A total of 136 deputy secretaries have been promoted to joint secretary rank, says a Public Administration Ministry order on Sunday.
According to the PA Ministry officials, only 46 newly promoted joint secretaries were given promotion from Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS) 17th batch.
The rest of the newly promoted joint secretaries were left out of promotion during the previous promotions.
With the new inclusion, the number of joint secretaries stood at 999. Before the promotion, the number was 863 in the civil administration.
After the promotion, the officials were made Officers On Special duty (OSD). They would be assigned for new places soon, according to the PA ministry officials.
Besides, 12 deputy
commissioners, who were promoted to the post of joint secretaries, have been asked to stay at their working places they were working before the promotion.
Earlier on June 11 this year, they were transferred to different places as deputy secretary. However, the PA Ministry on Sunday cancelled their transfer order and asked them to work as 'insito'.
