Dated the 6 December, 2016
Completion of writing of PARs of IAS officers for 2015-16 in SPARROW – reg.
Please refer to my D.O. letter no.4(8)/2008-EO(PR) dated 21.4.2015 making online filing of PAR mandatory for the year 2014-15 onwards. As on date, 6975 number of PARs have been generated online for the year 2015-16. However, it is noted that still 1037 PARs are pending at the self-appraisal stage and 2905 PARs are pending at the stage of reporting authorities i.e. Reporting / Reviewing / Accepting authority (State-wise break-up is enclosed).
2. As per Rule 5(1) of AIS (PAR) Rules, 2007, if a performance appraisal report for a financial year is not recorded by 31st of December of the year in which the financial year ended, no remarks may be recorded thereafter and the officer may be assessed on the basis of the overall record and self assessment for the year, if he has submitted his self-assessment on time
3. In View of the rule position stated above, the window for SPARROW would get closed automatically on the midnight of 31.12.2016, and PARs at whatever stage in the system would also close and be treated as final, I may, therefore, request you to issue necessary instructions to the concerned designed authorities for expediting the PARs, which are yet to be recorded by the reporting / reviewing/ accepting authorities, so that all comments are recorded before 31.12.16.
