Govt lays down specific ‘timeline’ for completing enquiry against officers and members of All India Services

Government has laid down specific timeline for completing enquiry against officers and members of All India Services (AIS) within a given deadline, in a time-bound manner. Giving details about the DoPT (Department of Personnel & Training) decision, Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh said that the AIS (D&A) Rules, 1969 have been amended to provide specific timelines at different stages of the enquiry, with a view to complete the disciplinary proceedings against the members of All India Services in a time-bound manner.
As per the amended rules, a time limit of six months has been fixed for completion of departmental enquiry and submission of report. In case it is not possible to complete the enquiry within six months for justifiable reasons to be recorded in writing, additional time limit not exceeding six months at one time can be granted by the Disciplinary Authority, thereby ensuring accountability for completion of enquiry. Further, 30 days’ timeline has been fixed for the delinquent officers to give his representation to the charge-sheet which can be extended to not more than 30 days by the Disciplinary Authority and, in any case, no extension will be provided beyond 90 days. Similarly, a period of 15 days has been provided to send a representation on the advice of UPSC regarding the penalty to be imposed on the delinquent officer and for such representation also, no extension will be provided beyond 45 days.
Dr Jitendra Singh said, this amendment in the All India Service Rules has been brought, in keeping with the spirit of the Union Government led by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, to bring in more accountability and time-bound completion of every exercise in the course of governance. The new amendment in the Rules, he said, will certainly strengthen the culture of working within deadlines and timelines without showing any slackness.
Meanwhile, Chairperson, Uttar Pradesh State Social Welfare Board (UPSSWB), Dr (Ms) Rupal Agarwal today called on Dr Jitendra Singh and provided her assessment about the performance of the various functionaries in the Board. She also brought to the notice of the Minister acts of omission or commission by certain officials. Dr Jitendra Singh took a note of the different issues raised by Dr Rupal Agarwal. He said, the Central Government accords high priority to programmes relating to upliftment of women, children and poor sections of the society. He also assured her that the issues raised by her will be brought to the notice of the concerned quarters.

Review of payment function of Group Insurance of All India Services through E-payment.

F.No.11024/56/2012.A1S-11
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions
Department of Personnel & Training

North Block, New Delhi – 110001
Dated:09/09/2015

To
All the Chief Secretaries of State/UT Government,

Subject: Review of payment function of Group Insurance of All India Services through E-payment.
Sir,
I am directed to refer to this Department’s letter No. 11024/1/99-A1S-II dated 9/10th March, 2005 regarding simplification of procedure for payment of insurance/saving funds to the members of All India Service on their retirement/death. Now the simplified procedure calls for the State Governments to either make the payment of insurance/saving fund to the members of the All India Services and get the amount reimbursed from the Central Ministries controlling the respective All India Services for such payment or forward the claim of the retiring, officers to the Central Government for payment.
2. Accordingly, the Central Ministries Controlling the respective All India Services are making payment to the member of service on his retirement/death after due verification of the bill with data of remittances maintained by their PAOs. However, of late, it has been observed that the State Government are sending bills for an amount exceeding of 25,000/- to be paid to the member of service against claim(s) like Group Insurance. etc. inviting avoidable remarks or returning of the bills from the Controller General of Accounts, as the same being in violation of their extant guidelines in this regard.

3. The Controller of General of Accounts, Department of Expenditure vide their O.M. No. C11021/45/CGA/CVO/Mise/1133 dated 26/8/2015 (copy enclosed) has reviewed the payment functions. They have recently returned bills towards Group Insurance contribution of certain members of service emphasizing for strict compliance of its guidelines that no cheques are to be issued for an amount exceeding of 25,000/- towards any claim by the member of service. Therefore, such bills should be forwarded to the Central Ministries Controlling the respective All India Services alongwith requisite Bank details for making E-payment directly into the beneficiary account.
4. The State Governments are requested to furnish the following details of the beneficiary bank account on separate sheet along-with their claim:

(i) Name of the beneficiary
(ii) Bank and its Branch
(iii) Account No.
(iv) IFSC Code
(v) MICR Code

5. It is also to state that as and when the account is credited with the remittance of savings of Group Insurance, the same may immediately be acknowledged to the Drawing & Disbursing Officer (DDO) of the respective Central Ministries, controlling the cadre of All India Service.

Yours faithfully,

(Rajiv Jain)
Under Secretary to the Government f India

End: As above.
