Guidelines Relating to Allocation of State Services Employees
Introduction
1. The Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Act 2014 was notified on the first of March
2014. The Central Government has, in its notification S O 655 E dated 4th March 2014,
specified the second day of June 2014, as the appointed day for the purposes of the Act,
when the new State of Telangana and the residuary State of Andhra Pradesh came into
existence.
Provisions as to Services
2. By virtue of the provisions of Section 97 of the Act, Article 371D of the Constitution
will continue to remain in force in relation to the States of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.
Part VIII of the Act comprising Sections 76 to 83 relates to ‘Provisions as to Services’,
Section 76 being on All India Services, and Section 83 on the Andhra Pradesh Public
Service Commission. Sections 77 to 82 are the provisions on the strength of which persons
borne on the Andhra Pradesh State cadres shall be allocated to the Successor States.
3. Section 80 of the Act provides for constitution of Advisory Committees and for issue
of allocation guidelines by the Central Government. Accordingly, the Central Government
has in its order dated 29th March 2014 constituted an Advisory Committee for the State
Government Employees, to delineate objective and transparent criteria for the allocation of
personnel belonging to the State Government borne on the existing cadres of different
services of Andhra Pradesh between the two States viz., Andhra Pradesh and Telangana; to
determine the cadre strength; to recommend specific individual allocation of State
Government employees; and to consider any representation made by a State Government
employee(s) affected by such allocation, in order to ensure fair and equitable treatment to all
and to make appropriate recommendations.
Functions of State Reorganization Department (SRD)
4. There shall be a State Reorganization Department (SRD), within the General
Administration Department, functioning in the residuary State of Andhra Pradesh under the
overall guidance of the Chief Secretary to Government. The SRD will be the nodal office for
coordinating all matters relating to implementation of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation
Act, 2014. A State Coordination Committee comprising the Chief Secretaries of the States
2
of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, and the Secretaries in charge of SRD of Andhra Pradesh
and Telangana, with the Secretary SR of Andhra Pradesh as the Member-Secretary, who
shall not be less than the rank of a Secretary to the State Government, will provide effective
support to the Advisory Committee set up under Section 80 of the Act in the discharge of its
functions.
5. The Department shall be responsible for providing the data base of posts, cadre
strength, vacancies, and personnel as on the “appointed day” to the Advisory Committee,
together with all material papers including the laws, rules, instructions, seniority lists, and
details of disputes in relation to seniority, among others. The department shall also be
responsible for submission of proposals relating to the cadre strength of different categories
of posts in the States of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, to secure options from the allocable
employees in the continuing State as on the 2nd June, 2014, to receive representations and
remarks on cadre strength, publish tentative lists of persons proposed to be allocated to the
two States, to receive representations and objections from the affected employees, and to
publish the final lists as determined by the Centre, duly liaising with the State Government
of Telangana and the Andhra Pradesh Government. The Principal Secretary to Government
of Andhra Pradesh in charge of the GA (SR) Department shall be the Ex-Officio Member
Secretary of the AC. He shall provide effective liaison with the Central Government and the
AC on the one hand and the Government of Telangana and the various departments of the
State of Andhra Pradesh on the other, and be responsible for all service matters pertaining to
State Reorganization.
Preparatory Steps
6. The first task of the Advisory Committee shall be the determination of cadre strength
of the different categories of posts in various Services in the Departments in the combined
State of Andhra Pradesh as on 1 June 2014, and to propose allocation of posts and
distribution of cadre strength between the two States. Preparatory to this process, it shall be
the responsibility of the General Administration (State Reorganization Department) of the
Continuing State of Andhra Pradesh to gather information on and determine the following,
to facilitate accurate and equitable estimation of the effective cadre strength of all categories
of posts in the various departments in the two States.
i. A list of all Specified Gazetted categories of posts included in Schedule (3) of the
Andhra Pradesh Public Employment Order, 1975 as amended up to date, for which
3
local cadres have been organized. All the gazetted categories of posts other than the
specified gazetted categories will therefore be allocable between the States.
ii. A list of all gazetted categories of posts other than the specified gazetted categories
that are allocable between the two States.
iii. A list of categories of posts in respect of which multi zonal cadres have been organised
in terms of Sub paragraph 5 of Paragraph (3) of the Andhra Pradesh Public
Employment Order 1975, which transcends the boundaries of the successor States,
