Office Memorandum
Subject: Implementation of recommendations of Kamlesh Chandra Committee on giving preference to Casual Labourers in selection to GDS posts-reg.
The undersigned is directed to refer to para 14.26 of GDS Committee on giving preference to Casual Labourers in selection to GDS posts. The Committee observed that, the scheme of employing casual labourers is not in vogue from 01.09.1993 onwards and those eligible among those who were selected before 01.09.1993 would have been selected to eligible posts by now. Department has earmarked 25o/o of vacancies for them for recruitment as Multi Tasking Staff in Post/Mail Offices as per Recruitment Ru1es. The committee is of the view that there is no necd to notify GDS vacancies to Casual Labourers as of now. Such a provision will indirectly pave the way for backdoor entry of ineligible candidates to GDS service. Department may examine this aspect.
2. The matter has been examined and following orders are issued:-
(i) As per the scheme for Casual Labourers (Grant of Temporary Status and Regularisation, temporary status is granted to those Casual Labourers who were in employment as on 10.09.1993, subject to fulfillment of certain conditions. Such Casuai Labourers who complete 13 years of service are to be treated at par with temporary   MTS employees and are entitled to various benefits viz. leave, holidays, CGEGIS, GPF, Medical aid, LTC etc. and counting of temporary service after regularization for retirement benefits. Further, engagement of Casual Labourers is not permissible after the cutoff date.
(ii) There is already provision in the Recruitment Rules of MTS 2018 issued vide Directorate letter no.37-33/2009-SPB-I dated 27th August 2018 giving preference to Casual Labourers for regularization in service on seniority basis. Department has earmarke d. 25Yo of vacancies for Casual Labourer. If Casual Labourers are engaged as GDS, there may be a scenario wherein a Casual Labourer, who was about to get regularized as per the Recruitment Rules 2018 of Multi Tasking Staff, may not be considered for regularization as MTS.
 (iii) In view of the above, it has been decided by the Competent Authority that, GDS vacancies should not be notified for Casual Labourers from the date of issue of this OM. 

3. The above instructions will come into effect from the date of issue of this O.M

Provision for granting Special Casual Leave for the Woman employees working in the Central Government Organizations



No.II/10/Part I
Dated: 24/10/2019
The Cabinet Secretary,
Rashtrapati Bhawan,
New Delhi - 110004

Dear Sir,

Sub: Provision for granting Special Casual Leave for the Woman employees (45 years of age and above) working in the Central Government Organizations - reg.

The Government of India is aware that with the increased efficiency levels among women in every walk of life, more importantly in the Government sector, a good number of female candidates has been joining services in various organizations of the Central Government in different capacities at all levels ranging from Group 'C' to Group 'A'. While many of them have been performing duties efficiently, their physiological condition changes when they reach certain age which is a natural phenomenon. Federation desires to bring to your kind notice that there is need to consider granting Special Casual Leave for the Women employees of 45 years age and above working in the Central Government services due to the reason that they face hormonal imbalances at the menopause stage which hampers the physical and mental health of women. Therefore provision for granting Special Casual Leave for those Woman employees of 45 years age and above including those who undergo Hysterectomy Operation needs to be considered.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Cabinet Secretary to kindly intervene and get the matter examined for making provision for granting Special Casual Leave to the Woman employees of Central Government services in the above mentioned situations.

Yours faithfully,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)

Subject: Relaxation of educational qualification for compassionate appointment in the case of wife of medically boarded out invalidated employees
Reference : Minutes of the 47th Meeting of the National Council (JCM) Chaired by the Cabinet Secretary held on 13.04.2019 circulated vide DOP&T OM No.3/1/2019-JCA dated 13th June,2019
 Sir,
The above demand was raised by the Staff Side of the National Council (JCM) in the 47th Meeting of the National Council (JCM) chaired by the Cabinet Secretary held on 13.04.2019 while discussing the agenda at 6.4.10, Item No.20/19/NC-47 on the subject of “Revised Scheme of Compassionate Appointment”. The Staff Side pointed out that while educational qualification is not insisted for widows for Compassionate Appointment, educational qualification is insisted in the case of wife of medically invalidated / boarded out employees. This anomaly may be rectified and the wife of employees who are medically invalidated should also be treated at par with the widows for granting Compassionate Appointment.
After discussion the Chairman suggested to Secretary (Personnel) that this issue may be sympathetically reexamined.
In view of the above suggestion given by the Cabinet Secretary in the meeting it is requested that the DOP&T may kindly arrange to issue instructions for exemption of educational qualification for Compassionate Appointment in the case of wife of medically invalidated / boarded out employees.
A copy of your instruction may please be endorsed to this Office.
Thanking you,





Yours faithfully,
