UPSC told to put quit letter on hold

The State government, which forwarded the resignation letter of ADGP Ravindranath to the Centre, had recommended the Union Public Service Commission to accept it.

However, with the ADGP stating that he has decided to withdraw his resignation, the file moved to the Centre has been put on hold.

Chief Secretary Kaushik Mukherjee, on Thursday, said that the government, earlier in the week, had recommended the Centre to accept the resignation and relieve Ravindranath from his duties.

This, it is said, was in accordance with the ‘wishes’ of the IPS officer.

“But now that he has withdrawn his resignation, we will have to forward a letter to the Centre intimating them that the ADGP has decided to continue in service in the Karnataka cadre. But first, Ravindranath has to forward a letter, stating that he intends to stay,” Mukherjee said.

The IPS officer has to submit a letter, stating that he has decided to withdraw his resignation, to the DG&IGP (the officer has since given the letter to the DG&IGP).

The latter will then forward the same to the Department of Personnel and Administrative Reforms. The DPAR will send it to the chief secretary for his assent.

The letter will then be dispatched to UPSC, for rejecting the resignation.

Meanwhile, the transfer order of the ADGP still remains valid, pending the Centre’s decision to reject his resignation letter.

The State is likely to ask Ravindranath to report in Dharwad at the earliest.
