A Govt Employee Must Always Apply for Jobs Through Proper Channel

A Government Servant must always apply through proper channel for another job. It is very important for a Govt Servant. If he/she does not do so then he/she will have to repent on it in future when he/she will have to face the loss of previous service. If an employee doesn't apply for a job through proper channel his previous service is not counted and neither is he entitled to pay protection. In this way he/she not only loses his/her previous service but also he/she will not be able to protect his previous pay. If he/she is drawing some Adhoc Relief Allowances, he/she will also lose the benefit of these allowances. He/she will only draw his fresh pay and allowances in this situation.

I have seen that many employees did not know the reality of “Applying through Proper Channel”, they applied directly for a new job and in this way their previous pay and allowances were not counted. In the same way they also could not able to count their previous service. An employee of Punjab Department did not apply through proper channel and his previous service about 5 years was not counted and thus also his pay was not protected.

Here is an other important point that when ever you relieve from your previous department to join new one, always get your LPC, Relieving Report and also the Service Book duly countersigned by the concerned CMA/Accounts Office.

    I worked in an FG department for two years in BPS-14.Then I applied through proper channel in another department of FG for BPS-17 and got selected.I was relived from my parent department on 04.07.2014.However,5th and 6th July were closed holidays being Saturday and Sunday,so I joined my new department on 07.07.2014.Hence there is two days gap between my relieving and joining.My question is,if its OK and my service will be considered continuous or is there something I must do to prevent difficulties later?

    Dear Sir/Mam,
    1. I served in Army Welfare Trust for 14+ years. The service was of regular type (initially they mentioned in appointment that the post is likely to continue for 5 years but later they withdrawn this sentence) and subject to other terms and conditions it was supposed to continue till superannuation age i.e. 60 years.
    2. I applied on a FG permanent post in FPSC in 2007 through proper channel and was selected and joined in 2010. Before joining I clearly requested the new Department, FPSC and the Establishment Division regarding counting of my previous service and pay benefits and clarified that AWT is an autonomous body under GHQ and its Board of Directors comprised serving officers as well. AWT is registered since 1971 under the societies registration Act 1860 for the welfare of ex-servicemen and families of shaheeds of Pakistan Army.
    3. Now my present department has asked me three questions:-
    a. Provide a documentary proof that AWT is an autonomous body.
    b. Whether AWT is funded through General Revenues?...
    c. Whether previous service will be counted as service in Present Department?
    My possible replies are:-
    a. i) AWT's link with Pak Army website and AWT's own Website ii) Selection Board Proceedings iii) Service Confirmation from Board of Director's resolution. I am unable to collect GHQ document creating the AWT in 1971...
    b. AWT was funded from GP Fund of Army Men in 1971 and then onward it is fund generating organization for GHQ and GHQ also supports through LAND, Business etc but all these can not be proved being RESTRICTED documents.
    4. Since 2010, I am pursuing pay protection and service inclusion case but could not succeeded it. Plz guide me how can I proceed...

    • Dear Sayyad, you can apply to your previous department for the verification of the same and u can also do this through proper channel. I hope they will verify it. Thanks

    Dear Shumaila,

    Thank you for posting this valuable information. I am working in a Federal Govt. Department on pay scale of BS-17 and I want to apply through proper channel in another FG department on same pay scale but my department is saying that I can not apply through proper channel on same pay scale therefore they are not forwarding my application. They are also not providing me any copy of the rule. Do you know if any rule is available which prevents me to apply for the job of same pay scale?

    Thanks

    • Dear Ahsan I have also heard the same but I have also not the copy of the same Thanks

    • Zafar says:

      this rule applies only to CSS candidates where they can't apply in the same scale to a lower or same service group. however unfortunately our baabu culture is quoting this rule in other departments which is by no means relevant. threat them of going to court and I hope y will oblige.

  7. Ramesh says:

    but sir our company not give NOC to anyone this is not our company policy. dear sir tell me may i can apply without NOC.

    • Dear Ramesh, you can confirm the same from your office but if you apply without NOC then u ll have to bear the loss of previous service and pay protection especially if you have much service.

  8. Ramesh says:

    Dear sir i doing peramanet job in PSU company but i want to do railway job but my company not give NOC Pls sir tell me what i do.

    • Dear Ramesh, you should get NOC from your concerned department. You should request them to issue the same. Otherwise if your service is less than u can apply direct but in this way you will not get the benefits of the previous service. Thanks

    • Zafar says:

      if you are applying through FPSC then send them a copy of your NOC application. they will deal with them.

  10. Hussain Ali says:

    AoA! Dear Miss Shumaila! Can you provide me any precedence of pay fixation from SPS to BPS... I shall be highly grateful...

  11. Hussain Ali says:

    AoA! Dear Miss Shumaila.... I have joined a BPS based department from a SPS based organization. Can you provide me any precedence of pay fixation from SPS to BPS, please.

    • Dear Hussain, it is so simple. If your previous service and pay is protected. Then you can fix ur pay to next above and also add 1 premature increment. Suppose you were drawing 10,000/- basic pay in SPS. just see the same pay in your concerned BPS and there is no 10,000/- then take the next above plus 1 premature increment if the same pay 10,000/- exists in BPS then add 2 increments. Thanks

      • Hussain Ali says:

        I am thankful to your response but I require a case precedence regarding pay fixation from SPS to BPS.... AGPR is not protecting my pay and I need a precedence to contest my case in Finance Division.....

