Subject: Inspections of Administrative and Operative Offices.
The prescribed percentage for inspections of Administrative and Operative Offices within the earmarked quarters in the inspection years 2020 and 2021was changed as a one-time measure by the competent authority vide Directorate letter no. 10-01/2020-Inspn dated 26.05.2020 in view of prevailing unprecedented situation that arose due to outbreak of COVID-19 across the country. Consequent upon this, 10% of the total inspections of 2020 already scheduled during the 4th Quarter was permitted to be carried forward to the 1st Quarter of 2021.
2. Now, it is further decided that the said 10% of the total inspections of 2020 (4th quarter of 2020) which were carried forward to the 1st Quarter of 2021, are not required to be inspected again in 2021. Therefore, the revised percentage of inspections (Quarter-wise) for the inspection year 2021 as a one-time measure is fixed as below:
|Quarter||Months||% age of inspections originally scheduled in 2020 as per standard procedure||% age of revised inspections scheduled in 2020 due to COVID-19 pandemic in 2020||% age of revised inspections scheduled in 2021|
|I||January – March||15||15 (No change)||25 (C/F of Quarter 4 of 2020 + 15 of 2021)|
|II||April – June||35||10||35|
|III||July – September||30||35||30|
|IV||October – December||20||30||10|
3. Therefore, the annual inspection programme for the year 2021 may be prepared as per column (e) of the above table.
4. This issues with the approval of the competent authority.
