Chandigarh June 1 : Haryana Government has decided to set up State Administrative Tribunal (SAT) so as to provide quicker redressal of employees’ grievances regarding service matters. A decision to this effect has been taken in a meeting of the State Cabinet held under the Chairmanship of Chief Minister Mr Manohar Lal here today. In view of the increasing number of court cases, particularly service matters of employees, it has been considered advantageous and essential that SAT may be established in the state. Its establishment in the state will not only provide quicker redressal of employees’ grievances or service matters. The Cabinet also decided to increase the strength of Haryana Public Service Commission (HPSC) by amending the Haryana Public Service Commission (Conditions of Service) Regulations 1972. As per the amendment, now the number of members of HPSC has been increased from existing six to eight, in addition to the Chairman. The Cabinet also gave ex-post facto approval for brining the posts of Post Graduate Teachers (PGT) / Trained Graduate Teachers (TGT) and other teachers under the purview of Haryana Staff Selection Commission by making amendment in para 6(a) of Government Notification dated January 28,1970. Till recently, the selection of teachers for appointment to the government school and selection of Teacher Educator, Education Supervisor for School Education Department in the state was being done by the Haryana School Teacher Selection Board (HSTSB), Panchkula but the Board has failed to achieve the desired results and the recruitment process for all the posts for which the requisitions were sent to HSTSB were marred by unnecessary litigation. The Cabinet also approved the Annual Administrative Reports of Civil Aviation Department, Haryana for the year 2010-11, of Archives Department for the year 2011-12 and of Tourism Department for the year 2007-08 and its review and critique.
