SC notice to Centre/States on civil services board



SC notice to Centre/States on civil services board

New Delhi, Mar 4 (PTI) The Supreme Court today issued notices to the Centre, all states/UTs on a PIL for setting up of high-powered statutory Civil Services Boards to decide transfers/postings of civil servants to rid the bureaucracy of political interference, corruption and inaction.

A bench of justices Dalveer Bhandari and Deepak Verma sought response from the Union Cabinet Secretary and respective Chief Secretaries on the petition jointly filed by 83 former bureaucrats through counsel Menaka Guruswamy.

"There is an urgent need to make the civil servants accountable, sensitive and responsive. If this is achieved, there will be across-the-spectrum benefits. At present, the system of transfers, postings, promotions, disciplinary action and other personnel matters pertaining to the higher civil services are ad-hoc and non-transparent.
