golden yug
[ July 04, 2017 ] Despite clear-cut instructions issued on the subject from time to time, instances still come to the notice of Finance Department where the Government employees continue/are allowed continuing to remain in service beyond the normal date of their retirement on one pretext or the other, contrary to the explicit provisions of rules. Consequently, proposals for regularization of such irregular overstayed are forwarded to Finance Department for agreement there to in relaxation of rules without any corrective/ coercive action being taken/initiated by the Departments against the defaulting officers. This practice has been viewed seriously in Finance Department. Accordingly, all the Administrative Secretaries to Government are requested to impress upon their subordinate HoD"s/ Controlling officers to desist from such practice and strictly adhere to the codal provisions while dealing with such issues. The Government instruction No 2 below Article 226 (1) of J&K CSR"s Vol. 1 should be the guiding factor while coming across/ disposing off such issues.Furthermore, the HoD"s/Controlling Officers are again reminded of being duty bound to have framed and issued Retirement Memos bi-annually (on 1st January & 1st July) every year of all Gazetted/Non-Gazetted Government Servants due to retire within next 24 to 30 months as prescribed/laid down under Article 285(a)l of J&K CSR"s Vol. I.The officers involved/responsible for overstayal of employees in service beyond their due dates of retirement be identified and appropriate action as prescribed under rules initiated against them to overcome such situations.
