Posting of Husband and Wife at the Same Station – Dopt

Posting of Husband and Wife at the Same Station – Dopt

Concerning the posting at the same place of husband and wife who are working in Government service, the transfer issues have been raised in Parliament on several occasions. In 1980’s these demands began to show its seriousness, because the percentage of women employees were increased in joining the Government services. The Central Government also observed this issue from various forums, a circular had been issued by the Department of Social Welfare in Feb 1976 to all Head of Departments to give serious consideration to the requests of posting of husband and wife at the same station. In order to that order, lot of women employees started to send their request to transfer at the place where their husbands are posted.

The Central Government gave its utmost importance to this issue and as far as possible and within the constraints of administrative feasibility, the husband and wife should be posted at the same station to enable them to lead a normal family life and to ensure the education and welfare of their children. The Department of Personnel and Training issued an OM on 3.4.86, in accordance with the guidelines and instructions in the order given by the Government, all cadre controlling authorities should consider such requests with the utmost sympathy.

The Department of Personnel and Training issued various office memorandums regarding this matter from time to time. The motive of the Government on the petitioners, said in the orders repeatedly, to give utmost importance attached to the enhancement of women’s status in all walks of life and to enable them to lead a normal family life as also to ensure the education and welfare of the children.

Till recently, the persmin has issued total of six orders pertaining the above subject on its website. After implementation of the 6th CPC, the last order has been issued on 30.09.2009. The order said that “On the basis of the 6th CPC reprot, Government servants have already been allowed the facility of Child Care Leave which is admissible till the children attain 18 years of age”. The consolidated guidelines concerened this subject has been provided in the OM dated 12.06.1997. The consolidated guidelines has been amended and published in the last order after implementation of 6th CPC.

In the main guidelines, “The husband & wife, if working in the same Department and if the required level of post is available, should invariably be posted together in order to enable them to lead a normal family life and look after the welfare of their children especially till the children attain 18 years of age. This will not apply on appointment under the central Staffing Scheme. Where only wife is a Govt. servant, the above concessions would be applicable to the Govt. servant. Complaints are sometimes received that even if posts are available in the station of posting of the spouse, the administrative authorities do not accommodate the employees citing administrative reasons. In all such cases, the cadre controlling authority should strive to post the employee at the station of the spouse and in case of inability to do so, specific reasons, therefor, may be communicated to the employee”.

DOPT vide OM AB-14017/14/2018-Estt.(RR) dated 31.12.2010 issued instructions laying down guidelines for framing/ amendment/relaxation of Recruitment Rules. Para 3.1.5 Of the guidelines provide that the recruitment/ rules should be reviewed once in 5 years with a view effecting such change as are necessary to bring them in conformity with the changed position, including additions to or reductions in the strength of the lower and higher-level posts. Subsequently, this Division vide OM No. AB-14017/61/2008-Estt.(RR) dated 25.03.2014 re-iterated these instructions.

2. However, it has come to the notice of this Department that many Ministries/Departments are not undertaking the aforesaid exercise as stipulated. Resultantly, recruitment/promotion of officers/ employees are continued to be made on the basis of RRs which are not updated and continued to reflect old positions. It is a matter of concern that the decisions taken by the Government on the basis of pay Commission Recommendations, Court directions, Expert Committee Recommendations etc remain un-reflected in the relevant RRs/SRs

3. Since RRs are statutory in nature and all promotions/appointments are made as the provisions in the RRs/SRs, it is imperative that the RRs/SRs are updated in accordance with DoP&T instructions issued from time to lime. In view of this, Ministries/Departments are impressed upon to immediately undertake the exercise for review Of existing RRs/SRs which have not been amended in the last five years and intimate this Department about the outcome of the exercise so undertaken.

(v) The proper mix of the six methods of recruitment i.e. (a) promotion (b) direct recruitment (c) deputation (d) absorption (e) re-employment (f) short-term contract (mentioned at (a) to (f) above).

27. What is promotion?

Ans. Promotion is method of recruitment from feeder grade post(s) to higher post in the hierarchy as per the provisions of the Recruitment Rules. If promotion is kept as a method of recruitment, it is also necessary to lay down the number of years of qualifying service before the persons in the field become eligible for promotion. Only regular, and not ad hoc, period of service is taken into account for purposes of computing this service.

28. What is Direct Recruitment?

Ans. Direct recruitment is the recruitment which is open to all candidates, eligible as per the provisions regarding age, educational qualification/ experience etc. as prescribed in Recruitment Rules.

29. What is Deputation?

Ans. Deputation is a method of recruitment where officers of Central Government Departments or State/ UT Governments from outside are appointed to post(s) in Central Government for a limited period, by the end of which they will have to return to their parent cadres. In case of isolated post, it is desirable to keep the method of recruitment of deputation/ short term contract as otherwise the incumbents of such posts, if directly recruited, will not have any avenue of promotion/ career progression.

30. What is short term contract?

Ans. Short term contract is also a form of deputation where officers from non- Government bodies e.g. universities, research institutions, public sector undertakings for teaching, research, scientific and technical posts)( Central Government posts.

31. Whether absorption and Deputation are synonymous? What is absorption?

Ans. Absorption and deputation are not synonymous. There is a substantial difference between absorption and deputation. Under the provision absorption, the officer, who initially comes on deputation, may be permanently absorbed in the post/ grade if recruitment rules prescribe for absorption as mode of recruitment. Such absorption can be effected only in the case of officers who are on deputation from the Central / State Government.

