OFFICE MEMORANDUM
Sub: Clarification to Supplementary Rules 317-B-5 - Classification of Residences, eligibility, date of priority and inter-so seniority for type of General Pool Residential Accommodation.
The undersigned is directed to invite attention to SR 317-B-5 of the Allotment of Government Residences (General Pool in Delhi) Rules, 1963 which provides the classification of residences, eligibility, date of priority and inter-se seniority for various types of General Pool Residential Accommodation (GPRA).

2. - It has also been brought to the notice of the Directorate of Estates that some same batch officers, whose basic pay is more than their counterparts, though both are posted in Delhi under Central Staffing Scheme in various Ministries/Departments but both drawing the same Grade Pay at the Centre. Moreover, some junior officers are drawing more pay in the Pay Band than their seniors. While applying for a particular type of accommodation, a junior officer is placed above the senior officer as he draws more pay in the pay band than his senior officer or same batch officer due to his increase in basic pay acquired from other posting/cadre.
3. The pay of the officers on deputation under Central Staffing Scheme has to be fixed as per the instructions and clarifications issued from time to time by the Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance in this regard.
4. Another issue which has been brought to the notice of the Directorate of Estates is that some officers have included Non Practicing Allowance [NPA] with basic pay while applying for general pool residential accommodation in their applications though Non Practicing Allowance [NPA] and Military Service Pay [MSP] have not been made as part of basic pay for eligibility of general pool residential accommodation after implementation of 6th CPC recommendations.
5. In order to remove the discrepancies mentioned above, it has been decided with the approval of the competent authority that the following will be followed in preparation of unified waiting lists for allotment of various types of general pool residential accommodation under SR 317-B-5:
i) . While deciding inter-se seniority as per sub-clause (c)(iii) of Explanation to SR 317-B-5, the basic pay + grade pay or basic pay, as the case may be, of the officer shall be restricted to the maximum pay in the Pay Band i.e. Basic Pay + Grade Pay or Basic Pay granted to a post in the Central Government for the purpose of allotment of general pool residential accommodation, though the officer draws more than the maximum pay in the pay band of Central Government due to his/her promotion in other posting/cadre.
ii) The Non-Practicing Allowance [NPA] and Military Service Pay [MSP] shall not be taken into account along with basic pay + grade pay or basic pay, as the case may be, for consideration of eligibility of an officer for General Pool Residential Accommodation.

UFBU Circular on the outcome of the Bipartite Talks with IBA on 26.9.2014

UFBU Circular on the outcome of the Bipartite Talks with IBA on 26.9.2014

Bipartite Talks with IBA – UFBU gives strike call

TEXT OF UFBU CIRCULAR

Further to the last round of meeting held on 17th instant, another round of bipartite meeting was held with the IBA today (26.9.2014). IBA was represented by Shri Rajeev Rishi (CMD Central Bank of India), Chairman of the Negotiating Committee along with other members of the Negotiating Committee. UFBU was represented by all its constituent unions.

In today’s meeting there was a detailed discussion on our demand for 100% reimbursement of hospitalisation expenses incurred by the employees/officers and their family members and the group mediclaim scheme offered by the IBA in response thereto. We explained our various apprehensions about the implementation of the scheme and hassle-free reimbursement of claims thereunder. We reiterated that employees/officers should not be required to deal directly with the insurance company or their Third Party Administrators. IBA has agreed and accordingly clarified that even though employees would be covered by the mediclaim scheme, they would continue to submit their claims to the management as hitherto and the reimbursement would be made by the Banks with the improved benefits of the scheme accruing to the employees. IBA also agreed to incorporate the suggestions submitted by the UFBU while finalising the scheme. Hence a broad in-principle consensus was mutually agreed upon and the final scheme would be worked out accordingly on the above lines.

