The Ministry with responsibility for the Public Service is charged with ensuring that all policies established are adhered. The Bonding Policy for the Government service is one such and there should be no attempts to manipulate the established principles. The Ministry is therefore not inclined to support the option to take a lesser amount to reduce the bonding period. Notwithstanding, any such case resulting from extremely unforeseen and unavoidable circumstances must be referred to the Ministry with responsibility for the Public Service for a decision before provisions for processing/payment can be effected. Such request must be initiated by the applicant only.
