The move comes in the wake of a recent EC direction to State governments insisting transfer of IAS and IPS officers serving for more than three years in a district. A few IPS transfers are also expected, Secretariat sources said.
The order signed by Chief Secretary Girija Vaidyanathan posted Radhakrishnan to head the State Transport Department as its Principal Secretary. Radhakrishnan has served as the longest health secretary for six years. He drew flak over the recent HIV infected blood transfusion case.
Commissioner of Municipal Administration, G Prakash, will be the new Chennai Corporation Commissioner and Karthikeyan will head the Municipal Administration. Commissioner of Indian medicine Beela Rajesh is the new Health Secretary. Coimbatore Collector TN Hariharan and Coimbatore Municipal Commissioner and K Vijayakarthikeyan were also transferred.
