OVER TWO-DOZEN IAS officers are waiting with their fingers crossed for the dates for departmental promotion committee (DPC) meetings which are due for 1972, 1982, 1991 and 1994 batch IAS officers.
DPCs for IAS officers’ promotions have been held in first week of January during the BJP rule. But this time round no dates have been announced so far.
Confirming IAS officers’ queries, sources in the General Administration Department said the recent hike in the cadre strength of IAS officers has also caused delay in fixing DPC meetings. For DPC of 1973 batch, only Pradeep Bhargava is due for promotion to the Chief Secretary grade.
Half a dozen IAS officers of 1982 batch are likely to be promoted to Principal Secretary and another half a dozen of 1991 batch to Secretary rank.
A separate DPC to accord selection grade to 1994 batch IAS officers is also due. Six officers of 1982 batch including Pravesh Sharma, Rakesh Agrawal, J S Mathur, S R Mohanty, Raghav Chandra and Devraj Birdi are likely to be promoted as Principal Secretaries.
As far as 1991 batch is concerned, over half a dozen officers including Ashok Kumar Barnwal, Pramod Agrawal, Satish Chandra Mishra, Vishwamohan Upadhyaya, M K Varshaney, Arun Tiwari, S K Mishra and Sudha Chaudhary are posted in the State. They are likely to be promoted as Secretary.
