VIJAYAWADA: In a massive rejig of the engineering staff, the Water Resources department transferred and gave posting to 105 chief engineers, executive engineers, deputy superintending engineers and other cadres.

With the finance department giving its concurrence, the department issued orders of transfers of engineers.
