8. Brief facts of the case:
DRDO having approx 7000 strong scientist team and recently DRDO is asking more scientists from Government of India stated that the existing authorized manpower is exhausted and to deliver assigned projects output in time they need more scientist. Presently DRDO management is wasted their scientific and technical manpower in admin allied, stores procurement, security, arboriculture, horticultures and works (constructions) assignments for some vested reasons. To know the exactly about the ground realty of using manpower in proper assignments I have requested on behalf of poor tax payers, how much money are wasting by DRDO by putting scientific and technical manpower in sundry works and information will also reflect that the authorized manpower for admin allied are misutilizing by DRDO.
The service in Govt. of India is controlled by article 145 of constitution and SRO’s are prepared considering the locus standy to meet the functional requirements.
The sanction under SRO is granted for appointing Scientist “B” to Distinguished Scientists in Officer Cadre.
Until the SRO amendment it is crime and violation of CCS/CCA rules of the Govt. of India.
DRDO is wasting poor tax payer money by using scientific and technical manpower in admin allied work.
For example as Director DRDL appointed since July 2008 Sh.YV Ratna Prasad, scientist ‘F’ as Director Management Services ( order copy is enclosed for your ready reference) and a senior scientist is performing admin allied task without having the knowledge of administration, resulted being a CPIO, DRDL in one of his reply to RTI request signed as for Director etc. this the tip of ice berg of DRDO culture. If one can look DRDO telephone directory the will find several example i.e lot of scientist and technical manpower are deputing in admin allied, stores procurement, security, arboriculture, horticultures and works (constructions) assignments for some vested reasons, and they are also enjoying the financial incentive.
If Finance Ministry, Ministry of Personal and CIC examine the utilization of DRDO scientist and technical manpower they will found more then 25 % manpower is engaged in these sundry money making assignments.
And interesting point is that DRDO is approaching Government of India for releasing more scientific manpower as they have already exhausted the existing one.
