Decisions regarding transfers, vigilance and other ancillary matters would be taken by majority vote of the committee members and the same would be forwarded to the Lieutenant Governor for final decision. In the event of a difference of opinion, the decision of the Lieutenant Governor shall be final.
The Center has issued an order notifying the rules for the Government of the National Capital Territory of Delhi (GNCTD) regarding “transfer assignment, vigilance and other incidental matters”, effectively placing control of the services with Lt. -governor, days after the Supreme Court granted Delhi’s elected government.
The order paves the way for the creation of the National Capital Civil Service Authority, which will be responsible for managing the transfer and disciplinary procedures concerning Group A officers of the DANICS cadre (Delhi, Andaman and Nicobar Islands Civil Service).
The National Capital Civil Service Authority will be headed by the Chief Minister of Delhi and will include the Chief Secretary and Home Secretary of the Delhi Government.
