Rule X, section 2, is hereby amended by adding a third proviso after the word "proposed," as follows:

And provided further, That no transfer shall be made of a person to a position if in said position there is not required, in the judgment of the Commission, the performance of the same class of work or the practice of the same mechanical trade performed or practiced in the position from which transfer is proposed.


As amended the section will read:

  1. A person who has received absolute appointment may be transferred, without examination, from any department, office, or branch of the service, upon requisition and consent of the proper officers, and the certificate of the Commission, but no person shall be so transferred who has not actually served for six months in the office in which he became classified and in some position therein which at the time of the request for his transfer is within the competitive classified service: Provided, That no transfer shall be made of a person to a position within the same department or office and the same branch of the service, or to a position in another department, office, or branch of the service, if for original entrance to such position said person is barred by the age limitations prescribed therefor, or by the provisions regulating apportionment, but the provisions in relation to apportionment may be waived upon the certificate of the appointing officer that the transfer is required in the interests of good administration, setting forth in detail the reasons therefor, which certificate shall be subject to the approval of the Commission: And provided further, That transfers shall not be made without examination, provided by the Commission, to a position for original entrance to which, in the judgment of the Commission, there is required by these rules an examination involving essential tests different from or higher than those involved in the examination required for original entrance to the position from which transfer is proposed: And provided further, That no transfer shall be made of a person to a position if in said position there is not required, in the judgment of the Commission, the performance of the same class of work or the practice of the same mechanical trade performed or practiced in the position from which transfer is proposed; but a person employed in any grade shall not, because of such employment, be barred from the open competitive examination provided for original entrance to any other grade.
