HYDERABAD: Some more IAS and IPS seeking cadre change have approached the Hyderabad bench of the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) on Tuesday.

Two trainee IAS officers, who are currently working in AP  have filed petitions challenging their allocation to Telangana cadre in the recent final allocation of officers.

The two officers, Srijana Thummala, who is presently working as assistant collector trainee in Krishna district, and Shiva Shankar Lathoti, assistant collector trainee at Guntur, filed their  petitions seeking AP cadre. They challenged the final allocation order of the Centre. They contended that the authorities had erred in recording their domicile status and hence resulted in an erroneous allotment of cadre. While Srijana is a native of Chittoor district, Shiva Shankar belongs to Vizianagaram district. But both of them were shown as natives of Telangana in the cadre division process. While M Shiva Prasad, a DIG rank IPS officer currently working with Hyderabad police commissionerate’s city armed reserve wing as its joint commissioner of police, moved a plea seeking retention in Telangana cadre. He contended that though he was initially allotted to Telangana by the Centre and its Pratyush Sinha committee, the final allocation has sent him to AP. He sought his retention in Telangana cadre by citing personal problems.

The bench comprising B Venkateswara Rao and Ranjana Chowdary is expected to take up these cases on Wednesday.
