Counting of Training period for IPO Examination - Clarification



Whether training period counted for IPO examination?

Answer is YES.


Government of India’s Orders No. 16 below FR. 9(6) reads:

Period of training before appointment to be treated as ‘duty’ for eligibility to sit for departmental examinations:

       It has been decided that in all cases where pre-service training is considered necessary before actual appointment to the post, the period spent by an officer on training immediately before such appointment would count as qualifying service for the purpose of eligibility for appearing in Departmental examinations, even if the officer is not given the scale of pay of the post but only a nominal allowance.

     Hence the candidates are requested to submit their application before the last date (30.09.2016) mentioning the period of training in the application form.

DoPT Order: Alteration of date of birth of a Government Servant — reiteration of the instructions.

F.No.19017/1/2014-Estt (A-IV)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions
Department of Personnel and Training
North Block, New Delhi-110 001
Dated : 16th December, 2014
OFFICE MEMORANDUM


Subject : Alteration of date of birth of a Government Servant — reiteration of the instructions.
Rule 56 of Fundamental Rules states that except as otherwise provided in the rule, every Government servant will retire from service on the afternoon of the last day of the month in which he attains the age of sixty years.


Provided that a Government servant whose date of birth is the first of a month shall retire from service on the afternoon of the last day of the preceding month on attaining the age of sixty years.
2.  As per Note 6 below the aforesaid Rule, the date of on which a Government servant attains the age of fifty-eight years or sixty years, as the case may be, shall be determined with reference to the date of birth declared by the Government servant at the time of appointment and accepted by the Appropriate Authority on production, as far as possible, of confirmatory documentary evidence such as High School or Higher Secondary or Secondary School Certificate or extracts from Birth Register. The date of birth so declared by the Government servant and accepted by the Appropriate Authority shall not be subject to any alteration except as specified in this note. An alteration of date of birth of a Government servant can be made, with the sanction of a Ministry or Department of the Central Government, or the Comptroller and Auditor-General in regard to persons serving in the Indian Audit and Accounts Department, or an Administrator of a Union Territory under which the Government servant is serving, if —
(a) a request in this regard is made within five years of his entry into Government service;
(b) it is clearly established that a genuine bona fide mistake has occurred; and
(c) the date of birth so altered would not make him ineligible to appear in any School or University of Union Public Service Commission examination in which he had appeared, or for entry into Government service on the date on which he first appeared at such examination or on the date on which he entered Government service.
3. The Supreme Court of India in Civil Appeal No.502 of 1993 — Union of India Vs. Harnam Singh — Judgement dated 9th February, 1993 had observed that :
"Inordinate and unexplained delay or laches on the part of the respondent to seek the necessary correction would in any case have justified the refusal of relief to him. His inaction for all this period of about thirty five years from the date of joining service, therefore precludes him from showing that the entry of his date of birth in service record was not correct".
The observations of the Apex Court was also circulated to all Ministries and Departments of the Government of India vide OM No.19017/2/92-Estt.(A) dated 19-5-1993.
4. All the Ministries and Departments are requested to keep the above in view while processing cases of requests for changes of date of birth.

Dated the 23rd, December, 2013
OFFICE MEMORANDUM
Subject: Consolidated Instructions on Forwarding of Applications of Government Servants for Outside Employment-regarding.
The undersigned is directed to refer to the subject mentioned above and to say that various instructions/guidelines have been issued by the Government from time to time regarding forwarding of applications of Government Servants for posts outside their own Cadre. All such instructions issued till date have been consolidated under easily comprehensible headings for the facility of reference and placed as Annexure to this O.M. All Ministries/Departments are requested to bring the above guidelines to the notice of all concerned.

(J.A.Vaidyanathan)
Director (Establishment)
Annexure to DOPT O. M.No.28020/1/2010-Estt(C) dated December, 2013.
FORWARDING OF APPLICATIONS

