The state government has raised the limit of transfer of officials from 2% to 6%, keeping in mind of the huge demand it will cause.
As per the new order passed by the Department of Personnel and Administrative Reforms (DPAR), in every department, six percent of employees can be transferred.
DPAR sources stated that this decision to increase the transfer limit was received as a result of a large amount of pressure from the government employees asking transfers from their original posting. If sources are accepted, the MLAs of the ruling alliance government were intimidating the state government to increase the transfer limit as it will support them acquire the officers of their option in their constituencies. All the departments have been sought to use the online transfer system to secure transparent in the process.
