Procedures for Resignation from Central Government Services – Ministry of Home Affairs

Procedures for Resignation from Central Government Services – Ministry of Home Affairs

There is available only one order about the procedures for resigning from Central Government Services, which was issued on 6th May 1958 by the Ministry of Home Affairs. After that no orders will be issued by the Ministry. We have reproduced the content of the Office Memorandum and given below for your ready reference…

Copy of O.M. No.39/6/57-Ests.(A) dated the 6th May, 1958 from Shri.P.Sitaraman, Deputy Secretary to the Government of India, Ministry of Home Affairs, New Delhi to all Ministries of the Government of India etc. etc.
Subject:-  Resignation from service-Procedure in respect of -
Question have been raised from time to time regarding the authority competent to accept a resignation, the circumstances under which resignation should be accepted, the date when a resignation becomes effective, and the authority competent to permit a Government servant to withdraw a resignation which he has already tendered. The following instructions are, therefore, issued for information and guidance of all Ministries:-

(a) Authority competent to accept resignation :-
The appointing authority in respect of the service or post in question is the authority competent to accept the resignation of the Government servant.

(b) Circumstances under which resignation should be accepted:-  It is not in the interest of Government to retain an unwilling officers in service. The general rule, therefore, is that a resignation from service should be accepted except in the circumstance indicated below:-
(i) Where the officer concerned is engaged on work of importance and it would take time to make alternative arrangements for filling the post, the resignation should not be accepted straightaway, but only when alternative arrangement for filling the post have been made.
(ii) Where a Government servant who is under suspension submits a resignation, the competent authority should examine, with reference to the merit of the disciplinary case pending against the Government servant, whether it would be in the public interest to accept the resignation. Normally, as officers are placed under suspension only in cases of grave delinquency, it would not be correct to accept a resignation from an officer under suspension. Exceptions to this rule would be where the alleged offences do not involve moral turpitude or where the quantum of evidence against the accused officer is not strong enough to justify the assumption that the departmental proceedings were continued, the office would be removed or dismissed from service, or here the departmental proceedings are likely to be so protract ant that it would be cheaper to the public exchequer to accept the resignation.
(c) Date when a resignation becomes effective :-
The competent authority should decide the date with effect from which the resignation should become effective. In cases covered by (b) (i) above the date should be that with effect from which alternative arrangements can be made for filing the post. Where an officer is on leave, the competent authority should decide whether he will accept the resignation with immediate effect or with effect from the date following the termination of the leave. Where a period of notice is prescribed which a Government servant should give when he wishes to resign from service, the competent authority may decide to count the period of leave towards the notice period. In other cases also, it is open to the competent authority to decide whether the resignation should become effective immediately or with effect from some prospective date. In the latter cases, the date should be specified.

(d) Authority competent to permit withdrawal of resignation :-
A resignation becomes effective when it is accepted and the officer is relieved of his duties. Where a resignation has not become effective and the officer wishes to withdraw it, it is open to the authority which accepted the resignation to refuse the request for such effective the officer is no longer in Government service and acceptance of the request for withdrawal of resignation would amount to reemploying him in service after condoning the period of break. As this would involve financial commitments, concurrence of the Ministry of Finance should be obtained before a request for withdrawal of resignation which has already become effective is accepted.

Fixation of pay on functional promotions where feeder and promotional posts have been placed in the same Pay Band and Grade Pay: Railway Board Clarification
 Railway Services
(Revised Pay) Rules, 2008- Clarification regarding fixation of pay under rule 13 on functional promotions in various situations where feeder and promotional posts have been placed in the same Pay Band and Grade Pay and where merger is not feasible.

(As per mailing list)

Subject: Railway Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008- Clarification regarding fixation of pay under rule 13 on functional promotions in various situations where feeder and promotional posts have been placed in the same Pay Band and Grade Pay and where merger is not feasible.

