Violation of deputation rules
Appointment to a post on deputation basis is made for a period normally specified in the Recruitment Rules of the deputation post, unless the period of deputation is extended by the Government in terms of prevailing instructions. After expiry of such deputation period, the Government servant is required to revert back to the parent organization / office. The Guidelines regulating premature repatriation from Central Deputation also provide for repatriation to parent cadre in certain cases such as to avail benefit of promotion. However, there are no specific instructions which require a Government servant on deputation to be reverted back to the parent organization / office before retirement only to facilitate fixation of pensionary benefits.
Rule 33 of Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1972 and Rule 2 of AIS (Death-cum-Retirement Benefits) Rules, 1958 prescribe the emoluments to be taken into account for calculating pension.
This was stated by the Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Development of North-Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh in a written reply to a question by Shri C.R. Patil in the Lok Sabha today (3/8/2016).
