DoPT: All India Protest Day for 19th September, 2018 – Instructions under CCS (Conduct Rules) 1964

All India Protest Day for 19th September, 2018 – Instructions under CCS (Conduct Rules) 1964

DoPT

MOST IMMEDIATE
OUT TODAY

No.45018/1/2017-Vig.

Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, P.G. & Pensions
Department of Personnel & Training

North Block, New Delhi,
Dated the 18th September, 2018

Subject: All India Protest Day for 19th September, 2018 – Instructions under CCS (Conduct Rules), 1964 – Regarding.

It has been brought to the notice of the Government that National Joint Council of Action (NJCA), New Delhi has decided to observe “All India Protest Day” on 19th September, 2018 in support of the following issues:

i. Upward Revision of Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula,
ii. Scrapping of the New Contributory Pension Scheme; and
iii. Allow Option No. 1 as one of the Pension Fitment Formula.

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 or any action that abet any form of strike in violation of Rule 7 of the CCS (Conduct) Rules, 1964. Besides, in accordance with the proviso to Rule 17(I) 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. There is no statutory provision empowering the employees to go on strike. The Supreme Court has also ruled 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 the law. Any employee going on strike in any form would face the consequences which, besides deduction of wages, may also include appropriate disciplinary action. Attention of all employees of this Department is also drawn to this Department’s O.M. No.33012/1/(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 protest, and ensure that the willing employees are allowed hindrance free entry into the office premises.

4. In case employees go on protest, all Divisional Heads are requested to forward report indicating the number and details of employees, who are absent from duty on the day of protest, i.e., 19.09.2018.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s OM No. 6/8/ 2009- Estt.(Pay-11) dated 17th June, 2010 on the above subject which provides that there shall be a mandatory ‘cooling off’ period of three years after every period of deputation /foreign service upto Joint Secretary level posts and one year for Additional Secretary level posts.

2. References are received m this Department from various Ministries/ Departments seeking relaxation in respect of provisions of ‘cooling off period between two deputations inter-alia for appointments in the personal staff of Union Ministers.

3. The issue of provision of cooling off period in the cases of appointments in personal staff of Union Ministers has been considered in this Department. Keeping in view the urgency of functional requirement in office of Union Ministers, it has been decided to dispense with the requirement of completion of mandatory ‘cooling off period in respect of officers selected for personal staff of Union Ministers by amending Para 8.4 of this Department’s OM No. 6/8/ 2009-Estt.(Pay-II) dated 17.06.2010, so as to read as under :-

“8.4. There shall be a mandatory ‘cooling off’ period of three year after every period of deputation /foreign service for Joint Secretary and below level officers and one year for Additional Secretary level officers. The requirement of cooling off shall, however, not be insisted upon for appointment in personal staff of Union Ministers. However, those officers who have not completed the required ‘cooling off period from previous deputation and are posted in personal staff of Minister will have to revert to their parent cadre once their term in the personal staff of Minister ends for whatever reason. A prior consent may be obtained from such officers that they are willing to be appointed in personal staff of Minister in waiver of “cooling off’ requirement, fully aware of the condition that they would be reverted back to their parent cadre once their term in personal staff of Minister ends for whatever reason and they will have to complete the “cooling off’ period afresh.

Provided, if an officer is appointed from the personal staff of one Minister to the personal staff of another Minister, the cooling off shall not be insisted upon subject to overall ceiling of 10 years in personal staff of Minister and sub-ceiling of 5 years as PS/ OSD.

Provided further that the officers who are appointed in the personal staff of Minister after completion of required cooling off period from the previous deputation can be appointed to another deputation, in continuation of deputation in the personal staff of Ministers, if duly selected, subject to overall ceiling of deputation, other conditions relating to deputation and NOC of the parent cadre/ organisation. The admissibility of Deputation (Duty) Allowance will, however, be only upto 5th year counting from the initial deputation.”

4. In so far as persons serving in the Indian Audit and Accounts Department are concerned, these orders issue after consultation with the Comptroller and Auditor General of India.

5. This amendment shall be effective from the date of issue of this O.M.

MASTER CIRCULAR ON PROBATION AND CONFIRMATION IN CENTRAL SERVICES PROBATION

1. A person is appointed on probation in order to assess his suitability for absorption in the service to which he has been appointed. Probation should not, therefore, be treated as a mere formality. No formal declaration shall be necessary in respect of appointment on probation. The appointing authority may declare successful completion, extend the period of probation or terminate the services of a temporary employee on probation, on the basis of evaluation of performance.

