Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs T.B. Jayachandra on Friday said the State government would formulate a transfer policy for all departments.

His statement comes a day after the Supreme Court said bureaucrats should not act on verbal orders given by politicians and suggested a fixed tenure for them.

After participating in the Rajyotsava programme at the Mahatma Gandhi Stadium here, Mr. Jayachandra, who is the district in-charge Minister, said the State government had a transfer policy for the Police Department. Similarly, the government would formulate a transfer policy for all departments, he said.

The Minister said a modern slaughter house would be built on 20 acres of land at an estimated cost of Rs. 20 crore near Chennenahalli in Sira taluk of Tumkur district.

At the programme, Mr. Jayachandra said he had started getting laws related to women and children published in Kannada. He said a HAL unit would be established in Tumkur district and it was the responsibility of the district administration to provide land for it.

G.S. Basavaraju, MP, was among the few people’s representatives who participated in the programme.
