NEW DELHI: The Centre on Thursday formed a single-member committee to “verify the candidature claims and other details” of probationary IAS officer Puja Khedkar, who has been accused of allegedly misusing disability and OBC quota to secure a position in the service.
An additional secretary-level officer of the department of personnel and training (DoPT) will chair the panel that will inquire into the matter and submit a report in two weeks.
“The central government has constituted a single-member committee, chaired by a senior officer of the rank of Additional Secretary to government of India to verify the candidature claims and other details of Ms. Puja Manorma Dilip Khedkar, a candidate of Civil Services Examination-2022 and earlier CSEs. The committee will submit its report in 2 weeks,” the Personnel Ministry said in a statement.
The 34-year-old probationary officer, a candidate of Civil Services Examination (CSE) 2022 and earlier CSEs, has been accused of allegedly misusing benefits under the physical disabilities category and Other Backward Class (OBC) quota to secure a position in the Indian Administrative Service (IAS).
She was transferred on Monday to Washim from Pune over allegations of bullying and entitled behaviour.
Khedkar on Thursday took charge as an assistant collector at the Washim District Collectorate in Vidarbha region.
