Officials transferred to scheduled areas will be relieved within 3 days
RAIPUR: The officers and employees transferred from
non-scheduled areas to scheduled areas would mandatorily be relieved within
three days. The state government has taken this decision to ensure prompt
compliance of transfer orders.
Chief Secretary Vivek Dhand, in accordance to the
transfer policy 2014-15, has issued circular in this regard to all departments

collectors on Tuesday.
In the circular, it was mentioned that some
departmental heads and district officers have not been relieving some officers
and employees from their charges after their transfer or after relieving they
have been attached to other offices. As a result, adherence to the transfer
orders is delayed.
In the circular, the chief secretary referred an

instructions should strictly be adhered to. Flouting these instructions, if any
transferred officer or employee were found attached to any other office other

the officer who attached them, along with the transferred officer or employee
concerned, he added.
Referring to para 5 of the memo issued by the general
administration department on June 5, 2014, the chief secretary said that
instructions had been issued for strict adherence to the transfer orders. For
the prompt compliance of the orders, officers and employees transferred from
non-scheduled areas to scheduled areas should be relieved within three days of
the issuance of the order, he added.

mutual transfer should be signed by both the applicants jointly. Own cost
