Officers working in the BBMP’s Town Planning Department also have to work in the Solid Waste Management (SWM)Department, Commissioner M Lakshminarayana said.

Replying to a question on excess staff in the department at the BBMP Council on Monday, he said, “From now onwards, those who come from outside to the department have to work between 7 am to 11 am everyday at the SWM Department and should take care of garbage clearance of one ward during that time. They should also report to the chief engineers concerned everyday. After 11 am, they should work for the Town Planning Department. They have to maintain attendance register at both the departments,” he said.

This will instill fear among the officers and they wouldn’t wish to come to the department on deputation, Lakshminarayana observed. 

Mayor B S Sathyanarayana told the Standing Committee on Administrative Reforms to get the list of officials working on deputation in various departments in the civic body, especially in the Town Planning Department, within a week. “We can depute officials wherever they  are required. We don’t want officers who just use rubber stamp to sign. We want officials to work in the field too,” he said.
