The government employees must be considered for promotions in case meetings of the Departmental Promotion Committees (DPCs) are held after their retirement, the Centre has said.

It would be applicable for employees, who were within the zone of consideration for the relevant year but were not actually in service when the DPC is being held, the department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said in an order.

"Appointment Committee of Cabinet has observed that DPCs often do not consider such eligible officers who are retiring before the occurrence of the vacancy in the panel year," it said adding that this "undesirable trend negate the very purpose" of government's existing instructions for inclusion of such employees.

The DoPT has asked all central government ministries and departments under it to ensure "strict compliance" of its instructions to include retiring employees for promotions in case the DPCs are delayed.

Such retired officials would, however, have no right for actual promotion. The DPC may, if need be, prepare extended panel, the DoPT said.