posts in which will now be required to be allocated between the two States, on the
basis of the physical location of the posts in the territories comprised in the two States.
Persons holding posts in these cadres shall be given option to exercise preference to
serve either of the States.
iv. A list of all non gazetted categories of posts in the departments which have been
notified as exempt from the requirement of organizing local cadres, under Sub
paragraph (8) of Paragraph (3) of the Order, by virtue of which it becomes necessary to
consider allocation of posts and persons holding such posts.
v. A list of departments which came into existence after the issue of the Presidential
Order to which the provisions of the Presidential Order have not been applied. As
such, no local cadres would have been organised in these departments. Territorial posts
in these departments will be deemed to be allocated based on location. State cadre posts, both
non- gazetted and gazetted, and the personnel holding such posts will be allotted between the two
States in accordance with the principles specified in para-18.
vi. Up to date and authentic lists of the following, which stand exempted under
Paragraph 14 from the provisions of the Presidential Order:
(a) Secretariat Departments,
(b) Offices of Heads of Departments,
(c) Special offices and Establishments,
(d) State level Offices and Institutions, and
(e) Major Development Projects.
The State Government may identify, in respect of the above entities, those
departments, special offices and establishments, State level offices and institutions and
major development projects that exclusively serve territories falling within each
4
successor state, which will be treated as territorial institutions for purposes of this Act.
All posts in these departments, offices, institutions or projects will be deemed allotted
to the successor States where they are physically located.
The rest of the entities notified under the Presidential Order that serve the entire State
only will now be treated as State level Offices, Institutions and Establishments, and
Major Development Projects. The posts in these State Level Entities determined as
such for the purposes of this Act have to be equitably shared between the States. The
State Government of Andhra Pradesh will furnish the list of entities that will be treated
as territorial entities; and those that will be treated as state level entities for the
purposes of the Act to the Advisory Committee with supporting data in respect of
every department to enable the Advisory Committee to ensure accuracy of the
classification by the Government.
vii. Under sub-section (5) of Section 9 of the Act, the Grey Hounds and Octopus forces of
the existing State of A P shall be distributed between the successor States after seeking
the options from the personnel. The State Govt. of AP will give details of the posts and
strength of personnel in place in these forces to the Advisory Committee.
viii. All State level posts (non-territorial) in departments would be equitably apportioned
between the two States in the ratio of population ratio (58.32 for AP and 41.68 for
Telangana) or on the basis of geographic intensity of activity in the two States. The
State Government shall determine the departments, State level posts in which are to be
apportioned on the basis of geographic intensity of activities of the department,
including the rationale and ratio to be adopted for apportionment of posts. The AC
shall cross check the accuracy of empirical validation done by the State Government.
ix. The Member Secretary of the General Administration State Reorganization
Department shall make available to the Committee all data relating to the cadre-wise,
department-wise lists of persons ordered to serve the State of Telangana provisionally
by the Central Government including representations there on and decisions thereof.
Allocation of Posts
7. All sanctioned civil services and civil posts that existed immediately prior to the
appointed day, i.e., 1 June 2014, shall be allotted to the successor States. Sanctioned posts
do not include posts approved to be filled-in on contract or by outsourcing. Allocable posts
5
include vacant posts. Allocation of posts and personnel between the two States in respect of
State Services (other than All India Services) will be undertaken in terms of Sections 77 to
82 of the Act, which may be read as an integral part of these guidelines.
8. The posts of the un-divided State have to be allocated between the Successor States
with reference to the territorial posts relatable to the geographic area of the Successor State,
and the State level posts. The territorial posts located in the geographical area of a Successor
State go to that Successor State; whereas the posts at the State level are to be equitably
shared between the two States. The territorial posts and a fair share of the State level posts
in a category together constitute the total cadre strength of a category of post in a State.
9. State Services posts (other than All India Services) shall be allocated in the following
manner:
i. Posts relatable to a territory which includes areas like village, town, circle, mandal,
division, district, zone, or multi-zone, including posts relatable to institutions, special
offices and establishments, projects, and undertakings to be classified as territorial
entities, where such territories have been transferred in their entirety to a successor
State, shall be deemed to be posts of that successor State on and from the appointed
