DANICS maange more…

danics-maange-moreIn the last one month, two sets of officers—one from DANICS (Delhi Andaman and Nicobar Islands Civil Service) and another from the Central Secretariat Services—met MoS in PMO and personnel ministry Jitendra Singh to narrate their woes, demanding quick and sound solutions. For example, the 2008 batch DANICS officers who have competed eight years of service are now eligible to be inducted into the IAS, but the irony is that even 1989 batch DANICS are yet to be IAS officers. The officers expressed concern about the acute stagnation in DANICS services which, they alleged, not only leads to financial loss but also denies career growth. Many of the officers even retire without getting a chance to be IAS at all. SC and ST officers are the worst affected because many of them join the service late due to the age relaxation available to them. DANICS officers are posted on crucial administrative assignments in the Union Territory areas of Delhi, Daman, Diu, Dadra, Nagar Haveli, Andaman and Nicobar and Lakshadweep. The members of the delegation further explained to the minister that they were performing their duties in “arduous and difficult situations, but feeling disillusioned because of delay in their career progression”.
