the length of service and appraisal (APAR) will have 25% weightage each, and the rest 20% weightage will be on the interview, according to the revised scheme of induction of state officers into IAS, IPS and IFoS. If anyone has a suggestion, he can still write to DoPT or call at 011-23092765 by January 23, 2014, and demand for modification of the proposed scheme.
The revised scheme will be valid for three years after which a review is expected to be undertaken. Currently, officers below the age of 54 are allowed to apply, but the maximum age could subsequently be brought down so to enable selection of younger people, DoPT adds in its revised scheme.
Unlike fresh recruits, a promoted officer can’t however be posted outside his own state.
