Within a span of 21 days, the Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) has dismissed a fourth employee from service. Assistant civil engineer Rameshwar Nandanwar was found guilty in a departmental inquiry.
Municipal commissioner Tukaram Mundhe on Friday approved Nandanwar’s dismissal from service with a note that he will not qualify to get work in any other establishment.
Nandanwar was working with the garden department in NMC’s Gandhibagh Zone. Nandanwar was suspended five times in his service period.
Nandanwar had taken money from people promising to get their work done. After failing to do so, he issued cheques to the people which bounced.
A police complaint was lodged. Offenses are registered against him in Panchpaoli, Lakadganj, Sadar, and Tehsil police stations. “In case of disproportionate assets of Rs40.87 lakh, the anti-corruption bureau had registered a case against him. An action of stopping his salary hike was also taken against him. NMC received yet another complaint of corruption. Departmental inquiry proved him guilty,” the NMC said.
Since assuming charge on January 28, Mundhe has been taking stringent action against employees against whom inquiries have been completed. On February 14, Mundhe had dismissed property tax collector Anand Fulzele in revenue scam; on February 17 filaria inspector Sanjay Chamke for being absent for long period without intimation and not following higher-ups orders; on March 3 class-III employee Jyotsana Bhivgade in bogus appointments scam.
