RESOLUTION

The 20th March 2002

Subject –         Seniority of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes Government servants on promotion by virtue of rule of reservation/roster.

            The principle of fixation of inter se seniority of General, Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe Government servants in the promotional posts has engaged the attention of the Government for sometime past. Earlier Government in their Resolution No. 39734 (e)-Gen., dated the 2nd November 2000 has adopted the principle of fixation of seniority between General, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes candidates in the promotional posts in the State Civil Services/posts as an interim measure in pursuance of the guidelines contained in Office Memorandum No. 20011/1/96-Esst. (D), dated the 30th January 1997 and No. 20011/2/97-Estt. (D), dated the 21st March 1997 of the Government of India, Ministry of Personnel, P. G. and Pensions (Department of Personnel and Training). Meanwhile the Government of India, Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievance and Pension (Department of Personnel and Training) in their Office Memorandum No. 20011/1/2001-Estt. (D), dated the 21st January 2002 have decided to negate the effects of the Office Memorandum, dated the 30th January 1997 and 21st March 1997 after amending Article 16 (4-A) of the constitution right from the date of its inclusion in the constitution, i.e., 17th June 1995 with a view to allowing the Government servants belonging to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes to retain their seniority in the case of promotion by virtue of rule of reservation.

            2. In the above premises, the Government after careful consideration, have been pleased to decide to withdraw the G. A. Department Resolution No. 39734 (e),-Gen., dated the 2nd November 2000 along with the previous Resolution No. 21260-Gen., dated the 16th June 2000 and Office Order No. 30083-Gen., dated the 27th July 2000 on the subject. The guidelines issued by the Government of India, Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension (Department of Personnel and Training) in their Office Memorandum No. 20011/1/2001-Estt. (D), dated the 21st January 2002 (Copy enclosed) shall be followed in letter and spirit for fixation of seniority of SC/ST Government servants on promotion by virtue of rules of reservation in the State Civil Services/Posts. In other words, consequent upon withdrawal of DOPT O. M. No. 20011-1/1996-Estt. (D), dated the 30th January 1997, read with DOPT. O. M. No. 20011/2/1997-Estt. (D), dated the 21st March 1997, the catch up principle enunciated therein and adopted by the State Government in G. A. Department Resolution No. 39734, dated the 2nd November 2000 shall not be followed any longer. The Government servants belonging to S.Cs./S.Ts. shall retain their seniority in the case of promotion by virtue of rule of reservation. On the other hand the Government servants belonging to General/O. B. C. category promoted later will be placed junior to the S.C./S.T. government servants promoted earlier even though by virtue of the rule of reservation.

            3. All the Departments of Government are requested to implement the above decision and issue necessary instructions to all the Heads of Departments, Public Sector Undertakings and other Appointing Authorities under their administrative control for taking immediate action accordingly.

            4. This has been concurred in by the Law Department in their U. O. R. No. 363-L., dated the 2nd March 2002.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject – Seniority of SC/ST Government servants on promotion by virtue of rule of reservation/roster.

            The seniority of a person appointed to a post is determined according to the general principle 5 (i) contained in MHA O. M. No. 9-11/55-RPS., dated the 22nd December 1959 and Para. 2.2 in DOPT O. M. No. 2211-7/86/Estt. (D), dated the 3rd July 1986 read with DOPT O. M. No. 20011-5/90-Estt. (D), dated the 4th November 1992 (copy enclosed). Seniority of such person is determined by the order of merit indicated at the time of initial appointment and seniority of persons promoted to various grades is determined in the order of selection for such promotion. Thus, as per the aforementioned instructions persons appointed through an earlier selection would enbloc be senior to those promoted through subsequent slection.

            2. This position was reviewed subsequent to the Judgement of the Supreme Court, dated the 10th October 1995 in the case of Union of India Vs. Virpal Singh Chauhan, etc. [JT 1995 (7) SC 231] and it was decided vide DOPT O. M. No. 20011-1/96-Estt. (D), dated the 30th January 1997, to modify the then existing policy by addition of the proviso to general principle 5 (i) contained in MHA (Now DOPT) O. M. No. 9-11/55-RPS, dated the 22nd December 1959 and Para. 2.2 in DOPT O. M. No. 22011-7/786-Estt. (D), dated the 3rd July 1986, which stipulated that if a candidate belonging to the Scheduled Caste or the Scheduled Tribe is promoted to an immediate higher post/grade against a reserved vacancy earlier than his senior general/OBC candidates who is promoted later to the said immediate higher post/grade, the general/OBC candidate will regain his seniority over such earlier promoted candidate of the Scheduled Caste and the Scheduled Tribe in the immediate higher post/grade.

            3. The Government have now decided to negate the effects of the DOPT O. M., dated the 30th January 1997 by amending Article 16 (4-A) of the Constitution right from the date of its inclusion in the Constitution i.e. the 17th June 1995 with a view to allow the Government servants belonging to SCs/Sts. to retain the seniority in the case of promotion by virtue of rule of reservation. In other words, the candidates belonging to general/OBC category promoted later will be placed junior to the SC/ST Government servants promoted earlier even though by virtue of the rule of reservation.

