Sub: Creation of fresh posts in the banned categories under the delegated powers.
A complete ban has been imposed on engaging additional staff on daily wage basis in different Ministries/Departments vide this Department’s O.M. No. F. 14 (24)-E. (Co-ord.)/74, dated the 30th August, 1974. This ban has again been reiterated in this Department’s O.M. No. F.14, (4)-E.(Co-ord)/77, dated the 27th May, 1977.
2. The Department of Personnel & AR. have also drawn attention to these ban orders vide their O.M. No. 49014/4/77.Estt. (C), dated the 2151 March, 1979. In spite of the aforesaid instructions, it appears that casual employees are still being appointed as clerks, stenographers, storekeepers, etc., on monthly rates of pay and allowances like regular employees for long period with breaks in between. It is understood that these appointments are made in posts created under the financial powers delegated to the Ministries/Departments. The delegated powers cannot be resorted to when there is a general ban on creation of posts. All Ministries/Department are accordingly requested to ensure that the ban instructions are strictly adhered to and that no posts in the banned, categories are sanctioned or casual staff for banned categories engaged under delegated powers. Suitable instructions it this regard may also be issued to the organizations/offices under the administrative control of the Ministries / Departments.
