The Mamata Banerjee government has released only seven IAS officers for Central deputation though around 82 bureaucrats belonging to Bengal cadre are supposed to be sent to the Union Government for taking up new assignments there.

As per the "Central Deputation Reserve" agreed between the Centre and Bengal government, the state is required to provide 82 IAS officers from its cadre for the Central deputation service but only about 8.5% of the required pool has been released so far by the state secretariat Nabanna.

Against this backdrop, the Chief Minister wrote yet another letter to the Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi on 20 January requesting him to drop the move to amend the IAS (Cadre) Rules, 1954 after the Government of India (GoI) decided to insert a strong provision in the rules allowing New Delhi to take out any officer immediately bypassing reservations from states, which are not adhering to the Cadre Management Rules giving provisions of sharing of officers between the Centre and the states.

The seven officers who are already on Central deputation from West Bengal are Tallen Kumar, Indevar Pandey, S Kishore,Chandan Sinha, Vivek Bharadwaj, Puneet Yadav and Manmeet Nanda. A retired IAS officer felt that the Bengal government has completely failed to handle cadre management of IAS officers maintaining rationality and impartiality.
