Tentative Lists of Cadre Posts by May 18 Hyderabad: A majority of non-Telugu IAS, IPS and IFS officers is keen on opting for Telangana state. It is going to be a serious issue to be addressed in the interest of both the States, said a senior bureaucrat. Given an option, none of the senior bureaucrats, especially those from outside the State, will prefer to go to Seemandhra, wherein their respective departments have to start from the scratch. Their families, too, are said to be reluctant to leave Hyderabad with which they have developed a great deal of affinity.

If the options of the officers are considered rank-wise for deciding the cadre, almost all the senior officials from outside the State would prefer to remain with Telangana state and it would turn out to be an aberration to be addressed in initiating special measures well before the Appointed Day. In order to avoid such a mess-up, the Department of Personnel and Training (DOP&T) is thinking of moving batch-wise while considering the options of individual officers. By all means, the allocation of the officers would be made by next week and the tentative list would be published by May 18. The officers would be joining the new States by May 25, unless they have any grievances or objections to be taken up with the DOP&T for review or reconsideration of the same.

As the things stand today, there is a clear division between the IAS, the IPS and the IFS officers hailing from the two regions that are going to take the shape of two States on June 2. As notified by the DOP&T on Thursday, the bifurcation of IAS cadre posts between the residuary Andhra Pradesh and Telangana was made in the 13: 10 ratio of the existing number of senior duty posts. The division was based completely on the recommendation of the advisory committee that studied the division of employees under the chairmanship of Prathush Sinha.

Andhra Pradesh will have the total authorised strength 211 IAS cadre posts as against 163 in Telangana State. Andhra Pradesh will have 115 senior duty posts including 66 senior-scale IAS officers. Telangana will have 89 senior duty posts and it includes 50 senior scale IAS officers. There will be a Chief Secretary each for the two States. AP will have two additional Chief Secretaries and 12 Principal Secretaries, whereas there will be one additional Chief Secretary and 10 Principal Secretaries in Telangana. The DOP&T made it clear in its notification that any comments or representations on the determination of strength and composition of cadres of two successor States would be considered only if they reach it latest by 6 pm on May 11.

So far as the division of the IPS officers is concerned, AP will have an authorised strength of 144 officers as against 112 in Telangana. As many as 79 senior duty posts (including 4 SP-level officers) will go to Seemandhra, and 61 senior duty posts ( including 31 SP-level officers) will remain with Telangana. Similarly, AP will have an authorised strength of 82 IFS officers as against 65 in Telangana.
