NEW DELHI: The Central Government is considering a major change in the allocation of services to successful candidates of civil services examination.
The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) has asked the department concerned to examine if the services can be allocated after the completion of foundation course, according to an official communique.
The duration of foundation course for officers of almost all the services is three months.
At present, service allocation to the candidates selected on the basis of civil services examination, conducted by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC), is made well before the commencement of the foundation course.
The PMO has desired to examine if service allocation/cadre allocation to probationers selected on the basis of the examination can be made after foundation course, as per the communication sent by the Personnel Ministry to different cadre-controlling authorities. (AGENCIES)
