HYDERABAD: The department of personnel and training (DoPT) of the Union government started looking into the pending allocation of 1,302 state cadre employees between AP and Telangana, and allocated nine employees on Monday — five to AP, four to TS.After the term of the Kamalanathan Committee expired in March, the Centre asked the DoPT secretary with resolving the allocation of remaining employees.DoPT secretary Ajay Mittal, who took charge recently, held a meeting for the first time with the chief secretaries of AP and TS on Monday. 

Though the Kamalanathan Committee allocated 55,870 state cadre employees without any hitch, some employees, citing seniority and other reasons, moved various courts and tribunals. With the end of the tenure of the Committee, the DoPT asked the secretary to resolve the row over the allocation of 1,302 employees.Of them, 683 are deputy superintendents of police, additional SPs or non-cadre SPs, 536 are deputy collectors and special-grade deputy collectors, 62 excise superintendents, nine employees from medical education, four from the directorate of health, six from SPF  and two from the labour department. 

At Monday’s meeting, the DoPT secretary took stock of the situation and directed AP’s chief secretary to finalise the seniority of deputy collectors and employees of the police department by the end of September. When the employees approached it, the court stayed the bifurcation process and directed the government to fix the seniority first. “As per the court orders, the seniority of the employees will be finalised by the end of September,” an official, who attended the meeting, told Express.

Meanwhile, on taking the native employees from TS, AP CM N Chandrababu Naidu has approved the guidelines. The AP and TS governments have resolved to take their respective state-origin employees on the basis of “equal numbers”. AP has approved the guidelines and is ready to take AP-origin employees working in TS.
