The Chief Secretary All states /UTS
Sub: Inter Cadre Transfer of All India Service Officers
to third cadre on the ground of marriage -Clarification in Policy –
I am directed to refer to this Department’s letter no.
13017/16/2003-AIS-I dated 18.1.2008 on the subject cited above, which provides
as under: –

“In cases of inter-cadre transfer of officers on ground of
‘marriage’, the couple should normally be transferred to one of the two Cadres
on which they are borne. In case of refusal of both Cadres to accept the
officers, in the first instance, the matter should be taken up formally a second
time with both the cadres. In cases of continued refusal of both the cadres to
accept the officers on grounds that are deemed by the Central Government to be
genuine and satisfactory, the couple shall be transferred to one of the deficit
cadres with concurrence of the State Government concerned. The matter shall be
revisited after the category of deficit cadres ceases to
2. The issue has been further examined and in the above context
it is clarified that deficit cadre is one where there is a maximum percentage of
shortfall of direct recruit officers vis-à-vis the direct recruit cadre
strength. Shortfall may be computed on the basis of Civil List of AIS prevailing
at the time of the application for Inter-Cadre Transfer. In case of continued
refusal by the cadres of the officers on which they are borne the officers would
be considered for transfer to a third cadre and for this purpose Central
Government will first identify three cadres, which have maximum deficit of
direct recruit officers as a percentage of all the DR officers sanctioned post
and then give a choice to the couple seeking transfer to a third cadre to choose
one of those cadres. Thereafter, the concurrence of the concerned cadre would be
taken before the couple is transferred to third cadre.
3. The above procedure for inter cadre transfer of AIS officers
to third cadre on the ground of marriage would be applicable in all the cases,
which are pending for consideration and also those cases which would be received
in future.

Yours faithfully,

(S.S. Shukla)
Under Secretary to the Government of India
