Draft amendment in Recruitment Rules for the Post of Research Assistant, Junior Research Assistant and Computor in Pay Research Unit of this department

This is regarding amendment to be made in the Recruitment Rules for the post of Research Assistant, Junior Research Assistant and Computor in Pay Research Unit of this department. RRs for the post of Research Assistant were last notified on 24.07.2007 and for the posts of Junior Research Assistant and Computor, they were last notified on 25.08.2006.
The staff of Pay Research Unit has very limited scope of promotion since the promotion of the staff has not been linked to any regular service/cadre. Sh. Umesh Kumar Saini, Computor has almost rendered 18-19 years of service and got no promotion except MACPs. Smt. Simmi Takkar, Junior Research Assistant has got her promotion after rendering 19 years of service at the post of Computor and for further promotion she has to wait for the retirement of incumbent present in the promotional grade i.e, Research Assistant and further to meet the eligibility criterion of qualifying service of that post. There has not been any direct recruitment for all these posts for the last 10 years, therefore, it is presumed that this is a dying cadre.
To streamline the cadre, it would be in the interest of department as well as incumbents if we change the Method of recruitment in the RR for the post of Research Assistant to “50% by Promotion, failing which by deputation and 50% by direct recruitment failing which by Promotion failing which by deputation” and Junior Research Assistant to “100% by Promotion failing which by deputation”. By doing this, the incumbent who is stagnated at any particular post will be promoted and need not wait for the retirement/promotion of the incumbent present in the promotional grade.
