Centre invites lateral entry at joint secretary-level posts: Here are 10 things to know about it

  The central government has announced opening up 10 senior-level bureaucratic posts in several departments through lateral entry to people working in the private sector. The move, which is receiving bouquets and brickbats, will pave the way for participation of private sector professionals in policymaking and implementation of government programmes. Advertisements published in leading newspapers Sunday stated that the government was looking for 10 “outstanding individuals”, even from the private sector, with expertise in the areas of revenue, financial services, economic affairs, agriculture, cooperation and farmers’ welfare, road transport and highway, shipping, environment, forests and climate change, new and renewable energy, civil aviation and commerce. These positions are usually filled by officers selected through Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) exams.
