Onus of confirmation lies with the Central Government employees
In Parliament Dopt Minister Shri Dr.Jitendra Singh said in a written reply to a question on 5.8.2014 regarding confirmation of Central Government employees after probationary period.
He said, the onus of confirmation lies with the Organisation concerned. As per the extant instructions on satisfactory completion of the period of probation or extension thereof, the Government i.e the employer/Organisation may confirm a temporary Government servant from the date of completion of the period of probation or extension thereof.
As per extant instructions, the confirmation of a Government Servant is delinked from the availability of permanent vacancy in the grade. In other words, an officer who has successfully completed the probation, as prescribed under relevant rules, may be considered for confirmation.
Under Rule 23 of Central Civil Services (Classification, Control & Appeal) Rules, 1965, an employee has the right to appeal against any Order which denies or varies to his disadvantage his pay, allowances, pension or other conditions of service as regulated by rules or by the service agreement.
As per extant instructions save for exceptional reasons, probation should not be extended for more than a year and in no circumstance an employee should be kept on probation for more than double the normal period.
