Wasting taxpayers' money to drag an avoidable conflict with Ex-CVO AIIMS

By IndianMandarins- 02 Jul 2019


The Central government and the AIIMS have tied themselves with proverbial Gordian knot in their dealings with Sanjiv Chaturvedi (IFoS:2002:UD). And the more they drag the case at the cost of poor taxpayers against an honest civil servant, the more they rub their nose time and again in the dust of the courtrooms.


In the latest instance, the Uttarakhand High Court has issued a contempt of court notice to Union Health Secretary Preeti Sudan (IAS:1983:AP) and AIIMS Director, Dr. Randeep Guleria,  for having failed to pay the cost of Rs 25,000 to Chaturvedi in accordance with the direction of the court.


In August, 2018, the Court had imposed that cost on the Centre for misleading the Principal Bench of Central Administrative Tribunal at New Delhi into staying proceedings in a service matter case filed by Chaturvedi before the Nainital bench wherein he had sought to quash his poor appraisal report for 2015-16 when he served as CVO at AIIMS New Delhi.
