ever, that in the cases of civil servants appointed to offices of the description referred to subsequent to the 2nd June 1854, the sum of rupees 50,000 shall be held to be the maximum salary, under the Government Resolution, No. 563, of that date.

Section XXV. Deputation allowances shall be granted to civil servants temporarily performing the duties of an office according to the following rates, and subject to the limitations and conditions herein-after laid down :

To civil servants not holding any substantive appointment, at the rate of 50 per cent. on the monthly salary of the appointment officiated in, such depntation allowance being in addition to the subsistence allowance of their respective ranks.

To civil servants holding an office of inferior emolument, when officiating in an office of superior emolument, at the rate of 20 per cent. upon the monthly salary of the appointment officiated in, in all cases in which the salary of such appointment shall not exceed Company's rupees 2,000 per mensem, and in respect to all appointments of which the salary shall be more than Company's rupees 2,000 per mensem, at the rate of 20 per cent. upon Company's rupees 2,000, and of 10 per cent. on the amount in which the monthly salary may exceed Company's rupees 2,000; provided, however, that no lower rate of deputation allowance shall be given than rupees 200 per mensem.

The deputation allowance shall in all cases be in addition to the salary of the substantive appointment held by the officer on deputation. The above rates are granted provisionally, subject to future revision.

In the Punjab, Nagpore, and other places, where appointments are by classes, the amount of deputation allowances, payable at the above rates, will be calculated, not upon the salary of the individual officer holding the substantive appointment in which the officer deputed may be temporarily officiating, but on the average rate of salary attached to the particular class to which the appointment may belong.

A civil servant acting for another shall have no claim to commission or fees, where any such sources of emolument exist. These shall be regarded

as forming part of the income of the officer to be relieved, subject to the prescribed deductions.

A civil servant acting in an appointment the salary of which is to be reduced on the retirement of the present incumbent will draw deputation allowance on the reduced salary.

An officer officiating in more than one appointment will be entitled to deputation allowance, regulated by the aggregate amount of the salary of the offices.

An officer appointed permanently to a higher situation, but prevented from joining his appointment by an order of Government, and detained to officiate in a situation of still higher emolument than the one to which he has been permanently appointed, will be entitled to a deputation allowance in addition to the higher salary to which he has been promoted.

Section XXVI. No civil servant temporarily officiating for another shall draw an amount larger than the entire emoluments of the office in which he is officiating; and if the amount of the deputation allowance, according to the prescribed scale, added to the permanent emoluments of the officiating servant, would exceed the emoluments of the office in which he is temporarily acting, the excess shall not be drawn. But this provision shall not apply to the case of any officer deputed for special reasons to act in an office of inferior emolument to his own. In cases where an officer holding two appointments, on being deputed to officiate for another, shall be relieved only from one, he shall receive no deputation allowance, unless the emoluments of the office in which he is deputed to act exceed the united emoluments of his permanent appointments, and in that case the deputation allowance shall be limited to the difference.

Section XXVII. No subordinate officer acting for his principal, or for any other person holding a superior appointment in the same office or establishment, at the same station, shall be entitled to any deputation allowance until

after the expiration of one month, and then the allowance is not to be drawn in arrear. But a servant previously out of employment, or who may be deputed to act from a different station, shall be entitled to deputation allowance from the date at which he may enter upon the discharge of the duties to which he has been temporarily appointed.

Section XXVIII. Civil servants if deputed to act at a distance from the stations where they are employed, or if ordered by Government on special duty, shall be permitted to draw travelling allowances at the rate sanctioned in the case of a first appointment.

CHAPTER VII.- Rule for limiting the Period of Service. Section XXIX. After thirty-five years' service, no civil servant shall be appointed to any new office, nor be permitted to retain an office which he has held for a period of five years and upwards, except in special cases, which are to be referred for the decision of the Honourable the Court of Directors. This rule will be applicable to every civil servant appointed to office after its promulgation, and to the case of every other civil servant to whom it relates at the close of five years from the 25th August, 1854,

Chapter VIII.— Rules for the Grant of Leave of Absence to Law Officers. Section XXX. The East India Company's law-officers may obtain sick leave and short leave on private affairs under the conditions prescribed in the case of civil servants, both as respects the periods of absence and the limitation of allowances during such absence. Leave will, however, only be granted at the convenience of the Government, and no additional expense will on any consideration be incurred by the Government on account thereof.

If any law officer shall quit his duty, save on leave under medical certificate, or on short leave on private affairs, he will be considered to have vacated his appointment.

Chapter IX.— Rules for Chaplains and Assistant Chaplains. Section XXXI. Chaplains and assistant chaplains may take furlough on private affairs and on medical certificate, also privilege leave, and leave for short periods on private affairs, and on medical certificate in or out of India, on the same terms and conditions as military officers, with the following modifications :

1st. Chaplains being allowed to retire after twenty years' service, the period of furlough on private affairs is in their case limited to the present term of three years. The furlough may, however, either be taken in one period, or be divided into two periods, whether of eighteen months each, or of two years and one year respectively; and if divided, the first furlough may be taken, as at present, after seven years' residence, and the second furlough, after a further residence of ten years in India. As respects chaplains and assistant chaplains appointed before the lith January 1854, when the period of service was only eighteen years, their second furlough, if they should exercise the option of taking furlough in two periods, will be available after a second residence in India for a term of eight years.

endly. No furlough or leave of absence, whether on private affairs or on sick certificate, taken in Europe or elsewhere in excess of three years, will be allowed to count as service in India in the twenty years which qualifies chaplains for their retiring pensions. Periods of "privilege "leave, and of short leave of absence on private affairs, will, however, count as service and residence.

Section XXXII. The furlough pay of chaplains will remain as at present. With regard to their allowance during sick leave to any place out of India, they shall receive salary (but at a rate not exceeding 6001. per annum) for the first six months of absence, and for the remaining twelve months, an allowance equal to the furlough pay of their standing. If the leave be extended, an allowance equal to furlough pay may be drawn for a further period of eighteen months.
