SSC CHSL Transfer Policy

The SSC CHSL transfer policy includes two types of transfers: regular transfers and mutual transfers, with specific provisions for female employees. Regular transfers allow employees to request a transfer to their native postal circle after serving for at least four years.

Mutual transfers are available after two years of service and involve trading places with another employee in your hometown, provided both parties are in the same thread and have matching categories. Female employees enjoy a more flexible transfer procedure, often allowing them to choose their preferred zone and typically being stationed close to their residence.

Can I get a Home Posting in SSC CHSL?

For several reasons, many candidates want a home posting on the SSC CHSL Exam. While filling out the preference-cum-post form, you can fill in your preference for your post and job location. The final decision, however, lies in the hands of SSC. Home Posting depends on the following percussions.

  • Rank and Location: If your rank qualifies you for a position in your hometown and state, like a DEO in Delhi.
  • Vacancy: If there is an open position in your hometown for the role you are selected for.
  • Transfer Requests: If you have a valid reason, such as a parent’s health, you can request a transfer to your hometown after being posted. The department might approve the transfer under these circumstances.
  • Mutual Transfers: These are possible in your department. For example, if you are posted in City A but want to move to City, B and someone in City B wants to work in City A, you can request a mutual transfer. However, the final decision is up to the department, and you must follow the rules and serve wherever you are posted.
