State government has taken note of some departments still resorting to exigency appointments such as Mali, Chowkidar and Peon on contingency basis.

P&AR department through an office memorandum issued by commissioner & secretary Dinesh Kumar, reiterated that such contingency appointments, without publicly inviting applications, whether on regular basis, ad-hoc, fixed, casual or work-charged were irregular and illegal.

The government stated that no appointment of any sort without sanctioned/vacant posts would be made and appointment on contract basis was banned.

Therefore, the government has stated that proposals for any new/fresh appointments by any departments for every category of post be submitted to the Administrative Heads of Department (AHoDs) for prior approval for due process of recruitment by the NPSC/departmental recruitment board (DRB). 

It stated that AHoDs shall be responsible to verify the availability of the sanctioned post and duly authenticate each post vacancy against the unique employee code generated by the Personal Information Management System (PIMS) or the post creation order in case of new post. 

Any appointment order issued without following the due process and without the unique employee code from PIMS shall be considered invalid, null and void, the OM stated.

The state government has also directed that Personal Information Management System cell P&AR department not to register any appointments made without observing the due process and the finance department not to grant fund provision on salaries head against the particular department during the revised estimate.
