Missing manpower
There is an eerie silence in the Department of Personnel regarding the shortage of IAS and IPS officers. It is estimated that there is a 30 per cent shortfall of such officers. While around 3,000 IAS and IPS officers are needed to smoothen the functioning of the government, today many officers are holding multiple charges to make up for this deficit. There is a clamour for more officers from all the States, but nobody is paying any heed in South Block. There are only 238 IPS officers against the strength of 291 in Madhya Pradesh. The sanctioned cadre strength for Punjab is 221 IAS and 172 IPS officers. As of now, the State has 180 IAS and 142 IPS officers. Haryana has just 163 IAS officers, with 20 on deputation to the Centre, and 102 IPS officers against the sanctioned strength of 205 IAS and 137 IPS officers, respectively. This is taking its toll as it is these young officers, holding charge as District Magistrates and Superintendents of Police, who are the interface between the State Governments and the public.
