No. 1758-Gen.
GOVERNMENT OF ORISSA

POLITICAL & SERVICES DEPARTMENT

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

The 8th February 1963

Subject – Release of civil Government servants to take up Military Service during the present emergency.

            It is found that quite a large number of State Government employees want to offer their Services for Military duty, during the present emergency. While appreciating such response and encouraging them to take up Military Service, Government however feel that, at the same time the efficiency of the civil Administration should also be maintained. The Civil Administration has to shoulder many additional burden of work because of the emergency. The policy of Government that even during the emergency there should be the minimum possible dislocation of development programmes is a further reason why unplanned depletion of civil Service cadres would be undesirable. Considering all these facts the Government have been pleased to decide as follows :-

(a)                As a general rule, officers of All-India Services and the State Service Class I should not be released for Military Services. The only exception may be for an officer who possesses any special qualification for Military Service and if it is considered that his employment in the Military would be of greater value to the country than his continuance in the civil posts.

(b)                With regard to other Services, where the cadres are large, Officers can be released for Military Services. For example, more officers of Class II Services can be released than Class I services, release of Class III Services will be more liberal than Class II and release of Class IV officers may be still more liberal and they should be allowed to apply freely.

(c)                But if the release of a Government servant of any category of cadre is likely to affect the maintenance of an essential Service, such an officer should not be released.

(d)                Services whose members require long training and experience to be really effective in the Military Service may not be released.

(e)                Persons with engineering and medical qualifications may be freely permitted to join Military Services unless they are employed in essential services important to the Defence effort.

2. Government have further decided that the procedure for dealing with applications for joining Military Service should be as follows :-

(a)                Where requests are made by the military authorities to have the services of a particular civil officer serving under State Government, all such request should be initially dealt with in Home Department who will consult the administrative department concerned.

(b)                In all other cases, the appointing authorities may dispose of the applications in accordance with the general policy laid down in paragraph 1 above.

To

            All Departments of Government/

            All Heads of Departments/All Collectors.

Subject – Service benefits to State Government servants and outsiders who render approved Military Service on return to employment under State Government.

            In the present emergency large scale recruitments are being made to the Army and other Defence Services connected with National Defence. To encourage Government employees as well as outsiders to join the Military Service during the present emergency Government have been considering to grant them some concessions in matters of recruitment to posts under them and conditions of service. After careful consideration it has been decided that Government servants of the State Government who are permitted to join Military service and persons who are recruited directly to the said service should get the concessions shown in Annexure I and Annexure II respectively on their return or recruitment to posts under Government, when they are released from the Army after satisfactory Military Service.

            “Approved Military Service” would include service in the Armed Forces and services in the Territorial Army on mobilisation, Auxiliary Air Force, India Naval Reserve, Indian  Naval Volutur Reserve and Military Police and Armed Force Reserve in service in Frontier States.

            It is requested that the above decision of Government may be brought to the notice of all Government servants serving in the Departments/Heads of Departments/District Offices and all appointing authorities under the State Government.

[ILLEGIBLE]

Joint Secretary to Government

ANNEXURE I

Service benefits to which employees of Government of Orissa will be eligible on their return to Civil Employment after satisfactory Military Service (as approved) and on their release from such service.

            The following concessions are admissible to the employees of the State Government, who have served satisfactorily in the “Approved Military Service” and who return to appointments under the State Government, on release from such service.

            1. Retention of lien – (a) All Government servants who are permitted to take up Approved Military Service under the present emergency will be allowed to retain lien in their civil posts during the period of their absence on Military Service to enable them to return to their civil posts on release from Military Service.

            (b) Under the Orissa Service Code Rules a lien on the posts temporarily held by a civil Government servant cannot be granted. It has been decided that a temporary civil Government servant who is permitted to take up Approved Military Service should, if he so applies be permitted to return to his civil post on release from the Military Service provided the temporary post held by him continues to exist at that time. Where the temporary post is not in existence at the time of his return from the Military Service he will be absorbed in a similar post in preference to other candidates. The period of his Military Service will count towards his total length of service and his seniority, in the post in which he is absorbed on release from Military Service.

            (c) If during the period of his War Service, the temporary post which was held by a Government servant is made permanent, the claim of the incumbent for confirmation against the post will be protected, Only on his declining to be confirmed against the post prior to his release another officer can be confirmed against it. On his return to this post after his release, he will be confirmed against the post.

            2. Promotion – (a) During the period of such Approved Military Service normal prospects of promotion of the incumbent shall also be protected as a result of which the Government servant concerned will be entitled to pro forma promotion in his parent Department and also to seniority in the higher post to which he would otherwise have been entitled, if he had not proceeded on Military Service.

            (b) 25 per cent of the posts falling vacant and which are to be filled up by promotion, selection and transfer every year, shall be kept reserved for such personnel. These may be filled up by temporary promotions to meet the immediate requirement of the work but these are to be reserved to be filled up ultimately by those returning after Approved Military Service.

