What is the News?
The Central paramilitary forces are all set to soon implement a software-based rotational transfer policy between the hard and soft posting of their personnel.
What is Software Based Rotational Transfer Policy?
In 2019, the Ministry of Home Affairs had asked the Central paramilitary forces to implement the software-based rotational transfer policy between the hard and soft posting of their personnel. The policy is under an advanced stage of implementation.
Under this policy, the next posting of a jawan or officer shall be decided as per a point-based system or weightage linked to his previous post.
What was the need for this system?
The software-based transfer policy would minimise Human Interface. This will eliminate the scope for any arbitrariness or bias on the part of seniors.
Moreover, software-based systems would also ensure that no personnel has to serve in a ‘hard’ posting for long periods and gets a ‘soft’ posting breather in between.
