CAT asks K’taka Govt to revisit transfer of ex-DC B Sharath from Mysuru

Mysuru, March 31:-Terming the Karnataka government’s order of transfer of B Sharath from the post of Mysuru Deputy Commissioner within a month as ineffective and invalid, the Bengaluru bench of Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) order on Monday (March 29) has asked the government to revisit the transfer.

CAT also took note of the state government’s decision to keep Civil Services Board (CSB) in abeyance as CSB was constituted to make recommendations in case IAS officers are transferred before the completion of minimum specified tenure of two-years.

CAT made the observation while directing the Competent Authority to revisit the order to transfer B Sharath from the post of Deputy Commissioner of Mysuru. CAT also directed to complete the exercise in a month after taking recommendation of the CSB, which should give Sharath an opportunity  to present his case before making a recommendation to the Competent Authority.

A bench of Judicial Member Suresh Kumar Monga and Administrative Member Rakesh Gupta passed the order while disposing of the original application filed by Sharath, questioning the appointment of Rohini Sindhuri as the DC of Mysuru on September 28,2020. (NAV, Inputs: Agencies)