We also raised the following issues during the discussions today:

Pension related matters i.e. 100% DA on pension for pre-Nov. 2002 retirees, improvement in family pension, provision for periodical updation of pension
Introduction of 5 days banking / 5 days working
Regulated working hours for officers

After discussion, IBA informed that they are inclined to favorably consider the demand of 100% DA on pension for pre-Nov. 2002 retirees. IBA further informed that cost aspect on improvement in family pension is being worked out and they would soon take a decision on the same. IBA responded positively on this issue. As regards updation of pension, IBA informed that in view of the high cost involved, it would be difficult to agree to the same. On our insistence, IBA agreed that any viable and affordable proposition from the UFBU in this regard would be examined.

As regards 5 day banking / 5 day working, IBA regretted their inability to accept our demand in the present situation. From UFBU, we insisted on this issue and hence IBA agreed that if a detailed note is submitted to them with the requisite logic and rationale, they would apply their mind afresh on this issue.

On the issue of regulated working hours for officers, IBA was not inclined to agree to the same. However, on drawing their attention to the note submitted by the Officers Organisation, IBA agreed to study the same and react subsequently.

From the IBA, they wanted to know our views and reactions on introduction of cost to company method as well as fixed and variable pay concepts. From UFBU we have reiterated our standpoint that the same are not acceptable to us. IBA also insisted for limiting the wage revision discussions upto scale III officers instead of upto scale VII which was also declined by us.

On the vital issue of improvement in the offer of IBA over 11%, despite our indication that we would be flexible in our demand, depending on improvements in other areas, IBA has conveyed that they are unable to improve their offer unless UFBU scale down further in its demand considering the financial constraints of the banks. We categorically informed IBA that UFBU would be reasonable and flexible in its approach provided the same is reciprocated by the IBA on the issues raised by us and insisted on IBA to improve their offer to take the negotiations forward. However, IBA was adamant in their stand and did not improve their offer and stuck to their earlier offer of 11%. UFBU expressed its unhappiness over the rigid stand of IBA on improvement.

In the UFBU meeting held subsequently, representatives of all the constituent unions expressed their dissatisfaction and condemned the lackadaisical approach and adamant attitude of IBA and unanimously decided to undertake agitational programmes to press our demands and to expedite the settlement. After deliberations, it was decided to observe One day Protest Strike preceded by the following action programmes:

10.10.2014 – BLACK BADGE WEARING
17.10.2014 – COUNTRY WIDE PROTEST DEMONSTRATIONS
Between 18.10.2014 and 31.10.2014 – ONE DAY DHARNA AT ALL STATE CAPITALS (Date shall be decided by the State Unit of UFBU)
COUNTRY WIDE ONE DAY PROTEST STRIKE

It was also decided that the one day protest strike shall be followed by intermittent and relay strikes as well as indefinite strike. Detailed circular on the date of one day protest strike and other agitation programmes will be issued in due course.

Bipartite Talks with IBA on 26.9.2014 – AIBOC

We have received the reaction from many of you on the outcome of the meeting with IBA. Our Confederation expressed its clear view in the UFBU meeting held on 26th September, 2014, that we want quick and sustained agitational programme against the apathy of IBA and the Government on our just and reasonable demands.

We also suggested that our strike call should be for 13th and/or 14th October preceded by programmes like no late sitting, not coming on Sundays and Holidays, Badge wearing, relay hunger strikes, rallies and demonstrations. Undersigned offered the challenge to hold a rally/demonstration on 27th September, 2014 itself at Delhi. However, the above programme only could be decided by the UFBU.

We call upon our members to be in preparedness for any call of the UFBU/organization.

LTC Entitlements of new recruit employees in Central Government services

LTC Entitlements of new recruit employees in Central Government services…

We have some important information collected from various sources for the employees who are newly appointed in Central Government services. The clairifications are given as the type of ‘question and answers’ for easy understanding of CCS LTC Rules…

Question 1. What are the LTC entitlements of a Fresh Recruit?
Answer: Fresh recruits to the Central Government are allowed to travel to their home town along with their families on three occasions in a block of four years and to any place in India on the fourth occasion. This facility shall be available to the fresh recruits only for the first two blocks of four years applicable after joining the Government for the first time.

