Temporary employees of the Government of India on deputation to the State Government who are subsequently absorbed in the service of the State Government will be allowed to count for pension the period of their continuous temporary service under the Government of India immediately preceeding the service under the State Government (Vide also Rule 61). *Employees of State Government departments who left the former service in Central Government/Central Public Sector Undertakings on their own volition for taking up appointment in State Government departments will be allowed to reckon their prior service for all pensionary benefits along with the service in State Government departments.  In the case of prior service rendered by Central Government employees in State Government and vice versa, the liability of pension including gratuity, will be borne in full by the Central Government/State Government to which the Government servant permanently belongs at the time of retirement and no recovery of proportionate pension will be made from Central Government/State Government under whom he had served.  But in the case of employees who left the former service in Central Public Sector Undertakings, this benefit will be available only if the former employer remits the share of proportionate pro-rata pension liability on a service share basis.
