Service records of CAG not traceable: Govt
New Delhi: The crucial service records of Comptroller and Auditor General Vinod Rai are not traceable with the Personnel ministry, an RTI reply has revealed.
A Lucknow-based journalist had sought from the Department of Personnel and Training the service records of Rai which included certificate of selection in the Indian Administrative Service, appointment letter among other details.
Responding to the queries, the Department of Personnel and Training said the files sought were not traceable.
The Ministry, while replying to his query, seeking high school and date of birth certificate, said, "The UPSC application dossier of Vinod Rai, IAS (KL:1972) is not traceable. Hence the information sought for by you is not materially available with the undersigned."
A similar reply was given to the journalist`s queries regarding service records of 64-year-old Rai, who has hogged media headlines after CAG reports on 2G Telecom spectrum allocation, coal block allocation, Delhi Airport and Commonwealth Games indicated serious irregularities.
The journalist was advised by Department of Personnel to contact the Kerala Government with regards to queries on retirement from the service as the matter was "closely related" with the state.
"Your query is more closely concerned with the Government of Kerala. If deemed fit you may contact the state government of Kerala in this regard. The undersigned does not have any record in this regard," CIPO and under secretary Narendra Gautam said in the reply.
Regarding Rai`s appointment as the Comptroller and Auditor General, the application was transferred to CAG office for reply.
