Jammu and Kashmir cadre of IAS, IPS and IFoS officers merged with AGMUTPTI | Srinagar | Updated: 07-01-2021 20:19 IST | Created: 07-01-2021 20:19 IST
According to a notification signed by President Ram Nath Kovind and issued by the Ministry of Law and Justice, the members of IAS, IPS and Indian Forest Service for the existing cadre of Jammu and Kashmir will now become part of AGMUT (Arunachal, Goa, Mizoram and Union Territories) cadre.
Necessary modifications may be made in the corresponding cadre allocation rules by the central government.
The notification said the officers borne or allocated to AGMUT cadre shall function in accordance with the rules framed by the central government.
The move comes over a year after the Centre abrogated Jammu and Kashmir's special status under Article 370 of the Constitution and bifurcated the state into union territories in August 2019.
