Sir/Madam,

Samiti has well settled staff structure with defined recruitment rules. However, on need basis, contract labour/daily wager/casual labour are being engaged for some specific needs of JNVs being residential in nature.

2. The Competent Authority taking all aspects into consideration, constituted a committee of the officers to draft uniform guidelines for engaging all contractual manpower through outsourcing agency and to streamline the process of engaging manpower as well as to ensure compliance of all regulations related to labour laws and welfare measures.

3. The guidelines for outsourcing of manpower, classification of general services in ROs/ Nlls/JNVs and procedures for engagement of agency are enclosed as Annexure-1.

4. As per the recommendations of the committee and legal opinion, a draft document containing the details of draft agreement to be executed with the outsourcing agency is enclosed as Annexure-1(8). Please ensure that all JNVs as well as NLIs/ROs may use the same while executing the agreement with the concerned agency. This document is prepared by keeping JNVs into consideration. ROs and NLIs may modify the document accordingly. ROs can also make changes, if essential as per local needs.

5. The nomenclature of the personnel engaged should be as per GeM portal instead of our regular nomenclature or designation of vacant post and it should be multifunctional as per need of work.

6. Number of security personnel and house keeping staff to be engaged through outsourcing

By considering the residential nature of JNVs and to ensure cleanliness, safety and security of JNV/NLI/ROs, it is approved by the competent authority to engage personnel accordingly. Every JNV/NLI/RO has been sanctioned the post of Chowkidar / Chowkidar cum Sweeper / Sweepers. If regular employees are working against the sanctioned post, the same is to be adjusted and accordingly the number of personnel to be engaged through outsourcing may be reduced. When outsourced personnel are engaged, the need for leave reserve is also to be incorporated in the terms and conditions.

A) Engagement at Regional Offices

    • Security personnel – 3 per day ( 1 personnel X 3 shifts of 08 hrs.)
    • Housekeeping including gardening – 02 per day

B) Engagement at NLIs

NLIs have the facility of residential training including accommodation for participants. By considering the need to maintain the campus. the following is approved:

    • Security personnel – 3 per day ( 1 personnel X 3 shift of 08 hrs.)
    • Housekeeping including gardening – 02

C) Engagement at JNVs

JNVs are residential schools, which are spread out to around 25 to 30 acres. Around 560 students and 45 staff with families are staying in the campus. Ensuring security and hygienic condition in the campus including maintaining garden is of paramount importance. By considering the need. it is approved to engage outsourced personnel as per the details given below:

    1. For 103 JNVs in the region as approved by the Executive Committee.

Selection of 10% JNVs may be done as per criteria specified in Annexure-I(C) enclosed. Accordingly the following personnel may be engaged.

    • Security personnel – 06 (Including regular JNV staff)
    • 2 personnel X 3 shifts of 08 hrs.
    • One of the two personnel may be deputed at the main gate of JNV to look after the safety and security near the main gate including verifying at the entry point.

In addition to 06 security personnel through outsourcing, 02 core takers for boys and l or 2 matron (as per the strength of girls) may be engaged, as directed by this office as per reference No. 1, 3 & 5.It is approved by the competent authority to engage outsourced personnel accordingly. Every JNV has the sanctioned post of Chowkidor/ Chowkidar cum Sweeper / Sweeper and if regular employees are working against sanctioned post, the same is to be adjusted and accordingly the number of personnel to be engaged may be minimized. Hence, in total, 01 or 02 matron, 02 care taker and 06 security personnel would be available in the JNV to ensure safety and security.If any regular employee other than those who ore working as care taker ore working in JNV, the same may be considered for working as security personnel in shifts.
