Subject: Online generation and recording of Annual Performance Assessment Report (APAR) on SPARROW (Smart Performance Appraisal Report Recording Window) for all Organised Group ‘A’ services – Extension of timelines for completion of APAR for the year 2016-17.

As all the Cadre Controlling Authorities of Organised Group ‘A’ Services are aware that it has been decided to implement online generation and recording of Annual Performance Assessment Report (APAR) of officers under their cadre from the reporting year 2016-17, through SPARROW platform.

2. Some of the Cadre Controlling Authorities have intimated practical difficulties in switching over from manual to online mode of recording of APARs. In view of this, the cadre authorities have expressed apprehensions that target dates prescribed in DoPT O.M.No.21011/02/2009-Estt.(A) dated 23rd July, 2009 may not be met and have requested for extension of timelines.

3. The matter has been examined in this Department and it has been decided that the target dates prescribed in O.M. dated 23rd July, 2009 be relaxed as one time measure only for online generation, filling up self-appraisal, reporting, reviewing and acceptance of APAR for the year 2016-17 through SPARROW portal. The revised target dates for recording of APAR online for the year 2016-17 is enclosed as Annexure. This relaxation is subject to the condition that no remarks shall be recorded in the APAR for the year 2016-17 after 31.12.2017. Where the reporting, reviewing and the accepting 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 year, if he has submitted his self-assessment within stipulated time.

4. This has the approval of Secretary, DoPT.

Guidelines on treatment of effect of penalties on promotion — role of Departmental Promotion Committee

Guidelines on treatment of effect of penalties on promotion — role of Departmental Promotion Committee

No. 22011/4/2007-Estt. (D)

Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pension
Department of Personnel & Training

North Block, New Delhi,
Dated the 28th April, 2014

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Guidelines on treatment of effect of penalties on promotion — role of Departmental Promotion Committee
The Department of Personnel & Training had in its O.M. No.22011/5/86-Estt (D) dated 10.04.1989 issued consolidated instructions on Departmental Promotion Committee and matters related thereto. Para 6.2.3 of said O.M. provides that “before making the overall grading after considering the CRs for the relevant years, the DPC should take into account whether the officer has been awarded any major or minor penalty or whether any displeasure of any superior officer or authority has been conveyed to him as reflected in the ACRs.” These guidelines further provide that “the DPC should not be guided merely by the overall grading, if any, that may be recorded in the ACRs (now APARs) but should also make its own assessment on the basis of entries in the CRs (now APARs) because it has been noticed that sometimes the overall grading in a ACR (now APAR) may be inconsistent with the grades under various parameters or attributes”.

2. It further provides that an officer whose increments have been withheld or who has been reduced to a lower stage in the time scale, cannot be considered on that account to be ineligible for promotion to the higher grade as the specific penalty of withholding promotion has not been imposed on him/her. The suitability of the officer for promotion should be assessed by the DPC as and when occasions arise for such assessment. In assessing the suitability, the DPC will take into account the circumstances leading to the imposition of the penalty and decide whether in the light of the general service record of the officer and the fact of the imposition of the penalty he should be considered suitable for promotion. However, even where the DPC considers that despite the penalty, the officer is suitable for promotion, the officer should not be actually promoted during the currency of the penalty.

3. Further this Department’s O.M. No. No.22034/5/2004-Estt (D) dated 15.12.2004 provides that a Government servant, on whom a minor penalty of withholding of increment etc. has been imposed, should be considered for promotion by the Departmental Promotion Committee which meets after the imposition of the said penalty and after due consideration of full facts leading to imposition of the penalty, if he is still considered fit for promotion, the promotion may be given effect after the expiry of the currency of the penalty.

4. The procedure and guidelines to be followed for promotion of Government servants against whom disciplinary/court proceedings are pending or whose conduct is under investigation has been laid down in this Department’s O.M. No.22011/4/91-Estt(A) dated 14.9.92 and O.M. No.22034/4/2012-Estt (D) dated 02.11.2012 and 23.1.2014.

