Sir/Madam,

Keeping the following objectives in view, the Government of India, Department of Personnel & Training has been encouraging the formation of Residents’ Welfare Associations in Government residential colonies as well as private colonies in which 2

(a) To foster a spirit of mutual help and goodwill among the inhabitants of the colonyin general, and the members of the Association in particular, thereby, promoting communal harmony and national integration.

consumable items and environmental protection such as steps to curb pollution, ensure cleanliness, plantation of tress, interaction with authorities on any environmental aspects and for this purpose, represent the interest of the residents

transparency in the functioning of RWAs.

4. In view of the above, a need has been felt to re-visit the Model Constitution and Rules and Regulations for the RWAs. Accordingly, all RWAs and AWOs are requested to suggest modification/amendment in the existing Model Constitution and Rules and Regulations for the RWAs in the following format for comparative analysis and consideration of the suggestion.

Sl.No. Provision in existing Model constitution and Rules and Regulation for the RWAs Modification/amend ment suggested Justification for suggesting the modification/amen dment

3. However, it is noticed that the Ministries/Departments are making several references to this Department seeking interpretation of the guidelines without exercising due diligence. The Ministries/Departments are advised not to make any references to this Department unless there are difficulties relating to interpretation/application of these guidelines or any relaxation in
Rules/instructions is warranted to mitigate a genuine hardship faced the Government servant.

DoPT to Department: Complete Recruitment Process Within 6 Months

DoPT to Department: Complete Recruitment Process Within 6 Months

NEW DELHI: All government departments need to complete direct recruitment process within six months of the closing date of receipt of applications mentioned in the advertisements, according to draft guidelines formed by the Centre.

The draft prepared by the Department of Personnel and Training (DOPT) says there was “unduly large” delay in recruitment process undertaken by many central government departments.

“All ministries or departments are, therefore, requested that while initiating the recruitment process to fill vacant posts by the method of direct recruitment in their ministries or departments, they may ensure that the recruitment process i.e., conducting written examination or holding of interviews is completed within six months from the closing date of receipt of applications mentioned in the advertisement,” the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has said in draft instructions.

It has come to notice of DoPT that ministries which undertake direct recruitment for various posts in the Government of India by conducting competitive examinations or interviews, are not adhering to the time frame for that purpose.

“It is seen that in many cases the time gap between the date of advertisement for the vacancy and date of examination or interview is unduly large and defeats the object of early recruitment process.

“Further, delay of recruitment process by more than a year will deny the opportunity to fresh candidates who become eligible during that year,” it said in a note to all central government ministries seeking comments. The DoPT has asked all ministries to send their views on the draft by November 16.

DoPT created ‘work-friendly’ conditions for officers: Jitendra Singh

DoPT created ‘work-friendly’ conditions for officers: Jitendra Singh

New Delhi, Mar. 17 (ANI): Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) and the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) Jitendra Singh on Tuesday said that the DoPT has always tried to create conditions which are more work friendly for the officers.

His reaction came after IAS officer D K Ravi, who took on the sand mafia in Karnataka’s Kolar District, was found dead at his residence in Bengaluru today.

“I don’t carry the brief about the case as such. Maybe the state government will be having all the details, but as far as we the DoPT (Department of Personnel and Training) is concerned, I have no hesitations in saying that in last few months we have travelled an extra mile to try to create conditions which are more work friendly for our officers; we have tried to make it more comfortable, particularly when the demand the demand of work on them has increased,” Singh said.

Singh said the department has always tried to assure that they (officers) are able to put up a performance to the best of their potential without suffering from any kind of intimidation or harassment.

“Each day we are devising new methods, whether it is by the way of their payment scales or even by the way of their recreation or allowing them periodic LTC leave. I think, the present government has always held this belief that to ensure what we describe as ‘Maximum Governance Minimum Government’,” he added.

Preliminary investigations suggest that D.K. Ravi allegedly committed suicide at his official residence in Bengaluru’s Koramangala area.

An officer of 2009 batch, the 36-year-old officer was an Additional Commissioner on deputation with the Commercial Tax department.

“Prima facie it appears to be a case of suicide. His body was found hanging from a ceiling fan,” Police Commissioner M N Reddi told reporters.

He added that it was Ravi’s wife who found him hanging tied to a piece of cloth in their apartment.

Police said the officer’s body was discovered around lunch time in the flat.

Police said they are likely to analyze Ravi’s mobile records, entry records of his apartment’s reception, and CCTV cameras fitted in the vicinity.

