(c) The transferred employee should apply for crediting the Joining Time within Six months from the date of his transfer – G.O.ibid.

(Travel by Ocean or river steamer are not in practice now. The rules were framed when the British ruled us and when the Madras state was called Presidency comprising Andra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala at the a time where travel by steamer, bullock, elephant, walk etc., were unavoidable. Now, roads have been laid and conveyance ply throughout the length and breath of the state. The rule makers should examine these aspects and remove these out dated and unworthy rules from the F.R.II will help to reduce confusions because the rules are not always handled by people – Author)
