Promo Boost For OSS

With 133 Assistant Section Officers getting promotion to higher ranks, for the first time Odisha Secretariat Service (OSS) Officers received huge promotional benefits,

Thanks to overdrive of Additional Chief Secretary Home and Development Commissioner, Asit Kumar Tripathy, such a large number OSS Officers, who were rotting for years together, received their due.

These officers were recruited during 1985 and there was hardly any scope for promotion, so restructuring of OSS Cadre was taken up.

Mr.Tripathy, who was instrumental in restructuring the State Secretariat cadre to improve effectiveness among the officers, took steps to relax old age stipulations on promotional aspects.

Take for example, an Under Secretary after serving four years in the post, he /she was entitled to be considered for promotion to Deputy Secretary.

Such type of ‘Residency Period’ was relaxed in all the posts so as to favor speedy promotions, said a senior officer of the Department of Home.

Mr.Tripathy has been generous in providing promotions to the officers and during last one month 372 Officers have been promoted and during his tenure as ACS Home over 1000 Officers in various ranks have been promoted, said the officer.

Similarly Data Entry Operator (DEO)s were rotting for years together and there was hardly any promotional prospects.

However, Mr.Tripathy took initiative to give their genuine dues to these officers and DEO Cadre was restructured and posts like Senior DEO, Assistant Data Processing Officers etc.

And the DEOs were given promotion and officers are happy, said sources.

Take the case of Stenos of the State Secretariat, they are the crucial officers and vacany is huge.

Out of 700 posts of Stenos, there are only 200 officers and any examination for Steno, aspirants were not able to pass it.

This is because short Hand and Typing test were tough for the aspirants and making them unsuccessful in their pursuit.

Syllabus changes were effected and Computer learning has been included for Stenos.

Now it is expected that aspirants will be able to pass the examinations and vacancies will be filled up.
