CLARIFICATION REGARDING EMPLOYEES IN BS-16 ARE GAZETTED OR NON-GAZETTED

Government of the Punjab, Finance Department issued a clarification regarding employees awarded time scale up-gradation to BS-16 is to be treated as Gazetted or Non-Gazetted.

In continuation to this Department's letter No.FD.PC. 39-14/77(Pt-IV)(APCA/2008)(Provl), dated 08.01.2016 (copy enclosed), it is stated that on grant of Time Scale Personal Up-gradation, following questions have arisen in this regard:


(i) As to whether, a Govt. servant on award of Time Scale Personal
Up-gradation to BS-16 is to be treated as Gazetted or non-Gazetted? 


(ii) As to whether the employees on award of Time Scale Personal Up-gradation to BS-16 are required to submit their Charge Assumption Reports or otherwise?

The case has been examined in the Finance Department and it is again clarified that the term "Gazetted and Non-Gazetted" has since been dispensed with under Rule 5 of the Punjab Civil Servants (Change in Nomenclature of Services & Abolition of Classes) Rules, 1974. Now the terms "Officer and Official" exist and the same are defined in the Punjab Financial Rules Vol-l as under:

1.28-A." Officer" means Government Servant holding a post in National Pay Scale No.16 or higher National Pay Scale.


1.28-B."Official" means a Government Servant holding post in National Pay Scales No.1 to 15.

Therefore, the Government Servants who are drawing their pay & allowances in BS-01 to BS-15 are "OFFICIALS" and those who are drawing their pay & allowances in BS-16 and above are "OFFICERS", irrespective of the mode through which they have been granted the respective pay scales.
