The recruitment of personnel from IB on deputation basis for appointment to the post of Assistant Director in the PMO has been exempted from consultation with the UPSC, a notification issued today by Personnel Ministry said.

It means that the file relating to the appointment of IB officers in the PMO need not go to the UPSC, which is the recruiting body for them, an official said.

As per Article 320 of the Constitution, the UPSC shall be consulted on all matters relating to methods of recruitment to civil services and for certain civil group A posts.
