• Maximum tenure of central Gov. employee in Leh, Ladakh

(i)	Sir, At present I am working in one of the Labs of DRDO in India. Recently i was transfered to Leh inspite of the fact that i have already served in high altitude region (Leh, Ladakh) for 2 years. I was directed by my head that I may have to work there for whole life. 

Hence, I would like to know that whether I am bound by any govt. rules that i must work in these areas (Ladakh, north east) as per the need.
