Harassment of DDOs and Accounts section Staff of the HPOs by the Circle Administation- Letter from the CHQ to the Department

It is reported that Andhra Circle Administration had issued instructions to recover from the DDOs who have paid bonus to GDS on enhanced bonus ceiling. In this connection, my union wishes to point out that the department at the first instance issued orders that the bonus ceiling announced by the Government is not applicable to GDS employees, but subsequently issued another order superseding the first letter to satisfy some Union leaders. After the receipt of this letter, the DDOs had drawn and disbursed bonus to GDS on enhanced ceiling. However, again the department clarified that the enhanced ceiling is applicable only to the Departmental employees and not to the GDS. Thereafter, the DDOs started recovering the excess paid amount. In the meantime, some GDS approached CAT and obtained a stay order for recovery.

Now, the Chief PMG, A.P Circle had issued instructions to initiate disciplinary action against the DDOs and Accountants. The action of the Chief PMG is unjustified since the bonus on enhanced ceiling was paid on account of the second letter issued by the Directorate. If this second letter was not issued, no body would have paid bonus to GDS on enhanced ceiling.

My Union urges that the Chief PMG, Andhra may be advised to drop the disciplinary proceedings contemplated against the DDOs and Accountants.

My Union shall be thankful for urgent action and a line in reply.
Yours sincerely,
