Whistleblower Sanjiv gets transfer after 3 year wait

The Centre has finally decided to shift whistleblower officer Sanjiv Chaturvedi from Haryana cadre to Uttarakhand, after three years of dilly-dallying on his plea on the ground that he was facing hardship for his fight against corruption.

The Appointments Committee of Cabinet (ACC) headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has cleared the application of Chaturvedi, a 2002-batch Indian Forest Service officer, sources said on Monday.

The decision came following the relief provided to Chaturvedi, who was recently selected for Magsaysay award, by the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) on his plea against the ACC order to get fresh no-objection certificate for his cadre change from both Haryana and Uttarakhand governments.
