Govt employees can protest adverse ACRs

Government employees cannot be denied the opportunity to appeal against adverse Annual Confidential Reports (ACRs), on the grounds that such reports would not be ignored while considering them for promotion, the Delhi High Court has ruled.

A bench of Justice Pradeep Nandrajog and Justice MC Garg reversed the Central Administrative Tribunal's (CAT) directive to a departmental promotion committee to ignore the adverse ACRs of five Indian Revenue Service (IRS) officers while considering them for promotion.
