The Department of Personnel and Training (DOPT) has noted that the proposals seeking relaxation in Recruitment Rules are not referred through a self-contained note leading to confusion/ambiguity. Therefore, the DOPT has decided that, the proposal for relaxation should consist of a self contained note indicating the name of officers, batch, period of relaxation/shortfall, and justification for the same duly approved by competent authority. It is further decided that any reference to DOPT should be made at the level of Joint Secretary. The signed and issued copy of Seniority List of the grades and dully filled in Annexure IV in prescribed proforma may also be furnished with the proposal.
