Model Calendar for DPCs – Relevant year up to which APARs are to be considered and Model Calendar for conducting DPCs: DoPT Order

No. 2201 1/4/2013-Estt(D)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions
(Department of Personnel and Training)

New Delhi,
8th May, 2017

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Sub: Procedure to be observed by the Departmental Promotion Committees (DPCs) – Model Calendar for DPCs – Relevant year up to which APARs are to be considered and Model Calendar for conducting DPCs – regarding.

The undersigned is directed to invite reference to the Department of Personnel and Training OM of even number dated 8th September, 1998 prescribing a ‘Model Calendar‘ for DPCs in order to ensure that DPCs are convened in advance and approved select panels are ready on the date of commencement of the relevant vacancy year and that the last date for sending complete proposal to the UPSC is 15 July (in ACC cases) and 31 July (in non-ACC cases) of the year preceding the vacancy year.

2. Reference is further invited to the Department of Personnel and Training OM of even number dated 16th June, 2000 wherein it was prescribed/clarified that only such ACRs (now APARs) should be considered which became available during the year immediately preceding the vacancy/panel year irrespective of the date of convening of the DPC. In other words, for the vacancy/panel year 2000-01, it was prescribed that ACRs (now APARs) up to the year 1998-99 (five years preceding T-1st year) are required to be considered. Accordingly, for the vacancy year 2017-18, APARs up to the year 2015-16 are required to be considered.

3. Reference is also invited to the Department of Personnel and Training OM No. 22011/1/2005- Estt(A)-(Pt-II) dated 23rd July, 2009 on the subject ‘Preparation and Maintenance of APARs’ wherein a time schedule for preparation/completion of APAR has been prescribed. As per this schedule, entire APAR process is to be completed by 30th November of the year following the completion of time period of APAR year.

4. As per the extant instructions, say for vacancy year 2017-18, complete proposal to the UPSC has to be sent by 15 July, 2016 (in ACC cases) and 31 July, 2016 (in non-ACC cases) with APARs up to the year 2015-16. However, the entire process of recording APAR for the year 2015-16 is complete by 30th November, 2016 only. After the issue of guidelines regarding time schedule for completion of APAR, the time lines make it practically impossible to make the last APAR (the APAR of the year immediately preceding T-1th year) available for DPCs, i.e., the APAR for the year 2015-16 does not attain finality and thus may not be available before sending proposal for DPC for vacancy year 2017-18. in this background, the instructions regarding the procedure for convening DPCs have been reviewed in consultation with UPSC.

5. In order to streamline the process of timely convening of DPCs, it has been now decided that henceforth, the following changes may be effected in the DPC procedure in partial modification of this Department OM No. 22011/5/86-Estt.(D) dated 10.4.89, OM No. 22011/9/98-Estt.(D) dated 16.65.2000, OM No. 22011/9/98-Estt.(D) dated 8.9.98 and OM No. 22011/6/2013- Estt.(D) dated 28.5.2014(crucial date of eligibility):

(i) The vacancy year may be shifted to Calendar Year from the year 2018 onwards, wherever the financial year based vacancy year being followed now.

(ii) The crucial date of eligibility will be 1st of January of the Vacancy year w.e.f 2019.

(iii) The APARs for five years preceding T-2nd year may be taken as reckoning APARs, i.e. for the vacancy year 2019 (January 2019 to December, 2019), the reckoning APARs shall be 2016-17, 2015-16, 2014-15, 2013-14 and 2012-13.

