Central Administrative Tribunal: Madras Bench
Wednesday, the 24th day of March 2004 (24-3-2004)
1. UOI rep. by the Director General
2. As mentioned earlier, A-1 got his HSG.II only on 17-2-2003. For getting the promotion to the next higher grade, viz. HSG.I he is required to put in three years of service in that grade. Thus this applicant becomes eligible for promotion to the next higher grade, viz. HSG.I only after 17-2-2006. Under these circumstances we do not think that he is justified in approaching this Tribunal at this stage seeking promotion to HSG.I or challenging the new RRs at this point of time. That apart, when he is not even eligible for consideration of promotion we are of the considered view that the applicant can hardly challenge the RRs. Therefore in far as A-1 is concerned, there is no case.
3. Applicant No. 2 (A-2 for short) has come before this Tribunal representing that he belongs to the Postal Employees Union and therefore he may be permitted to join as A-2 applicant association. It is stated that the A-2 has joined along with other in this OA in order to protect the interests of the other Gr. C employees who are similarly placed like the A-1.
dated 24-1-2002. Thereafter, the respondents have announced the departmental examination only in 2003. As of now, the full impact of the RRs is not yet known. We further of the considered
view that the Union as of now can hardly interfere in a generalised manner in matter relating to promotions, where the eligibility criteria stipulated the number of years as one of the basic qualifications.
This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue?
