- Sanjeevani to those who disturb nutritional diet
- Department was able to issue charge sheet within 90 days
During the lockdown, two officers suspended on charges of nutritional food disturbances were reinstated only because the Women and Child Development Department was not able to issue a charge sheet (charge sheet) to them within 90 days of suspension.
The big reason behind this was that before issuing the charge sheet, the file was sent to the department’s minister Imrati Devi for approval, which returned after 50 days. By then 90 days had passed. The file was sent to the minister on 29 October, which returned on 18 December.
Now the department is saying that fresh action can be taken. Explain that Khandwa’s District Program Officer Anshubala Christ and Khalwa’s Project Officer Himani Rathore were suspended on 16 September.
The day the file was returned, the same day the chargesheet sent from Speed Post
After the approval of Imrati Devi, the file of the charge sheet returned to the department on 18 December. Suspended officers were reinstated on the same day. As soon as it was found in the Principal Secretary’s Office, the Deputy Secretary and IAS officer Jagdish Chandra Jatia hurriedly sent the charge sheet not only from the speed post on December 18, but Khandwa Collector Anay Dwivedi was asked to serve it.
Was therefore suspended
In the lockdown, instructions were given that ready-to-eat nutritious food should be provided to the beneficiaries of the Anganwadi center to protect children from 6 months to 6 years from malnutrition, pregnant and nursing mothers and adolescent girls from malnutrition during corona. .
Instructions were given to give 200 kg to children and one and a half kg to expectant and lactating mothers. Investigation revealed that 200 to 300 grams of nutritious food was given in Baldi-Killod, Harsud and Khalwa in Khandwa district. Distribution data was also not kept. Fraud is suspected. On this basis, Anshubala Christ and Himani Rathore were suspended.
This is the rule
The suspension ends automatically if the charge sheet is not issued in 90 days after suspension under Rule 9 (5) of MP Civil Service (Classification Control and Appeal) Rules, 1966. Officers are reinstated.
Minister Bali- CM had the file; Principal Secretary said – had sent the minister
In this case, when the file returned from the minister, it had been 92 days. When asked about this, Imrati said that this file should not be with me, but with the Chief Minister. I am not looking into this matter. Department officials can explain this. At the same time, the principal secretary of the department, Ashok Shah, says that the file was sent to the minister for approval.
The charge sheet was not reached within the stipulated period. She has been restored as per the rules. Their headquarters is Indore. As far as the charge sheet and suspension are concerned, now the government will see it further. Meanwhile, Anshubala Christ himself ordered his restoration and sent it to the principal secretary of the department. In this, he made the basis of civil service conduct rule.