            3. Pay – (a) The Government servant who is permitted to take up such Military Service shall be entitled to draw during Military Service the civil rates of pay and allowances which would be admissible to him from time to time, had he not proceeded on Military Service or the military rates of pay and allowances whichever is higher. In the case of a civil Government servant who takes up Military Service as a J. C. O. other ranks, the civil rates of pay and allowances which would be admissible to him from time to time shall, however, be reduced by Rs. 25 on account of free rations.

            (b) Where the civil rates of pay and allowances are admissible, the difference between those rates and the military rates will be paid by the Defence Authority and the debit thereof will subsequently be raised against the Civil Department concerned.

            4. Provident Fund – A Government servant who takes up such Military Service during the present emergency shall while so employed and subject to the condition stated below retain his rights or liability as the case may be of subscribing in accordance with the rules of the fund concerned to any Provident Fund of which he is a member.

            While in Military Service, subscriptions to the Provident Fund and the Government contributions towards the account of a subscriber to the Contributory Provident Fund will be calculated on the basis of the Government servants emoluments. The Government contribution where payable towards the Provident Fund Account of a subscriber during the period of Military Service will form a charge against the Defence Service estimates. Those estimates will, however, be entitled to a refund of the whole amount charged thereto on this account or of a portion thereof, as the case may be in any individual case in which the whole of the Government contribution with interest thereon or a fraction thereon is withheld under relevant rule of the Contributory Provident Fund Rules.

            5. Leave – A permanent State Government servant who is permitted to take up such Military Service during the present emergency shall be allowed to earn leave during the period of Approved Military Service according to the State Leave Rules applicable to him before his transfer to Military Service. The amount of leave actually taken by such person while in the Military Service shall be deducted from his Civil Leave Account. Any case of excess consumption of leave during Military Service shall be condoned, but if the leave taken during  the Military Service is less than the leave earned during that service according to the Civil Leave Rules the balance will be credited to their Civil Leave Account.

            The Temporary Government servants during Military Service will be governed by the Military Leave Rules in all respects.

            In all cases the leave salary will be paid by the Defence Authorities and no leave salary contribution shall be demanded by the State Government from the Ministry of Defence.

            6. Pension – The period of Military Service will count for pension in full in the case of permanent Government servants subject to the usual conditions relating to the reckoning of qualifying service. In the case of temporary Government servants, the period will also count subject to the usual conditions on confirmation in a permanent post under the State Government.

            7. Fixation of initial pay – (a) When a Government servant, after his Military Service, is appointed to a permanent or temporary post outside his parent department or cadre, the Military Service rendered by him shall be taken into account in fixing his initial pay in the new post, provided that he may reserve his choice for such concession in the next higher post.

            (b) If such a Government servant reverts to the same post which he held prior to joining the Military Service or to any other post in his parent office held by him by pro forma promotion while in Military Service, he may reserve his choice for the next higher post.

            (c) The Concession of counting War Service for fixation of initial pay is admissible once only at the choice of the Government servant and the option once exercised is irrevocable. If any one reserves his choice for the next higher post, he should exercise his option within three months from the date of joining of such post.

ANNEXURE II

Service benefits which will be available to persons who are directly recruited to Approved Military Service and who on their release from such Military Service are recruited to civil employment under the State Government

            The following concessions are admissible to persons other than Government servants, who have rendered Approved Military Service; if such persons are recruited to civil posts under the State Government on release from such Military Service.

            1. Reservation of posts – 25 per cent of the posts in different services falling vacant every year which are to be filled up by direct recruitment shall be reserved for those who are released from the army with Approved Military Service. These reserved posts may be filled only by temporary recruitment to meet immediate requirement of work but should ultimately be filled up by ex-Military personnel on their release from Approved Military Service.

            2. Relaxation of age for recruitment – In calculating the age of a candidate who has rendered Approved Military Service condonation of over-age to the extent of the whole or part of the period of Approved Military Service rendered by such candidate will be allowed. Even where by condoning the over-age in the above manner the candidate is found still to exceed the maximum age limit prescribed for the service Government may relax it further in suitable cases to make the persons eligible for appointment to such service.

            3. Relaxation of educational qualification – It has been decided that where a University Degree is the prescribed qualification, a Military Service candidate who has passed the Intermediate examination of a University will be eligible. The army special certificate will also be treated as equivalent to Matriculation. For technical services such as the engineering, medical and other services, the appointing authority in his discretion will be competent to relax the educational standard in favour of ex-Military candidates after taking into account their individual experience and fitness, The minimum qualification for educational service such as Professors, administrators and teachers will not however be relaxed.

            4. Conditions of service – The period of such Military Service during the period of the emergency, will count for fixation of initial pay, seniority and pension. Leave other than extraordinary leave (While in Military Service) granted by a competent authority will be rewarded as a part of the Military Service.

            Pay – In case of a candidate with Military Service who having been directly recruited to Military Service had no lien on any post under government before undertaking Military Service and who is appointed to a temporary or permanent post under Government on release from Military Service the initial pay will be fixed after taking into account the total period of his Military Service, irrespective of the posts held and pay drawn by him while in Military Service.

