KARWAR: The Karnataka State Human Rights Commission (KSHRC) has directed the state government to allow deputy commissioners to serve in a particular district for at least two years, and not to transfer them frequently.

Disposing of a long-pending petition filed by Karwar-based Janashakti Vedike president  Madhav Naik, the interim president of the KSHRC, Meera Saxena, directed the chief secretary of the state to allow deputy commissioners to work at a place for at least two years in the interest of the people of the district concerned.

Naik had filed a petition before the KSHRC on November 2, 2010, questioning the sudden transfer of the then Uttara Kannada deputy commissioner K Amaranarayana. In the petition, he alleged that 10 DCs had been transferred out of the district in three years.
