Nagpur, Aug 2 (PTI) Staffers in prisons in Maharashtra will not be transferred during the current financial year in view of the directives issued by the Bombay high court.
"As far as...staff deployed in the correctional homes/temporary prisons shall be posted in the present place of posting and they will not be rotated," Additional Director General of Police (ADG), Prisons, Sunil Ramanand, stated in a circular.
No transfers would be carried out in the department in view of the orders of the HC, it said on Sunday.