State Home Minister K J George, Energy Minister D K Shiv Kumar, Congress lawmaker from Kolar District K R Ramesh Kumar and a dozen senior tax officials paid condolence visits on the Ravi family on hearing about his death.

Home Minister George said that all angles will be looked into to determine what caused Ravi’s death. He also described the death as a great loss to the state of Karnataka.

Meanwhile, the locals of Kolar district of Karnataka called for a shutdown in sympathy with the officer who was held in high respect for his performance in this district.

DOPT- It is as powerful as a magical spell for Central government employees..!

DOPT- It is as powerful as a magical spell for Central government employees..!

Department of Personnel & Training 
(http://www.persmin.gov.in)

The Department of Personnel & Training is the coordinating agency of the Central Government in personnel matters, specially in respect of issues concerning recruitment, training, career development and staff welfare.

DOPT- It is as powerful as a magical spell for Central government employees. 
This is the powerful department that decides on all the service-related issues of the Central Government employees. One of the important duties of the department is to resolve all the problems and issues faced by Central Government offices all over the country.
The Department of Personnel & Training, under the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions is the coordinating agency of the Central Government in personnel matters, specially in respect of issues concerning recruitment, training, career development and employees welfare.
Four-five years ago, the Dopt’s website was not regular in updating and releasing all the relevant Government Orders. But, things have changed now and, along with timely updates, the website has also become a very reliable forum to clear doubts.
We have made it a habit to publish the orders to the knowledge of all Central Government employees as soon as DOPT releases them.
DOPT is the coordinating agency that has the power to decide the fate of Central Government employees.

A reminder was also issued on th January, 2014 to all the cadre units to expedite DPCs. However, till date information has been received from few cadre units only.

2. Some Doubts have been raised by cadre units on some of the issues pertaining to Select List of Section Officers’ Grade of CSS for the years 2009/2010/2011 against Seniority Quota. Also, some discrepancies have been found in the information furnished by some of the cadre units. The clarification on these issues is as under:

Issue 1 : Whether DPC is to be conducted in respect of officers not clear front Vigilance angle.

Clarification: As per DOPTs 0M No 22011/5/86-Estt(D) dated 10th April, 1989 (Consolidated Guidelines on DPC), DPC in all such cases should be held and sealed cover procedure should be adopted as laid down in the O.M.

Issue 2 : Whether DPC is to be conducted in respect of officers who are in the zone of promotion but have retired/taken VRS/expired/resigned from service as on date before conduct of DPC

Clarification : As per DOPTs 0M No 22011/4/98-Estt(D) dated 12th October, 1998, DPC in respect of such officers should be held but as they have retired/left the service before the conduct of DPC, their order/notification for promotion need not be issued. Many Ministries/Departments have issued notification/orders in respect of such officers, which is not as per the 0M mentioned above.  Such Ministries/Departments are requested to issue necessary corrigendum in this regard. Only the fitness of these employees is to be informed to CS.I Division for finalization of Select List.

Issue 3 : What should be the date of effect of promotion in respect of persons included in the zone of promotion for inclusion in the Select List of Section Officers’ Grade of CSS for the years 2009/2010/2011 against Seniority Quota

Clarification: Promotion orders/notification should be issued from prospective effect only not prior to the date of DPC. Many Ministries/Departments have issued promotion order w.e.f. 1.7.2009, 1.7.2010 and 1.7.2010 for the respective Select Lists, which is not as per DPC guidelines. Such Ministries/Departments are requested to issue necessary corrigendum in this regard.

Who will conduct the DPC in such cases- borrowing department or Parent department?

Clarification: DPC in such cases is to be conducted by the parent department.

Issue 5: What is the action on the part of Ministries/Departments if they found an officer in the zone who has already left the service prior to the crucial date i.e. 1.7.2009. 1.7.2010 and 1.7.2010 for the respective Select Lists?

Clarification: The concerned Ministry/Department will forward the name of such officers to CS.I Division, DOPT so that necessary corrections may be carried Out in the Select List. One such instance has come to the notice of this department that notification has been issued in respect of person for the Select List Year 2011 who had taken VRS w. e. f. 1.4.2011 i.e. prior to the crucial date of promotion. The mistake may be rectified by issuing of a corrigendum.

Issue 6: Many Ministries/Departments have not conducted DPCs in respect of many persons on the pretext that ACRs for these officers are incomplete

Clarification: Ministry/Departments may refer to para 6.2.1 of DOPTs 0M No 22011/5/86-Estt(D) dated 10th April, 1989 (Consolidated Guidelines on DPC).

