Port Blair, Dec. 17: The President, Hindu Rashtra Shakti, Shri Rakeshwar Lall has raised the issue of filling of Ex-Cadre Posts by promotion of Local Feeder Grade Officers with the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi.

Lall in his letter to PM Modi informed that there is no single DANICS Officer from A& N Islands, due to non-timely promotion of Local Feeder Grade Officers even after completion of more than 2 (two) decades in Feeder Grade Posts. Such situation is noticed first time in the history of Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

Moreover there are 04 Nos Ex-Cadre posts under A& N Administration viz.

 1) Executive Secretary, AAJVS, Port Blair,

2) Project Officer, ITDP, Car Nicobar,

3) DRCS, Port Blair,

4) Deputy Director, Civil Supplies, Port Blair.

However, these posts are lying vacant since long time but they are managed by giving additional charges to the Entry Grade DANICS Officers , which affects the promotional avenues of deserving local Feeder Grade Officers and due to non-promotion, they are disheartened and feel neglected and thus, frustrated.

The HRS President called upon the PM to look into the said genuine grievances of Islands' Feeder Grade officers and do the needful to promote the eligible feeder grade officers against the said Ex-Cadre posts of A& N Administration at the earliest, please.
