The state government on Saturday transferred majority of the 16 deputy collector rank officers working in Pune, Mumbai to drought hit
Marathwada region with a stern warning to resume the work before December 26. The decision comes a day after chief minister Devendra
Fadnavis said, “ All the key posts lying vacant in the backward regions of Vidarbha and Marathwada would be immediately filled to
ensure long pending projects in the region would be expedited.” Highly placed sources indicated that almost ten out of 16 officials who have been posted to drought hit Marathwada were serving in Mumbai and Pune.
A senior officer in the ministry of revenue told Indian Express, “ In the past 15 years it has come to notice that often key posts in the backward region of Vidarbha and Marathwada had remained vacant. Often transfer orders issued by the government were not adhered as the priority of officials have been serve in Pune and Mumbai which are the most favoured destinations.”
Even the Congress-NCP ministers did not take the initiative to fill up the vacant posts in backward region which have been facing major
agrarian crisis as projects remained incomplete despite allocation of funds.
In the last one month after taking the charge of the government, the chief minister and chief secretary along with their respective department heads have been reviewing the situation and also decentralized the transfer policy to bring more transparency and accountability. It is also to ensure that individuals are not exploiting the nexus to get the posting of their choice.
Earlier, on December 4 and 8 the state government had undertaken the exercise to fill up a dozen posts in Nagpur and Amravati districts in
