EC sources said the norm of removing officers who had held the same post for over four years had been stringently followed in the districts, but not in the case of these officers posted in Kolkata. Of these assembly segments, Kolkata Port and Ballygunge will vote on April 26, and the others on April 29 — phase seven and eight of the eight-phase Bengal polls.
