OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Online generation and recording of Annual Performance Assessment Report (APAR) on SPARROW for CSS & CSSS Group A officers – Extension of timelines for completion of APAR for the financial year 2017-18.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s O.M. No.21 011/1/2005/Estt.(A) (Pt.II) dated 23rd July, 2009 vide which various date-lines for recording of APARs have been defined.

2. It has been experienced that while recording of APAR for the financial year 2017-18 on SPARROW web portal, some of the cadre controlling authorities of CSS & CSSS Group ‘A’ officers are facing practical difficulties in getting the self-appraisal of the officers under their cadre due to technical reasons and also pre-occupation of Nodal Officers & ORU with urgent time-bound assignments. It has therefore, been decided that the target dates prescribed in the above referred O.M., be further relaxed as a one time measure only for online generation, filling up of self-appraisal, reporting, reviewing and acceptance of APAR in respect of CSS & CSSS Group ‘A’ officers for the financial year 2017-18 through SPARROW web portal. The revised target dates for recording of APAR online for the financial year 2017-18 is annexed. This relaxation is subject to the condition that no remarks shall be recorded in the APAR for the year 2017-18 after 31 .12.2018. Where the reporting , reviewing and acceptance authority fail to record their comments within the time frame, the officer may be assessed on the basis of the overall record and self assessment for the financial year 2017-18, if he/she has submitted his/her self-assessment within the stipulated time.

3. This issues with the approval of Secretary (P).

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Sub : Provision regarding mandatory cooling off period between two deputations for appointment in the personal staff of Union Ministers – Reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s OM No. 6/8/ 2009- Estt.(Pay-11) dated 17th June, 2010 on the above subject which provides that there shall be a mandatory ‘cooling off’ period of three years after every period of deputation /foreign service upto Joint Secretary level posts and one year for Additional Secretary level posts.

2. References are received m this Department from various Ministries/ Departments seeking relaxation in respect of provisions of ‘cooling off period between two deputations inter-alia for appointments in the personal staff of Union Ministers.

3. The issue of provision of cooling off period in the cases of appointments in personal staff of Union Ministers has been considered in this Department. Keeping in view the urgency of functional requirement in office of Union Ministers, it has been decided to dispense with the requirement of completion of mandatory ‘cooling off period in respect of officers selected for personal staff of Union Ministers by amending Para 8.4 of this Department’s OM No. 6/8/ 2009-Estt.(Pay-II) dated 17.06.2010, so as to read as under :-

“8.4. There shall be a mandatory ‘cooling off’ period of three year after every period of deputation /foreign service for Joint Secretary and below level officers and one year for Additional Secretary level officers. The requirement of cooling off shall, however, not be insisted upon for appointment in personal staff of Union Ministers. However, those officers who have not completed the required ‘cooling off period from previous deputation and are posted in personal staff of Minister will have to revert to their parent cadre once their term in the personal staff of Minister ends for whatever reason. A prior consent may be obtained from such officers that they are willing to be appointed in personal staff of Minister in waiver of “cooling off’ requirement, fully aware of the condition that they would be reverted back to their parent cadre once their term in personal staff of Minister ends for whatever reason and they will have to complete the “cooling off’ period afresh.

Provided, if an officer is appointed from the personal staff of one Minister to the personal staff of another Minister, the cooling off shall not be insisted upon subject to overall ceiling of 10 years in personal staff of Minister and sub-ceiling of 5 years as PS/ OSD.

Provided further that the officers who are appointed in the personal staff of Minister after completion of required cooling off period from the previous deputation can be appointed to another deputation, in continuation of deputation in the personal staff of Ministers, if duly selected, subject to overall ceiling of deputation, other conditions relating to deputation and NOC of the parent cadre/ organisation. The admissibility of Deputation (Duty) Allowance will, however, be only upto 5th year counting from the initial deputation.”

4. In so far as persons serving in the Indian Audit and Accounts Department are concerned, these orders issue after consultation with the Comptroller and Auditor General of India.

5. This amendment shall be effective from the date of issue of this O.M.

Office Memorandum

Subject: Recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission – Implementation of decisions relating to the grant of Children Education Allowance (CEA) and Hostel Subsidy – Consolidated instructions.

Consequent upon the decisions taken by the Government to implement the recommendations made by the VII Central Pay Commission, this Department has issued an OM of even number dated 16-8-2017 revising the rates of CEA/Hostel Subsidy and simplifying the procedure for claiming reimbursement of the same. However this Department has been receiving various queries regarding CEA/Hostel Subsidy especially with regard to the applicability of various provision/instructions issued during sixth CPC regime/period. Further references have also been received regarding the difficulty being faced by some government employees in obtaining certificate of the Head of the

Institution as mentioned in this Department’s OM of even number dated 16-8-2017.

