By the Way

Senseless conventions

img-oct2014-31Administration of the human resource within the government is a complex web. The services, especially civil service officers, are explicitly managed by the Service Rule Book but there are often issues where no solution can be found in the rule book. For example, an officer who is on compulsory wait for a new posting does not get a salary for the waiting period. How does he manage? He gets the salary with retrospective effect as and when he is posted in any department of the Government of India. There are hundreds of IAS, IPS and other civil services officers who are put on compulsory wait. Though they are provided with all amenities like a car, telephone and house, many officers are at their wits’ end on how to meet their expenses. The system is that whenever an officer is posted, the said department looks after his emoluments and other facilities. If he is not posted anywhere, there is no mechanism of paying the salaries each month. Is anybody listening?
