Rajasthan civil aviation director removed

Jaipur: Civil aviation director Captain Kesari Singh had to pay with his job for the fault of the officer at the civil department.

The state government on Thursday removed director of civil aviation and chief pilot Singh from the post. He was working on contract basis since 2010.

The reason for the removal of the officer is said to be due to the failure of the department to follow the due process for the renewal of the multi engine helicopter contract in the service of VIPs.

Recently, the state government had transferred secretary GAD Pritam B Yashwant to the department of enquires.

But Singh had to pay for the fault of the officer with his job despite he had reminded the officer at GAD and civil aviation of the due process and put up the file on time.

According to the information accessed by TOI shows Singh had informed the department on July 2 that the contract for the multi-engine chopper is expiring on August 12 this year and appropriate steps be initiated for the renewal of the same.

He had drawn the attention of the officer that the purchasing committee meeting held on June 23 had decided to obtain the consent of the operator M/s Air Charter Service to extend the contract for the same terms and conditions and place it before the committee within three days.
