Cadre Review Objectives and list of Cadre Reviews done in last 5 years

Department of Personnel and Training (DOPT) has released the following chart which is containing the details of Cadre Review conducted in various Services as on October 2007. The chart also contains the list of services in which Cadre Review was not conducted on account of non receipt of cadre review proposals from the respective Cadre controlling authorities.

Objectives of Cadre Review:

The main purpose of a cadre review is to restructure a cadre in such a way as to remove the deficiencies which might be existing at the time of the constitution of a service or have crept in subsequently and ensure that the cadre structure satisfies the functional, structural and personnel considerations. Cadre review provides an opportunity to overcome various bottlenecks, remove existing distortions and bring about rationalisation of cadre structure so as to improve the efficiency and morale of the cadre officers and thereby enhance the effectiveness of the Service in the fulfilment of the objectives for which it has been established.

3.4 The major part of the cadre review exercise concerns advance projection of manpower requirements over the review period and the planning of recruitment for this period. Rationalisation of the cadre from the functional, structural and personnel angles is the other major objective of a cadre review. Specifically, the main objectives of cadre review are to:

i) estimate future manpower requirements on a scientific basis for a period of 5 years at a time,

ii) Plan recruitment in such a way as to avoid future promotional blocks and at the same time prevent gaps building up,

iii) so restructure the cadre as to harmonise the functional needs with the legitimate career expectations of its members and thus

iv) to enhance the effectiveness of the service.
