DOPT Order on Promotion

No. 5/10/2020-CS-I(U)Pt.
Government of India
Department of Personnel and Training
CS-I Division

2d Floor, Lok Nayak Bhavan,
Khan Market, New Delhi-3
Dated 18th December, 2020


Subject : Implementation of orders relating to promotion of officers in various grades in CSS.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s Orders relating to adhoc promotion in various grades of CSS Cadre issued recently, as per the details below:

S. No Description Order No. Date of issue


Promotion of Deputy Secretaries to Director 4/6/2018-CS-I(D) 11.12.2020


Promotion of Under Secretaries to Deputy Secretaries 4/5/2020-CS-I(D) 11.12.2020


Promotion of Section Officers to Under Secretaries /10/2020-CS.1(U) 14.12.2020

2. These adhoc- promotion orders had to be made to address the urgent requirement of various cadre units for manpower at various levels. However, it is seen that a large number of officers have not joined at Director and Under Secretary level. It may be appreciated that adhoc promotion is resorted to as a special dispensation for ensuring efficiency in Government’s functioning. The non-joining of officers is defeating the very purpose for which these adhoc promotions were made.
