IAS: Govt mulls 03 yrs mandatory under central deputation?

By IndianMandarins- 10 Jul 2019


Indianmandarins has learned that the NaMo administration may make it mandatory for IAS officers to serve the Central government for three years. But this may not go down well with state governments as each successive batch of IAS officers from 1997 onwards is too short to meet their own requirements of IAS officers.

Further, several IAS officers, especially from North-Eastern states, J&K, and extreme south are often keen to work at the Centre for experience and better career prospects ahead. It is also pointed out that several IAS officers placed in adequately-resourced states like Punjab, Maharashtra show lack of appetite to come to the Centre whereas states like West Bengal often show reluctance to give their officers NoC for central deputation.

Broadly, it may be good news for IAS officers if the government arrives at any definitive decision on their posting at the center for a minimum of three years.
