The qualifying service of UDCs of CSCS has been enhanced to ten years for promotion to the Assistants’ Grade vide CSS (Preparation of Select Lists for the Section Officers’ and Assistants Grades) Regulations, 2013, notified on 12th July, 2013. These Regulations have been given retrospective effect from 1st July,
2009. The DoP&T’s OM dated 25.3.1996 which provides for relaxation in eligibility service to seniors when their juniors are considered for promotion has no bearing on enhancement of qualifying service.
This was stated by Shri V. Narayanasamy, MOS (PP) in written reply to a question by Shri Raju Shetti in Lok Sabha today.
