NCCSA to meet on Sept 20
New Delhi: The NCCSA will meet here on September 20 to discuss various issues, including posting of IAS officers, disciplinary action against some officials and the matter related to the construction of Delhi chief minister’s residence, officials said on Friday.
The National Capital Civil Services Authority (NCCSA) meeting will be held at the chief minister’s camp office at 4 pm on September 20, according to an official document.
The agenda of the meeting will be consideration of disciplinary action against three teachers of the education department and a doctor of the health department, officials said.
The three-member panel headed by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal includes the chief secretary and the principal secretary (home) who acts as secretary of the body.
The panel was formed in May to take call on services matters, including transfer and posting of Group ‘A’ officers and disciplinary action against officials concerned in the Delhi government. On the other six agenda items, the chief minister, who chairs the NCCSA meetings, was provided certified copies of the files. However, he sought original files earlier this month on the six matters also.
“While the original files on five matters, including alleged irregularities in Rani Jhansi flyover and disciplinary proceedings against four Forensics Science Lab (FSL) officials, were provided to him, the original file on construction of Delhi chief minister’s residence was not provided,” said the officials.
The NCCSA secretary has observed that the original file was not provided to the authority chairman due to direct “conflict of interest” as the matter concerned construction of his own residence.
“The original file will be made available during the meeting of the authority in case chairperson of the authority/the chief minister would like to verify the authenticity of its certified copy provided to him already,” stated the document.
The NCCSA secretary further observed that since sections 45H(1) and 45H(2) of the GNCTD Act, 1991, provide that the NCCSA will have the responsibility to recommend the cases of transfers, postings, initiation of disciplinary proceedings, prosecution sanction, and therefore, the authority is duty bound to consider “all the agendas” submitted by the concerned departments.
There is no scope for taking up of “selective agendas” in a particular meeting, said the document, adding in case the authority finds any shortcoming in any agenda then it may seek clarification from the department concerned.
