Delay in ad hoc promotion to ASP Grade and posting of IPs in HQ Region

A number of IPs in the line of getting officiating in ASP Grade are unwilling to take up officiating job in ASP grade as the ad hoc promotion yeilds no financial benefit paricularly to those who have already got MACP-II. Moreover, ad hoc promotion entails posting to places not covered under choice due 'uncondtional' clause attached to ad hoc posting. This is another reason why IPs are unwilling for ad hoc promotion. In HQ Region posting of newly passed IPs has been delayed abnormally and the delay is attributed to non-finalisation of names for ad hoc posting of ASPs. The file is moving back and forth. The case is marred  by confusion.
