Khemka moves to CAT against non-empanelment?

If some key sources are to be believed 1991 batch Haryana cadre IAS officer Ashok Khemka has moved to Haryana Bench of Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) against his non-empanelment as Additional Secretary in Govt of India.

It may be underlined that NaMo administration had on 09 October 2019 cleared the empanelment of 31 IAS officers belonging to 1991 batch to hold Additional Secretary/AS Equivalent post in Govt of India. Usually, the review of empanelment of a batch is considered along with empanelment of immediate junior batch. 

Those in the know of the affairs say that Khemka too would have been waiting to find his name on the review list expected along with the empanelment list of 1992 batch of IAS officers which was cleared last Monday. Cases of review of 1991 batch was not taken up along with 1992 batch empanelment which would have prompted Khemka to move to CAT.

AS empanelment of 1992 batch of IAS: Reading between lines

By IndianMandarins 20 Nov 2019

Empanelment of 1992 batch IAS officers announced on last Monday was quite different from previous batches. The notification was issued abruptly as no one apprehended it so early. (CLICK to read complete list)

The list of empanelment left almost everyone awestruck for various reasons. After we published the list first several senior officers told Indianmandarins that initially they apprehended that names on the list could be an speculative one as it was too difficult for them to believe that only 19 IAS officers could make it. It was learnt that a few disappointed aspirants immediately chose to take a break/leave from the office. Though several eligible and deserving officers have started preparing their representation against non-empanelment and many left outs may hope for their chances in review empanelment but their dreams appear to have shattered now. 

Various aspects of empanelment of 1992 batch draw immediate attention and offer a lot to read between the lines:

  1. The 1992 batch, comprising 73 officers, had approximately 48 JS rank officers of which merely 19 could make a cut whereas 1991 batch had 68 JS rank officers of which 31 got empanelled to Additional Secretary (AS) and AS Equivalent.
  2. None of the officers from Andhra Pradesh, Telengana, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Assam, Meghalaya, Karnataka, Chhattisgarh, Uttarakhand, Odisha and West Bengal could see career prospects to serve as Additional Secretary in Govt of India. 
  3. The empanelment apparently went in favour of officers belonging to Manipur, Kerala, J&K and Madhya Pradesh. Manipur cadre proved to be the luckiest having all three officers empanelled as Additional Secretary proper.
  4. Three states; Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh and Sikkim, did not have representation as there was no allotment of IAS officers to these states from 1992 batch. 
  5. Of 19 (empanelled) officers only four are presently working in Govt of India namely; Mrs Nidhi Khare (Joint Secretary, M/o Environment & Forest & CC), Vineet Joshi (JS, M/o HRD), S C L Das (JS, MHA) and Sanjay Kumar (JS, M/o HRD). Majority (15 nos.) of them are currently serving in their cadre states. S C L Das played key role in Kartarpur Corridor negotiation.
  6. Contrary to the provisions and established norms (i.e. 03 years at Director or JS level post in Govt of India under Central Staffing Scheme) two IAS officers served less than a year under CSS and got empanelled.
  7. Among the empanelled ones two IAS officers having longest residual service worked in private sector (out of Centre/Cadre) for more than three years and joined back service. Reportedly, they served outside the government under certain provisions i.e. Extra ordinary leave (EoL).  
  8. Among those empanelled Sanjeev Kaushik (IAS:1992:KL) will be the last to retire (April 2029) followed by Narendra Bhooshan (March 2029) and Bipul Pathak (February 2029). Further, 08 officers would remain on turf till 2028; Shashi Ranjan Kumar (Dec. 2028), Vineet Joshi (Nov. 2028), Vumlunmang Vualnam (July 2028), Arunish Chawla (July 2028), Shaleen Kabra (July 2028), Neelam Shammi Rao (March 2028), Nidhi Khare (Feb. 2028) and Ashwani Kumar (Jan. 2028).
  9. Three officers have residual service up to 2027, three officers up to 2026 whereas 01 will be retiring in 2025; V L Kantha Rao (Dec. 2027), Anurag Srivastava (June 2027), Dr Rajendra Kumar (Jan. 2027); S C L Das (April 2026), Rakesh Ranjan (Aug. 2026) and K Gopal (Aug 2026), Sanjay Kumar (May 2025). K Ellangovan would be the first among the lot to retire (Jan 2022).

Like it happens after the empanelment of each successive batch this time too several officers on the list cited several upright and competent officers/batchmates whose non-empanelment came as a surprise to them. Several bright officers remained left out which appears to have shattered their dreams; though for time being only.

BJP to train its MPs on public speaking, ideology in a two day camp

By IndianMandarins 02 Aug 2019

New Delhi: To tell its lawmakers how to behave, the ruling party at the Centre -- Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) -- has planned a two-day training camp in the Balayogi Auditorium in New Delhi on August 3-4, 2019. Every member of Parliament of the BJP from both the houses will have to compulsory show up at the event to be addressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with many other senior leaders.

The BJP leaders are of the view that this is an attempt of the saffron outfit to train and sensitise all its 381 members of Parliament on the issues related to parliamentary practice, debates, party ideology, public speech, handling media and even the internal issues of the party.

The meeting is important because of the fact that training session would give clarity to the BJP MPs on ideological issues which is important for the BJP. They will also be told not to speak out of turn and on such subjects that they are not well equipped with. The meeting will not only attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on both days but he is likely to speak at the event as well.

Sources in the BJP said that the meeting will also be addressed by speakers not only from the BJP but outside the party as well on specialized subjects. Besides the PM and Union Home minister Amit Shah, there is a possibility that party general secretary and in-charge of BJP training cell Muralidhar Rao might also address it. All the MPs have been asked to attend this meeting without a miss. Actually the BJP wants to pull string on some of motor mouths in the party by telling them how to speak saving the party from any unnecessary controversy and embarrassment due to some of its own leaders.

Sources further informed that this is a hectic meeting that would start at 9 am and would finish at 9 pm. MPs will get breakfast, lunch and dinner at the venue itself. Training cell of the BJP has major role to play in it as it is continuously doing the same but at smaller level. It will take up many issues including etiquette and how to deal with media which is a major concern of the party.

Sources are not ready to divulge any further detail about the programme but the purpose of the entire exercise is to ensure that certain basic things are required for a MP, minister and people having organizational responsibilities.

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) too keeps on doing such training camps for its workers but this would be the first such event when all BJP MPs will be participating in such a mega event that is dubbed as (Abhyas Varg).
