Sub : Query about forwarding of application
I-ve got your reference from www.lawyersclubindia.com/profile.asp?member_id=98620#.U1nnEHZRZI8
Sir, I have a small query in respect of forwarding of my application. The matter is as under :
Presently, I have been working with Government of India, Ministry of Textile, Office of the Textile Commissioner, Mumbai as Assistant Director Gr. A (Gazetted)(Non-Technical) in PB-3 Rs.15600-39100 with GP Rs.5400/-. I want to apply for the post of Personnel Officer in the same Pay Band and GP with Surat Municipal Corporation, Surat, Gujarat because Surat is my hometown and my family stays there. My posting is Mumbai hence I have stay away from my family. If I got opportunity in SMC Surat would be good for me, so that I will be able to take better care of my family.
My Parent Department i.e. Office of the Textile Commissioner (Subordinate Office of Ministry of Textiles), Mumbai has rejected my request of forwarding of my application on the following grounds :
1. There is acute shortage of officers in Group A and The Pay Band and Grade pay is same as I have been currently drawing.
Sir, my records are very clear. In my APAR my reviewing officer has graded me 8.61 and outlined me as an Asset to the organization. I am very clear from Vigilance Angle also.
Though, I implored a lot, my department is not ready to forward my application. I am told, that If I want to leave, I can resign and leave. I am ready for that also but forwarding of application by the present employer is compulsory for applying to the new post at my hometown.
Sir, I beg to kindly guide me that is there any such rules that application can be withheld if Pay Band and Grade Pay are same ? I am again asked to submit the rule position that application can be forwarded even if pay scales are same.
Sir, I would be so grateful if you could kindly guide me precisely so that I can submit such rule position to my department to get my application forwarded by them to Surat Municipal Corporation, Surat.
This would be your great favour for my family which consist of 3 female members i.e. my mother who is 66 years old and needs medical assistance frequently, my wife and my teenaged daughter.
God Bless you. Please Reply Sir,
