SENIOR BABU STILL UNDERTAKING ‘WORK FROM HOME’ AS DoP LEAVES HIM WITHOUT OFFICE!
Jaipur: Let us regale an interesting story about senior IAS Pritam B Yashwant whom the state government has accorded the responsibility of Commissioner, Departmental Enquiries. Although he is at an important position, yet, neither does he have a room in the state secretariat nor does he have an office set-up. In fact, from November 1 onwards, he is either working from home, or working from the office of some other senior official. This is because in December 2020, he was transferred to his current position from the position of Secretary, GAD. In October 2021, he went on a year long leave and his room was thereafter allotted to some other officer. A year later when he returned, he joined his old post on November 1 and although DoP issued a fresh order and allotted him work, he was not allotted a new room to operate his office from.
According to the Registrar of DoP, who allotted the rooms, the DoP has not received any requisition from Pritam B Yashwant to allot him a room. Thus the question now is as to where is the confusion and why is there any confusion? Knowledgeable sources reveal that it is a rare feat that an officer joins on the same post after returning from a year long leave. It may be a rare feat to achieve but in Secretariat, where rooms are scarce, it is almost next to impossible that an unoccupied room remains so for a whole year! It now remains to be seen when Yashwant gets a room allotted!