            (b) Seniority – The actual period of service rendered in Approved Military Service shall count towards seniority. In other words, such a candidate should be allowed to antedate his seniority by the total length of his actual Military Service, the break in between the Approved Military Services rendered by the candidate and the break in between termination of Military Service and commencement of civil services being ignored from consideration. The seniority of such a candidate should be fixed according to the periods spent in Military Service, in the cadre under the State Government in which he is appointed for the first time and not thereafter.

            A war service candidate will be treated as a directly recruited candidate but he will be placed above the direct recruits of the year. His seniority in the service should also be accordingly determined.

            (c) Pension – The period of Military Service will count towards pension, subject to the usual conditions mentioned in Article 357-A of Civil Service Regulations when the Government servant is confirmed in a permanent post under the State Government.

Subject – Service benefits to State Government servants and outsiders for Approved Military Service on return to employment under State Government.

Sir,

            With reference to your No. TM-1-40-1052, dated the 2nd September 1963 (Copy enclosed) I am directed to say that your presumption that the benefits of counting the period of military service towards total length of service and seniority of a temporary Government servant permitted to take up military service in the post in which he is absorbed on release from the Military Service as provided in Para. 1 (b) of Annexure I appended to this Department circular Memo. No. 6225 (88) Gen., dated the 2nd May 1963 will be admissible only when the temporary Government servant is absorbed without break in Government service soon after his release from the military service is correct. The question of break may not be wise in such case as 25% of posts in different services falling vacant every year are to be reserved for such military service candidates. Where however the break occurs due to the fault of such a candidate he may be treated as a new entrant and will avail of the benefit for military service like an outsider under Annexure II of the said Memo.

            Your presumption that according to Para. 1 (c) of Annexure I of the said Memo, a temporary Government servant who declines confirmation against the post he was holding while on war service will, on his return to this post after his release, be confirmed against the next available post is also confirmed.

Yours faithfully,

            2. According to Para. 1 (c) of the Annexure I referred to above, a temporary Government servant who declines confirmation against the post he was holding while on war service, will, on his return to this post after his release, be confirmed against the post. It is presumed that the officer on reversion will be confirmed against next available post.

            The undersigned is directed to refer to the Home Department Memo.

Subject – Service benefits to State Government servants and outsiders who render approved Military Service during the present emergency on return to employment under State Government.

            The under undersigned is directed to invite a reference to Paragraph 2 (a) of Annexure I appended to this Department circular Memo. No. 6225 (88)-Gen., dated the 2nd May 1963 wherein it has been laid down that during the period of approved military service normal prospects of promotion of the incumbent shall also be protected as a result of which the Government servant concerned will be entitled to pro forma promotion in his parent Department and also to seniority in the higher post to which he would otherwise have been entitled, if he had not proceeded on military service.

            A question has been raised as to whether in cases where passing of any departmental examination (s) is a condition precedent to promotion, a civil Government servant, who had not already passed the prescribed examination (s) before taking up military service, should be allowed pro forma promotion while he is away on military service. After careful consideration Government have been pleased to decide that in such circumstances a civil Government servant who had not already passed the departmental examination (s) before taking up military service should not be promoted while he is away on such service but on reversion from military service he should be allowed to take as many chances to pass the prescribed examination (s) as he might have missed because of joining military service during the present emergency and if he passes the examination (s) in one of those chances, he should be promoted with retrospective effect from the date he would have been so promoted if he had passed the examination (s) in the corresponding chance that he could have otherwise availed himself if, but for his joining military service. To provide for such promotion, sufficient number of persons promoted to the grade concerned should be kept on an officiating basis, if necessary, so that they could be reverted in the event of promotion of the persons, returning form approved military service.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

The 18th July 1978

Subject – Grant of concessions to physically handicapped persons in the matter of employment in public service.

            The question of making a suitable provision for enabling disabled persons to secure employment had been engaging the attention of Government for some time past. A physically handicapped person has been looked upon as an object of charity and pity in the society for the physical deformity he suffers from. It is often forgotten that despite of his permanent disability a physically handicapped person still possesses residual resources which in fact, would enable him to take fresh task involving physical ability or mental alertness. It is, therefore, necessary to provide all possible opportunities to the physically handicapped to develop their own personality and economic independence.

            2. In consideration of the above fact the Governor has been pleased to decide that no less than one per cent of the vacancies in different services and posts under the Government to which direct recruitment is made, shall be reserved to be filled up by qualified disabled persons as defined in the following paragraph provided such persons possess the minimum prescribed qualifications and fulfill the conditions laid down in the relevant rules, regulations and orders.

(c)                Limitation of the field of vision subtending at angle of 20 degrees or worse.

(B)              Deaf – The deaf are those in whom the sense of hearing is non-functional for the ordinary purposes of life. Generally loss of hearing at 70 decibels or above at 500, 1000 or 2000 frequencies will make residual hearing non-functional and will include deaf-mute persons.

(C)              Orthopaedically handicapped – The orthopaedically handicapped are those who have a physical defect or deformity which causes an interference with normal functioning of bones, muscles and joints.

(D)              Speech defective – A person suffering from Aphasia (Complete loss of speech but sense of hearing normal) or whose speech is not clear and/or normal.

4. The posts or category of posts reserved for the physically handicapped shall be intimated to the Director of Community Development and Social Welfare in the pro forma enclosed by 31st March each year.

