    These empanellment are a fraud. The Government of India need to re-examine the promotion procedure.

    The post and rank of Joint Secretary to Government of India is equivalent to Major General in the Indian Armed Forces.

    It takes a minimum of 32 to 36 years for an officer (entry through the NDA exam) in the Indian Armed Forces (Army, Nay and Air Force) to get promoted to the rank of SAG scale.

    How is it that the IAS and IPS officers are getting promoted to SAG scale in a minimum of 21 to maximum of 24 years of basic service?

    There is a gap of 10 to 12 years between the rank of Major General and Joint Secretary in IAS/IPS!

    On the other hand, Central Secretariat Service (Group A) and others like ITS get promoted to SAG scale in 28 to 32 years of service.
