The Finance Ministry on Saturday dismissed rumoured reports that the government has banned or restricted hirings saying that there is no restriction or ban on filling up of posts in Government of India. Normal recruitments through govt agencies like Staff Selection Commission, UPSC, Raillway Recruitment Board, etc will continue as usual without any curbs.
The Ministry of Finance said, “The Department of Expenditure circular dated 04 Sept 2020 deals with internal procedure for creation of posts and does NOT in anyway affect or curtail recruitment.”
Administrative Expenditure Guidelines by Government:
- No printing/publishing of books, publications, documents, etc will be done on imported paper, except where printing is done abroad by Indian Missions, etc.
- Expenditure on functions such as celebrations of Foundation Day, etc. should be discouraged or it felt necessarily be appropriately curtailed. In any case, travel for such functions and provision of bags or mementoes should be avoided.
- Consultancy assignments — all ministries/departments may carry out a review of the individual consultants appointed in their respective ministries or departments in consonance with the provisions of GFR and reduce the number of consultants to the minimum requirement.
- There will be a ban on creation of new posts, except with the approval of department of expenditure, in ministries, attached offices, subordinate offices, statutory bodies and autonomous bodies.
