Chandrashekhar Bawankule inspects Kamptee Tehsil Office

Taking a tough stand against the officials and employees who do not come to office in time, Chandrashekhar Bawankule, Guardian Minister of district, asked the senior officers to take action against such ‘absent’ officials and employees.


Bawankule issued the directions after conducting surprise inspection of Kamptee Tehsil Office and other offices in the premises on Tuesday. He paid inspection visit to the premises between 10 am and 11.30 am. Empty chairs welcomed him. He found that 80 per cent of officials and employees had not arrived despite the office hours starting at 10.30 am.


Proper cleanliness was not maintained, files were lying scattered.
The minister also visited Woman and Child Development Office, Employment and Self-Employment Registration Office, Tehsil Agriculture Office, office of Assistant Sub-Registrar, Sub-Treasury Office, etc. Everywhere, scene was almost the same. A furious Bawankule asked Avinash Katade, Sub-Divisional Officer, to take note of the absence of officials and employees. He also directed the Secretary of departments concerned to take action against ‘absent’ officials and employees.


During his visit to Wadoda, Guardian Minister found that clerk in Setu Kendra had joined hands with two touts. Obtaining the complaint from the aggrieved party, Bawankule asked the officials to ensure that the cops booked touts. He also paid visits to Civil Supplies Department, Special Assistance Department etc. Noticing that CCTV camera system in chamber of Sachin Gosavi, Tehsildar, was not working, he asked Resident Deputy Collector to make arrangements for covering entire Tehsil Office area under CCTV surveillance.


Jyoti Kadu, Woman and Child Development Officer, was not present in her office. On enquiry, Bawankule learned that she came from Amravati. A clerk with Setu Kendra, Taywade, also came from Bhandara and arrived late in her office. Taking cognisance of this, the Guardian Minister asked District Collector to freeze house-rennt allowance of officials and employees not residing at the headquarters of posting. The minister also expressed his displeasure over lack of cleanliness, haphazard parking of vehicles, etc.
