Re-institutionalizing the practice of leaving ‘note for the successor’.


No.13024/01/2014-Trg.( Trg. Ref.)
Government of India

Dated: 26th September 2014
OFFICE MEMORANDUM
Sub: Re-institutionalizing the practice of leaving ‘note for the successor’.
Knowledge is a key driver of organizational efficiency and effectiveness, an intangible and one of the most valuable assets of an organization. Often, it is seen as the ‘hard’ information available in files, note sheets, correspondence, documents, SOPs, MOPs, and electronic databases. It is much more than that. All employees have invaluable knowledge of their areas of responsibility, which may be much more nuanced and integrated than those mentioned earlier.
2. Such innate knowledge is at a risk of getting lost when the incumbent leaves the seat- gets transferred or demits office. New employee will take time to understand issues of current importance, appreciate urgency of actionable points, recognize strengths and weakness of different subordinates for suitable work allocation, and comprehend critical issues by trial and error. This time spent in negotiating the way in new environment, spent in trial and error, may turn out to be the critical difference between success and failure of the unit, the department or even the organization.
3. Thus, knowledge continuity in wake of employee transition needs to be recognized as a key challenge: more so in the government where rule based Personnel polices mandate a fixed tenure. Problem of knowledge continuity can be significantly tackled if incumbent employee, with overall goal of success of the organization in mind, considers the successor as a part of same team and transfers the knowledge that he/she considers critical. Such knowledge transfer can be by personal interaction and briefing. However, written notes for the successor serve the purpose more effectively and also help build institutional memory. In government, though this practice used to be in vogue, of late it is becoming rare.
4. A need for re-institutionalizing the practice of leaving ‘note for the successor’ was highlighted by Hon’ble Prime Minister during the presentation of the M/o Personnel, PG & Pensions on 12 June 2014.
5. Accordingly, it has been decided that respective Competent Authorities may impress upon officers in their organizations to cultivate the habit of leaving behind “note for the successor” when they move out. It is also emphasized that all CTIs/ATIs should include inputs on “note for the successor” in their training programs so that officers are sensitized towards this important organizational responsibility.
6. This department may be informed of the steps taken in this regard.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on LTC entitlements of Fresh Recruit


No. 31011/7/2014-Estt.(A-IV)
Department of Personnel and Training
Establishment (A-IV)

Dated: 26th September, 2014
North Block, New Delhi
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on LTC entitlements of Fresh Recruit
The 6th CPC had recommended that “Fresh Recruits” to the Central Government may be allowed to travel to their Home Town along with their families on three occasions in a block of four years and to any place in India on the fourth occasion. This was accepted by the Government and orders were issued vide DoPT O.M. No. 31011/4/2008-Estt.(A) dated 23rd September, 2008.
2. This Department receives a number of references seeking clarifications from various Ministry/ Departments about the year wise LTC entitlements of Fresh Recruits. Based on the same, a set of frequently asked questions have been answered as under:
Question 1. What are the LTC entitlements of a Fresh Recruit?
Answer: Fresh recruits to the Central Government are allowed to travel to their home town along with their families on three occasions in a block of four years and to any place in India on the fourth occasion. This facility shall be available to the fresh recruits only for the first two blocks of four years applicable after joining the Government for the first time.
Question 2. How are the two blocks of four years applied to the Fresh Recruit?
Answer: The first two blocks of four years shall apply with reference to the initial date of joining the Government service even though the Govt. servant may change the job within the Government subsequently. However, as per Rule 7 of CCS (LTC) Rules, 1988, the LTC entitlement of a fresh recruit will be calculated calendar year wise with effect from the date of completion of one year of regular service.
Question 3. Are the LTC blocks of four years in respect of Fresh Recruits same as the regular blocks like 2010-13, 2014-17?
Answer: No. The first two blocks of four years of fresh recruits will be personal to them. On completion of eight year of LTC, they will be treated at par with other regular LTC beneficiaries as per the prescribed blocks like 2014-17, 2018-21 etc.
Question 4. If a fresh recruit does not avail LTC facility in a particular year, can he/she avail it in the next year?
Answer: No. Carryover of LTC to the next year is not allowed in case of a fresh recruit as he is already entitled to every year LTC. Hence, if a fresh recruit does not avail of the LTC facility in any year, his LTC will deem to have lapsed with the end of that year.
Question 5. How will the LTC entitlements of a Fresh Recruit be exercised after the completion of eight years of service?
Answer: (a) After the completion of eight years of service, when the next LTC cycle of fresh recruit coincides with the beginning of the second two year block (eg. 2016-17) of the running four year block (2014-17), he will be eligible only for ‘Home Town’ LTC if he/she has availed ‘Any Place in India’ LTC in the eighth year. Cases, where the new LTC cycle of fresh recruit coincides with the second year of the running two year block (ex. 2017 of 2016-2017), he will not be eligible for LTC in that year. Refer illustrations 1 & 3 for further explanation.
(b) At the end of the eighth year of LTC, when the new LTC cycle of a fresh recruit coincides with the beginning of a regular four year block, his entitlement in the regular block will be exercised as per the usual LTC Rules. Refer illustration 2.
Question 6. How will the LTC entitlement computed in case of a fresh recruit joining the service on 31st December of any year?
Answer: A fresh recruit who joins the Government service on 31st December of any year, will be eligible for LTC w.e.f. 31st December of next year. Since, 31st December is the last date of a calendar year, his first occasion of LTC ends with that year. Hence, he may avail his first Home Town LTC on the last day of that year. From next year onwards he would be eligible for the remaining seven LTCs. Refer illustration 3.
Question 7. How will the entitlements of a fresh recruit be computed who has joined the Govt. service before 01.09.2008?
Answer: A fresh recruit who has joined Government service before 01.09.2008 (i.e before the introduction of this scheme) and has not completed his first eight years of service as on 01.09.2008 will be eligible for this concession for the remaining time-period till the completion of first eight years of his/ her service. Refer illustration 4.
Question 8. Can a fresh recruit whose Home Town and Headquarters are same, avail LTC to Home Town?
Answer: No. A fresh recruit whose Home Town and Headquarters are same, cannot avail LTC to Home Town. He may avail LTC to any place in India on the fourth and eighth occasion only. As per Rule 8 of CCS (LTC) Rules, 1988, LTC to Home Town shall be admissible irrespective of the distance between the Headquarters of the Govt. servant and his Home Town which implies that Headquarters and Home Town should be at different places.
