People's Review - - NEWS - By Our Re­porter

Civil ser­vants who were bar­gain­ing with the govern­ment for an au­to­matic pro­mo­tion be­fore their dep­u­ta­tion in the lo­cal bodies will not get such pro­mo­tion. The civil ser­vants have been hes­i­tat­ing to go to work in the lo­cal lev­els as they will not re­sort to cor­rupt prac­tices as in the district level of­fices. A meet­ing of the State Af­fairs sub­com­mit­tee un­der the Leg­is­la­ture Par­lia­ment re­cently re­jected the de­mand for one level pro­mo­tion to the civil ser­vants to be de­ployed in the lo­cal lev­els. With the de­ci­sion the civil ser­vants are to be ad­justed in the lo­cal lev­els (units) will not be get­ting a one-level pro­mo­tion be­fore they are de­puted in the con­cerned lo­cal lev­els. The civil ser­vants have been de­mand­ing a pro­mo­tion by one level be­fore they are de­puted in the lo­cal level gov­ern­ments. The Sub-com­mit­tee has en­dorsed the re­port of the ‘Civil Ser­vant Ad­just­ment Bill' with­out ad­dress­ing the civil ser­vants' de­mand for a pro­mo­tion by one level. The re­port, in­clud­ing the draft bill, will be tabled at the full meet­ing of the Com­mit­tee on Septem­ber 23 (Sun­day) for dis­cus­sion. Ac­cord­ing to sub-com­mit­tee mem­ber Ramesh­wor Phuyal, the re­port to­gether with the bill will now be tabled at the full meet­ing of the State Af­fairs Com­mit­tee for fi­nal en­dorse­ment. “We have re­jected the civil ser­vants' de­mand for a onelevel pro­mo­tion be­fore they get ad­justed in the lo­cal level struc­ture,” Phuyal said. The sub-com­mit­tee, also re­jected the pro­posal of not trans­fer­ring, pro­mot­ing em­ploy­ees and cre­at­ing new va­can­cies for a year un­til the ad­just­ment of the civil ser­vants was con­cluded. This pro­posal had been in­cluded in the main bill. The com­mit­tee re­moved this pro­vi­sion. The Pub­lic Ser­vice Com­mis­sion had also ob­jected to this pro­vi­sion. Like­wise, var­i­ous trade unions and civil ser­vants unions were also against this pro­vi­sion in­serted in the main bill. The sub-com­mit­tee has also in­cluded a pro­vi­sion of vol­un­tary re­tire­ment for the em­ploy­ees who have worked for 20 years or are above 50 years. Any­one en­joy­ing this fa­cil­ity can get a pen­sion of seven years in one go.
