New Delhi
The government has set up a Group of Officials to look into complaints against ranking officers of PSUs and PSBs. The group will be led by Secretary (Coordination) in the Cabinet Secretariat and include Secretaries of the Departments of Financial Services and Public Enterprises and Central Vigilance Commission. The group is authorized to examine complaints against Chairmen and Managing Directors, Chief Executives, Functional Directors, Part-time and Non-official Chairpersons, Workmen Directors, Officers’ Directors and Chartered Accountant Directors of central public sector firms, public sector banks, financial institutions and public sector insurers. “Complaints received from the Prime Ministers’ Office (PMO), Cabinet Secretariat, or Department of Public Enterprises (DPE) against these categories of officials would be dealt by the Group of Officials,” said a recent order by the DPE. “Anonymous and pseudonymous complaints can be filed with the approval of Secretary (Coordination) and details of such filed complaints will be placed before the Group in its next meeting for information,” said the order.
Working in a time-bound manner, the Group can also seek comments from the nodal Ministry on the officer or call for files, if it is of the view that the complaint requires further scrutiny. Ministries and departments would be expected to respond to its queries within 30 days and will have another 15 days for furnishing any clarifications. “In cases where the officer against whom a complaint has been made is retiring in the near future, the concerned Ministry or Department will ensure submission of their reports in a strict time frame to enable the Group to submit its recommendations before the date of retirement of such officer,” said the circular.