Question 2. How are the two blocks of four years applied to the Fresh Recruit?
Answer: The first two blocks of four years shall apply with reference to the initial date of joining the Government service even though the Govt. servant may change the job within the Government subsequently. However, as per Rule 7 of CCS (LTC) Rules, 1988, the LTC entitlement of a fresh recruit will be calculated calendar year wise with effect from the date of completion of one year of regular service.

Question 3. Are the LTC blocks of four years in respect of Fresh Recruits same as the regular blocks like 2010-13, 2014-17?
Answer: No. The first two blocks of four years of fresh recruits will be personal to them.
On completion of eight years of LTC, they will be treated at par with other regular LTC beneficiaries as per the prescribed blocks like 2014-17, 2018-21 etc.

Question 4. If a fresh recruit does not avail LTC facility in a particular year, can he/ she avail it in the next year?
No. Carryover of LTC to the next year is not allowed in case of a fresh recruit as he is already entitled to every year LTC. Hence, if a fresh recruit does not avail of the LTC facility in any year, his LTC will deem to have lapsed with the end of that year.

Question 5. How will the LTC entitlements of a Fresh Recruit be exercised after the completion of eight years of service?
Answer: (a) After the completion of eight years of service, when the next LTC cycle of fresh recruit coincides with the beginning of the second two year block (eg. 2016-17) of the running four year block (2014-17), he will be eligible only for ‘Home Town’ LTC if he/she has availed ‘Any Place in India’ LTC in the eighth year. Cases, where the new LTC cycle of fresh recruit coincides with the second year of the running two year block (ex. 2017 of 2016-2017), he will not be eligible for LTC in that year. Refer illustrations 1 & 3 for further explanation.

(b) At the end of the eighth year of LTC, when the new LTC cycle of a fresh recruit
coincides with the beginning of a regular four year block, his entitlement in the
regular block will be exercised as per the usual LTC Rules. Refer illustration 2.

Question 6. How will the LTC entitlement computed in case of a fresh recruit joining the service on 30 December of any year?
Answer: A fresh recruit who joins the Government service on 31 51December of any year, will be eligible for LTC w.e.f. 31 stDecember of next year. Since, 31 51December is the last date of a calendar year, his first occasion of LTC ends with that year.
Hence, he may avail his first Home Town LTC on the last day of that year. From next year onwards he would be eligible for the remaining seven LTCs. Refer illustration 3.

Question 7. How will the entitlements of a fresh recruit be computed who has joined the Govt. service before 01.09.2008? 
Answer: A fresh recruit who has joined Government service before 01.09.2008 (i.e before the introduction of this scheme) and has not completed his first eight years of service as on 01.09.2008 will be eligible for this concession for the remaining
time-period till the completion of first eight years of his/ her service. Refer illustration 4.

Question 8. Can a fresh recruit whose Home Town and Headquarters are same, avail LTC to Home Town?
Answer: No. A fresh recruit whose Home Town and Headquarters are same, cannot avail LTC to Home Town. He may avail LTC to any place in India on the fourth and eighth occasion only. As per Rule 8 of CCS (LTC) Rules, 1988, LTC to Home Town shall be admissible irrespective of the distance between the Headquarters of the Govt. servant and his Home Town which implies that Headquarters and Home Town should be at different places.

Launching of Minimum Pension Scheme (Rs.1000) across 120 locations in India

Labour Minister Shri Tomar announces launch of Minimum Pension Scheme across 120 locations in India

37 Union Ministers to felicitate pensioners on September 30

The Union Minister of Labour & Employment, Steel and Mines, Shri Narendra Singh Tomar announced the launch of a guaranteed minimum pension of Rs 1000 per month under Employees’ Pension Scheme, 1995. Speaking to journalists at a press conference in here today, he said, the Union Government has decided to organize functions in every office of the Employees Provident Fund Organisation spread across 120 locations in the country. It has also been decided that in 37 locations, Union Ministers will preside over the functions and felicitate the pensioners whose pension is getting increased.