GENERAL GUIDELINES
These guidelines relate to forwarding of applications of Government servants as direct recruit for posts within the Central Government, State Governments, Autonomous / Statutory Bodies, CPSEs etc. It may be noted that in a case in which a particular employee cannot be spared without serious detriment to important work in hand, public interest would justify withholding of his application even if otherwise the application would have been forwarded. It may be added for information that where for good and sufficient reasons an application is withheld no infringement of any Constitutional right is involved.
[O.M. No. 170/51-Ests., dated the 21.10.1952)
2. INTERPRETING THE TERM ‘PUBLIC INTEREST
a. The Heads of Departments should interpret the term ‘public interest’ strictly and subject to that consideration, the forwarding of applicatior should be the rule rather than an exception. Ordinarily, every employee (whether scientific and technical or non-scientific and non-technical personnel) should be permitted to apply for an outside post even though he may be holding a permanent post.
b. No distinction need be made between applications made for posts in a Department under the Central government, Autonomous Bodies or sub-ordinate offices, posts under the State Governments, posts in Public Sector Undertakings owned wholly or partly by the Central Government or a State Government and posts in quasi-Government organizations. They should all be treated alIke so far as the forwarding of applications is concerned. If, however, a Government servant desires to apply for a post in a private concern, he should submit his resignation or notice of retirement, as the case may be, before applying for private employment.
c. For this purpose, “scientific and technical personnel”, may be interpreted to mean persons holding posts or belonging to services which have been declared to be scientific or technical posts or scientific or technical service.
(OM. No. 70/10/60-Estt, (A), dated 09.05.1960 and O.M. No. 8/7/69-Ests(C) dated the 01.11.1970
3. GENERAL PRINCIPLES FOR DEALING WITH SUCH APPLICATIONS
The general principles to be observed in dealing with such applications are as under:
a. Applications from purely temporary Government Servants - Applications from such 
Government servants should be readily forwarded unless there are compelling grounds of public interest for withholding them.
b. Applications from permanent Government servants - Both permanent non-scientific and non-technical employees as well as permanent scientific and technical employees could be given four opportunities in a year to apply for outside posts, except where withholding of any application is considered by the competent authority to be justified in the public interest. A permanent Government servant cannot justly complain of hardship or harsh treatment if his application for any other post or employment is withheld.
c. Applications of Government servants who have been given some technical training at Government expenses after commencement of service - Such Government servant cannot justifiably complain of hardship if he is not allowed to capitalize the special qualifications so gained by seeking other better employment. Withholding of application in such a case is therefore justifiable.
d. Applications of Government servants belonging to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, other than ‘scientific and technical personnel — Applications for employment of temporary or permanent Central Government servants belonging to Scheduled Castes andScheduled Tribes should be readily forwarded except in very rare cases where there may be compelling grounds of public interest for withholding such application. The withholding of application should be the exception rather than the nile in the case of employees belonging to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes who should be afforded every facility to improve their prospects.
e. Application of Government servants for employment in private business and industrial firm. etc. - Where a Government servant (including a temporary Government servant) seeks permission, to apply for such employment, he should submit his resignation or notice of retirement, as the case may be, before applying for private employment. He cannot complain of hardship if his application is withheld. While a person remains in Government service, the State can legitimately refuse to surrender its claim on his services in favour of a private employer.
[O.M. NO. 170/51-ESTS., DATED ThE 21.10.1952; OM NO. 70/10/60-ESTS(A) DATED 09.03.1960. OM No.1/6/64-SCT.I DATED 19.03.1964; O.M NO, 5/2/68-ESTT.(C) DATED 06.O5.1968. OM No.8/7/69-ESTS(C)DATED 01.II.1970; OM No. 8/15/71-ESTS(C) DATED 16.09.1971, OM No. 8/22/71-ESTS(C) DATED16.10.1971]
4. PROCEDURE TO BE FOLLOWED IN THE CASE OF THOSE WHO APPLY FOR POSTS IN THE SAME/ OTHER CENTRAL GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS/STATE GOVERNMENT/ AUTONOMOUS BODY / CENTRAL PUBLIC SECTOR ENTERPRISES ETC.
a) Applications from Government servants for employment elsewhere, submitted otherwise than in response to advertisement or circulars inviting applications, should not be forwarded.
(O.M. No. 5/3/65-Ests(C) dated the 21.12.1965]
b) The applications may be forwarded in accordance with the general principles given inpreceding paragraphs. irrespective of whether the post applied for in the other department/offices permanent or temporary.
