Subject: Probation Period for persons recruited against Sports Quota.
Ref: Board’s letter no. 2010/E (Sports)/4(1)/1(policy) dated 31.12.2010 (RBE No.189B/2010) and clarifications/corrigendum issued thereto.
Attention is invited to para 8.3.3 and 8.3.4 of Board’s letter No. 2010/E (Sports)/4(1)/1 (policy) dated 31.12.2010 stipulating that before completion of the probation period, the performance of the sports person shall be reviewed at the Railway/Unit level by a three members Committee comprising:-
(i) President/Hony. General Secretary of the Sports Association of Zonal Railway/Unit.
(ii) A personnel officer of Sr. Scale/JAG level; and
(iii) Captain/ Coach of the particular discipline.
If the performance of a person recruited on sports account is considered to be unsatisfactory, the probation period will be extended maximum up to two years and the person will have to improve his/her performance to get confirmed in appointment. Even after extended probation, if the performance is found unsatisfactory, then normal procedure will be followed for termination, before the completion of extended probation.
Instances have come to the notice of Railway Board that in spite of the above mentioned instructions no review has been done for years and this non compliance of extant instructions by Administration is leading to hardship being faced by outstanding sports persons.
All Zonal Railways/Production Units may scrupulously adhere to the extant instructions and pull up arrears, if any.
