The subject of posting and transfers is an important personnel function. It is complementary to officer’s career-planning/management. It is only through a balance and correct adjustment of officers, according to experience and qualifications that a corps of competent and qualified civil servants is provided to the society. The achievement of this laudable objective is ensured mainly through postings, based on experience, qualifications, and merit. Proper career management envisages that an officer should be provided equal opportunities of holding secretariat/staff and field appointments so that he may acquire right type of experience at various stages of his career. Rotation between field and secretariat/staff appointments, therefore, need hardly be emphasized.
