In a first-of-its-kind decision aimed at bringing transparency in government transfers, the BJP-JJP government has decided to replicate its flagship online transfer policy in the departments employing contractual employees.

On the pattern of regular employees, the contractual staff employed under Part II of the Outsourcing Policy will be brought under the purview of the online transfer policy.

“Thee-transfer policy will be applicable to the contractual staff working under Part II of the Outsourcing Policy in departments/boards/corporations where the cadre strength of the post on which they were working was at least 80,” a senior officer told The Tribune.

The contractual employees under Part II of the Outsourcing Policy are employed “in emergent cases involving public interest where sanctioned vacant posts of Group C and D categories exist”. The persons under this policy can be engaged by sending a requisition to the job exchange and by advertisement purely on contractual basis, initially for a period not exceeding a year or till the regular selected candidates are appointed.

Notably, due to staff crunch, thousands of contractual staff were working with different state departments under the Part II of the Outsourcing Policy. Since they were not regular, they tend to develop vested interests while their posting at the same place for a long time, the officer added.
