New Delhi: A bill to bifurcate the joint cadre
of IAS, IPS and Forest Service for the states of Tripura and
Manipur was introduced in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday to meet a long
pending demand.

The North-Eastern Areas (Reorganisation) Amendment Bill,
2011, was introduced by Minister of State for Home M
Ramachandran to amend the original Act of 1971.

One the new law comes into force, Tripura and Manipur will
have a separate cadre of the IAS, a separate cadre of IPS
and a separate cadre of Indian Forest Service, he said.

Presently there is a joint cadre of these services for
the two states.
