Govt keeps tabs on officers’ foreign jaunt restricting to four a year

Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala government has decided to restrict number of foreign trips by officials in a year to just four, and they will have to ensure not to prolong the duration of foreign stay to more than 20 days.  

On returning from the jaunt, officials should file a report on it. Manoj Joshi, Additional Chief Secretary (Finance), issued the new directives on foreign trips by the officials. The new directives have been formed by amending 13 existing orders. Officials will get permission for both intra and interstate air travels.

Key points: A senior official should be suggested for foreign trip only in unavoidable circumstances. Official should meet only his or her vis-à-vis official in the host country.  The official should not enter in discussion with any lower ranking officials of the host country, endangering the nation’s reputation.

Officials attached to secretariat, other departments, and public sector should suggest foreign trip to Minister via concerned departmental secretary, and the request should course through ranks including finance secretary, finance minister and Chief Minister.

On returning from the trip, officials should submit report to Chief Minister via secretaries and chief secretary detailing activities conducted during the meeting, details of communication between officials, and efforts to fulfill the aims of the trip.

The suggestion for trips not incurring financial liability from government should not be directed to finance department. However, they should get permission from Chief Minister through department secretary and Chief Secretary.

College and university faculties travelling abroad to participate seminars without incurring financial liability to government or university do not require permission from the government.

However, vice chancellor and educational directors can grant them permission, informing the concerned departmental secretary.
