The Rajasthan government has relocated a total of 336 Rajasthan Administrative Services (RAS) employees in a significant administrative reorganization.
The Department of Personnel ordered all affected personnel to follow the official notification in a statement released on Monday. The change of leadership is significant because it occurs before the state’s upcoming assembly election.
Earlier on June 2 the state government transferred seven Indian Administrative Service (IAS) and 30 Indian Police Service (IPS) officers have been transferred.
“It has come to the notice that in the administrative secretariat and other department offices, the officers keep on continuing on a particular post and department only. This affects the transparency and credibility of the administration,” according to a government notification.
The announcement continued, “Therefore, it is directed that the term of one officer in a particular position shall be a maximum of three years and in rare situations, five years, with a view to maintaining trust in the administration.
