UPSC returns KAS officers' promotion list

UPSC returns KAS officers' promotion list

The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) has returned the KAS officers’ list sent by the state government recommending their names for promotion to IAS, citing technical grounds.

The UPSC asked the state to submit a fresh list, along with reasons for dropping the name of one particular officer in the 2004 KAS batch. Though the officer was compulsorily retired, the state Department of Personnel and Administrative Reforms (DPAR) had not submitted the proceedings related to his case before sending the list.

The state had sent a list of 56 KAS officers for promotion as IAS officers to fill vacancies.

The Karnataka State Backward Classes Awareness Forum, on Wednesday, submitted a memorandum to the UPSC, urging to withhold the promotions of KAS officers to IAS, till the final verdict in court cases related to many candidates is pronounced.

If the UPSC considers the list sent by the state for promotion, without waiting for the final verdict of the court, it amounts to great injustice to several genuine candidates, he said.
