Government to consider retiring employees for promotions

The government employees must be considered for promotions in case meetings of the Departmental Promotion Committees (DPCs) are held after their retirement, the Centre has said.

It would not be in order if eligible employees, who were within the zone of consideration for the relevant year but are not actually in service when the DPC is being held, are not considered while preparing year-wise zone of consideration or panel and, consequently, their juniors are considered (in their places), who would not have been in the zone of consideration if the DPC had been held in time, the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said in an order.

"Appointment Committee of Cabinet has observed that DPCs often do not consider such eligible officers who are retiring before the occurrence of the vacancy in the panel year," it said adding that this "undesirable trend negate the very purpose" of government's existing instructions for inclusion of such employees.

The DoPT has asked all central government ministries and departments under it to ensure "strict compliance" of its instructions to include retiring employees for promotions in case the DPCs are delayed.

Such retired officials would, however, have no right for actual promotion. The DPC may, if need be, prepare extended panel, the DoPT said.
