राज्य सरकार के ध्यान में आया है कि राजसेवकगण राजकीय सेवा में रहते हुये विधानमण्डलों एवं स्थानीय निकाय आदि के चुनाव लड़ने हेतु राजनैतिक दलों से उम्मीदवारी हेतु आवेदन करते हैं/ टिकट प्राप्त करते हैं अथवा निर्दलीय रूप से चुनाव लड़ते हैं। इसके अतिरिक्त राजसेवक राजनैतिक पार्टियों से प्रत्यक्ष / अप्रत्यक्ष रूप से स्वयं अथवा परिवारजन राजनैतिक दलों की सदस्यता प्राप्त कर जुड़े रहकर वित्तीय सहायता करते हैं अथवा अन्यथा रूप से मदद करते हुये अन्य चुनावी गतिविधियों में संलिप्त रहते हैं जो आचरण नियमों में प्रतिबन्धित है ।

राज्य सरकार इन स्थितियों को गम्भीर मानती है और राजसेवकों का यह कृत्य राजस्थान सिविल सेवाएं (आचरण) नियम 1971 के नियम 7 के उल्लंघन में है जो दुराचरणपूर्ण है। इस सन्दर्भ में उक्त आचरण नियमों के नियम 7 के प्रावधान सुलभ सन्दर्भ हेतु निम्न प्रकार से उद्धृत हैं:
