DySP Anupama of Kudligi in Bellary district, Karnartaka got transferred twice in two days for not answering politician’s call. The call had reportedly come from an unknown number which Ms Anupama had duly not answered. The transfer followed a veiled warning on “consequences”.

Transfer of bureaucrats is a regular feature in the Indian administration scene and Ms Anupama has just entered the long list of transferred people.  The DGP however has denied the incident while the BJP have condemned it.

Noticeable Transfers In The Past
Ashok Khemka, an Indian Administrative Service officer, has been transferred at least 45 times in his 23-year-old career.

Durga Shakti Nagpal, who tried to stop illegal sand mining during her tenure as a bureaucrat in Gautam Budh Nagar was suspended by the Uttar Pradesh government.

Call For Reforms
The arbitrary transfers of bureaucrats have raised the tone for call for reforms. Stability of tenure, insulation from interference by political masters are some of the reasons for an urgent need for administrative reform In 2012 Hong Kong-based Political & Economic Risk Consultancy Ltd described India as a “bureaucratic nightmare” among 12 Asian countries it covered.

Indian bureaucracy was, in fact, ranked 9.21 on a scale of 10, with 10 being the worst. It went on to cite inertia and corruption as some of the principal factors that ail Indian bureaucracy. Some bureaucrats admit that political patronage, and corruption have tainted their image, perhaps beyond repair.

The Logical Indian condemns the arbitrary transfer of Ms Anupama and all the previous transfers of honest officers. We appeal to the government to get the reforms on track that will give security of tenure to the bureaucrat. It is high time we change the face of bureaucracy.
