243 and 246, both dated July 23, 2019, the Municipal Commissioner wrote to the Principal Secretary, Local Government Department, to suspend Rahul Kumar and Kuljit Singh Mangat, both building inspectors in Zone A and Zone C respectively.
However, the government remained unmoved and no action has been taken against the erring officials till now.
Further, it has been alleged that the inspector connived with owners of eight buildings in blocks 25 and 32 (1) which were constructed in violation of parking norms, FAR and building bylaws, thereby causing financial loss to the MC.
“At the same time, he had failed to stop construction of illegal buildings at preliminary stage in Guru Vihar, Gehlewal and Kaliash Nagar localities which damaged the image of MC and also caused financial loss,” the MC Commissioner asserted.
Sabharwal has called upon the government to dig out the truth about the absence of the said building inspector at MC in Ludhiana.
