Government of the Punjab, Finance Department has issued Notification on 01-10-2019 in connection with Alteration of Date of Birth of a Government Employee. Detail is as under:
No Alteration of Date of Birth of a Government Employee
I am directed to refer to the subject cited above and draw your kind attention towards Rule 21, A(3) of Punjab Civil Servants (Appointment and Condition of Services) Rules, 1974, as added vide notification No. SOR.III-I-14/75 dated 15-11-2000 and Note-2 below Rule 7.3 of Punjab Financial Rules, Volume-I, as amended vide Notification No. FD(FR)11-7/87 dated 25-11-2010, which read as under:
“The date of birth once recorded at the time of joining government service shall be final and there-after no alteration in the date of birth of a civil servant shall be permissible.”
It has been observed that Administrative Departments while forwarding cases for creation of post of OSD to Finance Department, often, consider Date of Birth recorded in CNIC’s instead of Date of Birth recorded at the joining time of government service.
Administrative departments are advised to comply with the provisions of Rule ibid, while forwarding cases for creation of OSD posts for financial assistance of family of deceased civil servant.
Special thanks to Mr. Qadeer Ahmad for sending the copy of the Notification of Alteration of Date of Birth of a Government Employee.
