Reservation to OBCs


Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions

Reservation to OBCs

Posted On: 07 FEB 2018 1:15PM by PIB Delhi

No centralized data regarding number of candidates belonging to the Other Backward Castes stated to have been deprived of reservation benefit for appointment to posts under Central Government due to their coming under creamy layer is maintained. There is no reservation in promotion for Other Backward Classes.

At present, there is no proposal under consideration to determine creamy layer for the candidates of general category. The 9 Judge Constitutional Bench of Supreme Court in the case of Indra Sawhney has inter-alia held that "a backward class cannot be determined only and exclusively with reference to economic criterion. It may be a consideration or basis along with and in addition to social backwardness, but it can never be the sole criterion".

This was stated by the Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) of the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Atomic Dr Jitendra Singh in a written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha today.

Posted On: 07 FEB 2018 1:17PM by PIB Delhi

A Ministry or Department may procure certain non- consulting services in the interest of economy and efficiency and prescribe detailed instructions and procedures for this purpose without, however, contravening the basic guidelines provided in rule 199 to 206 of "General Financial Rules 2017" (GFR 2017). As each Ministry/Department is competent to procure services at their level to meet seasonal or short-term requirements, the centralised data is not maintained in this regard.

There are detailed procedures laid down for procurement of such non-consulting services including e-procurement in Chapter 6 of the GFR 2017 and the "Manual for Procurement of Consultancy & Other Services, 2017".  Ministries are competent to decide the mode depending on the nature of work, nature of competency required etc. Any deviation or violation can be dealt by the Ministry appropriately. The wages for the persons engaged on contract/outsourcing cannot be less than the minimum wage fixed/notified by the concerned State Government.

The Government posts are regularly filled up in accordance with the recruitment rules. Each Ministry/Department is responsible for appointment of regular employees against vacant posts after completing all procedural formalities. The centralised data of vacancies and backlog vacancies is not maintained.

This was stated by the Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) of the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, AtomicDr Jitendra Singh in a written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha today

Maximum Age Limit in case of Appointment by Deputation - Dopt


Maximum Age Limit in case of Appointment by Deputation - Dopt

AB-14017/11/2017-Estt.(RR)

Ministry of Personnel, P.G. & Pensions

Estt.(RR)
North Block, New Delhi
Date: 5th February, 2018
Office Memorandum

Sub:- Maximum age limit in case of appointment by deputation / deputation (including short term contract)

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department's OM No. AB-14017/48/92-Estt (RR) dated 17th November, 1992 on the subject mentioned above. The Recruitment Rules in respect of a number of posts provide for appointment by the method of deputation / deputation (including short term contract). As per existing instructions, the maximum age limit for appointment on deputation / deputation (including short term contract) is ‘not exceeding fifty six years on the closing date of receipt of application. In recent past, this Department has received several requests for revision of the maximum age limit for appointment on deputation/deputation (including short term contract) basis

2. The matter has, therefore, been examined in consultation with the Union Public Service Commission. Keeping in view the fact that gaining experience in analogous posts at SAG and above levels take time, the limited number of officers available at these levels and to tap the talent/service of officers who have rich domain experience, it has been decided that the following age limit shall be prescribed for appointment on deputation / deputation (including short term contract) basis:-
(i) For posts in the SAG level and above (i.e. Level-14 of the Pay Matrix and above):-
'Not exceeding fifty eight years' on the closing date of receipt of application.
(ii) For posts below the SAG level (below Level-14 of the Pay Matrix):-
'Not exceeding fifty six years' on the closing date of receipt of application.
3. The Administrative Ministries are requested to take necessary action for amendment of Recruitment Rules/Service Rules to incorporate the revised age limit for deputation/deputation (including short term contract) for posts of the level of SAG and above.
