Subject:- Procedure for conduct of supplementary DPC
This Department instructions issued vide OM No. 22011/5/86-Estt (D) dated 10.4.89 [para 6.4.2 (i)] provide that vacancies occurring due to death, voluntary retirement, new creations etc. could not be foreseen at the time of placing facts and material before the DPC, therefore, another meeting of DPC (commonly referred to supplementary DPC) should be held for drawing up a panel for these vacancies.
2. References have been received with regard to the zone of consideration, the eligibility list for the supplementary DPC and whether officers who are included in the panel by the original DPC or in the extended panel but could not be promoted as these anticipated vacancies do not actually become available could be appointed against the additional vacancies later becoming available for the same vacancy year.
3. These issues have been examined in consultation with UPSC and following is decided:-
(i) The zone of consideration, in case of holding supplementary DPC, shall be fixed as per the provisions in this Department OM No. 22011/2/2002-Estt(D) dated 6.1.2006 keeping in view total number of vacancies arising in a particular vacancy year i.e. vacancies accounted in Original DPC + additional vacancies becoming available subsequently during the same year.
(ii) The eligibility list for supplementary DPC shall be prepared by removing the names of all such officers who have already been assessed by earlier DPC as fit, unfit or placed in the sealed cover by the original DPC before placing the same for consideration by the supplementary DPC.
(iii) The officers who have already been empanelled or placed in the extended panel but could not be promoted due to these vacancies not actually becoming available; need not be re-assessed by the supplementary DPC as the assessment matrix remains the same. They may be appointed against the additional vacancies of the same vacancy year as per recommendations of the earlier DPC. In such situation the number of vacancies for supplementary DPC shall be accordingly adjusted.
4. While calculating the regular vacancies for a DPC, it is incumbent upon administrative department to ensure that there is no arbitrariness in calculation of anticipated vacancies.
5. To provide clarity in implementation of these instructions some situation specific illustrations are enclosed as Annexure to this OM.
