‘Adarsh’ babus to file response today
Mumbai: The tainted babus involved in the Adarsh housing society scam will file their reply on Tuesday, in response to the Maharashtra government’s notices to bureaucrats whose kin own flats in the controversial building in south Mumbai.
The government had given them a seven-day period, which expires today, to explain the source of funds.
The bureaucrats were also asked to explain alleged breach of conduct of civil service rules.
Those issued notices include 17 IAS, IPS and IFS officers, both serving and retired. Prominent among them are former BMC commissioner Jairaj Phatak, former Urban Development Secretary Ramanand Tiwari, former Urban Development Deputy Secretary P V Deshmukh, and former Chief Secretary D K Shankaran. Children of these officials own flats in Adarsh.
As per the rules, government officials have to declare information pertaining to their sources of income and funding and the government can seek those information at any point in time.
The development comes in the backdrop of reports about collusion between politicians, defence officers and senior bureaucrats to corner flats in the building.
