[ June 12, 2017 ] Govt Vide Circular No. 13-GAD of 2005 dated 21-06-2005, had issued instructions to all the Administrative Secretaries, both the Divisional Commissioners, all Heads of the Departments and Deputy Commissioners to follow the procedure for processing the cases of foreign visits of Hon"ble Ministers, Legislators and Government Officers as prescribed by the Government of India. The same was subsequently reiterated vide Circular No. 12-GAD of 2013 dated 24-05-2013. It has been noticed that despite clear instructions on the subject, various departments are submitting proposals, which relate to the foreign visits, to the General Administration Department at very short notice as a result of which it becomes difficult to obtain the approval of the Competent Authority (HCM) before the commencement of the proposed visit. It is, therefore, enjoined upon all the concerned to strictly follow the prescribed procedure while processing the cases of foreign visits of Hon"ble Ministers, Legislators and Officers notified by the General Administration Department vide Circular No. 13-GAD of 2005 dated 21-06-2005 and Circular No. 12-GAD of 2013 dated 24-05-2013.
