Sub : Arbitrary order by Supdt. Dhenkanal Division for recovery from pay of the officials participated in the local agitation in Dhenkanal Division on 16.11.2016
We are forwarding the Postal JCA ( NFPE & FNPO), Dhenkanal Division letter No. JCA-07/2017, dated 20.03.2017 addressed to the Superintendent Dhenkanal Division on the above subject.
We consider the very order of recovery from pay for the date 16.11.2016, if issued by the Divisional Supdt. is provocative and arbitrarily without proper inquiry.
As aware, in the evening after office hour on 15.11.2016 the staff members of Dhenkanal Division expressed their resentment against gross misbehaviour shown by the then Divisional Supdt. Shri B.M.Das Mohapatra. The issue very soon attracted the Media attention for which by morning of 16.11.2016 hundreds of agitated public gathered in HO premises. The union representatives immediately brought the fact to the notice of RO/CO through Circle representatives.
The matter was thoroughly discussed by the Circle Union representatives with the Chief PMG in his chamber on 16.11.2016 and the Chief PMG directed the union representatives to proceed to the spot and make them understand to stay away from such agitation. Immediately, the representatives proceeded to the spot and normalcy could be restored due to intervention of Circle administration through Circle union representatives.
The office work which hampered to some extent was only due to massive dissatisfaction and agitation of local citizens against the Divisional Supdt. A large number of allegations against Shri Das Mohapatra are still pending with CO/RO which need to be enquired to establish the misbehaving attitude of the then SPOs.
Thus, we are of the opinion that after amicable settlement of the issue further action will simply aggravate the situation.
As such, we would like to request you to kindly direct the Superintendent, Dhenkanal Division to drop the order of recovery from pay.
A line of reply on the action taken is highly solicited.
