Umakant Tripathi and Narendra Singh set to create history – officers joined as Naib Tehsildar, now recommended for IAS

Finally history of sorts is set to be created in Uttar Pradesh bureaucracy with Umakant Tripathi and Narendra Singh – who joined as Naib Tehsildar – have been recommended in the Departmental Promotion (DPC) to become IAS officers.

The DPC meeting was held in the chairmanship of chief Durga Shankar Mishra on Monday. The committee cleared 16 names against 22 vacancies to be filled through civil services quota, which is 33% of the total strength of IAS cadre. Candidature of six officers were withheld as departmental enquiry is pending against them.

Tripathi and Singh – both having climbed up the ladder through state civil services – have made it to the pack of Selection list 2022 which includes state civil service officers from 2004 and 2006 batch.

This is for the first time that officers from state's subordinate services are getting promotion to the highest ladder of bureaucratic system. Generally officers entering directly into state civil services as deputy collector or sub divisional magistrates (SDM) could rise to the level of IAS.

The rule for the promotion to IAS from state civil service is that the names of PCS officers whose age is not more than 56 years and have completed 8 years of service in this cadre can be sent for promotion to IAS.

“Both of these officers meet these standards. Hence their names have been recommended to become IAS,” said a senior officer.

In Uttar Pradesh, it takes at least 8 years from a Naib Tehsildar to become a state civil service officer in the grade of deputy collector and then again ideally at least 8 years to be eligible for promotion to IAS, which practically takes double the minimum time period required.

The job of Naib Tehsildar is to collect land revenue in rural areas with the help of inspectors.
