(viii) Removal from engagement which shall not be a disqualification for future engagement; 
(ix) Dismissal from engagement, which shall ordinarily be a disqualification for future engagement.
Note: The Penalty of recovery under Rule 9 (iv) can be imposed fully without any restriction."

10-A Procedure for imposing Minor penalty:-

(i) No order imposing any of the penalties specified in Clause (vi) to (ix) of Rule 9 shall be passed on a GDS except after:-
(a) The Sevak is informed in writing of the proposal to take action against him/her and of the allegation on which it is proposed to be taken and given an opportunity to make any representation he/she may wish to make; and 
(b) such representation, if any, is taken into consideration by the engaging Authority.

10-B. Procedure for imposing Major penalty:-

(i) No order imposing any of the penalties specified in clause (vi) to (ix) of Rule 9 shall be passed on a GDS except after:-
(a) The Sevak is informed in writing of the proposal to take action against him/her and of the allegation on which it is proposed to be taken and given an opportunity to make any representation he/she may wish to make; and 
(b) such representation, if any, is taken into consideration by the Engaging Authority.
Provided that, the major penalty shall not be imposed except after an inquiry in which he/she has been informed of the charges against him/her and has been given a reasonable opportunity of being heard in respect of those charges:

Provided further that where it is proposed after such inquiry, to impose upon him/her any such penalty, such penalty may be imposed on the basis of the evidence adduced during the inquiry.

10-C. The record of proceedings shall include:-

(i) A copy of the intimation to the Sevak of the proposal to take action against him/her;

(ii) a copy of the statement of allegations, along with a list of evidence in support thereof, communicated to him/her;

(iii) his/her representation, if any;

(iv) the records of the inquiry proceedings along with the inquiry report of the Engaging Authority or Inquiry Officer, if any, appointed in a case where a formal inquiry is necessary;

(v) the representation, if any of the Sevak on the Inquiry Officer's report;

(vi) findings of the Engaging Authority m respect of the allegations;

(vii) the order imposing the penalty.

10-D. Inquiry has to be conducted even if the GDS accepts the charges in the cases where major penalty is to be imposed by Engaging Authority. The purpose of holding inquiry in such cases is primarily to give the GDS adequate opportunity to defend himself/herself. In cas.e the charge is accepted by him/her unconditionally, there would obviously be no need for an inquiry for imposing major penalty.

10-E. Normally, there is no need for conduct of an inquiry for imposing minor penalty to GDS. However, where a minor penalty is to be imposed under Rule 10, it is upto the discretion of Disciplinary Authority to decide whether an inquiry should be held or not in case of a request by the delinquent GDS received by the Disciplinary/Engaging Authority. The implication of this rule is that, on receipt of representation of delinquent GDS concerned on the imputations of misconduct or misbehavior communicated to him/her, the Disciplinary/Engaging Authority should apply its mind to all facts and circumstances and reasons urged in the representation for holding a detailed inquiry and form an opinion whether an inquiry is necessary or not. In a case where delinquent GDS has asked for inspection of certain documents and cross-examination of the prosecution witnesses, the Disciplinary/Engaging Authority should naturally apply its mind more closely to the request and should not reject the request solely on the ground that an inquiry is not mandatory. If the records indicate that, notwithstanding the points urged by the delinquent GDS, the Disciplinary/Engaging Authority could, after due consideration, comes to the conclusion that an inquiry is not necessary, it should say so in writing indicating it's reasons, instead of rejecting the request for holding inquiry summarily without any indication that it has applied its mind to the request, as such an action could be construed as denial of natural justice.

10-F. Procedure for imposing penalty after discharge:-

(1) The departmental proceedings under rule 10, if instituted while a Sevak was in engagement shall after the discharge of the Sevak on attaining the age of sixty five years be deemed to be proceedings under that rule and shall be continued and concluded by the authority by which the proceedings were commenced in the same manner as if the Sevak had continued in engagement and in such case the function of the disciplinary authority shall be only to reach a finding on the charges and to submit a report recording its findings to the President and the final decision on such report shall be taken in the same manner as in the case of review petitions of the Sevaks addressed to the President and no appeal shall lie against such decision.

(2) The President reserves to himself the right of withholding group insurance amount, security amount, post-engagement benefits like ex-gratia gratuity1GDS Gratuity and severance amount of a Sevak, by ordering recovery from these amounts in case a Sevak is found guilty of grave misconduct or negligence during the period of his engagement.

(3) For the purpose of this rule, departmental proceedings shall be deemed to be instituted on the date on which statement of charge is issued to the Sevak or if Sevak had been put off duty, on the date on which he1she had been so put off.

10-G. Procedure for disciplinary proceedings after discharge:-

1 (a) The departmental proceedings under Rule 10, if not instituted and the GDS is discharged on attaining of age of 65 years and his/her terminal benefits have not been released on the ground that, departmental · proceedings under Rule 10 were proposed to be instituted shall be instituted after the discharge of the Sevak on attaining the age of Sixty Five years and be deemed to be proceedings under that rule and shall be continued and concluded by the authority by which the proceedings were proposed to be instituted and in such case, the function of the Disciplinary Authority shall be only to reach a finding on the charges and to submit a report recording its findings to the President and the final decision on such report shall be taken in the same manner as in the case of review petitions of the Sevaks addressed to the President and no appeal shall lie against such decision.
