Cadre of Civil Servant

Cadre in All India Services is decided depending on following factors:

  • Your Rank
  • Number of seats available in your category (Gen/Others)and in your preferred state.
  • Your domicile. If you are a native of State X, you’re an insider else outsider. As is obvious, you can be an insider to only one state.
  • A successful candidate gets the cadre based on what preference he stated for various cadres in his/her DAF provided there are availability.
  • Furthermore, the domicile is an important factor. Outsider seats are always greater than insider seats for a state. This is primarily done to maintain the spirit of an All India Service.
