Recently we were informed that in Gandhinagar division in last month, the SSPO had withheld pay of 200 GDS and paid on 11th. This month pay of 117 GDS have been withheld and not paid till 12.10.11. This was on account of poor RPLI work!
The SSPOs issued Charge sheet to 60 GDS employees at a time for not attending RPLI mela and likely to take disciplinary action. He has put off duty three GDS in short time. He says in meeting at SOs that you go to your union leaders and they can not save you from action. Let them go any where. I will take action. Thus he pointlessly involves union. This shows his mindset.
He is not at all sanctioning GEB MIS Speed post etc incentive bills. The SSPO also issued a major charge sheet on 26.09.11 to one PA SBCO on trivial matters even when the official was due for retirement on superannuation in next four days. This is extreme level of harshness. We are thankful to Circle administration for intervention in such case and dropping of such Charge sheet.
The SSPO is used to address employees in singular and curt language.
The SSPO also do not permit any staff member to meet him and when all Circle Secretaries desired to meet him for discussion on problems and amicable solutions, he had no time! All C/S had to prepare a detailed Memorandum which was submitted to Circle Office, Ahmedabad on 13.10.11.
Our intention is to convey a clear message that there are many positive ways and means to encourage staff for better performance and gearing up achievement of targets fixed by higher officers but suppression, humiliation and threaten for disciplinary action on small matters will demoralize staff and reduce their efficiency and enthusiasm.
