All India Services

Central Government is planning to amend All India Service (AIS) rules for Jammu and Kashmir and fix total number of IAS, IPS and IFOS officers both in J&K and Ladakh.

Till now official order has not been released but is expected to be soon released for amendments in AIS rules by Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), reported Daily Excelsior. As per reports, amendments includes the powers to grant extension to the Chief Secretary after the age of superannuation initially for a period of three months followed by another three months, will go to the DoPT instead of J&K government.

Further, the DoPT has decided to fix ratio of AIS officers to be posted in J&K and Ladakh. This move is taken to ensure that there is no problem between the two UTs regarding strength of officers till Ladakh gets its separate cadre as presently the officers of All India Services as well as local cadre like JKAS, JKPS and JKFS have also been posted to Ladakh from J&K.

Union Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), Incharge DoPT, Dr Jitendra Singh said the bifurcation of All India Services officers between the Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh will harmonize the services in Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh in line with norms followed in rest of the country. Presently, a number of IAS and IPS officers from erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir cadre, now merged into AGMUT, are posted in Ladakh. Apart from them, officers of Jammu and Kashmir Administrative Services and Jammu and Kashmir Police services besides others are also deputed to Ladakh on deputation basis. Besides, several officers of All India Services from different States and Centre have also been posted on deputation in Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh to overcome shortage of officers in the two Union Territories.
