pension forms for retiring central government employees

Issuing a fresh set of dos and don’ts for civil pensioners, the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions has also ruled out photographs with coloured and dark glasses and long hair covering the eyes.

Do not paste/upload black and white photographs. Dimensions of photographs and signature should not be smaller that the box provided in the application form. Photograph should not be in the form of selfie, it said in its recent directive.

Central government civil pensioners are required to submit three copies of a joint photograph (or separate photographs) with their wives or husbands (duly attested by head of office) along with form 5 of the Central Civil Service Pension Rules 1972 for affixing on a payment pension order.

A government servant must get the form, which has fields to fill in personal details, from the head of office eight months before the date of his or her retirement.

According to the ministry, a photograph with a dark background or in uniform, or with eyes hidden under coloured or dark glasses will not be accepted. Photograph in computer print will not be accepted, it said.

The photograph is not to be signed and the eyes must not be covered by hair, the ministry said.

Glares on eyeglasses should be avoided with a slight upward or downward tilt of the head, it said.

The ministry has issued the fresh set of guidelines to all central government departments.

The purpose behind issuing these guidelines is to ensure prompt disposal of pension cases so that retired government employees do not have to wait for long to get their pension, a senior ministry official said.

There are about 48.41 lakh central government employees and 61.17 lakh pensioners.

Pensioners to supervise government jobs recruitment exams

Pensioners to supervise government jobs recruitment exams

New Delhi: In a first, the Centre has decided to rope in pensioners to supervise government jobs recruitment exams conducted by Staff Selection Commission(SSC)

The SSC, which conducts examinations to select hundreds of candidates for various mid-level central government jobs, has written to Personnel Ministry in this regard.

The retired central government employees will be engaged as Inspecting Officers and members of the flying squad for conducting and supervising of examinations at various places, according to a note by the ministry.

The SSC has also sought a list of pensioners from the ministry to choose appropriate candidates, it said.

The Commission is one of the largest recruiting agencies in the country mandated to conduct eight exams.

There are about 58 lakh central government pensioners.

The Personnel Ministry already maintains a repository of pensioners in an online initiative called Sankalp, which provides a platform for the pensioners to access opportunities available for useful interventions in the society.

It also facilitates the organisations working in these areas to select appropriate skill and expertise from the available pool of volunteers.

There are 1,815 pensioners registered with the Sankalp. The ministry wants all pensioners to get themselves registered on this platform.

Government to set up 2 Committees to hire retired Central Government Employees

Government to set up 2 Committees to hire retired Central Government Employees

NEW DELHI – Two committees will soon be set up by the government for hiring of retired CG employees as consultants in various Ministries and departments, Lok Sabha was informed today.

Minister for Personnel and PMO Jitendra Singh said bureaucrats and polity were two essential pillars of democracy and bureaucrats and civil servants were tools of governments.

“We can’t achieve good governance with bad tools. Therefore, it sometimes become necessary to appoint retired bureaucrats. We are now planning to set up a committee with representatives of concerned Ministries or Departments as well as Department of Personnel which will select such candidates.

“If the appointment would be for more than two years and the salary would be more than Rs 50,000, another committee, headed by the Cabinet Secretary, would consider any such proposal of appointment of retired bureaucrats,” he said during Question Hour.

The Minister said while appointing retired bureaucrats as consultants, the government’s efforts were always objective rather than subjective.

“As the consultants and advisors are not to be engaged against regular posts, it is not likely to affect the morale of serving officials or employment opportunities for the youth. Moreover they bring expertise with them which only improves overall efficiency of the government,” he said.

Singh said as per the extant rules, the Ministries and Departments may hire external professionals, consultancy firms or consultants for a specific job, not against regular post. Some retired senior civil servants having expertise and eminence are also appointed as advisors with a view to achieve certain specified public policy objectives.

The Minister said the government is also framing guidelines for appointment of retired CG employees as consultants.
