Office Memorandum

Subject: Review of the Recruitment Rules/Service Rules (RRs/SRs) - reg.

DOPT vide OM AB-14017/14/2018-Estt.(RR) dated 31.12.2010 issued instructions laying down guidelines for framing/ amendment/relaxation of Recruitment Rules. Para 3.1.5 Of the guidelines provide that the recruitment/ rules should be reviewed once in 5 years with a view effecting such change as are necessary to bring them in conformity with the changed position, including additions to or reductions in the strength of the lower and higher-level posts. Subsequently, this Division vide OM No. AB-14017/61/2008-Estt.(RR) dated 25.03.2014 re-iterated these instructions.

2. However, it has come to the notice of this Department that many Ministries/Departments are not undertaking the aforesaid exercise as stipulated. Resultantly, recruitment/promotion of officers/ employees are continued to be made on the basis of RRs which are not updated and continued to reflect old positions. It is a matter of concern that the decisions taken by the Government on the basis of pay Commission Recommendations, Court directions, Expert Committee Recommendations etc remain un-reflected in the relevant RRs/SRs

3. Since RRs are statutory in nature and all promotions/appointments are made as the provisions in the RRs/SRs, it is imperative that the RRs/SRs are updated in accordance with DoP&T instructions issued from time to lime. In view of this, Ministries/Departments are impressed upon to immediately undertake the exercise for review Of existing RRs/SRs which have not been amended in the last five years and intimate this Department about the outcome of the exercise so undertaken.

Railway: Cases of promotion taking place in the pre-revised pay structure between 01-01-2006 and the date of notification of RS(RP)Rules, 2008 and the subsequent merger of the pre-revised pay scales of the promotional and the feeder posts in a common Grade fixation of pay clarifications

Railway - Cases of promotion taking place in the pre-revised pay structure between 01-01-2006 and the date of notification of RS(RP)Rules, 2008

Sub: Cases of promotion taking place in the pre-revised pay structure between 01-01-2006 and the date of notification of RS (RP) Rules, 2008 and the subsequent merger of the pre-revised pay scales of the promotional and the feeder posts in a common Grade fixation of pay clarifications.

Ref: Railway Board's letter No.PC-VI/2015/IC/1 dated 08-04-2016(RBE No.33/2016)Circulating Ministry of Finance's O.M.No.F-2-1/2015-E.III(A) dated 16-10-2015

Attention is invited to Board's letter dated 08-04-2016 (RBE No.33/2016) by which instructions contained in M/o Finance's OM dated 16-10-2015 have been applied mutatis mutandis on Indian Railways. In the M/o Finance's OM dated 16-10-2015, the cut-off date for applicability of instructions contained has been mentioned as 29-08-2008 at one place and 29-09-2008 at another place of para 5 of the said OM. This seems to have caused confusion in some Railway/Units and some requests for clarifications have been made to Board's office on the issue.

2. The date of notification of CCS (RP) Rules,2008 was 29-08-2008 and therefore, as per M/O Finance OM dated 16-10-2015, the pay fixation benefit was available in cases of promotion occurring between 01-01-2006 till 29-08-2008 where feeder and promotional grades were subsequently merged in 6th CPC. The date 29-09-2008 mentioned in para 5 of M/o Finance's OM NO.F-2-1/2015-E.III(A) dated 16-10-2015 is therefore evidently a typographical error which should logically be read as 29-08-2008. In any case, the cut -off date for applicability of provisions contained in letter dated 08-04-2016 (RBE NO.33/2016) in context of Railway employees is 04-09-2008 (i.e dated of notification of RS(RP)Rules,2008) as has already been explicitly clarified by Ministry Of Finance vide their OM No.530744/E III-A/2017 dated 20-11-2017 to this office. It was based on this clarification that Board's letter No.PC-VI/2015/IC/1 (RBE No.196/2017) was issued on 29-12-2017.
