Sharma claimed that the JEs get new goods issued from the store to replace the old equipment, but the old equipment are not returned to the store due to which the government is losing crores of rupees.

Suresh Sharma said a large number of issue voucher (store requisition) is pending to return in the stores. “In the coming days, the accounting of all pending vouchers will be shared with the Audit Department. Not returning old goods to store is a big scam. More facts will be brought to the attention of government,” said the RTI activist.

Suresh Sharma said the scam has been brought to the notice of the Chief Minister, Cabinet Minister, Chairman PSPCL and chief engineerso that the government can issue future instructions to the officials to stop this scam.
