(As per standard list)

Subject: Promotion of Railway employees - consideration of ACRs

With reference to above mentioned PNM item, the said matter has been carefully considered by this Ministry and it has been decided that in order to avoid any ambiguity on the issue, average marks of the last two ACRs be taken into account for the purpose of ACR for the third year, where minimum residency period for promotion to the next higher grade is two years and the ACR for the third year is not available, so that all eligible canditates having rendered minimum two years of service are not deprived of being considered for selection to the next higher grade on the ground of non-availability of ACR for the third year.

2. Accordingly, the Indian Railway Establishment Manual Vol, I may be amended as in the Advance Correction Slip No. 226 enclosed.

Please acknowledge receipt of this letter.

Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions


DOPT Launched Internship Scheme, 2013 from September 01

The Department of Personnel and Training, Government of India has initiated an Internship Scheme from 1st September 2013 to engage Indian Nationals, who are Graduate /Post Graduate or Research Students enrolled in reputed University/Institution within India or abroad and preferably specializing in HR and associated subjects in Public Policy and Public Administration, as “Interns”. These interns would be expected to supplement the process of policy analysis within the Department through desirable empirical collection and collation of in-house and other information.

The exposure for the interns to the functioning of the Indian Government may be an add-on in furthering their own career goals in the Non Profit Organisation (NPO) Sector or International Organizations. The internship shall be for a minimum period of 2 months but shall not exceed 6 months in individual cases.

The DoPT has identified ten topics for the current year for the Interns. The topics are: Analysis of cases disposed of by Central Administrative Tribunal; Collection of Data on Reservation from Ministries and its analysis; Issues relating to Anti-Corruption Law; Issues relating to punishment of Government employees for unethical behavior; Exit policies for inefficient public servants; Best HR practices; Service Conditions; Expectations of Persons with Disabilities employees; Impact evaluation of Mid-Career Training Program of Central Secretariat Service (CSS)Central Secretariat Stenographers Service (CSSS) and Revising methodology of training program.

DoPT has invited applications from the interested candidates in prescribed Proforma through its Circular dated 30th August, 2013. The DoPT Circular and the application Proforma is available on the DoPT website www.persmin.nic.in.

All Group Controllers

Subject: Stepping up of pay to the direct recruit JWMs at par with junior

References have been received by this office regarding stepping up of pay to the directly recruited JWMs through UPSC at par with those JWMs who had been placed at the same grade by virtue of merger of posts of AF and JWM as per 6th CPC, in the light of DOPT OM No. 200020/4/2010-Estt.(D) dtd 13.9.2012.

In this connection, it may be stated that ibid DOPT order has defined only the seniority position of Govt. servants as on 29-08-2008 in respect of holder of post having higher pay scale or post which constituted promotion post for the posts in the feeder grade vis-a-vis to those holding post having lower pay scale or posts in feeder grade but placed w.e.f 1.1.2006 to the higher post due to merger of posts. The clarification thus effectively defines placement of Govt. servant who got the benefit of merger below the Govt. servants who were already holder of the higher post prior to the date of implementation of 6th CPC i.e, 29.8.2008. However, such seniority to the holder of the post does not entitle them any stepping up of pay benefit as pay of the juniors hove been fixed based on the pay they already earned by virtue of their service.

Attention is also invited in this regard to clause 2(e) of GOI decision no.23 under FR 22 where it has been clearly stated that "where a person promoted from lower to a higher post, his pay is fixed with reference to the pay drawn by him in the lower post under FR-22 1(a)(i) and he is likely to get more pay than a direct appointee whose pay is fixed under different set of rules. In such cases, the senior direct recruit cannot claim pay parity with the junior promoted from a lower post to higher post as seniority alone is not a sole criteria for allowing stepping up".

Keeping in view of the above, it is felt not to extend stepping up benefit in such type of cases.

Br. AOs under your control may please be intimated accordingly.

C of A (Fys) has been consulted.
