HYDERABAD: The distribution of State cadre employees originally belonging to the erstwhile Andhra Pradesh,  between Telangana State and the residuary State of AP is almost complete with  employees in 151 departments (out of 153 departments) allocated to one of the States. The Kamalanathan Committee (which has been entrusted with the job of allocating employees to either one the two States) has completed tentative allocation of 42,000 employees and 16,000 employees are yet to be allocated.

According to retired IAS officer L Premchandra Reddy, who is representing AP in the Kamalanathan Committee, except for the Directorate of Health and the Directorate of Medical Education, all other department employees have been assigned to either one of the two states is. “We will soon complete the division of these two departments. There are minor issues which will be resolved soon,” he said.

The reason for the continuing delay in the allocation of employees to either TS or AP is that information is awaited from the Health and Police departments for determining the local status of the employees, sources said.

“The cause of delay is mostly because of medical grounds, spousal transfers and pending cases in courts,” sources said.

The Kamalanathan Committee discussed the issue with the AP Chief Secretary TS Tucker and TS Chief Secretary Rajiv Sharma at the Secretariat on Monday  agreeing to resolve all issues amicably without creating further problems.