day i.e., the 2nd June 2014. For removal of doubts it is clarified that mere location of
an entity in the Hyderabad City does not make it a territorial institution, posts in
which are allocable to the State of Telangana. The following illustrative list of
territorial posts stand allotted to the Successor States:
a. All posts in the local, district, zonal and multi-zonal cadres, which fall entirely in
one of the successor States, including those posts in multi zonal cadres that
transcend the State boundary, which are located within the respective States.
b. Other categories of territorial posts in departments, which have not been organised
into local cadres by virtue of exemption from the Presidential Order or otherwise.
c. Posts in departments or entities which fall solely and serve exclusively one of the
States
d. Posts in special offices and establishments serving solely one State
e. Posts in major development projects solely falling within and serving one State
f. Posts in state level institutions falling within and serving one State solely.
ii. All other posts, which are not exclusively relatable to areas going only to one State,
like posts in the Secretariat and offices of Heads of Departments; and State Level
6
Offices and Institutions, Special Offices and Establishments and Major Development
Projects, determined as such for the purposes of this Act, if any, serving more than one
State, including posts belonging to the organized State and Subordinate Services cadre
posts in these offices, may be allotted on the basis of the ratio of population of the two
States. Accordingly all regular sanctioned posts in every category of posts mentioned
above shall be divided in the ratio of population of the two States as per 2011 census
i.e., 41.68:58.32 between the State of Telangana and the State of Andhra Pradesh
respectively. However in case of departments responsible for activities that do not
exclusively conform to population criterion, the apportionment of posts between the
Successor States may be based on the ratio of geographic intensity of activity of the
department concerned in the two States, validated by empirical evidence.
10. It is clarified that the State level posts that are divisible between the two States
comprise two distinct types of posts in a department, viz.:
i. Posts at the state level of organised State-wide Services in a department for which the
whole State is the unit of appointment, officers holding posts in which are liable for
transfer throughout the State; and
ii. Posts in the State level entities in a department serving the whole State where the
unit of appointment is the office of the Secretariat head, the H o D or the Head of the
State level entity.
Posts in a category belonging to an organised State-wide Service like the Andhra Pradesh
Agricultural Service comprise the following:
ü Territorial posts which are deemed to be allotted to the respective States; and
ü Posts in State level entities that have to be distributed between the States in the
proportion specified.
Determination of Cadre Strength of Allocable Categories of Posts
11. The G A (SR) Department shall propose the cadre strength of all categories of
allocable posts in the undivided State on the day preceding the appointed day, i.e., June 01,
2014, and the distribution of posts thereof between the successor States, in accordance with
the principles set forth in these Guidelines, after verifying and satisfying itself of the details
of sanctioned posts category wise, cadre-wise, grade-wise.
12. The Advisory Committee shall in turn scrutinize and arrive at the cadre strength in
the State as on the 01 June 2014, and the distribution of posts in each category of posts in
7
every department between the two States. The statement will clearly indicate the posts
including vacant posts allocated in each category in every department, in the two States as
on the ‘appointed day’. While determining cadre strength and distributing posts the
following may be kept in mind:
i. Posts included in the AIS cadres will not be allocated
ii. AIS cadre posts in a combined cadre of AIS and State Services posts in a category will
not be allocated.
iii. Automatic advancement scales, which are personal to those who have completed
specified number of years of service, will not be treated as separate cadres for
allotment purposes.
iv. There are posts in different grades in a category. For example in the case of the class of
deputy collectors there are deputy collectors of ordinary grade, selection grade and
special category. For the purpose of allotment each of these will be a separate
category. Similarly, doctors of each speciality will be treated as a separate category for
the purposes of apportionment.
v. Where, however, the number of posts of different grades in a category is too small
making it difficult to apportion in the specified ratio, such posts could be clubbed for
allocation.
vi. There are a large number of single/ isolated posts or posts the number of which cannot
be proportionately divided and allotted. A single post could be allotted to the State for
which it was created or the State that it serves most or with reference to the State to
which the person holding the post is allotted.
vii. No allocable posts should be omitted while distributing the cadre strength between the
two States.
13. The recommendation of the Advisory Committee in regard to cadre strength should
be finalized only after the Committee places its principles of determination along with the
