An analysis of APARs generated on ‘SPARROW‘ reveals that a sizeable number of officers are yet to be mapped up on the system and their APARs are pending for generation. It is necessary that the data in respect of APARs generated in each Ministry across all the grades of CSS, should be analysed to find out the gaps with reference to total strength of officers in a particular grade. In the above context the Ministries/Departments are requested to provide their inputs pertaining to their Department as per the following proforma.
