Officer shortage in administration, normal work affected, extensions galore

By Our Correspondent

Agartala, March 23, 2019: A severe crisis of competent officers at the higher and middle level is telling upon important administrative work. The problem has been worsened by the Supreme Court order putting a cap on promotions over the past two years since March 27. This has blocked the way for filling up higher level posts by promotion also because only a limited number of posts at the higher level are filled up by direct recruitment. Highly placed sources in the administration said that a plea has already been filed to the Supreme Court to secure an interim order clearing promotion so that the administration can be run effectively.

This deadlocked scenario has led to repeated extensions being given to officers like Samarjit Bhowmik , M.L.Dey , T.K.Chakma in a compromise on BJP's pre-election declaration of not giving extension to higher level officers. Sources said that the crisis had originated from the tenure of previous left front which always dithered in giving promotion even to senior and deserving officers. Since there is a shortage of officers, the administrative work is being done by officers on 'current duty charge'. This is adversely affecting the efficiency in the administration because officers on 'current duty charge' are uncertain about their actual promotional avenues. The problem can be partially resolved only if an interim order allowing promotion is given by the Supreme Court.
