  • In the into, mention the concerns raised by certain states to the proposed changes.
  • In the body, mention the reasons such as shortage of officers on Central deputation such as vacancies, the reluctance of officers to go on central deputation, better service conditions in the states etc. In the way forward suggest, centre should respect the view of the state about deputation of officer, centre needs to improve the service condition, need for the states to look at the matter in a non-adversarial manner etc.
  • Conclude by mentioning the need to address the concerns of the state while addressing the issue of shortage and sharing the shortage equitably between the centre and the states.
