Central Civil Service (Classification, Control and Appeal) Rules, 1965 — Instruction regarding timely review of suspension.

F. No. 11012/17/2013-Estt.A-III
Government of India

North Block, New Delhi — 110001
Dated November 18th 2014

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Central Civil Service (Classification, Control and Appeal) Rules, 1965 — Instruction regarding timely review of suspension.

Rule 10 of the Central Civil Services (Classification, Control and Appeal) Rules, 1965, deals with the provisions of suspension. As per the rule, a Government servant may be placed under suspension, in the following circumstances:

(a) where a disciplinary proceeding against him is contemplated or is pending; or
(b) where, in the opinion of the authority aforesaid, he has engaged himself in activities prejudicial to the interest of the security of the State; or
(c) where a case against him in respect of any criminal offence is under investigation, inquiry or trial:

2. A Disciplinary Authority may also consider it appropriate to place a Government servant under suspension in the following circumstances. These are only intended for guidance and should not be taken as mandatory:-

(i) Cases where continuance in office of the Government servant will prejudice the investigation, trial or any inquiry (e.g. apprehended tampering with witnesses or documents);
(ii) where the continuance in office of the Government servant is likely to seriously subvert discipline in the office in which the public servant is working;
(iii) where the continuance in office of the Government servant will be against the wider public interest [other than those covered by (i) and (ii)] such as there is public scandal and it is necessary to place the Government servant under suspension to demonstrate the policy of the Government to deal strictly with officers involved in such scandals, particularly corruption;
(iv) where allegations have been made against the Government servant and preliminary inquiry has revealed that a prima facie case is made out which would justify his prosecution or is being proceeded against in departmental proceedings, and where the proceedings are likely to end in his conviction and/or dismissal, removal or compulsory retirement from service.

3. In the first three circumstances the Disciplinary Authority may exercise his discretion to place a Government servant under suspension even when the case is under investigation and before a prima facie case has been established. Suspension may be desirable in the circumstances indicated below:-

(i) any offence or conduct involving moral turpitude;
(ii) corruption, embezzlement or misappropriation of Government money, possession of disproportionate assets, misuse of official powers for personal gain;

(iii) serious negligence and dereliction of duty resulting in considerable loss to Government
(iv) desertion of duty;
(v) refusal or deliberate failure to carry out written orders of superior officers In respect of the types of misdemeanor specified in sub-clauses (iii) and
(v) discretion has to be exercised with care.

3. Rules 10(6) and 10(7) of the CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965, deal with review of the suspension cases. The provision for review within ninety day is applicable to all types of suspensions. However, in cases of continued detention, the review becomes a mere formality with no consequences as a Government servant in such a situation has to continue to be under deemed suspension. A review of suspension is not necessary in such cases.

4. It has been brought to the notice of this Department that in cases of prolonged suspension period, the courts have pointed out that the suspension cannot be continued for long and that inspite of the instructions of DoP&T, the Disciplinary Authorities are not finalizing the disciplinary proceedings within the stipulated time. Also, in such cases the Government is unnecessarily paying subsistence allowance without extracting any work and if, on the culmination of the disciplinary proceedings, the charged officer is exonerated from the charges, the Government has to unnecessarily pay the full salary and treat the period of suspension as on duty etc.. It is, therefore, desirable that timely review of suspension is conducted in a just and proper manner and that the disciplinary proceedings are finalized expeditiously.

5. All Ministries/ Departments are requested to bring the existing instructions on timely review of suspension and expeditious completion of disciplinary proceedings to the notice all concerned under their control.

PRESS RELEASE OF THE EVE OF 90 th ANNUAL CONVENTION OF ALL INDIA RAILWAYMEN FEDERATION

A.I.R.F
All India Railwaymen Federation
PRESS RELEASE
HUBLI  , 18th Nov, 2014

On the eve of 90th Annual Convention of All India Railwaymen Federation, Shri, Shiva Gopal Mishra, General  Secretary, AIRF addressing the press conference informed that 90th Annual Convention of AIRF is being  organized at Hubli from 18th to 20th November, 2014, where approximately more than 30,000 Railwaymen will take  part.

While addressing the press conference on date Comrade Shiva Gopal Mishra, General Secretary, mentioned that  Government of India have constituted a “High Power Railway Re-structuring Committee” under the  Chairmanship of Shri Bibek Debroy to study all the aspects regarding functioning of Railway Board & Railway  systems and submit their report for Restructuring of the Railway system which is in existence from it’s inception which clearly indicates that Indian Railway future is at stake.

Shri Mishra also said that the Government of India and Railway Ministry have approved 100% FDI and PPP in the Railway system which will definitely hamper the functioning and operation of the Railway network, as a result of which in due course of time, the Railway users have to face a great inconvenience. The role of the capitalist in the  Railway will damage the goodwill because they will work for their profit and not for Railwaymen and public at  large.

