DVC defies Ministry of Power directive to victimise a whistle-blower engineer
Despite a relief order from Ministry of Power, Damodar Valley Corporation (DVC) continues to be harsh to a whistle-blower engineer who complained about massive corruption in the corporation.

P P Sah, General Secretary of DVC engineers Association continues to be victimised even after Ministry of Power (MOP) advised DVC Chairman to cancel his transfer order. The MOP order of October 29 clearly states that report of Chief Vigilance Officer DVC has been examined and is found to be correct.

Sah had filed a number of complaints before the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) under the whistleblower resolution of Government of India. Having blown the lid off a number of scams in DVC he is now facing the wrath of DVC management. The complaints investigated proved to be correct.

DVC management retaliated by transferring him from Bokaro (Jharkhand) to Trichurapally (Tamil Nadu) on May 24 and releasing him on same day. There is no sanctioned post of DVC at Trichurapally. The matter was taken up with various authorities in the country.

All India Power Engineers Federation, in a letter to Prime Minister and CVC has written that since CVC knows whistleblower P P Sah has filed a number of corruption related charges against DVC before the Commission, surely there is an obligation on the part of Commission itself to intervene against the victimization.

The wife of harassed engineer has written to DVC authorities that her husband was transferred from Bokaro Thermal to BHEL Trichurapally on vindictive attitude. He was transferred only because of the fact that he has blown whistle against the ongoing corruption in DVC.

She wrote that several representations were submitted to CVC and Ministry of Power which were examined and Ministry of Power advised DVC on 29th October 2012 to cancel the transfer order immediately. DVC has not complied with the order of MOP till date just to penalise and victimize a whistleblower.
