  1. Para 5 (i) of ibid communication prescribes that the official having more length of service in a unit (Circle or Division, as the case may be) will be placed above the official(s) having less length of service in a unit. Accordingly, PwD officials having less service has to be placed below senior officials. As a result, PwD officials have lesser chance for getting their Rule-38 transfer despite exemption in probation period Or 2 years service. The matter has been examined by the Directorate and Competent Authority has decided as under: –
Transfer requests received from Persons with Disabilities shall be registered first in the request registers (inward & outward) above all other officials based on length of their service but below the wait listed PwD officials if any in a particular year. The officials whose transfer request could not be approved in that particular year and are in the waiting list shall be placed on the top in the request register of subsequent year. Thereafter, fresh applications received during 1st April to 30th June of current year shall be registered by giving preferences to PwD officials (based on length of their service) as previously done. Fresh transfer requests received from PwD officials for current year shall be registered above all other officials (Other than pwD) who are in waiting list Of previous year based on length of service.

Further, preference shall also be given to such officials at the time Of their posting in transferee unit subject to administrative constraints.

A is the senior most among all, B is junior to A, D is junior to B and C is the junior most official. As such, PwD officials shall be registered first in the request register based on length of their service followed by two other officials based on length of their service as well. Accordingly, serial of officials in request register shall be as under: -

Sl.No.Name of the Official
1D(PwD)
2C(PwD)

Moreover, two officials namely X and Y (PwD) are in waiting list of previous year (2019). Therefore, these two officials shall be placed in top of request register of current year (2020). However, fresh transfer requests received from PwD officials shall be placed above X and below Y (as Y is PWD). Accordingly, serial Of officials in request register for current year (2020) shall be as under :–

For: “When claimants in (i) and (ii) die or become ineligible- on production of death certificate/ re-marriage-intimation of spouse and/ or death certificates of all permanently disabled children, family pension would be allowed by PDA to dependent parents.”
