Hundreds of Delhi Administration Subordinate Services (DASS) cadre employees have protested at the Lieutenant Governor’s office, demanding SN Sahai committee recommendations to de link the post of Grade-I (DASS) officer of Delhi from the feeder grade of DANICS and reduce the post of Entry Grade of DANICS proportionately so that Grade-I DASS officers of Delhi may get 3 fixed promotion in their service on the pattern of CSS cadre. The also wanted two new regular promotional posts in grade pay of Rs. 6600/- and Rs. 7600/- (in-situ) be created within the DASS cadre as per the recommendation of the Sahai Committee. 

In a memorandum to the LG  office, the DASS cadre officials said that Grade-I officers, has not been restructured since the last 54 years from its inception in 1967 which is gross violation of guidelines issued vide DoPT OM dated 14.12.2010 and Cabinet Secretary s order dated 24.06.2021. These guidelines mandate that every organized cadre must be reviewed after every 5 years.

DASS cadre officials said that Lieutenant Governor did not meet them and they have submitted their plea to his office.

“The Pay Commission has established the pay parity between Grade-I (Das) officer and a section officer of the Central Secretariat Service (CSS) cadre.

Due to regular cadre restructuring of CSS cadre, their officers are getting minimum 4 promotions upto 10000 (insitu) scale while Grade-I (DASS) cadre officers are getting only one promotion in their entire service,” it said.

About 100 officers are compelled to take voluntary retirement from service every year due to non-implementation of the recommendations of the Sahai Committee for Grade-I (DASS) officers and another 500 officers are in queue in desperation and frustration. About 700 grades -1 Officers had retired on superannuation during the last three years without getting any benefit on the recommendations of the Committee.
