Call it a repercussion of state bifurcation or an administrative procedural delay, a woman bureaucrat in Hyderabad has been heading a department holding a non-existent post for over three months and that too without salary. The case of NR Visalatchy, a 2002-batch Indian Postal Services (IPoS) officer, is peculiar. She was appointed as the first full-time director of Telangana state’s Department of Archaeology and Museums (DAM) in October 2015. The postal directorate had issued an order sending Visalatchy, who was the Director Postal Services (DPS) is Visakhapatnam to Telangana on October 14 last year. B Venkatesham, secretary to Government of Telangana Youth Advancement, Tourism & Culture department, said that the post of head of the department of DAM had gone to the residual Andhra Pradesh state at the time of bifurcation.
