Danger behind the mulki rule

Following the ‘Non-Mulki’ agitation, the Government of Hyderabad notified Mulki Rules on
November 1, 1949. These rules provided safeguards to the people of erstwhile Hyderabad
State in government jobs. In terms of the provisions of these rules, no person was to be
appointed to any superior or inferior service if he was not a mulki and any person who was
a non-mulki was deemed to have been dismissed. A person was considered mulki, if he
was a subject of Hyderabad State or by residence in Hyderabad State was entitled to be a mulki. A person was also considered a mulki, if his father had completed 15 years of
service at the time of his birth or the wife of the person was a mulki. A person was
deemed to be a mulki if he was a permanent resident of Hyderabad State for at least 15
years and has abandoned the idea of returning to the place of his previous residence and
has obtained an affidavit to this effect attested by a Magistrate. The Mulki Rules 1949 are
reproduced in Annexure 2.1.
“In regard to appointments and employment in Telangana region, they seem to be having
some fears that educationally more advanced people from Andhra region might usurp all
avenues of employment depriving Telangana people of their due share. I want to make it
clear that we do not want anything in your share of employment at all. We are assuring
you that we would not touch your 1/3 share in employment. Such an assurance is made
not only on my personal behalf but also on behalf of this Assembly and the Government.”
