OFFICE MEMORANDUM



Subject :        Probation in various Central Civil Services.

       The undersigned is directed to say that the period of probation to be prescribed for different postslservices in Central Government have been laid down in this Department’s O.M. No. F.44/1/59-Ests.(A) dated 15.4.1959 as amended from time to time. Although instructions exist to the effect that save for exceptional reasons probation should not be extended for more than a year and no employee should be kept on probation for more than double the normal period apart from instructions for timely action on completion of probationlconfirmation, these are not invariably followed.

2. With a view to prevent Government servants from becoming possible victims of arbitrary actions or inordinate delay in considering completion of probation / confirmation, the existing instructions on provisions regarding probation in the servicelrecruitment rules relating to Central Civil Services and Posts have been reviewed. It has now been decided that :-

(I)         If during the period of probation, a probationer has not undergone the requisite training course or passed the requisite departmental examinations if anybrescribed or has not been on dutyitraining for at least 75% of the probation period, the period of probation may be extended by such period or periods as may be necessary subject to the condition that the total period of probation does not exceed double the prescribed period of probation except in the cases mentioned in (ii) below:-

II)        the period of probation may be extended for such period as the Central Government may think fit in the circumstances of the case in respect of a probationer who is:

a)        under suspension;

b)        against whom disciplinary proceedings are pending; or

c)        against whom prosecution for criminal charge is pending.

III)        Where a probationer who has completed the period of probation to the satisfaction of the Central Government is required to be confirmed, he shall be confirmed in the SewicelPost at the end of his period of probation, having been completed satisfactorily. In such cases, where no order extending the probation period has been issued and no order of confirmation is issued within one year of completion of the prescribed period of probation, the probationer would be deemed to be confirmed in the servicelpost.

3.        In the Service/Recruitment Rules for all Central Civil Services and Posts, in addition to the period of probation, wherever prescribed. corresponding provisions, as in para 2 above, may be incorporated in consultation with this Department in the light of the above instructions.

4.         The Hindi Version of this O.M. will follow.
