    I repeat ACR writing is year ending exercise however following conditions apply:<O:p</O:p
    (1) The reportee officer must have worked under the reporting officer for more than 3 months.<O:p</O:p
    (2) In case during the year if more than one officer had been the supervisor (under whom reportee worked), separate ACRs need to be written by the respective reporting officers and like wise it is for the reviewing and accepting officers.<O:p</O:p
    A time limit provision exists for reporting, reviewing or accepting officers to write ACRs after their retirement.<O:p</O:p

    I think it is again Mr Shailesh Gandhi who, through his RTI applications, brought to light the startling fact that the ACRs of majority of IAS officers are not written for years together. The reasons are not far to seek.

    We should not deliberate if it is a year end exercise or a midyear review is necessery.This forum is to deliberate on the transparency in ACR writing in order to make it objective and fair. to that extant it should not only be transparent but also a mutual exercise in assessment between the officer reported upon and the reporting officer.

    yes it should not be disclosed as it will lead them to underwriting.

    Dear Friend,ffice:office" /><O:p></O:p>
    ACRs have to be written objectively and dispassionately so their is no question of underwriting or over writing (estimation).<O:p></O:p>
    One would like to see his/her assessment only if one is ever dropped due to the performance reflected in the ACR. (most of the dropping cases are due to vindictiveness).<O:p></O:p>
    If one is not dropped and promoted one may not require to see the ACRs.<O:p></O:p>
    Instances exists where ACRs have been written by persons not authorised to do so but since it did not affect the career progression one may have no need to know this "fact".<O:p></O:p>

    It is unfair to say that a person needs to have a look at his or her assessment only in case he she is to be dropped.
    Even if an employee is rated highly and is progrssing without hiccups it is neceesary that he knows what others/boss thinks of him/her and his performance for the year. the knowlede of a high rating will definitely increase the confidence level of the employee, give him/her a feeling of pride and positively affect the motivational level.

    Seeking information must have a purpose. What purpose one can have in seeking info on others ACRs under RTI Act-2005?
    A good, bad or outstanding ACR of an individual only affects him or her so why others should like to peep into it?
    Though RTI Act-2005 overrides the Official Secrets Act it stiil stops the ACRs of third party to be disclosed.
    In case of civilian officers after the introduction of bench mark and no supersession in matters of promotion clause, grading above bench mark does not affect promotion. However, this aspect need scrunity now, as 6th CPC provides enhanced rate of annual increment based on performance.
    Malafidely written ACRs affects individuals, remarks affecting adversely during promotion, are never communiacted, hence ACRs to individuals need to be disclosed under RTI ACT-2005.

    In my experience disclosure of ACR has its own advantages and disadvantages. But if we want to be an RTI activist it should be disclosed but at the same time we should also recognise this,think about this on the basis of Government jobs. Now the trend is becoming completely opposite. We the Indians think the govt. jobs as doing nothing and claiming our monetary benefits as our rights. Everyone knows that howmuch corrupt we are towards our duties to government. And also when the political system has already made the clever,notorius persons to gain by different point of views. Lower staff maximum does not want to work seriously. And because of computer age the officer now has to even type his/her letter himself. The new employee generation does not want to learn morebecause of many reasons. The only punishment or action remain with the officer is ACR so that the regular employee has some terror otherwise once he got into the job he forget about the works. Even after doing serious mistakes in jobs because of political pressure or some other ,not at the immediate boss level even at higher level, the case has been settled. Whereas negative comments already passed to the employee for reply or otherwise. And if it is not covered under official secret act it will seriously affect the personal relations even for a single negative remark or gradingwise. Some people are making negative use of RTI, instead of using it for a benefit of general public it is becoming a source of blackmailing also.
