Promotion of Stenographers to the Post of Suprintendent/Accountant Now Assistant Accounts Officer are reserved for Stenographers. According to ESTA CODE -1990 Edition Sl.No.198: A reference is invited to the Establishment Division O.M No.61/3/50-ME dated 30th August, 1951 which, inter-alia, lays down that a maximum of 10% of vacancies which are filled on a permanent or a quasi permanent basis in the grade of superintendent should be reserved in each Ministry/Division/Attached Department for Stenographers. These reservation orders did not, however, apply to purely temporary vacancies. It has now been decided, in consultation with the Federal Public Service Commission that promotion of Stenographers against temporary vacancies of Superintendent in the Secretariat and its Attached Departments may also be made. In order to overcome the difficulties and complications that might arise in making adjustment against 10% agreed quota of temporary posts of Superintendents, the Ministries/Divisions/Attach Departments should maintain a roster of vacancies for this purpose.
AN ANTIDATION CASE OF STENOGRAPHERS ARE UNDER PROCESS IN THE FEDERAL SERVICE TRIBUNAL AND NEXT HEARING DATE IS 7TH FEBRUARY 2011.
