Col to face court-martial for false transport bills
New Delhi: An Army Colonel is being
court-martialled for allegedly producing false bills to claim
Rs 400 every month as transport allowance.
Colonel V K Sehgal, an artillery officer, was indicted by
a Court of Inquiry (CoI) for producing "fake" bills of Rs 400
every month to claim allowance for transportation between his
office and residence in Jodhpur, Army sources said here.
If the distance between residence and office is more than
one kilometre, officers are entitled to claim transport
allowance if they are using their personal vehicle.
It was found that the officer was using official vehicle
but still producing and claiming these "false" bills for a sum
of Rs 400 per month, the sources claimed.
After the implementation of Sixth Pay Commission report,
Colonels are put in the pay band-4 and draw more than Rs
60,000 per month as salary.
The General Court Martial (GCM) of the officer would be
held at Jodhpur and will be presided over by a Brigadier-rank
officer, the sources said.
