Thread: Oath of 24x7

  1. Oath of 24x7


    Hi forumists,
    I am a Centre Govt. gazzetted employee . So far as i know a govt. servant cannnot do any other job on week ends and off days . So can u people clarify what does it means . Where as we get frequent calls from our office during these off days . Is it not mean we are bound to give 24x7 service . where as we get paid only for 5 days a week. I worked in USA also there I was paid for my project assigned with all the no of hours put into to complete it. How u opine about govt. servant working 24x7 with mandatory obligation not to do any other job.

    This is real nervy question very close to those in Government.

    Without actual quoting, we had this discussions at one of the party we had of civil servants. One of the officer, said to me: "Government thinks that after working for so many hours, you are exhausted and hence must take a proper break during weekends", and therefore any work during the weekend would reduce the energy level for next week of Government work. :rolleyes:

    Well this answer would then be contradictory to what you said, why 24x7 work inside the Government.

    I do not understand this question and RTI. This forum is about RTI, and I fail to see how this question relates to RTI.

    I agree with SATISH GUPTA in his comments.

    Government service means the dedication to social cause 24 X 7 and if one choose it, one need to live it up.

    Every one's work is linked to social cause. The people working in Private Sector are also contributing to Social Cause directly and indirectly.

    Kushal view point is valid, if the exigencies are occasional no one minds working on week ends, but if it becomes a routine then we have to see in the back ground of over all systemic efficiency and the service being delivered.

    No social good will be served by a person who is fatigued and harassed by over work.

    I think there are good reasons to make it illegal for government officials to have side work while working for government. If they have other jobs, they might use government time or resources to do their side work. They are also likely to get offers of good jobs from people who are dependent of duties of the official job. For example, a highly placed official in charge of giving out contracts for construction, will get lots of offers of job from construction companies.

    I think I may be prejudiced because of my personal experiences in High School in Hyderabad. One teacher had side business. Very often he would meet his clients in the school during class hours. Our education was secondary to him. He was late to class often, and frequently missed classes completely, and we could see him talking to people in his room. I fear that will become common in government offices too, if officials are allowed to have second jobs.

    The rule though old still exists and applies 24x7. Govt. servants cannot work outside the Government offices even during the free time. A few exemptions are allowed to scientists, lecturers etc. Of course, you are free to write books, articles and receive honorarium. You are also permitted to give talks on AIR or DD and receive honorarium from them. Please check CCS(Conduct) Rules properly.
