GOI, Vide DOPT OM.No.11013/4/2016-Estt (A-III) dated 20th July, 2016, clarified the Definition of "Members of Family" for the purpose of Rule 4 of CCS (Conduct) Rules, 1964. This rule says, “no Government servant shall use his position or influence directly or indirectly to secure employment for any member of his family in any company or firm.” It also says, "No Government servant shall in the discharge of his official duties deal with any matter or give or sanction any contract to any company or firm or any other person if any member of his family is employed in that company or firm or under that person or if he or any member of his family is interested in such matter or contract in any other manner and the Government servant shall refer every such matter or contract to his official superior and the matter or contract shall thereafter be disposed of according to the instructions of the authority to whom the reference is made."
The clarification is as follows: “..in the context of rule 4(1) and 4(3) "Members of family" in relation to a Government servant include the wife or husband, son or daughter, parents, brothers or sisters or any person related to any of them by blood or marriage, whether they are dependent on the Government servant or not.”
