PIO for BMRCL has been stripped of his post for failing to heed the law of the land
Ref: PIO of BMRCL fined for non-furnishing of information under RTI
Comment: Thanks to the efforts of RTI Activist (Mr. Narasinhamurthy) the previous PIO for BMRCL has been stripped of his post for failing to heed the law of the land.
We hope the new officer, under the guidance of the new MD will prove to be a worthy and credible officer.
The previous PIO who has been indicted by the respected courts of the land and penalised, not once but many times, had shown no signs of remorse and his high handed behavior smacked of arrogance, duly indulged by the previous MD of BMRCL. It is shocking to see him continue for so long despite being regularly reprimanded by the courts. His continued service as GM Finance (despite having no formal qualification or knowledge in finance) was only thanks to the blessings of the now removed MD of BMRCL.
Once again congratulations to the relevant RTI activists for helping remove one more either corrupt or inefficient or high-handed government officer.
