Shri RANJIT MARNDI , Scientist”E” ,ITR, Chandipur has huge Immovable Property in BALASORE, which is disproportionate to his income by corrupt practices in DRDO. He has recently built a Two Storey Building with High Class Marble brought through a Contractor M/s Jeet & Jeet, Jaipur as a Free Gift by helping him out for procurement of two Nos of Blast Proof Shelters in 2009-10. He has purchased landed property of around 2acres in around Balasore without permission from Govt. Can the DRDO authorities investigate his disproportionate wealth ? Otherwise he will eat whole

Sub.: MISCONDUCT & CORRUPT PRACTICES BY Shri PC ROUTRAY,Sc”F”,
- 1. The following allegations may be verified against Shri PRAKASH CHANDRA ROUTRAY, Scientist”F”, ITR, Chandipur.
(a) In the year, 1996-1997, he had used political influence (by approaching a Senior Member of Parliament Shri Srikant Jena) to influence upon the DRDO Hqs to get his transfer from VRDE, Ahmednagar to ITR, Chandipur. On this aspect he has been duly warned by DRDO Hqs and then Director of the VRDE. But subsequently, after succumbing to the pressures of the political person, DRDO HQs finally transferred him to ITR. The records at DOP,DRDO HQs and VRDE, Ahmednagar can be verified.
(b) Shri PC Routray,Sc”F” has used his official position in ITR,Chandipur to influence Shri R Appavuraj , Sc”F” (the then Secretary of DRDO Range Educational Society, Chandipur) and Maj Gen(retd) US Abrol, the then Director & Commandant of PXE,Chandipur and Patron of DRDO Range Educational Society to get his wife Mrs Bindukalpa Routray , M Sc (Zoology), B Ed to get her selected as a Primary Teacher (PRT) in Range School, Chandipur by unfair means , whereas she was rejected by a selection board headed by Mr N Ganeshan,Sc”F”(retd) in 1998 to select TGTs. Without any proper advertisement for PRTs and clear violation of norms by DOMS, DRDO Hqs, wife of Shri PC Routray was appointed as regular Primary Teacher (PRT) by ignoring other candidates and without giving wide publicity.
(c) Shri PC Routray, Sc”F” had appeared for a examination for part-time MCA course conducted by IGNOU at FM Autonomous College, Balasore Centre along with his wife Mrs Bindukalpa Routray, a Primary Teacher in Range School, Chandipur. During this course, he had several times harassed the teaching faculty especially Ms Minati Mishra of the IGNOU, Balasore Centre by influencing other part-time students. During the examination, she was caught red handed while doing malpractice. He had misbehaved with the invigilators and was debarred from the examination. The matter was reported to ,DOP, DRDO Hqs and subsequently his assessment result for post of Sc”F” for 2006 & 2007 was withheld and DRDO Hqs conducted inquiry in this aspect. He had threatened the IGNOU Professors for taking revenge with the help of his spouse’s brother who is a political leader in Cuttack (now in Indian National Congress Party) and another relative of his own who was IG, Police, Bhubaneswar in 2005. The then Director of ITR, Shri AK Checker ,Sc”G” and several senior officers of ITR e.g. Shri SR Bera,Sc”G”, Shri R Appavuraj ,Sc”F” were also threatened by him. The records at DOP, DOMS may be verified
(d) Shri PC Routray,Sc”F” had influenced his spouse Mrs Bindukalpa Routray, a PRT in DRDO Range Educational Society ,Chandipur) to file a criminal case against the Principal of the Range School in Sep 2005 on a false allegation which is still sub judicious, By approaching his relatives who are in political circles and IG,Police ,Bhubaneswar he got SA Ahmad,Principal, Range School arrested from his residence at Bhubaneswar. The Departmental inquiry ordered by Shri GC Das,Sc”G’ ,the then Director of PXE and President ,DRDO Range Educational Society found Mrs Bindukalpa Routray ,PRT guilty of filing a false allegation & without putting a formal complaint/grievance to the School Management. But the report was put under cold storage by Director, PXE who was influenced through pressures from Maj Gen (retd) US Abrol, the then Director, VRDE. Now Shri PC Routray is using his official position and threatening the staff of Range School to give witnesses in his wife’s favour. The retired Principal who is under medical treatment at Bhubaneswar is being unnecessarily harassed by Shri PC Routray ,Sc”F” . He is also instrumental in instigating contract workers in Range School to file several court cases, cases in EPF Commissioner’s Office and Central labour Commissioners Office. Thus he is instrumental in spoiling the reputation of the Range School and DRDO in particular.
(e) Shri PC Routray,Sc”F” had manipulated in Purchases made by his Deptt. From 2004-2008. He has awarded Annual Maintenance contracts and several purchase orders (Cash purchase & Tender purchase) to one M/s SP Sales & Service, Balasore which is not having existence now. He had manipulated the procurement by allowing a cartel formation of firms during limited tender process. He has visible links with M/s Pentagon Rugged Systems, Hyderabad whose Managing Director uses official transport at ITR and DRDO VIP Guest House at Chandipur & also M/s Maity & Co, Chandipur,M/s Balaji Enterprises, Balasore & M/s Sk Allauddin, Balasore. He is collecting huge amount of Bribe in Cash from the Contractors pressuring them not to pay the minimum wages to Conservancy workers and their EPF in collusion with Shri LAXMAN LIKHAR, JCDA, Balasore, to construct his house at Cuttack and Flat at Bhubaneswar. He has use political pressure by approaching Mr Pranab Mukherjee,Defence Minister in 2007-08 through WB Pradesh Congress to get his promotion with retrospective effect from July 2006 though SA to RM & then CCR&D(MSS) were not in his favour .During BrahMos missions conducted from ITR, Chandipur he had personally hired A/C buses for Russian Team from Grand Coach, Cuttack through his relative (his spouse’s brother ,a political activist at Cuttack) by manipulating purchase procedure of Brahmos Aerospace Ltd, N Delhi.. He has misbehaved with several Senior Officers posted to ITR (Shri BK Paltasingh, Sc”F’, Shri A Thyagraj. Sc”F”,Col R Sharma, Maj Gen(retd) RK Sahoo, Cdr A Mishra, Col S Anikhandi, Cdr A Sarabhai, Shri NN Nayak,Sc”F’, PXE,Shri SR Bera,Sc”G”(retd) ,Col(retd) B Bas, EMU , Gp Capt US Rajababu, PGAD and also several other Senior Officers of PXE & Projects and staff of ITR to name a few who want peaceful co-existence). Recently again he used political influence on DOP to get DRDS Assessment Call in Excellent Category by increasing his C_PAR marks of 2006 which was damaged by then Director, ITR Shri AK Checker due to his gross misconduct.
2. It is requested that ,the DRDO Hqs should take a strong stand in this matter by not succumbing to political pressures and transferring both Shri PC Routray,Sc”F”, B.Tech, M.Tech. ,MBA,PGDM who is a so called Management Guru, from ITR, Chandipur and removing his wife Mrs BK Routray, PRT from Range School, Chandipur at the earliest and post him to a suitable place like SASE, MANALI or FRL,LEH on PUBLIC INTERST to have a conducive atmosphere at DRDO estate, Chandipur
