Dated the 17th July, 2012
Subject:- Setting up of Search Committees / Search cum Selection
Reference is invited to this Department's
OM of even number dated
30.7.07 on the above subject.The guidelines prescribe that the panel
recommended by the Committee will be valid for one year. If no selection
is made within a period of one year, a fresh committee shall be constituted
to prepare a fresh panel. The guidelines further stipulate that the panel
recommended by the Committee will have to be accepted in toto by the
Ministry/Department. Any deviation in such matters will require the prior
approval of ACC.
2. It has been observed that there are a number of instances of
scrapping of panel by various Ministries/Departments without the
approval of ACC. This is not a healthy practice. All the
Ministries/Departments are requested to follow the laid down norms
without deviation and that the powers rested with the ACC should not be
exercised by the Ministries/Departments without the approval of ACC.
3. These instructions may also be brought to the notice of all
organizations under their administrative control for strict compliance.