Shri Tomar stated that this is being done to interact with the pensioners and to ensure that no eligible person is left out. He expressed confidence that this interaction will help the EPFO to design its pension re-engineering process in a better way. The Secretary, Ministry of Labour and Employment, Smt Gauri Kumar and Central PF Commissioner Shri K.K. Jalan were also present on the occasion.

The Minister said that the long-pending demand for increase in the pension will soon see the light of day. At present, a large number of pensioners are getting only paltry amounts as pension under the scheme. Nearly two-thirds of the pensioners are in receipt of pension of less than 1000 rupees. Thus, this move would benefit approximately 32 lakh out of a total of 49 lakh pensioners who are getting below Rs 1000 as pension, he added.

It is relevant to note that the wage ceiling for coverage under the three schemes of EPFO i.e. Employees Provident Fund Scheme, Employees’ Pension Scheme and Employees’ Deposit Linked Insurance Scheme (EDLI) has also been increased from monthly Rs 6500 to Rs 15000. This increased wage ceiling is expected to bring in an additional 50 lakh employees under the ambit of these social security programmes. The increased wage ceiling will also result into higher benefit under the EDLI from a maximum of Rs.1,30,000 to a maximum of Rs 3,60,000.

In the recent past EPFO has taken a series of measures to bring in greater transparency and efficiency in its functioning. These include the facility for online registration of establishments (OLRE), Online Transfer Claim Portal (OTCP), e-passbook and electronic payment of PF and Pension benefits through NEFT (National Electronic Fund Transfer) and CBS (Core Banking Solution).

Today I met Shri Sadananda Gowda, Hon’ble Minister for Railways at 13:30 hrs. and apprised him about the restlessness prevailing among the Railwaymen on the issue of PLB. He told me that he has already discussed the issue with Hon’ble Finance Minister and written him a D.O. letter on the subject, but it is unfortunate that he has been hospitalized. Even though he will try that PLB issue is resolved by today evening.

In spite of all these efforts, we are getting frantic calls from our affiliated unions, and the situation seems to be very tense throughout the Indian Railways.

As has been advised earlier, our people should be in all preparedness to meet any eventuality in future.
With fraternal greetings!

Karnataka Makes Aadhaar Card Compulsory for Medical Care

Karnataka Makes Aadhaar Card Compulsory for Medical Care

Aadhaar Card was a controversial issue during the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections. When the new government took charge at the Centre, there were talks that the card might be discontinued. But, now that the Government has given a go-ahead to continue the Aadhaar card, the Karnataka state government has decided to give more value to the card. Henceforth, Aadhaar number has been made mandatory for employees of the Karnataka state government who are utilizing the free medical treatment, ‘Jyothi Sanjeevani’.

There are more than 5.6 lakh state government employees in Karnataka, and 40% of them are yet to receive the Aadhaar cards. Employees without Aadhaar cards and their families have been asked to submit details, including photographs, online at the e-Governance Department. These temporary measures are valid only until the employees and their families get their Aadhaar cards. The department of labour welfare has ordered the employees to get their Aadhaar cards as soon as possible. The district collectors have been given the responsibility of conducting special camps to issue Aadhaar cards to state government employees of each district.

According to the press release issued by the Karnataka Government, Aadhaar card shall be treated as identity card for state government employees and their families to avail of free medical care under the Jyothisanjeevani Scheme. Employees will have to register their Aadhaar number, via the salary disbursing officer, with the Human Resource Department – H.R.M.S.

