Office Memorandum

Subject: Clarification on crucial date of determination of age of 56 years for induction in to AIS and its applicability with reference to the year of Select List-regarding.

The undersigned is directed  to refer to the subject cited above and to say that on the directions of Hon’ble Supreme Court, and in consultation with Ministry  of Home Affairs, Ministry of Environment and Forest, UPSC and the State Governments,  the Central Government has decided to raise maximum age limit from  54 years to 56 years for promotion/induction from State Service/Non-State Civil Service to All India Service with effect from the Select List of 2015 with crucial date of determination of age as 01.01.2015. In order to implement  this decision, this  Department  has issued  four  notifications dated  17.03.2015   amending  the following regulations with the stipulation that these amendments will take effect from the date of their publication in the official gazette:-

(i)   Regulation 5 (3) of Indian Administrative Service (Appointment by Promotion) Regulations, 1955;

(ii)    Regulation  5  (3)   of  Indian   Police  Service  (Appointment   by  Promotion)
Regulations,  1955;

(iii)    Regulation  5  (3)   of  Indian   Forest  Service  (Appointment   by  Promotion) Regulations,  1966;  and

(iv)    Proviso   1      below   Regulation   4(1 )(iii)   of   Indian  Administrative    Service
(Appointment by Selection)  Regulations, 1997

2.       Further, as decided by the Government, anomaly in Non-SCS Select List vis-a-vis  SCS Select  List for the vacancies arising  during  the same year   has been removed through OM dated 17.3.2015.  As per this OM, for the vacancies arising during the period  1   1.2014    to 31.12.2014,   the Select list  of Non-SCS officers will be styled as Select List-2014-A  instead of Select List 2015. The Select List of SCS officers had already been styled coinciding with the year of the vacancies from the year 2010,  after the clarificatory OM dated 25. 08.2010.  Thus,  for the vacancies arising  during the year 2015 (between  1.1.2015 to 31.12.2015),   the Select List for both SCS officers as well as Non-SCS officers will  be styled as Select  List-2015.

3.       Now,  for  the  benefit  of  all  stakeholders,   it  is  clarified  that  the  above amendments are applicable for the Select Lists of 2015 (vacancies arising between 01.01.2015   to 31.12.2015)    and onwards with crucial date for determination of age as 1st January of that Select List year.  For example, for the Select List of 2015,  the upper age limit for consideration will be 56 years with crucial date for determination of age as 01.01.2015.

4.       In so far as the Select Lists of State Service/Non-State Civil Service officers of 2014/2014-A  to  be prepared for the  vacancies arisen  between 1.1.2014   to

31.12.2014   are concerned, the same would be prepared in accordance with the regulations existing in 2014.  In other words, up-to the Select Lists of 2014/2014-A, the maximum age limit for consideration for induction into AIS would be 54 years and the same would be reckoned as on 1st January of the respective Select List year.

5 (i).  For further clarity,  for example,  10 and 2 vacancies arose during 01.  01.2014 to  31.12.2014     in  West   Bengal  cadre  in  the  SCS  and  Non-SCS  category respectively.  The Select List for SCS officers would be styled  as Select List 2014 and for Non-SCS officers, it would be styled as Select List 2014-A. The Selection Committee Meetings would be held in 2015 and the upper age limit will   be 54 years  with crucial date of determination as  01.01.2014     for both the category of officers.

(ii) Similarly,  if 6 and 2 vacancies arise during 01.01.2015    to 31.12.2015  in  Odisha cadre in the SCS and Non-SCS category respectively, the Select Lists   would be styled  as  Select  List  2015  for  both  the  category  of  officers.  The  Selection Committee Meetings for Select  List 2015 would be held in 2016 and the upper age limit will be 56 years  with crucial date of determination as   01.01.2015    for both SCS and Non-SCS officers.

6.    All  State  Governments/Cadre  Controlling  Authorities  and  UPSC  are, therefore,  requested to implement the aforementioned amendments in accordance with the above clarifications.
