Probation period in govt. jobs

Hi! we know that now in most of the government jobs there is a probabtion period of 2 years and after successful completion of the probation period you are enrolled as a permanent employee.

my query is that suppose there is some new government department who appoints its total staff (as there is no permanent employee at present)and therefore its whole staff is on probation period. Now, if due to some or other reason the department gets closed before 2 years then what will happen to the persons appointed and who have yet not completed their probation period.

Will they will be suspended ??????

Can they claim permanancy ???????

What will be their future ???????

Kindly send your legal advise........

Thanks & Regards........

Re: Probation period in govt. jobs

1. The terms of appointment shall clearly state that the employee is on probation for a period of 2 years within a cintinuous period of 3 years in the appointment order itself. If this is not stated, then it will be construed that the appointment is on purely temporary basis and the employee cannot have any rights for permanency.

2. He cannot have any other remedy leaglly since the appointment itself is on temp.basis.

3. If u require any further clarification, the copy of the original appointment order may be sent by mail to [email protected] and only after perusing the same, further queries can be replied.
