Subject: Relaxation and extension of timelines for recording of PAR for the year 2018-19 electronically in respect of AIS officers on account of their engagement on duty in connection with the ongoing General Elections - reg.

I am directed to refer to the subject noted above and state that due to ongoing General Elections to the Lok Sabha, a large number of AIS officers are engaged on duty for conduct of the said elections. It is understood there would be practical difficulties in recording of PAR online as per the target dates prescribed under AIS (PAR) Rules, 2007, through SPARROW platform, for officers engaged for election duty.

Accordingly, the matter has been examined in this Department and it has been decided with the approval of competent authority to relax Rule 4A(1) of AIS (PAR) Rules, 2007, as a one-time measure to the extent that the target dates prescribed for online generation, filing up of self-appraisal, reporting , reviewing and acceptance of PAR for the year 2018-19 through SPARROW portal for all levels of AIS officers be modified as per Annexure herewith.

Further, instructions for cases where the reporting I reviewing I accepting authority demits office or retires before the due date as amended herewith shall be issued separately.
