Subject: Promotion of Assistant in the grade of Section Officer of CSS on ad- hoc basis – Extension thereof.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s OM No. 6/5/2011-CS-I(S) dated 29.05.2012 & OM No. 6/11/2012-CS-l(S) dated 23.08.2012 on the captioned subject, wherein Cadre Authorities were allowed to continue the ad-hoc promotion in the Grade of Section Officer upto 31.12.2012.

2. As the availability of regular Section Officers may take some more time, it has now been decided to extend the period of ad-hoc promotion in SO grade in respect of officers whose name appear in Annexure to this OM, beyond 31.12.2012 upto 30.06.2013 subject to the following conditions:-

(i) The period of ad-hoc promotion would be upto 30.06.2013 or till the date of retirement of the officer or until further orders, whichever is earlier;

(ii) The extension in the period of ad-hoc promotion shall be subject to vigilance clearance in terms of DOP&T’s OM No. 22011/4/91-Estt(A) dated 14.9.1992, OM No. 22012/1/99-Estt(D) dated 25.10.2004 and OM No. 11012/9/86-Estt.(A) dated 24.12.1986 and also any other instructions on the subject;

(iii) The ad-hoc appointment shall not confer on the appointees any right to continue in the grade indefinitely or for inclusion in the Select List of Section Officers for regular appointment or to claim seniority in the Section Officers Grade of CSS;

(iv) Ad-hoc appointment would continue till regular candidates in Section Officer Grade are available either through Seniority quota or Limited Departmental Competitive Examination(LDCE). In the event of the ad-hoc appointees not qualifying for regular appointment in either of these two categories, they shall be reverted to the Assistants’ grade on availability of such regular officers from the date the regular Section Officers join duty in their respective Cadre Units allotted to them by this Department.

3. Any discrepancies in the Annexure may be brought to the notice of undersigned.
