11 out of 17 new joint secretaries -- appointed last week -- belong to non-IAS; IFoS, CSS officers dominate list

THE appointment of 17 joint secretary level officers and a repatriation that received the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet’s nod last week, has clearly demonstrated one point: Non-IAS officers have begun to gain grounds in limited space of JS postings in Central government ministries and departments.