(iv) The year of 2018 being the transitional year, the vacancy period shall be from 1st April 2018 to 31st December, 2018. The reckoning APARs for this vacancy year shall be 2015-16, 2014-15, 2013-14, 2012-13 and 2011-12. The crucial date of eligibility shall be 1st April, 2018 for the transitional year

6. Ministries/Departments are requested to give wide circulation to these instructions for guidance in the matter and also to ensure strict adherence to the time-schedule prescribed as per the ‘Model Calendar’ for DPCs.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Applicability of Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016 to persons re-employed in Government Service after retirement and whose pay is debitable to Civil Estimates

The pay fixation of re-employed pensioners on re-employment in Central
Government, including that of Defence Forces personnel/officers, is being done in accordance with Central Civil Services (Fixation of Pay of Re-employed Pensioners) Orders, 1986, issued vide this Department’s O.M. No. 3/1/85-Estt. (Pay II) dated 31st July, 1986 (as revised from time to time). Persons re-employed in Government service after retirement have been excluded from the purview of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016 vide Rule 2 (2)(vii) thereof. The question of extension of the benefit of the revised pay rules to these persons and the procedure to be followed for fixing their pay in the revised pay structure has been considered by the Government. The President is pleased to decide that, in partial modification of the Rule 2 (2)(vii) of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016, the provisions of these rules shall apply to such persons also who were in / came into re-employment on or after 1 st
January, 2016, subject to the orders hereinafter contained. This decision will cover all Government servants re-employed in Central Civil Departments other than those employed on contract except where the contract provides otherwise, whether they have retired with or without a pension and/or gratuity or any other retirement benefits, e.g. contributory fund etc. from a civil post or from the Armed Forces.

2. Re-employed persons who become eligible to elect revised pay structure in accordance with these orders should exercise their option in the manner laid down in Rule 5 and 6 of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016, within three months of the date of issue of these orders or in cases where the existing scales of pay of the posts held by them are revised subsequent to the issue of these orders, within three months of the date of such order.

Fixation / drawal of pay of Personnel / Officers re-employed prior to 01.01.2016 and who were in re-employment as on 01.01.2016:

3 (a) The initial pay of a re-employed Government servant who elects or is deemed to have elected to be governed by the revised pay structure from the 1 st day of January, 2016 shall be fixed according to the provisions of Rule 7 of the C.C.S. (R.P.) Rules, 2016, if he/she is-

(i) a Government servant who retired without receiving a pension, gratuity or any other retirement benefit and
(ii) a retired Government servant who received pension or any other retirement benefits but which were ignored while fixing pay on re-employment.

3(b) The initial pay of a re-employed Government servant who retired with a pension or any other retirement benefit and whose pay on re-employment was fixed with reference to these benefits or ignoring a part thereof, and who elects or is deemed to have elected to be governed by the revised structure from the 1 st day of January, 2016 shall be fixed in accordance with the provisions contained in Rule 7 of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016. Pension (excluding the ignorable portion of pension, if any), as defined in para 3(1) of CCS (Fixation of Pay of Re-employed Pensioners) Orders, 1986 admissible on relevant date, i.e. date of coming over to the revised pay structure, effective from 1.1.2016 or later, shall be deducted from his / her pay in accordance with the general policy of the Government on fixation and subsequent drawal of pay of re-employed pensioners.

3(c) In addition to the pay so fixed, the re-employed Government servant would continue to draw the retirement benefits he / she was permitted to draw in the prerevised scales, as modified based on the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission, orders in respect of which have been issued separately by the Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare.

3(d) Where a re-employed Government servant elects to draw his / her pay in the existing pay structure and is brought over to revised pay structure from a date later than the 1st day of January, 2016, his /her pay from the later date in the revised scale shall be fixed in accordance with the provisions of Rule 11 of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016.

4. Further, the existing ceiling of Rs. 80,000/- for drawal of pay plus gross pension on re-employment is enhanced to Rs.2,25,000/-, the maximum basic pay prescribed for Secretary to the Government of India under Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016.

Ignorable part of Pension

5. The President is also pleased to enhance the ignorable part of pension
from Rs. 4000/- to Rs. 15,000/- (Rupees Fifteen Thousand) in the case of Commissioned Service Officers and Civil Officers holding Group ‘A’ posts who retire before attaining the age of 55 years. The existing limits of civil and military pensions to be ignored in fixing the pay of re-employed pensioners will, therefore, cease to be applicable to cases of such pensioners as are re-employed on or after 1.1.2016.

