"The association has decided to hold its executive committee meeting on May 25, 2015 to discuss all the issues affecting the governance and administration, and ultimately public policies, programmes and public delivery systems," said Sanjay Bhoosreddy, secretary of the body that represents over 4,600 IAS officers.

The controversy over the appointment of IAS officer Shakuntala Gamlin as the acting chief secretary will also be discussed during the meeting, official sources said. The central IAS officers association will be issuing a resolution on the issue after its meeting, they said.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has opposed the responsibility given to Gamlin by Lt Governor Najeeb Jung and accused her of favouring power distribution companies.

There are 4,619 officers of Indian Administrative Service (IAS) working across the country.
Gamlin, a 1984 batch IAS officer of union territories cadre, has been appointed as acting chief secretary due to absence of leave of K K Sharma. Gamlin is Principle Secretary (Power) in Delhi government.
