6.4.7 Item No. 14/19/NC-47 – Increase in Residency Period for future Promotion.
Staff Side stated that the residency period has been increased for future promotions in certain categories like Ad.min Cadre, Storekeepers which has adversely affected the staff. For example, in the pre-revised pay scale, before the 6th CPC, 16 years was the time to reach gazetted posts now it has been increased to 23 years. The residency period for future promotion may be reduced to as it was before the 6th CPC implementation.
Reply of the Official Side:
The issue has been examined. However, no example could be found in which the residency period has been increased from 16 to 23 years. In case Staff Side finds any such example, they should come up with that so the issue can further be examined.
Staff Side agreed to bring specific instance, if any, to the notice of the Official Side.
