Chain of acceptance of APARs of Group ‘C’ staff of a Division : Railway Board RBE No. 46/2023 dated 24.03.2023
The process for the acceptance of Annual Performance Appraisal Reports (APARs) of Railway Group C employees typically involves the following steps:
- Self-appraisal by the employee: The employee will first fill out a self-appraisal form, in which they will rate their own performance during the year, set goals for the coming year, and provide any other relevant information.
- Appraisal by the Reporting Officer: The Reporting Officer (RO) will review the self-appraisal form and prepare an appraisal report, in which they will rate the employee’s performance and provide feedback. The RO is usually the immediate supervisor of the employee.
- Appraisal by the Reviewing Officer: The appraisal report prepared by the RO is then reviewed by the Reviewing Officer (ROO), who is usually the next level of management. The ROO will examine the report for completeness and accuracy, provide feedback to the RO if necessary, and rate the employee’s performance.

Attention is invited to instructions contained in Board’s letter No. E(NG)I-90/CR/4 dated 17.06.1991 (MC No. 28/91), governing APARs of non gazetted employees.
Consequent upon doubts being raised in certain quarters regarding the procedure/practice being followed for chain of acceptance of APARs of supervisory staff of the Accounts Department being quite different from the existing provisions contained in Master Circular No. 28/91, and instructions issued on the subject from time to time, the matter was examined and clarification was issued vide letter of even number date 13.5.2022 that the same system as contained in Master Circular No. 28/91 ibid is to be followed by all Departments, including the Accounts Department.
The matter has been reviewed further and it is reiterated that the APARs of supervisory staff of Accounts Department [Sr. SO (Accounts), Sr. TIA & Sr. ISA] should continue to be governed as per exiting provisions contained in Master Circular No. 28/91 and subsequent clarification issued vide letter dated 13.05.2022 ibid. Mapping of APARs of Accounts staff in the APAR/HRMS is to be done accordingly.
