Didi opposes move to tweak deputation rules of IAS officers | India News – Times of India

KOLKATA: West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee has written to PM Narendra Modi opposing the proposed amendments to Rule 6 of IAS (Cadre) Rules, 1954, which would allow the Centre to post any IAS officer working in the state for central deputation.
The proposed amendment asks the states to nominate a pre-decided number of IAS officers for central deputation reserve and allows the Centre to post these officers, even overriding state objections.
She wrote: “By insisting on officers to be made available for deputation through proposed amendment, not only will the administration of states be affected but also it would become impossible to assess and plan the administration of a state by engaging such officers who form part of Central Deputation Reserve, fraught with the uncertainty of their sudden deputation by the Centre… The proposed amendment of cadre rules will legalise such actions which are unwarranted.”
The letter, written by the CM on January 13, was accessed by TOI on Tuesday.
