Plus 2 Lecturers apprise DyCM of their time bound promotion demand

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, May 16: A delegation of All J&K Plus-2 Lecturers’ Forum under the leadership of president Deepak Sharma called on Deputy Chief Minister Kavinder Gupta and discussed at length the burning issue of non-sanctioning of Running Grade/Time Bound Promotion in favour of Plus-2 Lecturers.
The delegation also submitted a memorandum and apprised that absence of the same has caused worst type of stagnation in the Plus-2 cadre and has been enjoyed by all the cadres working in pre-revised scale of 8000-13500 except Lecturers.
Deepak Sharma apprised the Deputy CM that the Forum has been struggling since long to achieve the benefit of Running Grade/Time Bound Promotion but same has not been sanctioned inspite of the fact that there was a budgetary provision for the same in the shape of Assured Career Progression Scheme (ACP) for all the Gazetted Cadres including Plus-2 Lecturers.
The delegation said the Forum was happy that the Time Bound Promotion has been sanctioned to KAS and KPS officers and Assured Career Progression to Engineers, but at the same time alleged that Govt. has meted out step motherly treatment to Plus-2 Lecturers as only they have been left out. The Forum  hoped that ACP would soon be accorded to them on the analogy of Gazetted Cadre of Engineers i.e. three Time Bound Promotions within a span of 20 years of service, though earlier they had applied for three time bound promotion @7,5 and 5 years.
The delegation sought Deputy CM’s personal intervention in according sanction to Time Bound Promotion/ACP in favour of Plus-2 Lecturers and hoped that he would use his good office and impress upon his Cabinet colleagues to eradicate about 24 years of stagnation in a single grade of lecturers.
The delegation comprised of N S Jamwal, Anil Sharma, R S Slathia, Sanjay Bhagat and Dr Ashok.
