PREFACE Article 309 of the Constitution of India provides that subject to the provisions of the Constitution, Acts of appropriate Legislature may regulate the recruitment, and conditions of service of persons appointed to public services and posts in connection with the affairs of the State, and, until a provision in that behalf is made by or under an "Act" of the appropriate Legislature, such rules may be framed by the Governor of the State. 2

Earlier, at the time of framing three Volumes of Punjab Civil Services Rules,

the desirability of framing the "Act" was examined by the then Punjab Government in consultation with the Government of India and it was observed that from the promulgation of the Constitution, various sets of rules were framed and revised under the proviso to Article 309 and brought into conformity with the Constitution. Since the said proviso empowers the President and the Governor to make rules in the case of services and posts in connection with the affairs of the Union and of the State respectively, it was not considered necessary to enact the Act, referred to above. 3.

The matter regarding re-writing of all the three Volumes of Punjab Civil

Services Rules has been under active consideration of Haryana Government for last many years. The Governor of Haryana in exercise of the powers conferred by the proviso to Article 309 of the Constitution of India, has been pleased to approve the following seven rules books of Haryana Civil Services Rules to regulate the terms and conditions of services of the employees of State of Haryana :-

Pay on promotion in case of inter-se seniority.— Where the promotional posts are filled from amongst more than one feeder cadres on inter-se seniority basis, the pay of incumbent shall be fixed keeping in view the basic pay of the feeder post the seniority of which has been kept in view at the time of promotion. Illustration : In various Departments as per provision in their service rules, the posts of Assistant are filled by promotion from amongst Clerk/Stenotypist/Junior Scale Stenographer on inter-se seniority basis. Two employees Mr. ‘A’ & ‘B’ initially joined service as Clerk, later on, after qualifying departmental test of shorthand Mr. ‘B’ was promoted to the post of Steno-typist and thereafter to the post of Junior Scale Stenographer, but in the meanwhile Mr. ‘C’ has directly joined service as Jr. Scale Stenographer before promotion of Mr. ‘B’ as Jr. Scale Stenographer and Mr. ‘C’ is senior to Mr. ‘B’ in the seniority list of Jr. Scale Stenographer. At present Mr. ‘A’ is working as Clerk and is senior to Mr. B in the seniority list of Clerks, Mr. ‘B’ & ‘C’ are Junior Scale Stenographer and Mr. ‘C’ is senior to Mr. ‘B’ in the seniority list of Junior Scale Stenographers. Two vacant posts of Assistants are to be filled by promotion amongst Clerks/Stenotypists/Junior Scale Stenographers on inter-se seniority. The Service record of all the above three employees is satisfactory. Under the rules, Mr. ‘A’ & ‘B’ would be promoted to the post of Assistant w.r.t. their seniority as Clerk. Mr. ‘B’ has been promoted to the post of Assistant while working as Junior Scale Stenographer with reference to his seniority of Clerk, therefore, his pay as Assistant shall be fixed keeping in view his presumptive pay of Clerk instead of the pay actually drawn by him as Junior Scale Stenographer at the time of promotion. If pay of Mr. ‘B’ to the post of Assistant is fixed w.r.t. his presumptive pay of Clerk, the promotion already availed by him to the post of Junior Scale Stenographer shall be ignored treating it as appointment on ex-cadre post for a limited period

Note 2.─ In respect of cases falling under clause (b) of this rule, the qualifying service from the date of imposition of the penalty by the punishing authority to the date on which the order is modified by the reviewing or appellate authority, shall be counted towards increment and for other purposes for the post which was being held immediately before the imposition of the penalty or any other post which shall have been held but for the order of penalty, to the extent, the modified order permits for such counting. Illustration.─ An officer in Level 14 is reverted to a post of Level 12 for a period of, say two years, and

after six months, the order of punishment of

reversion to lower post of Level 12 is set aside by the appellate authority, the period of six months shall count for increment in level 14 held before punishment. If, on the other hand, the order of penalty is modified as reduction to a lower level for a specified period or withholding of increment in that level for specified period, the period that has already elapsed since the date of imposition of the original penalty shall be taken into account only for the purpose of computing the specified period of penalty under the modified order. Note 3.– A post vacated by a Government employee reverted to lower post/service as a measure of punishment shall not be filled substantively until the expiry of a period of one year from the date of such reversion. Where on the expiry of period of the one year, the post is filled and the original incumbent of the post is reinstated thereafter, he shall be accommodated against any post which may be vacant in the grade to which his previous post belonged. If there is no such vacant post, he shall be accommodated against a supernumerary or temporary post which shall be created in this grade with proper sanction and with the stipulation that it shall be terminated on the occurrence of the first vacancy in that grade.]1

Chapter - XII Stepping up of Pay of senior Government employee 57.

Instances where stepping up of pay of senior is not admissible .— [In the instances listed below, stepping up of pay shall not be admissible even if a junior Government employee is drawing more pay than that of senior Government employee:(a)

Where a senior proceeds on extraordinary leave resulting in postponement of date of next increment, consequently he starts drawing less pay than that of his junior in the lower level itself. Therefore, in such case senior shall not claim pay parity on promotion even though he has been promoted earlier to the higher level.

(b)

If a senior forgoes/refuses promotion leading to his junior being promoted/ appointed to the higher post earlier, junior draws higher pay than the senior.

(c)

If a senior joins the higher post later than the junior, for whatsoever reasons, whereby he draws less pay than that of junior. In such cases, senior shall not claim stepping up of pay at par with the junior. e.g. on promotion from one post to another junior joins on 1st January/July and senior joins on 2nd January/July or thereafter, the pay of junior shall be more than that of senior.

(d)

If a senior has joined later than the junior in the feeder post whereby he is in receipt of less pay than that of junior, in such cases also the senior shall not claim pay parity in the higher post though he shall have been promoted earlier to the higher post.

(e)

Where a person is promoted from lower to a higher post, his pay is fixed with reference to the pay drawn on the lower post under rule 13 and he is likely to get more pay than a direct appointee whose pay is fixed under different set of rules.

reference to the pay drawn on the post of Junior

Scale

Stenographer, whereas the pay of direct recruit Senior

Scale

Stenographer is fixed under rule 9. In such cases, the senior direct recruit cannot claim pay parity with the junior promoted from a lower post to higher post as seniority alone is not a criteria for allowing stepping up. (f)

Where a junior gets more pay than his senior due to length of service, appointment by transfer, adjustment in any department after being declared surplus or otherwise.

(g)

Where a senior draws less pay than that of junior due to different date(s) of option for fixation of pay in the pay band revised or modified from time to time.

(h)

Where a senior draws less pay than that of junior due to different date(s) of option for fixation of pay on promotion from one post to another or grant of ACP pay scale.

(i)

If a senior who has been awarded any punishment of reduction of pay or withholding of increment(s) with cumulative effect etc. and is drawing less pay than that of junior.

(j)

If a senior, who was placed under suspension and the period of suspension has been treated as non-duty, is drawing less pay than that of junior.

(k)

Where a junior gets more pay than his senior due to additional increment(s) granted to him on acquiring higher qualifications or as a personal measure or otherwise.]1

58.

Instances where stepping up of pay of senior is admissible.— In case of any anomaly between junior and senior Government employee which shall not cover in the list of instances as laid down in rule 57 and satisfy the conditions given below shall be sent to Finance Department alongwith documents required under rule 59 through Administrative Department for consideration:(a)
