Kundapur: Gayatri Nayak, the tahsildar of this taluk, had recently received an order transferring her to Gokak taluk in Belagavi district. But her successor had not been announced.
Since the presence of a tahsildar is indispensable during the forthcoming local body elections, her transfer has been withdrawn for the time being, according to sources in the district administration.
It is the second time that she got transferred. On an previous occasion also, she was transferred to Udupi as tahsildar, but it was cancelled at the eleventh hour.
