a. LSG Officials of other Divisions .
b. Senior most T/S PAs on Adhoc Basis..
Cases where Officials cannot be housed in the same Division..
There may be instances where the number of officials would be higher than the Promotional Posts, then in that case the officials have to opt for the nearest Divisions..
Filling of LSG Posts under Circle Cadre...
Since the LSG Posts are Circle Cadre and liable for allocation within the circle , Initial allotment for the Promoted officials would be within the Region and within the Division as well..
This allotment would be based on the number of Posts created in the Parent Division of the Official.
If the Official falls junior most in the Promotion list for a DIVISION and if there is no sufficient LSG Posts in the Division , the official may be allotted to the Divisions where there is sufficient Posts . This would be within the Region Only..
Surplus Officials of the Region
If there are officials surplus after filling up of all the LSG Posts in the Region , there are chances that an Officials would be alloted to the next Region.

2. Officials likely to Retire within a year or three and if there is no chance of MACPs may opt to Decline their Promotion.
3. Officials like to get MACP within 6 Years should accept the Promotion or else there would be heavy financial loss in the Retirement Benefits.
4. There are wider chances that those officials retiring within 10 years would get promoted upto HSG I level within 10 years.

Financial Impact on officials Posted to Rural Areas where the HRA is lesser than the Actual Drawn and Offices with quarters facility.
1. Considerable loss to income / allowances would be there for officials posted in stations with lesser HRA than actually drawn by the Official.
2. Officials may also have to loose full HRA allowance if the Post Office in a rural area is being attached with Quarters . ( Of course many quarters are resided by ghosts)
3. Shifting of Family and creation of new establishment at the new place would also cost them more.
