It was a routine formal meeting on items of Agendas published earlier.
The minutes will be posted as and when received.
Several issues were informally discussed and approach of our Chief PMG was very positive and judicious.
While discussing about forced trainings and meetings on Sundays and Holidays, staff side expressed thanks for cancelling such meetings in previous week responding our email. In this matter he asked PMG Rajkot on the spot to let staff enjoy Sundays and Holidays with their families. Approach of SP Jamnagar was also discussed, who reported to Circle office that all GDS staff is willingly ready to attend meetings and meals on Sundays and Holidays!! CPMG also commented that it is not convincing. Even if few persons show readiness, how decisions can be applied to all? Staff side was satisfied with response given by CPMG.
Issue of local purchase of stationary and allied matters was also discussed.
Some minor issues like pending approval for purchase of printers at BK Dn, force to prepare manual PA17 etc were also discussed.
It was importantly discussed about relief arrangement of officials whose approval and posting orders already issued two years or more back. It was clearly ordered that they will be relieved after recruitment of 2011-12 but till this date divisional and regional heads are submitting plea of shortage on retirement or promotions etc. Staff side urged to consider that if once they are relieved, vacancies would be calculated for next recruitment. If some result oriented action is not taken, so many PAs will remain awaiting their relief all the time and years together. Our CPMG assured to streamline processes and cause relief arrangements shortly.
We are thankful for affirmative response.
