His last posting in J&K was Commissioner Vigilance.
Born on 28-05-1952 in Srinagar, Khoda too had joined as J&K cadre IPS officer on 14-07-1974. Being younger to Gill, he is due to reach superannuation on 31-05-2012. After holding senior positions in the home state, Khoda was appointed as DG of J&K Police in July 2007.

Rajendra is from Andhra Pradesh and Gupta is a state subject.
In IAS, Chief Secretary Madhav Lal who was born in Delhi on 04-06-1955, happens to be the senior most among all J&K cadre IAS Officers. He is from IAS batch from 1977. Recalled from central deputation, Madhav Lal took over the chief secretary of J&K state on 01-02-2011. He shares the owner of being J&K cadre with only Pravez Dewan (DOB 13-10-1954) who is on central deputation followed by a study leave till 01-12-2011. Dewan is a resident of Lari Dara village of Baramullah district but his father had settled in Delhi in 1960's.
In IFS, Jagdish Kishwan has the distinction of been the only officer of 1975 batch, J&K cadre after the retirement of Irshad Ahmed Khan on August 31, 2011.

He was however, conformed as PCCF earlier this year.
