Download Contract Appointment Policy 2004 Punjab Updated, 2020
Government of the Punjab has formulated contract appointment policy in year 2004. Brief back ground of the contract policy 2004 is that:- In the past, contract appointments were made against a few selected posts whereas, the bulk of appointments in the government sector were made on regular basis. However, during the last few years, it has been increasingly realized that the regular mode of appointment is not suitable for most of the government sector assignments due to administrative and financial factors.
2. The Government has now generally shifted from regular mode of appointment to the contract mode, in view of the changing management practices and to achieve the goals of good governance in public sector departments/organizations. Despite this major shift in policy, no legal/policy framework, governing various aspects of contract appointment, is available except the general guidelines issued by Finance Department regarding terms and conditions of contract appointment. As a result, a number of confusions keep arising, especially with respect to the contract appointments of persons who are already working on regular basis in the government sector.
3. To clarify the legal position of contract appointments and to provide policy guidelines for the same, a comprehensive Contract Appointment Policy has been framed
