122 vacant posts of clerk to be abolished

Chandigarh, February 7
As part of its exercise to reduce the number of government employees, the Haryana Government in a significant step has decided to abolish 122 vacant posts of clerk in various departments located in the state Civil Secretariat. Also, 18 officials of the cadre of personal staff were transferred to other departments and corporations. Moreover, one superintendent, who was found surplus, had been sent on deputation, it is learnt.

Official sources said the state governmentís earlier move to retrench employees and abolish vacant posts was confined to cooperative and public sector undertakings and one of the engineering wings. While more than 2,500 employees of PSUs and cooperative sector units were retrenched, about 4,000 vacant posts in the Irrigation Department were abolished earlier.

Highly placed sources here said that the decision of the government to go in for the single-file system in the Excise and Taxation Department would also render some staff surplus. An exercise to find out the position regarding surplus employees in the Education and Vocational Education Departments was also at an advanced stage, they said.

Talking to TNS about the latest move to downsize government departments, the sources revealed that while nine posts in the cadre of superintendent had fallen vacant in the Civil Secretariat in Chandigarh recently, the government decided to fill only four of them in view of the exercise to reduce excess strength of employees.

They said that with the promotion of six superintendents and the retirement of one on November 30, seven posts of superintendent had fallen vacant. Two more posts fell vacant following the death of a person in the cadre of superintendent on November 24 and the transfer of another to the State Women Development Commission.

However, out of nine vacancies, only four were filled by promoting deputy superintendents. Ram Phal Malik, Sardari Lal, Chander Bhan Pannu and Baljit Singh were promoted superintendents on an ad hoc basis for six months with the condition that they could be reverted at any time without notice if the government took a decision to do away with these posts.

The government had earlier promoted five deputy superintendents as superintendents under similar conditions. While the latest batch of promotes was slapped with this condition, it was decided to free five superintendents promoted earlier from this condition.

The Vice-Chancellor, MDU, Major-Gen B.S. Suhag (retd) told, The Tribune that the elections to the new managing committee would be held as soon as the votersí list was updated. Mahasabha Gurukul Vidyapeeth Haryana, Bhainswal Kalan and Kanya Gurukul has nearly 13,000 voters but the list has not been updated for the past 80 years. Many of its members, he said had died or shifted residence. Thus the elections would be held after the verification of the voters, he added. The mahasabha president, Mr J.K. Sharma, said he too wanted to hold the elections at the earliest. While the votersí list was being revised, the general secretary had started the election process without his knowledge and authority, he said.
