Two days after the Haryana government reshuffled the departments of 27 IAS officers, another round of transfers took place Wednesday in which departments of six IAS officers were reshuffled. Some of them have been transferred again within two days.

Among those is Pradeep Kasni who has been transferred for the 66th time. On September 19, Kasni who was holding the charge of Director General Science and Technology was was posted as Secretary, Finance Department. He was shifted today and has been posted as Director General and Secretary, Welfare of Scheduled Castes and Backward Classes Department.

Another such case is of Subhash Chandra who was earlier posted as Director General Environment Department. He was posted as Secretary, Revenue and Disaster Management Department, Director General, Consolidation of Holdings, Land Records on September 19 and was posted today as Secretary, Revenue and Disaster Management Department-II and Secretary, Finance Department.

Nitin Kumar Yadav, Managing Director, Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam and Director, Power Reforms has been posted as Secretary, Home-I Department.

He would also be Managing Director, Haryana Scheduled Castes Finance and Development Corporation, Backward Classes and Economically Weaker Section Kalyan Nigam and Haryana Land Reclamation Development Corporation. Strongly criticising the move, a senior IAS officer said that the government is functioning anyway that it wants. “This time transfers are not being done after months, but within days. As per rules, officers should be given charge of a department for atleast two years. The government is clearly not following this. It shows that the government’s intentions are not clear,” said an officer on condition of anonymity.

The Haryana government has appointed Shatrujeet Singh Kapoor, an IPS officer as Chairman cum Managing Director of Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam and Chairman Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam. An IPS officer of 1990 batch, he is currently holding the rank of Additional Director General, Crime in Police Department.
