CSS officers threaten ‘non-cooperation move’ over delay in promotions



The Central Secretariat Service Officers’ Association on Wednesday threatened a non-cooperation movement for delaying their promotion, saying it was causing them irreparable financial loss.

The CSS Forum, an association of CSS officers, wrote a letter to the Secretary of the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) informing him of their proposed movement and demanding promotion orders for eligible employees. before May 15, 2022.

It was unanimously decided at a meeting held on April 30 that all agents of the Central Secretariat Service (CSS) are now left with only one recourse, namely the non-cooperation movement, which will be launched at from May 4, 2022, the letter says.

CSS Officers will now follow the slow and lackluster attitude of our CCA i.e. CS-I DoP&T Division and observe the old procedural, slow and customary working model of the Nodal Department, however, this may going against the dynamic working principles established by this dispensation under Hon’ble MoS & Hon’ble Prime Minister who always inspires us to have original thinking and innovative ideas to improve the administrative system, he said declared.

CSS officers, who typically sit down late every day for the betterment of our country, will not work after normal business hours, which is after 5:30 p.m., the letter says.

CSS officers who are overloaded due to many vacancies and 1 CSS officer does the work of at least four officers, will work strictly according to the office procedure manual no matter what and will not perform the deceived work due of empty promotional posts, especially cabinet notes / classified cases, etc. which must be dealt with at a particular level of senior officers, he said in the letter dated May 2.

One day a week, CSS officers will wear black robes as a sign of desperation with the current work system being followed in the CS-I division, the letter states.

Additionally, even after the above steps, if the CS Division, DoP&T does not wake up from a deep sleep over the issues and if they are not resolved even by May 15, said non- cooperation will result in an indefinite pen strike throughout the center. secretariat from May 20, 2022, says the letter signed by Manmohan Verma, Secretary General of the CSS Forum.

The CSS agents constitute the backbone of the functioning of the central secretariat.

The officer corps said the CSS Officers’ Cadre Control Authority (CCA), i.e. DoPT, appears ill-prepared and deliberately creates friction in implementing its own guidelines.

The same was made clear in meetings held on this matter with DoP&T CS-I division managers who are rigid about their intention not to think dynamically and only work the old usual, slow and procedures that would make the promotions. in up-to-date CSS, the letter says.

Despite the continued pain, initiatives and assurances of Minister of State for Personnel Jitendra Singh, how is it possible that hundreds of eligible CSS officers have retired every month without promotion with irreparable financial loss to the rest of their life ? he asked.

The CSS Forum has requested a promotion for its members.

There are more than 1,900 vacancies at the section officer, under-secretary, assistant secretary and director levels against their sanctioned strength of more than 6,000, a CSS Forum member said.