2. Probation is prescribed when there is direct recruitment, promotion from one Group to another or for officers re-employed before the age of superannuation. The probation shall stand successfully completed on issue of orders in writing. It is, however, not desirable that a Government servant should be kept on probation for long periods.

3. Instead of treating probation as a formality, the existing powers to discharge probationers should be systematically and vigorously used so that the necessity of dispensing with the services of employees at later stages may arise only rarely.

4. Concentration of attention on the probationer’s ability to pass the probationary or the departmental examination, if applicable, is essential part of the qualification for confirmation but not the most important part. There should be a very careful assessment of the outlook, character and aptitude for the kind of work that has to be done in the service before a probationer is confirmed.

5. A probationer should be given an opportunity to work under more than one officer during this period and reports of his work obtained from each one of those officers. The probation reports for the whole period may then be considered is fit to be confirmed in service. For this purpose, separate forms of report on the probationers should be used, which are distinct from the usual Annual Performance Appraisal Report (APAR) forms. The probation reports, unlike APAR, are written to help the supervising officer to concentrate on the special needs of probation and to decide whether the work and conduct of the officer during the period of probation or the extend period of probation are satisfactory enough to warrant his further retention in service or post. The probation reports thus do not serve the purpose for which the APARs are written and vice versa. Therefore, in the case of all probationers or officers on probation, separate probation reports should be written in addition to the usual APARs for the period of probation.

6. Save for exceptional reasons, probation should not be extended for more than a year and in no circumstance an employee should be kept on probation for more than double the normal period.

7. A probationer, who is not making satisfactory progress, should be informed of his shortcomings well before the expiry of the original probationary period so that he can make special efforts at self-improvement. This can be done by giving him a written warning to the effect that his general performance has not been such as to justify his confirmation and that, unless he showed substantial improvement within a specified period, the question of discharging him would have to be considered. Even though this is not required by the rules, discharge from the service being a server, final and irrevocable step, the probationer should be given an opportunity before taking the drastic step of discharge.

8. During the period of probation, or any extension thereof, candidates may be required by Government to undergo such courses of training and instructions and to pass examinations, and tests (including examination In Hindi) as Government may deem fit, as a condition to satisfactory completion of the probation.

MANDATORY INDUCTION TRAINING

9. In all cases of direct recruitment there should be a mandatory induction training of at lest two weeks duration. Successful completion of the training may be made a pre-requisite for completion of probation. The syllabus for the training may be prescribed by the Cadre authorities and the Training Division of DOPT can be consulted, if required. The recruitment rules for all posts, wherever such a provision does not already exist, may be amended to provide for such mandatory training. Till such time as the Recruitment Rules are amended, a clause on the above lines may be included in the offer of appointment.

PERIOD OF PROBATION

The period of probation is prescribed for different posts/services in Central Government on the following lines:

S.No Method of appointment Period of probation
Promotion
1. Promotion from one grade to another but within the same group of posts e.g. from Group ‘C’ to Group ‘C’. No probation.
2. Promotion from one Group to another e.g. Group ‘B’ to Group ‘A’ 2 years or the period
of probation prescribed for the direct recruitment to the post, if any.
DIRECT RECRUITMENT
3. (I) For direct recruitment to posts except clause (ii) below
(ii) For direct recruitment to posts *carrying a Grade Pay of Rs. 7600 or above or to the posts to which the maximum age limit is 35 years or above and where no training is involved,
Note: Training includes on the job or ‘Institution training’
2 years
1 year
4. Officers re-employed before the age of superannuation 2 years
5. Appointment on contract basis, tenure basis, re-employment after superannuation and absorption No probation

(A) DIRECT RECRUITMENT

If a Government servant is appointed to another post by direct recruitment either in the same department or a different department, it may be necessary to consider him for confirmation in the new post in which he has been appointed by direct recruitment irrespective of the fact that the officer was holding the earlier post on a substantive basis. Further confirmation in the new entry grade becomes necessary because the new post may not be in the same line or discipline as the old post in which he has been confirmed and the fact that he was considered suitable for continuance in the old post (which was the basis for his confirmation in that post) would not automatically make him suitable for continuance in the new post the Job requirements of which may be quite different from those of the old post.

(B) PROMOTION

(i) Persons who are inducted into a new service through promotion shall also be placed on probation but there shall be no probation on promotion from one grade to another but within the same group of posts, except when the promotion involves a change in the Group of posts in the same service, e.g. promotion from Group ‘B’ to Group ‘A’ in which case the probation would be for the prescribed period.

