CoSAAP welcomes govt.’s decision to cancel out-of-turn appointments

ITANAGAR, 3 Jul: The Confederation of Service Associations of Arunachal Pradesh (CoSAAP) welcomed the state government’s recent decision to cancel all the officiating/functional appointments on an out-of- turn basis in all government departments.

The state cabinet decided that all lower level functionaries will be reverted to their original substantive posts from where they were posted to higher posts on officiating/functional posts.

“This was one of the persistent demands of CoSAAP and this decision will definitely motivate the morale of the employees,” the CoSAAP said in a release.

It requested all the heads of departments to strictly follow the direction of the state government to conduct DPC within two months to regularize the adhoc/officiating/functional appointments which were done on the seniority basis.

Meanwhile, the organization urged the state government to consider the long-pending entitlements of the employees, such as house rent allowance, children education allowance, transport allowance etc. as per the recommendation of the 7th Central Pay Commission.

CoSAAP also urged the state government to scrap the National Pension Scheme (NPS) and restore the Defined Pension Scheme for its employees.
