Bihar is working with acute shortage of IAS officers. The current strength of officers is just 56 percent of the sanctioned strength. There should be 359 officers in the state but only 202 are posted in here. This information was provided by Bihar home minister in-charge Bijendra Prasad Yadav. He was answering a question from All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) MLA Akhtarul Imam in the Legislative Assembly on Monday.
Mr. Yadav admitted the shortage of officers and said, “ Bihar government has urged the Centre for allotment of 54 officers based on the Civil Services exam, 2020. “The allotment of IAS officers is done by the Central government among states and Union territories on the basis of the Civil Services exams. Besides, appointments on 22 posts of the 2018 selection year, 15 posts of 2019 batch and 16 of 2020 batch under the promotion quota are also under process.” he added.
He also pointed out that there was a shortage of officers across the country but, in Bihar, it was much higher compared to states like Tamil Nadu, West Bengal and even neighbouring Uttar Pradesh.
“Since many officers are this year, the situation will get even worse,” he added.
