Government of Telangana will formulate an action plan soon for giving promotions to its employees. Preparations have already been started to promote senior employees and to fill up vacant posts. The meeting of the Standing Committee headed by Mr. Pradeep Chandra, Special Chief Secretary will soon hold its meeting in which guidelines for promotions would be finalized.
Reliable sources informed that there is a system of promoting employees who have put in more than three years service in a particular cadre. Stress is being laid to relax this condition in order to fill up the vacant posts. A ban has been imposed on the constitution of Departmental Committees for promotioning employees. It is reported that many positions would fall vacant if promotions are given to lower cadres. These vacant posts could be filled up through Public Service Commission. The functioning of various departments is getting affected due to vacant positions. The attention of the officials of departments has been drawn to full up vacant posts. It is expected that Government of Telangana would take appropriate steps to promote its employees soon.
