Several JKAS officers to be inducted into AGMUT cadre soon

It will be after a gap of nearly 10 years that at least 40 Jammu and Kashmir Administrative Services (JKAS) officers will be inducted into Indian Administrative Services (IAS) in coming months.

These officers will be given AGMUT (Arunachal Pradesh, Goa, Mizoram Union Territories) cadre as the Union Home Ministry had recently merged erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir cadre into AGMUT.

The General Administrative Department (GAD) has initiated the process of induction that will include some of the retired KAS officers.

 As per the process, the General Administration Department will identify vacancies and years of allotment of IAS to the JKAS officers. This process has been initiated, they said.

“Tentative vacancies worked out by the Government revealed that about 35-40 JKAS officers are likely to be inducted into the IAS and will be allotted different years of induction,’’ sources said, adding that 1999 batch of JKAS is likely to be the major beneficiary of inductions. However, at the same time, decks will be cleared for inductions of 2000 and 2001 batch of JKAS officers.
