PULWAMA — Baseer-Ul-Haq Chaudhary (IAS) on Thursday assumed the charge as Deputy Commissioner Pulwama in the southern district of Kashmir valley.
Immediately before having a formal introductory meeting with the officers, Baseer-Ul-Haq inspected various units of the Administrative Complex and impressed upon the officers and officials to work with ‘added dedication’ and ‘zeal’ to fulfil the aspirations of the people.
Besides, he also urged for ‘accessible’ and responsive administration, and called effective grievance redressal a priority.
Baseer-Ul-Haq Chaudhary earlier served as Deputy Commissioner, Kargil. He was later recalled from the Union Territory of Ladakh and posted in Jammu and Kashmir. Mr Chaudhary was awaiting orders of adjustment in the General Administration Department.
On Tuesday (March 16), the Jammu and Kashmir administration ordered a major reshuffle in administration, transferring and posting at least 34 officers with immediate effect. As a consequence, Baseer-Ul-Haq was posted as Deputy Commissioner, Pulwama.
