Sub: - Misusing of quasi-judicial powers and ordering recovery against the innocent officials who are not directly responsible – case of Erode division in Tamilnadu circle
A kind attention is invited to the discussions we had on the charter of strike demands and also in the Departmental Council JCM about the misuse of quasi-judicial powers by the divisional heads and ordering huge recoveries against the innocent officials who are not directly responsible for the loss sustained by the department and made them scape goats leaving the main and co offenders as scat free in case of officers involved. It has been asked by the Secretary himself to cite some instances about the misuse of disciplinary powers in the case of contributory negligence factors.
The Copy of the Tamilnadu Circle Union letter dated 27.2.2019 about the fraud taken place at Erode division in Tamilnadu circle and the role of the divisional heads and sub divisional heads, and the present action of the divisional administration to fix the innocent officials as scape goats which is self-explanatory and exhaustive is enclosed herewith for your kind intervention and immediate action.
It is dismayed to note that there was no action taken to confiscate the movable and immovable properties from the main offender and also the co offenders who admitted their guilty in the CBI enquiry. The officers who are responsible have not been brought as the co offenders in the fraud case and action is being initiated against the innocent and hardworking officials on flimsy and fabricated reasons. The above case is clear example for misusing the powers and also misusing the quasi-judicial power vested with the divisional head. The regional administration was appraised all these facts in 2017 itself but there was no action and they are being responsible for the delay in confiscating the properties from the main and co offenders.
It is therefore requested to kindly cause immediate action to stop the action against the innocent officials and proceed to recover the amount from the main and co offenders immediately.
A Line in reply about the action taken is highly solicited,
DA: As above
