3 IAS prematurely repatriated in 2 days; Santosh Mathew, Kalpana Awasthi sent back to cadres

THE government on Tuesday prematurely repatriated two IAS officers — A Santosh Mathew of 1985 batch Bihar cadre and Kalpana Awasthi, 1990 batch Uttar Pradesh cadre — to their parent cadres. Only on Monday, the ACC had approved the premature repatriation of Utpal Kumar Singh, 1986 batch Uttarakhand cadre IAS and additional secretary in the department of agriculture, cooperation and farmers’ welfare to his parent cadre. That means, in two days three senior IAS officers were prematurely repatriated to…
their home cadres. 
A Santosh Mathew, 1985 batch Bihar cadre IAS officer and the chairman of NCTE (National Council For Teacher Education), was on Tuesday prematurely repatriated to Bihar. The order however added that the premature repatriation was meant for the officer to “avail benefit of promotion”. Mathew, a PhD from the University of Sussex on development studies, originally belonged to Kerala. He had earlier served as joint secretary in the rural development ministry. He is 56 years old.
Then, Kalpana Awasthi, 1990 batch Uttar Pradesh cadre IAS officer and Director General in National Productivity Council (NCP), was on Tuesday prematurely repatriated to her parent cadre -- Uttar Pradesh, with the imposition of extended cooling-off conditions. She was holding the job at the rank of union joint secretary, Government of India. The NCP, set up in 1958, is meant for promoting productivity across the government, and is a constituent of the Tokyo-based Asian Productivity Organisation (APO), an Inter governmental body. Administratively, NCP comes under the department of industrial policy and promotion (DIPP). 
Ms Awasthi had earlier served as a joint secretary in DIPP. Between 2005-2009, she was a director in the PMO when Manmohan Singh was the Prime Minister. Then, she went for foreign training (2009-2010). 
Ms Awasthi, 53, is a post-graduate in public policy from Duke University (USA).
