Retention of Lien of Post
Consolidated guidelines on “Technical Resignation and Lien” have been issued by Department of Personnel & Training.
(i) Lien is retained by a permanent Government employee (GE) for a period of 2 years. It is extendable upto 3 years in exceptional cases. However, while considering termination of lien of a GE it is to be ensured that he is not left without a lien on a permanent post.
(ii) Ministries/Departments are required to take timely action to extend or terminate lien on completion of the prescribed period of 2/3 years, after providing adequate opportunity to the GE.