5. The role of Departmental Promotion Committee(DPC) in assessment of the officers being considered for promotion, including the officer(s) against whom a chargesheet has been issued or on whom a penalty has been imposed, has been examined by the Supreme Court in several judgments. The observations of Supreme Court in some of the important cases are summarized as under:

(a) In A.K. Narula case (AIR 2007 SC 2296), the Hon’ble Supreme Court has observed:
“the guidelines give a certain amount of play in the joints to the DPC by providing that it need not be guided by the overall grading recorded in the CRs, but may make its own assessment on the basis of the entries in the CRs. The DPC is required to make an overall assessment of the performance of each candidate separately, but by adopting the same standards, yardsticks and norms. It is only when the process of assessment is vitiated either on the ground of bias, malafide or arbitrariness, the selection calls for interference. Where the DPC has proceeded in a fair, impartial and reasonable manner, by applying the same yardstick and norms to all candidates and there is no arbitrariness in the process of assessment by the DPC, the court will not interfere”.
(b) In Union of India vs. K.V. Jankiraman case(AIR 1991 SC 2010), the Supreme Court has taken cognizance of role of DPC the case of an officer on whom a penalty has been imposed and has held that:
“An employee has no right to promotion. He has only right to be considered for promotion. The promotion to a post and more so, to a selection post, depends upon several circumstances. To qualify for promotion, the least that is expected of an employee is to have an unblemished record. That is the minimum expected to ensure a clean and efficient administration and to protect the public interest. An employee found guilty of misconduct cannot be placed on par with the other employees, and his case has to be treated differently……. In fact, while considering an employee for promotion his whole record has to be taken into consideration and if a promotion committee takes the penalties imposed upon the employee into consideration and denies him the promotion, such denial is not illegal and unjustified.”
(c) In UOI & Anr. Vs. S.K. Goel & Ors. (Appeal (Civil) 689/2007 -SLP(C)-2410/2007), the Hon’ble Supreme Court has held that:
“DPC enjoyed full discretion to devise its method and procedure for objective assessment of suitability and merit of the candidate being considered by it. Hence interference by High Court is not called for. ”
While delivering the above judgement, the Division Bench has observed that:
“…it is now more or less well settled that the evaluation made by an Expert Committee should not be easily interfered with by the Court which do not have the necessary expertise to undertake the exercise that is necessary for such purpose.”

 

6. It has been brought to the notice of this Department that DPCs have been adopting varying criteria in assessment of officials undergoing penalty that are not consistent with the extant instructions of the DOPT for e.g., downgradation of grading in ACR/APAR, denying promotion for specified number of years, etc.

7. The matter has been examined in consultation with the Department of Legal Affairs. It is a settled position that the DPC, within its power to make its own assessment, has to assess every proposal for promotion, on case to case basis. In assessing the suitability, the DPC is to take into account the circumstances leading to the imposition of the penalty and decide, whether in the light of general service record of the officer and the effect of imposition of penalty, he/she should be considered suitable for promotion and therefore, downgradation of APARs by one level in all such cases may not be legally sustainable. Following broad guidelines are laid down in respect of DPC:

 

a) DPCs enjoy full discretion to devise their own methods and procedures for objective assessment of the suitability of candidates who are to be considered by them, including those officers on whom penalty has been imposed as provided in DoPT O.M. dated 10.4.89 and O.M. dated 15.12.2004.

b) The DPC should not be guided merely by the overall grading, if any, that may be recorded in the ACRs/APARs but should make its own assessment on the basis of the entries in the ACRs/APARs as it has been noticed that sometimes the overall grading in a ACR/APAR may be inconsistent with the grading under various parameters or attributes. Before making the overall recommendation after considering the APARs (earlier ACRs) for the relevant years, the DPC should take into account whether the officer has been awarded any major or minor penalty.
(Refer para 6.2.1(e) and para 6.2.3 of DoPT OM dated 10.04.89)

c) In case, the disciplinary/criminal prosecution is in the preliminary stage and the officer is not yet covered under any of the three conditions mentioned in para 2 of DoPT O.M. dated 14.09.1992, the DPC will assess the suitability of the officer and if found fit, the officer will be promoted along with other officers. As provided in this Department’s O.M. dated 02.11.2012, the onus to ensure that only person with unblemished records are considered for promotion and disciplinary proceedings, if any, against any person coming in the zone of consideration are expedited, is that of the administrative Ministry/Department.

d) If the official under consideration is covered under any of the three condition mentioned in para 2 of O.M. dated 14.09.1992, the DPC will assess the suitability of Government servant along with other eligible candidates without taking into consideration the disciplinary case/criminal prosecution pending. The assessment of the DPC including ‘unfit for promotion’ and the grading awarded are kept in a sealed cover. (Para 2.1 of DoPT OM dated 14.9.92).

