(i) By defining the comparable level of experience suitably.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject:- Procedure for booking of air-tickets on LTC – compliance of instructions regarding.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s O.M. No. 31011/5/2014-Estt.A-IV dated 24.09.2014, 23.09.2015 and 21.08.2017 on the procedure for booking of air tickets on LTC and to say that as per the extant instructions, whenever a Government servant claims LTC by air, he/she is required to book the air tickets directly from the airlines (Booking counters, website of airlines) or by utilizing the services of the authorized travel agents viz. ‘M/s Balmer Lawrie & Company’, ‘M/s Ashok Travels & Tours’ and ‘IRCTC’ (to the extent IRCTC is authorized as per DoPT O.M. No. 31011/6/2002-Est(A) dated 02.12.2009) while undertaking LTC journey(s).

2. In this regard, it is observed that despite reiterating the above instructions from time to time, this Department still continues to receive numerous references from various Ministries/Departments and individuals seeking relaxation for booking of air tickets for the purpose of LTC through private travel agents. In most of the cases, the common reasons cited by the Government employees are lack of awareness of the rules and work exigencies.

3. Therefore, all the Ministries/Departments are advised to ensure wide circulation and strict compliance of the guidelines stated in para 1 of this OM. This point may also be emphasized by the Administration whenever any advance is sought or intention to avail LTC is conveyed by the Government servant. It is stated that henceforth only those cases, where it is established that bonafide mistake has occured and the Administrative Ministry/Department is satisfied that undue hardship is being caused to the Government servant, shall be considered by this Department for relaxation provided that the information is received in the Proforma enclosed along with supporting documents.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Launching /Introduction of UPSC module in RRFAMS portal – reg.

The undersigned is directed to say that the RRFAMS portal has been in operation since 25.12.2016 for framing/amendment of Recruitment Rules by DOP&T.

The proposals received on this portal are scrutinized in DOP&T through online consultation with the user ministries/departments. Once the RRs become error free, approval of DOPT is conveyed through the system. Simultaneously, the Recruitment Rules are also frozen. Under the existing system after the RRs are frozen, the Ministries/Departments send the proposals along with necessary Annexure, hierarchy chart etc. in physical file to UPSC and DoLA.

2. As a next step towards achieving automation i.e. end-to-end processing and approval of RRs by the nodal Ministries, DOP&T in consultation with UPSC has now developed a module under RRFAMS for holding consultation with UPSC. In the new system after the RRs are approved and frozen by DOPT, the same shall be transmitted to UPSC and will be visible to Administrative Ministry/Department. The new system will be in operation w.e.f 03.12.2018 in test mode and will be formally pushed into service on 25.12.20 18. The comments/approval of UPSC will be conveyed through the system itself.

3. With the introduction of UPSC module, the requirement of sending proposal on physical files to UPSC after DOPT approval will be dispensed with.

4. In this regard it is also to say that some additional tabs have also been added at user end (Ministries/departments end) of the portal such as Information on Court cases, RRs of the promotional post etc for facilitating UPSC consultation. Therefore it is requested that the Administrative Ministry/Department, while initiating the proposal, may submit complete proposals by filling all the information’s sought to DOPT. Administrative Ministries/Departments are also requested to keep close watch on the RRFAMS portal regarding their proposals as the information regarding MR meeting, comments of UPSC etc will be conveyed through the RRFAMS portal w.e.f 25.12.2018.

Department of Personnel & Training

North Block, New Delhi,
Dated the 12th November, 2018

Subject: All India Protest Day for 26th November, 2018 – Instructions under CCS (Conduct Rules), 1964 – Regarding

It has been brought to the notice of the Government that National Movement for Old Pension Scheme (NMOPS) has decided to observe ‘Gherao of Parliament House’ on 26th November, 2018 in order to demand withdrawal of New Pension Scheme (NPS).

2. The instructions issued by the Department of Personnel and Training prohibit the Government servants from participating in any form of strike including mass casual leave, go slow etc. or any action that abet any form of strike/protest in violation of Rule 7 of the CCS (Conduct) Rules, 1964. Besides, in accordance with the proviso to Rule 17(1) of the Fundamental Rules, pay and allowances is not admissible to an employee for his absence from duty without any authority. As to the concomitant rights of an Association after it is formed, they cannot be different from the rights which can be claimed by the individual members of which the Association is composed. It follows that the right to form an Association does not include any guaranteed right to strike/protest. There is no statutory provision empowering the employees to go on strike. The Supreme Court has also agreed in several judgments that going on a strike is a grave misconduct under the Conduct Rules and that misconduct by the Government employees is required to be dealt with in accordance with law. Any employee going on strike in any form would face the consequences which, besides deduction of wages, may also include appropriate disciplinary action. Kind attention of all employees of this Department is also drawn to this Department’s O.M. No.33012/1 /(s)/2008- Estt.(B) dated 12.9.2008, on the subject for strict compliance (enclosed as Annexure-A).

3. All officers are requested that the above instructions may be brought to the notice of the employees working under their control. All officers are also requested not to sanction Casual Leave or any other kind of leave to the officers and employees, if applied for, during the period of proposed protestlGherao, and ensure that the willing employees are allowed hindrance free entry into the office premises.

4. In case employees go on protest/Gherao, all Divisional Heads are requested to forward a report indicating the number and details of employees, who are absent from duty in the day of protest/Gherao, i.e., 26.11.2018.