5. A cell shall be constituted under the Community Development and Social Welfare Department to register the names of physically handicapped category-wise. The cell shall receive applications from physically handicapped for registration. Application for registration in the cell accompany certificate relating to educational qualification, the training, etc. if any, and certificate of age.

6. The Director of C. D. and S. W. will nominate Medical Exports for each category of physically handicapped persons for detailed medical examination for assessing the degree of disability and capability to perform the duties of different posts irrespective of the physical disability for which no fee shall be paid by the physically handicapped. The medical certificate so obtained from the Medical Expert shall be attached to the application of the physically handicapped persons by the Director, Community Development and Social Welfare and identity cards shall be issued to each physically handicapped persons on the said report.

7. The Director of Community Development and Social Welfare, keeping in view the educational qualification of the physically handicapped persons and the medical certificate obtained from the Medical Experts shall recommend the cases to different Departments for appointment against different posts reserved for the physically handicapped persons.

8. Each Department of Government after having due assessment of the nature and functional requirement of each category of post under them and having regard to functional suitability of each category of physically handicapped as contained in paragraph (3) above shall also, keeping in view the recommendation of the Director, Community Development and Social Welfare, fill up the posts in different categories reserved for the physically handicapped.

9. The physically handicapped persons, at the time of appointment against different posts reserved for them, shall produce the identity card issued in their favour by the Director, Community Development and Social Welfare. They shall not be subject to the usual medical examination provided in the respective service rules and regulations and other on first entry into the Government service.

10. In the event of non-availability of suitable candidates for appointment against the posts reserved for them, such vacancies shall be filled up by normal candidates and equivalent number of additional vacancies shall be reserved in the subsequent year. Such of the vacancies which remain so unfilled, shall be carried forward to the subsequent three recruitment years at the maximum and thereafter such reservation would lapse.

11. The maximum age limit prescribed for appointment to various posts and services under the Government shall be relaxed by 5 years in case of physically handicapped persons.

12. The following concessions shall be allowed to the physically handicapped persons for their eligibility for appointment to posts and services under Government reserved for them :-

(1)                5 per cent of marks wherever minimum percentage of marks in any examination is prescribed,

(2)                The condition or training/test/experience wherever prescribed shall not apply to the physically handicapped persons for appointment to posts reserved for them. Where a particular training is essential for appointment to a post the physically handicapped person shall complete such training within 2 years from the date of appointment.

13. Persons already in employment against different posts under the Government, who may suffer from physical handicap as defined in Para. (3) above shall also be entitled to be absorbed against the vacancies reserved in different posts and services for physically handicapped persons subject to the conditions laid down in this Office Memorandum.

14.

Similar reservation may also be made in the posts in the public sector undertakings under their administrative control and disabled persons appointed against those posts according to their suitability.

GOVERNMENT OF ORISSA

POLITICAL & SERVICES DEPARTMENT

RESOLUTION

The 24th July 1978

Subject – Grant of concessions to physically handicapped persons in the matter of employment in public service.

            The question of making a suitable provision for enabling disabled persons to secure employment had been engaging the attention of Government for sometime past. A physically handicapped person has been looked upon as on object of charity and pity in the society for the physical deformity he suffers from. It is often forgotten that despite of his permanent disability a physically handicapped person still possesses residual resources which in fact, would enable him to take fresh tasks involving physical ability or mental alertness. It is, therefore, necessary to provide all possible opportunities to the physically handicapped to develop their own personality and economic independence.

            2. In consideration of the above fact the Governor has been pleased to decide that no less than one per cent of the vacancies in different services and posts under the Government to which direct recruitment is made, shall be reserved to be filled up by qualified disabled persons as defined in the following paragraph provided such persons possess the minimum prescribed qualifications and fulfill the conditions laid down in the relevant rules, regulations and orders.

            3. The physically handicapped means and includes the following categories of physically handicapped persons :-

(A)              Blind – The Blind are those who are suffering from any of the following conditions :-

(a)                Total absence of sight,

(b)                Visual acuity not exceeding 6/60 or 20/200 (Snellen) in the better eye with correcting lenses,

(c)                Limitation of the field of vision subtending at angle of 20 degrees or worse.

(B)              Deaf – The deaf are those in whom the sense of hearing is non-functional for the ordinary purposes of life. Generally loss of hearing at 70 decibels or above at 500, 1000 or 2000 frequencies will make residual hearing non-functional and will include deaf-mute persons.

(C)              Orthopaedically handicapped – The orthopaedically handicapped are those who have a physical defect or deformity which causes an interference with normal functioning of bones, muscles and joints.

(D)              Speech defective – A person suffering from Aphasia (Complete loss of speech but sense of hearing normal) or whose speech is not clear and/or normal.

4. The posts or category of posts reserved for the physically handicapped shall be intimated to the Director of Community Development and Social Welfare as in the following pro forma by 31st March each year.

            Consequent upon the decision of the Government of India in the year, 1978, the State Government made reservation of 1% of vacancies for rehabilitation of physically handicapped persons in the public service.

