Govt Polytechnic for Women gives technology a human touch

TECHNOLOGY sans human touch is dehumanising and education sans technology is obsolete. Perhaps, it was this close association between education and technology, and between technology and personality development that was instrumental in setting up Government Polytechnic for Women (GPW) in the city. Though it has been more than three decades since the college was established, yet it retains its commitment to technology-peppered-with-human-touch approach.

Spread over an area of 13 acres, it is situated about 2 km from bus stand and railway station. The college is equipped with a host of labs and workshops, including computer labs, pharmacy labs, electronic workshop, fitting workshop, welding workshop and carpentry workshop. There is a library and information centre complete with OASIS and LIBSYS — special software designed for information centres.

The college offers various diploma courses, including architectural assistantship, electronics and communication engineering, computer engineering, library and information science, modern office practice and pharmacy. Admission to all courses is through the JET after matriculation. However, for pharmacy and office practice courses, only Plus Two students on merit-basis are eligible.

But it s not just the vocational courses that set this college apart from other colleges. It s the emphasis on the latest technology as applicable in the Indian scenario that makes this institution one of the creditable institutions in the city.

In sports, too, the students of this college have excelled consistently. According to the college authorities, the students have been winning top positions in basketball and kabaddi.

The students bagged various positions in the 7th youth festival for girls. They stood first in solo dance, solo song and monoacting, second in fancy dress and giddha, third in choreography. They bagged the overall trophy for the third consecutive year.

Faculty improvement programmes are organised in the college regularly. The idea is to keep the teachers abreast of the latest in their fields. "You cannot afford to be complacent in this era of competition. You have to update yourself with the latest," says Mr Baljit Singh, Principal of the college.

Campus placements are a routine feature, say college authorities. Yet another notable feature of the college is the internal revenue generation (IRG) scheme. The IRG is the first step towards self-dependence. The institute offers four skill-development courses, including English and Punjabi stenography, dress-designing and embroidery courses, under the IRG.

The institution also serves as the headquarters for the Punjab Technical Institutes Sports, a state-level body with 61 technical institutes as its members.

"Vocational and technical education is not about squeezing away students from the actualities of life to make way for technology. We want our students to be technologically competent and emotionally balanced persons who are thorough professionals. Our vision is to meet the challenges of the competitive world by encouraging and educating budding women technocrats. Our mission is to contribute our bit to the empowerment of women," says the college principal.



CWP 12486-CAT of 2007

Date of Decision 23.02.2011

Mrs Avtansh Singh ---Petitioner
Union of India and others ---Respondents


Mr NP Mittal Advocate for the petitioner
Ms Jai Shree Thakur Advocate for respondent Nos 1 to 5

1 To be referred to the Reporters or not? yes
2 Whether the judgment should be reported in the Digest?

1 The instant petition filed under Article 226 of the Constitution is directed against order dated 10012007 passed by Chandigarh Bench of Central Administrative Tribunal (for brevity the Tribunal ) holding that the petitioner was not entitled to grant of pay scale of the post of Head of Department (for short HOD ) as she was never appointed on that post Accordingly she has been
regarded as Lecturer in Communication and Engineering and pension and other retiral benefits have been paid to her on that basis

2 The short issue raised by the petitioner is whether she is entitled to grant of pay scale of HOD (Electronics and Communication Engineering) of Polytechnic or not

3 The brief facts of the case necessary for disposal of the controversy raised in the instant petition are that the petitioner was a Lecturer in Government Polytechnic for Women Sector 10
Chandigarh and on her request she was given voluntary retirement on 28021999 She had claimed salary of the higher post of HOD (Electronics and Communication Engineering) for the period from 11081989 to 28021999 for which she performed duties and functions of the said post On the aforesaid basis she has prayed for refixation of pension and grant of other retiral benefits like DCRG commutated value of pension leave encashment by taking into account the pay and allowances of HOD and release of arrears of difference of salary and that of retiral benefits together with interest @ 12% per annum

4 It has remained undisputed that the petitioner was initially appointed as a Lecturer in Communication and Engineering on ad hoc basis on 01041978 Her appointment became substantive after her selection through UPSC on 05071978 (A-7)

