What is the difference between Assistant in CSS & Assistant in other Ministries ??

There are offices attached to the different ministries, while Assistant in CSS gets posting in those ministries, Assistant in Other Ministries/Department/Organization gets posting in those attached Offices. So, the work of Assistant in Other Ministries/Department/Organization also differs form Assistant in CSS.

We have got detailed description of Assistant in Other Ministries/Department/Organization post from one of our friend posted in Passport Office which is one of the department under Ministry of External Affairs.

The Job Profile as Assistant in Passport Office is similar to the job profile of Assistant in all the other Departments/Organizations.

If you got this post and have not visited Passport Office yet, then we suggest you to visit it. You will get to know the job you have to do being an Assistant there.

However, We know some of us belongs to the place where no passport office exist. So, for them to know about the job they will be doing soon, next few paras will help them to clear the air.

An Assistant Job in passport Office is public dealing Job (Different from Assistant in CSS, where no public dealing). His job is to verify the documents of passport applicants. Dealing Assistant submits the files to Superintendent who in turn submits to PGO (Passport Grant Officer).

As we know the passport application process is completely on-line now and there are deadlines for every step in the whole process. So, the workload is immense at some passport offices. You have to work on Saturday/Sunday if required but you will get extra pay for that. For example – There are events like Passport Mela which usually scheduled on weekends.

There is incentive scheme also for particular work. You can earn up to 33% of your salary in this incentive scheme. We don’t have information about the incentive policy in other departments/organization under this post.
