Arunachal seeks new officer cadre

Syllabus subtopic: Important aspects of governance, transparency and accountability, e-governance- applications, models, successes, limitations, and potential; citizens charters, transparency & accountability and institutional and other measures.

News: Arunachal Pradesh, India’s eastern­most State, wants a separate cadre of bureaucrats because of its cultural and topographical diversity.

Prelims and Mains focus: Tribes of Arunachal Pradesh, Problems faced by the region in governance, challenges and ways to address them

Context:

  • Officials and police officers posted in the State belong to the Arunachal Pradesh­Goa­Mizoram and Union Territory (AGMUT) cadre, and are deputed for a minimum of two years and above.
  • The State has 27 major tribes and more than 100 sub­tribes.
  • “Sometimes it becomes difficult to understand the pulse of the people, even for an Arunachali like me. Think of bureaucrats of the AGMUT cadre who come here for two years...,” Mr. Khandu, Arunachal Pradesh CM said.

Frequent transfers affecting governance

  • Arunachal Pradesh became a State in 1987, and since then the dynamics had changed. There is no institutional memory as officers are transferred frequently.
  • This affects governance, and benefits do not reach people. Political parties enter office and go out, but a dedicated bureaucracy is essential for the State’s welfare.
  • According to the Union Home Ministry, the cadre controlling authority of the AGMUT, the sanctioned strength of IAS officers to be posted in Arunachal Pradesh is 42 and of IPS officers is 35.
