What is Dies non ? – No Work No Pay

All the Central Government employees those who are participated in the Two Day Strike have been warned by the government through its circular dated 15-02-2013, that leave of any kind will not be sanctioned for them. It is under stood that the absence of two days in strike period will be treated as Dies non

What is Dies non ?

Dies non: In service terms, “dies non” means a day, which cannot be treated as duty for any purpose. It does not constitute break in service. But the period treated as ‘dies non’ does not qualify as service for pensionary benefits or increment.

As per the Postal Manual Volume III, Central Civil Services (Classification,Control and appeal) rules, 1965, the Absence of officials from duty without proper permission or when on duty in office, they have left the office without proper permission or while in the office, they refused to perform the duties assigned to them is subversive of discipline. In cases of such absence from work, the leave sanctioning authority may order that the days on which work is not performed be treated as dies non, i.e. they will neither count as service nor be construed as break in service. This will be without prejudice to any other action that the competent authorities might take against the persons resorting to such practices.

  1. Sir,

    Kindly send me no dies non CERTIFICATE DRAFT required for MACP CASES

  2. whether any period of service of an employee officially declared as dies non shall be counted for calculation of his gratuity.

  3. there is no provision in central civil service regulation about “DIES NON” it is termed as absence from service. it is to be regularised with EOL(extraordinary leave) under leave rules or to be termed as unauthorised absent under 17 of FR & SR but it will be done in the matter of illegal stike not in the case of legal stike. the DIES NON is the term utilised by executive direction and not under the provision of service rules pertinent to leave and absent. this cane be challanged before court of law.asper hon’ble supreme court definition in various judgement regarding strike to be treated as NO WORK NO PAY i.e without pay, not dies non which is different meaning of no work no pay…………..

    after taking disciplinary action as per D&AR rules then penalty advice will be issuing as per statement of charges & speaking orders with details of unauthorized absent period from date to date & update the details in the service record. If not issued any charge sheet for unauthorized absent before promotion then nothing will happen & no question of dies non etc.

    please read as ” there is no guarantee for politicians for ruling powers up to the age of 60-62 continuously without breaking of service .”

    there is lot of difference between government officials & politicians.
    Because government officials working with responsibilities & powers up to the age of 60-62 years but whereas there is no guarantee for ruling powers .

  7. C K Mansoor Rahman

    Dies non means the period of unauthorized absent will not count as qualifying service at the time of retirement.

  8. If MP/MLA disrupt the proceedings /boycott the session, the same also to be treated as dies non and equally treated like the employee participate in strikes.
