Platform for vendetta?

dec2014-img-41Fed up with constant complaints from the Chief Ministers of Arunachal Pradesh, Goa, Mizoram and Delhi regarding the transfer and posting of IAS officers within the AGMUT cadre, the Home Ministry had set up a Joint Cadre Authority headed by the Home Secretary. The Chief Secretaries of Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram, Goa and Delhi are the other members. Transfer and postings of IAS officers, excepting the postings of Chief Secretaries and Administrators of UTs, is now decided by the JCA. Till now, only a few meetings have taken place but it appears that the Home Ministry has landed itself in another round of controversies. The Chief Secretaries now find the JCA to be a convenient platform to settle their personal scores against officers whom they don’t like personally. As a consequence, some officers who deserve to be posted in a particular segment of the cadre find themselves landing in faraway places. Sources disclosed that there are some officers who are blue-eyed boys of some Chief Secretaries who never step out of Delhi. It seems any Chief Secretary has a veto power during the proceedings of the JCA and the MHA no longer remains the real cadre-controlling authority. Minister Rajnath Singh has to take a call on doing away with the dominance of the Chief Secretaries in the JCA. Will he do it?
