Subject:- Promotion of Government servants during training or instruction in India when such periods are treated as on duty under F.R.9(6) (b) and of pay in such cases.
The undersigned is directed to refer to F.R.20 which provides that in respect of any period treated as duty under FR 9(6)(b), a Governnment servant may be granted such pay as Government may consider equitable but in no cases exceeding the pay which the Government servant would have drawn had he been on duty other than duty under FR 9(6)(b).
2.A question, in this connection, has been raised as to whether a Government servant who, while undergoing training or instruction in India, is treated as on duty under FR 9(6)(b) can be promoted to the next higher grade during such training or instruction, if he is otherwise entitled to such promotion and if so, how to regulate his pay on such promotion.The President is pleased to decide that in such cases, there should be no objection to the promotion of the employee to the next higher grade with effect from the date he would have been so promoted had he not proceeded on training, if the conditions indicated below are fulfilled:
(a) he has been approved for promotion to the next higher Grade; and
(b) all his seniors, except thosee regarded as unfit for promotion to the particular higher Grade, available have been promoted to that Grade. He may also be allowed to draw such officiating pay in the next higher grade which he would have drawn from time to time had he been on duty other than duty under FR 9(6)(b).
3.The provisions of para 2 of this OM will also apply Mutais – mutandis to cases of officers deputed abroad for training under FR 51.
4.These orders will take effect from the date of issue.
5.In so far as persons serving in the Indian Audit and Accounts Departments are concerned, these orders issue after consultation with the Comptroller and Auditor General of India.
