Union of India v. A. Shainamol, IAS

Indian Administrative Service (Cadre) Rules, 1954 – the allocation of cadre is not a matter of right. A selected candidate has a right to be considered for appointment to the IAS but he has no such right to be allocated to a cadre of his choice or to his home state. Allotment of cadre is an incidence of service. The applicant as a candidate for the All-India Service with eyes wide open has opted to serve anywhere in the country.