(ii) If the recruitment rules do not prescribe any probation, an officer appointed on regular basis (after following the prescribed DPC procedure, etc.) will have all the benefits that a person confirmed in that grade would have.

(C) APPOINTMENT ON CONTRACT BASIS, TENURE BASIS, RE-EMPLOYMENT AFTER SUPERANNUATION AND ABSORPTION

There shall be no probation in the cases for appointment on contract basis, tenure basis, re-employment after superannuation and absorption.

LEAVE TO PROBATIONER, A PERSON ON PROBATION

1. A person appointed to a post on probation shall be entitled to leave under the rules as a temporary or a permanent Government servant according as his appointment is against a temporary or a permanent post. Where such person already holds a lien on a permanent post before such appointment, he shall be entitled to leave as a permanent Government servant.

2. The period of joining time availed of by a probationer on return from leave should be counted towards the prescribed period of probation if but for the leave, he would have continued to officiate in the post to which he was appointed.

3. If, for any reason, it is proposed to terminate the services of a probationer, any leave which may be granted to him shall not extend

(i) Beyond the date on which the probation period as already sanctioned or extended expires, or

(ii) Beyond any earlier date on which his services are terminated by the orders of an authority competent to appoint him.

 

EXTENSION OF PROBATION PERIOD

4. If during the period of probation, a probationer has not undergone the requisite training course or passed the requisite departmental examinations prescribed [proficiency in Hindi, etc.), if any, the period of probation may be extended by such period or periods as may be necessary, subject to the condition that the total period of probation does not exceed double the prescribed period of probation.

5. The Appointing Authority may, if it so thinks fit, extend the period of probation of a Government servant by a specified period but the total period of probation does not exceed double the normal period. In such cases, periodic reviews should be done and extension should not be done for a long period at one time.

6. Where a probationer who has completed the period of probation to the satisfaction of the Central Government is required to be confirmed, he shall be confirmed in the Service/Post at the end of his period of probation, having been completed satisfactorily.

7. Some employees are not able to complete the probation on account of availing leave for long duration during probation period. In such cases if an employee does not complete 75% of the total duration prescribed for probation on account of availing any kind of leave as permissible to a probationer under the Rules, his/her probation period may be extended by the length of the Leave availed, but not exceeding double the prescribed period of probation.

TERMINATION OF PROBATION

8. The decision whether an employee should be confirmed or his probation extended should be taken soon after the expiry of the initial probationary period, that is within six to eight weeks, and communicated to the employee together with the reasons in case of extension. A probationer who is not making satisfactory progress or who shows himself to be inadequate for the service in any way should be informed of his shortcomings well before the expiry of the original probationary period so that he can make special efforts at self-improvement

9. On the expiry of the period of probation, steps should be taken to obtain the assessment reports on the probationer to:-

i. Confirm the probationer/issue orders regarding satisfactory termination of probation, as the case may be, if the probation has been completed to the satisfaction of the competent authority; or

ii. Extend the period of probation or discharge the probationer or terminate the services of the probationer as the case may be, in accordance with the relevant rules and orders, if the probationer has not completed the period of probation satisfactorily.

10. In order to ensure that delays do not occur in confirmation, timely action must be initiated in advance so that the time limit is adherred to.

11. If it appears to the Appointing Authority, at any time, during or at the end of the period of probation that a Government servant has not made sufficient use of his opportunities or is not making satisfactory progress, the Appointing Authority may revert him to the post held substantively by him immediately preceding his appointment, provided he holds a lien thereon or in other cases may discharge or terminate him from service.

12. A Probationer reverted or discharged from service during or at the end of the period of probation shall not be entitled to any compensation.

CONFIRMATION

13. If, during the period of a probation or any extension thereof, as the case may be Government is of the opinion that an officer is not fit for permanent appointment, Government may discharge or revert the officer to the post held by him prior to his appointment in the service, as the case may be.

14. Confirmation will be made only once in the service of an official which will be in the entry grade post/service/cadre provided further confirmation shall be necessary when there is fresh entry subsequently in any other post/service/cadre by way of direct recruitment or otherwise. Confirmation is de linked from the avialbility of permanent vacancy in the grade. In other words, an officer who has successfully completed the probation, as prescribed under relevant rules, may be considered for confirmation. A specific order of confirmation will be issued when the case is cleared from all angels.

15. On satisfactory completion of the period of probation or extension thereof, the Government may confirm a temporary Government servant to his appointment from the date of completion of the period of his probation or extension thereof.

