The Telangana and Andhra Pradesh government accused the Centre, faulting it for the delay in allotment of AIS officers all these days, are now blocking the appointment process themselves by not issuing relieving letters to some officers of their choice.
On December 26, 2014 the Centre appointed Prathyush Sinha committee had issued the list of allottees to both the states after seven months of receiving objections, complaints raised by both the governments and some officers questioning their allotment to a particular state.
The Centre had made it clear that the AP government is yet to relieve 7 IAS officers who are allotted to TS, while the Telangana is yet to relieve 9 IAS officers allotted to AP.
Senior IAS officers Ajay Jain, Siddharth Jain and J.S.V. Prasad are yet to be relieved by AP, while B.P. Acharya, Somesh Kumar, Poonam Malakondaiah, Vikas Raj, K. Amrapali, Ronald Ross, J.S. Ranjan, Harinarayana etc are yet to relieved by Telangana. With this, they continue to serve the existing states. The situation of 44 IAS officers who were relieved by AP government last Sunday is even worse as the TS government is yet to give postings for them.
CM KCR is yet to give his approval to give postings for these officers though the list was finalized by chief secretary Dr Rajiv Sharma and special secretary to CM, Narsing Rao.
On Wednesday they submitted the postings list to CM, but the CM left for Warangal tour on Thursday and is expected to be back on Sunday.
Sources said the CM is not happy with the postings and is keen on making some changes and the postings are expected to be given only after Sankranti.
The Centre sent the list of allottees two weeks ago but both the governments had not issuing relieving orders senior IAS officers are angry on this.
