wherein instructions have been issued on direct submission of representations
by Government servants for their service matters. In spite of these
instructions, it has been observed that Government servants are still
continuing to represent directly to the Hon’ble President of India, Prime
Minister Office, Union Ministers, Cabinet Secretariat and other higher
authorities of Department of Posts.
2. Such action on the part of the Government servants has been viewed
seriously in the Directorate. It is, therefore, reiterated that such submission of
representations including through email or public grievance portal directly to
other authorities by passing the prescribed channel of communication would be
treated as unbecoming conduct attracting the provisions of Rule 3 (1) (iii) of the
Central Civil Services (Conduct) Rules, 1964 and invite action under the
provision of Rule 20 of Central Civil Service (Conduct) Rules, 1964 prohibiting
Government servant from bringing outside influence in his service matter.
3. It is also clarified that representation by relatives of Government
servant is also treated as outside influence as clarified vide MHA OM No. F.

redressal of grievance of all non-gazetted employees are in the respective
Circle only. As such, the service matter of the all such employees must be
settled in the concerned Circles only.
4. In view of the above, you are requested to bring these instructions to the
notice
of
all officers and staff and sensitize them to submit their
representations to their immediate officers or to the officer designated to
dispose of grievances.
Yours faithfully,
