Rajasthan: Bureaucrats say, sidelined Pilot focuses more on future

By IndianMandarins 11 Dec 2019

Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot appears to have sidelined his Deputy CM Sachin Pilot. This is in sync with Pilot's clean image that instead of taking confrontationist approach, he focuses on nurturing his political future. He refrained himself from opening any front against Gehlot as part of the strategy, this is what bureaucracy of Rajasthan talks about Pilot.

When Congress took over mantle in the state Pilot lost the battle of CMship to Gehlot but appointed as Deputy CM. Old guards had initially thought that gradually Rajasthan will be Pilot-centric and the grand old man Gehlot would gradually disappear from the scene.

Initially Pilot had a fair say in the administrative matters of the state but contrary to the perception, Gehlot has cut him to size and today he is just like a favoured minister. Taking cue from the power equation, MLAs too distanced themselves from Pilot.

Insiders say that Gehlot is a seasoned politician to settle such issues but Pilot does not appear to be a looser like Navjot Sidhu in Punjab. Pilot knows well that present moments are for Gehlot but future lies with him.

Insiders in state bureaucracy say that Pilot has started considering himself under probation period and has been nurturing his skills and acceptability to take up the top job in Rajasthan in the future.

Chief Secretary post becomes a puzzle in Himachal

By IndianMandarins 10 Dec 2019

Rumours agog that Himachal Pradesh Government has quietly moved a proposal for granting six-months extension to the outgoing Chief Secretary Dr Srikant Baldi (IAS:1985:HP) who is retiring this month end. On the other hand, Anil Khachi (IAS:1986:HP) recently repatriated prematurely to cadre state after having a very short stint as Union Secretary, DIPAM.

The state bureaucracy considers Khachi as Dr Baldi’s natural successor but Chief Minister is reported to be wary of picking Khachi, a blunt administrator, as next Chief Secretary. Further, the Chief Minister reportedly interacted with Brij Kumar Agarwal (IAS:1985:HP) about his opinion of making a come-back to the cadre state which he declined politely. However, the Chief Minister may not chose to invite a spotlight to supersede Khachi. Sources say; that is why CM might be trying to retain Baldi for as long as he can.

CAT: Appointment to Judicial Member posts hangs in balance

By IndianMandarins 10 Dec 2019

People in power corridors are keenly observing the developments pertaining to the long due appointments of Judicial Members in the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT).

If some well-placed sources are to be believed, as against proposed nine posts of Judicial Member Judicial, appointment of only four were cleared on 24 October 2019. Of four, Justice Vijay Lakshmi (former Judge of Allahabad HC) joined CAT but rest three opted not to join in the wake of Kudrat Sandhu Case which had reduced the term of appointment from 5 yrs to 3 yrs and curbed LTC and leave benefits considerably including others. Though decisions on Kudrat Sandhu Case was quashed later but decision on further appointments hanged in balance. In the meanwhile number of vacancies of Member Judicial have reached to 13 at present.

If some top sources are to be believed the establishment might be unwilling for a 5 years term for CAT Members. It may be substantiated by the fact that the Govt on October 15 cleared the appointment of six members in NCLAT for a term of 3 years whereas posts when advertised clearly stated a 5 years term.

Disappointing news for IPS officers: Centre set to cut posts under CDR

By IndianMandarins 09 Dec 2019

If some well-placed sources are to be believed the news appears discouraging for IPS officers. Reportedly, the NaMo administration is set to reduce the sanctioned posts for IPS officers under the Central Deputation Reserve.  

The sanctioned posts for IPS officers under Central Deputation Reserve (CDR) is 1075 but presently only 428 IPS officers are working in the Govt of India under Central Deputation i.e. 39.81 per cent of CDR posts.

The Union Home Ministry analysed the data and made observations that most of the State Governments have been exhibiting less appetite for sparing their IPS officers to serve on Central Deputation which is otherwise beneficial for State Govts vis-à-vis IPS officers.

Since the large number of posts under CDR remain unutilised the NaMo administration is undertaking an exercise to reduce the existing CDR quota from 40 percent of Senior Duty Posts i.e. 1075 posts to about 500 posts.  Reportedly, Ministry of Home Affairs has wrote to the State Govts and UTs to send their opinion, latest by December 15, on the proposed move to cut CDR posts.