e) Para 7 of DoPT OM dated 14.09.92 provides that a Government servant, who is recommended for promotion by the DPC, but in whose case, any of the three circumstances on denial of vigilance clearance mentioned in para 2 of ibid O.M. arises after the recommendations of the DPC are received but before he/she is actually promoted, will be considered as if his/her case had been placed in a sealed cover by the DPC. He/she shall not be promoted until he/she is completely exonerated of the charges against him/her.

f) If any penalty is imposed on the Government servant as a result of the disciplinary proceedings or if he/she is found guilty in the criminal prosecution against him/her, the findings of the sealed cover/covers shall not be acted upon. His/her case for promotion may be considered by the next DPC in the normal course and having regard to the penalty imposed on him/her (para 3.1 of DoPT OM dated 14.9.92).

g) In assessing the suitability of the officer on whom a penalty has been imposed, the DPC will take into account the circumstances leading to the imposition of the penalty and decide whether in the light of general service record of the officer and the fact of imposition of penalty, the officer should be considered for promotion. The DPC, after due consideration, has authority to assess the officer as ‘unfit’ for promotion. However, where the DPC considers that despite the penalty the officer is suitable for promotion, the officer will be actually promoted only after the currency of the penalty is over (para 13 of DoPT OM dated 10.4.89).

h) Any proposal for promotion has to be assessed by the DPC, on case to case basis, and the practice of downgradation of APARs (earlier ACRs) by one level in all cases for one time, where a penalty has been imposed in a year included in the assessment matrix or till the date of DPC should be discontinued immediately, being legally non-sustainable.

i) While there is no illegality in denying promotion during the currency of the penalty, denying promotion in such cases after the period of penalty is over would be in violation of the provisions of Article 20 of the Constitution

j) The appointing authorities concerned should review comprehensively the cases of Government servants, whose suitability for promotion to a higher grade has been kept in a sealed cover on the expiry of 6 months from the date of convening the first Departmental Promotion Committee which had adjudged his suitability and kept its findings in the sealed cover. Such a review should be done subsequently also every six months. The review should, inter alia, cover the progress made in the disciplinary proceedings/criminal prosecution and the further measures to be taken to expedite the completion. (Para 4 of O.M. dated 14.09.1992)

k) In cases where the disciplinary case/criminal prosecution against the Government servant is not concluded even after the expiry of two years from the date of the meeting of the first DPC which kept its findings in respect of the Government servant in a sealed cover then subject to condition mentioned in Para 5 of this Department’s O.M. dated 14.09.1992, the appointing authority may consider desirability of giving him ad-hoc promotion (Para 5 of this Department’s O.M. dated 14.09.1992).

 

8. All the administrative authorities in the Ministries/Department are advised to place relevant records, including chargesheet, if any, issued to the officer concerned, penalty imposed, etc., before the DPC/ACC who will decide the suitability of officer for promotion keeping in view the general service records of the officer including the circumstances leading to the imposition of the chargesheet or penalty imposed. If such an officer is found suitable, promotion will be given effect after the currency of the penalty is over.

9. All Ministries/Departments are, therefore, requested to keep in view the above guidelines while convening DPC for promotion of the Government servants on whom either penalty has been imposed or where there are adverse remarks in the reckonable ACRs/APARs.

Entries in ACRs/APARs and proper disposal of representation against remarks in ACRs/ APARs or for upgradation/downgradation of the final grading

Entries in ACRs/APARs and proper disposal of representation against remarks in ACRs/ APARs or for upgradation/downgradation of the final grading

 No.21011/1/2005-Estt.(A)(Part.III)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions
(Department of Personnel & Training)

North Block, New Delhi,
31st January, 2014

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Entries in ACRs/APARs and proper disposal of representation in a quasi-judicial Manner by the competent authority against remarks in ACRs/ APARs or for upgradation/downgradation of the final grading.

This Department has issued OM dated 14th May, 2009 wherein the new system of communicating the entries in APAR is made applicable with effect from the reporting period 2008-09. This Department’s OM dated l e April, 2010 Ministries and Departments have been further asked to provide a copy of the reckonable below bench mark ACRs for the period prior to the reporting period 2008-09 to the concerned employee for his representation, before such ACRs are placed before future DPCs. This OM also lays  down that the representations against the remarks or for up gradation of final grading in the APAR be considered by the competent authority objectively in a quasi-judicial manner on the basis of material placed before it. It provides that the competent authority shall take into account the contentions of the officer who has represented against the particular remarks/ grading in the APAR and also take the views from the reporting and reviewing officer and in case of up gradation of the final grading given in the APAR, gives specific reasons in the order.