actual cadre strength proposed with requisite details thereof, on the website of the State
Governments for a period of ten days, to allow comments/ representations to be made
thereon; and the Committee takes a view on the issues that may be raised by the
stakeholders. Once the cadre strength is determined on this basis, shortages in different
services in the undivided State of Andhra Pradesh vis-à-vis their present cadre strength
should be distributed pro-rata between the successor States so that neither State is at a
disadvantage. The cadre strength of departments so arrived at in consultation with the States
shall be approved by the Government of India.
8
Allocation of Personnel
14. Final allocation of State cadre personnel (other than AIS) shall be done in terms of
Section 77(2) and (3) of the Act reproduced below:
(2) As soon as may be after the appointed day, the Central Government shall, by general or
special order, determine the successor State to which every person referred to in sub-section (1)
shall be finally allotted for service, after consideration of option received by seeking option from
the employees, and the date with effect from which such allotment shall take effect or be deemed to
have taken effect:
Provided that even after the allocation has been made, the Central Government may, in order to
meet any deficiency in the service, depute officers of other State services from one successor State to
the other:
Provided further that as far as local, district, zonal and multi-zonal cadres are concerned, the
employees shall continue to serve, on or after the appointed day, in that cadre:
Provided also that the employees of local, district, zonal and multi-zonal cadres which fall
entirely in one of the successor States, shall be deemed to be allotted to that Successor State:
Provided also that if a particular zone or multi-zone falls in both the successor States, then the
employees of such zonal or multi-zonal cadre shall be finally allotted to one or the other successor
States in terms of the provisions of this sub-section.
(3) Every person who is finally allotted under the provisions of sub-section (2) to a
successor State shall, if he is not already serving therein, be made available for serving in the
successor State from such date as may be agreed upon between the Governments of the successor
States or, in default of such agreement, as may be determined by the Central Government:
Provided that the Central Government shall have the power to review any of its orders issued
under this section.
15. Under Section 81 of the Act the Central Government may give such directions to the
State Government of Andhra Pradesh and the State Government of Telangana as may
appear to it to be necessary for the purpose of giving effect to the provisions of sections 76 to
80; and the State Governments shall comply with such directions.
16. All employees of local, district, zonal, and multi-zonal cadres, which fall entirely in
one of the Successor States, shall be deemed allotted to that Successor State with effect from
9
the appointed day of June 02, 2014. All employees who are transferable throughout the
State, and employees at the State level belonging to the Secretariat, offices of HoD and State
level offices, Institutions, and Special establishments and Major Development Projects shall
be allotted to the Successor States. The following illustrative groups of personnel have to be
considered for being allocated between the two States:
a. Holders of posts in the organized State cadres other than those that have been
localized
b. Holders of other posts which have not been localized
c. Holders of posts in the Secretariat
d. Holders of posts in offices of heads of departments
e. Holders of posts in state level offices and special offices and establishments
f. Holders of posts in Major development projects if any
g. Holders of Trans- border multi zonal cadres posts, and
h. Octopus and greyhound forces personnel.
17. A review of personnel strength of each category of posts shall be done by the
Advisory Committee to determine the number of persons to be allotted to each cadre of a
category to the two States; in the light of the cadre strength of each category of post in a
department on the appointed day. Thereafter the Committee will determine, in the light of
the proposal received from the GA (SR) Department, the details of persons to be allotted to
each State in respect of each category, keeping in view the status of seniority lists of cadres
and disputes in relation to seniority and implications thereof, in accordance with the
principles and procedure herein after prescribed.
Principles guiding Allocation
18. The following principles and procedure shall guide the final allocation of personnel:
a) Persons who immediately before the appointed day are serving on substantive basis in
connection with the affairs of the existing State of Andhra Pradesh shall be considered
for allocation. Employees holding posts on purely ad-hoc basis immediately before the
‘appointed day’ shall be considered against substantive posts (or regular) held by them
on the ‘appointed day’ if any.
b) Allocation of employees would be based on final distribution of posts including vacant
posts proposed by the Advisory Committee in consultation with the successor States
and after approval of the Central Government.
10
c) Allocable employees shall be considered for allotment between the successor States on
the basis of seniority list as available on June 01, 2014.
d) The employees to be allocated would include persons who are absconding, long
