who would write my probation report

There was a time my probation report was mired in controversy as to who would write my probation report for the second year

(1)          Suryanarayanan AD        currently posted in Com on Finance 9818110299                157, PHA

(2)          Arvind Sharma AD           currently in Coal and Steel, JPC on Security in Parliament Complex
                                                                9968073170                         140, PHA Flr 2

(1) On 4.5.2016 one of my Priority Questions was missing from the lot. Next day was the day for completing manuscripts. I called up the AD at extension number 5147 and asked about the question on Duty Free Shops in Airports. He said that there was no such question with him eventhough he remembered coming across such question.
Next day the bunch of Non-Priority question arriving from him contained the question by Sh Sadashiv Lokhande, MP. I was saved !!!
Conclusion - the AD was not a very good one for me.

(2) I never met him, nor spoken to him. But he was AD incharge of E-Group of Question Branch, atleast for a time during intersession period. On 21.7.2016 my wife was ill. I telephoned the DS that I wouldn't be able to attend office. Next day the DS wrote that awoken him from deep sleep and my not coming to office was termed by him as dereliction, wants explanation in writing. AD sent the file to EO incharge, who in turn told me about the same. I was scarred !!! In fact I was not given the chance to reply and talk about my side of the story. Soon after he was removed from Question Branch.
Conclusion - He done the service to the Branch with good faith. Still he was not good either.

However (1) really worked with the branch during the session period.

Therefor (1) was the right person to see my probation report

Scripture bunch

And they blessed Rebekah and said to her, "Our sister, may you increase to thousands upon thousands; may your offspring possess the cities of their enemies." Genesis 24:60
All my enemies whisper together against me; they imagine the worst for me, saying, Ps 41:7
But you give us victory over our enemies, you put our adversaries to shame. Psalms 44:7
For the director of music. Of David. A psalm. A song. May God arise, may his enemies be scattered; may his foes flee before him. Psslms 68:1
Don't you hear the uproar of your enemies? Don't you see that your arrogant enemies are rising up? Psalms 83:2
Those who hate me without reason outnumber the hairs of my head; many are my enemies without cause, those who seek to destroy me. I am forced to restore what I did not steal.

 Psalms 69:41:7

4 months and 13 days-

The Committee has observed that the Department's promptness in reacting to the reports of the Committee has declined over time. For Example the Committee's 18th Report on DFG (2012-13), was presented on 30 May, 2012. The Department took hardly 2 months to furnish their reply to the recommendations of the report. On the other hand, reply to the 16th Report on DFG(2017-18) of the Department, presented on 20 March, 2017 was furnished on 2 August, 2017 ie 4 months and 13 days later, thus showing staggering inefficiency.
