Quota For Local Officers in IAS, IPS To Be Decreased By 17 Percent

The Centre has determined to decrease the quota from current 50 per cent to 33 per cent for native officers from state providers to IAS, IPS and IFoS within the union territories of Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh, officers mentioned on Tuesday.

The Personnel Ministry has finalised all modalities on this regard and an official order is predicted quickly, they mentioned.

The transfer adopted the nullification of Article 370 within the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir in August final 12 months, the officers mentioned.

Earlier norms allowed the previous state to get pleasure from 50:50 formulation for the three all India providers — the Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Police Service (IPS) and Indian Forest Service (IFoS).

This implies, 50 per cent of the overall posts in these providers had been to be manned by these chosen by way of direct recruitment mode, on the idea of civil providers examination carried out by the Union Public Service Fee (UPSC), and the remaining 50 per cent posts had been to be stuffed by way of the promotion of native officers belonging to state providers to IAS, IPS and the IFoS, the officers mentioned.

After Jammu and Kashmir state was reorganised into two union territories — Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh — it has misplaced its particular quota provision, they mentioned. “Now, the pan-India rule of 67:33 (i.e. 67 per cent posts to be manned by directly recruited officers and the rest will be for those from the state services) will apply to both the union territories,” an official defined, including that the Personnel Ministry will quickly come out with an order on this regard.

In accordance with the Jammu and Kashmir reorganisation Act, 2019, the officers chosen by way of the civil providers examination will now get the AGMUT or Arunachal Pradesh-Goa-Mizoram-Union Territory cadre as a substitute of Jammu and Kashmir. Officers of the IAS, IPS and IFoS are allotted cadre that might both be a state/group of states or union territories.
