Chandigarh:

At a time when Punjab chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh is opposing the ministry of home affairs’ move to include Chandigarh DSPs in DANIPS cadre and stressing to maintain the 60:40 ratio of officers from Punjab and Haryana in the UT administration, the situation on the ground is completely different. Unavailability of officers from the two states is affecting the functioning of the UT administration.


Around half a dozen senior IAS and IPS officers of Punjab and Haryana cadre had joined the city after a delay of six to 14 months, forcing the administration to overburden the existing officers by giving them multiple charges.

Records revealed that UT SSP, a Punjab cadre IPS officer, joined the city after a delay of eight months since former SSP Sukhchain Singh Gill was relieved.

Two posts, municipal commissioner and Citco managing director (MD), are still lying vacant for over six months. Both the officers have to come from Punjab cadre IAS officers. Finance secretary A K Sinha from Punjab cadre joined almost eight months late after previous incumbent Sarvjit Singh was relieved.

The situation is the same with the Haryana government. SSP (traffic and security) Shashank Anand, a Haryana cadre IPS officer, joined the administration after a gap of almost 14 months since the previous incumbent, Manish Chaudhary, was relieved.

“We constantly get panels of officers very late. Some of the times anomalies too are found in the panels, which further delay the process. If the Punjab and Haryana governments send the panel of the officers on time, we can process the same early to secure the Central government’s nod,” sources in the administration said
