163 IAS, 112 IPS, 65 IFoS proposed for newly created state of Telangana

INDIA’s newly created state of Telangana will be manned by 163 IAS, 112 IPS and 65 officers belonging to Indian Forest Service (IFoS), if former Central Vigilance Commissioner (CVC) Pratyush Sinha-headed panel’s recommendations are accepted as it is. In its report, submitted to the department of personnel and training (DoPT) a few days ago, it was also recommended that out of 163 IAS officers…
114 posts need to be kept in direct recruitment category. Also, 78 of IPS and 46 of forest service officials are kept in direct recruitment category.
The state of Telangana will formally be born on June 2, and it will be India’s 29th state.
According to the new proposal, there will be 10 officers in Telangana against every 13 officers in Seemandhra, the residual Andhra Pradesh. In fact, the break-up is proposed according to the 10:13 ratio of districts.

The break-up as of now will be like this:
Residual Andhra Pradesh: 221
Telangana: 163
(Include 1 chief secretary, 1 additional chief secretary, 10 principal secretaries, 27 secretaries)

Residual Andhra Pradesh: 144
Telangana: 112
(Include 1 DGP, 5 ADG, 13 IGP, 11 DIG)

Residual Andhra Pradesh: 82
Telangana: 65
(Include 2 principal chief conservator of forests, 3 additional principal chief conservator of forests, 5 chief conservator of forests.)

Meanwhile, there have been concerns over the shortage of officers in Andhra Pradesh which may impact the prospects of fast-tracking post-bifurcation development work in both sides. Even in residual Andhra Pradesh, there would be new challenges in building a brand new capital city.
The demand for officers will only increase as all major political parties in both sides have promised creation of new districts.


  1. Would those candidates who qualify in CSE 2013 [results to be announced in June 2014] stand a chance of getting allotted Telangana cadre? Or would it happen only next year onwards for DRs?

  2. If those candidate topper under 50 rank selected in cse exam 2013 would go to telangana cadre?
