Chitradurga still to get Deputy Commissioner

Firoz Rozindar

Amlan Aditya Biswas was transferred three weeks ago


Biswas declines to serve as in-charge Deputy Commissioner of Chitradurga

Additional Deputy Commissioner is currently in charge


Chitradurga: Even three weeks after the transfer of Deputy Commissioner Amlan Aditya Biswas to Bellary, the Government is yet to appoint a replacement.

In the absence of a Deputy Commissioner, the Government has placed A.S. Nirvanappa, Additional Deputy Commissioner, in charge of the district.

Mr. Biswas took charge of Chitradurga district in July 2007 and was transferred on February 8 this year. Interestingly, Mr. Biswas was transferred to Bellary on October 20 last year, but the order was revoked on November 20. After Mr. Biswas was transferred last month, the Government posted M.N. Ajay Nagabhushan as the Deputy Commissioner of Chitradurga.

However, Dr. Nagabhushan, who was posted as the Election Observer in Chitradurga during the last zilla panchayat elections, is presently serving as the Joint Director of the Commercial Taxes Department. Official sources said that the Department of Commercial Taxes was unwilling to relieve Dr. Nagabhushan, and hence, the chances of him coming to Chitradurga were slim.

Revenue and district in-charge Minister G. Karunakara Reddy, who was keen on retaining Mr. Biswas in Chitradurga at least till the end of March, has reportedly asked Mr. Biswas to serve as in-charge Deputy Commissioner of Chitradurga till a new one is appointed.

“Yes, he (Mr. Reddy) did ask me to take charge of Chitradurga, but I declined to accept the offer as it is difficult to manage two districts,” he told The Hindu over the phone.

Mr. Reddy could not be contacted as he is busy with the legislature session.
