Civil servants of the state services from Punjab on Wednesday met Union Minister Jitendra Singh and requested him to direct the Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT) to expedite their cases of induction into IAS (Indian Administrative Services).

Responding to their request, the minister said the DoPT has constantly been striving to expedite the promotions and empanelment of officers, so that each of the officers gets his/her due in time and remains motivated to offer services to the best of their potential and ability.

“Speaking to a delegation of senior officers of Punjab Civil Services (PCS), who called on him with a request to expedite their cases of induction into IAS (Indian Administrative Services), Dr. Jitendra Singh said there was a tendency for delay in the past but over the last six years the processes have been streamlined with optimum utilisation of modern technology,” the DoPT said in an official release.

Singh is quoted to have said that in the last few years, “DoPT has followed a proactive approach in coordination with different ministries and departments of the Government of India as well as different state/UT governments to overcome bottlenecks or hurdles coming in the way of promotions or empanelment”.

On the issue of induction of State/Provincial Service officers to All India Service, Singh said, “Many a times the delay is on account of delay in the cadre review exercise at the end of state/UT governments. For this purpose, also, DoPT keeps continuously reviewing and following up the cases with different state/UT governments.”

“As far as the Punjab Civil Services are concerned, the DoPT has already processed their cases and there were some clarifications from the UPSC, which had to be responded to by the state government. But I have been given to understand that this process will also be concluded very soon,” he added.