Both the Federations i.e. AIRF and NFIR have taken up the issue in various fora regarding admissibility of notional increment as per Rule 13 (1) of the Railway Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008 in the situations of promotions in identical revised pay structure (viz. same Grade Pay and Pay Band ) consequent upon implementation of recommendations of Sixth Central Pay Commission.

2. Prior to notification of RS (RP) Rules, 2008 (effective from 1.1.2006), fixation of pay in the cases of promotion etc. was governed by the provisions of Railway Fundamental Rules its contained in Indian Railway Establishment Code Vol. II viz. Rule 1313 (FR22)(I)(a)(1) read with sub Rule (III) thereof. Consequent upon deliberations with recognized staff Federations at different fora and consultation with Ministry of Finance / DOPT, fixation of pay under Rule 1313 (FR22(I)(a)( 1)R-II was extended in certain  situations of promotion from one post to another in identical pay scale as an exception to general rules.

3. Fixation of pay on promotion in revised pay structure on or after 1.1.2006 is governed by Rule 13 of Railway Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008. As a consequence of implementation of recommendations of Sixth Central Pay Commission, various pre-revised scales have been merged and got replaced by same revised pay structure (same Pay Band and Grade Pay) leading to merger of corresponding posts as indicated in the foot notes of Board’s letter No. PC VI/I/RSRP/1 dt. 11.9.2008 (as further supplemented/modified from time to time). However, there are certain specific situations on the Railways wherein it has not been feasible to merge the feeder and promotional posts placed in same revised pay structure (same Pay Band and Grade Pay) and such categories continue to be operated as separate categories. Further, these posts are part of normal promotional hierarchy of the employee ( i.e. other than the situations arising than to movement of the employee to another cadre in same revised pay structure through option), movement involves assumption of duties and responsibilities of greater importance and benefit of promotional increment was available even prior to implementation of revised pay structure vide RS(RP) Rules, 2008.

4. Various situations of the nature as above have been under examination in consultation with Ministry of Finance and Department of Personnel and Training and accordingly President is pleased to decide that the benefit of promotional pay fixation as per the provisions of Rule 13(i) of RS(RP) Rules, 2008 may be extended in the following situations of promotion from one post to another in same revised pay structure effective from 1.1.2006 onwards:

S.No.
Feeder Category
Promotional category
Revised Pay structure (Pay Band /Grade Pay)
1.
Chief Matron
Assistant Nursing Officer
PB3 GP Rs.5400
2.
Sr. Technician
Jr. Engineer
PB2 GP Rs.4200
3.

(iii) Passenger Guard
(iii) Mail/Express Guard
PB-2 GP Rs. 4200
4.
Sr.P.W. Supervisor
Jr. Engineer
PB2 GP Rs.4200

*All regular posts of Sr. Permanent Way Supervisors in PB-2, Grade pay Rs. 4200 stand merged w.e.f. 03.07.2013 with the cadre of Junior Engineer (P.Way) in terms of Boards letter No.PC-III/2012/FE-II/2 dated 03/07/2013.

4.1 The staff affected by the decision as above may submit the option, within a period of three months from the date of issue of these orders, to have their pay re-fixed from the date of promotion as above or from the date of next increment in the feeder category, as per the methodology illustrated Vide clarification 2 contained in Board’s letter No. PCVI/2008/I/RSRP/1 dr. 25.9 2008 (S.No. PC VI/22; RRF No 132/2008).

10% DA approval expected to be announced last day by Cabinet

10% DA approval expected to be announced last day by Cabinet

As per information available with us, cabinet might consider and approve 10% D.A. for central employees and pensioners with effect from 01.07.2013 last day (12.09.2013). With this possible hike, total D.A. payable will reach 90% of basic pay. Meanwhile, all trade unions are mounting pressure on the Govt. to merge 50% of Dearness Allowance with basic pay even there is no recommendation of merger in the sixth pay commission report. The unions threatened to resort to strike if the demand is not fulfilled. Will the Govt. succumb to this pressure in the election year ? That is the million dollar question.
