Ministry: Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions

The Appointments Committee of the Cabinet (ACC) has directed that the Search Committee/Search-cum-Selection Committee should recommend panels in the order of merit. The ACC has, however, observed that in some of the cases submitted by various Ministries/Departments, the Selection Committees/Search-cum-Selection Committees are not recommending the panel in order of merit/preference.

In view of the above, the ACC has reiterated that unless statutorily required not to arrange the names in the panel in the order of preference, the Selection Committee/Search-cum-Selection Committee must invariably indicate the order of preference.
