In a major bureaucratic reshuffle in Haryana, the Manohar Lal Khattar government shifted 13 IAS officers on 17th April including the 1991 batch IAS officer Ashok Khemka, who was transferred for the 56th time.
In his 30-year career, Mr Khemka in his 56th transfer has been given additional charge of the Printing and Stationery Department.
The senior IAS officer was last shifted as additional chief secretary Archives Department in January, 2023.
He was last removed after he wrote to Haryana Chief Secretary Sarvesh Kaushal, indicating that he didn’t have enough work following the merger of his Science and Technology Department into the Higher Education Department.
Last year in August when Khemka was posted as principal secretary, Department of Archaeology and Museum Haryana, he moved Punjab High Court seeking empanelment at the Centre under its staffing scheme.
Khemka is known to expose corruption in the various departments he was posted in. He is a whistleblower of several scams that took place in Haryana, including the Vadra DLF land grab scam, Sonepat-Kharkhoda IMT land scam case, and Garhi Sampla Uddar Gagan land scam.
He is Haryana’s second-most transferred bureaucrat after another retired IAS officer, Pradeep Kasni, who was transferred 71 times in 35 years.
Meanwhile, according to the state personnel department notification, IAS officer Rajesh Khullar has been shifted as financial commissioner, Revenue and Disaster Management and Consolidation Departments.
