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
(Include 1 chief secretary, 1 additional chief secretary, 10 principal secretaries, 27 secretaries)
Residual Andhra Pradesh: 144
(Include 1 DGP, 5 ADG, 13 IGP, 11 DIG)
Residual Andhra Pradesh: 82
(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.
