‘Ration Card to Non-State Subjects’: CAPD Officials Involved, Confirms DC Kathua Report



The State Vigilance Commission while blowing lid off the bogus and multiple Ration Card scam in Kathua has directed the Dy Commissioner Kathua to furnish action taken report in weeding out the spurious Ration Cards from the District.

In a statement issued here Monday evening, the SVC said that earlier, while proceeding on a complaint regarding  bogus and multiple Ration Cards possessed by some inhabitants of District Kathua including by some “Non-State Residents”, resulting in misappropriation of Government ration at large as well as black marketing of essential food commodities in connivance and conspiracy with the officers/officials of CA&PD Department, which tantamount to criminal breach of trust on the part of officials concerned causing a  huge loss to the State Exchequer, the State Vigilance Commission ordered Dy Commissioner Kathua, for in-depth enquiry into the matter and submission of  report thereof.

“The report submitted by the Dy Commissioner, Kathua, prima-facie depicted series of omissions and commissions committed by the officers/officials of CA&PD Department a capite ad calcem,” the statement said, “The report further revealed that despite having adequate evidence, no action seems to have been taken against the erring officers/officials of the public distribution system in the District.”

The State Vigilance Commission, stocked over the siphoning-off of the government ration with the active patronage of the officials of CA&PD Department has directed Dy Commissioner, Kathua to take stern action against those involved in the scam and submit the action taken report to the Commission on the next date of hearing.