            4. Therefore in pursuance of the aforementioned Constitution (Eighty-fifth) Amendment Act, 2001, it has been decided as follows :

(i) (a)    SC/ST Government servants shall, on their promotion by virtue of rule of reservation/roster, be entitled to consequential seniority also; and

(b)               the above decision shall be effective from the 17th June 1995

(ii)                The instructions contained in DOPT O. M. No. 20011-1/96-Estt. (D), dated the 30th January 1997 as well as the clarifications contained in DOPT O. M. No. 20011-2/97-Estt. (D), dated the 21st March 1997 shall stand withdrawn w.e.f. the 30th January 1997 itself.

(iii)               Seniority of Government servants determined in the light of O. M., dated the 30th January 1997 shall be revised as if that O. M. was never issued.

(iv) (a)  On the basis of the revised seniority, consequential benefits like promotion, pay, pension, etc. should be allowed to the concerned SC/ST Government servants (but without arrears by applying principle of ‘no work no pay’).

(b)               For this purpose, senior SC/ST Government servants may be granted promotion with effect from the date of promotion of their immediate junior general/OBC Government servants.

(c)               Such promotion of SC/ST Government servant may be ordered with the approval of Appointing Authority of the post to which the Government servant is to be promoted at each level after following normal procedure of DPC (including consultation with UPSC).

(d)               Except seniority other consequential benefits like promotion, pay, etc. (including retrial benefits in respects of those who have already retired) allowed to general/OBC Government servant by virtue of implementation of O. M., dated the 30th January 1997 and/or in pursuance of the directions of CAT/Court should be protected as personal to them.

5. All Ministries/Departments are requested to bring the above decisions to the notice of all concerned for guidance and compliance. Necessary action to implement the decisions contained in Para. (iii) above may be completed within three months from the date of issue of these instructions and necessary action to implement the decision at Para. (iv) above may be completed within 6 months from the date of issue of these instructions.

Subject –         Action against Government servants to be taken if they are later found ineligible or unqualified for their initial recruitment.

            It has been brought to the notice of Government that in some cases Government servants are appointed to different posts/services without possessing the requisite qualifications prescribed for the said post by furnishing false information or producing false certificate.

            2. A question has now arisen as to whether a Government servant can be discharged from service where it is discovered later that the Government servant was not qualified or eligible for his initial recruitment in service. the Supreme Court in its judgement in the District Collector, Vizianagaram Vs. M. Tripura Sundari Devi [1990 (4) SLR 237] went into this issue and observed as under :-

            “It must further be realized by all concerned that when an advertisement mentions a particular qualification and an appointment is made in disregard of the same, it is not a matter only between the appointing authority and the appointee concerned, the aggrieved are all those who had similar or better qualifications them the appointee or appointees but who had not applied for the post because they did not possess the qualifications mentioned in the advertisement. It amounts to a fraud on public to appoint a person with inferior qualifications in such circumstances unless it is clearly stated that the qualifications are relaxable. No Court should be a party to the perpetuation of the fraudulent practice.”

            3. Government after careful examination and in consultation with the Law Department have decided that whenever it is found that a Government servant, who was not qualified or eligible in terms of the recruitment rules, etc. for initial recruitment in service or had furnished false information or produced a false certificate in order to secure appointment, he should not be retained in service. If he is a probationer or a temporary Govt. servant, he should be discharged or his services should be terminated. If he has become a permanent Government servant, an inquiry as prescribed under Rule 15 of O. C. S. (C. C. & A.) Rules, 1962 may be conducted and if the charges are proved, the Government servant should be removed or dismissed form service. In no circumstances should any other penalty be imposed.

            4. Such discharge, termination, removal or dismissal from service would, however, be without prejudice to the right of the Government to prosecute such Government servants.

            5. All Departments/Heads of Departments/Collectors are requested to bring the above to the notice of all concerned for information and necessary action.

            The receipt of the letter may kindly be acknowledged.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

The 3rd August 1999

Subject – Large scale transfer of Group ‘C’ officers.

            The undersigned is directed to say that instance of large scale transfers, in some Departments of Group ‘C’ Officers of Government, thereby causing serious difficulties, both financial and physical to the low paid employees, have come to the notice of the Government. Analysis of some of these cases reveal that almost all such transfers have been ordered in the Administrative Departments and that the functions of the appointing authority or of the delegated Authorities have been taken over by the Departments of government. Such upward withdrawal of powers has resulted in longer chains of transfer, often not warranted by administrative expediency and sometime involving employees who have not even served a year at the previous station. Such transfers done in the Administrative Departments give raise to certain complications like :-

(a)               loss of the line of command because the transferred employee comes to believe that he (she) can easily bypass the controlling authority in the field formation, and

(b)               a longer chain of transfers in which a number of unwilling or suffering employees go on leave thereby leaving some posts vacant for long periods, and

(c)               the dust thrown up by large scale transfers does not settle down for months together and employees throng the Secretariat corridors to modify/cancel their postings, and

(d)               the bills on account of their Transfer Travelling Allowance go on mounting and remain unpaid for years together for want of adequate allotment under T. A. head and when paid, it makes a heavy burden on the budget.

All Departments are therefore, impressed upon that the existing delegation of powers in respect of transfers and postings exercisable by authorities as per Orissa Service Code, read with Appendix I thereof, must be respected. Departments which have not made delegation should work out the same. The number of functionaries transferred should be confined to the barest minimum. No transfer should take place after 15th August 1999 ordinarily. Any deviation from these instructions without prior approval of the Chief Minister would be seriously viewed.
