CENTRAL INFORMATION COMMISSION Room No. 308, B-Wing, August Kranti Bhawan, Bhikaji Cama Place, New Delhi-110066
Information Asked Regarding – Dr. Prahlada, CC R&D (Ae & SI) & DS and Other top DRDO officials are misusing the guest house facility and also drawing HRA , attract the serious disciplinary action against the official, DRDO following blind law, different rules for different persons.
Why I asked this Information – The DRDO Appellate Authority Dr. Prahlada, CC R&D (Ae & SI) & DS have not given his residence address and contact details in any documents or website or any other public domain. I think he is staying in DRDO Bhawan itself. The CPIO and FAA of DRDO Hqrs both are on their posting at DRDO Hqrs, staying in DRDO Guest House and drawing the HRA. So how can Indian citizen expect any right information from these corrupt officials?
There more 9-10 CC R&D and Directors who are belongs to Hyderabad and Bangalore and their families are staying Hyderabad and Bangalore respectively and they all are staying in DRDO guest houses they are giving their residence address in telephone directory at DRDO guest houses and enjoying HRA also. They are frequent fliers, they all are already break the Milkha Singh ‘s (Flying Sikh of India) records and relishing without fear with TD with poor tax payers money.
Following DRDO senior official are staying in guest house since their positing to DRDO Hqrs and drawing the 30% HRA . it is big money and two major points i.e. one -these guest house not meant for permanent residence and second when the official come from various station to attend the meeting these guest house are not available for them and they have to spent precious poor tax payers money in luxury hotels.
There are more than 15 room is permanently occupied by DRDO senior officials in C-7, DRDO Guest House, Qutab Enclave, &6 official also unauthorized /occupied the DRDO Guest Development Enclave Rao, Tularam Marg, because as per sanction both places are as DRDO guest house facility in Govt .of India’s records. This is the purely dadagiri of DRDO.
Following DRDO senior official are staying in guest house as DRDO telephone Directory
And some of official are drawing HRA as per CDA records it can be verified I have recived some information from PCDA in this regard.
Under the chairmanship of DRDO’s Appellate Authority, so called expert of DRDO Hqrs, DRDL, Hyderabad and DEAL, Dehradun met on 16th July 2010 at First Appellate Authority’s Office and decided not to give single information to RTI requester but only to reply to obstruct the giving of correct information to RTI requester they wasted lot of public money on TA/DA for said government officials who attended the said meeting from Hyderabad and Dehradun.
Camouflage of exemption under schedule –II of RTI Act 2005 has been deliberately taken to circumvent to deny the required information
The DRDO Appellate Authority Dr. Prahlada, CC R&D (Ae & SI) & DS has not given his residence address and contact details in any documents or website or any other public domain. It is therefore considered that he is staying in DRDO Bhawan itself. The CPIO and FAA of DRDO Hqrs both are on their posting at DRDO Hqrs, staying in DRDO Guest House and drawing HRA.