6. In the case of persons who were already on re-employment as on 01.01.2016, the pay may be fixed on the basis of these orders, with effect from the date of coming over to the new pay structure, i.e. 01.01.2016 or later, as per the option exercised by them in terms of para 2 above. In such case, their terms would be determined afresh as if they have been re-employed for the first time from such date of coming over to the
new pay structure.

Fixation / drawal of pay of employees appointed on re-employment basis on or after 1stday of January, 2016

7. Pursuant to the introduction of the system of Pay Matrix vide the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016, the President is further pleased to amend the relevant provisions of CCS (Fixation of Pay of re-employed Pensioners) Orders, 1986 in the manner indicated below:

Existing provision (1986 Orders read with OM dated 5th April 2010) Revised provision
Para 4(a): Re-employed pensioners shall be allowed to draw pay only in the prescribed pay scale/pay structure of the post in which they are re-employed. No protection of the scales of pay/pay structure of the post held by them prior to retirement shall be given.Note: Under the provisions of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008, revised pay structure comprises the grade pay attached to the post and the applicable pay band. Order 4(a): Re-employed pensioners shall be allowed to draw pay only in the Level in the revised pay structure applicable to the post in which they are re-employed. No protection of the scales of pay/pay structure of the post held by them prior to retirement shall be given.Note: Revised pay structure in relation to a post will be as defined in Rule 3(ix) of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016.
Para 4(b)(i): In all cases where the pension is fully ignored, the initial pay on re-employment shall be fixed as per entry pay in the revised pay structure of the re-employed post applicable in the case of direct recruits appointed on or after 1.1.2006 as notified vide Section II, Part A of First Schedule to CCS (RP) Rules, 2008. Order 4(b)(i): In all cases where the pension is fully ignored, the initial pay on re-employment shall be fixed as per Rule 8 of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016.Note 1: The case where pension is fully ignored is given in Order 4 (d) below.

Note 2: Pension is fully ignored means that pension is not deducted from pay.

Para 4(b)(ii): In cases where the entire pension and pensionary benefits are not ignored for pay fixation, the initial basic pay on re-employment shall be fixed at the same stage as the last basic pay drawn before retirement. However, he shall be granted the grade pay of the reemployed post.

In all these cases, the nonignorable part of the pension shall be reduced from the pay so fixed.Illustration

A Colonel who retired with basic pay of Rs.61700 (grade pay Rs.8700; pay in the pay band Rs.53000) is re-employed as a Deputy Secretary in an organization with grade pay of Rs.7600. In this case, on reemployment, his basic pay will continue to be Rs.61700. However, his grade pay on re-employment will be Rs.7600 and the pay in the pay band Rs.54100. Thereafter, the non-ignorable part of the pension will be reduced from the pay so fixed.

Order 4(b)(ii): In cases where the entire pension and pensionary benefits are not ignored for pay fixation, the initial basic pay on re-employment shall be fixed at the same stage as the last basic pay drawn before retirement. If there is no such stage in the re-employed post, the pay shall be fixed at the stage next above that pay. If the maximum pay in the Level applicable to the post in which a pensioner is reemployed is less than the last basic pay drawn by him before retirement, his initial basic pay shall be fixed at such maximum pay of the re-employed post. Similarly, if the minimum pay in the Level applicable to the post in which a pensioner is reemployed is more than the last basic pay drawn by him before retirement, his initial basic pay shall be fixed at such minimum pay of the re-employed post. However, in all these cases, the non-ignorable part of the pension shall be reduced from the pay so fixed.Note 1: Revised pay structure in relation to a post will be as defined in Rule 3(ix) of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016.

