The new year is expected to bring fresh faces in the AICC Secretariat as many party functionaries have been inducted in the Central government.
At present, nearly half a dozen vacancies lie in the party hierarchy, but sources indicated that a reshuffle has been postponed to the new year.
They said there was no "immediate urgency" for filling up the vacant posts and adhere to the 'one-person one-post' formula as no elections were near.
Four party general secretaries were inducted into the Union Council of Ministers in the second term of the UPA government.
Ghulam Nabi Azad, Mukul Wasnik, Prithviraj Chavan and V Narayanasami were inducted into the Cabinet.
Azad is in-charge of party affairs in Tamil Nadu and Orissa while Wasnik is in-charge of Rajasthan and Delhi. Chavan is in-charge of Haryana and Jammu and Kashmir.
Law Minister M Veerappa Moily is in-charge of Andhra Pradesh, where the announcement of a separate state of Telengana has created a row.
Among others holding dual charges are C P Joshi, the Union Minister for Rural Development who is the Rajasthan Congress chief and Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, the PCC chief of West Bengal.