She had claimed that she was adjusted as HOD (ECE) but later on
her senior Shri Balbir Singh was adjusted against that post The
petitioner has asserted that on 11081989 Shri Balbir Singh HOD (ECC) Government Polytechnic for Women Sector 19 Chandigarh was relieved and was posted at the Central Polytechnic Sector 26

According to the petitioner she took over the charge of HOD from Shri Balbir Singh and started discharging duties and functions of that post from 11081989 till 28021999 During the period of her services from 11081989 to 28021999 she was paid salary of a Lecturer whereas she claims entitlement to the pay and allowances of the post of HOD in the scale of ` 12000-16350 In order to prove the fact that she was working as HOD she has placed reliance on (A- 13 and A-14) It has also come on record that her representation made in August 1996 for her appointment and promotion as HOD was rejected on 01071990 (A-3) The respondent infact has claimed that she was never asked to discharge duties as HOD and in various communications with the respondent she has described herself as a Lecturer (R-5-1 to R5-5)

5 The Tribunal rejected the claim made by the petitioner

The view of the Tribunal is evident from the concluding para of its
order which reads as under:

From the perusal of documents and evidence produced by both sides it is apparent that the request of the applicant for her appointment as HOD was rejected in 1990 itself One thing is apparent there is no order of formal appointment of the applicant and there is only mention in the inter-correspondence of the college in a routine manner

That does not show that she was ever appointed or working as HOD Moreover Annexure A-28 and A-29 are communications which have been issued by Shri Balbir Singh Principal himself in which the applicant has been shown as O-I ECE and HOD (ECE)

When Shri Balbir Singh himself was working as HOD why he should address applicant applicant as HOD (ECE)

In any case addressing the applicant by mention of such designation in inter-departmental correspondence is of no avail unless there is a formal appointment order in favour of the applicant

Thus we have no hesitation in holding that the applicant did not perform her duties as HOD since 010989 till her retirement and she is not entitled to the pay and allowances of the post of HOD

The decisions relied upon by the applicant are distinguishable and do not apply to the facts of these case

6 Having heard learned counsel for the parties we are of the considered view that this petition is devoid of merit and thus is
liable to be dismissed The Fundamental Rule 49(i) of the Fundamental Rules and Supplementary Rules (for brevity FRSR )
which is applicable to the facts of the present case does not admit of grant of any additional pay in the absence of any order directing her to take charge of the duties of a higher post of HOD The said Rule is extracted below for ready reference:

FR49 x

Where a Government servant is formally appointed to hold full charge of the duties of a higher post in the same office as his own and in the same cadre- line of promotion in addition to his ordinary duties he shall be allowed the pay admissible to him if he is appointed to officiate in the higher post unless the competent authority reduces his officiating pay under Rule 35; but no additional pay shall however be allowed for performing the duties of a lower post

7 A perusal of the aforesaid would show that an express order is required to be issued by the Government to hold full charge of the higher post in the same office as her own and in the same cadre- line of promotion in addition to her ordinary duty It is only in that situation that the pay of a higher post may be admissible to her On perusal of the record it appears that the petitioner has failed to produce any document on the records that she has ever been formally appointed to hold full charge of a higher post in addition to her own duties Even the circumstances do not indicate that she was ever asked to work as HOD On the part of the respondent there is a categorical denial of the aforesaid fact On a representation made by the petitioner to appoint her as HOD on regular basis the respondent passed an order on 01071990 declining the aforesaid request and in fact she has acquiesced by accepting her as Lecturer because she submitted her pension paper with her status as Lecturer (R-3)

The judgment of Hon ble the Supreme Court rendered in the case of Smt P Grover v State of Haryana and others 1983(3) SLR 473 would not come to rescue of the petitioner because firstly Rule 49(1) of FRSR categorically requires issuance of a formal letter asking incumbent of a post to assume charge of the higher post Secondly in Smt PGrover case (supra) there was express promotion order asking her to act on the higher post of District Education Officer Therefore we find that the ratio of the judgment in Smt P Grover s case (supra) would not have any application in the facts and circumstances of this case

6 For the reasons aforementioned this petition fails and the same is dismissed
