Srinagar, Oct 15: Government Thursday issued a policy on transfer and posting of Government employees under which employees can be transferred only in the month of April for the better implementation of government schemes.
General Administration Department issued a formal order that reads: “Transfers shall ordinarily be ordered in the first month of the financial year i.e. in April every year excluding the transfer of the teaching staff and transfers to Ladakh region. Transfers of teaching staff shall be considered at the close of the academic session and must be avoided during the academic session.”
“The calendar is mandatory to be followed while effecting the transfers of Government employees. The notification of the calendar has been made with the intent of ensuring that the transfers are limited to a particular period of the financial year so that minimum dislocations occur during the financial year which would ensure better outcomes in the implementation of various Government schemes and policies.”
“It has been observed that the practice of effecting transfers throughout the year is adversely effecting the implementation of schemes and policies of the Government, accordingly, it is hereby ordered that the transfers from now onwards shall strictly be made only within the period notified in the Transfer Policy.” (KNT)
