AHMEDABAD: The Gujarat high court has sought a reply from the state government, the urban development department and the housing commissioner over a petition filed by civil engineers. The engineers have claimed in their plea that they were recruited in the Gujarat Housing Board but were later deputed as chief officers across the state.

These engineers, who have been serving as chief officers for the last one decade because the Housing Board had been defunct from 2001, have demanded repatriation to the Board because the state government once again has big plans for it.

After the state government came up with projects worth around Rs 2,000 crore for the Board, it also began the process of recruiting engineers for different posts in the Board. Moreover, the government has also started recruitment for the post of chief officers in various municipalities.

The 26 engineers, who are on deputation, have urged the court to stop the government from recruiting chief officers for municipalities and engineers for the Board. They have argued that instead of repatriating senior and experienced civil engineers appointed between 1984 and 1992 by the board, recruitment of new engineers would increase the financial burden on the Board. HC has kept further hearing on February 18. By then, authorities have been asked to submit their replies.
