Single Window System in UPSC for Direct Recruitment

In order to avoid delay in appointment through Direct Recruitment that
is required by various Ministry and departments, UPSC which is the
authority for such appointments has introduced a new system called
Single window system for sending the proposals by the Ministries and
Departments to UPSC for direct recruitment.

As per the new system, the Ministry which requires direct recruitment
for filling up the posts available with it for effectove functioning
has send an officer not below the level of under secretary to appear
in UPSC's office after seeking prior appointment.

In an attempt to cut down delays for direct recruitment for ministries
through interviews, the UnionPublic Service Commission (UPSC) has
introduced a Single Window System for accepting requisitions.

As per the Office Memorandum dated 04.07.2012 issued by DOPT in this
regard, the officer who is deputed for attending the meeting at UPSC
under Single Window System should be in possession of documents
relating to latest recruitment rules, service rules, and the
notification issued regarding educational qualifications for the post.

Presently, there are lot of complaints from Ministry side that
proposals sent by them are not considered by UPSC in time.

Mainly appointment of technocrats are often required by Ministries the
posts for which they need to appoint technically skilled persons based
on the requirement. Conducting of general exams in this case will not
be helpful.

For example, deputy chairman of Planning Commission Mr. Montek Singh
Ahluwalia is not an IAS officer. However, he has been appointed to
serve a purpose directly by UPSC based on request of concerned

Read the Office memorandum No: 39011/05/2012-Estt (B) dated 04.07.2012
issued by DOPT for more details.
