Dear Comrades,

We have taken up the case with the PGM(F) to give DGMF( L/A ) promotion to the CAOs instead of IFA arrangement.

It is agreed and L/A promotion is considered for the vacant DGMF post at Circle Office. CS is promoted as DGM (Taxation).

The same will be considered for the SSAs also on need basis  after  completion of  BA merger activities.

Thanks to PGM(F) & DGM (F) and Finance wing Officers.
