2 government officials were fined 10 thousand rupees each
Under the Haryana Service Rights Act, the Assistant Director of Labor Department, Ambala and the Clerk of Hisar have been fined Rs 10,000 each.
The spokesperson of Haryana Service Rights Commission said that the Haryana government led by Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal has made all possible efforts for the development of the last person in the state.
Under this, the Haryana Right to Service Act enacted in 2014 is proving to be an effective weapon in delivering the ambitious services of the government to the public in a timely and satisfactory manner.
The spokesperson said that Sanjay Kumar has sent his complaint to the commission from district Fatehabad. The Commission issued a notice to the then Labor Commissioner Maniram Sharma and summoned him for a hearing before the Commission. During the hearing, Sanjay Kumar reviewed in detail all the applications made to the board.
Meanwhile, an application of the complainant remained pending with Hisar Clerk Ajay for 90 days without any action. On the second application of the complainant, it was found that Clerk Ajay, raising false objections, forwarded the proposal to reject the applicant’s application to Sunil Nanda, Additional Director, Ambala.
The Additional Director also accepted the baseless offer of the Clerk without regard to the rules and showing utter negligence. The commission has given notice to both of them for this negligence and disregard of rules. They were also invited to give their explanation and be heard.
Even during the hearing, both the employees did not give any satisfactory justification for their lapse and failure to furnish the notified service. The commission said that such negligence will not be tolerated and a fine of Rs 10,000 each will be imposed on Ajay and Sunil Nanda.
