3 Odisha Govt Officials Sent On Compulsory Retirement, One Dismissed

Bhubaneswar: Keeping with its zero-tolerance policy towards corruption, the Odisha Government on Thursday sent three officials on compulsory retirement and dismissed another on disciplinary grounds.

The three officials, who have been given compulsory retirement are Community Organiser of Sambalpur Municipality Corporation (SMC) Lalita Kapoor, who also served as an executive officer in Jatni Municipality and Chhatrapur NAC. Two corruption charges were slapped on her.

Belpahar Municipality’s executive officer Loknath Tiwari and Jharsuguda Municipality’s former executive officer Ramachandra Pradhan have been given compulsory retirement on grounds of inefficiency and dishonesty.

Manoj Parida, Revenue Inspector (RI) of Betal Circle in Puri district, has been dismissed on grounds of misbehaviour, indiscipline, negligence in duty and disobedience.

“Action against the officials was taken following adverse feedback from public under the ‘Mo Sarkar’ initiative,” said an official communique issued by the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO).

This apart, pension of Srikant Mishra, former Additional SP of Balangir and former DSP (Home Guard), and A Udaynath, former AFO of Bellaguntha block in Ganjam district, has been permanently stopped after allegations of corruption levelled against them were found to be true.

So far, similar action has been initiated against 140 officials.