c) As for temporary Government servants they should, as a matter of rule, be asked to resign from the parent department/office at the time of release from the parent department/office. An undertaking to the effect that he/she will resign from the parent department/office in the event of his/her selection and appointment to the post applied for may be taken from his/her at the time of forwarding the application. This procedure is to be followed even in case of a temporary Government servant applying as a direct recruit for a post in the same organisation.
d) In the case of permanent Government servants, their lien may be retained in the parent department/office for a period of two years incase of the new post being in the Central/state Government. They should either revert to the parent department/office within that period or resign from the parent department/office at the end of that period. An undertaking to abide by these conditions may be taken from them at the time of forwarding the applications to other departments/office. In exceptional cases where it would take some time for the other department/office to confirm such Government servants due to the delay in converting temporary posts into permanent ones, or due to some other administrative reasons, the permanent Government servants may be permitted to retain their lien in the parent department/office for one more year. While granting such permission, a fresh undertaking similar to the one indicated above may be taken from the permanent Government servants by the parent department.
e) Permanent Government servants on their being selected for appointment in an autonomous Body / CPSE will have to resign before they are penitent to join the new organization. In their case no lien shall be retained and they will be governed by the orders issued by Department of Pensions & Pensioners’ Welfare regulating mobility of personnel between Central Govt and Autonomous Bodies / CPSEs etc.
f) The Terms of the bond need not be enforced in the cases of those who apply for appointment elsewhere, other than private employment, through proper channel. However, the obligations under the bond would be carried forward to the new employment. An undertaking to this effect may be obtained from the Govt. servant before he is relieved.
(OM. No. 60/37/63.Ests(A) dated 14.07.1967; OM No. 8/4/70-Ests(C) dated 06.03.1974; O.M.
No. 28016/5/85-Estt(C) dated 31.01.1986]
5. POSTS ADVERTISED BY UNION PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION (UPSC/STAFF SELECTION COMMISSION(SSC) 
a) Where Government servants apply directly to UPSC/SSC as in the case of direct recruit, they must immediately inform the head of their Office/Department giving details of the amination/post for which they have applied, requesting him to communicate his permission to the Commission directly. If. however, the Head of the Office/Department considers it necessary to withhold the requisite permission, he should inform the Commission accordingly within thirty days of the date of closing for receipt of applications. In case any situation mentioned in para 6 below is existing, the requisite permission should not be granted and UPSC/SSC should be
immediately informed of this fact as also the nature of allegations against the Government servant. It should also be made clear that in the event of actual selection of Government servant, he would not be relieved for taking up the appointment, if the charge-sheet / prosecution sanction is issued or a charge-sheet is filed in a court for criminal prosecution, or if the Government servant is placed under suspension.
b) It may be noted that in case of direct recruitment by selection, i.e., “selection by interview”, it is the responsibility of the requisitioning Ministry/Department to bring to the notice of the Commission any point regarding unsuitability of the candidate (Government servant) from the vigilance angle and that the appropriate stage for doing so would be the consultation at the time of preliminary scrutiny, i.e., when the case is referred by the Commission to the Ministry/Departments for the comments of the Ministry’s representatives on the provisional selection of the candidate for interview by the Commission.
[OM. No. 14017/01/91-Estt.(RR) dated the 14th July, 1993 & O.M.No.20016/1/88-Estt.(C)
dated 18/07/1980)
c) When once the Administrative Authority has forwarded an application, it is mandatory that the Government employee concerned should be released to take up the new appointment. However, where subsequent to the forwarding of the application, but before selection if exceptional circumstances arise in which it may not be possible to release the official, the fact should be communicated to the Commission as well as to the official concerned. The decision not to release an official should be taken only where the circumstances referred to above arereally exceptional.
[OM. No. 60/43/64-Ests(A) dated the 24.08.1965)
6. CIRCUMSTANCES IN WHICH APPLICATION SHOULD NOT BE FORWARDED

[O.M. No. 14017/101/91-Estt.(RR) dated the 14th July 1993]

Expenses for the Training to be Repaid if Employee Quits


The Centre has made it mandatory for bureaucrats to execute a bond to pay back all expenses incurred by the government before taking up an advanced training programme, in case they leave the course or service mid-way.

“The officer selected for the APPPA programme will be required to execute a Bond prior to his/her joining the programme and submit the same to his/her Cadre Controlling Authority that he/she will serve the Government for a period of five years, or to repay the total expenses incurred on the training in the event of his/her resignation, voluntary retirement or quitting programme without completing,” Joint Secretary (Training), DoPT, Upma Srivastava said.
