Sanjeev Chaturvedi wanted to shift from Haryana to Uttarakhand
Pankaj Kumar | December 11, 2014
Whistle-blower officer Sanjeev Chaturvedi has suffered further setback as his cadre transfer from Haryana to Uttarakhand has been rejected by the cabinet secretariat.
The Indian forest service officer was on deputation from June 2012 for four years, and he was working in the capacity of the deputy secretary in All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) after being removed as its central vigilance officer in September. He had requested a change in cadre because his life was perceived to be under threat after he unearthed several financial scandals during Bhupinder Singh Hooda’s tenure. The central vigilance commission (CVC) too had asked the central government to ensure safety and security of the officer.
His cadre transfer proceedings were nearly complete as the governments of Haryana and Uttrakhand had given him a no-objection certificate (NOC) and the environment ministry too had given a green signal.
This file was further approved by the department of personnel and training (DoPT) and lastly it had to be approved from the cabinet secretariat and then from the appointment committee of cabinet (ACC).
