Sub.: Awarding of Marks in APARs in Selections/LDCEs held for Promotion from Group ‘C’ to Group ‘B’ Posts.
Ref.: Board’s letter nos. E(GP)87/2/123 dt.19.9.1988, E(GP)89/2/30 dt.29.9.89 & E(GP)2000/2/95 dt.16.01.2001.
In terms of instructions contained in Board’s letter no. E(GP)87/2/123 dt.19.9.1988, it has been laid down that assessment of APARs in Selections/LDCEs held for promotion to Group ‘B’ posts should be based on confidential reports of the last five years. Furthermore, in terms of Board’s aforementioned letter dt.29.9.1989, procedure to be adopted for covering the deficiency of APARs through lower grade or previous years (other than the years of reckoning) has been prescribed.
2. Recently, a case has come to light where an employee appearing in LDCE, has been awarded ‘Zero’ marks against a deficient APAR he has not earned for the initial training period. Therefore, it has now been decided that apart from the procedure laid down in terms of aforementioned instructions, assessment of APARs in Selections/LDCEs held for promotion to Group B posts in case a Group ‘C’ employee fulfilling the prescribed eligibility criteria, has not earned APARs of requisite number of years either on being initial training, study leave etc.; in such a situation average of APARs of all available years should be reckoned for arriving at gradings of the requisite year(s) for which APAR is not written. In this regard, an illustration with fictitious data is enclosed for ease of understanding.
