UPSC Cadre Allocation List 2020

The UPSC allows IAS cadres based on the following procedure:

  1. The cadre controlling authorities for IAS (Department of Personnel and Training, IPS(Ministry of Home Affairs), and IFoS(Ministry of Environment, Forests Climate Change) should determine their respective vacancies, including unreserved and reserved categories based on procedures established by them.
  2. The IAS Cadres are now grouped into five zones which are mentioned above in the article.

The candidates should indicate their UPSC Cadre preference in the following order:

  1. Preference for Zone
  2. Preference for cadre
  3. The process should be repeated for each Zone and Cadre in the order of preference.
  4. If the UPSC Candidate fails to indicate their preference for one or more cadre of UPSC, it is presumed that they have no particular preference for that specific Zone or UPSC Cadre and the following may happen:
    • The candidate may be allotted a zone and cadre which has been indicated by them based on their merit rank if enough vacancies are available.
    • If the candidates have not been allotted any cadre for which they have indicated their preference, they will be allotted cadres with other such candidates in the following way:
      • The cadre will be allotted based on the merit ranking of the remaining candidates on vacancies remaining after cadres have been allocated to other candidates who have indicated their preference.
      • The cadres will be arranged in alphabetical order for the purposes of allotment.

For example, if Candidate X and Candidate Y have not indicated their preference, cadre A and Cadre B have vacancies remaining and their order of merit is:

Rank 1: Y

Rank 2: X

Candidate Y will be allotted cadre A and Candidate X will be allotted cadre B.

  1. Physically disabled candidates have an additional option of indicating their UPSC Cadre preference from any one state/cadre (apart from home cadre) from his first preferred zone.
  2. Home Cadre in UPSC will be allotted on merit, preference, and availability of vacancies. For this candidates should indicate their home zone and home cadre for IAS Cadre Allocation or they would not be considered for home care at all.
  3. Cadre allocation has three steps:
    • Insider vacancies are filled first based on category.
    • Candidates eligible for home cadre are allotted UPSC cadre after insider vacancies are filled.
    • Outsider vacancies will be filled next.
  4. A reserved category candidate who gets selected on general merit is eligible to be allocated an unreserved vacancy based on his merit and preference. If an unreserved vacancy is not available for their first preference, they will be allotted a UPSC Cadre from reserved vacancies based on availability, merit, and preference.
  5. UPSC Cadre Allocation is done before the commencement of training for IAS officers proceeding with the Foundation Course at LBSNAA and for IPS and IFoS as soon as the appointments have been made.

UPSC Cadre Allocation Policy seems very complicated, but the only stage where candidates get involved is when they indicate their preference. Preference for an IAS cadre and zone should be indicated carefully as the UPSC cadre controlling authorities do not entertain any change in preference after application.

Also, if one forgets to indicate even one preference, their cadre allocation is done as the last priority, which means that the candidate may not get the preferred cadre even after securing a high merit ranking.

Preparing for the Civil Services Exam well and being attentive during the UPSC Online Application process will get candidates the posting of their choice.
