No Manipulation In UPSC, Do Not Disrupt Independent Institutions

- The Centre is considering a major change in the allocation of services to successful candidates of the civil services examination. The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) has asked the department concerned to examine if the services can be allocated after the completion of the foundation course. Now, if this will actually take place then it will be the most draconian move the center in the recent times. So far, the allocation for the IAS, IPS or IFS has been done according to the final merit list but the recent proposal by the government will ruin the fate of thousands of aspirants cracking the toughest competitive examination in this country.
Let us suppose an aspirant secured rank one. He or she wants IAS but the cadre allocation will be done after the completion of 100 days foundational training at Lal Bahadur Shastri Mussorie training center. Is this justified? What is the benefit of working hard day and night and studying almost every impossible thing in and out of the syllabus, when the cadre is going to be allocated after a 100 days training or foundational programme? This is a very serious and grave concern. Millions of students will be demotivated prior to this new rule by the government. The government wants it to be done within a week. It means that they are encouraged to implement it from this year only. Why so hurry? Why cannot the government ask the students for their opinion?
What is the fuss
It is an attempt to pool in like-minded people in the Civil Services. Once the establishment gets to know about your ideologies and political leaning or affiliation, they will allocate cadre accordingly. This is a clear manifestation of the government agendas to control the bureaucracy at this level. We cannot allow any political party to play with our future and decide arbitrarily on such an important issue. There will be very negative implications of this proposal, if accepted, by the concerned ministry and department.
We do not want our independent institutions like UPSC to be a puppet as the CBI. Through this petition, I urge the PMO to reconsider its decision or otherwise there will be a widespread protest throughout the country before the 2019 general elections. Let no saffronize a pioneer institution like the UPSC. Bye Bye UPSC
