Staff Correspondent

The government has appointed new deputy commissioners (DCs) to 34 districts and transferred four others in a reshuffle in the local administration ahead of the national polls.

The establishment ministry said in a statement it issued orders on the grassroots administrative overhaul on Thursday.
 
The government transferred the incumbent DCs of the 34 districts to different ministries and departments as deputy secretary.
 
The new DCs were picked from a 'fit list', the ministry said.
 
The rearrangement came only three days after senior bureaucrats had asked the chief adviser at a meeting on Aug 18 to immediately reshuffle the local administration to help officials prepare for the general elections.
 
The government has formed a committee headed by the additional secretary at the Cabinet Division to deal with the reshuffle at the grassroots administration.
