New transfer policy: Himachal govt fixes minimum tenure of 3 years

April 10, 2008

Shimla: Putting its seal on the new transfer policy, the Himachal Pradesh government today took a bold decision to fix a minimum tenure of three years at any particular place for a government employee. The new policy also makes mandatory for all employees of Himachal Pradesh government to serve once during their lifetime in tribal and hard areas of the state. Keeping in view the academic calendar of schools and colleges, the new policy also states that majority transfers should only be carried out in April and May.
For the purpose of service in tribal areas, these areas have been restructured by excluding places well catered to by road connectivity and other infrastructure. Service in tribal areas would now also be the mandatory criteria for getting promotion. However, the amendment would not be applicable to those employees who would retire in next five years.
With the announcement of the new policy, the government also lifted the ban on transfers, which was in effect till May 31. As per the directions of the High Court, the government has for the first time made it compulsory for all employees of education and health department who have served in urban areas for more than 10 years, to serve in rural areas for at least 3 years.
Due care of facilities would be taken of couple cases, widows, army wives, handicapped and those on verge of retirement. Senior officials and district level officers would not be appointed in their native district. If the transfer order is silent over wait for reliever, which has been binding, the concerned official can take immediately join at the new posting after taking relieving orders from the authorized official.