Shri Mishra also stressed that the Government of India is reluctant to consider the long pending legitimate  demands of Railwaymen as regards the Merger of DA in Pay, Interim relief, scrapping of New Pension Scheme  and on other side various amendments in labour laws are being enforced just to crush the labour/workmen. The  All India Railwaymen Federation & JCM (staff side) have tried at the level best to settle the all demands of  Railwaymen and other Central Government employees amicably but the Government of India adamant to accede  the genuine demand of the Railwaymen and other Government employees, leaving no option left with us, except  to go on Countrywide Indefinite Strike for which the responsibility will lies on the Government.

He told that All India Railwaymen’s Federation will still try a peaceful redressel to our problems but if Central  Government & Railway Ministry could not resolve the long pending issues and will move on the path of  privatization of Indian Railways, we will be forced for precipitative action along with all the stake holders which  covers other Unions/Associations and user organizations.

He also told that this grand Convention is being hosted by the our affiliates Union South Western Railway  Mazdoor Union under the leadership of Comrade A.M.D. Cruze & their other fellow comrades.

Number of Subscribers Registered Under National Pension System (NPS) -PIB

Number of Subscribers Registered Under National Pension Systemnps (NPS) has more than Doubled
Since April 2012 from about 11.5 Lakh to 23 Lakh:Chairman,Pfrda ; Number of States Joining NPS has Increased from 12 to 26 ; Pfrda Working Towards Notification of Various Regulations in Respect of Efficient Management of Funds, Seamless Grievance Handling and Systems for Risk Mitigation and Containment Among Others

Shri Hemant Contractor, Chairman, Pension Fund Regulatory Development Authority (PFRDA) said that the number of subscribers registered under National Pension System (NPS) has more than doubled since April 2012 from about 11.5 Lakh to 23 Lakh. He commended the substantial improvement in performance of State Governments since April 2012.. He said that the Asset Under Management has also increased 7 fold from Rs.3,300 crores to approximately Rs.24,000 crores while the average contribution upload per month has increased from Rs.180 crores to approximately Rs.900 crores. Shri Contractor was speaking at a Conference on Implementation of National Pension System (NPS) by State Governments organized here today by Pension Fund Regulatory Development Authority (PFRDA). The main objective of the Conference was to focus on progress of performance of the State Governments and also to discuss the implications of the passage and notification of the PFRDA Act for respective States who are offering NPS to their respective employees.

Shri Contractor, Chairman, PFRDA informed, that barring the two States, all the other State Governments, have notified joining NPS. Since the last such conference held in April 2012, the number of States joining NPS has increased from 12 to 26, he added. He said that PFRDA was in talks with the other two State Governments on their joining NPS.

Shri Contractor, Chairman, PFRDA, further said that with the passage and notification of the Act, PFRDA has been conferred with a statutory status. Its mandate covers development of the pension sector as also framing regulations for the advancement of the NPS and protection of the interest of the subscribers. He informed the participants that regulations under the Act are expected to be notified within the next two months. The Chairman added that steps have been taken for communicating more frequently with the subscribers to increase awareness levels about NPS. He directed the State Government officials to regularly visit the PFRDA website for updates on various policies and information. Shri Contractor added that there were various points of concerns which have to be dealt with proactively to protect the interest of the subscribers. He added that this conference and more in the coming years would act as a platform for discussion with PFRDA and interactions with other states to share their best practices.

Earlier speaking on the occasion, Dr. Anup Wadhawan, Joint Secretary, Department of Financial Services, Ministry of Finance emphasised upon the fact that NPS of the Central and the State Governments forms the backbone of the NPS as it is a direct replacement of the erstwhile DB pension system. Hence, its proper implementation is very important for the NPS product as well as the sector, he added. Dr. Wadhawan further stressed upon the fact that the State Government Nodal offices need to keep the information in respect of their employees like email ids, mobile numbers and addresses etc. updated in all respects at regular intervals. Dr. Wadhawan further asked the State Governments to sort-out the issue of legacy contributions and inclusion of State Autonomous Bodies in an expeditious manner. He further called upon the State Governments to further the cause of the Government of India promoted NPS Swavalamban scheme for economically weaker sections of the unorganised sector, through their respective Rural Development Departments.

Shri R V Verma, Member (Finance) laid emphasis on the fact that despite NPS being voluntary in nature; most of the State Governments have proactively adopted it. He further dwelt on the fact that the paradigm shift from the Defined Benefit to the Defined Contribution has put the subscriber’s interest at the centre and the involvement of the subscriber’s right from the entry into the system up to his/her exit becomes prominent. He mentioned that the involvement of the State Government Nodal offices, as the first point of interaction of the subscriber attains importance. He added that with the passage of the Act, PFRDA is working towards notification of various regulations in respect of the efficient management of funds, seamless grievance handling and systems for risk mitigation and containment. Shri Verma emphasised that various issues like expanding coverage, adequately safeguarding the interest of the subscriber and robust risk management system is of paramount important for protecting the interest of subscribers. He said that synchronization of information and funds is very important in NPS; hence Nodal offices have to lay emphasis on the same. He stated that it is the collective endeavour of the Regulator and the stakeholders involved i.e. State Governments, State Autonomous Bodies (SAB) and their Nodal offices, that a two way feedback process has to be in place to innovate upon the operational aspects of the NPS.

