New Delhi: Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Science & Technology; Minister of State (Independent Charge) Earth Sciences; MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr. Jitendra Singh today said, the Centre is examining the comments received from the States/UTs on a proposal to amend Rule 6(1) of IAS (Cadre) Rules, 1954, relating to the Central Deputation of IAS officers.

In a written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha, Dr Jitendra Singh said, the Indian Administrative Service (Fixation of Cadre Strength) Regulations, 1955 provide for a Central Deputation Reserve not exceeding 40% of the Senior Duty Posts of a cadre/joint cadre. However, State Governments have not been sponsoring adequate number of officers for central deputation to meet the requirements of the Government of India.

Therefore, in order to address the above problem, comments have been sought from States/UTs, in terms of the provisions contained in Section 3 of All India Services Act, 1951on a proposal to amend Rule 6(1) of IAS (Cadre) Rules, 1954, relating to the Central Deputation of IAS officers.