2. The UPSC has brought to the notice of this Department that in the DPCs being held in the aegis of the Commission, orders of the competent authority do not contain specific reasons for such up gradation in a number of cases. In this regard this Department has already issued OM No. 2011/1/2005-Estt. A(Pt. II) dated 19th May, 2011 which, inter alia, states that such orders cannot be termed as disposed off in a quasi-judicial manner as laid down in the aforesaid OM dated 13.04.2010. Grading an officer below the bench mark by the DPC in such cases on the ground of up gradation being without giving sufficient reasons is prone to avoidable representations.

3. It is reiterated that proper disposal of representation in a quasi-judicial manner as outlined in this Department’s OM dated 13.04.2010 is mandatory before the under consideration ACR/APAR may be placed/considered before/by the DPC.

4. All the Cadre Controlling Authorities, Ministries/Departments are advised to ensure compliance of this before sending proposals for consideration of DPCs.

Relaxation of requirement of 4 APARs for Section Officer LDCE 2012 & 2013

Relaxation of requirement of 4 APARs for Section Officer LDCE 2012 & 2013

No.6/1/2013-CS-1(P)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions
(Department of Personnel & Training)

Lok Nayak Bhawan,
New Delhi October 23, 2013.

ORDER

Whereas the Central Secretariat Service Section Officers’ Grade (Limited Departmental Competitive Examination) Regulations, 2010 provide that for being eligible to appear in the Section Officers’ Grade (Limited Departmental Competitive Examination) (hereinafter referred to as ‘examination’) an officer of the Assistants’ Grade of the Central Secretariat Service (CSS) or of Personal Assistants’ Grade (Stenographer Grade ‘C’) of the Central Secretariat Stenographers’ Service (CSSS) possessing a Bachelor’s Degree of a recognised university or equivalent shall, inter-alia, satisfy the following condition on the crucial date:

“He shall have rendered not less than five years’ approved service and shall also have, earned at least four Annual Performance Appraisal Reports in .the Assistants’ Grade of the Central Secretariat Service or Personal Assistants’ Grade of Central Secretariat Stenographers’ Service.”

2. And whereas in response to the notice for the Combined Section Officers/Stenographers’(Grade-B/Grade-l) Limited Departmental Competitive Examination 2012 & 2013, representations from individuals were received stating that the condition of four Annual Performance Appraisal Reports (APAR) as on the crucial date for eligibility for the SO Grade 1DCE, was adversely affecting them as they would not be eligible for the forthcoming examination due to not having obtained the requisite number of APARs whereas many of their juniors appointed by the same mode of recruitment would be eligible.

3. And whereas the Government on consideration of the matter observed that introduction of the new condition of four APARs is creating incongruity in so far as many junior Assistants/PAs are eligible for taking the examination for the years 2012 and 2013 but the seniors are not, as they have not obtained four APARs in that grade as on the crucial date due to either late joining in the case of direct recruits on account of administrative delays or due to late finalisation of Select Lists in the case of promotes. As a result, an anomalous situation has arisen whereby officers senior in the Select List or in rank in the direct recruitment examination would not be eligible to sit for the forthcoming examination due to not obtaining the requisite APARs while their juniors would be eligible to take the examination.

4. And whereas the Government has on consideration decided that the condition of four APARs for the examination is causing undue hardship to those Assistants/PAs who have completed at least five years of approved service but are not eligible to appear in the examination for the years 2012 & 2013 as hey have not obtained four APARs due to administrative reasons, while their juniors are eligible for the examination.

5. And now, therefore, to bring about uniformity in the eligibility condition for all the candidates for the examination for the years 2012 & 2013 for category –I and to avoid undue hardship to many Assistants/PAs as an exception, and in  exercise of the powers conferred by Rule 23 of the Central Secretariat Service Rules, 2009, the competent authority has decided to relax the condition relating to the requirement of four APARs, on the crucial date, in the Assistants ‘Grade of CSS  or Personal Assistant Grade of CSSS contained in Regulation 4 of the Section Officers ‘Grade (Limited Department competitive Examination) Regulations, 2010. Consequently Assistants of CSS and Personal Assistants of CSSS who have rendered five years ‘Approved service in the respective grades as on the crucial date would be eligible to appear in the combined Section Officers’/Stenographers’(Grade-B/Grade-I) Limited Departmental Competitive Examination 2012 & 2013 for Category-I (Section Officer of CSS).
