It may be mentioned that DVC made an illegal and fraud donation of Rs. 1 crore to an event management company which had to be refunded after its exposure by some whistle blowers inside the DVC itself.
At Raghunathpur thermal, the work was awarded to Reliance Infra Ltd. on a single tender basis and an interest free advance of Rs. 354 crore was given in blatant violation of rules. Further proven use of less steel material in cooling tower of unit no. 1 led to stoppage of work of cooling tower in October 2010 and matter is still hanging fire. DVC has lost Rs. 4680 crore due to non-commissioning of the project.
On one hand, the present DVC chairman has appointed 22 advisors/ consultants and on the other hand, he has been found to be victimizing whistleblowers like AK Jain and PP Sah for pointing out omissions and commissions, leading to dismal performance of DVC.
It may be mentioned that A.K.Jain, President of DVC Engineers’ Association and Addl. Secretary General, All India Power Engineers’ Federation is fighting against corruption in DVC for long now with a view to save DVC from becoming sick due to rampant corruption in its top management.
