The government has promoted 136 officials holding the rank of deputy secretary to the post of joint secretary.

They were attached to the public administration ministry as officers on special duty as part of the procedure following an order on Sunday, reports bdnews24.com.

Later, 12 deputy commissioners elevated to joint secretaries were shifted to different offices under a separate order. But they will continue to serve as deputy commissioners until their replacements take office.
