I think rotation of leadership/responsibility would better choice or decision.
We should not mix and match the benefit got by this precedent. This is a promotion in Librarian Cadre Grade 4 to Grade 5, but not enhancement of post. Dr. Ravi would get the scale PB 4 and AGP 10000 with the same designation. However, the the head ship could be with the Librarian only. It would be very useful for the library community stuck badly in CAS of UGC.
Many Congratulations for the same.
Dear Shri Dodamani,
Perhaps, Dr. Ravi is the only Deputy Librarian in central govt. institutions who has been promoted to the post of Librarian. He deserves appreciation to make it an example for others. There are many deserving Assistant and Deputy Librarian who may get the benefit if the scheme is implemented judiciously as in case of teachers who may now complete the journey to professorship in six years.
Some stray efforts have been made by individuals to get it implemented in the other institutions but no progress is seen even after more than a year of clear recommendations and gazetting of the regulations. There are instances when persons with more than 24 years of service as Deputy Librarians, fulfilling eligibility conditions and with excellent service record of taking the library to the highest rank in the country have not been given the benefit. As I think, we should have a platform across all central/state universities to stand against this injustice to librarians.
With thanks and thanks
