Indianmandarins has learnt that the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), directly supervised by the PMO, is acting fast on a proposal to implement Rule FR56J for both Group A&B Services (IAS, IPS, IRS IT, IRS C&CE, IRTS, IRAS, etc).
The DoPT is said to have already completed the evaluation & assessment of 500 officers in the rank of Director belonging to CSS cadre (Central Secretariat Service) who have either completed 30 yrs in service or have attained 50 yrs of age. Currently, the process of reassessing and evaluating officers belonging to Group A&B Services is on.
Under this rule (FR 56J), services of officers who have either completed 30 years in service or reached 50 years of age, whichever comes earlier, will be reviewed. And those who get negative reviews will be given a three-month notice to retire.
