|6||Stenographer Grade 'D'||1282*|
*A number of Ministries/Departments have not undertaken the exercise for optimization of direct recruitment to civilian posts during 2001-2009. Therefore, filling up of these posts in these Ministries/Departments would be subject to clarification of adherence to optimization exercise.
2. The above-mentioned revised Cadre strength has been allocated amongst the participating Cadre Units as indicated in the Annexure to this OM. The allocation has been made in accordance with the following principles:-
(i) The total sanctioned strength of CSSS personnel in each Cadre Unit has been kept unchanged, while the sanctioned strength in various grades of CSSS has been revised.
(ii) 25 newly created posts of Sr. PPS have been allocated to Secretary and equivalent level officer in Ministries/Departments participating in CSSS.
(iii) 625 newly created posts of PPS have been allocated against Joint Secretaries and equivalent level officers working in different Ministries/Departments participating in CSSS, as far as possible, of functional justification basis.
(iv) The 400 upgraded posts of PAs to PS grade have been distributed among the Cadre Units by taking into account the percentage of increase of the upgraded posts with reference to the total sanctioned strength of PS grade. Consequently, the number of posts in PA grade has also been reduced.
(v) The sanction strength in the Stenographer Grade 'D' has been reduced of the extent the number of posts allocated in the grades of Sr. PPS and PPS (i.e.650). Accordingly the sanctioned strength of Steno. Grade 'D' had been reduced. Some minor adjustment have also been made in cases where sufficient Stenographer Grade 'D' were not available.
(vi) Since a number of Ministries/Departments have not undertaken the exercise for optimization of direct recruitment to civilian posts during 2001-2009, filling up of posts of Stenographer Grade 'D' in these Ministries/Departments would be subject to clarification of adherence to optimization exercise.
3. The Cadre Units are requested to further distribute the allocated posts amongst their sub-Cadres, wherever applicable, by following the above-mentioned principles.
4. Necessary amendment in the Central Secretariat Stenographers' Service Rules 2010 would be made separately.
