HYDERABAD: The State Advisory Committee, constituted by the central government, has decided to expedite the redressing of various contentious issues between AP and Telangana.

The chief secretaries of both states have decided to expedite the exchange of equal number of state cadre employees (Gazetted, Non-Gazetted  and Last Grade employees), who are native to AP and opted for that state but were allotted to TS, and vice-versa. They have decided to expedite the division of labour cess between the sibling states.

It was also decided to expedite the settlement of power dues between the two states and the division of employees of Lokayukta on the same lines as AP Administrative Tribunal. The State Advisory Committee, constituted to make recommendations on allocation of state cadre employees between the two states, met  here on Friday. Ajay Mittal, secretary in the department of personnel and training of the Union government, chaired the meeting.  

TS chief secretary SP Singh, AP chief secretary Dinesh Kumar, states’ reorganisation department secretaries Ramakrishna Rao (TS) and L Premachandra Reddy (AP), and other officials attended the meeting. The meeting decided to constitute a sub-committee of the State Advisory Committee headed by Kimbuong Kipgen, joint secretary of DoPT, to take all the decisions required to allocate deputy collectors, DySPs and excise superintendents between the two states. The meeting finalised the bifurcation of deputy collectors.   

“After the final allocation of the staff is done by the Centre, if there are any requests from employees for their accommodation in the state other than the one they were allotted to, such cases may be disposed of by both the state governments after mutual consultation,” Mittal said. Earlier in the day, the two chief secretaries discussed pending issues. They decided to extend the time limit for application and disposal of inter-state/mutual transfers applications of employees till June next year.

It was also decided to expedite the division of institutions listed in Schedule-X and which do not have land and buildings. Both the chief secretaries have decided to speed up the division of properties of AP Bhavan in New Delhi. They decided to expedite the approval of recommendations of the expert committee headed by Sheela Bhide on division of assets, liabilities and employees of institutions listed under Schedule-IX of AP Reorganisation Act, 2014.
