Change in recruitment process for IAS, IPS via promotion quota

A state service officer may have to go through written test and interview to get promoted to IAS and IPS cadre under a revised scheme proposed by the government.

‘It has been approved in principle, to consider a few changes in the scheme of selection process for recruitment to the promotion quota of various cadres of All India Services,’ minister of state for Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension V Narayanasamy said in a written reply in the RSajya Sabha.

As per the existing regulations, the assessment of the suitability of a candidate is made on the basis of his service records.

‘As per the revised scheme, it is proposed to assess the candidate on the basis of four components i.e. Written Examination, Length of Service, Assessment of Performance Appraisal Reports and Interviews,’ he said.

The All India Services comprise Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Police Service (IPS) and Indian Forest Service.
