Subject: Provisions relating to proforma promotion
Undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s OM No. 6/8/2009-Estt (Pay-II) dated the 17th June, 2010 regarding consolidated instructions on deputations. References are being received from Ministries/Departments seeking clarifications/relaxations in respect of provisions which pertain to proforma promotion in these orders or otherwise. The issues have been considered in consultation with the Department of Expenditure, and it has been decided to provide as under:
(i) Proforma promotion in the case of candidates promoted on passing a Limited Departmental Examination
The candidates passing the Limited Departmental Examination may be allowed proforma promotion as under:
In the case of candidates who have passed the LDCE and their names have been recommended for promotion, proforma promotions may be allowed from the date their juniors in the cadre in the order of merit in the LDCE have been so promoted. This may also be allowed in case there is no junior on account of such candidate being the last in the order of ranks/merit from the date he would have received such promotion if he had been in his cadre.
Provided it will be ensured that the conditions laid down in the Department of Personnel OM No.8/4/84-Estt-(Pay-I) dated the 15th July, 1985 are strictly fulfilled and the principle of NBR based on overall seniority list of cadres is followed.
(ii) Extension after the employee receives a proforma promotion:
The para 8.6 of the OM No. 6/8/2009-Estt (Pay-II) dated the 17th June, 2010 relating to regulation of pay after an officer has got proforma
promotion and extension of deputation thereafter, which reads as under:
"If the Grade pay of the officer in the parent cadre becomes higher than that of the deputation post after getting proforma promotion, he may be allowed the pay in the pay band + Grade Pay of the post to which he is promoted till the time he completes_the normal/ extended period of deputation (if he gets proforma promotion in the extended period) already sanctioned, if he so opts. No extension in the period of deputation shall be allowed to him after completing the sanctioned period of deputation."
is modified as follows:
8.6 (a)If the Grade pay of the officer in the parent cadre becomes higher than that of the deputation post after getting proforma promotion, he may be allowed the pay in the pay band + Grade Pay of the post to which he is promoted, if he so opts. In such cases, extensions in deputation after an employee has received the proforma promotion may be considered as per the instructions contained in paras 8.1 to 8.3.2.
