No proper implementation of rotational transfer policy for CSS
The reply to an application under the Right to Information (RTI) Act has shown that despite the assurance given by the Minister of State for Personnel and Training, norms for rotational transfer policy are not being followed properly. The information provided by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) shows that a total of 81 Assistants and 36 Section Officers of the Central Secretariat Service (CSS), who are in the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) attached office of the DoPT, have not been transferred till date.
Also, the norm of transfer at the time of promotion was also not being implemented as a Joint Secretary of the Department, already working in the department for past 25 years, remained posted in SSC even after the promotion. It is also alleged that on junior level, the implementation has been rather strict as 19 data entry operators were transferred even though no transfer policy exists for them.
