Upgrading of Recruitment Rules


Several Government departments have failed to meet the deadline fixed by none else than the Chief Secretary for conduct of all pending Departmental Promotion Committee meetings and completion of pending Regular Departmental Actions/Inquiries. Moreover, there is no major progress on updation of Recruitment Rules, which otherwise is an imperative exercise to meet the existing functional requirement of each department. Ever since BVR Subrahmanyam took over as Chief Secretary of the State human resource management and development remained his priority and in numerous meetings of the Committee of Secretaries he called for comprehensive measures to bring up a highly motivated workforce in the State Government departments to attain the desired level of service delivery. A number of times, it was made clear that Government's strategy on human resource development involves career progression, capacity building and promoting professionalism which in turn would ensure better results from the employees to ensure speedy movement forward on the Governor Administration's Delivering Good Governance mission and he even identified holding of Departmental Promotion Committee meetings, updation of Recruitment Rules and completion of Regular Departmental Actions for immediate attention in all the Government departments.
In order to translate his vision about human resource management into reality, the Chief Secretary even established a cell in the General Administration Department and got detailed department-wise exercise conducted by deputing Additional Secretary rank officer. All the departments were given action points on almost all the vital aspects to move towards achieving the goal of better human resource management. The Monitoring and Personnel Management Wing of the General Administration Department dashed a communication to all the departments conveying that Chief Secretary has desired all the Administrative Secretaries to conduct all pending Departmental Promotion Committee meetings and complete all pending Regular Departmental Actions/ Inquiries by April 30, 2019.
However, several departments have failed to meet this deadline and only few have made noticeable progress on the directions of the Chief Secretary, while there is some progress on holding of Departmental Promotion Committee meetings albeit not up to the satisfaction, there is absolutely no noteworthy development as far as completion of pending Regular Departmental Actions/ Inquiries is concerned. Large number of Regular Departmental Actions and Inquiries are pending for disposal even after the intervention from the High Court, which while dealing with a Public Interest Litigation, had passed numerous directions from time to time asking the Government to ensure monitoring of disposal at the highest level to achieve the desirable results.
