 Conduct & Disciplinary Rules – 135 : (Compiled By Com Kayveeyes)



It has been decided that the duty hours should be so fixed as to require the official attend office 15 minutes before the prescribed time to commencement of the counter. This will enable official to attend the transactions precisely at the time mentioned in the hours of business.

It is important to note that the change is not to make allowance for late attendance of counter Assistants, but in recognition of genuine practical problem and to render timely service to the customers. The purpose will be defeated if the counter Asst. delays his arrival at the office.

This arrangement is to be ensured by suitably costing the hours of attendance of officials. It is expected that this change will be effective every where by Sept. 1990. This is a standing instruction.
