Corporation officials, who failed to complete works allotted to them within the set deadlines, might be reallocated by the GHMC commissioner.
Immediately after the completion of CoP-11, the GHMC commissioner will be cracking the whip against the officials whose laxity has brought disrepute to the Corporation.
Even as the international conference was underway, there was reallocation of duties to the additional commissioners. According to sources, the process of internal transfer would resume on a larger scale as soon as the CoP-11 comes to an end. Those who are competent will be given important responsibilities and those who failed to comply with the directives of the GHMC commissioner and only worked to save their positions will face the music, it is learnt.
Those engineers who failed to complete the tender process worth several crores within the set deadline may have to go back to their original department from which they had been drafted.
And, they will go back with a tag of inefficiency taped to their lapels. “Change is what the GHMC commissioner is considering,” says an official. Streamlining the responsibilities of the additional commissioners would be a priority, he said.
Sanitation, electrical and works and the zonal commissioners and circle levels (deputy municipal commissioners) would be under the scanner. With the prevailing confusion among the public and even inside the GHMC about the responsibilities of the additional commissioners, it is believed that two important wings will be allotted to each additional commissioner.
There were instances before the CoP-11 where officials and engineers failed to turn up even after the commissioner arrived on the spot.
“Mason’s are better,” was the comment of the GHMC commissioner while inspecting some works. Little wonder a foreign delegate fell in to a ditch and broke his leg. Accountability is part of the job, he was heard commenting.