Though it is mandatory to register under National Pension System (NPS) for the joinees/employees of the Central Government who have joined or are joining it on or after 01-01-2004, yet most of the State Governments have adopted NPS voluntarily for their employees from their respective adoption dates. Currently, NPS has 76 Lakh subscribers with total Asset Under Management (AUM) of Rs.68,000 crores. Out of this, State Government sector has approx. 23 Lakh subscribers with AUM of Rs.30,000 crores.

Payments on the basis of Life Certificate

OFFICE OF THE PR. CONTROLLER OF DEFENCE ACCOUNTS (PENSION) 
DRAUPADI GHAT, ALLAHABAD- 211014
Important Circular No.176
Dated: 17.11.2014
Subject: Payments on the basis of Life Certificate 

Provisions regarding payment of pension to defence pensioner/family pensioners on the basis of Life Certificates are provided in Defence Pension Payment Instructions 2013.

2. As per the extant procedure, pensioner who does not appear in person for one or other reasons can produce a Life Certificate as in Form No. 5 of Appendix 11 to DPPI 2013 from one of the authorities mentioned at items I to XIX of para 69 of ibid Instructions during the month of November every year. Similar provisions are available in Scheme for payment of pensions of Defence Pensioners by Public Sector Banks. This causes hardship particularly to those who are aged and/or infirm Pensioners. Besides, the existing system is prone to misuse by way of fraudulent withdrawls causing loss to the exchequer.

3. To overcome above causes /situation, the Department of Electronics & IT, Ministry of Communications & IT, Government of India has developed “Jeevan Pramaan Digital Life Certificate” Portal (jeevanpramaan.gov.in).

4. In view of the above, it has been decided that with immediate effect a Life Certificate issued online by a Government Agency as a result of Aadhaar Biometric Authentication will also be accepted as a valid certificate. This document may be accessed through a website ( to be notified separately) by the Pension Disbursing Agency without insisting either on personal appearance of the pensioner or Life Certificate by the competent authority referred above.

Inclusion of eligible officers who are due to retire before the likely date of vacancies, in the panel for promotion

NO. 22011/1/2014-Estt(D)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions
(Department of Personnel and Training)

North Block, New Delhi – 110001
Dated- 14th November, 2014

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: – Inclusion of eligible officers who are due to retire before the likely date of vacancies, in the panel for promotion-Regarding.

The undersigned is directed to invite reference to the Department of Personnel and Training Office Memorandum No. 2201114/98-Estt(D) dated October 12, 1998 regarding consideration of retired employees who were within the zone of consideration in the relevant year(s) but are not actually in service when the DPC is being held. The said OM provides as follows:

“……..There is no specific bar in the aforesaid Office Memorandum dated April 10, 1989 or any other related instructions of the Department of Personnel and Training for consideration of retired employees, while preparing year-wise panel(s), who were within the zone of consideration in the relevant year(s). According to legal opinion also it would not be in order if eligible employees, who were within the zone of consideration for the relevant year(s) but are not actually in service when the DPC is being held, are not considered while preparing year-wise zone of consideration/panel and, consequently, their juniors are considered (in their places), who would not have been in the zone of consideration if the DPC(s) had been held in time. This is considered imperative to identify the correct zone of consideration for relevant Year(s). Names of the retired officials may also be included in the panel(s). Such retired officials would, however, have no right for actual promotion. The DPC(s) may, if need be, prepare extended panel(s) following the principles prescribed in the Department of Personnel and Training Office Memorandum No.22011/8/87-Estt.(D) dated April 9, 1996.”

2. Appointment Committee of Cabinet has observed that DPCs often do not consider such eligible officers who are retiring before the occurrence of the vacancy in the panel year. These undesirable trends negate the very purpose of the above said Office Memorandum No. 22011/4/98-Estt(D) dated October 12, 1998 and it is also against the principle of natural justice.

3. All the Ministries/Departments are therefore advised to ensure strict compliance of the instructions of the Department of Personnel & Training issued vide this Department’s OM No. 22011/4/98-Estt(D) dated October 12, 1998.

4. These instructions may please be brought out to the notice of all concerned including attached and subordinate offices.

Sub: Posting of Government employees who have differently abled dependents – reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s OM of even number dated 06.06.2014 (copy enclosed) exempting a Government employee, who is also a care giver of disabled child, from the routine exercise of transfer/rotational transfer subject to the administrative constraints.

2. The matter regarding the scope of ‘disabled’ has been examined in consultation with the Department of Disability Affairs. Considering the fact that the autism spectrum disorder child requires constant caregiver support and it would be imperative for the Government employees to take care of their autism spectrum disorder child on continuous basis, it has been decided to include ‘Autism’ in the term ‘disabled’, as defined in Para 3 of the above-mentioned O.M. dated 06.06.2014.

3. This issues with the approval of the MoS (PP).

4. All the Ministries/Departments, etc. are requested to bring these instructions to the notice of all concerned under their control.
