State government employees once resigned would not be permitted to withdraw their resignation later from now on. Orders to this effect amending the service rules were issued on Tuesday.

“No withdrawal of resignation shall be permitted, if the withdrawal is made after the resignation takes effect,” the amended rules said.

“If the resignation of a member of service has been accepted, but has not taken effect and he withdraws his resignation before it has taken effect, he should be deemed to be continuing in service,” another amendment said.

The amendments would affect the employees who were contesting elections. Employees were tendering resignations and contesting elections. If they were defeated, they were withdrawing their resignations and joining the duties. Now, with the amendments of service rules, once their resignation was accepted, they will not be permitted to withdraw.
