Subject: Extension of Period of Ad-hoc appointment in the grade of Section Officers of CSS regarding.
The undersigned is directed to refer to this Departments’ OM of even number dated 03. 10.2019 vide which the tenure of ad-hoc promotion in SO Grade was last extended. Reference is also invited to this Departments’ OMs 6/4/2016-CS-I(S) dated 28.12.2018 and OM No. 6/1/2019-CS-I(S) dated 14.06.2019 vide which the zone of consideration for promotion of ASOs as Section Offiicers on ad-hoc basis was issued. In all these cases, the period of ad-hoc promotion was upto 31.12.2019.
2. As the availability of regular Section Officers may take some more time, it has been decided with the approval of the competent authority to further extend the period of ad-hoc appointment in Section Officers’ Grade of CSS in respect of officers whose names appear in Annexure to this OM beyond 31.12.2019 upto 30.06.2020, subject to the following conditions.
i) The extended period of ad-hoc promotion would be from 01.01.2020 and upto 30.06.2020 or date of superannuation or date of their regular appointment in the grade or till further orders, whichever is earlier.
ii) The extension in the period of ad-hoc promotion shall be subject to vigilance clearance as per DOP&T instructions issued on the subject from time to time. However, the period of ad-hoc promotion of 02 officers i.e. Shri Salil Deep Sachan and Shri Roop Singh, is being done in terms of this Department’ s OM No. 11012/9/86-Estt.(A) dated 24.12.1986. There is, therefore, no need to seek fresh vigilance clearance in respect of these 02 officers. However, it would be further subject to the condition that the disciplinary/vigilance case against these officers has not yet been decided and no penalty bas been imposed on the officers.
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 appointee not qualifying for regular appointment in either of these two categories, they shall be reverted to the ASO 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 the Department.
v) The officers who have not yet successfully completed the Level B training shall have to attend the same as and when nominated by this Department. Failure to do so may attract administrative action including reversion to their substantive grade i.e. ASO grade.
vi) The other terms and conditions would be as contained in this Department’s OM of even number dated 01.07.2016, 03.10.2019, OM No. 6/4/2016-CS-I(S) dated 28.12.2018 and OM No. 6/1/2019-CS-I(S) dated 14.06.2019.
