Setting an excellent example of transparency in transfers, the Minor Irrigation department, on Thursday, revealed that more than two dozen engineers were eligible for transfers and all of them had been given their desired postings.
Principal Secretary (Namami Gange and Rural Water Supply) Anurag Srivastava called the engineers coming under the purview of transfers in the Jal Nigam auditorium together and gave everyone a chance to select the vacancies appearing on the screen on the basis of merit and seniority.
During this entire process, Jal Shakti Minister Swatantra Dev Singh also remained connected through video conferencing from Hyderabad.
Being highly impressed with the method, the minister called upon the engineers to work in the same transparent manner.
The principal secretary also gave the letter of new postings to the engineers in the Jal Nigam auditorium itself.
The Jal Shakti minister, while addressing the meeting from Hyderabad, asked the engineers where they wanted to be posted. One by one engineer told the minister their desired posting. Accepting it, Singh instructed the principal secretary to transfer them on the vacant posts as per the rules.
It is noteworthy that during the transparent transfer process at the Jal Nigam headquarters, the engineers who could not join the video conferencing were called by the principal secretary and asked where they wanted to be posted.
Singh congratulated the engineers who got the desired posting and asked them to work hard with complete transparency, honesty and fairness to fulfill the dreams of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
“Do the best work in your districts in the same transparent manner and complete the projects on time,” Singh said and added, “In view of rains, all preparations should be made in time.”
