    No. 1-11011/16/2022-CRD

    Dated: 30th September, 2022.

    Office Memorandum


    Subject: Consolidated guidelines on cadre review of Central Civil Services.

    The Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT) is the nodal agency of the Government of India for personnel management policies. As such, although cadre management and cadre reviewing are primarily the concern of individual Cadre Controlling Authorities (CCAs), the responsibility for laying down standards in the matter and for coordination rests with the DoPT in accordance with its role as nodal agency for formulation and evaluation of personnel policies in Government of India.
