  • Why did this happen?

This was done because the government had previously held that the GDS will not be held at par with the other central government employees. They were kept outside the union of the Civil services. Of course there was a buzz about this policy recently among the GDS and they decided to appeal to the government to life this system.

What was worse? The Supreme Court had the rule earlier that the GDs will not be civilian employees.
