OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject : Online generation and recording of Annual Performance Assessment Report (APAR) on SPARROW (Smart Performance Appraisal Report Recoding Window) of Group ‘A’, `B’ and ‘C’ officers— Extension of timelines for completion of APAR online for the year 2018-19.

The undersigned is directed to say that a large number of officers of the Central Government Ministries/Departments have been deputed for election duty in the General Election to the Lok Sabha, 2019. It is understood there would be practical difficulties in recording of APAR
online as per the target dates prescribed in DoPT O.M.No.21011/01/2005-Estt.(A)(Pt.11) dated 23rd July, 2009, through SPARROW platform, for officers deputed for election duty.
2. The matter has been examined in this Department and it has been decided with the approval of competent authority that the target dates prescribed in O.M. dated 23rd July, 2009 be relaxed as one time measure
only for online generation, filling up of self-appraisal, reporting, reviewing and acceptance of APAR for the year 2018-19 through SPARROW portal for all Group ‘A’, 13′ and ‘C’ officers. The revised target dates for
online recording and completion of entire APAR process for the year 2018-19 is enclosed as Annexure. This relaxation is subject to the condition that no remarks shall be recorded in the APAR for the year 2018-19 after 31.12.2019. Where the reporting, reviewing and the accepting authority fail to record their comments within the time frame, the officer reported upon may be assessed on the basis of the overall record and self-assessment for the year, if he has submitted his self-appraisal within stipulated time.
