At least 10 senior Building department officials in have not been transferred out of the department for at least 10 years. South corporation Leader of Opposition Farhad Suri presented a list of senior officials who have not be shifted out despite a Central Vigilance Commission ruling that officials holding sensitive posts should be transferred after three years.
Three other officials from the Engineering department have been transferred to other posts in Building department,but not transferred out of the department despite being chargesheeted,Suri alleged.
He made allegations of corruption in the Building department and also in the transfers and postings of its senior officials. Suri sought a reply from the corporation commissioner on the issue last year,but he said he did not get an answer.
Corporation rules says that they should be transferred after a year. There are few officers who have been transferred to these posts and the vigilance report came after they were given the posts, Suri said.
The allegation of keeping officers on vet posts has come after the commissioner claimed that no officer in Building department will stay on after completing a tenure of three years.
We have accepted a procedure where no officer would stay on a sensitive post in Building department for three years and above. It is in my knowledge that few people have stayed on for longer, the commissioner said.
