KSFC staff covet lucrative postings in Palike, BDA

Officials get ‘specially created’ posts

The staff of the Karnataka State Finance Corporation (KSFC) seem to have made it a habit to get plum posts for themselves in the City’s civic bodies.

A number of cases had been brought to light by Corporators, of KSFC personnel being deputed to posts that do not suit their qualification. It has now been revealed that KSFC personnel have been deputed to the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA), that too for posts having no legal sanction.

The response received by B M Shivakumar under RTI and in possession of Deccan Herald shows that the appointment of two officials was not sanctioned and that the violation of law has, in fact, been admitted by BDA.

BDA appears to have ‘created’ a post of manager for its Electronic Data Processing (EDP) Cell by hiring Iladevi, from KSFC. She was hired on August 17, 2010, even though there was no such post. This is in contravention of the Cadre and Recruitment (C&R) rules laid down by the State.

BDA sources said Iladevi - who had earlier applied for the post of deputy secretary in BDA - was rejected by then Commissioner Siddaiah, for want of necessary qualification. She was then posted to the scanning department. “However, as soon as Siddaiah was transferred to the BBMP and Bharat Lal Meena took charge, a post was created specifically for her,” said the sources. It is alleged that the post was created for Iladevi due to her close proximity to political bigwigs.

In  addition to Iladevi, her colleague from the KSFC, N Bhaskar, was hired by the Authority as the Systems Manager for the EDP Cell on July 18, 2011, despite clear instructions from the BDA Board to hire a technically qualified staffer from the e-Governance department.

The BDA Board had, earlier in 2010, decided that the EDP Cell of the Authority needed a Systems Manager. As a result, the Board passed a resolution to hire a staffer for the post from the Computer Centre run by the e-Governance department. Eventually, BDA appointed Bhaskar from the KSFC on deputation.
