UNION home ministry has viewed seriously of Arunachal Pradesh government’s reluctance to relieve two IAS officers from the state even as their order of posing in
Goa came five months ago. According to reports, 1987 batch IAS VK Dev and 2005 batch IAS Pawan K Sain were to be posted in Goa according to orders of Union home ministry, but no officer can take up his or her new assignment unless he is relieved by the state.
The MHA (ministry of home affairs) issued a reminder, and finally sent a note saying that the Centre viewed Arunachal Pradesh government’s reluctance “seriously”. According to rules, the transfers need to be honoured in a time-bound manner. The movement from Arunachal Pradesh to
Goa is a routine affair as both states depend on the same AGMUT cadre IAS officers.
But there is good news on inter-cadre transfers. Temjenwapang Ao, a 2000 batch Orissa cadre IAS has been transferred from Orissa cadre to Nagaland cadre for a period of five years from date of assumption of charge or until further orders. Also, the government has transferred Shashank Misra, a 2007 batch Manipur-Tripura cadre IAS from Manipur-Tripura cadre to Madhya Pradesh cadre on the ground of marriage with Ms Ruchi Shrivastava, a 2006 batch Madhya Pradesh cadre IPS officer.
