Keeping in view a large number of public representatives appealing for the extension of tenure of Joint Secretary Rigzin Samphel, the General Administration Department, UT Ladakh, has issued a press release stating that the Ladakh UT Administration has relieved the officer in compliance with the orders of the Appointments Committee of Cabinet, Government of India, as the officer has withdrawn his consent for an extension of deputation to the Union Territory of Ladakh citing personal reasons.
The officer had earlier applied for the extension of his deputation tenure in UT Ladakh. The UT Administration had also recommended the extension of Samphel’s tenure in Ladakh. Samphel’s application for extension of the deputation period was forwarded to the competent authority and was under process. However, he withdrew his consent for an extension.
The UT Administration acknowledged his services during his tenure in Ladakh and wished him for his future endeavours.
Samphel was on deputation to Ladakh UT from his parent cadre of Uttar Pradesh.
