HYDERABAD : A public interest litigation was filed in the Hyderabad High Court on Tuesday questioning the cadre allocation of All-India Service Officers between Telangana and AP states.

It alleged that the fixation of cadre strength among the governments of Telangana and AP by the department of personnel and training is contrary to the guidelines of Pratyush Sinha committee.

Petitioner Telukuntla Rama Murthy, a practicing chartered accountant of the city, sought the court to suspend the list prepared by the department of personnel and training, New Delhi, through a notification dated August 22, 2014. He also sought to declare the fixation of cadre strength among the two government of Telangana and AP as illegal and arbitrary.

He submitted that the whole exercise was in violation of Article 14 and 21 of the Constitution besides violation of the All India Services Act, 1951 and Cadre policy. Allocation of the AIS officers should be done by the Centre in consultation with the state governments.

As per Section 76 (5) of the AP Reorganization Act, 2014, the allocation of officers has to be in line with the All India Services Act, 1951. However, rules and provisions of the Act have been totally violated.