16. The date from which confirmation should be given effect to is the date following the date of satisfactory completion of the prescribed period of probation or the extended period of probation, as the case may be. The decision to confirm the probationer or to extend the period of probation as the case may be should be communicated to the probationer normally within 6 to 8 weeks. Confirmation of the probationer after completion of the period of probation is not automatic but is to be followed by formal orders. As long as no specific orders of confirmation or satisfactory completion of probation are issued to a probationer, such a probationer shall be deemed to have continued on probation.

17. Some employees are not able to complete the probation on account of availing leave for long duration during probation period. In such cases if an employee does not complete 75% of the total duration prescribed for probation on account of availing any kind of leave as permissible to a probationer under the Rules, his/her probation period may be extended by the length of the Leave availed, but not exceeding double the prescribed period of probation.

TERMINATION OF PROBATION

18. The decision whether an employee should be confirmed or his probation extended should be taken soon after the expiry of the initial probationary period, that is within six to eight weeks, and communicated to the employee together with the reasons in case of extension. A probationer who is not making satisfactory progress or who shows himself to be inadequate for the service in any way should be informed of his shortcomings well before the expiry of the original probationary period so that he can make special efforts at self-improvement

19. On the expiry of the period of probation, steps should be taken to obtain the assessment reports on the probationer to:-

i. Confirm the probationer/issue orders regarding satisfactory termination of probation, as the case may be, if the probation has been completed to the satisfaction of the competent authority; or

ii. Extend the period of probation or discharge the probationer or terminate the services of the probationer as the case may be, in accordance with the relevant rules and orders, if the probationer has not completed the period of probation satisfactorily.

20. In order to ensure that delays do not occur in confirmation, timely action must be initiated in advance so that the time limit is adherred to.

21. If it appears to the Appointing Authority, at any time, during or at the end of the period of probation that a Government servant has not made sufficient use of his opportunities or is not making satisfactory progress, the Appointing Authority may revert him to the post held substantively by him immediately preceding his appointment, provided he holds a lien thereon or in other cases may discharge or terminate him from service.

22. A Probationer reverted or discharged from service during or at the end of the period of probation shall not be entitled to any compensation.

CONFIRMATION

23. If, during the period of aprobation or any extension thereof, as the case may be Government is of the opinion that an officer is not fit for permanent appointment, Government may discharge or revert the officer to the post held by him prior to his appointment in the service, as the case may be

24. Confirmation will be made only once in the service of an official which will be in the entry grade post/service/cadre provided further confirmation shall be necessary when there is fresh entry subsequently in any other post/service/cadre by way of direct recruitment or otherwise. Confirmation is de linked from the avialbility of permanent vacancy in the grade. In other words, an officer who has successfully completed the probation, as prescribed under relevant rules, may be considered for confirmation. A specific order of confirmation will be issued when the case is cleared from all angels.

25. On satisfactory completion of the period of probation or extension thereof, the Government may confirm a temporary Government servant to his appointment from the date of completion of the period of his probation or extension thereof.

26. The date from which confirmation should be given effect to is the date following the date of satisfactory completion of the prescribed period of probation or the extended period of probation, as the case may be. The decision to confirm the probationer or to extend the period of probation as the case may be should be communicated to the probationer normally within 6 to 8 weeks. Confirmation of the probationer after completion of the period of probation is not automatic but is to be followed by formal orders. As long as no specific orders of confirmation or satisfactory completion of probation are issued to a probationer, such a probationer shall be deemed to have contined on probation.

28. Where probation on promotion is prescribed, the appointing authority will on completion of the prescribed period of probation assess the work and conduct of the officer himself and in case the conclusion is that the officer is fit to hold the higher grade, he will pass on order declaring that the person concerned has successfully completed the probation. If the appointing authority considers that the work of the officer has not been satisfactory or needs to be watched for some more time he may revert him to the post/service/cadre from which he was promoted, or extend the period of probation, as the case may be.

29. Since there will be no confirmation on promotion before an official is declared to have completed the probation satisfactorily, rigorous screening of his performance should be made and there should be no hesitation to revert a person to the post or grade from which he was promoted if the work of the officer during probation has not been satisfactory.

30. A Government servant appointed by transfer would duly have been confirmed in the earlier post. In such a case further confirmation in the new post would not be necessary and he could be treated as permanent in the new post. Where, however, a Government servant who has not already been confirmed in the old post is appointed by transfer, it would be necessary to confirm him in the new post. In such case, he may be considered for confirmation after watching him for two years. Within that period of two years, the officer would earn two reports in the new grade and the DPC may consider his case for confirmation on the basis of these APARs.
