MAMMOTH IAS TRANSFER LIST SURPRISES ALL IN RAJASTHAN, INCLUDING BUREAUCRACY!

The entire bureaucracy is pleasantly surprised by the appointment of Mahesh Chandra Sharma as Secretary LSG, Meghraj Singh as Registrar Cooperatives, Bharti Dixit as Ajmer Collector, and Sandesh Nayak as MD, RSMM. Similarly, discussions are also happening on the shifting of Vishram Meena as Commissioner, Jaipur Municipal Corporation, Jitendra Soni as Alwar Collector, Shakti Singh Rathore as MD-RFC, Nakate S Madan from MD, RIICO, and Anshdeep as Collector Ajmer.

MAHESH C SHARMA
Mahesh Chandra Sharma is a promotee IAS from RAS and it has happened for the first time that the reins of the post of Secretary, LSG have been handed to a promotee officer. He has merely served as Collector of Bundi district once for a period of 8 months and has served as SA to BJP government ministers twice. He has left several claimants behind for this post.

MEGHRAJ SINGH RATNU
Even the responsibility of Registrar Cooperatives has been handed to a promotee IAS — Meghraj Singh Ratnu — while keeping at bay several young bureaucrats. For the past 10 months, he had an additional charge of the position which has now been converted to a permanent position. Ratnu enjoys the reputation of a low-profile and a result oriented officer.

BHARTI DIXIT
Bharti Dixit has been given a major jump and appointed as Collector of Ajmer. This is his second appointment as Collector. Now she is just ‘next door’ to her husband Ashish Modi ( Collector-Bhilwara).

SANDESH NAYAK
Sandesh Nayak has now become a ‘power centre’ after being given the additional charge of MD of RSMM in addition to his appointment as Director, Mines. Those in the know-how of bureaucracy are terming it as illogical and wrong. Notably, this is the sixth change of MD, RSMM in the current government.

VISHRAM MEENA
Vishram Meena has ‘links’ till higher-ups in the current dispensation and he was thus posted on the ‘high seat’ in the Jaipur Municipal Corporation. However, he had to face the brunt of Ram Prasad suicide. While serving as Alwar Collector, he had cracked whip against land-mafia, but in turn, he had to lose his position. He has returned to the same NHM as Mission Director from where, ten months back, he left for the Alwar Collectorate. Soni could have spent more time in the field, having served as Collector in four districts.

SHAKTI SINGH RATHORE
As MD of RFC, Shakti Singh Rathore had given good results in the past two years and keeping in mind his capabilities, he could have been given a better role in Devasthan or he could have been appointed as Collector of any district.

NAKATE S MADAN
Nakate S Madan, who, in the past, has served as Collector of Barmer, Sri Ganganagar, Bhilwara and Alwar, has also served as ED in RIICO and was handling the responsibility of MD proficiently. It is said that he had the faith and trust of his ‘boss’ and thus his transfer has become a puzzle.

ANSHDEEP
Meanwhile, word around Anshdeep - serving as Ajmer Collector till now - is that he had miffed several local politicians with his behaviour and work culture.

OTHER TRANSFERS
The transfers of Karan Singh, Pratibha Singh, Harimohan Meena, Ghanshyam and MP Meena was due for a long time. Moreover, bureaucratic circles are trying to find the logic behind bringing Rajesh Kumar Meena (IRS) and Prateek Jhajharia (Postal Service) in the State government. Hemant Gera, Praveen Gupta and Krishna Kunal are posted on the same chair for a long time and it was believed that they would be changed now, but they have been left untouched. Word is that CS Usha Sharma would retire on June 30 and with the appointment of new CS, another IAS transfer list would be released.