            2. Government of India have now, on consideration of the matter, have decided that for the purpose of employment of the blind, the deaf and the orthopaedically handicapped persons, the reservation in Group C. & D. posts and services for physically handicapped persons should be made to the following extent under the Central Government.

 

Category of the handicapped

Percentage of reservation

1.

The Blind

2.

The Deaf

3.

The Orthopaedically handicapped

            13. Accordingly it has been decided by the State Government that the reservations for filling the Group ‘C’ and Group ‘D’ posts and services under the State Government and Public Sector Undertakings should be made for rehabilitation of physically handicapped persons of the above categories at the initial stage of recruitment. The categorisation of the physically handicapped persons for employment will be on the basis of definition as per Annexure.

            4. The reservation of posts and services should be made separately for each of the aforesaid three categories of the physically handicapped persons with provision for inter-exchange of vacancies if candidates belonging to a particular category of persons are not available or if the nature of vacancies in an office is such that a given category of persons cannot be employed. If in any year, the vacancies reserved for these categories are not filled up, the reservations should be carried over for a period up to three recruitment years. In order to implement these reservation orders, the jobs which can be performed by various categories of physically handicapped persons without loss of productivity, should be identified by the Government/Departments concerned.

            5. Where a department consider that it is not possible to provide employment for the physically handicapped persons to the extent of reservation in view of the nature of duties expected to be performed by the employees in that particular Department, that Department could be partly or fully exempted from implementing the reservation orders. The grant of such exemption shall be decided by an inter-Departmental Committee of C.D.& R. R. (G. A.) (O. & M.) Department of Health and the Administrative Department concerned would be represented.

            6. In the categories of jobs which are identified by the Government/Departments as being particularly suitable for handicapped persons other things being the same preference should be given to handicapped persons for such jobs even in excess of the quota reserved for them in accordance with the instructions contained in paragraph 2 above.

1.

Amended vide G. A. Department Corrigendum No. 27375, dated the 13th October 1997.

            7. With a view to ensuring reservation of vacancies for the physically handicapped persons in Class III and Class IV posts/services under the State Government and Public Sector Undertakings, it has been decided that a continuous account of the vacancies arising in Class III and Class IV posts services from year to year may be kept. Thus the 34th vacancy occurring in a particular recruitment year would be earmarked for the Blind, Similarly, the 67th vacancy and 100th vacancy would be reserved for the Deaf and the Orthopaedically handicapped, respectively in cycle of 100 vacancies. In case any of these vacancies are reserved for the S. C. and S. T. candidates or ex-servicemen, the next clearly available vacancy should be reserved for the physically handicapped persons.

            8. The physically handicapped persons are entitled to relaxation of upper age-limit up to 10 years for purpose of appointment to Class III and Class IV posts/services. Nothing in this Resolution shall affect reservations, relaxation of age-limit and other concessions required to be provided for all special categories of persons in accordance with the orders issued by the State Government.

            9. Regarding medical examination of physically handicapped persons, they are to be viewed with utmost sympathy for medical examination. On nomination by the C. D. & R. R. Department, physically handicapped persons should not be subjected to the usual medical examination on first appointment and the question should be decided on the basis of the reports of the Medical Board attached to the C. D. & R. R. Department for the physically handicapped. In case a physically handicapped person appointed in Class III/Class IV post and service is found medically unfit for such post or service he is holding and from which he is proposed to be discharged or has been discharged may, wherever, practicable, be considered for another identical/equivalent post for which he may be found suitable against direct recruitment quota without insisting on the condition of appointment through the C. D. & R. R. Department for this purpose, his previous service under State Government or Public Sector Undertakings should be deducted from his actual age and if the resultant age does not exceed the prescribed maximum age-limit by more than three years, he should be deemed to satisfy the condition of upper age-limit for appointment to the posts or services in question under the State Government. Further, in case of a Government Servant or a servant in Public Sector Undertakings retired on medical grounds, his son/daughter/near relative can be considered for appointment on compassionate grounds if the family of the Orthopaedically handicapped Government Servant is in great distress after his premature retirement.

            10. A consolidated list of jobs in Class III and Class IV posts/services suitable for each of the categories i.e. the blind, the deaf and orthopaedically handicapped which would help the appointing authorities in appointing physically handicapped persons against 3% of the quota as fixed against such posts/services as are available in the various departments under the State Government and Public Sector Undertakings, is enclosed as Annexure.

To

            The Harijan & Tribal Welfare Department/The Education Department.

Subject – Reservation of vacancies for rehabilitation of physically handicapped persons in Class III and Class IV posts/services under the State Government and Public Sector Undertakings.

            The undersigned is directed to say that it has been brought to the notice of this Department that no reservations are being kept for the posts of Teachers other than the Primary School Teachers for the rehabilitation of physically handicapped persons on the ground that no such post has been specified in the annexure appended to this Department Resolution No. 15338, dated 4th May 1981. In this connection attention is invited to paragraph 3 of this Department’s Resolution referred to above read with Para. 2 of this Department’s Resolution No. 16433, dated the 24th July 1978 wherein Government, have taken a decision to keep reservation in all Class III and Class IV posts under the State Government and Public Sector Undertakings for rehabilitation of physically handicapped persons. But the very intention of Government to append the listed jobs as annexure to this Department’s Resolution No. 15338, dated the 4th May 1981 is that the physically handicapped persons can be absorbed in excess of the reserved quota fixed for them in these listed jobs. This was clearly mentioned in Para. 6 of this Department’s Resolution issued on the 4th May 1981.

