Port Blair, Sept. 3: Shri D. Ayyappan, General Secretary, Non-Gazetted Govt. Officers’ Association on 31st August, 2012 met the Principal Chief Conservator of Forests, Andaman and Nicobar Islands and expressed concern over the undue delay in undertaking the cadre restructuring of the Forest Clerical Cadre.  Ayyappan said that even after more than two years of the restructuring of the Amalgamated Clerical Cadre in the Secretariat, restructuring has not been  carried out in respect of Forest Clerical Cadre.  

He also conveyed to the PCCF the growing discontentment and anger among the Clerical Staff in the Forest Department as there is all-round stagnation among the Clerical Cadre employees in the Forest Department due to limited scope for promotion. A request was also made to the Chief Secretary to take immediate steps to undertake the re-structuring of the Forest Clerical Cadre.
