AIS staff from Telangana want to return to their home state

Nizamabad: All India Service (AIS) cadre officers, who are natives of Telangana and currently posted in other states, have evinced interest to work in their home state. Some of them have already approached Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao and expressed their willingness to serve their home state. The TS government too needs more AIS officers to implement its schemes and programmes.

Official sources said around 20 IAS officers and 40 IPS officers belonging to Telangana are working in other states.

Most of them were selected to AIS cadre after 1990. Usually, AIS officers can serve in their home state, foreign service and central service for five years during their service. Based on the need and consent of the concerned state, they will get nod for their service.

The TRS government is searching for efficient officers, who are natives of Telangana to induct them in key positions.

For instance, IAS officers S. Narsing Rao (former chairman of Coal India Limited) of Medak district and N. Sridhar of Karimnagar district were provided with key positions like principal secretary in TS chief minister office (CMO) and CMD of Singareni Collieries Company Limited (SCCL) respectively. In view of this, AIS officers in other states are showing willingness to work in the TS, treating the present period advantageous.

According to reliable sources, four IAS officers of the 2011 batch, currently working in different states had approached Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao recently and expressed their willingness to work in their home state. Reportedly, Mr Rao responded in the positive and promised to utilise their services as and when needed.

After completion of AIS officers’ allocation process between the TS and Andhra Pradesh, the state government will take a decision on AIS officers of other states.

Speaking to this newspaper, an IAS officer, working with Maharashtra, said they would be happy to work in their home state.

"People in our state fought for the cause of separate Telangana and achieved it. So our state needs our help to progress and develop," he said. Based on the efforts of the TS government, the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) will take a decision, he added. Compared to residuary Andhra Pradesh, IAS officers belonging to Telangana are less, he said.

Various districts in Telangana state have been facing shortage of AIS officers.

In Nizamabad district, the present collector, D. Ronald Rose, was allotted to the AP cadre and the joint collector has been lying vacant for nearly six months.

There is a need for sub-collectors for Bodhan and Kamareddy revenue divisions and a municipal commissioner for the Nizamabad Municipal Corporation.
