Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - Live - - IN & AROUND -

CHANDI­GARH: With the re­tire­ment of two chief engineers of Chandi­garh Hous­ing Board (CHB) on Tues­day, the board now faces a crunch of of­fi­cials at the top.

The CHB now has left no se­nior chief engineers and is wait­ing for pan­els from both Pun­jab and Haryana. Mean­while, a board meet­ing of the CHB is sched­uled for Wed­nes­day, where the mat­ter of giv­ing ad­di­tional charge for the same would be dis­cussed.

The of­fi­cials in CHB in­formed that both the chief engineers have re­tired in ac­cor­dance with the Pun­jab em­ploy­ment rules.

The board had been de­bat­ing the re­tire­ment of both the of­fi­cials on the same day.

While GS Rosha re­tired af­ter com­ple­tion of full ten­ure with the board, SK Jain who was on dep­u­ta­tion to Delhi had sought vol­un­tary re­tire­ment.

Ac­cord­ing to sources, there is a vig­i­lance in­quiry pend­ing against SK Jain for tak­ing some un­due fi­nan­cial ben­e­fits.

The board meet­ing will also dis­cuss the re­vised bud­get of the board and take stock of the slum re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion.
