After a major reshuffle that saw several IAS and other senior officers transferred last week, the government is all set to go for a major overhaul in the middle rung administration.
Sources told KNS state government is preparing a list of officers including directors, deputy directors who will be transferred within a period of one week. “Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed is personally going through bio-data of each officer before the final list is prepared,” they said.
Sources added that around 100 deputy directors are also likely to be transferred as they are working in the same department from almost three years. “The CM, after going through officers’ track records, has asked for a list of officials along with their tenure from the respective heads of department. The authorities have compiled a list of honest and upright officers who would be given important postings,” they said.
A senior official told KNS that Chief Minister wants changes in the functioning of the state’s overall administration and in this regard he has also forwarded a communication to the higher officials to prepare a list of officials along with their tenure. “The government on the directions of CM has started work in this regard and the General Administration Department is compiling the list which will be forwarded to the Chief Minister’s office,” he said.
Moreover, sources said that the Chief Ministers secretariat is also compiling a list of honest and upright officers who would be given important postings. “The idea behind the reshuffle is to make the middle-rung administration more efficient and responsive to the people so that concrete steps would be taken towards the development,” they added.
