PMO returns the JS empanelment file of 1998 batch IAS



‘Indianmandarins’ learns that the Prime Minister’s Office has returned the file pertaining to the Joint Secretary Empanelment of 1998 batch IAS officers. As many as 54 officers are aspiring to see themselves on the list out of which only 42 have brighter prospects.

PM has made his intent clear to the authorities that he wanted to bring down the constant gap (in JS empanelment) between IAS and other services early this year.

The very aspiration of PM is being cited as the prime reason of returning the file to DOPT.