absentees, those on leave preparatory to retirement or other kinds of leave, those under
suspension, persons undergoing training and employees on deputation, including
foreign-service deputation. There shall not be any case of an employee not being
allocated to either of the successor States.
e) State service employees who hold allocable posts shall be allocated after seeking
option from the employees indicating their preference to serve in either of the
successor States after taking their option into consideration. It shall be open to the
Central Government to allot the person to any successor State in the administrative
interest or in the exigencies of public service.
f) The allocation shall be done in order of seniority as available on June 01, 2014. Those
who have opted, who are ‘local candidates’ relatable to the State to which they have
opted, shall, in order of their seniority, be considered for allocation first. If allocable
posts in that category remain, others will be considered in reverse order of seniority by
allotting the junior most.
g) Employees who are not local in relation to both States will be allocated on the basis of
nativity / domicile based on due verification and certification of nativity / domicile by
the Head of the concerned Department.
h) Employees who are members of the Scheduled Castes or the Scheduled Tribes shall be
considered for allocation on the basis of their option, if they are local candidates or
domicile. In the event an SC or ST employee has not exercised his option he / she
shall be allocated to the State of his / her domicile, as determined based on his / her
service register.
i) Class IV employees and drivers of light vehicles shall be allocated on the basis of
option or local candidature, as far as possible.
11
j) Spouse of an All India Service (AIS) officer who is a State government employee shall
be allocated, where so desired by the spouse, to the State to which the AIS officer is
allocated.
k) Spouses in State government and related state government institutions shall as far as
practicable be allotted to the same State, after considering options made by them.
l) Cases of alleviation of extreme personal hardship of State government employees will
be exceptions to the principle:
i) Widowed, legally separated and divorced women employees may be
considered for allocation to the State to which option is exercised.
ii) Handicapped persons of more than 40% disability may be allocated on the
basis of option, subject to the procedure prescribed by the State Government.
iii) The employees who are known to be facing serious medical hardship, in cases
of Cancer (self or dependent family), Open Heart / Bye-pass surgery, and Kidney
Transplantation / Kidney failure and continuing on dialysis (self) shall be considered
for allotment on special grounds on priority on the basis of option, subject to strict
proof of verification as per the procedure prescribed by the State Government.
m) Vacant posts allocated to a State shall not be used to allot a person unless there are
more employees who are local candidates of that State.
n) Local candidature shall be as defined under the Andhra Pradesh Public Employment
Order, 1975 as may be entered in the service record or as certified by the competent
authority, with strict reference to the school records. False claim of local candidature
or production of false certificate with the intent to mislead shall be punishable as a
criminal offence and also be subject to major disciplinary proceedings.
o) Cadre composition with reference to direct recruits/ promotees and recruitments by
transfer, and reserved categories of persons as on the appointed day (observed
percentage of reservations for different groups) may, as far as practicable, be kept in
view while allotting personnel to the two cadres.
p) There are certain departments in which the number of posts in a category in the
department is limited, but there are many more persons holding posts in the category
12
on tenure in other departments or on foreign-service deputation. In such cases
personnel who are in excess of the sanctioned strength may be distributed between the
States duly reckoning the tenure posts or foreign-service posts of the category in the
respective States without their being formally added to the cadre strength, for the
purpose of allocation of personnel between the states.
q) Where personnel in the seniority list of a category of post is appointed based on
subject specialization like in the case of teaching jobs or medical specializations,
allotment of posts and personnel in such cases should be subject specialization wise.
r) Officers who have retired/died after the appointed day but before allocation will also
be allotted.
s) Employees belonging to allocable categories of one department working in another
department or organization on deputation/ tenure basis will be allotted by the parent
department of the officer.
t) Local cadre personnel, who are deemed allotted to the State in which the local cadre is
situate, working on tenure basis in the Secretariat, Offices of Heads of Department,
State Level institutions and Special offices and Establishments and Major
Development Projects, as declared under the Presidential Order, will be repatriated to
the parent local cadre.
u) Personnel ‘on other duty’ will be reverted to their parent offices or departments for
allotment.
v) Candidates who stand allotted by the APPSC or other recruiting agency before the
appointed date will be asked to indicate their preference to a State. They will be liable

