I am going to tell you an important topic of resignation from Govt service. Many employees who find other jobs and they cannot continue their service are in a habitual of leaving the department without proper procedure this may cause a great penalty for such employees. This is also a violation of rules. I am going to inform you that there are two categories of employees. The first ones are those who are at their probation period and the other ones are those who have gone through the period of probation and they have become permanent. I will discuss all these categories in detail:
Resignation of Permanent Govt Servant
Permanent service is a result of a bilateral contract for the termination of which the consent of both the parties’ i.e employee and employer is required. If a permanent Govt servant wants to terminate his/her service he/she first will produce his/her written resignation that will be forwarded to the higher authorities for acceptance. During this period the Govt servant will continue his/her service until the resignation is accepted. The reason is that as the employee and employer are both bonded with bilateral agreement that is why the consent of both the parties is required. The employee will continue his/her service till the employer is agreed. During this period the employee cannot make himself/herself absent from duty without proper leave other wise he/she incurs a penalty prescribed for such default which may be dismissal in certain cases.
Resignation of Temporary Govt Servant
If a temporary employee intends to resign from Govt service he/she will deposit a 14 days pay or he/she will give a 14 days notice. During this period he/she will remain on duty and cannot make himself/herself absent from duty without proper leave. He will continue his/her service until the resignation is accepted by the employer.
