OFFICE MEMORANDUM
North Block, New Delhi
Dated August 31, 2015
Subject: Representation from Government servant on service matters – reiteration of instructions – regarding.
The undersigned is directed to refer to O.M. of even number dated 6th June, 2013 wherein instructions have been issued on submission of representation by Government servants about their service matters. In spite of these instructions, it has been observed that Government servants including officers/ officials of para military forces and Army personnel continue to represent directly to the Prime Minister, Minister, Secretary (P) and
other higher authorities, directly.
2. As per the existing instructions, wherever, in any matter connected with his service rights or conditions, a Government servant wishes to press a claim or to seek redressal of a grievance, the proper course for him is to address his immediate official superior, or Head of his office, or such other authority at the appropriate level who is competent to deal with the matter in the organisation.
3. Such submission of representations directly to other authorities by- passing the prescribed channel of communication, has to be viewed seriously and appropriate disciplinary action should be taken against those who violate these instructions. This can rightly be treated as an unbecoming conduct attracting the provisions of Rule 3 (1) (iii) of the Central Chill Services (Conduct) Rules, 1964. It is clarified that this would include all forms of communication including through e-mails or public grievances portal etc.
4. Attention in this connection is also invited to the provision of Rule 20 of CCS (Conduct) Rules, 1964 prohibiting Government servants from bringing outside influence in respect of matter pertaining to his service matter. Representation by relatives of Government servant is also treated as outside influence as clarified vide MHA OM No. F. 25/21/63-Estt.(A) dated 19.09.1963
5. It is reiterated that these instructions may be brought to the notice of all Govt servants including officers/ officials of para military forces and member of armed forces and action taken against those who violate these instructions.

POST MASTER BLOG WISHES TO THE PROMOTED OFFICIALS.


RBI GRANTS "PAYMENT BANK" LICENCE IN PRINCIPLE TO DEPARTMENT OF POSTS(DoP)

The Reserve Bank on Wednesday granted ‘in-principle’ approval to 11 entities, including Reliance Industries, Aditya Birla Nuvo, Vodafone and Airtel, to set up payments banks and proposed such licences ‘on tap’ in future.

The other entities which have been given ‘in-principle’ approval are Department of Posts, Cholamandalam Distribution Services, Tech Mahindra, National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL), Fino PayTech, Sun Pharma’s Dilip Shantilal Shanghvi and PayTM’s Vijay Shekhar Sharma.

“The ‘in-principle’ approval granted will be valid for a period of 18 months, during which time the applicants have to comply with the requirements under the guidelines and fulfil the other conditions as may be stipulated by the Reserve Bank,” RBI said in a statement.

Going forward, RBI said the central bank would use the learning from this licensing round to appropriately revise the guidelines and move to give licences more regularly, virtually “on tap”.

Payment banks allow mobile firms, supermarket chains, and others to cater to individuals and small businesses.

The Payments Bank will be set up as a differentiated bank and shall confine its activities to acceptance of demand deposits, remittance services, Internet banking and other specified services.

Payments Banks will initially be restricted to holding a maximum balance of Rs. 1 lakh per individual customer.

They will be allowed to issue ATM/debit cards as also other prepaid payment instruments, but not the credit cards.

These banks can also distribute non-risk sharing simple financial products like mutual funds and insurance products.

They will not be allowed to undertake lending services and non resident Indians will not be allowed to open accounts.

RBI further said that on being satisfied that the 11 applicants have complied with the requisite conditions as part of ‘in-principle’ approval, it would consider granting to them a licence for commencement of banking business.

Until a regular licence is issued, the applicants can not undertake any banking business, the central bank added.

Draft guidelines for licencing of payments banks were released for public comments and the final guidelines were issued on November 27, 2014.

A total of 41 applicants had applied for payments banks.

Differentiated banking entails going beyond the current universal banking framework to serve specific purposes.

The move to allow such differentiated banks came after RBI had found just two entities — infra player IDFC and micro-lender Bandhan from among over two dozen applicants — eligible for setting up commercial banks.

The central bank issued this limited set of licences on April 1, 2014, after a decade. Both applicants are yet to begin operations even after a year as they have time till October.

Commercial banks comprise 27 public sector banks, 20 private, 44 foreign, 4 local area banks and 56 regional rural banks.

On the selection process, RBI said a detailed scrutiny was undertaken by an External Advisory Committee (EAC) under the chairmanship of Nachiket Mor, Director, Central Board of the Reserve Bank of India.

The recommendations of the EAC were an input to an Internal Screening Committee (ISC), consisting of the Governor and four Deputy Governors.
