Madam /Sir,

Rule 20 of the Central Civil Services (Conduct) Rules, 1964 which are applicable mutatis mutandis on the EPF Staff and Officers by virtue of Regulation 18 of EPF (Officers’ & Employees condition of Service) Regulation, 2008 stipulates as under:

“20 Canvassing of non-official or other outside influence 

No Government servant shall bring or attempt to bring any political or other outside influence to bear upon any superior authority to further his interests in respect of matters pertaining to his service under Government.”

2. Instances have come to notice where EPF Officers/Officials are addressing communications, directly or indirectly through their relatives to high authorities. This is in contravention to provision of the CCS (Conduct) Rules 1964 as the Officers /Officials have by-passed the prescribed channel of communication and have attempted to bring political or other outside influence to further their interest in respect of matters pertaining to their service.
