Head of office/head of department are the designated posts and they vary from office to office. I have seen in some offices an officer of under secretary has been designated as head of office

The List of Head of Departments is available in Schedule 1 of DFPR, 1978.

In addition to above, any officer of the level of Deputy Secretary or above and who is the Head of an identifiable organisation can be nominated as the Head of the Department by the Ministry/Department concerned. (Refer Rule 3(f) of DFPR, 1978)
