Businessmen, Self-proclaimed Godmen Were Not Happy With An IAS Officer. Now, Home Ministry Transferred Him To Mizoram From Delhi
Amjad Tak was in the process of retrieving around 2,600 bighas of land in many villages in Delhi.
Amjad Tak, the South Delhi District Magistrate has reportedly been transferred to Mizoram. The Home Ministry ordered the controversial transfer on Tuesday, December 4. Noteworthy, many self-proclaimed godmen, politicians and industrialists were not happy with his work.
Reportedly, Tak was in the process of retrieving around 2,600 bighas of land in many villages, including Mehrauli, Asola, Bhatti, Dera Mandi, Ayanagar and Tughalaqabad through anti-encroachment drives. These lands are owned by businessmen, self-proclaimed godmen, religious sects and even politicians.
TOI reported that Tak directed action against encroachments in Asola, Shahurpur and Dera Mandi villages, with the anti-encroachment drives organised in December. However, on December 4, Tak received the transfer order issued by MHA.
The ministry stated: “With the approval of the competent authority, Amjad Tak IAS (AGMUT 2005) has been transferred to Mizoram from Delhi and S B Shashank IAS (AGMUT 2007) has been transferred from Mizoram to Delhi.”
The transfer order is reportedly controversial as it was on an individual basis, instead of the customary transferring post a meeting of the joint cadre authority. DMs hold the position for three years. Tak, a 2005-batch Arunachal Pradesh, Goa, Mizoram and Union Territories (AGMUT) cadre IAS officer, had been posted only for two years, since taking over in October 2016.
