Subject : Issue of revised Recruitment Rules of PS Gr. B Cadre and reduce share of General Line officials from 6% to 3%…reg

Respected Madam, 
           
Your kind attention is invited to this Association’s letter of even number dated 4/7/2011 vide which a detailed proposal regarding share of GL officials and IP Line officials for appearing in the LDCE was submitted to Directorate.  But I am sorry to point out that, in-spite of reminders dated 15/7/2013, 19/11/2013, 6/1/2014, 17/4/2014, 16/5/2014, 21/6/2014 and 29/8/2014 no positive steps have been taken by Department to resolve this long pending vital issue.

Directorate vide memo No. 4-26/2009-SPB-II dated 27th August 2014 has finalized and circulated revised Recruitment Rules of HSG-I in Post Offices and RMS offices. Actually, as per the clause 3.1.5 of DoPT OM No. AB-14017/48/2010-Estt (RR) dated 31st December 2010 “The Recruitment Rules should be reviewed once in 5 years with a view to effecting such changes as are necessary to bring them in conformity with the changed position, including additions to or reduction in the strength of the lower and higher level posts”.

Now, it is learnt that Department has submitted the proposal of issue of revised RRs of PS Gr. B cadre to Nodal Ministry for approval.

It is therefore requested to get the approval of Nodal Ministry at the earliest, so that Department can hold pending LDCEs for the promotion to the cadre of PS Gr. B and Sr. Postmaster’s Examination as per the revised recruitment rules only.

With profound regards,                                                                                
Yours sincerely,

New Delhi, November 17, 2014
Kartika 26, 1936

The Union Finance Minister Shri Arun Jaitley will re-launch the Kisan Vikas Patra (KVP) here tomorrow in the presence of Shri Ravi Shankar Prasad, Union Minister of Communication and IT and Shri Jayant Sinha, Minister of State for Finance among others. Increasing savings rate in the economy was one of the priorities of the new Government on assuming charge. In view of the popular demand and to revitalize Small Savings, the Finance Minister in para 27 of his Budget Speech announced that "Kisan Vikas Patra (KVP) a very popular instrument among small savers will be reintroduced The instrument will encourage people, who may have banked and unbanked savings to invest". Accordingly, it is decided to reintroduce Kisan Vikas Patras (KVPs). KYC norms regarding all National Savings Schemes (NSS) are now applicable in post offices and banks w.e.f. January, 2012.

The re-launched Kisan Vikas Patra (KVP) will be available to the investors in the denomination of Rs. 1000, 5000, 10,000 and 50,000, with no upper ceiling on investment. The certificates can be issued in single or joint names and can be transferred from one person to any other person / persons, multiple times. The facility of transfer from one post office to another anywhere in India and of nomination will be available. The certificate can also be pledged as security to avail loans from the banks and in other case where security is required to be deposited. Initially the certificates will be sold through post offices, but the same will soon be made available to the investing public through designated branches of nationalised banks.

Kisan Vikas Patras have unique liquidity feature, where an investor can, if he so desires, encash his certificates after the lock-in period of 2 years and 6 months and thereafter in any block of six months on pre-determined maturity value. The investment made in the certificate will double in 100 months.

Reintroduction of Kisan Vikas Patra (KVP) is a welcome step not only in the direction of providing safe and secure investment avenues to the small investors but will also help in augmenting the savings rate in the country. The scheme will also safeguard small investors from fraudulent schemes. With a maturity period of 8 years 4 months, the collections under the scheme will be available with the Govt. for a fairly long period to be utilized in financing developmental plans of the Centre and State Governments and will also help in enhancing domestic household financial savings in the country.

Kisan Vikas Patra (KVP) – a certificate savings scheme was launched by the Government on 1st April, 1988. The scheme provided facility of unlimited investment by way of purchase of certificates from post offices in various denominations. The maturity period of the scheme when launched was 5 ½ years and the money invested doubled on maturity. The scheme was very popular among the investors and the percentage share of gross collections secured in KVP was in the range of 9 % to 29 % against the total collections received under all National Savings Schemes in the country. Gross collections under the scheme in the year 2010-11 were Rs. 21631.16 crores which was 9 % of the total gross collections during the year. In the year of its closure, the scheme secured gross collections of Rs. 7575.95 crores (April 2011 to November 2011).

No.36011/1/2012-Estt. (Res.)
Government of India
Department of Personnel and Training
Establishment (Reservation) Section
North Block, New Delhi-110001

Dated the 10th January, 2013.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Sub:- Action against Government servants who get appointment on the basis of false SC/ST/OBC certificates.

The undersigned is directed to invite reference to this Department’s OM No.11012/7/91-Estt.(A) dated 19.5.1993 which provides as under:-

"Wherever 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 probationer or a temporary Government servant, he should be discharged or his services should be terminated. If he has become a permanent Government servant, an inquiry as prescribed in Rule 14 of CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965 may be held and if the charges are proved, the Government servant should be removed or dismissed from service. In no circumstances should any penalty be imposed".

2. The position was reiterated vide this Department’s OM No.42011/22/2006-Estt.(Res.) dated the 29th March, 2007 that the cases other than those protected by the specific order of the Apex Court should be dealt with in accordance with the instructions contained in the aforesaid O.M. However, it has been observed that disciplinary proceedings in the cases involving appointments on the basis of false/fake caste certificates take considerable time and the persons who have secured employment on the basis of false caste certificates enjoy the benefits of Government service whereas such Government servants should be removed / dismissed from the service at the earliest.

3. It is requested that disciplinary enquiries involving the matter of securing jobs on the basis of false/fake certificates should be completed in a time bound manner and unscrupulous persons who have got appointment on the basis of fake/ false caste certificates should not be retained in service and should be dismissed / removed thenceforth.

4. Contents of this OM may be brought to the notice of all concerned.

Appointment on Fake Caste Certificates

Information about appointments secured on the basis of fake/false caste certificates is not centrally maintained.

However, the Central Government had taken one time exercise to collect information about appointments secured on the basis of fake/false caste certificates in the year 2010. As per information received from various Ministries/Departments etc., 1832 appointments were allegedly secured on the basis of fake/false caste certificates. Disciplinary proceedings had been instituted in all the cases. It was reported that out of the above 1832 cases, 276 had been resulted in suspension/removal etc., whereas 521 cases were entangled into litigations and in remaining 1035 cases disciplinary proceedings were pending.

The Government instructions provide that an appointing authority should verify the caste status of SC/ST/OBC candidates at the time of initial appointment as well as every important upturn of the employee’s career.

Chief Secretaries of States/Union Territories have been requested to issue instructions to the District Magistrates/District Collectors/Deputy Commissioners of the Districts to the effect that when asked to verify the veracity etc. of caste certificates, they should ensure at their own level that veracity of the caste/community certificate referred to the district authorities is verified and reported to the appointing authority within one month of receipt of request from such authority. In order to rule out collusion between candidates holding false/forged certificate and employees at the district level or sub-district level, disciplinary proceedings may be initiated against officers who default in timely verification of caste status in such cases or issue false certificates.

This was stated by Shri V. Narayanasamy, Minister of State in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension and Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office in written reply to a question by Shri Aayanur Manjunatha in the Rajya Sabha.
