    BREAKING: Common Cadre for Arunachal Pradesh Police approved

    Arunachal Pradesh DGP RP Upadhyaya said that the move would be very helpful in streamlining the force

    GUWAHATI: Arunachal Pradesh government on Friday has approved for Common Cadre of Arunachal Pradesh Police with prospective effect.

    A committee headed by IGP Chuku Apa will take steps to implement it.

    The official order said that a committee was constituted to suggest the ways and means to implement this order in the right spirit and with a clear timeline. “Member The committee should initiate necessary steps immediately to implement this order and submit its report by 25-10-2020,” the order said.

    Reacting to the development, Arunachal Pradesh DGP RP Upadhyaya said that the move would be very helpful in streamlining the force. He said, “Major step taken towards reforming the fragmented units in Arunachal Pradesh Police. Government has approved common cadre across units of Arunachal Police with prospective effect. This will ensure smooth HR administration in the force.”

    Last year, following repeated demands from the Arunachal Pradesh government to create a separate cadre of IAS, IPS and IFS officers for the state, the Modi government has decided to revisit the structure of the Arunachal Pradesh-Goa-Mizoram-Union Territory (AGMUT) cadre.

    At present, the state is manned by IAS, IPS and IFS officers from the AGMUT cadre. Since the three states used to be union territories, they were merged into the UT cadre. They have remained there even after statehood.

    Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu also took up the issue with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah last year. Khandu had said that the state’s development had suffered significantly as a result of not having a cadre of its own.

    Following the approval, Arunachal Pradesh MP and union sports minister Kiren Rijiju said it was a very nice initiative to strengthen the Police in Arunachal Pradesh.
