An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propogation nor does truth becomes error because nobody sees it.Truth stands, even if there be no public suppport.It is self sustained.

Extension of probation due to late passing of depart. exam.does not affect seniority.

A directly recruited Tahasildar in 2002 did not pass the examination during the probationary peroid of two years . Her probation was therefore extended . She passed the examination in 2007 and then she was issued a  certificate of satisfactory completion of probation period. The Tahasildars  of 2002  batch are being considered for promotion as Deputy Collector. The Tahasildar in question approached me to enlighten her as to whether her promotion will be delayed on account of extension of probationary period due to late passing of the departmental examination.

The seniority of State Government employee is fixed as per provisions in Rule 4 of M.C.S.(Fixation of Seniority) 1982. The said Rule 4 provides that the seniority  of directly recruited candidates will be fixed as per serial number in the list of selected candidates prepared by M.P.S.C.Therefore if on the date of meeting of the departmental promotion committee the candidate has satisfactorily completed the probation period (including passing of departmental examination), and fulfills the requirements prescribed for appointment by promotion  as Deputy collector,the case of the said Tahasildar will have to be considered as per her seniority and his suitability for promotion decided by the D.P.C.

In short the extension of probationary period on account  of late passing of the departmental examination does not adversely affect the seniority of a directly recruited candiate.
