Dated the 12th November, 2010


Subject: Communicating tentative reasons for disagreement under rule 15(2) of the CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965.

The undersigned is directed to say that rule 15(2) of the Central Civil Services (Classification, Control and Appeal) Rules, 1965 states that 'The Disciplinary Authority shall forward or cause to be forwarded a copy of the report of the inquiry, if any, held by Disciplinary Authority or where the Disciplinary Authority is not the Inquiring Authority, a copy of the report of the Inquiring Authority together with its own tentative reasons for disagreement, if any, with the findings of Inquiry Authority on any article of charge to the Government Servant who shall be required to submit, if he so desires, his written representation or submission to the Disciplinary Authority within fifteen days, irrespective of whether the report is favourable or not, to the Government Servant.

2. The necessity of following the aforementioned rule 15(2) both in letter and spirit is reiterated. The communication forwarding the I0's report alongwith the 7 tentative reasons for disagreement, if any, seeking comments / representation of the Charged officer should reflect this position. All Ministries / Departments are, therefore, requested to ensure that the communication forwarding 'the I0's report etc. does not contain phrases such as 'Article of charge is fully proved' or 'Article of charge is fully substantiated' which could be construed to mean that the disciplinary authority is biased even before considering the representation of the charged officer and this would be against the letter and spirit of the CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965.

3. Ministry of Finance etc. may bring the contents of the above OM to the notice of all concerned.
