Chandigarh, May 19

The Local Government Department has suspended Zirakpur civic body’s Executive Officer (EO) Manvir Singh Gill in connection with issuing completion certificates “illegally” to several residential-cum-commercial projects. Additional Chief Secretary (Local Government) Sanjay Kumar issued the suspension order on Tuesday.

Gill has been suspended on the basis of an interim report submitted by the Chief Vigilance Officer (CVO). Local Government Minister Brahm Mohindra had asked the CVO to probe the misuse of powers by Gill in issuing completion certificates “illegally”.

Sources in the department say the EO did not have the authority to issue completion certificates. He allegedly issued certificates to major projects spread over five acres. One of the projects is developed over 21 acres.

“Five cases have been traced. We suspect that 12 certificates were issued. These are missing from the record,” an official said. — TNS
