It has come to the notice of the Government that some departments are still resorting to exigency appointments; for e.g. Mali, Chowkidar, Peon on contingency basis which are untenable as the normal office can function even without the said staff. Such contingency appointments, without publicly inviting applications, whether on regular basis, ad-hoc, fixed, casual or work-charged are irregular and illegal.
No appointment of any sort without sanctioned/ vacant posts shall be made and appointment on contract basis is banned as laid down in the P&AR Department’s OM No.AR- 5/ASSO/98(C) dated 26/2/2001 and OM No. AR-5/ASSO/98 dated 6/6/2016. In view of the circumstances stated above, the proposals for any new/fresh appointments by any departments for every category of post may be submitted to the Administrative Heads of Department for prior approval for due process of recruitment by the NPSC/Departmental Recruitment Board (DRB).
The AHoD shall be responsible to verify the availability of the sanctioned post and duly authenticate each post vacancy against the unique employee code generated by the Personal Information Management System (PIMS) or the post creation order in case of new post.
Any appointment order issued without following the due process and without the unique employee code from PIMS shall be considered invalid, null and void. Hence, the PIMS Cell P&AR Department shall not register any appointments made without observing the due process as laid down and the Finance Department shall not grant fund provision on salaries head against the particular department during the Revised Estimate.
