Subject: Streamlining the disposal of service matters relating to individual ICAS officers – reg.
With a view to ensure speedy disposal of service matters of individual ICAS officers including Deputation, NOC, Ex-India leave, Vigilance Clearance, transfer/posting, etc., the officer concerned shall in the first instance route her/his request/representation through the proper administrative channel in her/his office of posting, which would be forwarded to the Office of Controller General of Accounts for decision as Cadre Controlling Authority after being duly examined and recommended by the appropriate administrative authority. Under no circumstances, the above channel of submission shall be superseded.
2. In this regard, attention is invited to the provisions of Rule 20 of CCS (Conduct) Rules, 1964 prohibiting Government Servants from bringing any political/outside influence in respect of matters pertaining to his/her service under the Government. However, several instances have been noticed where ICAS officers without exhausting the proper channels within the cadre have directly approached authorities outside the cadre to bring influence to bear upon the Cadre Controlling Authority to further their interest in service matters.
3. All ICAS officers are advised to refrain from by-passing the proper administrative channel for individual service matters failing which, such actions will be deemed to be acts unbecoming of a Government Servant and appropriate administrative/disciplinary action shall be initiated as per extant rules.
