2.G.O.Ms.No.526,GA (Ser.C) Department, Dt.19-8-2008.
- In the G.Os., read above, it was directed that the employees, who are under suspension for a period exceeding 2 years shall be reinstated, pending finalization of the disciplinary / criminal cases against them.
However, in exceptional cases, where the charged officers are not cooperating in completion of investigation/inquiry, a Committee headed by the Secretary of the Administrative Department, Head of the Department concerned and an Official from the ACB (in respect of ACB cases), shall review the orders of suspension of such employees, well before completion of 2 years of suspension and take a decision to continue such employees under suspension beyond 2 years, duly recording the reasons for such decision. Reinstatement of Suspended Govt Servants
- Recently, it has been brought to the notice of the Government that though instructions were issued from time to time on reinstatement of suspended Government servants, every individual case is being circulated to the Andhra Pradesh Vigilance Commission for advice, which sometimes result in unintended administrative delay. To avoid the same, it is felt necessary to standardize the types of cases, in which reinstatement can be ordered by the departments concerned. Hence, it is decided to issue necessary instructions in the matter.
- Accordingly, Government hereby issue the following instructions to the Departments of Secretariat:
i) Consultation with the Andhra Pradesh Vigilance Commission for advice is not required in respect of the cases, where it is decided to reinstate the employees, who are under suspension for a period not less than 2 years, based on the decision taken in the review as per the orders issued in the G.Os., read above, provided an Official from the ACB invariably attends such review meetings in all ACB cases;
ii) Consultation with the Andhra Pradesh Vigilance Commission for advice is invariably required in respect of the cases, where it is decided to reinstate the employees, before completion of 2 years of suspension period.
- All the Departments of Secretariat shall follow the above instructions scrupulously, while dealing with the cases of reinstatement of suspended Government servants.
