Sangli; Leading News Service: The inquiry report regarding recruitment, computerization, furniture etc. during the previous board of directors in the district central bank has been submitted by the inquiry committee to the cooperative department. In it, it has been blamed for huge financial losses to the bank in providing unsecured loans to sugar factories and some other institutions, property purchase, construction and furniture purchase. Apart from that, the recruitment process for 21 technical posts and 400 junior clerical posts is irregular and flawed and there are errors in it. In this case, the investigation officer has given feedback to the government that the bank should be recovered by fixing the liability. Meanwhile, there is talk that the current investigation is political and is due to the muckraking of the leaders. But due to this, the bank, which is important from the point of view of the general public, is being discredited.
A complaint was made to the Cooperative Commissioner against the management of the previous Board of Directors of the Zilla Bank. Taking cognizance of this, the bank was investigated during the Maha Vikas Aghadi government. But later this inquiry was suspended. The Shinde-Fadnavis government has come to power after the change of government. Come after this. Gopichand Padalkar demanded to lift the moratorium on the investigation of the district bank. Accordingly, the current government lifted the moratorium and ordered an inquiry. The said inquiry report was submitted to the Cooperative Commissioner.
In the report, errors have been found in construction, purchase of ATM machine and note counting machine, furniture etc. As much as 4 crores 40 lakhs 90 thousand 754 rupees have been spent on this work and it is definitely not appropriate for the bank to spend such a large amount. It has been pointed out in the report that it is a direct waste of the bank’s funds.
Credit to Cane Agro, Mahankali, Vasantdada, Mahankali and Swapnapurti Sugar Factory, Recruitment of 21 Technical Posts, Recruitment of 400 Junior Clerk Posts, Yashwant Factory Sale Transaction, Loan to Divine Food, Purchase Transaction of 6 Co-operative Societies as per Sarface Act, Sale of Babasaheb Deshmukh Cotton Mill, Khanapur The investigating officers have thoroughly investigated the other points made in the complaint including expansion of taluka cotton mills, loan disbursement to Gopooj Sugar Factory, loan given to a petrol pump by a director. A large number of irregularities, illegal – low mortgage loan distribution, wrong process etc. were found in all the transactions.
Will action be taken against the organizations of BJP leaders?
During the previous board of directors, there was a controversy over the post of chairman. Some directors were accused of wrongly disbursing loans to keep their presidency intact. There was a dispute and two groups fell. Further investigation was started and stopped. But there is still the issue of wrongly distributed loans. It also includes related organizations of senior BJP leaders. Therefore, questions are being raised whether the present government will conduct a thorough investigation into the affairs and take action against the culprits.
I have not yet received the inquiry report of the District Bank. It will be appropriate to talk about it after he arrives. The bank is functioning well. Therefore, the inquiry will not affect the bank.
– Come on. Mansingrao Naik
Chairman- District Central Bank.
Despite the difficulties like corona, demonetisation, flood, the bank turned from loss to profit. So far there have been various inquiries with the ED. Nothing was found. This kind of thing is going on only because of political grudges.
