It depends on the company policy. In General we will be recruiting the experienced people on probation hence 6 months time is more than enough. Igf you are taking freshers then one year / 6 months of training, 6 months probation and after completion of probation then confirmation.

Generally after 6 months. If performance is not satisfactory then we can extend probation period for another 3 months/6 months. Regards, Taksh
Sub- confirmation
As Mr. kamesh said, it depends up on the company's rules. However, if your company is covered under the Industrial Employment(Standing Orders) Act 1946, the company cannot fix a longer period of probation for 'workmen' than what is provided under model standing orders as applicable to your company.This aspect needs to be verified. As regards others other than workmen , the contract of service determines the duration of probation period as there is no hard and fast rule to specify it. In some public sector banks, the period of probation extends to even one or two years depending up on the seniority of the position.

In addition to the reply by Mr. Saikumar, under the model standing orders (Bombay Industrial Employment (SO) Rules 1959),
In case of workman doing manual or technical work :
"every probationer who has completed the period of three months uninterrupted service in the post in which he is provisionally employed shall be made permanent in that post by the manager by the order in writing within seven days from the date of completion of such period".
if the certified standing orders have fixed the probation period longer than the period prescribed under the model standing orders, the probationer has to complete the said probation period for being a permanent.
In both cases, if performance is not satisfactory, the employer may extend the same by the order in writing to do so.
Usually, in most of the industrial organizations, six months / one year is the standard probation period. however, in some Govt sectors, it has extended upto two years also.

I would like to elaborate on what Mr. Atul's updation on the period of probation specified by the Model standing Orders under Bombay Rules for workmen doing manual and technical work

The relevant model standing order (4-A) fixes the period of probation as three months and furthur states that if the certified standing orders of an establishment fixes a longer period of probation than three months, the probationer shall complete such longer probation period.However the model standing order does not give this liberty to every establishment.It laid down one condition.It gave this liberty to fix longer probation than three months to only those establishments which framed their certified standing orders before the date on which the Bombay Rules came into force.

The Bombay Industrial Emloyment (Standing Orders) Rules 1959 came into force with effect from 15th january 1959. What it means is that an establishment which framed it's certified standing orders with longer period of probation before 15th Januray 1959 , can only continue to call up on the employees to complete six months or longer period of probation and those establishments which came into existence after 15 th January 1959(to which period the majority establishments belong), in my view, cannot fix longer period of probation than three months as prescribed under the aforesaid model standing order. This is the rider the MSO incorporates in it.

This is purely a management decision. If it is felt necessary/appropriate, an employee can be treated as a confirmed employee from day one.
However, it is a standard practice to engage an emplyee on a 6 months' probationary period. This helps in helping the employee get a good understanding of the organization and vice-a-versa.
However, the management may decide to cut short the probationary period in their discretion and confirm an employee well before 6 months.
There is no hard and fast rule in this regard.

well it depends company to company some companies do so hurry and some do it later however after a year you have to confirm whether you are permanent there or not