            In view of the above decision of Government communicated to all concerned there should be no reason as to why the physically handicapped persons shall be deprived of getting the specified reserved quota for their rehabilitation in the post of Secondary School teachers which is Class III post. Besides, Government have also decided that reservation in Class II gazetted posts/services shall be made which are filled up by way of direct recruitment for the physically handicapped candidates which was communicated to all concerned vide this Department’s Resolution No. 16159, dated the 16th July 1982. Hence action should be taken accordingly to adhere the aforesaid decision of Government.

            This disposes of the reference made by Harijan & Tribal Welfare Department vide their U. O. I. No. 103, dated the 28th January 1991.

GOVERNMENT OF ORISSA

RESOLUTION

The 10th January 1997

( Published in the Orissa Gazette on the 12th February 1997 )

Subject – Reservation for ex-servicemen/physically handicapped persons and sports persons in 80 Point Model Roster in services & posts of the State Government.

            The extent of reservation for initial recruitment in the Civil Services and posts of Government of Orissa for the ex-servicemen/physically handicapped persons and the sports persons has been respectively fixed at 3% (vide G. A. Department Notification No. 22586-Gen., dated the 16th October 1985), 3% (vide G. A. Department Resolution No. 15338-Gen., dated the 4th May 1981) and 1% (vide G. A. Department Resolution No. 24808-Gen., dated the 18th November 1985). The reservation for the physically handicapped persons and the sports persons have been further qualified by Rule 4 of the Orissa Civil Services (Reservation of Vacancies for Women in Public Services) Rules, 1994. These rules provide for the reservation of 33% for women in direct recruitment. This means that in case of physically handicapped persons and sports persons for every two men appointed on the basis of the reservation meant for them, there shall be one woman belonging to that category.

            2. The reservation for the abovesaid categories of persons has not been reflected in the 80-Point Model Roster of the State Government prescribed by the erstwhile Tribal Welfare Department in their notification S.R.O. No. 339/94, dated the 21st April 1994 and modified later by the Welfare Department Resolution No. 15599-W., dated the 27th June 1996 for reflecting 27% reservation for the members of the Socially and Economically Backward Classes (S. E. B. C.).

            3. The Government have been pleased to decide that the reservation for the ex-servicemen, physically handicapped persons and sports persons need not be reflected in the Model Roster. Such persons, when selected as per the reservation provided for them, shall claim the vacancies reserved for the categories to which they may belong to, which means that the ex-servicemen, physically handicapped persons/sports persons, if belonging to Scheduled Castes will claim the vacancy reserved for Scheduled Castes; belonging to Scheduled Tribes will claim the vacancy reserved for the Scheduled Tribes and so on. Thus the ex-servicemen/physically handicapped persons, sports persons, who do not belong to either of the reserved categories (i.e. S. C./S. T./ S. E. B. C.) would claim the unreserved vacancies.

            4. The ex-servicemen/physically handicapped persons/sports persons together constitute 7% of the reservation.

Subject – Reservation of vacancies for rehabilitation of physically handicapped persons in Group-B, Group-C and Group-D posts/services under the State Government and in Public Sector Undertakings.

            The undersigned is directed to say that detailed instructions have been issued in G. A. Department Resolution No. 15338, dated the 4th May 1981 and Resolution No. 16189, dated the 16th July 1982 regarding reservation of vacancies for rehabilitation of physically handicapped persons in Class III, Class IV posts and in Class II Gazetted posts and specially Gazetted posts/services under the State Government and in Public Sector Undertakings. Out of 3% of reservation meant for physically handicapped persons 1% has been earmarked for visually handicapped candidates. It was impressed upon all concerned that utmost care should be taken for rehabilitation of physically handicapped persons in above class of posts/services.

            It is matter of great concern that though 610 candidates had been empanelled by the National Institute for the visually Handicapped in 1995, so far only 68 of them have been appointed. The validity of the panel has been extended up to the 31st December 1999. On a representation made by apex level organisation for the blind, Prime Minister has expressed his concern at the slow progress of appointment even though there is 3% reservation for the disabled persons (1% being for visually handicapped) under the Persons with Disabilities Equal Opportunities, Protection of Right and Full Participation) Act, 1995 in all Government establishments.

            It is, therefore, requested that necessary steps may be taken to expedite the appointment of visually handicapped persons against the reservation made for them in accordance with the instructions issued in G. A. Department Resolutions referred to above.

            The subordinate offices under your control may be intimated accordingly.

From

            Shri N. K. Panda,

            Deputy Secretary to Government

To

            The Secretary to the Orissa

            Public Service Commission, Cuttack.

Subject – Question as to whether candidates belonging to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes of other States should also be eligible for reservation of posts as well as concessions in respect of maximum age limits and application of examination fees prescribed in the relevant rules, etc.

