Guv reiterates need for separate IAS cadre

ITANAGAR, 18 Aug: Governor BD Mishra on Thursday reiterated the need to have a separate IAS cadre for Arunachal Pradesh, saying that a separate cadre would go a long way in laying a strong foundation of public administration and good governance.

During a meeting with union MoS (Independent Charge) for Personnel, Jitendra Singh, at the Raj Bhavan here, Mishra said that, “Till that is done, the minimum tenure of IAS and IPS officers being posted to Arunachal Pradesh should be minimum of five years.”

The governor further requested the union minister to provide special assistances to the state government “to promote the spirit of science and technology in the state.”

Mishra, who has been emphasising on streamlining the pension issues in the state, shared his appreciation for the state government, saying that it has taken “necessary actions in the matter.”

He commended Chief Minister Pema Khandu and Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein “for the personal intervention in streamlining the pendency of pension cases in state’s pension department.” (Raj Bhavan)
