Dear Dr Saraswat Ji Jaihind
I have been constantly given you several inputs on different anti-national activities prevailing in DRDO. The root cause of the silence string is corruption, nepotism, regionalism, castism etc.
DRDO has a mission to find out import substitute through fundamental R&D and further developing prototype to meet users requirement.
When and how we deviated from the set object and 30000 strong work force stop vibrating is a question of introspection.
Not only one Lab but almost all 52 Labs has lost its goal and they are treating themselves as a separate entity that has nothing to do with DRDO mission and they have no obligation for their services.
In DEAL, Dehradun the culture of corruption and nepotism is established by Dr A S Bains and the seed he had shown has now emerged as Sh R C Aggarwal who is least bothered about the Government Rules and actively engaged in misappropriation of Government funds.
You can ignore the behavior of Sh R C Aggarwal with other directors. You can ignore his irresponsible step in stopping the NVIS activities. You can ignore his role in stopping the EMP Hardening activities in DEAL
You can ignore when he defies your ambitious project on Submarine Deep Sea Communication
But how can you ignore his role in misappropriation of Government funds specially in SDR Project.
He has manipulating the expenditure under SDR to procure Air Conditioners for his home in DEAL house he put AC’s in each rooms, he procured LCDs with ignoring the procurement norms and no proper procurement rules have been followed.
Out of two stores officer of DEAL one is bedridden for long period and other one who is experienced/ well versed with DRDO procurement rules has been sidelined from taking procurement decision as per rule by DO part order on 8th Nov 2010.
His close confident Sh Hemant Kumar Gupta, Scientist ‘F’, Head Martial Management ( Bania Community) money making machine is virtually the decision maker for all DEAL procurement cases. To give him hassle free environment, and to from the directives of vendors Sh R C Aggarwal has shifted only stores officer of DEAL to outside from stores sanction to SIDEC building. This is a common example of DRDO corrupt practices that the Directors always work from the directives of major suppliers. I can challenge yoy that I can put several examples in south/north Labs where the sensitive placement were done on supplier’s directive.
Here is the one sample characteristic of Sh Hemant Kumar Gupta, Scientist ‘F’, Head Martial Management. On 26th Dec 2007 Sh Hemant Kumar Gupta along with one Technical Officer went to Temporary Duty to SPIC.. But Sh Hemant Kumar Gupta went directly to Phagwara his home town without touching the Temporary Duty Point. From Phagwara he returns along with his Father Shri S.K Gupta directly to Dehradun 29th Dec 2007 (Scanned copy of Ticket enclosed)
But he submitted the claim for said Temporary Duty for Rs 3754/- and the bill was passed for Rs 3020 vide Bill reference No DETRBT 71038 dated 3/1/2008.
This privilege was given by Sh R C Aggarwal as he himself visiting his family members on Temporary Duty to Hyderabad and Bangalore. And it is common practice of some DRDO privileged officials they always used precious poor tax payers money for their personal visits.
The most important example is due to this reason DRDO Hqrs shifted their Directors Review Committee meeting schedule Monday to Tuesday because most of CC R&D’s are always in TD for their family reunion to Hyderabad or Bangalore and due Monday morning flights sometime they face delay so they changed the DRC meeting schedule itself.
Will you please investigate and take the corrective measure on above issues.
Now along with all sensible Indians will understand why the String is not Vibrating.
