Subject: – Processing of Transfer applications of GDS.
It is to inform you that in order to streamline transfers of GDS, the Competent Authority has approved developing of an online portal / application for processing their transfer applications. CEPT has already been requested to develop a portal, which is likely to be put in place by the end of December, 2022.
2. In order to ensure seamless transition to the proposed Transfer Portal, following time lines have been decided by the competent authority to process the transfer requests:
(i) GDSs may be allowed to submit their requests for transfer only till 15.10.2022. No application for GDS transfer will be entertained in the manual mode after 15.10.2022 under any circumstances.
(ii) Circles/Regions/Divisions shall finalize all the pending requests for Limited Transfer (received upto 15.10.2022) by 30.11.2022.
(iii) A certificate of ‘nil’ pendency report, duly signed by the DPS (HQ) of the Circle shall be forwarded to this office by 02.12.2022 positively.
(iv) For processing of requests through proposed Transfer Portal, instructions would be issued separately.
