Subject: FCC Business in DRDO- Corruption in DMSRDE, Kanpur by Dr. Rajesh Kumar Tiwari, Scientist ‘F’
As you aware there are several questions raised by honorable members of Parliament regarding corrupt practice complaints against DRDO Directors and senior scientist but unfortunately DRDO “pull the wool over MoD eyes” in the name of constitution Fact Finding Committees for such complaints. The fact is the committees chairman and members are always their yes man/chamchas. The reports generated after consuming months and months and as per designed by DG and his loyal coterie. CVO, MoD only busy with correspondences for several years in each case.
Sir, you just call a sample case from CVO, MoD on your table, will expose the modus operendi of these great manipulator scientists of DRDO. Whether case of R&D E, Ex Director Dr Guruprasad, Ex Director DMSRDE, Dr A K Saxena, Dr A K Tyagi, Scietist ‘G’, Ex C C &D, Dr Selvamurty and so many case are pending in the desk of CVO, MoD waiting for fake reports of FFIC’s and clarifications of show cause notices replies of DRDO.
Corruption and adoption of corrupt practices in routine office activities is inherent property of DMSRDE, Kanpur. Even after dozens of complaints on corruption to CVC and its slow motion action on these complaints, Hon’ble High Court Delhi Order in PIL WP(C) No. 3610/2015 dated 17 Dec 2015 and Show Cause Notices to more than 30 Scientists and officers of DMSRDE, Kanpur and approval of Charge Sheet under Major Penalty to Ex- Director Dr. Arvind Kumar Saxena there is no fear in some daring Scientists of DMSRDE and once again Corruption started in DMSRDE, Kanpur.
The recent case is of Complaint dated 21 October 2016 by Shri K.K. Sharmaagainst Dr. Rajesh Kumar Tiwari, Scientist ‘F’. As usual on receiving of complaint DRDO HQ constituted Fact Finding Committee (FCC) – Chairman Shri R.K. Sharma, Scientist ‘G’ , DPA, DRDO HQ.
The case relates to complaint dated 21 October 2016 sent by Shri K.K. Sharma, DMSRDE, Kanpur to Hon’ble RakshaMantri alleging corruption in procurement of material by using fake addresses of firms by Dr. R.K. Tiwari, Scientist ‘F’, DMSRDE, Kanpur in development of Bullet Proof Jacket (BPJ) GSQR 1318.
A File No. DVS/02/2039/P/22 was initiated in the matter and a revised report in accordance with Note No. 19 dated 09 March 2017 was seek by Director General (NS &M) and letter was sent to Dr. N. Eswara Prasad, Director, DMSRDE on 21.03.2017 from Office of DG(NS&M). He was asked to submit the revised report by 23 June 2017 vide DG(NS&M) letter No. DVS/02/2039/P/22 dated 19 June 2017.
As a matter of fact Dr. Rajesh Kumar Tiwari, Scientist ‘F’ was Head of Composite Material Division and Project Head of Body Armour : Bullet Proof Jacket (BPJ) -GSQR 1318. He was removed from Head, Composite Division and Shri A.S. Parihar , Scientist ‘E’ was made Project Head & Head of Composite Division by Director, DMSRDE under huge pressure of DRDO HQ. It is relevant to mention here that Show Cause notice has been issued to Shri A. S. Parihar , Scientist ‘E’ in Corruption matter of Dr. A.K. Saxena complaints and his promotion was also withheld by DRDO HQ for several months.
Dr. Rajesh Kumar Tiwari, Scientist ‘F’ is still posted at DMSRDE, Kanpur and no action has been taken against him. He is having blessings of Dr. N. Eswara Prasad, Director, DMSRDE and enjoying at DMSRDE, Kanpur. DRDO HQ is trying to wash out the matter by its FCC business ( means submit fake FCC report and protect the corrupt) and adopting delay tactics in this complaint.
Sir, your Government is having policy of “zero tolerance” on corruption then why not any disciplinary action has been initiated since last 09 months of filing the complaint? I kindly request you to take urgent action in the matter and issue orders to immediate transfer/posting of Dr. Rajesh Kumar Tiwari, Scientist ‘F’ out of DMSRDE as he is affecting the inquiry and influencing the case due to his contacts at DMSRDE. It is relevant to mention here that Dr. Rajesh Kumar Tiwari, Scientist ‘F’ is posted at DMSRDE since the year 1990.
