In a major reshuffle, the Municipal Commissioner Rajesh Narvekar transferred 159 officials from the accounts department to the property tax department to streamline the work and prevent any chances of lethargy in the execution of work. Last week, around 24 officials who were in the same department for more than 3 years were transferred.

The civic chief is paying special attention to the reputation of Navi Mumbai as it is growing at the national and international levels. In order to provide quality services to the citizens and visitors, the civic Narvekar is closely watching the work of various departments and taking the decision, said an administrative official of NMMC.