    Article 418(b) of CSR protect the person who can not apply through proper channel "Resignation from a service to take up an other public service,service in which count is not resignation from service" he will mention in his resign about new post. If there is break of service due to late joing leave can be conciser as EOL by the authority

    Dear Madam!

    Asslam o Alaikum!

    Thanks for your useful tips.

    1. I joined Education & Literacy Department (Govt of Sindh) as a Junior School Teacher BPS-14 (3 Years Contract) on 13-01-2010, after passing recruitment test conducted by Sindh University Testing Centre. Meanwhile, I applied for the post of High School Teacher last year. I mentioned my present job in my application form. I also tried to apply "through proper channel" after getting my application forwarded by my head master but D.O.E office clerical staff told me to apply after passing the recruitment test (NTS) and getting posting order. NTS conducted the test on 23.12.2012 and I passed it. Now I have got my HST Offer Letter on 12.10.2013. I had submitted my file with Police Verification and Medical Fitness Certificate for further process and now waiting for the Posting Order.
    2. Our 3 years contract period has been completed on 12.01.2013. We have not been regularized by the department while Sindh Assembly had already passed the bill on this matter and governer of sindh issued notification. We are getting our salaries regularly with all the allowances and annual increments but not being given the 15% Adhoc Relief Allowance announced in the Budget of 2013 (by the district accounts officer, reason being contract employee).
    Please suggest me
    1. What to do now to apply "Through Proper Channel"?
    2. My previous service will be counted while I have completed my 3 years contract period?
    3. Is there any "Rule" that 15% Adhoc Relief Allowance announced in the Budget of 2013, is not applicable to contract employees?

    Thanking youvery much in anticipation!

    • Dear Dawn of Peace, Your previous service will be counted if you applied through proper channel and 15% ARA is for all the employees including contract employees. I know there is no mention in the Notification of the contract employees. But u must be given the same as there is written all the employees and in other provinces it is also granted.

    I am a government employee in a general insurance company. I am on probation period till 17th Dec 2013. Also there is a bond for 4 years duration. I wish to apply for RBI B grade exam. What should be the proper procedure for applying for it? In case of selection, will I be able to get my bond transferred to RBI and how should I go about getting and NOC for appearing in the interview if I reach that stage? Thank you in advance.

    • Dear Shah I am not aware of the rulings for the same. But if you apply through proper channel ur previous service and pay will be protected.

    • jahangir says:

      ur Bond can not be transferred to other department further u should have applied through properly and ur department would have forwarded ur application with NOC but now u can apply through proper channel by mentioning that u have already (in advance) applied.

  19. Zafar says:

    Dear,

    Please tell me if I can apply in the same scale in another govt organization through proper channel, as I am a permanent employee.
    Secondly, if I get a chance to join in private sector then how should I resign from the current job?

    • Dear Zafar, you cannot apply through proper channel for the same scale job. If you want to resign then submit your application/resignation for a period of 15 days notice and it will be approved in about 15 days.

  20. Jehanzeb Shah says:

    Dear Madam
    I was working as LDC (BPS-7) in MOH since 06/2004. In Marach 2011 i was appointed as Assistant in BPS-14 (Through proper channel). My Basic Pay in LPC was Rs.4480 while initil pay in BPS-14 was 4920. My salary was fixed in initial stage and no premature increment was grant to me. As a result i got no benefit of my previous service. my salary is equal to the new appointee despite of 7 years serive.
    my question is that Am i eigible for premature increment or not.

    2nd question is that i was kept at the bottom of seniority list becasue i joined in the last as my precous department relieved me later. and those fresh who had not applied through proper channel, joined on the next day of their appointment and i want not able to join on the next day because of not been relieved by my previous deptt. so not got any benfit of previous service. and thus junior got seniority.

    my 3rd question is that in the light of Finance Divsion Notification dated 31.05.2013; how am i eligible for the premature increment in BPS-7 or BPS-14

    thanking you in anticipation

    Regards

    Jehan zeb Sahah
    Assistant (HEC)

    • Dear just see these calculations: 4920-4480= 440/- the increment of BPS-14 at that time was Rs. 380/- as the difference of these two pays is more than the increment of BPS-14 that is why u r not eligible for premature increment.
      Dear it is ur bad luck that ur department relieved u later and the fresh employees joined earlier than u and they became senior than u.
      in 2004 LDC was in BPS-05 not in BPS-7 plz explain it.

    wht is the procedure of applying through proper channel ? Or agar mene kisi job me apply krty waqt through proper chanel aply nh kr saka to kia test yaa interw ke waqt apply kr skta hu through proper channel ?

    • Dear if ur office agrees u can send ur application through proper channel if there is no much laps of time.
      The procedure of applying through proper channel is that 1st u send a advance copy to the concerned department where to apply for job and in the same time you send your application for job through your office/department. It is better u attached the copy of the covering letter to the application that r u sending in advance. If there is concern NOC then it too send through ur office.

  35. farukh Memon says:

    agar meri service 16 grade me 5 sal ho wid 5 increments or me through proper chanel apply krun for 17 grde or agar mjhe 17 m job mil jaye, to 17 ki pay me meri 16 grde wali increments kis tarah count hogi means any formula ?

    • suppose ur pay is 22000 and u join in BPS 17 then ur pay will be fixed by considering ur pay 22000. Your pay will not be less than 22000 and u ll alsl get premature increment. if u not apply through proper channel then ur pay will be the initial of BPS-17
