Petition not to transfer DC and MCC Commissioner 

It is with great urgency and earnestness, we the Mysore Citizen urge the concerned Government authority not to transfer the current Deputy Commissioner, Sri. Abhiram Shankar and MCC Commissioner Sri. Gurudatt Hegde. While the former has served here in Mysore for less than 18 months, the latter has been here in Mysuru for less than six months.

No need to quote about the Supreme Court judgment of 2013 on transfer policy. It stated that “Postings and transfers are made frequently, at the whims and fancies of the executive head for political and other considerations and not in public interest.” It was passing the judgement against an appeal on frequent transfers by 83 eminent retired IAS officers like Abid Hussain, T S R Subramanian, N. Gopalswami, etc. In a landmark judgment the SC ordered to constitute a civil service board to guide on transfer policy. According to such a civil board an IAS officer can be transferred only after serving two years.

More than the need to comply with two year rule,, we want to reiterate the well accepted management wisdom that any officer be unable to serve efficiently if he or she is transferred frequently. Having served as DC in Mysuru you can appreciate the urgency to save Kukkerhalli, Chamundi Hills, improve property tax collection, keeping city clean and green, preserving lakes, etc.

Both these officers have taken initiative on these projects and they will suffer if they are transferred now.