Note 2: “Basic Pay” in the revised pay structure means the pay drawn in the prescribed Level in the Pay Matrix.

Note 3: Last pay drawn shall be as per definition of pre-retirement pay in terms of Order 3 of the CCS (Fixation of Pay of reemployed Pensioners) Orders, 1986, read with DoPT OM No. 3/19/2009-Estt.(Pay-II) dated 8th November 2010.

Para 4(c): The re-employed pensioner Order 4(c): No change will, in addition to pay as fixed under Para (b) above shall be permitted to draw separately any pension sanctioned to him and to retain any other form of retirement benefits. Order 4(c): No change
Para 4(d): In the case of persons retiring before attaining the age of 55 years and who are re-employed, pension (including PEG and other forms of retirement benefits) shall be ignored for initial pay fixation in the following extent:-(i) In the case of ex-servicemen who held posts below Commissioned Officer rank in the Defence Forces and in the case of civilians who held posts below Group ‘A’ posts at the time of their retirement, the entire pension and pension equivalent of retirement benefits shall be ignored.

(ii) In the case of Commissioned Service officers belonging to the Defence Forces and Civilian pensioners who held Group ‘A’ posts at the time of their retirement, the first Rs.4000/- of the pension and pension equivalent retirement benefits shall be ignored.

Order 4(d): In the case of persons retiring before attaining the age of 55 years and who are re-employed, pension (including PEG and other forms of retirement benefits) shall be ignored for pay fixation to the following extent:-(i) No change

(ii) In the case of Commissioned service officers belonging to the Defence Forces and Civilian pensioners who held Group ‘A’ posts at the time of their retirement, the first Rs. 15,000/- of the pension and pension equivalent retirement benefits shall be ignored.

8. Apart from the above, it is also clarified as under:

(i) Drawal of increments: Once the initial pay of the re-employed pensioner has been fixed in the manner indicated above, he will be allowed to draw normal increments as per the provisions of Rule 9 and 10 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 read with Order 5 of the CCS (Fixation of Pay of re-employed Pensioners) Orders, 1986.

(ii) Treatment of Military Service Pay (MSP): MSP is granted to Defence Forces officers/personnel while they are serving in the Defence Forces. Accordingly, on their re-employment in civilian organizations, including secret organizations under the Cabinet Secretariat umbrella, the question of grant of MSP to such officers/personnel does not arise. However, the benefit of MSP in the pension should not be withdrawn. Accordingly, while the pension of such re-employed pensioners will include the element of MSP, they will not be granted MSP as part of pay while working in civilian organizations. Also, in respect of all those Defence Officers / personnel, whose pension contains an element of MSP and whose pay on reemployment is subject to deduction of pension (excluding the  ignorable portion, if any), the element of MSP as contained in the pension shall be ignored while deducting the pension at the time of pay fixation. In other words, the MSP portion of the pension need not be deducted from the pay fixed on re-employment.

(iii) Fixation / drawal of pay of re-employed persons who retired prior to 1.1.2016 and who have been re-employed after 1.1.2016, and whose entire pension and pensionary benefits are not ignored for pay fixation: The pay on re-employment will be fixed in terms of Order 4(b)(ii) of the CCS (Fixation of Pay of Re-employed Pensioners) Orders, 1986, as amended above, after notionally arriving at their revised basic pay at the time of retirement as if they had retired under the revised pay structure, in terms of Rule 7 of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016. In all these cases, the nonignorable part of the pension shall be reduced from the pay so fixed. Regulation of MSP, however, shall be as per clarification in para 8(ii) above.

(iv) Fixation / drawal of pay in all other cases: Pay fixation in cases not covered in Order 4(d) will be as per the general principle of ‘pay minus pension’, i.e. while the last pay drawn shall be reckoned for pay fixation, the entire pension shall be deducted from the pay so fixed. Regulation of MSP, however, shall be as per clarification in para 8(ii) above.

