The Central Civil Services (Conduct) Rules, 1964
RULE 10. EVIDENCE BEFORE COMMITTEE OR ANY OTHER AUTHORITY:
Government of India Decisions
(1) Tendering of evidence before the fourth Central Pay Commission
Among Secretariat officers of the Central Government, Secretaries may, if they so desire give their personal views in the light of their own knowledge and experience. Other Secretariat officers, i.e., Additional, Joint, Deputy or Under Secretaries as well as Heads of Departments may also be permitted by Government to give evidence orally or in writing to the Pay Commission on matters coming within their respective spheres of work. Such officers should, however, obtain the prior permission of Government before they appear before the Commission.
The above procedure will not apply to Government servants who appear before the Pay Commission on behalf of service associations. They may do so without the prior permission of Government, if so authorized by the Service Associations whom they represent.
There is no objection to individual Government servants submitting Memoranda etc. to the Pay Commission, in their individual capacity, provided that individual grievances will not be put to the Commission.
