Dear All, 

Today it has become common sight to observe that there have been Politically backed postings of non-Cadre officials on contractual appointments to be positioned at crucial cadre-posts flouting the provisions as laid down under the Indian Administrative Rules, 1954.

In many incidents, it has been observed that such illegal postings have become a major cause of unparalleled corruption and misuse of position (along with the powers associated with the position) by these undeserving personnel.

Furthermore, such political postings on cadre posts, are a major cause of induced injustice and corruption, and are totally unfair to the hard-working, honest, sincere, dedicated and deserving officials from the prestigious cadre service.

Recently, the Hon'ble High Court of Punjab & Haryana at Chandigarh, in the matter of Shri Suresh Kumar (ex-IAS), appointed as Chief Principal Secretary to the Hon'ble Chief Minister of Punjab on contractual basis, had quashed his appointment.

Similarly, in the central state of Chhattisgarh one Shri Aman Kumar Singh (ex-IRS vide VRS in 2010) was 'promoted' to the cadre post of Secretary to the Hon'ble Chief Minister in 2012 and later upgraded to the post of the Principal Secretary to the Hon'ble Chief Minister Dr. Raman Singh in 2013 flouting all existing norms. In order to achieve this,  a set of rules under the banner of the CG Contract Appointment Rules, 2012 were also formulated which allegedly overlapped the provisions of some Central Rules and so also the authority of Central Bodies regulating those overlapped rules.

This online petition aims to bring this to the attention of key offices,  so that a permanent 'Stop' is put on such (mal)practices, and also aims towards the formulation of a clearly defined policy on this issue,  of flouting of norms and allegedly misuse of political offices.

In the eventuality you agree to the issue(s)  raised herein, you are humbly requested to support this online petition.

Let's all make a sustained difference together and support our Hon'ble Prime Minister's landmark drive to free India from corruption.
