Pari Bishnoi hails from Rajasthan’s Bikaner district and is currently posted as a Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM) in Gangtok, Sikkim. She secured the 30th rank in the 2019 UPSC examination and belongs to the 2020 batch of IAS officers. Her request for deputation to Haryana stemmed from her desire to care for her ailing father.
The central government sought Haryana’s NOC for Pari’s deputation, which was granted by the state government on Thursday. The final order for her deputation to Haryana will be issued by the central government.
Bhavya Bishnoi’s Political Journey
Bhavya Bishnoi, aged 30, is the grandson of Haryana’s former Chief Minister, Bhajan Lal, and the son of BJP leader Kuldeep Bishnoi. He won the MLA seat from Adampur on a BJP ticket during a bypoll held last year. Previously, Bhavya had contested the 2019 Lok Sabha polls from Hisar on a Congress ticket but was defeated by BJP’s Brijendra Singh.
Insights from an Advocate
Hemant Kumar, an advocate at the Punjab and Haryana High Court who closely observes administrative developments in the state, highlighted aspects of the deputation process. He noted that inter-state deputation typically spans three years but mentioned instances of bureaucrats receiving extensions. During the Hooda regime, for instance, a Karnataka cadre IAS officer, who was a relative of a senior Congress leader, received a remarkable seven-year extension.
Kumar also pointed out that, in cases involving couples, bureaucrats often seek a change in their cadre to align with the posting of their spouse.
This development underscores the significance of administrative decisions, especially concerning inter-state deputations and their profound impact on individuals’ careers and personal lives.