Reorganisation Act 2014 and other similar entities on 1 June 2014 while making
allocation of employees between the two States.
x) The actual allocation of personnel to States shall be guided by the public interest and
the administrative needs of the posts in the states.
13
y) Posts created subsequent to the appointed day by either State Governments will be
reckoned, if so desired by that State, for the purposes of final allotment of state services
employees.

Applicability-Clarification to superannuation 58 to 60 years in A.P.

        GOVERNMENT OF ANDHRA PRADESH
        FINANCE (HRM IV) DEPARTMENT

      Circular Memo No.4179/14 /HRM IV/ 2014 Dated: 02.07.2014.

Sub: -Public Services – Age of Superannuation of Government Employees – Enhancement of age of superannuation from 58 to 60 years in AP Public Employment (Regulation of Age of Superannuation) (Amendment) Act, 2014 (Act 4 of 2014) – Applicability - Clarification – Issued – Regarding.

Ref: -Andhra Pradesh Public Employment (Regulation of Age of Superannuation) (Amendment) Act, 2014 (Act 4 of 2014).
                                                                                    oOo

In the reference cited, among others, an amendment has been issued to sub-section (1) of section 3 of the Andhra Pradesh Public Employment (Regulation of Age of Superannuation) Act, 1984 enhancing the age of superannuation of the Government employees from 58 to 60 years.
As per sub-section (2) of section 1 of the Andhra Pradesh Public Employment (Regulation of Age of Superannuation) Act, 1984, the provisions of the said Act shall apply to the following categories of employees:
i) persons appointed to public services and posts in connection with the affairs of the state;
ii) officers and other employees working in any local authority, whose salaries and allowances are paid out of the consolidated fund of the State;
iii) persons appointed to the Secretariat Staff of the Houses of the State Legislature and
iv) every other officer or employee whose conditions of service are regulated by the rules framed under the proviso to Article 309 of the Constitution of India before the commencement of this Act, other than the Village Officers and Law Officers; whether appointed before or after the commencement of this Act.
However certain doubts have been expressed on the applicability of the enhanced age of superannuation to the employees of the urban and rural local bodies, state public enterprises, autonomous institutions and other entities and to the teaching and non-teaching employees of the aided educational institutions and universities.
2. In order to make the position clear, the following clarifications are issued:
Whether the employees of the urban and rural local bodies including the teaching and non-teaching employees in the educational institutions in their jurisdiction, are eligible for the enhanced retirement age of 60 years
The salaries of these employees except those belonging to the Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation and the Vijayawada Municipal Corporation are paid through the treasuries. Therefore, these employees are covered under clause (ii) of sub-section (2) of section 1 of Andhra Pradesh Public Employment (Regulation of Age of Superannuation) Act, 1984. Therefore, the employees belonging to the urban and rural local bodies other than the Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation and the Vijayawada Municipal Corporation, are eligible for the enhanced retirement age of 60 years.
In respect of the above two municipal corporations the Municipal Administration and Urban Development Department may examine the issue in greater detail and send necessary proposals for extension of the benefit to the employees of the GVMC and the VMC.

