These locations are-

  • Jammu and Kashmir
  • Chhatisgarh
  • Madhya Pradesh
  • Andhra Pradesh
  • Telengana
  • Assam
  • Odisha

For FCI Managers, a tenure at a station can be anywhere between 48 to 60 moths in a station.

  • In case of a sensitive station, this tenure lasts 24 months, 36 months if extended.
  • In case of being posted to the FCI Headquarters the tenure can last up to a maximum of 10 years.
  • If posted to a regional/zonal office, officers can serve for a maximum of 10 years at a stretch or 15 years in entire service.
