Delhi Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena on Wednesday directed the city Government’s education department to regularise jobs and not retain employees on an ad-hoc basis.
Saxena has approved a proposal to extend the ad-hoc appointment of Tokyo Paralympics Games medallist Sharad Kumar and Ravi Kumar Dahiya — a sliver medallist in wrestling in the Tokyo Olympic Games — to the post of Assistant Director Education (PE&NI) and Assistant Director Education (Sports), respectively, it said.
The statement said Saxena directed the education department to make efforts and ensure the regularisation of teachers’ appointments in concurrence with the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC).
“The L-G, in a relief to Sharad Kumar and Ravi Kumar (Dahiya), has approved the extension of their ad-hoc appointments, with a rider that their jobs should be regularised in concurrence with the UPSC at the earliest,” the statement said. “In the matter of seeking concurrence of UPSC for relaxation of Recruitment Rules and regular appointment, the Department has been asked to pursue the same with UPSC. Since, this process will take time, the LG, in a relief to Sharad Kumar and Ravi Kumar, has approved the extension of their ad-hoc appointment, with a rider that their jobs should be regularised in concurrence with the UPSC at the earliest,” it said.
