Are government corporations working without definite job descriptions?
An employee of Chandigarh Industrial and Tourism Development Corporation (CITCO) filed an application with the corporation in 2011 under the Right to Information (RTI) Act seeking to know his exact duties and job description.
As the CITCO failed to provide him the demanded information, the employee approached Central Information Commission (CIC). In the course of hearing of the case the Public Information Officer (CPIO) of the corporation accepted that the information sought by the appellant did not exist.
The CIC has admonished the corporation for working in absence of a proper job descriptions terming it against the good practices in administration and governance. The CIC has also directed the CITCO to formulate the job descriptions of the employees and upload it on its website. The said information is yet to be uploaded on CITCO website.
Are there other organisations working without specific job descriptions of the employees?
