(4.1)     Classification of Posts

(4.1.1)  The Broad-based Committee, appointed by the Vice-President, CSIR, in pursuance of the decision of the Governing Body based on the recommendations of the Sarkar Committee, have made recommendations in connection with the reclassification of all existing post in the CSIR, prescribing of minimum academic qualifications for these posts etc

  1.  The recommendations have been approved by the Governing Body of the CSIR at its meeting held on 27th September, 1973.  A copy of the report of the Broad-based Committee is enclosed herewith for your information guidance and necessary action.
  2.  The main recommendations of the Committee are reproduced below
    1. Reclassification of post
    2. All the existing posts may be reclassified under four categories (i) scientific (ii) technical (iii) auxiliary technical and (iv) administrative according to the following guidelines

      1. Scientific Post:
      2. All posts the incumbents of which are expected to contribute by research and/or development of new methods or knowledge and/or new techniques.

      3. Technical:
      4. All posts the incumbents of which are expected to contribute by using existing scientific knowledge or by generating modified techniques and/or applying them for the solution of specific technical problems.

      5. Auxiliary Technical:
      6. All posts the incumbents of which are expected to help either the scientists or technologists by providing supporting technical skills (like Electricians, mechanics, etc.)

      7. Administrative
      8. Incumbents of all posts who are expected to provide the administrative support for the work of the Laboratory/Instt./Organisation.

    3. Minimum Qualifications
      1. For recruitment to all the posts with scientific designations (Junior Scientific Assistant and upwards) a minimum academic degree in science such as Master's Degree or its equivalent or a Degree in Technology or Engineering (Bachelor's Degree or equivalent) should be laid down.
      2. For recruitment to all posts with Technical designations in addition to an appropriate qualification such as Degree or Diploma, the need for technical training and skill in the field of work should be specifically stressed.
      3. For recruitment to all posts with Auxiliary Technical and Administrative designations, the qualifications required should lay more stress on skill and experience and appropriate technical training rather than a University Degree.

    The qualifications as above will become effective from the date of issue of these orders and will not have retrospective effect.

    The minimum qualification prescribed are applicable to departmental as well as outside candidates in respect of recruitment against advertised posts. Relaxation of qualifications in exceptional cases can be made by the competent authority only if a provision has been made in the advertisement for a relaxation by the appropriate authority. Cases of relaxation of the prescribed qualifications should really be exceptional.  While considering any case for relaxation of the prescribed qualifications, it has to be ensured that the individual possesses adequate scientific or technical (as the case may be) qualifications which though may not be equivalent but should be fairly comparable with the prescribed qualifications.  No individual can be appointed to scientific & technical post unless he possesses adequate scientific & technical qualifications.  Justification for relaxation should be made available to the competent authority before it is finally approved by him.

  3. In view of the above recommendations, I am to request you kindly to take action as under:-
    1. To reclassify the posts according to guidelines laid down by the Broad-based Committee and approved by the Governing Body.  It may please be noted that the classification has to be made on the basis of duties and responsibilities attached to the post and not with reference to the present incumbent of the post.
    2. To prescribe the minimum qualifications for various categories of posts as per the broad guidelines now prescribed.

    A statement showing the reclassification of the existing posts in your Laboratory/Instt. as per approved guidelines may be sent to this office in triplicate by 31st July, 1974 for review and approval by the DGSIR.

  4.     With regard to the recommendations of the Broad-based Committee as contained in para 2.3. of its Report, it is stated that at its 61st meeting held on 26th February, 1974 the Governing Body has approved that
    1. for non-gazetted staff sufficient promotional opportunities should be created in the Laboratories/Institutes. and headquarters and for this purpose the number of posts available for promotion should be reviewed from time to time so as to ensure that a person can expect a promotion after about 10 years service in a given grade and
    2. broadly speaking for all non-gazetted staff 50% of the vacancies (other than Class IV) in a particular trade/field/discipline be filled by promotion of the departmental candidates on the basis of the selection on the recommendation of the Departmental Promotion Committee subject to their satisfying the job requirements with a qualifying trade test wherever possible.  In such cases of departmental promotions the possession of minimum qualifications need not be insisted upon.

    Necessary action to implement these decisions of the Governing Body has been initiated separately In this connection para (iii) of this office letter No.. 10(4)/74-PL, dated 3rd May, 1974 refers. 

    (CSIR letter No. 17/71/74-E.II, dated 19th June, 1974.)

(4.1.2)  The Governing Body of the CSIR at its meeting held on 27th September, 1973 accepted the recommendations of the Broad Based Committee presided over by Dr. S. Bhagavantam that all the posts in the CSIR should be reclassified under four headings : 

  1. (a) scientific, (b) technical (c) auxiliary technical, and (d) administrative according to the following guidelines :-
    1. Scientific Posts :
    2. All posts the incumbents of which are expected to contribute by research and/or development of new methods or knowledge and/or new techniques.

