    I was promoted from the past of P.A (Regular ) to the Post of PS(A&B) merged w.e.f. 1.3.1996. Pvt. Secretaries are also eligible for NFS as per the order of Officers in the stated above for NFS to Section Officer w.e.f. 1.1.1996 whether on adhoc basis or on regular basis. But I was given NFS in the year 2009 after four years from the regular post of PS w.e.f.1st July, 2005. So after completing four years regular service w.e.f. from 2005 I was given NFS in July, 2009. Earlier the Order was for Regular service now as the above said order has come we are elgible for NFS w.e.f. 1.1.1996 whether on adhoc basis service or on regular basis service. I request the DOP&T for issuance of an order in the same terms and conditions as given to S.O.;s in the cadre of CSS. In the cadre of CSSS similar order should be placed by the DOPT. Because Sos and PS are similarly placed gazetted Officers in the scale of Rs.6500-10500 in 1996. Whereas the NFS scale is Rs8,000 - 13,500/-. So I am at loss since March, 1996 as I was kept in the scale of Rs.6500-10500 upto 6th Pay Commission's report. I am a retired Private Secretary since June, 2011 as I was working in the Ministry of Coal.

    similar order should also be issued by the DOP&T for the cadre of CSSS as per been done in the year 1996 and 2005 granting NFS to PS (A&B) merged because the Sos and PS are similarly placed scale of CSS and CSSS (Gazeted Post ) in the Pay Scale of NFS : Rs.8000-13500 ( pre-revised scale) I request the DOPT to kindly issue a separte order on the same terms and conditions as has been given to Sos of adhoc or regular service since 1.1.1996.

  3. I request DOP&T to issue similar orders for the cadre of CSSS as was done in the year 2003 and 2005. Becausel the Private Secretaries are equivalent to S.O. grade gazetted officers of CSSS in the NFS pre-revised salce of Rs.8,000-13500/-.

  4. I belong to AFHQ Clerical Service. I was promoted adhoc SO in Apr 2008 and regular SO on 1.4.2009. I retired as SO on 31.12.2012. Will this order applicable to me ? Please confirm.
