HYDERABAD: The allocation of All-India Services (AIS) officers to Telangana and Andhra Pradesh will be completed within 10-15 days. The flip of the coin went in favour of Telangana on Saturday, which means the allocation starts with the new State.

According to sources, all promotee AIS officers will be allocated based on their domicile. No option will be given to them. If the promotee officers are found to be in excess numbers, such staff will be allocated to the State facing shortage of officers by roster system. Regular recruitee insider officers will also be allocated by domicile, but subject to the roster system. The regular recruitee outsider officers will be allocated as per option, subject to the ratio between the two States.

In other words, the Pratyush Sinha Committee is following both option and domicile criteria. The panel has already sought the options of AIS officers in a sealed cover, which have not been opened yet. Speculation was rife that Telangana Chief Secretary and DGP could be allotted to Andhra Pradesh but it is more than likely that political leadership will intervene and ensure that officers occupying top positions are retained as per norms. 

The top officers of Telangana may be changed but informed sources suggested that techincally they would go by the guidelines and roster system. The Sinha committee is meeting on August 22 again and it is likely the guidelines will be issued then.

The guidelines of Pratyush Sinha Committee and the list of AIS officers allocated to Andhra Pradesh and Telangana will be uploaded on the website within 10-15 days.

The Union Home Ministry has made it clear that the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana cannot initiate any process to appoint IPS officers as DGP (Head of Police Force) at this point of time because the process of allocating officers on a permanent basis to the two states is not over yet. The Centre conveyed this to the CAT which was hearing two petitions by senior IPS officers SA Huda and TP Das challenging the appointment of JV Ramudu and Anurag Sharma as DGPs of AP and Telangana respectively.