9. An undertaking may be obtained from re-employed pensioners who opt / are deemed to have opted for the revised pay structure to the effect that, they understand and agree that the special dispensation provided through this O.M. is subject to the condition of deduction of pension as admissible to them from time to time, wherever required as per extant instructions.

10. These instructions shall apply in respect of those re-employed pensioners who are re-employed against civil posts carrying pay upto Level 17 of the Pay Matrix of CCS(RP) Rules, 2016.

11. In so far as the persons serving in the Indian Audit & Accounts Department are concerned, these orders are being issued after consultation with the Comptroller & Auditor General of India.

12. These orders shall take effect from 1.1.2016.

Bunching of stages in the Revised pay structure in the grade of Assistant Section Officers

Bunching of stages in the Revised pay structure in the grade of Assistant Section Officers

F.No.7/1/2017-CS-I(A)(Pt.)
Government of India

2nd Floor, Lok Nayak Bhawan

Dated 27.02.17

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Bunching of stages in the Revised pay structure in the grade of Assistant Section Officers – Reg.

DoP&T has been receiving many references from various Ministries/ Departments seeking clarification on the issue of grant of bunching to Assistant Section Officers of Central Secretariat Service in terms of Department of Expenditure’s O.M. dated 07.09.16.

2. It has also been noticed that there have been divergent views on the matter that while some Ministries/ Departments have given the benefit on their own, some other Ministries/ Departments have sought clarifications on various issues they are facing while giving the benefit of bunching in terms of DoE’s O.M. dated 07.09.16.

3. The matter has been taken up for further clarifications with Establishment Division/ Department of Expenditure briefly on the following issues:

i. While the Seventh Pay Commission had not prescribed different modes of pay fixation for Direct Recruit (DR) and Promotee ASOs, there have been two different modes of pay fixation for DR and Promotees prior to implementation of Seventh pay Commission. Due to differential methods of pay fixation, required differential of 3% is not calculable based on seniority alone as the other relevant facts of being DR/Promotee comes into play here.

ii. The manner of different pay fixation for DR ASO and promotee Assistants has been challenged in various court cases (viz. OA No.2147/2015, OA No. 150/2016, OA No.1015/2013 and OA No.476/2015 etc.)

4. It has already been decided to consult Department of Expenditure through Establishment (PEW) in the matter and same is under examination. Therefore, to ensure uniform implementation of Department of Expenditure’s instruction, all the Ministries/ Departments are advised to wait for further instructions with regard to grant of bunching benefits to ASOs of CSS and also if orders have already been issued by any Ministry/ Department, the same may not be given effect till further instructions.

5. This issues with the approval of competent authority.

Amendments to All India Service (Discipline & Appeals) Rules, 1969- Guidelines regarding adherence to timelines for Departmental Proceedings

Immediate

File No.106/7/2015-AVD.I(Part)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions
(Department of Personnel & Training)

New Delhi, Dated 15th March, 2017

To

1. The Chief Secretaries of All the State Governments / Union Territories
2. All the Cadre Controlling Authorities (as per standard list).

Subject: Amendments to All India Service (Discipline & Appeals) Rules, 1969- Guidelines regarding adherence to timelines for Departmental Proceedings.

Dear Sir / Madam,

Reference is invited to this Department’s Notification dated 20.01.2017 vide which amendments were made to the All India Service (Discipline & Appeal) Rules, 1969 by providing specific time frames for different stages of the inquiry process.

