Chandigarh, November 17

A senior assistant in the Social Welfare Department, Rakesh Kumar Arora, who is one of the officials named in the wrong disbursal of funds under the SC post-matric scholarship scheme, has been given the additional charge of Shagun Scheme.

Posted in Fazilka, Arora, along with Deputy Director PS Gill, Deputy Controller of Finance and Audit Charanjit Singh, section officer Mukesh Bhatia and senior assistant Baldev Singh, had been held responsible for the wrongful payment of Rs 7 crore to private educational institutions by a three-panel committee of IAS officers Jaspal Singh, KAP Sinha and Vivek Partap Singh. The probe panel had pointed out that the erring officials conducted a re-audit on their own. The report with comments of Chief Secretary Vini Mahajan was submitted to the CM, who then sought action against the guilty. — TNS
