Recruitment and promotion in ACC during 2011 – 2013
The Commission is empowered by the ACC Act, 2004 to appoint the necessary number of officers and personnel to carry out its work efficiently (Section 16 (3)). The law also refers to determine the appointment and terms and conditions of the Secretary and other personnel of the Commission by rules and until the formulation of such rules by administrative order – subject to the approval of the Government (Section 16 (4)).
By applying this statutory authority, the Commission pronounced Anti Corruption Commission (Personnel) Employment Rules, 2008 in order to determine the appointment and terms and conditions of its personnel. The Rules provides four methods of recruitment to fill the ACC's vacant posts. The methods are direct recruitment, recruitment through promotion, recruitment through transfer on deputation, and contract-based recruitment. Rule 4 stipulates the Commission to form a recruitment and promotion committee for making recommendations on direct recruitment or recruitment through promotion.
In 2012 the Commission made an amendment to Schedule-1, Serial No. 12, and Column No. 4 of the 2008 Employment Rules, which revised proportion of recruitment at Deputy Assistant Director Positions from '60% through direct recruitment and 40% through promotion' to '50% through direct recruitment and 50% through promotion'.
