'Babu is entitled to know penal action against him'

In a setback to the Democratic Front government, the Bombay high court has asked it to provide information sought by controversial bureaucrat Vinay Mohan Lal on the penal action proposed against him. "It's Lal's own case, as such he is entitled to know the penal action proposed against him. The information sought by him is not under the exempted clauses of the Right to Information Act. So, the information can't be denied to him,'' Justice B H Marlapalle and U D Salvi observed in their brief order. The government had initiated a departmental probe against Lal for certain
irregularities committed during his tenure as chairman and managing director of Cidco between January 2003 and December 2004. According to Lal, the inquiry officer in his report submitted to the government on December 20, 2006, had given him a clean chit. However, on December 11, 2009, the government rejected the inquiry report. Then the government had given a copy of the report, along with the disagreement note to Lal. Later, the government submitted the inquiry report, disagreement note and penalty proposed to Lal to the Centre as per the provisions of the All India Services (discipline and appeal) Rules.