2. Keeping in view the above, it has been decided to issue consolidated instructions in supersession of all earlier OMs on the subject of Children Education Allowance and Hostel subsidy as under:-

a) The reimbursement of Children Education Allowance/Hostel subsidy can be claimed only for the two eldest surviving children with the exception that in case the second child birth results in twins/multiple birth. In case of failure of sterilization operation, the CEA/Hostel Subsidy would be admissible in respect of children born out of the first instance of such failure beyond the usual two children norm.

b) The amount for reimbursement of Children Education allowance will be Rs.2250/- per month (fixed) per child. This amount of Rs.2250/- is fixed irrespective of the actual expenses incurred by the Govt. Servant. In order to claim reimbursement of CEA, the Govt. servant should produce a certificate issued by the Head of the Institution for the period/year for which claim has been preferred. The certificate should confirm that the child studied in the school during the previous academic year. In case such certificate can not be obtained, self- attested copy of the report card or self attested fee receipt(s){including e-receipt(s)} confirming/indicating that the fee deposited for the entire academic year can be produced as a supporting document to claim CEA. The period/year means academic year i.e. twelve months of complete academic session.

c) The amount of ceiling of hostel subsidy is Rs.6750/- pm. In order to claim reimbursement of Hostel Subsidy for an academic year, a similar certificate from the Head of Institution confirming that the child studied in the school will suffice, with additional requirement that the certificate should mention the amount of expenditure incurred by the Government servant towards lodging and boarding in the residential

complex. In case such certificate cannot be obtained, self attested copy of the report card and original fee receipt(s)/e-receipt(s) which should indicate the amount of expenditure incurred by the Government servant towards lodging and boarding in the residential complex can be produced for claiming Hostel Subsidy: The expenditure on boarding and lodging or the ceiling of Rs.6750/- as mentioned above, whichever is lower, shall be paid to the employee as Hostel Subsidy. The period/year will mean the same as explained above in clause (b) of this para.

d) The reimbursement of Children Education Allowance for Divyaang children of government employees shall be payable at double the normal rates of CEA prescribed above in clause (b) i.e. Rs.4500/- per month (fixed).

e) The above rates/ceiling would be automatically raised by 25% every time the Dearness Allowance on the revised pay structure goes up by 50%.

f) The Hostel Subsidy and Children Education Allowance can be claimed concurrently.

g) In case both the spouses are Government servants, only one of them can avail reimbursement under Children Education Allowance and Hostel Subsidy.

h) The reimbursement of CEA and Hostel Subsidy will be done just once in a financial year after completion of the financial year.

i) Hostel subsidy is applicable only in respect of the child studying in a residential educational institution located at least 50 kilometers from the residence of the Government servant.

j) The reimbursement of Children Education Allowance and Hostel Subsidy shall have no nexus with the performance of the child in his class. In other words, even if a child fails in a particular class, the reimbursement of Children Education Allowance/Hostel Subsidy shall not be stopped. However, if the child is admitted in the same class in another school, although the child has passed out of the same class in previous school or in the mid-session, CEA shall not be reimbursable.

k) If a Government servant dies while in service, the Children Education Allowance or hostel subsidy shall be admissible in respect of his/her children subject to observance of other conditions for its grant provided the wife/husband of the deceased is not employed in service of the Central Govt., State Government, Autonomous body, PSU, Semi Government Organization such as Municipality, Port Trust Authority or any other organization partly or fully funded by the Central Govt./State Governments. In such cases the CEA/Hostel Subsidy shall be payable to the children till such time the employee would have actually received the same, subject. to the condition that other terms and conditions are fulfilled. The payment shall be made by the office in which the Government servant was working prior to his death and will be regulated by the other conditions, laid down in this OM.

I) In case of retirement, discharge, dismissal or removal from service, CEA/Hostel Subsidy shall be admissible till the end of the academic year in which the Government servant ceases to be in service due to retirement, discharge, dismissal or removal from service in the course of an academic year. The payment shall be made by the office in which the government servant worked prior to these events and will be regulated by the other conditions laid down in this OM.

m) The upper age limit for Divyaang children has been set at 22 years. In the case of other children the age limit will be 20 years or till the time of passing 12th class whichever is earlier. There shall be no minimum age.

n) Reimbursement of CEA and Hostel Subsidy shall be applicable for children from class nursery to twelfth, including classes eleventh and twelfth held by Junior Colleges or schools affiliated to Universities or Boards of Education.

