Mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Tukaram Mundhe sus­pended Kailas Gaik­wad, a branch en­gi­neer of the town plan­ning depart­ment of NMMC. He has been ac­cused of neg­li­gence in work in two in­stances.

The sus­pen­sion fol­lows a se­ries of sim­i­lar or­ders ear­lier by Mundhe since tak­ing over charge in the city.

Ac­cord­ing to ad­di­tional mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Ankush Cha­van, “Mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Tukaram Mundhe has stressed on work dis­ci­pline among civic of­fi­cials and per­son­nel to en­sure that the qual­ity of civic ser­vices is im­proved and that res­i­dents get them in time and per their need.”

He added, “Dis­ci­plinary ac­tion is be­ing taken against of­fi­cials and per­son­nel found to be neg­li­gent in their work.”

Cha­van said that Gaik­wad had re­ceived com­plaint on il­le­gal charges for park­ing at Inor­bit mall in Vashi. “It has come to our no­tice that he ne­glected the is­sue and did not take any ac­tion on it,” said Cha­van.

He said, “We are in re­ceipt of a call­ing at­ten­tion mo­tion of Ma­ha­rash­tra state leg­isla­tive coun­cil un­der rule 101. It states that NMMC of­fi­cials have ig­nored com­plaint against il­le­gal park­ing fee and are not tak­ing any ac­tion against the mall.”

On yet another com­plaint against Gaik­wad, Cha­van said, “De­spite work on a build­ing struc­ture on plot num­ber 3 and 4 of sec­tor 19D in Vashi not hav­ing been com­pleted, he had sub­mit­ted a false re­port for is­sue of oc­cu­pancy cer­tifi­cate.”
