CAT order to UT on food safetyofficer’s plea for appointment

Chandigarh, February 14
In an order passed today, the Central
Administrative Tribunal (CAT) today directed the
UT Administration to consider the UT’s senior-
most food safety officer for appointment as
designated officer under the Food Safety and
Standards Act and fill the post on a regular
basis in three months than filling it by way of
deputation.
The CAT disposed of the application filed by
Food Safety Officer Sukhwinder Singh, who had
moved the tribunal in 2011, seeking direction to
the UT administration for considering him for
the post. He had challenging the UT
Administration move to fill the post by way of
deputation.
Singh had claimed that he was the senior-most
food safety officer, thus was eligible to be
appointed a designated officer under the Food
Safety and Standards Act.
In his application in September 2011, He had
submitted: “The post of designated officer is
being occupied by an official who has come on
deputation, in addition to his own duties. He is
on deputation for medical services as SMO
from Haryana whereas as per the Act and
rules, a whole-time officer is required to be
appointed designated officer for performing
duties under the Food Safety and Standards
Act, 2006, and the rules framed thereunder in
2011.”
