Imphal, Dec 28: Despite having a state policy to discontinue service extension of retired officers, process for service extension or re-engagement of K. Lokeshore Singh, Additional Chief Engineer of Command Area Development Department  by promoting him as Chief Engineer has irked the employees of the office.
The All Manipur Command Area Development Employees’ Association (AMADEA) had once again submitted a memorandum to the Chairman of the Manipur Public service commission to examine the legality of giving promotion to K. Lokeshore Singh as Chief Engineer of CADA under the Manipur Civil Engineering Service (PWD) Rules 2016, Scheduled – III, rule 7 (ii) which stated clause for regulation of CADA.
The Employees’ body said that K. Lokeshore is not even qualified for the post of the Chief Engineer, keeping aside the violation of the state policy for extension of his service as he is in charge of the Additional Chief Engineer.  He joined the office as in charge of Superintending Engineer , CADA without any extra remuneration till the post is filled up on regular basis by an order of the Governor of Manipur dated  10th September, 2015.
The state cabinet decision taken on 18th of December, 2017 to re-designate the post of Additional Chief Engineer (CADA) as Chief Engineer (CADA) by one time selective adoption of the Manipur Engineering Service (PWD) Rules 2016 which is likely to facilitate double promotion to K. Lokshore has created apprehension to the Employees’ Association of CADA.  
The employee body said that K. Lokeshore, in-chrage SE is not eligible to even be promoted as Additional Chief Engineer as per the existing Recruitment Rules.
Lokeshore, the present in-charge Additional Chief Engineer will retire on December 31, 2017. As there are various other junior officers with year long experience, re-engaging him and that too by giving double promotion to him will be nothing but committing injustice to the junior officers of CADA.
As source revealed about the process being underway, a legal notice has also been served to the Principal Secy. (CAD) Government of Manipur requesting him not to allow the extension or re-engagement of the Head of Department of the CADA following retirement on supernuation on December 31, 2017.
Spokesperson of the Government of Manipur , Th. Bishwajit had already stated that the state government will discontinue re-engagement of retired officers.
The legal notice to the Principal Secretary (CAD) stated that the extension / re-engagement of the employees after retirement is against the principles laid down by the Supreme Court of India and is in violation of the law of the land. It further stated that fundamental rules 56 as applicable to the employees of the Government of Manipur clearly provides that no government servant shall be granted extension in service beyond the age of retirement.
