Sir / Madam,

It has been brought to the notice of this Office that in certain cases, service book of employees are not properly maintained and not updated from time to time. Further, it was also reported that, incomplete service books were forwarded to the new place of posting and in some cases, the service books were not even forwarded and as a result new service books were opened without the service history of previous posting which had deprived the employees from getting retirement benefits for their past services rendered. The competent authority has taken a very serious note of this and directed that the service books of all the employees are to be maintained and updated timely and properly.

Accordingly, the following instructions are given for effective maintenance of service books: –

The updated service book must be shown to every employee at least twice in a year, preferably in the month of January / July and the employee concerned must verify the entries and acknowledge the same by affixing his/her signature with date and mentioning “No Change”, if entries are found correct. In case of any discrepancies, the same may be verified and necessary corrections may be carried out by the concerned Officer/ Dealing Assistant immediately after verifying the relevant documents/ records.
  3. In case of any change in place of posting (on account of transfer/ Promotion / direct recruitment) an updated & completed service book should be forwarded to the new place of posting by the parent Vidyalaya/ Office within a week from the date of relieving of the employee concerned.
