The undersigned is directed to invite attention to para 3 (iii) of this Department’s O.M.

It was subsequently clarified vide this Department’s O.M. No. 21011/3/83-Estt (C ) dated 24.2.84 that the provision of para 3(iii) of O.M. of 19.5.83 is primarily intended for organized services. The distinction between an organized service and isolated posts for purpose of probation for promoters was made because it was felt that the posts included in a service have generally identifiable and specified functions and at each level the subject matter death with is the same, though there is a difference in the level of responsibilities. The matter has bean re-examined in this Department and it has been found that even in the case of isolated posts unless the qualifications prescribed and the nature of functions are strictly related, the method of promotion is not being prescribed in the Recruitment Rules. A group of related isolated posts have also identifiable and specified functions and generally there is only difference in the level of responsibility rather than in the nature of dating performed at different levels. It has, therefore been decide there consulting the Union Public Service Commission that the promotion of para 3(iii) of O.M. dated 19.5.83 referred to above will also be application to isolated posts.
