Srinagar, Dec 14: The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) on Monday conducted raids in connection with embezzlement of food grain in Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs (FCS&CA) in north Kashmir district of Baramulla.
A spokesman of the ACB said this evening that a verification conducted by ACB revealed that Director FCS&CA Department Kashmir has allotted additional 500 AAY Ration Tickets (RTs) to district Baramulla with effect from October 2017 vide order No. 261-DFCS&CAK of 2017 dated 10.07.2017 under revised NFSA target.
The additional allotment of rice 5075 quintals (35 kgs / RT per month) continuously flowed from the Directorate of FCS&CA Kashmir to district Baramulla for 29 months from the month of October 2017 to February 2020.
However, the officials of FCS&CA department instead of identifying the additional 500 AAY beneficiaries, misappropriated quantity of additional allotment in league with their Tehsil Supply Officers (TSOs) and Storekeepers resulting in a loss of Rs 1,00,75,155 to the State Exchequer.
