Suspended woman IAS officer`s allegation baseless

A 1976 batch IAS officer, Shankar, Commissioner of the National Capital Region Cell of UP, was suspended on September nine by the state government.



Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government has
said suspended woman IAS officer Promilla Shankar`s allegation
that she was being victimised is baseless, misleading and
irresponsible.

Justifying its action of suspending the officer, a
state government release yesterday said she had gone on five
tours abroad in the past one year just after informing the
government but without getting her leaves sanctioned.

In a letter to the Union government, Shankar had
alleged the actual reason for her suspension was her objection
to the master plan of the UP government for "massive
urbanisation" by the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development
Authority.

A 1976 batch IAS officer, Shankar, Commissioner of the
National Capital Region Cell of UP, was suspended on September
nine by the state government.

Going abroad without getting the leaves sanctioned was a
violation of rule three of the of the All-India Services rules
1968 as well as the All-India Services (leave) Rules 1955,
formulated by the Personnel and Training Department,
Government of India, the release said.

It termed her allegation against the state government
that she was being victimised as baseless, misleading and
irresponsible.

By making the allegation, she had also violated rules of
the conduct of services which say members of the service shall
maintain absolute integrity and devotion to duty and shall do
nothing which is unbecoming of a member of the service, the
release said.
