Ask your Question? Recovery from salary on court attachment

At many of the field units of AIR/DD AOs or even HC/Accountant are not posted. The officers posted at these places feel handicapped in resolving administrative issues as there is no expertise available to guide them.. To extend help to such units  we are starting a new post wherein questions received  from these units will be sent to the experts available at major stations in our network and their replies will be posted on the blog periodically, so as to share and enrich the knowledge of all of us.
           
Question :
19. In one of the employee’s case deduction is made from the salary for execution of one and the same court decree, continuously for last 98 months. However, rule provision says that the recovery from salary for one and the same court decree cannot be made for more than 24 months ( continuously or intermittently). And when recovery is already made for  24 months period, then such remaining portion shall be exempt from the attachment.
a)Now, What action should be taken by the administration in this case?
b)Who will issue the stop recovery order and is there any way of getting back the said money deducted wrongly from the salary?
- N. Thillai Arul, National Deaf Chess Player,  UDC, AIR, Tuticorin (TN

Answer:
When the pay of a Government servant is attached by any order of a Court of Law, it is the duty of the officer receiving the attachment order to see that the proper deduction is made in satisfaction of such order from the pay of the Government servant concerned, and he shall keep a record of such deductions in Form no. 9.
Provided that where any part of such portion of the salary as is liable to attachment has been under attachment, whether continuously or intermittently, for a total period of twenty-four months, such portion shall be exempt from attachment until the expiry of a further period of twelve months, and where such attachment has been made in execution of one and the same decree, shall after the attachment has continued for a total period of twenty-four months, be finally exempt from attachment in execution of that decree ;
As per the Code of Civil Procedure, 1908  an order of attachment by a Court of Law is required for further period. After execution of decree of attachment for twenty four month, the DDO should intimate to the concerned Court of Law for further course of action.

Radio Kashmir keeps hope afloat, unites divided families

Nazeer Ahmad (55), a desperate father whose daughter went missing since September 7, changed boats and buses several times to reach Srinagar from cut-off south Kashmir's Anantnag district on Friday. His only hope to trace her daughter was trekking the peak of the Shankarachrya hill, east of the city.

Perched at the height of 1,000 feet above the marooned Srinagar city, the small makeshift one-room recording centre of Radio Kashmir has emerged as a single window to unite hundreds of the flood-ravaged divided families and keep the population connected with whatever remained of the administration."On reaching Srinagar, I trekked the hill to pass on the message of my missing daughter who studies at Srinagar's Government Medical College. Last time we spoke was Sunday, the day water took over the premises of the college. Since then there was no clue: if they were evacuated or still stuck there or met any mishap," said Ahmad.
Shankarachrya hill,

It took Ahmad six hours of arduous journey to reach to Srinagar from Anantnag, 53 km away, and hire boats to pass cut-off highway areas to locate the broadcasters of the Radio Kashmir rather than senior officials of the police or state administration in Srinagar.The message was flashed by Radio Kashmir's broadcaster Talha Jehangeer. In just hours, Ahmad was brimming with mixed emotions when he came to know through a radio message that the principal of the college shifted around 150 students of the hostel to a seminary in north Kashmir's Ganderbal district, 30 km away from Srinagar"Radio Kashmir infused a new life in me and my family. My daughter is everything to me. The broadcasters one message helped me to meet my daughter again. I had a calm sleep later in the night after five days of relentless attempt to trace my daughter," said Ahmad.Ahmad is among the thousands of people who kept the phones ringing and short message service inbox full of around six broadcasters running the Radio Kashmir amid the war waged by the Jhelum waters on Srinagar's radio and Doordarshan centres, which remain closed even after 12 days.

Broadcaster Jehangeer signed off on September 7 only when the whole staff rushed into the recording room warning of dangers as water rushed into the first floor of Radio Kashmir, situated next to Jhelum river. Later, technical staff was flown in from Delhi to run the station from the hill.
"Our colleagues, our families were equally calling us frantically to save them. One colleague Ishfaq Lone was stuck on the car top when water disallowed him to reach to the office. All families in Radio Kashmir Colony in Jawahar Nagar were as affected as anyone else but we continued to air people's hear-rending messages and call for help," said Jehangeer.

Though Radio Kashmir closed on Sunday last only to set up one-room station on the Shankar Acharya hill. "We have around 954 unread message still," said broadcasters Javeed Sofi and Shamshad Ahmad on Wednesday as they wrapped up morning session of airing people's message, seeking answers from administration and highlighting post-flood measures.
From connecting relatives, highlighting areas requiring rescue boats, food requirements for those stuck in mosques and post-flood situation --- Radio Kashmir ensured that hope lives through it and administration stays alive with it.

"We have aired all important announcements through this medium. I thank people for their praise worthy efforts to save people," said Srinagar deputy commissioner Farooq Shah.
At a time when internet was down, radio and television out of service, SMS and phone services knocked out, the Radio Kashmir proved only link even for stranded to stay alive and not panic.
"I used headphone to switch on Radio Kashmir on my mobile on Thursday, fifth day of my family stranding in the attic in Jawahar Nagar. The messages of rescue operation in my area, aired by the radio, kept me hopeful of surviving the catastrophe," said Muneer Ahmad, a bank employee.

From chief minister Omar Abdullah to ministers to state officials, Radio Kashmir has given rebirth to the stage administration that vanished into the thin air on the first three days of the crisis, starting September 7.
With all programmes suspended, only news and public messages are aired for around eight hours every day.