Employees who do not have Aadhaar cards will have to submit photographs of themselves and their family members, along with details, to the concerned officer and get them registered with the H.R.M.S.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Grant of Non-Productivity Linked Bonus (Ad-hoc Bonus) to Central Government Employees for the year 2013-14 – Extension of orders to Autonomous Bodies.

Orders have been issued vide this Ministry’s Office Memorandum No. 7/24/2007 E-III (A) dated 16th September, 2014 authorizing 30 days emoluments as Non-PLB (Ad-hoc bonus) for the accounting year 2013-14 to the eligible Central Government employees not covered by the Productivity Linked Bonus Schemes, subject to terms and conditions laid down therein.

2. The undersigned is directed to say that it has now been decided that the Non-PLB (Ad-hoc) bonus so admissible subject to the terms and conditions laid down in the aforesaid orders, may be extended to the employees of autonomous bodies, partly or fully funded by the Central Government which
(i) follow the pattern of pay structure and emoluments identical to that of the Central Government and (ii) do not have any bonus or ex-gratia or incentive scheme in operation.

Dear Comrades,

Sub: Productivity Linked Bonus to Railwaymen for the year 2013-14

As you are aware, during our earlier meeting with Hon’ble Minister for Railways on 15th September, 2014, in connection with Productivity-Linked Bonus(PLB) to Railwaymen, Hon’ble MR had assured us that, there would not be any reduction in the PLB and the same would be paid before “Durga Pooja”.

Since Hon’ble Prime Minister of India is going to leave for the US, there is every likelihood of delay in the payment of PLB, which is not tolerable to us.

Though, we are still pursing the matter with the Railway Board, Hon’ble MR and MoSR, but in case PLB is not paid to Railwaymen before “Durga Pooja”, we should be in all preparedness for show-down.
Comradely yours,

Ministry of Defence decided to start a nationwide cleanliness mission called “Clean Cantonments” from 25 Sept 2014

Clean Cantonments : The mission will comprise a collective and sustained effort to clean our homes, workplaces, streets, roads, pavements, schools, hospitals, markets and all other public places within our purview and keeping them clean for all times to come.

MoD to Launch “Clean Cantonments” Drive from Tomorrow

Responding to the Prime Minister’s clarion call to the people of India to realize Mahatma Gandhi’s dream of “Swachh Bharat” (Clean India) by 2nd October 2019 Ministry of Defence has decided to undertake an intensive national cleanliness campaign w.e.f 25th September 2014.

During this five year cleanliness plan it has been decided that on 2nd October 2014 “Swachh Shapath” (pledge) will be administered to all in government offices and public functions/events and cleanliness drive led by senior officers will be undertaken in all government and public offices. Besides that a variety of activities such as public marches, marathons, debates, street plays, music and essay competitions among the students and other community activities will be organized to focus public attention on this campaign and on the need for maintaining cleanliness on a sustained basis.

To begin with Ministry of Defence has decided to start a nationwide cleanliness mission called “Clean Cantonments” w.e.f 25 Sept 2014. The mission will comprise a collective and sustained effort to clean our homes, workplaces, streets, roads, pavements, schools, hospitals, markets and all other public places within our purview and keeping them clean for all times to come. For this Directorate General Defence Estates (DGDE), Ministry of Defence has directed all Defence Estate Officers and Cantonment Boards to undertake “Swachh Shapath” drive on 2nd October 2014 involving all officers and staffs in Directorates as well as offices of DEO’s. The DGDE has accordingly prepared an action plan for each Command Directorate and offices under it for a period of five years where a systemic cleanliness drive will be undertaken by a Corps of Swachh Bharat Volunteers. This core of volunteers will be tasked to create mass awareness about how to develop clean habits and keep our surroundings neat and clean. Since Clean India-Clean Cantonments campaign cannot be successful without public participation, the action plan for the same has devised a number of steps to make it happen in a coordinated manner. The steps/activities suggested by the action plan for a Clean India are as follows:-

