Transfer orders of government officials on paper only
As per information obtained through the Right to Information (RTI) Act, it has been claimed that despite transfer orders, 29 employees of two civic departments of Pune Municipal Corporation have stayed where they were serving. The transfer orders are not being adhered to completely and such persons either continue to work in the posting of their choice with or without the transfer order being cancelled.
The figures illustrated above are only a small representative of the deeper malaise. In practically all public authorities, there are a small, but significant number of officers, who seem to be beyond the purview of any transfer policy. Can RTI provide a solution?
