Change In IAS Deputation Rules Will Induce Fear Psychosis Among Officers: Kerala CM To PM

On Sunday KERALA CHIEF Minister Mr Pinarayi Vijayan wrote to Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi, advising the Centre to drop the proposed amendments to the IAS (Cadre) Rules, 1954.

Formerly, at least three Opposition-ruled states –Rajasthan, Jharkhand  and West Bengal, – had opposed the proposed amendment, and had written to the Prime Minister, urging him to roll back the decision, they are appealing that the amendment in rules for central deputation of IAS officers will affect states’ administration.

According to Explanation in the IAS officers and central posting, the Chief Minister of Kerala wrote a letter to the Prime Minister, “The proposed amendments in the Deputation Rules of All India Services will definitely induce a fear psychosis and an attitude of hesitancy among All India Service Officers to implement policies of a state government, which are formed by party/parties politically opposed by the ruling party at the Centre.”

The present deputation rules are greatly loaded in support of the Centre and taking in further stringency would further weaken the very root of co-operative federalism. The government of Kerala is of the belief that the proposed changes be dropped, Vijayan wrote.

According to his view and what he said in the central set-up, the state governments are on par with the Centre as both of them are voted by the people, while the division of authority in the Constitution gives the Union jurisdiction over a variety of subjects.

“We need to recognise that in a vibrant democratic and federal policy, states and the Centre can be ruled by political formations with different ideologies and political views. But these governments function within the framework of the Constitution,” Vijayan wrote in his letter.
