Subject : Provisional appointment of BPM/ABPM/Dak Sevak subject to pending verification of character and antecedents/caste certificate/educational qualification etc. on one time basis.

Sir/Madam,

A proposal was received from Telengana Circle vide letter no. E/GDS/2017/III dated 25.10.2018 for examining the issue of provisional engagement of BPM/ABPM/Dak Sevak subject to pending verification of character and antecedents/ caste certificate/educational qualifications etc. on one-time basis, in the identified LWE District.

2. The issue has been examined in depth by Establishment Division. On review of number of candidates who have joined as GDS, it is observed that, in most of the circle, the number of candidates joined as GDS is quite low since large number of candidates from other states had also applied. This has caused delay in verification of character and antecedents/ caste certificate/educational qualification etc. This has resulted in delay in issue of engagement orders. Further opening of BOs in LWE areas is a government priority. Therefore, the competent authority has approved for relaxation of precondition of verification and allowing provisional appointment of BPM/ABPM/Dak Sevak subject to pending verification of character and antecedents/ caste certificate/ educational qualifications etc. as a one time measure for all the Circles for engagement of GDS including in LWE area for online engagement in 1st Cycle.

3. In this context. it is clarified that while issuing provisional offer of engagement, the candidate may be asked to produce the originals educational certificates and other documents such as caste certificate, ex-servicemen certificate, persons with disability certificate, certificate of date of birth etc. on the day of attending division office/ joining. The originals may be verified on the day of attending divisional office/ joining by the Appointing Authority who will have option to get the documents verified from the issuing authorities, in case the documents appear to be suspicious. All the required certificates will, however, be verified from the issuing authority within a period of 180 days.

4. The provisional offer of engagement as well as the engagement order shall clearly specify that if any information or documents submitted by the candidates is found incorrect at a later stage, he/shall be terminated from the engagement in accordance with Rule 8 of GDS(Conduct & Engagement) Rules, 2011.

Yours faithfully,

(S.B. Vyavahare)
Assistant Director General (GDS/PCC)