    3. Technical:
    4. All posts the incumbents of which are expected to contribute by using existing scientific knowledge or by generating modified techniques and/or applying them for the solution of specific technical problems.

    5. Auxiliary Technical:
    6. All posts the incumbents of which are expected to help either the scientists or technologists by providing supporting technical skills (like Electricians, mechanics, etc.)

    7. Administrative:
    8. Incumbents of all posts who are expected to provide the administrative support for the work of the Laboratory/Instt./Organisation.

  2.  According to the provisions of the old Bye-law No.71 (b) scientific and technical personnel are eligible for assessment for promotion to the higher grade in the following manner :-
    1. SSAs and STAs on completion of 5 years' service in the grade.  This benefit has also been extended to SSAs and JTAs with effect from 24.2.1971 with the approval of the Vice-President, CSIR.
    2. Officers of the rank of Scientists A, A-I, B and B-I on completion of 5 years service or completing one year's service at the maximum of the scale provided they are engaged on scientific work.
    3. Officers of the rank of Scientists C and C-I on completion of 5 years' service and also remaining on the maximum of the scale for one year provided they are engaged on scientific work.
  3.  A number of representations are forwarded from time to time from individuals and various categories of personnel for consideration for assessment under this Bye-law. These are based on considerations of either designation or scale of pay or similarity of qualifications or nature of duties performed corresponding to those who are covered by the Bye-law 71 (b).
  4.  Age of retirement which was 60 for scientific personnel and 58 for others was also a matter which was related and represented upon.
  5. The Governing Body of the CSIR at its meeting held on Tuesday, the 4th March, 1975 discussed all the connected issues in detail and approved the following
    1. Posts falling under the categories of (a) scientific, and (b) technical will have the same conditions of service.  They will be assessable under the Five Year Promotion system (bye-law 71 (b)) and their age of retirement will be 60.  In this regard, wherever the word "Scientific" occurs, it may be treated as "scientific and technical" and written as "Scientific/Technical".  This is in consonance with the decision of 59th meeting of the Governing Body dated 27.9.1973 accepting Bhagavantam Committee recommendations.  This approval would be equally applicable to the decision of 61st meeting of the Governing Body dated 26.2.1974 where it is stated that the age for "Scientific" posts is 60 - others 58. The word 'Scientific' should be read as "Scientific/ Technical" referring to categories (a) and (b) referred to above.
    2. Use of generic designations like JSA/JTA, SSA/STA etc. for multifarious job requirements should be avoided.  All posts should be functionally designated. While doing so, the status, designation, nature of the duties and the service conditions applicable should be clearly indicated.  Category in which the post fell; namely scientific/technical or others should be specified so that it may clear what were to be the service conditions applicable.
    3. While creating new posts under categories of scientific and technical, (a) qualifications, (b) skills and experience, and (c) nature of duties to be performed and job requirements should be clearly spelt out.  As far as possible, (a) designation, (b) qualifications and skills, and (c) nature of job to be performed should tally with each other.
    4. It was noted that there were grey areas in regard to some posts where problems of classification as to the category may arise.  In order to obviate such problems, deal with the existing personnel and for creation of posts in future, it was decided that a suitable proforma may be devised.  This may indicate clearly the designations, qualifications and special skills, job requirements, the experience possessed by the individual and the nature of duties performed in clear terms so that these may be placed before the DG wherever doubts arose.
    5. DG-CSIR may appoint competent expert/experts to examine nature of the work done and arrive at a classification of the post in such grey areas.
  6.  The Governing Body also decided that:-
    1. Directors of National Laboratories/Institutes be requested to furnish at regular intervals a list of staff appointed along with their qualifications, advertisements for the posts etc. so that it may be possible to ensure that the requisite, standards of qualifications, experiences etc., in respect of various posts were maintained.
    2. A proper check should be maintained on the advertisements issued by the National Laboratories. Those which went against the spirit of the various decisions taken by the Governing Body should be suitably brought to the notice of the Directors.
  7.  These decisions are brought into effect immediately.
  8.  According to these decisions, post falling under the categories of (a) scientific and (b) technical will have the same conditions of service; namely, their age of retirement will be 60 and they will be assessable under the five year assessment system (old Bye-law 71(b)).  The definition of the Bhagavantam Committee in regard to scientific & technical will be the criteria for the posts concerned.  In order to ensures that these definitions are appropriately applied and classification done resulting in the application of the assessment system and the age of retirement, a proforma has been devised, a copy of which is enclosed.  In such of those cases where doubts arise as to whether an individual concerned answers the definition of technical as given by the Bhagavantam Committee, this proforma may kindly be filled up and sent filled up and sent to the CSIR Headquarters which will be examined and appropriate decision given.

    Attention is also invited to the decision of the Governing Body mentioned at (a) and (b) of paragraph 6 above.  It may kindly be ensured that the requisite information is sent every month.
