Subject:Filling up of vacancies in grade of Inspector of Income Tax‑reg.
Some CCA Regions have sought a clarification, whether the Steno quota for promotion to Income Tax Inspector (ITI) which remains unfilled in a particular year, gets merged into a common pool of ITl vacancies for the next vacancy year and is redistributed in the prescribed ratio of 3:1 among Ministerial and steno cadres or, remains earmarked forever for filling up by Steno cadres only.
2. The issue has been examined. It is clear from a reading of RRs that the vacancy in ITI grade for the relevant vacancy year is to be divided among Ministerial and steno cadres in the prescribed ratio. It is a settled matter that vacancies remaining unfilled after conduction of DPCs, of any year get carried forward and merged with the vacancies arising in the next year. Thus, an unfilled post of Steno quota merges into the common pool of Ill vacancies for the next year, and will be redistributed between the Ministerial and Steno cadres, to be filled in the manner prescribed in the RRs of ITI of 1969, as amended in 1986 and read with CBDT order dated 04.06.2001 and dated 07.03.2005.
