाइल कार्मिक और प्रशिक्षण विभाग को भेजने पर सहमति बनी। अंत में, सचिव महोदय ने श्री भाटिया को निर्देश दिया कि वे एसोसिएशन के साथ मिलकर मुख्य मुद्दे सुलझा लें और वरिष्ठ अनुवादकों तथा पदानुक्रम में अन्य लोगों को भी उनका उचित हक़ मिले ताकि विभाग की पारदर्शिता बनी रहे और यह संदेश न जाए कि विभाग गुपचुप तरीक़े से कोई काम कर रहा है।

बैठक में,श्री दिनेश कुमार सिंह,श्री अजय कुमार झा, श्री राजकुमार रावत, श्रीमती रीता,श्री राकेश मलिक और श्री कुमार राधारमण मौजूद थे।
