Press Trust of India  |  Hyderabad 

An IAS officer currently working as director of oriental manuscripts library and research institute has sought voluntary retirement as he has "no work" in the present department.

The 2006 IAS officer, A Murali, is due to retire in 10 months.

"I request the Government to permit me to go for voluntary retirement with effect from August 31, 2019," he said in a letter to the Telangana Chief Secretary.

"I am a hard worker and I want do something after I come out of the service as I cant do anything here now. Everyday I am coming to office, sitting in the chair and going...I dont have much work to do in this department.

I am idle for the past one and half year.After retirement I will work for social causes," Murali told reporters.

Murali had earlier worked as Collector of Jayashankar-Bhupalpally district.

He is the second senior All India Services official who has claimed that they had no work in their present posting.

Recently, VK Singh, a senior IPS officer posted as Commissioner, Printing, Stationery and Stores Purchase, had said he wanted to undertake a social awareness campaign including 'Swachhta Abhiyan' as there is apparently "no work" in his present post.

"As there is almost nil work in this charge and I can't sit idle, I want to do that I always cherish--launching a social movement to promote literacy, make a crime-free society, Haritha Haram, 'Swachhta Abhiyan', good governance, a corruption-free state and a vibrant democracy," Singh had said.
