Subject: Dr A K Saxena, Director, DMSRDE, DRDO, Kanpur’s misadventure by repairing multi utility shed from the cloth (Dress Material or other purpose) procured for Army Jawans
Sir, DMSRDE having a multi utility shed for organizing different local functions and programs. The structure built by steel and covered by water proof cloth like used by tent houses.
Recently this Feb 26-28, 2015 at DMSRDE, Kanpur organized a Conference on Microscopy in Materials Science and Biomimetic Technology with Academy of microscopic science and technology (AMST) society, Kanpur in above multi utility shed.
Dr A K Saxena, Director, DMSRDE founder of Academy of microscopic science and technology (AMST) society, Kanpur.
Just before conference MULI UTILITY SHED repaired by VIRAJ SYNTAX LTD, Kanpur, and the Material was provided by DMSRDE, Kanpur under directive of Dr A kK Saxena.
The material used was PU COATED NYLON WHITE FABRIC (Procured for fabrication of WIND CHEATER FOR GLACER REGION) and Green PVC Coated fabric they have used for upper layer of shed.
The Multi Utility shed being a part of the public infra structure the work should have been done by public concerned authority such as CC (R&D)N , MES, but as a matter of habitual procedural defiance the work was done the other way and therefore no norms for repairs followed resulting in wastage of the material
White fabric was procured in 1999-2000 in excess and store audit objection is in position.
Interestingly, the valuable public material got issued in the name of ‘study purpose’ just before the conference jointly organized by DMSRDE and AMST (Academy of microscopic science and technology) in which Dr. KN Pandey , Retd. TO”C”, one of the very close circle advisors group of Dr. AK Saxena is the founder general secretary of wonderful society the AMST where there are no declared policies or bye laws and no transparency in accounts handling.
With a very huge loss to public property approximately 1000 m market rate is (RS 250/meter) of pu coated nylon white was used for lower layer total shed where a much low cost white cloth would have been sufficient for aesthetics.
400 meters market rate is RS 450 /meter of pu coated green heavy cloths were used for upper layer.
The repairs could not last even for two months and again they are using the unduly expensive cloth for re-repairing with the purpose of getting rid of the audit objection in an unmindful and sheepish way.
The current position of this multi utility shed’s photographs is enclosed for your ready reference.
Sir, It is requested that please direct these DRDO officials not to waste public money for their adventures, needful inquiry is also requested in this Dr A K Saxena’s misadventure.
