The letter stated that a meeting of Departmental Selection Board (DSB) for promotion from BS-18 to BS-19 is being convened shortly, and all eligible officers are requested to complete their awaited Performance Evaluation Reports (PERs) and Declaration of Assets (DAs) up to 30.06.2022.

However, the scrutiny of personnel records has revealed that a majority of officers have not yet completed their PERs and DAs.

I would like to emphasize that completing the PERs and submitting DAs is mandatory for promotion to selection grades under Civil Servants Promotion (BS-18 to BS-21) Rules, 2019. Therefore, I urge all eligible officers to submit their documents latest by 06th April, 2023, to ensure their consideration for promotion in the forthcoming DSB meeting.

I would also like to request the Reporting/Countersigning Officers to immediately forward the PERs of the eligible officers to the Board (ERM Section) without any delay.

Please note that any officer who fails to furnish the required documents by the due date of 06.04.2023 will be responsible for non-consideration/deferment/supersession. I understand that the Board is trying hard to ensure that all eligible officers are considered for promotion, and your timely cooperation is essential for the same.
