In the letters referred above, mention has been made “of an employee holding a higher post on regular basis and has completed a minimum period of 24 months in that higher post” / “Government Servant holding a post on regular basis.”

In this regard clarification was sought from the Establishment Directorate, who have clarified as follows:-

“ Vide E(NG)’s letter no. E(NG)1-98/CN5/i. dated 02,08.2001 probation period is now 12 months in each grade (non-gazetted staff). Therefore, for the purpose of protection of pay as circulated by F(E)’s instructions on own request transfer from higher post to _lower post, “regular” service will denote 12 months completion of service (i.e, probation period) in the higher post without any adverse action, unless duration of probation has specifically been provided for a particular post in rules ”.

As mentioned further in Establishment Directorate’s clarification, this will not operate to re-open past /settled cases.
