Joint Secretaries to give ultimatum to Govt. for fulfilling their demands


KATHMANDU: As the country is passing through transition phase there is any sector, which is not affected by the politics. Although we have received the news of junior employees having agitation demanding fulfillment of their demands but now this is the turn of senior bureaucrats to pressurize the government to fulfill their demands.

As many as 465 agitating joint secretaries in civil service are all set to issue a seven-day ultimatum to the government if it fails to amend the Civil Service Act to ensure that no first class officials from the Legal Service Commission are promoted to the post of secretary.

Some five months ago, the Supreme Court had asked the government to clarify the promotion prohibition of first class officials from the Legal Service Commission into general service and had subsequently ordered that serving joint secretaries from Legal Service, (officials serving at the various courts, with the government attorney and the law service) along with joint secretaries from other general services like administration and foreign service, be considered for promotion to secretary.

“We will serve a seven-day ultimatum if our grievances were not heard,” reports quoted an agitating joint secretary as saying. The agitating bureaucrats are meeting Minister for General Administration Madhav Poudel today.

If the apex court order is implemented, all four vacant secretary level positions will be filled from legal service, denying promotion to joint secretary from general service. Currently, there are around 500 joint secretaries in general service and 60 in legal service.
