Subject: Consolidated guidelines on cadre review of Central Group ‘A’ Services.
The undersigned is directed to say that provisions governing the process of cadre review of Central Group ‘A’ Services are contained in various Office Memoranda issued by the Department of Personnel and Training and the Department of Expenditure. As a part of this Department’s endeavour to keep the
personnel policies relevant to current and future needs, these provisions have been reviewed in consultation with various stakeholders and it has been decided to issue a consolidated and revised set of guidelines on cadre review. The revised guidelines are given below. Besides, the broad issues concerning cadre review
have been elaborated in the revised Monograph on Cadre Review of Central Group ‘A’ Services enclosed herewith. The list of existing Central Group ‘A’ Services is
2. Formulation of Proposal
(i) The proposal would be formulated, to the extent possible, in consultation with the representatives of service association (s). While drafting the proposal, all issues like expected changes in the Organization’s activities, automation, amendment in the business processes, recruitment planning, plugging the skill
gaps, cadre structure, career progression, financial implications etc. must be analyzed and made part of the proposal. These issues and their impact on cadre structure have been discussed in Section-5 and Section-6 of the Monograph.
(ii) Full functional justification for each creation of post/upgradation should be given. A job evaluation exercise may be undertaken for each category of posts so as to ensure that different grades are assigned corresponding level of functions and responsibilities.
(iii) It may be ensured that the cadre review would not have an adverse impact on the feeder grade.
3. Reference to Department of Personnel and Training/Department of
(i) The proposal should be referred to Department of Personnel and Training with the approval of Integrated Finance Division and the Minister in charge.
(ii) The Cadre Controlling Authority would also give a certificate that there is no Court Case pending having a bearing on the cadre review.
(iii) The name (s) of contact officer (s) for further/additional information may be clearly indicated in the reference.
(iv) The proposal should be examined vis-à-vis the checklist given in Section-6 of the Monograph to ensure that the proposal is complete in all respect.
4. Financial Implications
(i) The proposal having additional financial implications would be entertained strictly on functional considerations like consistent increase in workload, horizontal expansion in activities etc.
(ii) While calculating the additional expenditure, the impact of Non-Functional Upgradation may be taken into account. The calculation sheet must be enclosed with the proposal.
5. Procedure for cadre review
(i) Every cadre should be reviewed once every five years. The review should be first carried out by the Cadre Controlling Authority, preferably in consultation with the representatives of the service/cadre in question. However, if it is convinced after such a review that no change in the cadre structure is required, the
decision should be conveyed to DoPT with the approval of Minister in charge.
(ii) The cadre review proposal would be prepared by the Cadre Controlling Authority in the form of a Note for Committee of Secretaries. DoPT would obtain the approval of Secretary (P) and then refer it to Department of Expenditure for approval of Secretary (Expenditure).
(iii) The Note would then be placed before the Cadre Review Committee by DoPT.
(iv) Based on the recommendation of Cadre Review Committee, the proposal would be submitted for MOS (PP)’s approval. It would then be referred to the Department of Expenditure for Finance Minister’s approval.
(v) The Cadre Controlling Authority would then take approval of Cabinet. The Note for Cabinet should ideally be prepared within a month of the Cadre Review Committee’s approval.
6. Composition of Cadre Review Committee-The Cadre Review Committee would comprise the following functionaries:
(i) Cabinet Secretary Chairman
(ii) Secretary of the Ministry controlling the cadre Member
(iii) Secretary, Department of Personnel and Training Member
(iv) Secretary, Ministry of Finance, Department of
(v) The senior most member of the service/cadre
7. Restriction on direct recruitment-There is a restriction on direct recruitment to the extent that it should not exceed 3% of the total cadre strength.
The authority to relax the condition rests with DoPT. It has now been decided to do away with this restriction. The Cadre Controlling Authorities are, however, advised not to resort to any bulk recruitment as it would create a bulge in the structure leading to stagnation at later stage. This may be kept in view while
projecting recruitment planning.
