Subject: Cadre Clearance in respect of CSS officers for deputation to ex-cadre posts & approval of VRS – reiteration of extant instructions with regard to the procedure to be adopted.
Attention is invited to this Department’s O.M. No. 2/1/2013-CS-I(P) dated 17.01.2013 (copy enclosed) stipulating procedure to be adopted for seeking cadre clearance in respect of Central Secretariat Service officers from the cadre authority namely CS Division of DoPT.
2. Para 3 of the ibid O.M. dated 17.01.2013 specifies the procedure/steps to be followed while seeking approval of this Department on the proposals pertaining to cadre clearance, voluntary retirement, etc. Of late, it has been observed that Ministries/ Departments, instead of forwarding a comprehensive proposal in accordance with the procedure stipulated through afore-mentioned instructions, tend to forward incomplete proposals (especially lacking inclusive vigilance clearance after obtaining requisite Status through AV Division). This often result in unwarranted delay in disposal of such cases thereby leading to difficulties in smooth management of the cadre.
3. Its, therefore, requested that the procedure/instructions stipulated in the O.M. 2/1/2013-CS-(P) dated 17.01.2013 may scrupulously be adhered to. The instructions contained in O.M. No. 2/1/2013-CS-I(P) dated 26.07.2016 (copy enclosed) prescribing requisite certification with regard to fulfillment of eligibility conditions of an applicant for deputation post, may also be complied with while forwarding composite proposals seeking cadre clearance for the purpose.
4. CS Division will consider only such requests which are complete in all respects for grant of cadre clearance, approval for voluntary retirement, etc.
