Dated the 08th January, 2019

Subject: All India strike for 08th and 9th January, 2019 – Instructions under CCS (Conduct Rules), 1964 – Regarding.

It has been brought to the notice of the Confederation of Central Government Employees and workers has decided to observe two day strike on 8th and 9th January, 2019 to protest against NPS and certain 7th CPC issues.

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.330 12/ I/(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 strike, and ensure that the willing employees are allowed hindrance free entry into the office premises.

4. In case employees go on strike, all Divisional Heads are requested to forward a report indicating the number and details of employees, who are absent from duty on the day of strike i.e., 08.01.2019 and 09.01.2019.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Sub: Guidelines on treatment of effect of penalties on promotion – role of Departmental Promotion Committee

The Department of Personnel & Training vide its OM of even number dated 28.4.2014 issued instructions on the above subject. Paragraph 7(d), 7(f) and 7(g) of the said OM provides as follows:

7(d)

If the official under consideration is covered under any of the three condition mentioned in paragraph 2 of OM dated 14.9.1992, 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. [Paragraph 2.1 of DoPT OM dated 14.9.1992]

7(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 [paragraph 3.1 of DoPT OM dated 14.9.1992].

7(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 [paragraph 13 of DoPT OM dated 10.4.1989].
2. Questions have been raised by the Ministries and Departments asking whether this is applicable in the case of ‘Censure‘ also. In this regard, it is reiterated that paragraphs 7(d), 7(f) and 7(g) cited above are applicable in all the recognized penalties under CCS (CCA) Rules including the minor penalty of Censure as well for which no currency has been prescribed, it would mean that as per para 7(g), if the DPC considers the officer fit for promotion notwithstanding the award of censure, he / she can be promoted without referring to the currency of penalty.
