Sub: Clarification in Verification of Membership of KVS, Teaching staff Associations – Regarding
Please refer to your office letter no. F. 230183-71/2020-21-KVS/Jaipur dated 09.07.2021 wherein it has been stated that some of the teachers in Kendriya Vidyalayas under your administrative jurisdiction have submitted their options in favour of more than one teaching staff associations and has sought clarification about deciding the status of their membership.
2. Matter has been examined in KVS (Hars.) with reference to the extant rules published in the Manual on Establishment and Administration wherein’ the Gol vide OM No. 3-12/94-JCA, dated 10.03.1995 under “Check-off system of verification” has clarified as under-
“3.2 it has already been laid down that under the check-off system, a Government servant can subscribe to only one association. However, references have been received from various Departments that employees are giving their options in favour of more than one association. It is clarified that the options of an employee in favour of more than one association will be treated as invalid and will not be taken into account for any associations”
3. Also KVS (Recognition of Service Associations} Regulations, 1995. Appendix XLII (A), Annexure-A under para 4 provides as under:-
“Under the Check-off system, an employee may subscribe to only ONE Association…”
It is, therefore. clarified that the options of an employee exercised in favor of more than one staff association will be treated as “invalid” and will not be taken into account for any associations.
This issues with the approval of the Commissioner, KVS.
