Transferring of the newly promoted land service officials has been undertaken by the lottery to ensure transparency and accountability in the land sector by preventing lobbying trade and related corruption. Said Land Minister Saifuzzaman Chowdhury, MP.
Land Minister said these in the inauguration ceremony of determining the post-promotion transferring of the newly promoted 548 Kanungos /Sub Assistant Settlement Officers of the Management and Settlement department under the Ministry of Land from the Surveyor or equivalent post by lottery at the conference hall of the ministry of land in the secretariat today Wednesday. Land Secretary Md. Muksodur Rahman Patwary was present at the event.
The land minister also said that I asked for transferring the newly promoted officials with this process after getting complaints from some places. We want to do something good so that there will be unquestionable transparency in the process of posting, transferring and other official activities. Sometimes, lobby comes from such places we get embarrassed. I have given this directive to the Secretary for this reason.
Saifuzzaman Chowdhury expressed his hope that a precedent has been set up today. A standard is created today. We want to develop a system. Those who have been sentenced for departmental charges were not considered for promotion – he said.
“We are creating new recruitment rules. According to this rule, about 7000 new land officers of various positions will be appointed at the field level. Besides, we are also planning to appoint Non-Cadre Kanungos through PSC”. Saifuzzaman Chowdhury said while responding to a question of the journalists.
