CAT trashes empanelment plea by Khemka

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, July 21

The Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) has dismissed the petition of IAS officer Ashok Khemka, seeking directions to the Centre to consider his empanelment for the post of Additional Secretary or equivalent within a time-bound period.

Khemka had filed the petition after his name was not on the list of 31 Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officers of the 1991 batch for empanelment issued on October 9 last year.

Khemka stated in his petition that that eligibility criteria required three-year service at the Centre at the level of Deputy Secretary and above. According to the him, he had offered himself on a number of occasions, but was not appointed.

A Division Bench of the Central Administrative Tribunal held that the empanelment guidelines specifically excluded officers who had not served at the Centre on deputation for three years at the level of Deputy Secretary and above and the applicant in this case did not fulfil that requirement.
