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.
Both the suspended senior and junior assistants are already in controversy. Ajay Malhotra, a senior assistant, is accused of missing the Improvement Trust's data. On the suggestion of the DC-cum-Chairman Improvement Trust, a FIR has been filed against him, while the junior assistant is suspected of embezzling money from the Improvement Trust's office.
