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 of the government, heads of departments, divisional commissioners and district 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 earlier circular in which directives had been issued to stop attachments. The instructions should strictly be adhered to. Flouting these instructions, if any transferred officer or employee were found attached to any other office other than their new posting, strictest disciplinary action would be taken against 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.

In the transfer policy 2014-15, by deciding the cadre and category wise limit of transfers, provision had been made that the mutual and own cost transfer will not come under the prescribed limit. Application for mutual transfer should be signed by both the applicants jointly. Own cost transfer will not come in the category of mutual transfer. Keeping it in mind, the prescribed limit of transfer should strictly be adhered to, the chief secretary said.
