890 officials overstay deputation period

Under the Karnataka Civil Service rules, the maximum period that an official from another department can work with the Palike is five years.

The KCS rules 5/3 and 419/b/13 clearly states that the minimum deputation period is three years and the maximum five years.

Of the 890 officials, as many as 270 have completed five years and are still working with the Palike.

In addition, close to 10 officials who have been drawing salary from the Palike have also been deputed to other departments.

This means that they are drawing salary from both the BBMP as well as from their parent organisation.

An investigation by Deccan Herald revealed that of the 67 officials deputed from department of family welfare, 49 have completed five years and 18 have completed three years.

Orders issued

Similarly, 33 officials from Department of Health have completed five years, 38 have completed 10 years and eight of them have completed 20 years.

Earlier this year, the BBMP Deputy Commissioner had issued orders to send this officials back to their parent department. However, no action has been taken yet.
