It is to further bring to your kind notice that as per above orders all the ASPs promoted to PS Gr. B cadre had to be relieved from their former assignments within 15 days from the date of issue of order by Directorate. It has also stated in Directorate’s above captioned letter that, in case, an officer is not willing to accept his promotion (including those 9 officers whose debarment period will be over in February/March 2017), his declination letter in writing should be sent to Directorate within 30 days from the date of issue of order, failing which, it shall be presumed that he has declined the promotion.
