IAS officer be posted as Deputy Commissioner (D.C.) in his home district ?


Generally, an IAS officer cannot be posted in his home district as the Deputy Commissioner (DC). This is to avoid any conflict of interest or bias. However, there are some exceptions to this rule.

In the state of Haryana, an IAS officer can be posted as DC in his home district if he has declared his home district as such in the official records. This was the case with Sushil Sarwan, a 2012 batch IAS officer of the Haryana cadre, who was recently posted as DC of Panchkula, his home district.

The decision to post an IAS officer in his home district is ultimately up to the state government. The government may consider a number of factors, such as the officer’s seniority, experience, and performance, before making a decision.

Here are some of the reasons why an IAS officer may be posted in his home district:

To provide the officer with an opportunity to serve his home district and contribute to its development.

To give the officer a sense of responsibility and accountability to the people of his home district.

To help the officer build relationships with local stakeholders and institutions.

To facilitate the officer’s work in his home district.

However, there are also some potential risks associated with posting an IAS officer in his home district. These include:

The officer may be biased in favor of his own people or interests.
The officer may be influenced by local political pressures.

The officer may be less likely to take tough decisions that may be unpopular with the people of his home district.

Ultimately, the decision of whether or not to post an IAS officer in his home district is a complex one that must be made on a case-by-case basis.
