With an aim to address the stagnation in the Indian Information Service (IIS) and improve the career prospects, the government today gave its nod for the restructuring of its “group A” cadre.
The restructuring will involve addition of two posts at apex level, five at higher administrative grade level and 19 posts at senior administrative grade level with matching reduction at other levels.
“The restructuring will address the problem of existing stagnation in the IIS Cadre and will improve the career prospects of IIS officers. The cadre review exercise will result in better functioning of media and communication arms of the government,” an official statement said.
The Union Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave its approval to the cadre review which comes in the backdrop of ongoing efforts to expand the outreach of pro-people policies of the government and the need to disseminate information of such measures.
