Can government employee hold administrative postion in ngo

System Engineer

Hi Experts,

My Father aged 50 year is govenment Employee in Maharahtra state Government.

He wants to start an NGO to work for environment, education and helthcare for old age people.

can he hold the administrative position like President of NGO. He in not intedning to earn any enumeration from NGO. But just wants to help other and wants to hold position of President

       Your suggestion would by highly appriciated.       



Yes, he can. The Maharashtra Civil Service Rules and Standard Code have no restriction on Social Service if it is a non political organisation and if they are honorary in nature. However, he will not be allowed to use his influence in his position of government service to benifit the said NGO, for which he has to be careful.

Thank you very much.

He will need a permission to be office bear if he was CG employees. I am not clear about Maharashtra Govt conduct rules. Better to read rules first.  It is not that he should not use official influence for the NGO rather he should not have any official dealing with the NGO.
