MP calls for separate cadre of All India Services for

Arunachal Pradesh MP Ninong Ering has requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a separate cadre of All India Services of IAS and IPS officers for the state.

Chief Minister Pema Khandu had also urged the prime minister for a separate cadre for the state during his visit to the state on February 15 last.

In a letter to the prime minister yesterday, Ering stated that a separate cadre in respect of Arunachal Pradesh was necessary for efficient governance.

The Congress MP from Arunachal East Parliamentary constituency in his letter said, the joint cadre serving Arunachal Pradesh, Goa, Mizoram and Union Territories (AGMUT) was creating impediments towards more efficient governance which must be rectified by the government.

Ering pointed out that officers who spend a good amount of time in the state and understand it better in terms of administration are transferred to other locations of AGMUT cadre, creating gaps in administrative understanding.

"These officers having substantial experience are sometimes involved in very critical projects and they have to just leave the state in case of transfers without adding anything concrete which they could have done, had they been in same state," he said.

Even smaller states like Manipur, Tripura, Sikkim have their own separate cadre and have benefitted greatly by the dedicated service of All India Service officers in their own cadres, he said.
