New Delhi: In order to expose bureaucracy to varied challenging situations, the Centre has directed all departments to ensure rotation of officers working at the same place for more than their fixed tenure.

The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has said that all transfers of the Central Secretariat Service (CSS) officers, who have completed their tenure in a particular ministry, should be completed this year in a phased manner.

"The Rotational Transfer Policy of CSS officers prescribes a fixed tenure of posting for an officer of the Central Secretariat Service in a particular Ministry/Department.

"One of the objectives of the Rotational Transfer Policy is gaining of exposure by the officers to different challenging situations on varied Ministries/Departments which will not only help them individually to progress in their career but result in the betterment of the administrative system as a whole," an office memorandum by the DoPT said.

As per the chalked out plan, Section officers (both regular and ad hoc) who have completed their tenure (which varies from 7-14 years) service in a Ministry/Department has to be transferred by March, June and September this year respectively.

Whereas, Under Secretaries who have completed stipulated term of 5-7 years and office assistants needs to be relocated by April, July and October this year.
