Abolition of J&K Cadre: A blow to non local bureaucracy

Appeasement of the ruling political class in Delhi after the downgrading of Jammu & Kashmir from a state to a union territory and withdrawal of special status to it under article 370 and article 35-A has finally shattered the dreams of those non local All India Service Officers who wanted to execute their own plans of permanent settlement for their future generations in Jammu and Kashmir. They won’t have even imagined that the downgrading of Jammu & Kashmir from a state to a union territory would also end their days of stay and settlement in Jammu & Kashmir but finally it happened with the abolition of Jammu & Kashmir cadre. The people of Jammu & Kashmir won’t forget it that just few months back some non local IAS officers were desperate to apply for the domicile certificates and get them at the earliest to have all those privileges which permanent residents of Jammu & Kashmir have. By all standards of understandabilities the non local bureaucrats have finally got what the Jammu & Kashmir residents wanted them to have in the end. J&K cadre to non local bureaucrats used to be a license to them for lifetime stay and settlement in Jammu & Kashmir as they used to go on central deputation for only four  years and return to the erstwhile J&K state for permanent stay till retirement and even beyond that but with of transfer from J&K cadre to AGMUT for All India Services the non locals don’t have any license for permanent stay or settlement in Jammu & Kashmir as they to move now from state to state and UT to UT to ultimately have no permanent base. Till last year the AGMUT cadre was applicable to only new entrants of All India Services but now the IAS officers of erstwhile J&K cadre who continue to be in Jammu & Kashmir Government for last several decades can be transferred as officers of AGMUT cadre to states like Goa, Arunachal, Manipur and any other union territory.

Forget about the settlement in Jammu & Kashmir from now onwards both the incumbent and incoming non local All India Service officers won’t have any right to stay or settle permanently in Jammu & Kashmir and build up as usual an unholy nexus with ruling political class in Jammu & Kashmir. For Kashmiris, staying outside Jammu & Kashmir or even on foreign soil is not an issue as tendency to serve on performance and merit anywhere outside Jammu & Kashmir is rising year after year among Kashmiris irrespective of their age, class, caste and creed. Even this time most of the young Kashmiri IAS, IPS and IFS officers allotted cadres of other states are working excellently in different parts of the country and new All India Services entrants too don’t have any issues in getting the cadres of other state.

For overstaying in Jammu & Kashmir the All India Service Officers of AGMUT cadre will have to work in Jammu & Kashmir only on the whims and wishes of the leaders of the parties ruling at the centre and like J&K leaders the central ministers and the leaders of the parties ruling at the centre won’t be kind enough to spare them even for a single violation of their diktats. Forget about the settlement in Jammu & Kashmir from now onwards both the incumbent and incoming non local All India Service officers won’t have any right to stay or settle permanently in Jammu & Kashmir and build up as usual an unholy nexus with ruling political class in Jammu & Kashmir. For Kashmiris, staying outside Jammu & Kashmir or even on foreign soil is not an issue as tendency to serve on performance and merit anywhere outside Jammu & Kashmir is rising year after year among Kashmiris irrespective of their age, class, caste and creed. Even this time most of the young Kashmiri IAS, IPS and IFS officers allotted cadres of other states are working excellently in different parts of the country and new All India Services entrants too don’t have any issues in getting the cadres of other state.
