NEW DELHI: Faced with the problems of new central educational institutions and scientific institutions set up after 2004 for attracting suitable faculty and nonfaculty personnel working in the Central Government, the Human Resource Development Ministry has decided to relax the conditions governing mobility of such staff.
As per the relaxed norms, the faculty, officers and other employees, who are already on deputation to the newly set up central educational institutions and who are covered under the CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972, are entitled to either join or continue work in the new educational institutions on longterm deputation basis for a period of 10 years at a stretch without seeking any specific approval.
All the posts in the new educational institutions filled on deputation or foreign services basis would be deemed to have been exempted from the rule of immediate absorption for the total period of deputation.
During the period of this extended leave of absence not exceeding the date of their superannuation, such employees will have the option to retain their lien with the department from which they proceeded on deputation.
Officials in the Human Resource Development Ministry said this was necessitated to allay the fears of pension among the officers who are covered under the CCS(Pension) Rules.
