Patna’s DM Chandrashekhar Singh has imposed a fine of five thousand rupees on the circle officer of Dhanrua. Along with this, a total of 21 cases were heard in the second appeal under the Bihar Public Grievance Redressal Rights Act 2015 and in the first appeal under the Bihar Government Servant Grievance Redressal Rules 2019 in his office room on Friday. Along with this, all the complaints were also resolved. During this, instructions were given to present a proposal to suspend the then revenue employee, who was guilty of negligence in redressal of public grievances, within 24 hours.

Circle officer did not redress the complaint even in more than 250 days

In the hearing of the complaint filed by Devsharan Prasad of Sakin-Muradchak of Dhanrua block, the District Magistrate found that no honest and meaningful effort has been made by the Public Authority Circle Officer, Dhanrua to redress the complaint of the applicant even in these days. His report is also not satisfactory. Napiism is not maintained in the Zonal Office. No letter has been given to the applicant by the Zonal Officer to submit the documents related to the partition. The District Magistrate said that due to this style of his work, the problem of the applicant could not be solved even in more than 250 days. He said that this behavior of any officer is against the basic spirit of redressal of public grievances and shows their arbitrariness, laxity and insensitivity.

Fine imposed on Dhanrua Zonal Officer for not redressing grievance

Expressing serious regret over this, DM Dr. Singh, while imposing a fine of Rs.5,000 against Public Authority Circle Officer, Dhanrua, directed the Deputy Collector, Land Reforms, Masaurhi to investigate the entire matter and ensure redressal of the complainant’s complaint as per rules. Along with this, he directed the Deputy Collector, Land Reforms, Draft to fix responsibility against the guilty officer for unnecessary delay and submit the report so that further action can be taken against the officer who is lax in redressal of public grievances. The District Magistrate directed all the concerned officials to be present with the action taken report on August 25.

Revenue employees will be suspended for illegally cutting receipt

On the other hand, in the hearing of the complaint filed by Vijay Kumar Sharma of Oiyara village of Dhanrua zone on the revenue employee of Sonmai Panchayat of Dhanrua, regarding illegally deducting the receipt in the name of someone else, the District Magistrate found that without the permission of the competent authority, the jamabandi has been wrongly established and the receipt has been cut. The first receipt on this jamabandi was issued by the then Revenue Officer Sanjay Prasad Singh on 20 September 2017 and the second revenue receipt was issued on 22 May 2018 by Revenue Officer Vaidyanath Prasad Gupta.
