22-A: Approved Candidates:

           

i)                     All first appointments to a service or class or category for Grade thereof; whether by direct recruitment or by recruitment by transfer or by promotion, shall be made by the appointing authority from a list of approved candidates. Such list shall be prepared in the prescribed manner by the appointing authority or any other authority empowered in the CMWSS Board Special  Regulations in that behalf. Where the candidates in such list are arranged in their order of preference appointments to the service shall be made in such order.

 

ii)                  Ingredients for estimates and mode of preparation of estimates:

 

The estimate of vacancies should be prepared taking into account the total number of permanent posts in a category, the number of temporary posts in existence, the anticipated sanction of new posts during the penal year, the provision for leave reserve (5% of cadre strength) and un-expected contingencies, vacancies caused due to retirement, promotion, etc.,  prepared in the format given in Annexure-I to this  Regulation.  An example of estimates prepared is given in Annexure-IA  Provision for un-expected contingencies should be made as in Annexure-I(3).

 

However, vacancies which are likely to arise after the panel year should not be considered.  Such vacancies should be reckoned only in the next panel year.  Nevertheless, where a panel is prepared after the relevant panel year, only the actual number of vacancies which really arose should be reckoned.

 

 

iii)        Number of persons to be included for a single vacancy

           in a post other than the Head of Department:

 

According to provision (ii) above, when the estimate of vacancies arrived at is between 1 and 10, provision for unexpected contingency at 50 percent subject to a minimum of 1 should be made.  Hence for a single vacancy estimated, one more number should be added to the estimate in  order to meet unexpected contingencies, and a panel consisting of two names should be drawn.

 

iv)        “While preparing panel to fill up  a single vacancy  for promotions, the claims of the first two qualified candidates in the seniority list in a class or category or service shall be considered and that the same proportion shall be maintained in making selection for more than a single vacancy. If the first two candidates, after consideration of their claims, are found not suitable for the post, the claims of the next  two qualified candidates shall be considered.

 

(B.R.323/91 dt.22.10.91 & B.No. 114/2000 dt. 6.3.2000)

 

v)         In the matter of preparation of panel for promotion

           posts of grades, 1st April of every year is fixed as

           crucial date.

 

vi)        The list of approved candidates selected for appointment to all categories indicating the order in which the appointments have to be made, should be published in the Notice Board.

 

vii)       The list should be communicated to all persons concerned that is to those in the list as well as persons senior to the junior included in the list, whose names have not been included.

If no representation is received within the above period, the list communicated shall be deemed to final.
