    Vigilance Commission orders registration of case against BDO

    : The State Vigilance Commission (SVC) today directed the State Vigilance Organisation (SVO) to register a case against a Block Development Officer (BDO) and other officials for allegedly extending undue benefits to some under the Indira Awaas Yojana (IAY).

     

    The commission has asked the SVO to register a case on a complaint against the then BDO, Tral, presently posted as the Assistant Director (Handicrafts), Ramban and other officials of the Rural Development Department for allegedly extending undue benefits to some by releasing Rs 1.30 lakh in their favour under IAY, in violation of norms and procedures fixed for the purpose, an SVC spokesman said.

     

    Earlier, taking cognizance of the complaint, the commission had sought a report from the Assistant Commissioner Development (ACD), Pulwama.

     

    The complainants had alleged large-scale irregularities committed by officers/officials of the Rural Development Department as regards disbursement of funds under the Centrally-sponsored IAY scheme in Tral block of Pulwama district, in connivance with the panch and sarpanch (village heads) of the block, the spokesman said.

     

    The report submitted by the ACD to the commission prima facie established the omissions and commissions on the part of the officials in distribution of funds earmarked for construction of houses under IAY, he added. (AGENCIES)
