The Cen­tre has put off im­ple­ment­ing the pro­posal link­ing cadre al­lo­ca­tion of new In­dian Ad­min­is­tra­tive Ser­vice of­fi­cers with their per­for­mance in the foun­da­tion course. The depart­ment of per­son­nel and train­ing ( DoPT) has, there­fore, an­nounced the ser­vice al­lo­ca­tion of the 848 can­di­dates who cleared the Civil Ser­vice Exam ( CSE) last year as per ex­ist­ing cri­te­ria.

Sources say that the rea­son is lack of con­sen­sus be­tween the cadre- con­trol­ling min­istries of var­i­ous ser­vices on the is­sue. The pro­posal to tweak ser­vice al­lo­ca­tion norms had also run into po­lit­i­cal trou­ble.

How­ever, it is not yet known whether the gov­ern­ment has de­cided to shelve the pro­posal, made by the D. S. Kothari Com­mis­sion back in the 1970s. As of now, the de­ci­sion not to im­ple­ment the pro­posal is only for the cur­rent year. This should give the gov­ern­ment time to in­volve the Union Pub­lic Ser­vice Com­mis­sion in the process since the pro­posal re­quires over­haul­ing the en­tire CSE pro­ce­dures.
