***

The undersigned is directed to say that the Government had appointed a Committee of Experts to review the procedure for DisciplinaryNigilance Inquiries and recommend measures for their expeditious disposal.

The Committee comprised the following:

(i) Shri P.C. Hota, Former Chairman, UPSC - Chairman
(ii) Slid Arvind Varma, Former Secretary, DoPT - Member
(iii) Shri P. Shankar, former CVC - Member.

2. The Expert Committee has, in para 48 of its Report, made the following recommendation:-

"48. For major penalty Inquiries as envisaged in Article 311(2) of the Constitution, where the Inquiry Officer has to do a detailed inquiry into the Articles of Charge by examination of witnesses both of the Presenting Officer and of the delinquent Government Servant and where relevant documents have to be examined/exhibited for a just decision in the case, the maximum time could be twelve months from the date of service of the Articles of Charge before the case records are referred to the UPSC for advice under Article 320(3)(c) of the Constitution.

Hopefully, if the UPSC takes a maximum period of five to six months to give its considered advice, the Disciplinary Inquiry for a major penalty can be concluded within a maximum period of eighteen months from the date of service of Articles of Charge on the delinquent Government Servant till the date of the final order by the Disciplinary Authority, after consultation with the UPSC. (Elsewhere in this Report, we have recommended that the CVC's second stage advice may be dispensed with because of reasons mentioned by us. We would like to leave it to the best judgment of the UPSC to devise methods for reducing the time talcen by it in rendering its advice under Article 320(3) (c) of the Constitution.)".

3. The aforesaid recommendation of the Hota Committee was considered by a Committee of Secretaries (CoS) under the chairmanship of Cabinet Secretary. The CoS has, inter alia, taken note of the fact that, vide DoPT's 0.M.No.372/19/2011-AVD-111(Pt.1) dated 26th September, 2011, the second stage consultation with the Central Vigilance Commission has already been dispensed with and that it is only in cases where consultation with UPSC is not required as per extant rules/instructions, the second stage consultation with CVC is now necessary. The CoS also took note of the fact that the introduction of a single window system in the UPSC to accept files regarding major penalty proceedings has led to considerable reduction in time taken to conclude major penalty proceedings. The CoS has accordingly recommended that the recommendation of the Hota Committee in para 48 of its report as referred to above may be accepted. The  recommendation has accordingly been accepted by the Government and it has been decided that all Ministries/Departments shall ensure that all major penalty proceedings against government servants under their control are completed and final orders are passed by the concerned Disciplinary Authority within 18 months from the date of delivery of charge-sheet on the delinquent government servant.

4. The above decision of the Govenunent is brought to the notice of all Ministries/Departments for strict compliance.

The rule 28 of the CCS (Leave) Rules, 1972which came into effect from 1.9.2008
regulates the grant of Earned Leave for
persons serving in the Vacation
Department. The said rule provides for as
follows:-
(1) (a) A Government servant(other than a
military officer) serving in a Vacation
Department shall not be entitled to any
earned leave in respect of duty performed in
any year in which he avails himself of the
full vacation.
(b) In respect of any year in which a
Government servant avails himself of a
portion of the vacation, he shall be entitled
to earned leave in such proportion of 30
days, as the number of days of vacation not
taken bears to the full vacation:
Provided that no such leave shall be
admissible to a Government servant not in
permanent employ or quasi-permanent
employ in respect of the first year of his
service.
(c) If, in any year, the Government servant
does not avail himself of any vacation,
earned leave shall be admissible to him in
respect of that year under rule 26.
• For the purpose of this rule, the term
`year’ shall be construed not as meaning a calendar year in which
duty is performed but as meaning
twelve months of actual duty in a
Vacation Department.
• A Government servant entitled to
vacation shall be considered to have
availed himself of a vacation or a
portion of a vacation unless he has
been required by general or special
order of a higher authority to forgo
such vacation or portion of a
vacation:
Provided that if he has been
prevented by such order from
enjoying more than fifteen days of

to have availed himself of no
portion of the vacation.
• When a Government servant serving
in a Vacation Department proceeds
on leave before completing a full
year of duty, the earned leave
admissible to him shall be calculated
not with reference to the vacations
which fall during the period of actual
duty rendered before proceeding on
leave but with reference to the
vacation that falls during the year
commencing from the date on which
he completed the previous year of
duty.
• As per Rule 29(1) the half pay leave

He told the probationers that their responsibilities are tremendous and the complexity of their task is increasing in view of the increasing defence expenditure.

These probationers are presently undergoing training at Headquarters Office of the Defence Account Department i.e. Controller General of Defence Accounts, Delhi Cantt.

He said that railwaymen had decided to go on a strike to press for their demand. "But since all major demands have been accepted, we have deferred the decision of strike till the committee meets again in December. For the time being we have called off the strike."

He said that the cadre restructuring will benefit 3.5 lakh employees of the railways who would be promoted. He said that this was a long-pending demand and a committee was also.