· Door-to-door garbage collection and its segregation into biodegradable and non-biodegradable waste.
· Management of trenching grounds as per the MSW Rules, 2000.
· Proper cleaning of public places and introduction of mechanical cleaning devices to keep roads, streets and pavements spick and span.
· Daily clearance of dustbins and cleaning of surrounding areas.
· Conversion of surface drainage system into an underground drainage system connected to a Sewerage Treatment Plant. Apart from giving a cleaner look, this measure will ensure that our water bodies are protected against pollution.
· Establishment of Water Treatment Plant, wherever drinking water is supplied by the Cantonment Board.
· Mechanical cleaning of septic tanks, nullahs, underground drainage, public toilets and urinals so that no safai karamchari has to do such cleaning manually.
· Spreading the message of Clean India through school children by incorporating proper reading material in the curriculum. One way of reaching parents is through their children. Children should also be told about the importance of keeping water bodies clean.
· Developing the disseminating Cleanliness Logos and Messages which remind people about the importance of keeping their environment clean.
· Enhanced emphasis on planting trees and protecting existing trees. Species of plants which act as bio-filters should be selected for plantation in trenching grounds and other areas receiving sewage/sewerage.
· Regular field visits by officers to see that areas are kept clean. With increase of office/paperwork, officers have become increasingly desk-bound. They should change this habit and must take rounds of at least one area every day.
· Introduction of incentives, like, cleanest Street/Mohalla/Area to motivate people and to participate in the cleanliness drive competitively.
· Effective use of mass media for spreading the Swachh Bharat campaign as well as for mobilizing support therefore.
To manage and monitor the progress of this drive in an organized manner a high level committee under the leadership of Director General Defence Estates has been constituted where all Principal Directors, CEO’s and Defence Estate Officers (DEO’s) of the department have been retained as members.

7th Pay Commission has sought information on the parity of pay scales manifests in posts of a similar nature

Seventh Pay Commission has sought information on the parity of pay scales manifests in posts of a similar nature

MEENA AGARWAL
SECRETARY
GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
SEVENTH CENTRAL PAY COMMISSION
7CPC/99/RR/2014/1
Dated: 8th September, 2014
Dear

The 7th Central Pay Commission has been receiving a number of memoranda, representations from associations/federations as well as individual cadres on pay and related issues. As part of its working, the Commission is also hearing various groups of employees both in Delhi and during its visits outside Delhi.

2. One of the major issues raised before the Commission centres on the subject of parity. One aspect of parity manifests in how posts of a similar nature are placed. Certain cadres/category of employees have, in their deposition before the Commission, stated that there are cases when identical or similarly placed cadres/categories of employees in different Ministries/Departments are placed differentially in terms of pay and promotional prospects.

3. With a view to examining and addressing this aspect of parity amongst apparently similarly placed cadres/posts, the Commission has devised a template to be filled in for posts being administered by your Department. The template seeks to elicit information that would be readily available in the Recruitment Rules for the concerned post(s)/cadres. In case your Department only operates posts involving common cadres like the Central Secretariat Service (CSS), Central Secretariat Stenographers Service (CSSS), Central Secretariat Clerical Service (CSCS), a NIL report may kindly be furnished to the Commission.

4. Since the Work of the Commission is time bound may I request that information as sought is furnished by 25 September 2014. Perhaps a copy of the RRs themselves could be sent as advance information.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Sir,

Sub:- Productivity Linked Bonus payment – reg.

Pressure mounted from railway employees of different zones that the PL Bonus should be announced and paid in cash to enable them to make purchases for celebrating Dussehra.

NFIR, therefore, requests to kindly arrange to issue suitable instructions for payment of P.L. Bonus in cash as a special case.

