Subject: DHS, GNCTD continues scam under Anti-corruption & Transparent Govt. AND illegal creation of post of DGHS

Who is doing Unauthorized Expenditure of Rs. 200 Crores in Directorate of Health Services (DHS), GNCT of Delhi?

Respected Sir,

Dr. Avinash Kumar, undersigned Whistle blower complainant, sought information under RTI Act 2005 on dated 23-10-2015 from PIO, Directorate of Health Services (DHS) regarding (I) Duties, responsibilities, Delegated power under Delegation of Financial Rules for DGHS (II) qualification & selection criteria for the post of DGHS that an IRS person is selected as DGHS. (III) creation of post of DGHS and termination of post of Director of DHS, etc.

Earlier, the reply for the same not given by DHS and forwarded the RTI to H & FW Deptt., GNCTD and H & FW Deptt also not provided information. Latter on, Dr. Tarun Seem (IRS-1992), Director General of Health Services (DGHS) forwarded one letter on 16-12-2015 to H & FW Deptt, GNCTD to provide information to applicant.

Now, following information provided by H & FW Deptt, GNCT of Delhi that

  1. H & FW Deptt has NO such information about Duties responsibilities, Delegated power under Delegation of Financial Rules for DGHS.

  2. provided office order dated 19-10-2015 that “The competent Authority is pleased to order Shri Tarun Seem (IRS-1992), Mission Director, Delhi State Health Mission will look after the charge of DGHS on temporary basis in addition to his present duties without any extra remuneration.”

  3. Director of DHS post is upgraded to the post of DGHS who shall beTechnical Adviser to the Govt for public health and health services.

In another RTI filed by Dr. Avinash Kumar on dated 19-10-2015, Dr. Vijoy Kumar, Director, Central Procurement Agency (CPA) himself denied that “Director CPA has not been delegated any financial power; duties and responsibilities of Director CPA has not been stated explicitly”. Dr. Avinash has asked about total budget of CPA along with other information.

Now, following information provided by H & FW Deptt, GNCT of Delhi that

  1. H & FW Deptt has NO such information about Duties responsibilities, Delegated power under Delegation of Financial Rules for DGHS.

  2. provided office order dated 19-10-2015 that “The competent Authority is pleased to order Shri Tarun Seem (IRS-1992), Mission Director, Delhi State Health Mission will look after the charge of DGHS on temporary basis in addition to his present duties without any extra remuneration.”

  3. Director of DHS post is upgraded to the post of DGHS who shall beTechnical Adviser to the Govt for public health and health services.

In another RTI filed by Dr. Avinash Kumar on dated 19-10-2015, Dr. Vijoy Kumar, Director, Central Procurement Agency (CPA) himself denied that “Director CPA has not been delegated any financial power; duties and responsibilities of Director CPA has not been stated explicitly”.

 Copy of RTI Dated 19-10-2015 regarding CPA

 Incomplete reply given by CPA

 Copy of final reply from CPA

HIGHLIGHTING POINTS:

  1. As per the document provided by CPA Under RTI,CPA has budget for Rs. 200 Crores for Supplies and Material for F.Y. 2015-16 and Rs. 95,70,000/- under Non-plan Head.

  2. Through cabinet decision, Delhi Govt. upgraded the post of Director, DHS to Director General of Health Services (DGHS).

  3. H & FW Deptt denied about any information of Financial power, Duties and responsibilities of DGHS.

  4. Director CPA has also denied about his delegated any financial power; duties and responsibilities.

  5. Mr. Tarun Seem (IRS 1992) appointed as DGHS on 13-10-2015 on temporary basis.

DISCUSSION

  1. Director General of Health Services (DGHS) post is an identified post of HAG Cadre under Grade Pay Rs.12,000/- in Central Government. As per my knowledge, there is no post of HAG, Grade Pay Rs. 12,000/- exist in Delhi Govt.

  2. Director of DHS is an identified post of SAG Cadre under Grade Pay Rs. 10,000/-.

  3. As per RIT Reply – DGHS as well as Director, CPA both have NO Financial Power AND serving their best services to Delhi Govt without assigned Duties and Responsibilities? It means Dr. Vijoy Kumar, Director CPA has NO Financial Power and H & FW Deptt is not aware of Financial Power of Sh. Tarun Seem, DGHS.

  4. Central Procurement Agency (CPA) of DHS supplies all medicines, surgical items and equipment to all Delhi Govt Hospitals. However, Delhi Govt. assigned power of procurement to Medical Superintendents of Hospitals only in Emergency conditions.

  5. CPA comes under Directorate of Health Services (DHS) and DHS comes under H & FW Deptt, GNCT of Delhi.

WHAT IS WRONG IN THIS CASE

  1. When Delhi Govt. UPGRADED post of Director (SAG cadre) to DGHS post then the appointed person must have Grade pay more than Rs. 10,000/- OR above than the SAG Cadre. However post of SAG cadre was already existing and NO mean to UPGRADE, if higher cadre is not exist in Delhi Govt.

  2. Whether Delhi Govt. has taken permission of Hon'ble Lt. Governor OR from DOPT of Central Govt. for up-gradation of DGHS Post which don't exist?

  3. When DGHS and Director, CPA both have NO FINANCIAL POWER (as per RTI reply) then Who is giving Administrative approval for procurement and providing Essential Sanction for the procured items without having Financial Power in Directorate of Health Services (DHS)?

  4. DHS post upgraded to DGHS who shall be Technical Adviser BUT not mentioned about Financial Power.

  5. How it is possible that Higher post of Authorities have NO Duties and responsibilities and In this condition who will be the responsible authority for any complaint/irregularities.

  6. Either H & FW Deptt has provided wrong information under RTI Act 2005 OR really DGHS has no Financial Power.

  7. Who is doing unauthorized expenditure of Rs. 200 crores in DHS without Financial Power?

  8. Who will be responsible for any complaint/Corruption?

CONCLUSION:

Delhi Govt. withdrawn Financial Power of Medical Superintendents of the hospital as mentioned under General Finance Rule (GFR) EXCEPT limited financial power. Major procurement power provided to Central Procurement Agency (CPA) of DHS. Director, CPA has no Financial Power even though he is providing Administrative Approval for CPA procurement & processing the bills. It is going on when he himself not aware of his Duties & Responsibilities.

However, parent department I.e. H & FW Deptt is not aware of any Financial power and responsibilities of Supremo of DHS i.e. newly created post of Director General of Health Services (DGHS). Above all, post of DGHS is created for the person who don't exist in Delhi Government. Then it is sure that an unqualified person will supersede the post of (Director General of Health Services) DGHS. Why it is done?

THIS UPGRADATION IS UNDER QUESTION AND NEEDS RECTIFICATION.

Sir, I request you to please conduct enquiry and take necessary action as per law in this case to prevent unauthorized expenditure of Public Money which is going on in DHS and illegal creation of post of DGHS.

Your's faithfully

Whistle blower Complainant
