The cleanliness drives led by senior officials will be undertaken in all government and public offices, it said. The Centre had earlier declared October 2 (Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday) as gazette holiday.

There will be a special cleanliness drive in government offices from tomorrow till October 2 to get rid of clutter, garbage and weed out old and unwanted things from government premises, the directive said. The Cabinet Secretary had earlier also written to secretaries of central government departments pressing the need for clean working spaces.

“There are certain offices where construction material is lying for years. In some office premises, unused or junked vehicles are also parked. The departments have already been asked to make sure that no clutter, unused vehicles, rubbles or building material are lying in the office premises,” a Personnel Ministry official  said. There may be surprise inspections to ensure the effectiveness of cleanliness drive, he said. Senior officials have sprung into action and instructed their concerned supervisors to ensure that the office premises are clean.

Govt. approves fourteen senior Chief Commissioners as Principal Chief Commissioners w.e.f. 15-10-2014.

Government has approved fourteen senior IRS Offices to the rank of Principal Chief Commissioners to the  top pay scale of Rs 80,000 per month, bringing them on par with top secretaries and DGPs thus meeting their long pending demand to bring their senior most officers on par with those in the IAS and IPS.

The Finance Ministry issued an order to appoint 14 Principal Chief Commissioners of Customs and Central Excise on last December 18. The top  post in theIRS cadre in field formations till now used to be either a Chief Commissioner (CC) or a  Director General which is equivalent to an Additional Chief Secretary rank  officer but the government last year approved a massive cadre restructuring of the Customs and Central Excise department after which the senior most officers stand to get a pay scale on par with the DGPs and top secretaries of the government.

A total of 14 Chief Commissioners will be designated as Principal Chief Commissioners with a salary of Rs 80,000 per month and 38 Chief Commissioners will be upgraded Chief Commissioners under cadre restructuring with a salary of Rs 75,500-80000 from their present salary Rs 67000-79000.

An IRS cadre officer now can get salary on par with his bosses, Chairman and members of Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC), when he will be posted as Principal Chief Commissioner from October 15.

As the cadre restructuring of the Customs and Central Excise department is still being done by the CBEC, the 14 officers will officiate from their incumbent posting as there are no new charges to be held. All these officers will now be equivalent to the Special Secretary rank to the central government.

Sources said, close to a dozen more senior Chief Commissioners and Director Generals are expected to be appointed as the Principal Chief Commissioners shortly.