0) CEA is allowed in case of children studying through “Correspondence or Distance Learning” subject to other conditions laid down herein.

p) The CEA and Hostel Subsidy is admissible in respect of children studying from two classes before class one to 12th standard and also for the initial two years of a diploma/certificate course from Polytechnic/ITI/Engineering College, if the child pursues the course after passing 10th standard and the Government servant has not been granted CEA/ Hostel Subsidy in respect of the child for studies in I1th and 12th standards.
q) In respect of schools/institutions at nursery, primary and middle level not affiliated to any Board of education, the reimbursement under the Scheme may be allowed for the children studying in a recognized school/institution. Recognized school/institution in this regard means a Government school or any education institution whether in receipt of Govt. Aid or not, recognized by the Central or State Government or Union Territory Administration or by University or a recognized educational authority having jurisdiction over the area where the institution/school is situated.

r) In case of a Divyaang child studying in an institution i.e. aided or approved by the Central/State Govt. or UT Administration or whose fees are approved by any of these authorities, the Children Education Allowance paid by the Govt. servant shall be reimbursed irrespective of whether the institution is ‘recognized’ or not. In such cases the benefits will be admissible till the child attains the age of 22 years.

s) The CEA is payable for the children of all Central Government employees including citizens of Nepal[ and Bhutan, who are employees of Government of India, and whose children are studying in the native place. However, a certificate may be obtained from the concerned Indian Mission that the school ‘ is recognized by the educational authority having jurisdiction over the area where the institution is situated.

t) The Children Education Allowance or hostel subsidy shall be admissible to a Govt. servant while he/she is on duty or is under suspension or is on leave (including extra ordinary leave). Provided that during any period which is treated as ‘dies non’ the Govt. servant shall not be eligible for the CEA/Hostel subsidy for that period.

3. These above instructions would come into effect from 1st July, 2017.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Master Circular on Probation /Confirmation in Central Services-reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s OM No. 28020/1/2010 dated 21.07.2014 on the above subject and to say that guidelines/instructions regarding Probation and Confirmation have been issued from time to time. It is now proposed to further consolidate these instructions to provide clarity and ease of reference.

Under Secretary to the Government of India

MASTER CIRCULAR ON PROBATION AND CONFIRMATION IN CENTRAL SERVICES PROBATION

1. A person is appointed on probation in order to assess his suitability for absorption in the service to which he has been appointed. Probation should not, therefore, be treated as a mere formality. No formal declaration shall be necessary in respect of appointment on probation. The appointing authority may declare successful completion, extend the period of probation or terminate the services of a temporary employee on probation, on the basis of evaluation of performance.

2. Probation is prescribed when there is direct recruitment, promotion from one Group to another or for officers re-employed before the age of superannuation. The probation shall stand successfully completed on issue of orders in writing. It is, however, not desirable that a Government servant should be kept on probation for long periods.

3. Instead of treating probation as a formality, the existing powers to discharge probationers should be systematically and vigorously used so that the necessity of dispensing with the services of employees at later stages may arise only rarely.

4. Concentration of attention on the probationer’s ability to pass the probationary or the departmental examination, if applicable, is essential part of the qualification for confirmation but not the most important part. There should be a very careful assessment of the outlook, character and aptitude for the kind of work that has to be done in the service before a probationer is confirmed.

5. A probationer should be given an opportunity to work under more than one officer during this period and reports of his work obtained from each one of those officers. The probation reports for the whole period may then be considered is fit to be confirmed in service. For this purpose, separate forms of report on the probationers should be used, which are distinct from the usual Annual Performance Appraisal Report (APAR) forms. The probation reports, unlike APAR, are written to help the supervising officer to concentrate on the special needs of probation and to decide whether the work and conduct of the officer during the period of probation or the extend period of probation are satisfactory enough to warrant his further retention in service or post. The probation reports thus do not serve the purpose for which the APARs are written and vice versa. Therefore, in the case of all probationers or officers on probation, separate probation reports should be written in addition to the usual APARs for the period of probation.

6. Save for exceptional reasons, probation should not be extended for more than a year and in no circumstance an employee should be kept on probation for more than double the normal period.

7. A probationer, who is not making satisfactory progress, should be informed of his shortcomings well before the expiry of the original probationary period so that he can make special efforts at self-improvement. This can be done by giving him a written warning to the effect that his general performance has not been such as to justify his confirmation and that, unless he showed substantial improvement within a specified period, the question of discharging him would have to be considered. Even though this is not required by the rules, discharge from the service being a server, final and irrevocable step, the probationer should be given an opportunity before taking the drastic step of discharge.

