    • no need of noc from bank ….. as ssc never counts bank experience … however we would recommand u to leave through proper channel

  14. I m currently working in ministry of I & b as deputy director and now has been selected as director in one of the central university under ministry of HRD. I applied through proper channel.

    A have tendered my technical resignation and have requested for two years lien. But my application for Lien and technical resignation is not being considered and have been told you will retire from current job and yours will be just resignation not technical resignation. Means my more than 5 years of service will be lost here and all bike fits like leaves, NpS etc will be lost here. It looks like central university which is purely a central govt office is not being considered as govt of India office.
    Please suggest what to do.
