DoPT may put 3-years gap for posts in ministerial staff
After tweaking the order on minister’s staff, the DoPT is now reviewing the government order to relax the criteria and the likely changes are expected to limit the “time period” of serving a minister in the last three years of the UPA regime for banning appointments of officers and personal staff to the new NDA ministers.
A revised order is likely to be issued once the DoPT’s new proposal gets cleared by the PMO. The Prime Minister is the cabinet minister in-charge of DoPT and is the competent authority.
It can be recalled that the appointment of a private secretary to home minister Rajnath Singh got stalled after his choice in Alok Singh, a 1995 batch IPS officer, did not get the PMO’s clearance as Mr Singh had served as private secretary to former external affairs minister Salman Khurshid.
The appointments of Abhinav Kumar and Rajesh Kumar, as PS to minister of state for Home Kiren Rijiju and minister of state for external affairs V.K. Singh respectively, were also not cleared. Abhinav was PS with Shashi Tharoor and Mr Rajesh was PS with Chandresh Kumari Katoch.
