3. (I) EFFECTIVE UTILISATION OF SERVICES OF CSSS PERSONNEL:
Initiating the discussion, Director (CS-II) took up the issue regarding effective . utilisation of services of CSSS personnel across the grades. On this, many Cadre Units pointed out that services of Stenographers of Hindi medium are not being adequately utilised for some reason or the other. Many Cadre Units pointed out that officials with Hindi medium may be suitably motivated and trained to do English typing so that their medium should Act become obstacle in posting them with officials where work is done in English. Following suggestions were made by the various Cadre Units on the issue:
i) Introduction of some scheme which may have monetary component like granting of advance increments to Hindi Stenographers to become bilingual in typing.
ii) Proportionate distribution of Hindi and English Stenographers to a Cadre unit.
iii) Posting of one Hindi ‘Stenographer with the officers of/above the milk of Joint Secretary.
iv) Suitable changes in the Recruitment Rules may be made for recruitment of Grade ‘D’ Stenographers with desirable knowledge of bilingual typing.
v) To organise Special Training programme in ISTM for all the newly recruited Hindi Stenographers to learn English typing.
Apart from the above, some of the Cadre Units also raised the issue of posting of PSO/Sr.PPS of CSSS with senior officers in the cadre. In this connection, some of the Cadre Units intimated that sometimes a peculiar situation arises when the senior officers do not want a PSO/Sr.PPS and express their desire in favour of a junior official. It then becomes very difficult on the part of the Cadre Units to post these PSO/Sr.PPS in the Ministry as no other officer of equivalent rank is available. In this situation, the issue of writing of the APARs etc. of the concerned official becomes contentious. Director (CS-II) was of the opinion that in such cases, Cadre Units may get in touch with the CS-II Division and forward the names of such officers to this Division, which would then explore the possibility of posting them to some other Ministries/Department where vacancies in the grade are available and some other officers/officials in the grade of PS/PA could to be provided.
(ii) EXPEDITING THE DPC MEETING FOR THE PS & PA GRADE OF CSSS IN RESPECT OF THE EXTENDED ZONE FOR THE SELECT LIST YEAR 2010.

Grade `D’ in the extended zone for the Select List year of 2010 and submit the same to this Division immediately.

However, generally all the Cadre Units assured that the information would be sent within a week.
(iii) CENTRALIZATION OF THE GRADE OF PS/PA/STENO D OF CSSS.
Cadre Units were informed that CS-II Division is in the process of centralization of the grades of PS/PA/Steno D’ of CSSS.