32. What is composite method of recruitment?

Ans. In cases where the field of promotion or feeder grade consists of only one post, the method of recruitment by “deputation (including short-term contract)/ promotion” is prescribed so that the eligible departmental officer is considered along with outsiders. If the departmental candidate is selected for appointment to the post; it is to be treated as having been filled by promotion; otherwise, the post is to be filled by deputation / short-term contract for the prescribed period of deputation / short-term contract at the end of which the departmental officer will again be afforded an opportunity to be considered for appointment to the post.

33. How is field of deputation decided?

Ans. The field for “deputation/ short-term contract/ absorption should, as far as possible, consist of officers holding analogous posts on regular basis but may be widened to include officers working in the next lower grade also with the qualifying service on regular basis normally prescribed for promotion.

34. How is the period of qualifying service for promotion decided?

Ans. The qualifying service for promotion from one grade to another is necessary so that there is no premature promotion or undue jump in pay and also to ensure that the officer has sufficient opportunity to demonstrate his competence/potential for holding the higher post. The period of qualifying service varies from post to post depending upon the scale of pay and the experience, required for manning the higher post. Broadly, the following qualifying service to be followed is prescribed in this Department OM No. 14017/48/2010-Estt (RR) dated 31.12.2010 (para 3.12.2).

35. What is the maximum age limit for Deputation?

Ans. The maximum age limit for appointment on deputation (including short term contract) or absorption shall be not exceeding 56 years as on the closing date of receipt of applications.

36. What is the crucial date for determination of eligibility of absorption/ deputation?

Ans. The guidelines for crucial date for determination of eligibility for absorption/ deputation are as follows: –

(i) In the case of a vacancy already existing at the time of issue of the communication inviting nominations, the eligibility may be determined with reference to the last date prescribed for receipt of nominations in the Ministry/ Department/ Organization responsible for making appointment to the post i.e. originating Ministry etc.

(ii) In the case where a vacancy is anticipated, the crucial date for determining eligibility should be the date on which the vacancy is expected to arise.

37. How is Departmental Committee formed?

Ans. When promotion is kept as a method of recruitment, the detailed composition of the Departmental Promotion Committee, with minimum 3 officers, may be indicated. In the case of promotion to Group ‘A’ posts, the Union Public Service Commission shall also be associated. The total strength of DPC including Chairman need not necessarily be an odd number, as the decision is to be taken as a joint one.

38. What are the circumstances in which Union Public Service Commission is to be consulted for recruitment?

Ans. UPSC is required to consult in case of recruitment to all Central Civil Services and Central Civil Posts. Exemption from Consultation with Union Public Service Commission is governed by the Union Public Service Commission (Exemption from Consultation) Regulations, 1958 as amended from time to time and the Central Civil Services and Civil Posts (Consultation with Union Public Commission) Rules, 1999 as amended. Some of the circumstances in which the Union Public Service Commission are to be consulted in making recruitment to the posts are illustrated below:-

(i) Direct Recruitment,

(ii) Re-employment,

(iii) Absorption,

(iv) Composite method of recruitment ( i.e. where the departmental candidate is to be considered along with outsiders),

(v) In case of deputation – (a) if the field for consideration includes State Government Officers or Group ‘A’ & ‘B’ officers of the Central Government simultaneously and (b) if the field for consideration consists of not only Central/State Government officers but also officers from non- Government institutions

(vi) Any relaxation or amendment of the provisions of the Recruitment Rules.

39. Whether recruitment to a post can be made in absence of recruitment rules of a post?

Ans. If there are overriding compulsions for filling any Group A or Group B post in the absence of Recruitment Rules, then the Ministries/ Department may make reference to Union Public Service Commission for determination of method of recruitment as a onetime measure for filling up of a post on regular basis.

40. What are the limits for notification of Recruitment Rules?

Ans. The Recruitment Rules or amendment(s) thereto as finally approved by the Union Public Service Commission are required to be notified within a period of 10 weeks from the date of receipt of their advice letter. This time limit should be strictly adhered to.

41. What needs to be done in case where posts are transferred t Ministries/Departments?

Ans. The Ministry/Departments concerned should mutually agree for transfer of the posts and the same should be concurred by Department of Expenditure. Thereafter, the existing RR needs to be de-notified in consultation of Department of Personnel & Training, Union Public Service Commission and Ministry of Law. Suitable recruitment rules in the transferred Department may be framed/ amended following due procedure.

Office Memorandum

 

Sub:- Maximum age limit in case of appointment by deputation / deputation (including short term contract)

 

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s OM No. AB-14017/48/92-Estt (RR) dated 17th November, 1992 on the subject mentioned above. The Recruitment Rules in respect of a number of posts provide for appointment by the method of deputation / deputation (including short term contract). As per existing instructions, the maximum age limit for appointment on deputation / deputation (including short term contract) is ‘not exceeding fifty six years on the closing date of receipt of application. In recent past, this Department has received several requests for revision of the maximum age limit for appointment on deputation/deputation (including short term contract) basis

 

2. The matter has, therefore, been examined in consultation with the Union Public Service Commission. Keeping in view the fact that gaining experience in analogous posts at SAG and above levels take time, the limited number of officers available at these levels and to tap the talent/service of officers who have rich domain experience, it has been decided that the following age limit shall be prescribed for appointment on deputation / deputation (including short term contract) basis:-

(i) For posts in the SAG level and above (i.e. Level-14 of the Pay Matrix and above):-

‘Not exceeding fifty eight years’ on the closing date of receipt of application.

(ii) For posts below the SAG level (below Level-14 of the Pay Matrix):-

‘Not exceeding fifty six years’ on the closing date of receipt of application.

3. The Administrative Ministries are requested to take necessary action for amendment of Recruitment Rules/Service Rules to incorporate the revised age limit for deputation/deputation (including short term contract) for posts of the level of SAG and above.
