Hyderabad: Ranga Reddy district officials are likely to issue suspension orders against the sarpanches of four gram panchayats located around the city for allegedly issuing approvals to 102 illegal layouts.

Sources said their involvement was confirmed by an inquiry held under the supervision of the district panchayat officer, Dr. J. Aruna, after complaints were lodged by officials from the Directorate of Town and Country Planning.

 

The report has been submitted to the collector who would issue show-cause notices seeking explanation why the government does not suspend them from their services. Officials would also take action against 32 sarpanches who were issued showcause notices on various violations in the districts.

Manikonda sarpanch K. Narender Reddy along with an ex-sarpanch and a few panchayat officials received notices last year for misusing Rs 63 lakh. The then DPO found that three panchayat raj officials had misused about Rs 2.5 crore of funds.

Ex-sarpanch Narender of Puppalguda, also in the IT corridor, was issued a showcause notice for allegedly misusing Rs 1.1 crore. The government issued notices to secretary Sathyapal Reddy for misusing Rs 4.69 crore funds.

 

Kismathpur sarpanch Jayasree was also issued a notice for misusing powers last year. The district administration is also concentrating on a few division-level panchayat officers who did not maintain records and prepare audit reports.

As per the rulebook, these officials must send quarterly reports of panchayats which have more than Rs 5 lakh revenue. Officials said that audit reports related to more than 300 gram panchayats were not sent by these officers.
