Govt makes it easy for IAS officer to return to Centre


  • IAS officers being repatriated to their parent cadre for appointment as Chief Secretary can now easily come back to central services as they now do not have to face “extended cooling off period”.
  • The extended cooling off period was mandatory for officers who choose to go back to their parent cadre for availing their promotion.
  • The order will mean that officers joining state government as Chief Secretaries before completing scheduled central deputation can revert after serving only cooling off period which is three years for Joint Secretary officers and one year for Additional Secretary at the Centre.