2. The salient features of the amendments are:

i. Introduction of time frame in Rule 8(5) providing the Charged Officer (CO) a period of 30 days for submission of his representation on the chargesheet served on him. The period may be extended by another 30 days by the Disciplinary Authority (DA) for reasons to be recorded in writing. Under no circumstances, the extension shall exceed 90 days from the date of receipt of the Articles of Charge.

ii. Insertion of new Sub-rule 8(25) (a), (b) & (c) whereby the Inquiring Authority should conclude the inquiry and submit his report within six months from the date of appointment. Any further extension of time would be permissible, six months at a time with the approval of the DA or any authority authorised by the DA on his behalf for reasons to be recorded in writing by Inquiring Authority.

iii. Introduction of time frame of 15 days for submission of the representation by the charged officer on the advice of UPSC regarding quantum of penalty proposed. This period can be extended by 15 days by the DA for reasons to be recorded in writing. Under no circumstances, the extension shall exceed 45 days from the date of receipt of the Articles of Charge.

3. In view of the introduction of time frames as elaborated in paragraph 2, all the State Governments / Union Territories and Cadre Controlling Authorities are advised to adopt the following measures so that the time frames can be strictly adhered to and the inquiry process can be completed expeditiously.

i. All listed documents on the basis of which the proposed disciplinary proceeding is to be initiated must be in the custody of the DA.

ii. In case disciplinary proceedings are initiated simultaneously with criminal proceedings on the same set of charges, a copy of all the documents and files should be kept in the custody of the DA prior to handing over the records, in case the said records are to be submitted in a court of law. In this regard, CVC OM No. 3(v)/99/7 dated 6 th September, 1999 may be referred to.

iii. Care may be taken to ensure that all listed documents are provided to the charged officer along with the chargesheet to enable him to submit his representation within the stipulated time.

iv. The date of serving notice on the CO seeking his representation should be duly noted and acknowledgement of the same should be retained in records as well as communicated to the Central Government in case departmental proceedings are initiated by the Central Government as well as in the departmental proceedings forwarded to the Central Government for imposition of major penalties under rule 6.

v. The chargesheet / advice of UPSC served on the CO may clearly indicate that in the absence
of a Statement of Defence or comments on the advice from the CO within the stipulated time frame as mentioned in Rule 8(5) and Rule 9(5) or a request from CO for extension of time, it would be assumed that the CO has no views to offer.

vi. During the course of inquiry, where the CO seeks additional documents, the JO may decide on the relevance of the documents so sought expeditiously. The JO may be advised to procure the permitted additional documents from the custodian Department I Ministry and supply copies of documents to CO within one month. In case of delays at the level of the Department / Ministry, the same may be brought to the notice of the DA by the JO to resolve the issue

expeditiously and DA should issue a non-availability certificate with regard to the documents which are not available.

vii. The time taken during the inquiry process may be regularly monitored and a register of all pending inquiries may be maintained. The JO should be advised to complete the inquiry within six months. However, if he is unable to do so for any good and sufficient reasons, he should make a request for extension in terms of new sub-rule 8 (25) to the DA well within the stipulated time frame. Every such extension must be approved by the DA before expiry of the six months time period.

viii. As per Rule 7 of the AIS (D&A) Rules, 1969, the Competent Authority is the State Government itself to institute proceedings if the act of omission was while the CO was serving in connection with the affairs of a State Government. Hence, the DA for granting extension for submitting the representation by the CO on the chargesheet [Rule 5 (b)] as well as extension of the inquiry for a further period of six months at a time [Rule 8 (25) (a)] is the State Government in all such cases.

ix. As per Rule 8 (22) (a) where a State Government on completion of the inquiry is of the opinion that a major penalty under Rule 6 is to be imposed on the member of service, the records are forwarded to the Central Government for imposition of the major penalties under Rule 6. In such cases, the Competent Authority for granting extension to the CO for submitting his representation on the advice of UPSC will be the Central Government.

x. The DA may authorise any authority subordinate to him to grant extension of time period as elaborated in paragraph 2 above on his behalf.

xi. The CCA / State Governments should appoint a Nodal Officer of the rank of Under Secretary, Government of India / UTs with contact details (mobile / e-mail / fax) for effective coordination between the Central and the State Governments.

Yours faithfully,
(Kavitha P manabhan)