Smt. Sudha Krishnan,
Joint Secretary (Pers),
Govt of India, Min of Finance,
Department of Expenditure,
Room No. 39-A, North Block,
New Delhi – 110001

Subject: Reimbursement of Medical Expenses where Payment of Fixed Medical Allowance is allowed to staff working in the interior where AMA not available.

Respected Madam,
With due regards, it is submitted that this Federation has raised the subject matter before the Secretary, MOH&FW and Min of Defence on 05.07.2011 and reminded from time to time that Fourth Central Pay Commission (04th CPC) recommended in Para 16.9 as under;

“We recognize that employees covered by Medical Reimbursement Scheme (MRS) under the Central Services (Medical Attendance) Rules, 1944 are experiencing difficulties as regards the treatment and reimbursement of expenses incurred by them. There is also considerable administrative and accounting work involved in the settlement of claims. Various kinds of malpractices in the scheme have also brought to our notice. We, therefore, recommend grant of a Fixed Medical Allowance of Rs. 25/- per month for outdoor treatment to all employees covered by MRS. The expenses incurred on special diseases (cancer, diabetes, mental diseases, poliomyelitis, tubercular diseases and leprosy) and hospitalization may continue to be reimbursed to all employees as at present under the scheme”.

Thereupon Govt issued instructions vide G.O.I., M.H., O.M. No. S-14020/1/88-MS, dated 17th  July, 1990, 28th  Sep, 1991, that quantum of medical allowance of Rs. 25/- per month per employee working in interior may be granted where no Authorized Medical Attendant is available within a radius of 05 km, and if available, he is not willing to be appointed as AMA.

It is worth to mention here that the reimbursement of medical expenses for indoor treatment were allowed by the concerned authorities though the employee was drawing Rs. 25/- per month FMA.

Subsequently, Fifth Central Pay Commission (5thCPC) also recommended in Para 114.24 on the subject matter as under;

“We are in favour of a greater freedom of choice in obtaining medical aid and advice, where Central Government is unable to organize its own facilities for employees. Such a freedom, while aiming at development of employees within their own responsibilities, will reduce much of clerical work involved in medical reimbursement claims for day-to-day need. For serious ailments and hospitalizations, however, we still do not see any justification for removal of restrictions. Accordingly, we recommend that in areas presently covered by Medical reimbursement Scheme for outpatient purposes a medical allowance of Rs. 100/- per month per employee may be granted only for outpatient facilities, not provided by either CGHS or any departmental medical facilities.”

 

Thereupon Govt issued instructions to enhance the quantum of FMA to Rs. 100/- from Rs. 25/- per month per employee vide G.O.I., M.H., O.M. No. S-14020/1/88-MS, dated 18th  Jan, 1999, for employee working in interior where no Authorized Medical Attendant is available within a radius of 05 km, and if available, he is not willing to be appointed as AMA.

But this O.M. does not prohibit for reimbursing the medical expenses in case the Government Employee or his dependant is being treated as ‘indoor patient’ because the employee is being granted the Fixed Medical Allowance for the reimbursement of consultation fees paid to any doctor available in the interior areas. Even the employee has to bear the cost of medicines prescribed by such doctors and in such circumstances he is authorized for reimbursement of cost of medicines, any pathological test etc. as ‘Out Door Patient’.

Simultaneously, on the recommendation of 5th CPC, Govt introduced Fixed Medical Allowance of Rs. 100/- per month from 01.12.1997 to Central Government Pensioners/family Pensioners not covered under CGHS vide DOP&PW, O.M. No. 45/57/97-P&PW, dated 19.12.1997. According to this scheme, a pensioner/family pensioner may opt either CGHS facility or Fixed Medical Allowance of Rs. 100/ which has been enhanced to Rs. 300/- vide your O.M. No. 390/2010-MS, Dated 14th  July, 2010. Since the issuance of the O.M. dated 19.12.1997 the medical reimbursement of the Govt employee and their family members has been discontinued.

It is to be kept in the mind that the DOP&PW, O.M. No. 45/57/97-P&PW, dated 19.12.1997 is concerned with the payment of Fixed Medical Allowance to the pensioners/family pensioners, where CGHS facility is not available, on the recommendation of 5th CPC, whereas this federation is raising the issue of Fixed Medical Allowance being granted to serving employees residing in the interior area and who are under the purview of CS (MA) Rules, 1944 and have been granted Rs. 25/ per month vide G.O.I., M.H., O.M. No. S-14020/1/88-MS, dated 17th July, 1990, 28th Sep, 1991 and the quantum enhanced to Rs. 100/- per month vide G.O.I., M.H., O.M. No. S-14020/1/88-MS, dated 18th Jan, 1999.

