concerning movable property Rule 7(2) Amendment Issued.

PERSONNEL AND ADMINISTRATIVE REFORMS (PERSONNEL-A)DEPARTMENT


G.O.Ms.No.336.
Dated : 25.7.1990.
Aadi 10, Pramadhudha
Thiruvalluvar Aandu 2021.
ORDER :
According to sub-rule (2) of Rule 7 of the Tamil Nadu Government Servants Conduct Rules,
1973, a Government servant who enters into any transaction concerning any movable
property exceeding five thousand rupees in value, whether by way of purchase, sale or
otherwise should report to the prescribed authority within one month from the date of every
such transaction. According to Explanation I under the above rule, movable property
includes, inter-alia jewellery.
2. In view of the specific provision under Tamil Nadu under Tamil Nadu
Government Servants Conduct Rules, 1973, referred to in para 1 above, it will be argued that
the Government servant concerned should report the transaction of pledging of jewellery to
the prescribed authority within one month from the date of each such transaction, so long as
the expression or otherwise remains in sub-rule (2) of rule 7.
3. The Government servants used to frequently borrow money from the
Co-operative Bank and from Nationalised Bank by pledging of jewels and if they are required
to report on every occasion such pledging, this will cause hardship to the Government
Servants and simultaneously throw additional workload on departments of Government also.
However, with a view to obviate such inferences and to relieve Government servants from
the unnecessary requirement of reporting the pledging of jewels by them on each occasion
whenever the value exceeds Rs.5,000/- besides securing clarity and definiteness, the
Government have decided that the expression or otherwise occurring in rule 7(2) of the
Tamil Nadu Government Servants Conduct Rules, 1973 may be severed from the above rule.

4. The following Notification will be published in the Tamil Nadu Government

the Governor of Tamil Nadu hereby makes the following amendment to the Tamil Nadu
Government Servants Conduct Rules, 1973.
