Due to paucity of time, the Circles on receipt of applications shall issue hall tickets to the eligible candidates to appear in the examination after consulting the CMC telephonically regarding the Roll Number(s) to be assigned and the venue for examination. It should be immediately followed by a written communication to CMC indicating the names, Roll Numbers so assigned along with a copy of the application submitted by the candidates.

Departmental proceedings against Govt Employees - consultation with the UPSC for advice

Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions
(Department of Personnel 8 Training)

New Delhi, 10th May, 2011


Subject:- Departmental proceedings against Government servants - consultation with the Union Public Service Commission for advice.

The undersigned is directed to say that this Department has been impressing upon various Ministries / Departments to complete the disciplinary proceedings by minimizing avoidable delays. In para 3.11.10 of the 4th report of the 2nd ARC titled "Ethics in governance", it has been observed from a sample study that the Administrative Departments take more than 2/3rd of the time taken to process the case under the CCS(CCA) Rules. In the sample study, the Inquiry Officers were found to be taking about 17% of the time and the UPSC about 5% of the time to conclude their findings. This Department has issued OM No.3901111212009-Estt.(B) dated 14.9.2010 reiterating that the requisite details in the proforma to be sent to the UPSC are properly filled up and sent with the relevant documents so that there does not arise occasion for the UPSC to make a back reference to the Ministries / Departments for the deficiencies found by the Commission in the papers sent to them.

2. The UPSC has brought to the notice of this Department that during the year 2010-11 the Commission had to return the case to the concerned Departments in more than 40% of the cases on account of procedural / documentary deficiencies. A list of the common deficiencies observed by the Commission in these cases are / given. in the Annexure.  All Ministries / Departments are requested to ensure that the deficiencies indicated in the Annexure are not repeated in the proposals being sent to the UPSC for seeking its advice on disciplinary matters.

3. Attention of Ministries / Departments is also drawn to this Department's OM  No.3901111212009-Estt.(B) dated 16.11.2010 wherein it has been requested that in cases where the Courts are being apprised of the time taken in finalizing a disciplinary proceeding through affidavit, information in regard to the pendency of  the matter before the UPSC may be correctly projected. The average time taken by the Commission in tendering advice in disciplinary proceedings is about 4 to 6 months. The Commission tender its advice in about 3 months in those cases where priority is attached due to direction of Court. In such cases, in order to sypedite scrutiny of the cases a single window system on pilot basis had been introduced in the UPSC from September 2010 and initially 9 Ministries / Departments were included in the single window system. The Commission has now decided to extend the single window system to all other Ministries / Departments whose offices are situated in Delhi for submission of disciplinary cases involving court cases. Under this system, a Ministry / Department while referring the disciplinary cases to the Commission for advice, is required to authorize a representative, not below the level  of Under Secretary, to hand over the case to the designated officer in the UPSC, with prior appointment. The cases received from a Ministry / Department are initially scrutinized on the spot, in terms of information sought in the Proforma check list issued by this Department. Only cases which are complete as per the check list are
accepted by the Commission for further scrutiny and examination. Incomplete cases are returned at the counter itself after pointing out the deficiencies. In UPSC, the  case records are to be handed over to the Under Secretary (S-1),(Tel No.23387346123098591-Ext.4342) in Room No.10-A located in the Annexure Building of the Commission. The case records should explicitly indicate the status of the CATICourt cases, the fact regarding the time limit for disposal of the case if any and extension sought for providing at least 3-4 months of time to the Commission for
disposal of the case.

4. All Ministries / Departments are requested to adhere to the above procedure for submission of disciplinary cases involving Court cases to the Commission through single window system.

How to Protect your Data ?

It's a human tendency to lock your home whenever you go out; it makes you feel protected. But what about data what you have saved on your computer? Do you lock it when you transfer it from your computer? Given the threats lurking online - hackers, phishers, identity thieves and the like - you would do well to encrypt your data of you are using the internet to share crucial information with others. This ensures privacy and prevents it from getting hacked. Even if someone succeeds in stealing an encrypted file, he or she will be unable to misuse it unless the key to decode the content of that file is also stolen alongside. Then there are the monetary transactions online and the personal information shared on the Internet. To protect users, the file encryption process is a crucial part of an efficient computer security system. File encryption or data encryption is a process of transforming your confidential information into an unreadable format which cannot be accessed without the correct password or key. Though there are third-party encryption software available like TrueCrypt in the market, you can also use the lesser known, built-in feature of Windows to secure your files. Here to go about this.

How to Encrypt a File? 

1. Right click on a file you want to encrypt. Click the 'Properties' option at the bottom of the context menu.
2. Click the 'Advanced' button located under 'General' tab in the 'Properties' dialog box.

3. Click the 'Encrypt Contents to Secure Data' option and click 'OK'.

4. If the file is in a folder you will be prompted with an 'Encryption Warning' message. If this is the case, click the 'Encrypt the File Only' option and click 'OK'.


  • You can use EFS (Encrypting File System) to encrypt files on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Ultimate, and Windows 7 Enterprise. The filesystem should be NTFS; it won't work on FAT32.
  •  Select the certificate of the user whom you want to add (to the access list of the encrypted file), and then click OK. You can do this by clicking Properties -> Advanced -> EFS settings.

  • To decrypt a folder, use the same process, only disable the document property encryption by clearing Encrypt Document Properties check box.
  • Rename your file with a completely different filename and a different file extension. For example, change filename.doc into general.jpg or filename.xls into birthday.mp3; If file extensions (.doc, .png, .mp3, etc.) are not visible go to: Tools -> Folder Options -> View, and uncheck hide extensions for known file types. Some computer savvy individuals may be able to crack the file.
  • You can encrypt your files using strong AES-256 encryption feature of 7-zip, which is a free file compression utility which you might be using already to compress/zip multiple files into one smaller file to be send across internet.
After encrypting the files, you should back up your certificates because there is no other way to recover encrypted files with a corrupted or missing certificate. It is critical that you back up the certificates and store them in a secure location. Here's how to back up your certificate : 

1. Open Microsoft Internet Explorer. On the Tools menu, click 'Internet Options'.

2. On the 'Content' tab, in the Certificates section, click 'Certificates'. Click the 'Personal' tab.

3. Select one certificate at a time until the 'Certificate Intended Purposes' field shows 'Encrypting File System'.

4. Click 'Export' to start the Certificate Export Wizard, and then click 'Next'. Click 'Enable Strong Protection', then click 'Next'. Type in your password.

5. Specify the path where you want to save the key, and then click 'Next'. You can save the key to another location on the hard disk, or on a removable media
