Subject: Intimation of vacancies in Under Secretary Grade of CSS
The undersigned is directed to refer to this Departments’ O.M. of even number dated 04.02.2019 whereby transfer order of 143 Under Secretaries (adhoc) who were initially promoted on “as is where is basis” was issued. So far around 23 officers have not reported to their respective Ministries/Departments where they were ordered to be posted.
2. Meanwhile, preparation is under way for the next round of adhoc promotions in Under Secretary grade. For this, this Department is required to assess the vacancies. Few Ministries/Departments have been reporting vacancies taking into account the current vacancies as well as the vacancies against which Under Secretaries have not reported for duty so far as mentioned in para 1 above. It is clarified that this Department has not cancelled the transfer order of any officers who are yet to join their respective Ministries/ Departments. Therefore, the vacancies remaining unfilled in Ministries/ Departments due to non joining of these officers cannot be filled up by a new incumbent. Simultaneously, the Ministries/Departments from where the officers are yet to be relieved may not adjust them against any subsequent vacancies which have now arisen.
3. All the Ministries/ Departments are requested to account for only those vacancies which have occurred in Under Secretary Grade after 04.02.2019 due to promotion to next higher grade, deputation, retirement etc. and intimate the same to this Department to enable us to fill them up in the fresh exercise of promotion.
