Seniority of persons who are transferred and absorbed directly without being on deputation.
Some cases has been received in this department seeking clarification whether the (DOP&T) O.M.No.20020/7/80-Estt. (D) Dated 29.5.1986 and No.20011/1/2000-Estt.(D) Dated 27th March, 2001 ] in the case of a person who is initially taken on deputation and absorbed later, would be applicable also for persons who are transferred and absorbed directly without being on deputation i.e. where the recruitment rules provide for recruitment through absorption. The matter has been considered and it has been decided that, in such cases also the provision as contained in the afore-said O.Ms would be applicable i.e. the date he has been holding the post on deputation or the date from which he has been appointed on the regular basis to the same or equivalent grade in his parent department, whichever is earlier.
