Category-wise details of vacancy in Income Tax Department are as under:
Group ‘A’—— 1137
Group ‘B’—— 557
Group ‘C’—— 15002
Vacancy arises on account of retirement/VRS, promotion, deputation (ex-cadre) and officers proceedings on leave (Study leave/child care leave/maternity leave/extra ordinary leave etc.). These vacancies are filled up on regular basis by promotion as per Government Instructions and prescribed procedure which is a time consuming process. In the meantime, vacancies are manned by the existing incumbents by holding additional charge so that work is not affected. Action has been initiated for holding Departmental Promotion Committee for promotion to the grade of Chief Commissioner of Income Tax and Commissioner of Income Tax for the next panel year. As regard, holding of Departmental Promotion Committee for promotion to the grade of Joint Commissioner of Income Tax and Assistant Commissioner of Income Tax, the matter is subjudice.