Sir,

            With reference to your letter No. 2988-P. S. C., dated the 9th October 1963 on the subject noted above, I am directed to say that concessions given to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes in the matter of appointment to public posts are in discharge of the responsibility of the State Government to undertake measures for the welfare and advancement of the Scheduled Tribes and Scheduled Castes found in the State. In the fitness of things, the State Government can have no similar responsibility for the welfare and advancement of the Scheduled Tribes and Scheduled Castes found in the other States. The reservation of posts for the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes made in the State is influenced by the proportion in which Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes are found in this State. The posts so reserved can have no room for absorbing the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes found all over the country. The fact also remains that what is a Scheduled Caste in one State need not necessarily be a Scheduled Caste in another State.

            In consideration of what is stated above Government are of the view that it will not be proper to throw open the reserved quota in public services to members of Scheduled Castes or Tribes not belonging to this State. Scheduled Castes and Schedule Tribes in other States may compete for appointments in this State in common with the candidates who do not belong to the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes either in this State or in any other States.

            As regards Para. 2 of your letter under reference I may mention that necessary supply of copies of rules in question is understood to have been made to you by the Superintendent, Government Press, Cuttack before 20th November 1963.

Yours faithfully,

N. K. PANDA

GENERAL ADMINISTRATION DEPARTMENT

RESOLUTION

The 23rd December 1992

( Published in the Orissa Gazette on the 31st December 1992 )

Subject – Reservation of vacancies for women’s employment in public services.

            Women in our society face several disabilities both social and economic. These disabilities emanate from gender bias which may be said to be embedded in our culture during centuries of foreign rule. While the need to eliminate discrimination against women has come to be widely accepted, this acceptance is seldom accompanied by specific measures.

            2. From the Census of 1991, it is revealed that even though State’s population is almost equally divided between two sexes i.e. male, and female and the literacy of male and female was 62.37% and 34.40%, respectively. It is also revealed that the representation of women in public services is very insignificant in comparison to their percentage of literacy. The State Government have, through what clearly is a revolutionary effort, ensured larger representation of women in Urban, Local Bodies and Panchyati Raj bodies through statutory provisions in the relevant laws. This needs to be supported by expanding opportunities for employment of women in public services. Therefore, the State Government have decided that there shall be reservation to the extent of 1/3rd of vacancies arising in a year in each of the Class II, Class III including specially declared gazetted and Class IV services/posts filled up by direct recruitment. The details of reservation to be kept for women of each category shall be as follows :-

            3. If in any year, the vacancies reserved for these categories remain unfilled due to non-availability of the eligible women candidates belonging to the relevant category, the unfilled vacancies shall be filled up by male candidates of the same category.

            4. The women candidates are entitled to relaxation of upper age limit up to five years for purpose of appointment to the posts/services, reserved for them.

            5. The provisions of reservation in services/posts so far relating to the category of physically handicapped, sportsmen and general candidates shall come into effect from the date of publication of this Resolution in the Orissa Gazette and the reservation relating to SC/ST shall be effective after the provisions under O. R. V. Act, 1975 are amended by T. W. Department.

            6. The above instructions may be followed by different Departments, Heads of the Departments and District Offices and the relevant recruitment rules framed by the Departments of Government may be amended accordingly.

            7. Concerned Departments of Government shall issue suitable instructions to the Corporations/State Government undertakings under their control to make necessary provision in the recruitment rules, framed by them.

RESOLUTION

 

No.           25384           / Gen. Bhubaneswar, dated   20.09.2005   

            2R/1-34/2004

 

 

Sub:             Reservation of vacancies in favour of Physically Handicapped persons, Sportsmen and Ex-Servicemen in initial recruitment in State Civil Services and posts.

 

 

                   The State Government have reserved 3% of the vacancies for Physically Handicapped persons, 1% for Sportsmen, 3% for Ex-Servicemen in case of initial recruitments in State Civil Services and posts in Resolution No. 15338 dt.04.05.1981, Resolution No. 24808 dt.18.11.1985 and Notification No. 22586 dt.16.10.1985 respectively. No post for the above three categories has been earmarked in the 80 point model roster prescribed by the erstwhile Tribal Welfare Department vide their Notification No.13157 dt.21.04.1994 and as modified vide Resolution No.15599/W., dated.27.06.1996.

 

2.                     The reservation for Physically Handicapped, Sportsmen and Ex-servicemen together constitutes 7% of the vacancies pertaining to Group ‘B’, ‘C’ & ‘D’ (Class II, III and IV) services / posts filled up by direct recruitment – which is roughly 1 in 14 vacancies.
 

                        Instructions have been issued in General Administration Department Resolution No. 748., dt.10.01.1997 to the effect that the Appointing Authorities should take care to ensure that one person belonging to the above three categories is selected for roughly every 14 vacancies filled up so as to ensure that they are recruited proportionately.
 

