The non-admissibility of job for the legal heirs of the civil servant invalidated/incapacitated from Govt. Service in Category-B has also been confirmed vide your office letter No. SOR-III(S&GAD)2-21/2016 dated 03.03.2021. 

In the light of the afore mentioned position question arises that what will be the status of the job holders who have been appointed on the basis of invalidation/incapacitation of their parents/spouse under Category-B. In the light of the clarifications mentioned above in the subject matter and what will be the effecting date for non-entitlement of job under Rule 17-A under Category-B also. 


Government of the Punjab, S&GAD (Regulation Wing) Clarify that;


The matter has been examined in the Regulations Wing, S&GAD and it is observed that no specific category of invalidation / incapacitation has been mentioned in Rule 17-A of the Punjab Civil Servants (Appointment and Conditions of Service) Rules, 1974. However, retirement on medical grounds in category-B does not fall in the type of permanent disability / invalidation. Hence, the Regulations Wing, S&GAD is of the view that children / wife of the officials who retired on medical grounds in category "B" are not entitled to get the benefit of job under Rule 17-A. There is tendency of getting oneself declared invalidated on the verge of retirement so that a child may get employment under Rule 17-A. There is need to curb this misuse of the facility under the Rule ibid. Hence, it is informed that a committee has been constituted by the Chief Secretary to formulate recommendations regarding implications of Rule 17-A ibid. As and when its recommendations are received, the same would be updated.
