Two officers of DDA suspended

Vice-Chairman, DDA has suspended two officers of DDA, one Dy. Director in Old Scheme Branch and one Assistant of the Old Scheme Branch (earlier posted in OSB and now posted in Systems) for unduly harassing the public and for mischief. In a case of mutation and free-hold in OSB the file had been deliberately misplaced and the applicant had alleged intentional harassment by these two officers. The matter came to light, out of VC/DDA public hearing, being held on every Wednesday. A detailed vigilance investigation is being carried out to establish the charges and to fix deterrent punishment so that such cases are not repeated in future.

DDA has requested its allottees to approach senior officers in public hearing in case they are being unduly harassed by any officer or official.
