If the AC(Admin) failed to follow ,Circular bearing No.B12(6A)/PR/363/2013-14, dated 20.03.2014 and court order appellate authority is requested to initiate disciplinary action against AC(Admin) for this grave irregularity committed by her violating Circular bearing No.B12(6A)/PR/363/2013-14, dated 20.03.2014 and court order .I shall write letter to DPAR /UDD in this respect after appellate authority order after hearing me for initiating disciplinary action for violating norms of transfers and commission of grave irregularity while in Public service as per rules . PIO and AC(Admin) to my RTI Application has not provided me information and Reasons for the transfer as per The Commissioner,BBMP,Circular bearing No.B12(6A)/PR/363/2013-14, dated 20.03.2014 as no transfer can be effected for C&D groups employees within three years and Smt Geetha Junior Health Inspector has not even completed one year at ward number 76 and she is efficient and able officer having good track record and she have no complaint from public and corporator and MLA of the area (Vague complaint cannot be accepted as per circular point one ) .As there is no specific complaint registered against Smt Geetha Junior Health Inspector and no enquiry held or prima-facie guilt established as both have letters of coporators in their defense . The corporators are allegedly very much busy in transferring the officers even in the middle of the year. It is reported that a request has been made to issue directions to cancel the transfer order and to stop harassing and targeting woman employees in BBMP by way of transfers in middle of the year . During the middle of the no transfers can be made and it is requested to stop illegal transfer of Smt Geetha Junior Health Inspector on 04-02-2016 by Assistant Commissioner (Admin) BBMP working in ward number 76 and it is clear case of discrimination against woman .As per The Commissioner ,BBMP, Circular bearing No.B12(6A)/PR/363/2013-14, dated 20.03.2014 no transfer can be effected for C&D groups employees within three years and Smt Geetha Junior Health Inspector has not even completed one year at ward number 76 and she is efficient and able officer having good track record and she have no complaint from public and corporator and MLA of the area are registred or investigated and no prima facie guilt is established . BBMP commissioner has been directed in writ petition No.6577/2014 (s-tr) dated the 1st day of April, 2014 that henceforth Commissioner shall effect the transfers and posting in terms of said circular cited. In view of the above and the undertaking given by the Commissioner of BBMP by way of affidavit filed in HKHC writ petition No.6577/2014 (s-tr) dated the 1st day of April, 2014 , that the transfers and postings of the employees in Group 'C' and 'D' Cadres, henceforth, would be regulated in terms of the said Circular,The action of Assistant Commissioner (Admin) BBMP transferring Smt Geetha Junior Health Inspector on 04-02-2016 is illegal and arbitrary . In view of the displeasure expressed by the HKHC on the frequent transfers and postings effected, though within the same zone, but on the basis of the recommendation letters issued by the politicians, which is not in administrative exigencies, the Commissioner was directed to come up with a proposal to avoid the frequent transfers and to prevent the political interference. The Commissioner submitted that a resolution dated 30.08.2012 was adopted by the BBMP with regard to the minimum tenure of Group 'A' and 'B' Officers, as two years and in respect of Group 'C' and 'D' Cadres, as three years, in a place. The Commissioner submitted that, within the zone, the power to transfer has been delegated to the Joint Commissioners and in view of the developments noticed , he assured that a Circular would be immediately issued, restricting the transfer and posting of Group 'C' and 'D' employees, within a zone, for a period of three years. Accordingly a circular was issued Circular bearing No.B12(6A)/PR/363/2013-14, dated 20.03.2014, issued by the Commissioner, BBMP and submitted that, henceforth, the transfers/postings of Group 'C' and 'D' employees would be regulated in terms of the said Circular.
