31 MC employees came under scanner in past 3 years


CHANDIGARH: As many as 31 employees attached with various wings of the Chandigarh Municipal Corporation have been suspended and charge-sheeted in the past three years. The employees were slapped with departmental punishments for allegedly accepting bribes, procedural lapses, and violating the instructions of senior officials, among others.



The revelations came through queries filed under the Right to Information (RTI) Act by 'The Times of India'. The maximum number of tainted employees (15 out of 31) were attached with the office of the Medical Officer of Health, Chandigarh. They were slapped with punishments for allegedly delaying official works and coming under CBI investigations. Six employees of the Fire and Emergency Services were suspended and charge-sheeted for not attending to their duty with a professional commitment. Four other charge-sheeted and suspended employees were attached with the Electrical Wing of the Municipal Corporation.



A senior MC officer told ToI: "The departmental proceedings against almost all 31 employees are pending, and some of them were punished by stopping their annual increments. Four employees, including one class-II officer, have already challenged the decisions of the disciplinary authority." MC commissioner Vivek Pratap Singh said: "The fate of the tainted employees is reviewed from time to time by the officials concerned. I too review the status of suspended and charge-sheeted employees. The prime reason behind the pendency of departmental proceedings against the tainted employees is the filing of appeals by them."
