Sub:- Relaxation in percentage of marks for SC/ST candidates from GDS to appear for PA/SA examination- Reg.
I would like to draw your kind attention to this letter regarding the recruitment for PA/SA posts from unfilled vacancies of LGOs offered to GDS by way of Direct Recruitment. It is observed that w.r.t Directorate letter No.60-9/2009-SPB-1, dated 08-05-2012 the minimum marks condition for appearing such examination by GDS is mentioned as 50% in +2 qualification to all GDS with out any relaxation to SC/ST categories.
Where as in open market Direct Recruitment, it is specified 45% as minimum marks in +2 qualification for SC/ST categories, which is highly discriminated and caused severe discontentment among GDS staff belongs to certain categories.
The decision taken by the Department in this regard is very much deviated from the true spirit of the Govt. and defeat the very purpose of reservation opportunity in the appointments. Taking into consideration of the view point of our Union and requested to take all necessary measures to modify the condition by fixing 40% minimum marks in +2 examination for SC/ST categories for the examination notified for 2010 unfilled vacancies of LGOs vide letter above cited.
It is requested to take immediate action on the subject and a line reply to this Union is highly solicited.
