Maha to amend laws to book erring retired bureaucrats
Mumbai: Maharashtra government is planning to
Amend laws whereby retired bureaucrats could be charged for
omissions and commissions committed by them while in service.
Minister of State for Urban development Bhaskar Jadhav
said retired bureaucrats take advantage of loopholes in the
laws and there is need to amend them.
"They (bureaucrats)feel that nothing would happen to them
after retirement and at the most, they will lose their
pension. However, the amount of pension is nothing compared to
what they earned by committing irregularities while in
service," Jadhav said.
He also told the assembly that the government was of the
view that?bureaucrats who resign from service should seek
permission of the government before joining private sector.
Jadhav was replying to supplementaries during a calling
attention notice regarding irregularities committed by former
CIDCO Vice President and Managing director?G S Gill which
Leader of opposition Eknath Khadse said was to the tune of
Rs 50,000 crore.
He said the irregularities pertained to allocation of
land, change of land reservation tenders, changing terms and
conditions of accepted tenders.
Khadse had demanded that bureaucrats should be barred
from taking up jobs in private sector for atleast five years
after their voluntary retirement from government service.
The Minister said that two secretary level committees
were set up last year to probe decisions taken by Gill?in the
last six months before his retirement.
