Posting of husband and wife at the same station

This is an import government orders for the employee whose spouse is also working in a government Services. Government has made its intentions clear. It’s committed to increase the representation of women in central government jobs.

It has been decided that when both spouses are in same Central Service or working in same Deptt. and if posts are available, it is mandatory to them at the same station.

The consolidated guidelines are as follows:-

Where the spouses belong to the same All India Service or two of the All India Services, namey IAS, IPS and Indian Forest Service (Group ‘A’) the spouse may be transferred to the same cadre by providing for a cadre transfer of one spouse to the Cadre of the other spouse, on the request of the member of service subject to the member of service not being posted under this process to his/her home cadre. Postings within the Cadre will, of course, fall within the purview of the State Govt.
Where one spouse belongs to one of the All India Services and the other spouse belongs’ to one of the Central Services, the cadre controlling authority of the Central Service may post the officer to the station or if there is no post in that station, to the State where the other spouse belonging to the All India service is posted.
Where the spouses belong to the same Central Service, the Cadre controlling authority may post the spouses to the same station.
Where the spouse belongs to one Central Service and the other spouse belongs to another Central Service, the spouse with the longer service at a station may apply to his/her appropriate cadre controlling authority and the said authority may post the said officer to the station or if there is no post in that station to the nearest station where the post exists. In case that authority, after consideration of the request, is not in a position to accede to the request, on the basis of non-availability of vacant post, the spouse with lesser service may apply to the appropriate cadre authority accordingly, and that authority will consider such requests for posting the said officer to the station or if there is no post in that station to the nearest station where the post exists.
Where one spouse belongs to an All India Service and the other spouse belongs to a Public Sector Undertaking, the spouse employed under the Public Sector Undertaking may apply to the competent authority and said authority may post the said officer to the station, or if there is no post under the PSU in that station, to the State where the other spouse is posted.
Where one spouse belongs to a Central Service and the other spouse belongs to a PSU, the spouse employed under the PSU ‘may apply to the competent authority and the said authority may post the officer to the station or if there is no post under the PSU in that station, to the station nearest to the station where the other spouse is posted. If, however, the request cannot be granted because the PSU has no post in the said station, then the spouse belonging to the Central Service may apply to the appropriate cadre controlling authority and the said authority may post the said officer to the station or if there is no post in that station, to the station nearest to the station where the spouse employed under PSU is posted.
Where one spouse is employed under the Central Govt. and the other spouse is employed under the state Govt, the spouse employed under the Central Govt. may apply to the competent authority and the competent authority may post the said officer to the station or if there is no post in that station to the State where the other spouse is posted.
The husband & wife, if working in the same Department and if the required level of post is available, should invariably be posted together in order to enable them to lead a normal family life and look after the welfare of their children especially till the children attain 18 years of age. This will not apply on appointment under the central Staffing Scheme. Where only wife is a Govt. servant, the above concessions would be applicable to the Govt. servant.
It was also directed by DOPT that the cadre controlling authority should strive to post the employee at the station of the spouse and in case of inability to do so, specific reasons, therefore, may be communicated to the employee.
