Manipur, Tripura get separate IAS, IPS cadres
Agartala: With the creation of separate Manipur and Tripura cadres for All India Cadre Services (AICS) officers, the administration in both states would be considerably smoothened, an official said here Thursday.
The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) under the union Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions issued a notification earlier this week creating separate Manipur and Tripura cadres for IAS (Indian Administrative Service), IPS (Indian Police Service) and IFS (Indian Forest Service) officers.
"To assign posting, provide promotion, transfer on central deputation or within cadre, it was a cumbersome administrative process to deal with the AICS officers," a senior Tripura government official told IANS.
He said: "With the separation of cadre of AICS officers, it would be very smooth for both Tripura and Manipur to deal with the IAS, IPS and IFS officers."
Since creation of full-fledged states in January 1972, both Tripura and Manipur were treated as a joint cadre for AICS officers.
The DoPT in its notification has made public a draft list of allocation of separate AICS cadres of Manipur and Tripura.
According to the draft allocation list, 91 IAS, 60 IPS, 44 IFS officers (including promotees) are to be allocated to Manipur and 73 IAS, 50 IPS and 57 IFS officers (including promotees) are to be allocated to Tripura.
The move comes following a series of demands for years by the two northeastern states and a recommendation by an official level committee headed by secretary of the DoPT.
The Committee, which was formed after the passing of the North Eastern Areas (Reorganisation) Amendment Act, 2012, had as members chief secretaries of Manipur, Tripura, Special Secretary (Internal Security) of the home ministry, Inspector General (Forest-cum-Special Secretary) under the environment and forest ministry and joint secretary in the DoPT.
The DoPT notification asked the people concerned to bring to the notice of the department by August 25 about factual error in the distribution or any representation of AICS officers.
