Posting of promoted revenue officials creates flutter

The official documents reveal that these officials have remained non-transferred from the posts and places, they have been occupying for past 15 years.

Several officials of revenue department, who were promoted, have been clinging to their earlier posts and places, creating confusion among the higher authorities.

According to reports, some officials, promoted as NaibTehsildar are still holding charge as ‘Patwari’ of the area from where they were officially relieved from the earlier responsibility. 

The official documents reveal that these officials have remained non-transferred from the posts and places, they have been occupying for past 15 years.

Some of them were appointed as Patwari, promoted and posted as Girdawar and NaibTehsildar at the same place.  

“Deputy Commissioner Srinagar recently issued transfer orders of some revenue officials including that of Patwari of HalqaHabakKhushki who was transferred and posted as PatwariHalqaPalpora. However, when he went to take charge at Palpora, he was surprised as the person from whom he had to take over denied to have served as Patwari of PalporaHalqa at all,” said an official, wishing not to be named.

 “I, Farooq Ahmad Khan, additional PatwariPalpora have not taken any charge as yet from the concerned Patwari,” reads the response by Khan on January 21, 2015 to the order issued by DC.

Khan, in his communication also writes that the charge of Patwari was ‘held by the concerned NaibTehsildar.’

Some revenue officials said that there were many such cases in the department. “We have brought these issues into the notice of higher ups who assured action but nothing happened so far,” they rued.
