Sub: Inter Cadre Transfer of All India Service Officers to third cadre on the ground of marriage Clarification in Policy – regarding.
“A deficit cadre is one where there is a maximum percentage of shortfall of direct recruit officers vis-à-vis the direct recruit cadre strength. Shortfall maybe computed on the basis of Civil List of AIS prevailing at the time of the application for Inter-Cadre Transfer. In case of continued refusal by the cadres on which they are borne the officers would be considered for transfer to a third cadre and for this purpose Central Government will first identify three cadres, which have maximum deficit of direct recruit officers as a percentage of all the DR officers sanctioned post and then give a choice to the couple seeking transfer to a third cadre to choose one of those cadres. Thereafter, the concurrence of the concerned cadre would be taken before the couple is transferred to third cadre.”
(i) All pending cases of inter-cadre transfer of officers to third cadre, on the grounds of marriage may be processed accordingly; and
(ii) In pending cases where both the cadres on which the two officers are borne have refused to accept the officers, a fresh attempt may be made to obtain the consent of the two cadres.
