20 MIDC officials return to posts after MAT stay on transfers

Mumbai: Around 20 officers attached with the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) who were transferred out of the state agency last week have returned to their posts. The move has become possible after the Maharashtra Administrative Tribunal (MAT) stayed the state government’s transfer decision. According to a person familiar with the development, the en masse transfers, ordered by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde-led government were cited by concerned officers as a typical case of vendetta against the previous Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) alliance government. Many officers were moved out of their postings well before stipulated tenure had ended. The Shinde-Fadnavis (deputy CM) government had also ordered a stay and review of a slew of land allocations made by the MIDC. The body’s 20 senior officers serving at the rank of deputy secretary level were issued transfer orders. However, in protest of the decision, many officers approached MAT and got their transfer orders stayed.

According to sources, the officers who had received their marching orders included Additional Collector(s) Shivaji Patil, Vandana Suryavanshi, Upendra Tamore, who were all posted at MIDC as deputy chief executive officers. Another officer who was transferred was Deputy CEO (Environment) Dr Prashant Bhamre. Regional officers in MIDC’s divisional offices were also not spared and those who were served with transfer orders were Prashant Joshi, Sunil Bhutale (Thane), Rajendra Borkar (Mahape), Santosh Thite (Panvel), Balasaheb Khandekar (Pune), Uday Kisawe (Nashik), Chetan Girase (Aurangabad), Macchindra Sukate (Ratnagiri). The blanket order, issued in August, transferred general managers of Human Resource Development, land acquisition, public relations and development, Tushar Mathkar, Ravindra Pawar, Prashant Rumale, and Hemant Nikam. The planning GMs Karan Shinde, Bappasaheb Thorat, Santosh Bhise and Sandeep Kadam were also included.
