Irregular work in Aavin’s company: Cancellation of appointment order of 236 people…!

The appointment orders of 236 persons who were appointed in the year 2020-21 in the complaint of appointment malpractice have been cancelled.

Vacancies were filled through written test and interview for manager and administrative staff posts in 2020 and 2021. There were complaints of various irregularities such as giving jobs to unqualified people, publishing written test question papers and not inviting qualified people for interviews.

A team led by the anti-bribery DSP filed a report while investigating the complaint.

A senior DVAC officer told that if the interview was held on February 10, 2021, the call letter was despatched only on February 5 or 6. This means that a gap of only four or five days was given to the candidate instead of the mandatory 10 days.

The candidates selected under the Madurai milk union for the post of deputy manager, dairying) had qualifications of Bsc Home science, MA Sociology and PG Diploma in Nutrition while the required qualification is a degree with Indian Dairy Diploma (IDD) and National Dairy Diploma (NDD) or PG in Diary Science or BTech in Food Technology/ Dairy Technology.

In this case, the appointment orders of 236 people who were appointed in the past year 2020 and 2021 in Madurai Aavin’s company have been canceled due to the complaint of appointment malpractice. Also, the Dairy Commissioner has ordered to cancel the notifications for 147 posts.

After their appointment Aavin administration received multiple complaints saying that many unqualified people were recruited and given jobs in violation of rules. It was also alleged that the candidates had paid bribes ranging from Rs 10 to Rs 30 lakh. In July 2021, an internal probe headed by then managing director of Aavin K S Kandasamy found several irregularities and violations of recruitment norms prescribed in the Tamil Nadu Cooperative Societies Act 1985.

The internal committee also found that 48 posts of manager and deputy managers were filled through direct recruitment by district unions without legal competence. While top officials remain tight-lipped, Aavin sources said action has been taken after completion of scrutiny of records. “Orders will be issued soon for handling posts held by terminated staff,” an official said.

26 officials to face departmental action
Aavin has also recommended departmental action against 26 officials for allegedly colluding with the dismissed employees in securing the jobs illegally. The action comes after a DVAC inquiry
