No. 22011/4/2013—Estt (D) dated 08th May 2017 (Procedure to be observed by the Departmental Promotion Committees (DPCs) — Model Calendar for DPCs — Relevant year up to which APARs are to be considered and Model Calendar for conducting DPCs — regarding).The same is available on the website of DoPT.

Whether the DPC should not be convened in case the Recruitment Rules are under process (review/amendment etc.)

The DPC should be convened at regular annual interals to draw panels which could be utilized for making promotion against the vacancies occuring during the course of a year. It has been observed that Ministries/Departments do not convene meetings of the DPCs annually for various reasons, even though eligible officers of the lower grade were available and the vacancies in the higher grade were also available for their promotion. This is often due to nonfinalisation of the seniority list of officers of the lower grade which forms the field of consideration. Another reason to justify delay in holding DPC meeting is that Recruitment Rules for the post arc being reviewed or amended. Amendment to the Recruitment Rules can normally have only prospective application and as such the existing Recruitment Rules would continue to be in force till the new Rules come into force. The Supreme Court has also ruled that vacancies should be filled according to the Rules in force when the vacancies arose. The DPCs should therefore be convened in time and the panel of officers finalised in accordance with the existing Recruitment Rules. [DOP & T OM No. 28034/6/86-Estt(D) dated 17-11-86.]