The employee residing in the interior area has no option to avail outpatient medical facility from any source of Central Government/State Government/Local Municipality/Private Medical practitioner appointed as Authorized Medical within a radius 05 km, hence he has been compelled/granted by Central Government to accept Rs. 25/- or 100/- as FMA and whenever such medical facility will be provided to him, this FMA will be discontinued forthwith.

Therefore you are requested to issue necessary directives to the authorities to reimburse the medical claims for indoor treatment where the serving employees are getting FMA Rs. 100/- per month. Further, you are requested to make an arrangement for meeting with the reps of this federation and concerned authorities of MOH&FW according to your own convenient.

Thanking you.

Sincerely yours

2. This Federation’s letter of even no. dated 27.06.2013

Respected Madam,
Kindly accept our thanks for initiating the action on the subject matter and communicating the same to this recognized Federation vide letter cited under reference (1).

But, it is worth to mention here that the ‘Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare’ has nothing to do with the matter because the issue is not related to the pensioners.

It is a matter of reimbursement of medical expenses where payment of Fixed Medical Allowance is allowed @ Rs.100/ per month to the staff working in the interior where AMA is not available.

Therefore, you are requested to issue necessary directives to the authorities of ‘Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Govt of India’ to redress the genuine grievances of serving employees (not pensioners), which is pending since long.

Thanking you.
Sincerely yours

FOREWORD

In pursuance of the recommendations of the Committee of Experts which was set up to review the procedure of Disciplinary/Vigilance Inquiries, the Department of Personnel and Training (DOPT) had directed the Institute of Secretariat Training and Management to bring out an updated Handbook for Inquiry Officers and Disciplinary Authorities.

Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions

DOPT Launched Internship Scheme, 2013 from September 01

The Department of Personnel and Training, Government of India has initiated an Internship Scheme from 1st September 2013 to engage Indian Nationals, who are Graduate /Post Graduate or Research Students enrolled in reputed University/Institution within India or abroad and preferably specializing in HR and associated subjects in Public Policy and Public Administration, as “Interns”. These interns would be expected to supplement the process of policy analysis within the Department through desirable empirical collection and collation of in-house and other information.

The exposure for the interns to the functioning of the Indian Government may be an add-on in furthering their own career goals in the Non Profit Organisation (NPO) Sector or International Organizations. The internship shall be for a minimum period of 2 months but shall not exceed 6 months in individual cases.

The DoPT has identified ten topics for the current year for the Interns. The topics are: Analysis of cases disposed of by Central Administrative Tribunal; Collection of Data on Reservation from Ministries and its analysis; Issues relating to Anti-Corruption Law; Issues relating to punishment of Government employees for unethical behavior; Exit policies for inefficient public servants; Best HR practices; Service Conditions; Expectations of Persons with Disabilities employees; Impact evaluation of Mid-Career Training Program of Central Secretariat Service (CSS)Central Secretariat Stenographers Service (CSSS) and Revising methodology of training program.

DoPT has invited applications from the interested candidates in prescribed Proforma through its Circular dated 30th August, 2013. The DoPT Circular and the application Proforma is available on the DoPT website www.persmin.nic.in.

Reservation in promotion to the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes

Reservation in promotion to the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes

Reservation in Promotion

The Supreme Court in the matter of M. Nagaraj case, while upholding validity of the Constitution amendments regarding reservation in promotion to the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, has laid down certain pre-requisite conditions for providing reservation in promotion to SCs and STs, namely the State has to see about inadequacy of representation, backwardness of the class and efficiency of administration. To overcome these pre-requisite conditions, the Government proposed to introduce a bill to amend the Constitution. Opinion of the Attorney General of India was sought on the proposed bill and he had not opined that the Bill on the Constitutional amendment for reservation of Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes in promotion in the Government jobs was erroneous.

The Bill aims to amend Article 16(4A) so as to continue with existing provisions of reservation in promotion to the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, without any impediment.

This was stated by Shri V. Narayanasamy, Minister of State in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension and Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office in written reply to a question by Shri Yashvir Singh and Shri Neeraj Shekhar in the Lok Sabha today.
