ITAGAR, Feb 12: Aruchal Ptradesh Governor J P Rajkhowa has cancelled all the officiating or functiol appointments and the promotions on ‘out of turn’ basis.

The Raj Bhavan here has issued an Office Memorandum (OM) on Thursday directing cancellation of all officiating or functiol appointments and the promotions made on ‘out of turn’ basis with immediate effect.

“All departments will ensure that postings to posts are as per inter-se seniority”.

The governor has instructed concerned Secretaries and Heads of Departments (HoDs), to issue necessary orders accordingly.

It has been decided that henceforth, no officiating posting or promotion outside the merit or inter-se seniority list would be allowed to any junior level officer by bypassing a senior officer in any Department, Organization or Office under the Government of Aruchal Pradesh.

The communiqué added that in exceptiol circumstances, any officiating or functiol arrangement is required to be made that too for a very short period purely in public interest, the same may be considered only as an exception, for which written approval from the Chief Secretary has to be obtained on file, in advance.

Rajkhowa has justified the action and added this was necessitated in view of numerous complaints received from civil societies, NGOs, as well as government officials and other aggrieved officers alleging such kind of out of turn promotions in an irregular, illegal and unjustifiable manner.
