Don’t appoint officers as personal staff who served under UPA: NDA ministers told

modiAgencies, New Delhi
The new government has asked all its ministers not to appoint officials who had served in key positions in the UPA government as their personal staff.
They have been specifically advised not to engage services of any official who had worked as personal staff of the last government’s ministers, official sources said.

The directive came after Prime Minister Narendra Modi earlier this week had put on hold appointments of various private secretaries who had worked with ministers in the previous regime on the staff of new ministers.
The matter was discussed with the officials in the Prime Minister’s Officer and Cabinet Secretariat following which, the Cabinet Secretariat asked the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) to issue a directive in this regard.

A note asking ministries not to appoint such officers as their personal staff has been issued by the DoPT yesterday, they said.
The government had earlier asked all ministries to process the appointment of PSs and OSDs to ministers through Appointments Committee of Cabinet (ACC).

All PSs and OSDs to ministers can be appointed only after the ACC’s approval. In a related development, as many as 22 officers, majority of them belonging to IAS, posted as Private Secretaries (PSs) and Officers on Special Duty (OSDs) in the last UPA government have been put on a compulsory wait by the Centre.