Aadhaar Enabled Biometric Attendance System (AEBAS) – New attendance system for central government employees by month-end

Aadhaar Enabled Biometric Attendance System (AEBAS) – New attendance system for central government employees by month-end

Aadhar-based biometric attendance for central government employees by month-end

NEW DELHI: Aadhaar-based biometric attendance systems for central government employees will be fully operational by the end of this month. “The biometric attendance system for central employees will be fully functional by the end of this month,” Information Technology Secretary Ram Sevak Sharma told PTI.

According to Sharma, the attendance of the employees can be tracked through a website, attendence.gov.in, which would be fully operational by the month-end. The website is expected to bring more transparency as it would provide and update information about central government employees on real-time basis.

The attendance web portal will use the information entered in the biometric devices and will act as a centralised management information system (MIS) for attendance. Under the new attendance system, the employees would be able to mark their attendance using biometric reading devices in various government offices.
It will facilitate employees mark their attendance at other central offices also which would help the government to track their movements. According to the information available on the attendance web portal, as many as 163 central government organisations have registered themselves for the same.
At present, as many as 1,816 biometric attendance devices are operational in various central government offices. There are around 43,000 registered users (employees), out of which 18,262 are Aadhaar verified.

Central Government Employees Launch Countrywide Stir Demanding 7th Pay Commission Interim Relief

Central Government Employees Launch Countrywide Stir Demanding 7th Pay Commission Interim Relief

The Central Government employees are going to launch nationwide protests, stressing that their 11-point demands, including interim relief for the 7th Pay Commission, be granted.

Duraipandian, the General Secretary of Central Government Employees Federation, said, whenever the Pay Commission is constituted, interim reliefs are announced. But this time, when the 7th Pay Commission was announced, we weren’t given interim relief.

We want the new pension scheme to be revoked and old pension scheme to be reinstated. Outsourcing of Central Government jobs to private firms must stop. And, we want the more than 6 lakh vacancies in various central government agencies, like the Railways, Income Tax Departments, to be filled up.

We are going to launch nationwide Dharna protests (except Jammu and Kashmir), demanding that these 11 conditions be fulfilled.

Recruitment to non-gazetted posts on the railways – Adherence to prescribed qualification in recruitment from open market regarding

Sub: Recruitment to non-gazetted posts on the railways – Adherence to prescribed qualification in recruitment from open market regarding.

Attention is invited to instructions contained in Board’s letter of even number dated 29/6/2006 which debar acceptance of allied/related qualification in lieu of the qualification prescribed by this Ministry and stipulates that candidate in possession of the qualification possessed in line with the extant instructions may only be considered for employment on the railways.

The above instructions were issued to streamline the already perturbed system of open market recruitment, wherein, candidates with similar qualification were being treated differently by different recruiting agencies leading to the matter open for litigation.

However, over a period of time it has been observed that recruiting agencies are seeking clarification from this Ministry on following accounts

(i) recognition of institutions;
(ii) recognition of courses from regulatory bodies, if any, or other nodal bodies;
(iii) whether the course is offered through regular/part-time/distance learning/Membership of Association;
(iv) duration of course; and
(v) Equivalence.
Referring each and every issue to the nodal Departments/Ministries results in inordinate delay in finalizing candidature of candidates which further results in more complications viz. expiry of panels, candidates taking legal recourse etc.

Taking above things into consideration, instructions contained in letter dated 29/6/2006 ibid have been reviewed and it has been decided by the Board that empanelled candidates in possession of prescribed qualification from institutions run by Central Government/State Government/Bodies enacted by Act of Parliament or State Legislatures or recognized by Central Government/State GovernmentIBodies enacted by Act of Parliament or State Legislatures be allowed to join without further going into the issue of recognition. Validity or otherwise, of such recognition, if required, will be confirmed by the concerned recruiting agency, contacting directly to the BoardlUniversity or the Council as the case may be.

These guidelines do not affect in any way the instructions circulated vide letter No.E(NG)II12010IRR-l/17 dated 08/12/2011.

Cases decided otherwise in the past need not be re-opened.

Please acknowledge receipt.
