Four BMC staffers facing bribery enquiries get executive postings

Four staffers in the BMC’s License Department have been given executive postings even though they are facing enquiries into allegations that they took bribes.

A Review Committee headed by the municipal commissioner had directed the concerned department to reinstate these staffers only on non-executive posts until the enquiry against them was concluded, according to the BMC’s internal records.

On November 5, 2020, the Review Committee held a meeting under the chairmanship of Municipal Commissioner I S Chahal to decide on the reinstatement of about 50 officials who had been caught by Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) over the years.
