By IndianMandarins- 21 Oct 2019


The Centre has issued a stern warning to the Himachal Pradesh government for appointing more than the sanctioned posts of Additional Chief Secretary (ACS). Just before the notification of cadre review, DoPT issued a warning letter to the state government.

It underlines that if appointment to ACS posts exceeds the sanctioned strength, recovery will be done from the beneficiaries and department of personal will declare them as illegal besides that the next review process of HP cadre will also be stopped.

The process was started during the time of the Dhumal government which was continued by the Veer Bhadra government and now it appears to continue in the Jayram led BJP Govt as well.
