Endless wait

Endless wait -Two senior IAS officers in Govt of India and one from UT cadre are yet to get their next posting even as their successors have been appointed. According to sources, Sanjay Kumar Singh, a 1987-batch IAS officer of the Madhya Pradesh cadre was replaced by Ansuli Arya, a 1989-batch IAS officer at the Universal Services Obligation Fund (USOF), but he is yet to be post for his next job. Similarly, Jaishree Mukherjee, a 1986-batch officer of the Maharashtra cadre was shifted in December from I&B Ministry following the appointment of Atul Kumar Tiwary by downgrading the post from Assistant Secretary to Joint Secretary. She too is still awaiting her new posting. Further, say sources, last December former Goa Chief Secretary Dharmendra Sharma had proceeded on leave following the appointment of Parimal Rai as his successor. The MHA being the cadre controlling authority of UT cadre officers and Lt Governor as key to such placement his further posting too depends on NaMo administration. It is rare to put such senior officers under an inordinately long wait. What is worrying officers is not only about career but where to draw their salary once relieved from previous department/ministry and waiting to join another.
