The Union home ministry on Sunday ordered the transfer of four IAS officers – two from Andaman and Nicobar Islands and two from Arunachal Pradesh – to the national capital to help manage the Delhi government’s fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

“@HMOIndia @AmitShah directed immediate transfer of 4 IAS officers - Awanish Kumar & Monica Priyadarshini from A&N, & Gaurav Singh Rajawat & Vikram Singh Mallik from Arunachal Pradesh to New Delhi to assist #GNCTD for management of #COVID19,” the home ministry spokesperson said in a tweet.

“HM also directed attachment to #GNCTD of two Sr. IAS officers - SCL Das and SS Yadav from Centre,” the spokesperson said in another tweet.

The orders came after Shah’s meeting with Union Health minister Harsh Vardhan, Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and officials of the State Disaster Management Authority (SDMA) to take stock of the Covid-19 situation in Delhi that has worsened in recent times.

Shah had also announced a slew of measures to contain the pandemic that has surged in the last few weeks to make Delhi to the third worst-affected state in the country after Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu.

Delhi’s Covid-19 tally now stands at 38,958.
