  2. Shumaila! Please clarify the following position. In my department, Post of Additional Director was 100% promotion basis till 2013. In 2013, basis of promotion was revised as 80% and remaining 20% as initial appointment.

    There are 4 positions of Additional Director in our department (Finance & Audit). Please confirm the following:
    (i) is revision be made from effective date or retrospectively?
    (ii) Priority shall be given to promotion or initial appointment?
