  1. Very mush appreciated News sir, I am working in BCGVL chennai from 1992 onwards no promotion as well as the ADMN staff have not given ACP in 2004 so my basic stagnated in 2005 so the one time increment was not given in 2006,I am the great sufferer.
    The ACP / MACP was implemented not to get STAGNATION but the ADMN staff never cares for the employees, if the knowledgeable staff is arrived by transfer this kind of problem will be solved.
    The dept never oblige even the court orders.

  2. A valid medical certificate will take care the transfer policy.The orders issued can be postponed to a date which is Administratively possible.!!! The aim is to come into public contact with added responsibilities...Hence the order has to be taken in right spirits.exception can be considered on valid medical grounds, if supported by a relevant medical institution...
