NEW DELHI: Long pending request of Goa of creating a separate cadre will likely to be heard in next meeting of Joint Cadre Authority (JCA), scheduled in November.

JCA will discuss ‘creation of separate cadres to Arunachal Pradesh, Goa and Mizoram’ on November 6 as it is their top agenda.

In September, Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu also requested Home Minister Rajnath Singh of creating separate Indian Administrative Services (IAS), Indian Police Services(IPS), Indian Foreign Services (IFS) cadre for the state. Goa had sent a proposal of creating separate cadre in 2011 to MHA but due to shortage of officers in the state, MHA didn’t take any call.

Home secretary Rajiv Guaba will chair the meeting after which almost half a dozen of transfers of IPS and IAS officers are expected. A meeting notice, accessed by New Indian Express has been issued on Tuesday asking members of the committee to attend the meeting.

“If these states will get separate cadres, then no more AGMUT cadre officers who serves in Union territories will be transferred to Arunachal Pradesh, Goa and Mizoram. This will help the officer to stay in the union territories for longer period.” a senior government official explained. Currently in these states officers spend only three years.

“Officers of the AGMUT cadre serve for short tenures of 2-3 years depending on the officer's seniority. Lack of institutional memory, adhocism in policies and programs and the resultant latent chaos are some of the adverse effects," Mr Khandu had told media after meeting Rajnath Singh in September requesting him to create separate cadre. JCA is responsible for cadre related issues, transfers, posting of IPS and IAS officers headed by Home secretary of India.
