CENTRAL CIVIL SERVICES
(CLASSIFICATION, CONTROL & APPEAL) RULES, 1965
Government of India’s decisions :
(1) Report of arrest to superiors by Government servants :-
It shall be the duty of the Government servant who may be arrested for any reason to intimate the fact of his arrest and the circumstances connected therewith to his official superior promptly even though he might have subsequently been released on bail. On receipt of the information from the person concerned or from any other source the departmental authorities should decide whether the fact and circumstances leading to the arrest of the person call for his suspension. Failure on the part of any Government servant to so inform his official superiors will be regarded as suppression of material information and will render him liable to disciplinary action on this ground alone, apart from the action that may be called for on the outcome of the police case against him.
[MHA letter No. 39/59/54-Est.(A) dated the 25th February, 1955]
State Governments have also been requested to issue necessary instructions to Police authorities under their control to send prompt intimation of arrest and/or release on bail etc. of Central Government servant to the latter’s official superiors.
