New DC again !

September 29, 2020
  • Rohini Sindhuri visits Chamundi Hill before assuming office as Mysuru DC
  • B. Sharat transferred without posting after serving for a month as DC

Mysore/Mysuru: A day after she was posted as Mysuru Deputy Commissioner (DC), Rohini Sindhuri Dasari, a Karnataka cadre IAS Officer of 2009 batch, took charge at the Deputy Commissioner’s Office on Hunsur Road here this morning.

She replaces B. Sharat, who had assumed charge as Mysuru DC on Aug. 29, 2020. Now Sharat has been transferred without posting.

A native of Andhra Pradesh, Rohini is the second new DC for Mysuru in just over a month. Earlier, DC Abhiram G. Sankar, who was appointed in 2018, was transferred as Director of Administrative Training Institute (ATI), Mysuru, on Aug. 28, 2020.

Speaking to press persons after assuming charge this morning, Rohini Sindhuri said that she came to Mysuru at about 8.30 am today and drove straight to Chamundeshwari Temple atop Chamundi Hill and sought the blessings of the deity. 

Later she visited Tripura Sundariamma Temple at Uttanahalli on the outskirts of the city and offered prayers to the deity.

Noting that she was not new to Mysuru as she had undergone training at the ATI on Lalitha Mahal Road here in her early days of her career, Rohini said that there were two immediate challenges before her — one is tackling COVID-19 that is spreading fast in Mysuru district and the second is conduct of Dasara amid COVID crisis, which is very much round the corner.

Highlighting her priorities for checking the spread of the deadly contagion, Rohini Sindhuri said that preference must be given for a wider testing involving a larger population as Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) is crucial for early detection of the virus. 

Calling for full co-operation of the people, officials and other stake-holders for checking the spread of the virus, she said that people volunteering for tests is vital for preventing the pandemic and also bringing down the mortality rate.

Reiterating that holding Dasara amid the COVID-19 contagion holds a real challenge for her, she observed that public co-operation was very crucial for solving any issues that are haunting the district.

Rohini Sindhuri, who was until now serving as Commissioner for Religious and Charitable Endowments in Bengaluru, said that she has the experience of serving in Mysuru region as she was the DC of Hassan and ZP CEO in Mandya earlier.

Additional DC B.S. Manjunathaswamy, Assistant Commissioner Venkataraju and other officials were present.

    Some thing wrong with the state Govt. They are resorting to bad governance. No DC is in long term in Mysuru. The shortest being 1 month. If DC are changed periodically, how can we expect development? Aya Ram, Gaya Ram will not help anyone. We can see lethargy in Govt. offices and no one follows the DC rule, as they know DC will be changed. BSY wake up man, you are changing DC, Police commissioners periodically, how would you feel if you are changed overnight????

    Something has always been wrong with the state government , since the days of Kengal. When Karnataka Integration happened during the creation of linguistic states, I remember, Mysuru getting the IAS officers from North Karnataka, thanks to the ministers like Veerendra Patil, from there ( who became CM),. These Officers from places like Bijapur and Belgaum, enjoying their Mysuru and Bengaluru transfers, from their arid deserts,, needed old Mysorean assistants to translate what they spoke in Kannada! The demand from officers in those new regions to posting in Mysuru and Begaluru was so great that there were changes every few months to accommodate them!
    Since the days when the capital was shifted from Mysuru to Bengaluru by Kengal, Mysuru got the raw deal. Mysore MLAs, with the exception of Azeez Sait , have been useless to the core.
