STATE TIMES NEWSJAMMU: In a petition filed by 1995 batch of Sub-Inspectors challenging judgment of Full Bench Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT), a Division Bench of Jammu & Kashmir High Court comprising Justice Tashi Rabstan and Justice Javed Iqbal Wani, after hearing Sr Advocates Abhinav Sharma, Rahul Pant assisted by Advocates Abhimanyu Sharma and Anirudh Sharma for petitioners, whereas battery of lawyers for private respondents and AAG Raman Sharma for UT, ordered that subject to objections from other side and till next date of hearing before the Bench, the official respondents are directed to maintain status-quo as it exists on date. It is worthwhile to mention here that Full Bench of Central Administrative Tribunal on March 31, while dismissing petition, directed Government to consider feasibility of framing the Recruitment Rules for posts of Sub Inspector and Inspector in various Wings of Jammu & Kashmir Police as well as Rules pertaining to maintenance of common seniority list for Inspectors, duly maintaining proper ratio between Executive Wing and Armed Wing. Against the judgment, a present petition was filed in the High Court.As per petition, recruitment to both the Wings are conducted separately, up to the level of Inspectors and the petitioners were appointed as SIs in EW in 1995, whereas the private respondents were appointed as SIs in AW in 1998. The seniority lists are maintained separately for post of SI in these two Wings. The promotions to post of Inspector in these two Wings are made on basis of seniority of SIs. As such, the SIs of AW were promoted earlier as compared to SIs in EW. To be precise, private respondents, who were appointed as SIs in 1998, got promotion to the post of Inspector in 2005, whereas, the applicants, who were appointed as SIs EW in 1995, got promotion as Inspector in 2007.The applicants contend that in combined seniority list of Inspectors, which is maintained for promotion to post of Deputy Superintendent of Police (Dy SP), the names of Inspectors from EW as well as AW are arranged only on the basis of the date of promotion to the post of Inspector and in the process, the private respondents were placed above them. They contend that the procedure adopted by the Government is contrary to Rule 172 of Jammu & Kashmir Police Rules. According to them, the entire police of J&K is one unit and there was absolutely no basis for maintaining separate seniority lists for Inspectors, or for that matter SIs, of Executive Wing on one hand and Armed Wing on the other.
