1982 batch of IAS: Srivastava would remain torch bearer

By IndianMandarins 29 May 2019

Ahead of PM’s oath scheduled tomorrow a massive bureaucratic reshuffle is speculated next month. When seniority and retirement age of senior serving IAS officers (serving at Centre) are being calculated in almost every quarters, the two senior officers Avinash Srivastava (IAS:1982:UP) would be the single from his batch to remain on the pitch beyond this year. He would be the last officers in his batch to retire January next year. Rest of his batchmates will be retiring this year itself. Sanjay Mitra (IAS:WB) is retiring this month whereas Telecom Secretary Ms Aruna Sundararajan (IAS:KL) and DIPP Secretary Ramesh Abhishek (IAS:BH) would retire July this year. The outgoing Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba (IAS:JH) will be retiring August year though, as assumed, he may remain on turf for a couple of years as next Union Cabinet Secretary. However it is believed Ms Aruna and Abhishek may be rewarded some post-retirement assignments.

 

Further, rest of their batchmates (in cadre states) will be retiring by September this year namely; Deepak Singhal (IAS:UP), D S Dhesi (IAS:HY), Pravir Kumar (IAS:UP), Pravesh Sharma (IAS:MP), Amitabh Verma (IAS:BH).   

 

Though Sudhi Ranjan Mohanty (IAS:MP), Chief Secretary of Madhya Pradesh, would be the last from his batch to retire that is in March 2020, Srivastava, being posted at centre, will hold grounds till January 2020 who might emerge as a dark horse for coveted positions in Modi 2.0 administration.

MP CS appointment challenged: SC to examine corruption charges

By IndianMandarins 16 Feb 2019

The Supreme Court has admitted a petition challenging the appointment of S R Mohanty (IAS:1982:MP) as Chief Secretary of Madhya Pradesh on the ground that he was allegedly involved in a corruption case pertaining to state industrial development corporation. Accordingly, a bench of CJI Ranjan Gogoi and Justices Sanjiv Khanna issued a notice to the Centre and sought its reply in six weeks.

 

Senior advocate Maninder Singh, appearing for petitioner Manohar Dalal, said that the present case demonstrates a glaring abuse of power by Mohanty.

 

He argued that the charge of abuse of power is established by the fact that DG EOW who was probing the corruption case against him was removed on January 02, immediately after Mohanty took charge as chief secretary on December 31, 2018.

 

Singh said the DG of EOW was appointed only six months before that but was replaced.

The petitioner had sought directions for quashing Mohanty's appointment and a fresh departmental inquiry against him.

 

Dalal also pleaded for transferring the case registered by EOW against Mohanty to CBI for further investigation. He sought that fresh departmental inquiry be held under the supervision of a retired judge of the apex court or the high court.

 

The petitioner, a practicing advocate in MP High Court said that Mohanty is also required to be shifted from the critical and important post of Chief Secretary as was done in the corruption case against Neera Yadav, who was chief secretary of Uttar Pradesh.    

 

"During his tenure as the Managing Director of MPSIDC from 2000-2004, SR Mohanty disbursed loans in violation of the decisions of the state government and contrary to Article of Association of MPSIDC," the plea said.

 

It added that the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) in its 2003 report had pointed out that MPSIDC which was under Mohanty, illegally disbursed financial assistance without the approval of the state government and contrary to the provisions of Article of Association.

 

Referring to a report of Raghav Chandra, who was a successor to Mohanty in MPSIDC, the plea said that he had pointed out that Mohanty disbursed Rs 91.57 crore to 18 borrowers, of which some were fake companies.

 

The state government then sent a report to the state EOW which on detailed inquiry registered FIR in 2004 against 84 persons including Mohanty for abusing his official position by conniving with private companies and had caused loss to the state government.

   

"Despite serious corruption case pending against SR Mohanty, the newly elected state government, which came back into power after 15 years, appointed him as the chief secretary of the state of Madhya Pradesh on December 31, 2018," it said.

   

It said that before the appointment of Mohanty as chief secretary, the state government had completed the departmental inquiry, pending against him for 11 years, within one week and exonerated him of all charges.

   

"The entire inquiry was a farce and concluded post haste only to exonerate SR Mohanty so that he can be appointed as Chief Secretary," it said, adding that immediately after being appointed Mohanty on January 2, transferred the Madhu Kumar as DG of EOW and replaced him with a new officer.

   

"The state government has decided that through newly appointed director general of EOW, it would withdraw the corruption charges against SR Mohanty pending before the competent court," the plea said.

  

It further said that the state government has also decided to withdraw a case against Mohanty pending in the apex court.

   

"The closure of such a serious corruption case against senior official would also amount to a miscarriage of justice, who abused his official position and caused loss to the state exchequer", it said.

Mohanty's appointment as MP CS disappoints some officers

By IndianMandarins 06 Jan 2019

Sudhi Ranjan Mohanty's appointment as the new chief secretary of MP is said to have disappointed a powerful group of civil servants who are said to have been close to the former CM, Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

 

Indianmandarins has learnt that as soon as Mohanty's name started doing the rounds, serious efforts were made to scuttle his appointment including a petition to RaGa's office.

However, the new government wanted to compensate Mohanty for having suffered for being close to the Digvijay Singh government.

 

Mohanty was bypassed in the race for chief secretaryship in 2016 when the BJP government preferred BP Singh, two batches his junior.

 

Since he joined the IAS at the age of 22, and so if his promotion had not been delayed, he would have continued in the post of CS for four years, scuttling the chances of scores of others.

Indianmandarins learns that Kamalnath Govt in Madhya Pradesh may give the outgoing Chief Secretary Basant Pratap Singh (IAS:1984:MP) a comfortable passage by allowing him to complete his extended tenure ending on 31 December 2018.