8. During the period of probation, or any extension thereof, candidates may be required by Government to undergo such courses of training and instructions and to pass examinations, and tests (including examination In Hindi) as Government may deem fit, as a condition to satisfactory completion of the probation.

MANDATORY INDUCTION TRAINING

9. In all cases of direct recruitment there should be a mandatory induction training of at lest two weeks duration. Successful completion of the training may be made a pre-requisite for completion of probation. The syllabus for the training may be prescribed by the Cadre authorities and the Training Division of DOPT can be consulted, if required. The recruitment rules for all posts, wherever such a provision does not already exist, may be amended to provide for such mandatory training. Till such time as the Recruitment Rules are amended, a clause on the above lines may be included in the offer of appointment.

PERIOD OF PROBATION

The period of probation is prescribed for different posts/services in Central Government on the following lines:

S.No Method of appointment Period of probation
Promotion
1. Promotion from one grade to another but within the same group of posts e.g. from Group ‘C’ to Group ‘C’. No probation.
2. Promotion from one Group to another e.g. Group ‘B’ to Group ‘A’ 2 years or the period
of probation prescribed for the direct recruitment to the post, if any.
DIRECT RECRUITMENT
3. (I) For direct recruitment to posts except clause (ii) below
(ii) For direct recruitment to posts *carrying a Grade Pay of Rs. 7600 or above or to the posts to which the maximum age limit is 35 years or above and where no training is involved,
Note: Training includes on the job or ‘Institution training’
2 years
1 year
4. Officers re-employed before the age of superannuation 2 years
5. Appointment on contract basis, tenure basis, re-employment after superannuation and absorption No probation

(A) DIRECT RECRUITMENT

If a Government servant is appointed to another post by direct recruitment either in the same department or a different department, it may be necessary to consider him for confirmation in the new post in which he has been appointed by direct recruitment irrespective of the fact that the officer was holding the earlier post on a substantive basis. Further confirmation in the new entry grade becomes necessary because the new post may not be in the same line or discipline as the old post in which he has been confirmed and the fact that he was considered suitable for continuance in the old post (which was the basis for his confirmation in that post) would not automatically make him suitable for continuance in the new post the Job requirements of which may be quite different from those of the old post.

(B) PROMOTION

(i) Persons who are inducted into a new service through promotion shall also be placed on probation but there shall be no probation on promotion from one grade to another but within the same group of posts, except when the promotion involves a change in the Group of posts in the same service, e.g. promotion from Group ‘B’ to Group ‘A’ in which case the probation would be for the prescribed period.

(ii) If the recruitment rules do not prescribe any probation, an officer appointed on regular basis (after following the prescribed DPC procedure, etc.) will have all the benefits that a person confirmed in that grade would have.

(C) APPOINTMENT ON CONTRACT BASIS, TENURE BASIS, RE-EMPLOYMENT AFTER SUPERANNUATION AND ABSORPTION

There shall be no probation in the cases for appointment on contract basis, tenure basis, re-employment after superannuation and absorption.

LEAVE TO PROBATIONER, A PERSON ON PROBATION

1. A person appointed to a post on probation shall be entitled to leave under the rules as a temporary or a permanent Government servant according as his appointment is against a temporary or a permanent post. Where such person already holds a lien on a permanent post before such appointment, he shall be entitled to leave as a permanent Government servant.

2. The period of joining time availed of by a probationer on return from leave should be counted towards the prescribed period of probation if but for the leave, he would have continued to officiate in the post to which he was appointed.

3. If, for any reason, it is proposed to terminate the services of a probationer, any leave which may be granted to him shall not extend

(i) Beyond the date on which the probation period as already sanctioned or extended expires, or

(ii) Beyond any earlier date on which his services are terminated by the orders of an authority competent to appoint him.

 

EXTENSION OF PROBATION PERIOD

4. If during the period of probation, a probationer has not undergone the requisite training course or passed the requisite departmental examinations prescribed [proficiency in Hindi, etc.), if any, the period of probation may be extended by such period or periods as may be necessary, subject to the condition that the total period of probation does not exceed double the prescribed period of probation.

5. The Appointing Authority may, if it so thinks fit, extend the period of probation of a Government servant by a specified period but the total period of probation does not exceed double the normal period. In such cases, periodic reviews should be done and extension should not be done for a long period at one time.

6. Where a probationer who has completed the period of probation to the satisfaction of the Central Government is required to be confirmed, he shall be confirmed in the Service/Post at the end of his period of probation, having been completed satisfactorily.

