Visakhapatnam: Andhra Pradesh has completed the allocation of posts in the district and divisional level offices for the newly formed districts. It is estimated that around 10,000 employees will be transferred to the new districts and divisions, along with provisional allocations. However, the transfers are said to be temporary until the President's orders are issued on the new system.

Operations in the new districts will begin from 2 April, on Ugadi.

The government is preparing the details of the employees and officers who will be transferred to the new districts, along with employee details, identification number, cadre, status, current working area, and provisionally-assigned district name.

In the newly-formed districts, the posts will be divided based on the population in each district. A form has been given to all employees to take their options. In case of more options given to a single post, the juniors will be transferred. Further, seniority and promotions of employees will have no effect, even after being transferred to the new districts, and they will be provided a transfer traveling allowance.


Sources said the final notification for the formation of new districts and divisions will be issued on 31 March. Following this, the departments concerned will immediately issue orders to transfer employees.

In the course of transfers, joint collectors (Aasaa-welfare) in the current districts will be appointed as district revenue officers (DROs) in case of transfer to the newly-formed districts. Similarly, the district joint director of agriculture or deputy director will be treated as the district agriculture officer. The women and child welfare project director in the present district will be considered the district women and child welfare officer assigned to the new district.
