Read the following:-
1. G.O.Ms.No.147 G.A.(Ser.D) Dept., dated 16.5.2003.

3. From the Secreary, APPSC,Lr.No.465/RR/2/2004,
In Andhra Pradesh State and Subordinate Service Rules, 1996 joining time is prescribed both for appointment by direct recruitment and for appointment by promotion / transfer. In case of appointment by promotion / transfer the existing time limit is 15 days from the date of receipt of the appointment order. Failure to join duty in the post for which the employee is appointed by promotion / transfer results in forfeiture of the present and future rights of promotion / appointment by transfer. As a result of the above condition, a government employee who does not join in the promotion post within the stipulated time loses his promotion rights to the next higher category permanently. It is noticed that for several reasons employees could not join in the promotion posts in the allowed time. To mitigate the hardship to the Government employees, the Government decided to consider, such of those Government employees who could not join duty in the promotion posts, in the next panel year. Accordingly Government have decided to issue the following amendment to rule 11(b) of Andhra Pradesh State and Subordinate Service Rules,1996.
2. The following notification will be published in the Extraordinary issue of the Andhra Pradesh Gazette:
