Employees await benefits as many departments have yet to conduct meetings of DPC


In the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir many departments have still not started holding Departmental Promotion Committee (DPC) meetings to the much disappointment of employees. Delay in conducting DPC meetings which has deprived employees from getting career benefits as promotions and regularizations are getting delayed.

As per reports, it was repeatedly directed to all the Administrative Secretaries for conducting DPC meetings timely so that employees are not deprived of the promotions and regularizations.

An official order was also circulated for timely holding DPC meets dated June 11, 2021 by the Jammu and Kashmir Public Service Commission so that proposals along with pre-requisite documents are forwarded well within the time for clearance.

On December 2021, Chief Secretary Dr Arun Kumar Mehta has directed all the Administrative Secretaries to submit proposals for conduct of DPC meetings to the Public Service Commission.

As per Daily Excelsior, government departments have submitted incomplete proposals to the Jammu and Kashmir Public Service Commission by the Government departments which led to delay in conduct of meetings.

Out of total 43 Administrative Departments of the government of J&K only eight have conducted the respective Departmental Promotion Committees meetings. These departments are Tourism, Forest, Skill Development, Transport, Administrative Reforms and Trainings, Industries and Commerce, Labour and Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs.
