With COVID-19 cases going out of hands in Delhi, Union home ministry on June 14 transferred four IAS officers – two from Andaman and Nicobar Islands and two from Arunachal Pradesh – to Delhi to help manage the state government’s fight against the Covid-19 pandemic. Two senior IAS officers S C L Das (IAS:1992:AGMUT) and S.S. Yadav (IAS:1995:AGMUT) too have been attached to the Delhi government. Reportedly, Bhupinder Singh Bhalla (IAS:1990:AGMUT), working as Additional Secretary in Union Commerce Ministry, has also been repatriated to Cadre (Delhi) for some specific purpose. 

Other four young IAS officers included Awanish Kumar (2014:IAS:AGMUT) and Monica Priyadarshini (IAS:2014:AGMUT) from A&N and Gaurav Singh Rajawat (IAS:2014:AGMUT) and Vikram Singh Mallik (IAS: 2012: AGMUT) from Arunachal Pradesh to New Delhi to assist COVID management in the city.
