EVOLUTION OF ENGINEERING SERVICE (IBES) IN A.I.R./DD

DIRECT RECRUITMENT AT ASE (CLASS I JR); - In 1964 A.I.R. introduced lateral entry at class I junior level as in CPWD.( This was in addition to direct recruitment at AE level which had already started in 1960.) 32 posts were advertised and only 28 posts were filled. Mr O.P.Khushu, K.P.Ramaswamy, M.M.Asthana, V.V.Rao, was from that batch. I had lost the race although, had qualified. There was resentment in the Assistant Engineers, hundreds of them were stagnating. A committee under Mr Chaman Lal CE was constituted which recommended 180 posts of AEs(class II) to be upgraded as ASEs ( class I Jr) and only
80 posts of AEs were supposed to be left out but actually more than 120 posts of AEs was left out. Considering only 80 posts of AEs, Committee recommended a ratio of 25% departmental promotions and 75% direct recruitment in ASEs cadre. At the same time recruitment at AEs level was not stopped, so the number of AEs grew. This created a difficult situation for the remaining AEs and after the promotion of AEs to ASEs every thing in the Association also became quiet. However there were 4 AEs who were shown as Extraordinary brilliant and were promoted out of turn. There was a prolonged Court Case in the High Court of Delhi and at one stage Department agreed to undo the injustice and put these four persons in there respective positions, however, the High Court Bench changed twice and the list continued with those four on the top. There were problems of inter se seniority. Perhaps direct recruits of 1964 were kept on top followed by these 4 and rest followed. Due to Court case and pressure from AEs direct recruitment at ASE level was with- held for four years and was restarted in 1968. Tussle for the Quota for AEs continued for years and finally in 1972 it was resolved and was re- fixed at 40% Departmental and 60% for direct recruitment. During this period Direct recruitment at ASE and AE levels continued thus complicating matters. This also created a problem as there was no Departmental Promotion Committee for six years, number of posts went on increasing every year. It resulted in expanded zone of consideration for DPC, and when the promotions were done in 1973, quite a few of very junior A.E.s superseded many, and a number of senior AEs lost their seniority as much as more than
HUNDRED positions. When promotions took place from ASE to Station Engineers position, one can imagine the mental agony these superseded ASEs had while working under those Station Engineers who were much junior and were trained by them at the time of joining their service. That gives some picture of the Engineering wing of A.I.R’s hotch poch recruitment policy. Had there been no expansion you can imagine the chaos it would have been. Finally Government declared Engineering service as an Organised Service in Dec.1980/January, 1981. It was implemented in November 1981.The situation changed a lot since then. I had taken voluntary retirement from AIR & Doordarshan on 28-02-1981, before the orders were implemented.

 My brother's first lustrum since his death

This year we are observing my elder brother Sanjay Rout’s fifth death anniversary on the 16th May. He died in office while he was Additional Director General of Field Publicity. Before that he had worked as Director, News of Doordarshan and News Editor of All India Radio. He was truly prophetic in the sense that he knew how things would move at a particular point of time. It was he who once told me when nothing was going well for Prasar Bharati that a time would come when All India Radio would rise and rise as public service broadcaster and there would be no fall. I thought he was showering encomiums on radio because I am his younger brother and cursed to be an embodiment of Destiny’s ignominious defeat. He was being placatory. Today when I analyze what is in store for radio I feel my deceased brother was more self-assured and visionary than I was. Here is why he scored over me:

1.Radio has shed its cranky image. It is now faster, sweeter, and truer. No encrustation of tradition.
2.It has no hymnal book to refer to any more. It is experimenting constantly.
3.The content being globalised, geographical boundaries are withering away.
4.More and more people are investing in it because it has no past record of hearsay.
5.Now they have visual radio. Radio and the mobile phone go hand in hand.
6.I am aware of 3-D radio too. But I had better pre-arrange a discussion on that.
7.The future radio would be audience-centric with more premium on phone-ins.

All India Radio might look half-timbered, as he would have said, but a creaky door hangs longest.
