Two clerks of the Improvement Trust have been accused of tampering with the plots of Surya Enclave in the Punjab district of Jalandhar. Both clerks have been suspended with immediate effect by the local government agency. Both have had their headquarters moved since they were suspended. Both have been assigned to the Chandigarh headquarters. The Director of the Local Government Department acted on the advice of the Vigilance Officer. Both will receive simply maintenance during the interruption.

The Chief Vigilance Office has searched the documents of the Jalandhar Improvement Trust recently. Many anomalies were discovered after studying the allocation documentation of Surya Enclave plot numbers 356B-1, 32C, 552B, 31C, and Surya Enclave Extension plot number 43C. The CVO committee had advised that both be suspended due to the disruptions.

On the suggestion of the Chief Vigilance Officer, Director Local Government has suspended senior assistant Ajay Malhotra and junior assistant Anuj Rai of Jalandhar Improvement Trust in connection with the disturbances in the plots of Surya Enclave.
