CAT chief not to hear cases of whistleblower

New Delhi, April 23

CAT chairman L Narasimha Reddy has decided to not hear cases involving whistleblower bureaucrat Sanjiv Chaturvedi, citing “most unfortunate developments” and other reasons.

Chaturvedi, a 2002-batch Indian Forest Service officer, has been contesting cases against the Central government over adverse entries made in his appraisal report of 2015-16 by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Delhi, and other related matters since 2016.

In August 2016, Chaturvedi joined his parent cadre of Uttarakhand after completion of his four-year tenure as chief vigilance officer — who acts as a distant arm of the Central Vigilance Commission — during 2012 and 2016.

In July 2017, Chaturvedi moved the Nainital Bench of the Central Administrative Tribunal, challenging entries into his appraisal report of 2015-16. Notices were issued to the Central government and AIIMS.

In an order late last month, Reddy said with each passing day, one complication or the other, related to these transfer petitions, was arising. — PTI
