ASSURED CAREER PROGRESSION - scheme restored The Rajasthan government on Thursday decided to restore the assured career scheme of the previous time frame and amend the rules for deduction of housing allowance and maternity leave for its employees, who were given the benefit of the Sixth Pay Commission’s recommendations this past month. The State government, in its orders of September 12, had extended the first, second and third assured career progression on completion of 10, 20 and 30 years respectively of service. The previous time frame for assured career progression was 9, 18 and 27 years. An official release here on Thursday stated that the State government had reconsidered its decision and decided to restore the original time frame of 9, 18 and 27 years for giving selection scale of salary under assured career progression to the employees. The release pointed out that the Central government was still giving the facility on completion of 10, 20 and 30 years of service.

The salary hike for the employees has been brought into effect from September 1.

The decision will be applicable to the employees presently availing themselves of the leave as well.The release said the Rajasthan Service Rules would be amended shortly for implementing these decisions.
