The vacation Bench of the High Court stayed the transfer of the commissioner of Bellary Urban Development Authority, Kasi Nafeeza, on Thursday.

A division Bench comprising Justice H N Nagmohan Das and Justice Indrakala passed the order on her petition, challenging her transfer order by the State government, and alleging that her transfer was illegal as the state did not follow rules.

Nafeeza submitted that she was appointed as the commissioner of the Bellary Urban Development Authority on February 2, 2013, but on September 11, she was transferred to the Karnataka Urban Infrastructure Development and Finance Corporation Limited (KUIDFCL). She challenged the same before the Karnataka Administration Tribunal (KAT), but KAT upheld the state government’s order, following the submission of the state government that she was not efficient in her duties.

She further submitted that according to the rules, any KAS officer should not be transferred from one position to another, until he/she completes two years in one place.
