The Election Commission, after having ordered the transfer of 3 district magistrates in Bihar, is likely to transfer nearly half a dozen more district magistrates for their unsatisfactory performance with regard to election related work.

Sources in the State Election Department said the Election Commission was unhappy with some District Magistrates for the tardy progress in preparation of electoral photo identity cards and execution of non bailable warrants of arrest against criminals.

"The Election Commission has expressed its displeasure over the working style of some more district magistrates," officials said on Saturday.

According to sources, district magistrates, including those of Siwan, Gopalganj, and Buxar, are in the firing line of the Election Commission.
