BANGALORE: IAS officer Rashmi V, who was allegedly sent on leave by the State government, has been given a posting after four months.  The government issued an order on Saturday posting Rashmi to Administrative Training Institute (ATI) Mysore.

The order states: “Rashmi V Mahesh, Secretary to Government, Health and Family Welfare Department (Medical Education), presently on child care leave, is posted with immediate effect and until further orders as Director General, AIT, Mysore... relieving M V Jayanthi, IAS of additional charge.” When contacted, Rashmi told Express: “I have no information about the posting yet.” Sources close to her said she has no plans to cancel her leave.

A senior IAS official who worked as Director General, ATI, Mysore told Express, “There is nothing much to do in AIT....It is nothing but a teacher’s job.”
