The Rajasthan government has transferred some IAS officers, including Tina Dabi, CEO, Zilla Parishad cum Additional District Program Coordinator, EGS and Chief Project Officer, Sriganganagar as Joint Secretary, Finance (Tax) Department. 

Tina Dabi was transferred on 19 November but due to the code of conduct and election process from the Election Commission, the transfer was banned.

The two had filed for divorce with mutual consent in a family court in Jaipur and said that they can no longer live together.

Sharing a photo of herself from new office, Tina Dabi wrote, “Joined as Joint Secretary Finance (Tax) to Govt of Rajasthan today.”

People were searching Google to find out why Tina and Athar finally decided to divorce. A lot of research was being done about this, not only in the country but also abroad. Especially in Muslim countries, the most search was being done about it. This was the most searched in Kashmir in the country, from where Athar belongs to.

Tina celebrated her new success with a cryptic note as she wrote, “The darkest nights produce the brightest stars.”