Whether the employees of the aided educational institutions are eligible for the enhanced retirement
The age of superannuation of the teaching and non-teaching employees of the aided educational institutions are governed by section 78-A of theage of 60 years;

Andhra Pradesh Education Act, 1982. As amended by the Act 17 of 1993, the teaching and non-teaching staff not belonging to the last grade service shall retire on the afternoon of last day of the month in which he attains the age of 58 (fifty eight) years, whereas the members belonging to last grade service shall retire on the afternoon of the last day of the month in which he attains the age of 60 (sixty) years. The A.P. Public Employment (Regulation of Age of Superannuation) (Amendment) Act, 2014 did not amend any provisions of the A.P. Education Act, 1982. Hence the Education Department may examine the issue as per the provisions of the A.P. Education Act, 1982 and take necessary further action in the matter duly following the procedure laid down in the AP Government Business Rules.

Whether the enhanced age of retirement will be applicable to the employees of the state public enterprises and other autonomous institutions as per the Andhra Pradesh Public Employment (Regulation of Age of Superannuation) (Amendment) Act, 2014;

No.
As they are not included in sub-section (2) under section 1 of the Andhra Pradesh Public Employment (Regulation of Age of Superannuation) Act, 1984, the provisions of the said Act are not applicable to the employees of the public enterprises and autonomous institutions. Hence the amendment to the above said Act is also not applicable to the employees of the state public enterprises and other autonomous institutions.
Whether the clarification issued by the General Administration (PE.I) Department vide Letter No. 856/PE.I/84-1 dated 1-9-1984 to the effect that the ordinance No. 24 of 1984 (in which age of superannuation was enhanced to 58 years) is mutatis-mutandis applicable to the employees of the Public Enterprises in the State and the officers of the PE, is still applicable and is in vogue;

No.
The letter of the General Administration Department is not relevant in the changed circumstances due to promulgation of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014. The public enterprises and other autonomous institutions of the erstwhile composite state of Andhra Pradesh are included in the Ninth Schedule of the Act and are allowed one year time, under section 82 of the said Act, to apportion these entities. As the employees of these institutions are not yet apportioned between the two successor states of Telangana and the Andhra Pradesh, they cannot be treated at present as employees of the entities belonging to the residuary successor state of Andhra Pradesh. Therefore, the enhanced age of superannuation cannot be made applicable mutatis mutandis to the public enterprises of the erstwhile composite state of Andhra Pradesh.

Whether the employees of the institutions and training centres etc., included in the Tenth Schedule of the A.P. Reorganisation Act, 2014 are eligible for the enhanced retirement age of 60 years;

No.
As per Section 75 of the A.P. Reorganisation Act, 2014 , the institutions in the erstwhile State of Andhra Pradesh which are located now in the residuary State of Andhra Pradesh or the State of Telangana, as the case may be, specified in the tenth schedule, shall render service or continue to provide the facilities to the other State for such period and upon such terms and conditions as may be agreed upon between the two State Governments within a period of one year from the appointed day or, if no agreement is reached within the said period as may be fixed by order of the Central Government. In view of the fact that such agreement between the two State Governments has yet to be arrived at separately for each institution and also considering the fact that at present these institutions do not wholly belong to the residuary State of Andhra Pradesh, the provisions of The A.P. Public Employment (Regulation of Age ofSuperannuation) (Amendment) Act, 2014, will not apply to these institutions.

Whether the non-teaching employees of the Universities are eligible for the enhanced retirement age of 60 years on the ground that the Government is sanctioning block grants to the Universities from which the salaries of these employees are being paid;

No.
The Universities are statutory bodies created under the specific acts of the State Legislature which have specific provisions relating to cadre management and service conditions of their employees. The A.P. Public Employment (Regulation of Age of Superannuation) (Amendment) Act, 2014, did not amend any provisions of the acts pertaining to the Universities in the State.

Hence the Education Department may examine the issue and take necessary further action duly following the procedure laid down in the AP Government Business Rules.

3. All the Departments of the Secretariat are requested to take necessary action to communicate the above instructions to the Universities, aided educational institutions, PSUs, and other autonomous institutions under their control and ensure that there is no violation of any provisions of the A.P. Public Employment (Regulation of Age of Superannuation) (Amendment) Act, 2014 and any other Act that deals with the age of superannuation of the employees governed by the respective Acts.