3.                     It has come to the notice of Government that many appointing authorities accord less priority to Physically Handicapped candidates giving preference to Ex-Servicemen and Sportsmen for the reason that under existing instructions, there is no earmarked roster points for these categories and these categories are being treated by many appointing authorities as one block. With a view to providing fair and adequate representation to the Persons with Disabilities  (Physically Handicapped) in the State Civil Services and posts and as a matter of compliance of the requirements of Section 33 of the Persons with Disabilities (Physically Handicapped)  (Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full Participation) Act, 1995, it is desirable to specify vacancies for each of the above categories.
 

4.                     After careful consideration, Government have been pleased to decide that in the 80 point model roster presently in force, 3 from the category of Persons with Disabilities  (Physically Handicapped), 2 from Ex-servicemen and 1 from Sportsmen shall be appointed in the manner specified in the Schedule. Resolutions / instructions / guidelines issued by this Department earlier stand modified to the above extent.
 

5.                     Persons belonging to Persons with Disabilities  (Physically Handicapped), Sportsmen and Ex-Servicemen categories when selected as per the reservation provided for them, shall claim the vacancies reserved for the categories to which they may belong to which means that Persons with Disabilities  (Physically Handicapped) / Sportsmen / Ex-servicemen, if belonging to schedule Castes will claim the vacancy reserved for Schedule Castes, belonging to Scheduled Tribes will claim the vacancy reserved for the Scheduled Tribes and those belonging to the S & EBC will claim the vacancy reserved for S & EBC. Thus, the Persons with Disabilities  (Physically Handicapped) / Sportsmen / Ex-Servicemen, who do not belong to either of the reserved categories i.e., SC / ST / S & EBC would claim the unreserved vacancies.
 

6.                     The appointing authorities while notifying vacancies to be filled up as per the model roster, shall accord priority for the physically handicapped (persons with disabilities) so that the percentage of reservation for the above category is first achieved.
 

7.                      The vacancies arising in a year pertaining to the above categories shall also be filled up by women candidates belonging to that particular category (except Ex-servicemen) as per provisions contained in OCS (Reservation of vacancies for woman in Public Service) Rules, 1994.
 

8.                       The above instructions may be followed by all the Departments and Heads of Departments and the relevant recruitment rules framed by the Departments of the Government may be amended accordingly.

 

ORDER       :

 

              Ordered that the Resolution be published in the Orissa Gazette. Ordered also that copies of the Resolution be forwarded to all Departments of Government / All Heads of Departments / All Collectors / Registrar,  Orissa  High  Court / Registrar,  Orissa   Administrative  Tribunal / Secretary, Orissa Public Service Commission / Secretary, Orissa Staff Selection Commission / Director, Printing, Stationery and Publication, Orissa, Cuttack / Secretary to Governor  for information and communication to all appointing authorities under them.

ILLUSTRATION

Suppose an Appointing Authority intends to fill up vacancies pertaining to roster point No.10 to 20 in the 80 Point Model Roster. The office processing the roster will do normal checks with respect to SC, ST, UR & SEBC categories on the one hand as well as Women as a category on the other  including any carry forward vacancies, if any. Then it will also determine whether in the roster register (point 1-9) one person from PWD blind (or in exchange other PWD Deaf or PWD OH) category has been earlier appointed or not. It may be noted if any PWD has been appointed, he would have also claimed the vacancy reserved for the categories to which he belongs as SC,ST, SEBC, UR (or as a Women). If in the roster point 1-9, nobody from PWD has been earlier appointed, obviously for range of roster point 10-20, 1 PWD (blind) will need to be advertised.

 

Further, as per the scheme suggested in the above schedule, one person should also be from Ex-servicemen category in the range of roster point from 15-27. Therefore, between 15-20 range of roster points, one person from Ex-servicemen may also be advertised. Once again, the Ex-servicemen will claim the vacancy reserved for any of the categories such as SC,ST, SEBC, UR or Women as the case may be . Thus, in the range of roster point 10-20, appointing authority in this ca se will advertise 1 person from PWD (Blind) and 1 person from Ex-servicemen category. If no PWD (Blind or any other PWD in exchange) is available within 10-20 in the range advertised (10-20) roster point, then this reservation will be carried forward and 1 person from PWD (blind) would  again be advertised in the next  lot of vacancies starting from roster point 21.

    

         It may be noted that the broad approach, which is proposed to be followed, is to keep the primary reservation category of ST, SEBC, and SC as the basic requirement. However, while filling up a particular lot of vacancies it is necessary to first check whether the additional overlapping reservation can also be covered. This can be achieved by constantly trying, in the process of  filling up of a particular lot of vacancies, to cover the overlapped categories i.e., women, persons with disability, ex-servicemen and sports persons. In other words, while filling up any vacancy the  list of available candidates for selection should be scanned to check whether women, PWD, ex-servicemen or sports persons are available among the same. So long as the vacancy of the overlapping category exists, priority has to be given to them while keeping the primary reservations inviolate. In other words, if there is a vacancy of PWD and PWD candidate is available, irrespective of the inter-se merit among different candidates PWD is to be appointed so long as he also fulfils the primary reservation category of SC, ST and SEBC. Obviously if it is not reserved in the primary category or belongs to UR group, the overlapping reservation becomes the primary reservation. If the post is reserved for women and no additional overlapping category reservation is applicable then first preference is to be given to women so long as the quota remains unfulfilled.
