Arunachal member of Parliament Ninong Ering today met Home Minister Rajnath Singh and submitted the detailed research report on "Separate Cadre of All India Services" in Arunachal Pradesh and requested the Home Minister to take up the case on urgent basis.
The research report stated that the Arunachal Pradesh-Goa-Mizoram-Union Territories (AGMUT) cadre has outlived its purpose and Arunachal Pradesh – with its diverse culture and large area – is an outlier in AGMUT. The repost also stated that having a separate state cadre is the best possible way forward for the state, as it will give the state autonomy in Services related affairs.
The following suggestions were also made with the aim of mitigating hurdles in transitioning Arunachal Pradesh to an autonomous status: additional recruitment of AIS cadre for Arunachal Pradesh, capacity building of cadre through training at institutions and finally, additional incentives for serving officers.
Expressing concern that these new provisions might hinder the state’s development for a period of time, the report also stated that these efforts would eventually help the state get mainstreamed into the Indian economy.
