Subject: Promotion to the post of Supervisor (NT) from Leading Fireman: Norms Relaxation in OFB.

Respected Sir,
With due regards, your attention is invited to the Agenda Point No. 63 raised by this federation BPMS in the Steering Committee meeting for the 90th Departmental Council (JCM) (MoD) held on 27.09.2013 {Refer MoD F.No. 5(2)/2013/D(JCM), Dated 24.09.2013}. This federation submitted that Hon’ble CAT/Principal Bench, New Delhi in OA No. 1396 of 2008 – Shri M.R.Meena Vs Union of India has ordered that parity should be maintained between Leading Hand Fire with other feeder grades (viz. LDC, Photographer, Telephone Operator-II & Subedar Durwan) for the promotion to the post of Supervisor (NonTechnical).

According to existing SRO 30, dated 14.07.2010, Ministry of Defence, Ordnance Factories, Supervisor (Non-Technical) and Telephone Operator Grade-II Group ‘C’ Posts Recruitment Rules, 2010, 50% vacant posts of Supervisor (Non-Tech) will be filled up by promotion from Photographer, Telephone Operator Grade-II, Subedar Durwan and Leading Hand Fire. This fifty per cent post of Supervisor (NT) may be filled up by 64% from the Leading Hand Fires in the Pay Band – I Rs. (5200 – 20200) plus Grade Pay of Rs. 2000/- with five years of regular service in the grade and possessing any of the following qualification:-

(a) having passed the Senior Fire Supervisory Course from Defence Institute of Fire Research, Ministry of Defence, New Delhi; or

(b) having passed the Sub Officer’s Course from National Fire Service College, Nagpur or any other recognized institute; or

(c) having passed Station Officer’s Course or Assistant Divisional Officer’s or Divisional Officer’s Course from National Fire Service College, Nagpur or any other recognized institute;
or
(d) Degree in Fire Engineering from Nagpur University or any other recognized institute; or

(e) having passed Graduateship from Institute of Fire Engineers United Kingdom or Graduateship from Institute of Fire Engineers India

It is to be noted that this fifty per cent post will be be filled up by 17% from amongst Telephone Operators in the Pay Band-I Rs. (5200 – 20200) plus GP Rs. 1900/- with 08 years regular service; 12% from Subedar Durwan in the Pay band of Rs. (4400 – 7440) plus GP Rs. 1600/- with 14 years regular service in the grade; 7% from Photographer in the Pay band –I Rs. (5200 – 20200) plus GP Rs. 1900/- with 08 years regular service. From above it is seen that Leading Hand Fire should have more qualification in comparison to the other feeder categories for Supervisor (NT) whereas all the incumbents have to perform the same responsibility with the same Grade Pay, i.e. Rs. 2400/- (Pre Revised Rs. 4000 – 6000).

It is to be kept in the mind that Vide Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure) Notification G.S.R. 622(E), dated 29.08.2008 CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 has been introduced and the First Schedule Part-B, Section-II states that Station Officer’s pay scale Rs. (4000 – 6000) (Fire Fighting Staff) has been upgraded to Rs. (4500 – 7000) and revised to GP Rs. 2800/-, whereas Supervisor (NT) is being granted the GP Rs. 2400/- on promotion from the post of Leading Hand Fire. Thus, the provisions of SRO 30 have not been framed considering the CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 as the qualification of only one of the feeder posts Leading Hand Fire has been enhanced but the Grade Pay of promotional post Supervisor (NT) for Fire Fighting Staff has not been enhanced to Rs. 2800/-.

In this regards, comments offered by D(Estt./NG) is enclosed for your ready reference. Therefore, your attention is invited to Rule 6 of SRO 30 which empowers the Central Government to relax the provisions of these rules to any class or category of persons and you are requested to take appropriate action so that existing Leading Hand Fire incumbents who are not fulfilling the requisite qualification may also be promoted to the post of Supervisor (NT) by granting relaxation in qualification as mentioned hereinabove.

Thanking you.

Sincerely yours

(MUKESH SINGH)
Secretary/BPMS &
Member, JCM-II Level Council (MOD)