7. Some employees are not able to complete the probation on account of availing leave for long duration during probation period. In such cases if an employee does not complete 75% of the total duration prescribed for probation on account of availing any kind of leave as permissible to a probationer under the Rules, his/her probation period may be extended by the length of the Leave availed, but not exceeding double the prescribed period of probation.

TERMINATION OF PROBATION

8. The decision whether an employee should be confirmed or his probation extended should be taken soon after the expiry of the initial probationary period, that is within six to eight weeks, and communicated to the employee together with the reasons in case of extension. A probationer who is not making satisfactory progress or who shows himself to be inadequate for the service in any way should be informed of his shortcomings well before the expiry of the original probationary period so that he can make special efforts at self-improvement

9. On the expiry of the period of probation, steps should be taken to obtain the assessment reports on the probationer to:-

i. Confirm the probationer/issue orders regarding satisfactory termination of probation, as the case may be, if the probation has been completed to the satisfaction of the competent authority; or

ii. Extend the period of probation or discharge the probationer or terminate the services of the probationer as the case may be, in accordance with the relevant rules and orders, if the probationer has not completed the period of probation satisfactorily.

10. In order to ensure that delays do not occur in confirmation, timely action must be initiated in advance so that the time limit is adherred to.

11. If it appears to the Appointing Authority, at any time, during or at the end of the period of probation that a Government servant has not made sufficient use of his opportunities or is not making satisfactory progress, the Appointing Authority may revert him to the post held substantively by him immediately preceding his appointment, provided he holds a lien thereon or in other cases may discharge or terminate him from service.

12. A Probationer reverted or discharged from service during or at the end of the period of probation shall not be entitled to any compensation.

CONFIRMATION

13. If, during the period of a probation or any extension thereof, as the case may be Government is of the opinion that an officer is not fit for permanent appointment, Government may discharge or revert the officer to the post held by him prior to his appointment in the service, as the case may be.

14. Confirmation will be made only once in the service of an official which will be in the entry grade post/service/cadre provided further confirmation shall be necessary when there is fresh entry subsequently in any other post/service/cadre by way of direct recruitment or otherwise. Confirmation is de linked from the avialbility of permanent vacancy in the grade. In other words, an officer who has successfully completed the probation, as prescribed under relevant rules, may be considered for confirmation. A specific order of confirmation will be issued when the case is cleared from all angels.

15. On satisfactory completion of the period of probation or extension thereof, the Government may confirm a temporary Government servant to his appointment from the date of completion of the period of his probation or extension thereof.

16. The date from which confirmation should be given effect to is the date following the date of satisfactory completion of the prescribed period of probation or the extended period of probation, as the case may be. The decision to confirm the probationer or to extend the period of probation as the case may be should be communicated to the probationer normally within 6 to 8 weeks. Confirmation of the probationer after completion of the period of probation is not automatic but is to be followed by formal orders. As long as no specific orders of confirmation or satisfactory completion of probation are issued to a probationer, such a probationer shall be deemed to have continued on probation.

17. Some employees are not able to complete the probation on account of availing leave for long duration during probation period. In such cases if an employee does not complete 75% of the total duration prescribed for probation on account of availing any kind of leave as permissible to a probationer under the Rules, his/her probation period may be extended by the length of the Leave availed, but not exceeding double the prescribed period of probation.

TERMINATION OF PROBATION

18. The decision whether an employee should be confirmed or his probation extended should be taken soon after the expiry of the initial probationary period, that is within six to eight weeks, and communicated to the employee together with the reasons in case of extension.

28. Where probation on promotion is prescribed, the appointing authority will on completion of the prescribed period of probation assess the work and conduct of the officer himself and in case the conclusion is that the officer is fit to hold the higher grade, he will pass on order declaring that the person concerned has successfully completed the probation. If the appointing authority considers that the work of the officer has not been satisfactory or needs to be watched for some more time he may revert him to the post/service/cadre from which he was promoted, or extend the period of probation, as the case may be.

29. Since there will be no confirmation on promotion before an official is declared to have completed the probation satisfactorily, rigorous screening of his performance should be made and there should be no hesitation to revert a person to the post or grade from which he was promoted if the work of the officer during probation has not been satisfactory.

30. A Government servant appointed by transfer would duly have been confirmed in the earlier post. In such a case further confirmation in the new post would not be necessary and he could be treated as permanent in the new post. Where, however, a Government servant who has not already been confirmed in the old post is appointed by transfer, it would be necessary to confirm him in the new post. In such case, he may be considered for confirmation after watching him for two years. Within that period of two years, the officer would earn two reports in the new grade and the DPC may consider his case for confirmation on the basis of these APARs.
