IAS Officer Ashok Khemka transferred for ordering probe in Vadra-DLF deal 


After joining the office honest officer Ashok Khemka started to probe
detected serious irregularities in land transactions involving transfer of panchayat land worth several hundred crores of rupees to newly created real estate companies.

Honest Officer No.1 IAS officer Ashok Khemka was transferred as the DG Haryana Seed Development Corporation, three days after he ordered a probe into the land deals between Vadra and DLF on October 8.

Khemka had also cancelled the mutation of 3.53 acres of land that was sold by Vadra's Sky Light Hospitality Private Limited to DLF, after he found irregularities in the transfer of land.

The land deal in Manesar-Shikohpur reportedly had signatures by an unauthorized Haryana official

What is mutation?
Mutation is a record of the transfer of title of property between two entities. It is saved in the government's revenue records. Mutation does not mean a legal title to the person to whom the property has been mutated. 

Arvind Kejriwal also referred this deal 

Zee News reported that - It was alleged that Vadra, reportedly, bought the plot of land for Rs 7.5 crore sold it to DLF for Rs 58 crore and used the money to buy premium DLF apartments.

On October 13, he charged that the state government has "abruptly" transferring him, the 43rd in his career, as a "punishment" for acting as a whistle-blower in several dubious land transactions.

Khemka has now been posted as Managing Director of Haryana Seeds Development Corporation, which was last under an officer 12 years, his junior.

This is another example, which proves that India needs to change laws and India needs to patch the loopholes in law.

All Indian laws are filled with the loopholes, which are utilized by politicians, and they do their illegal deeds legally because of that no law can prove them guilty.

I understand from this report Ashok Khemka was a brilliant student. With his PhD, he could have been in a more lucrative job in private sector or in a top educational institution. But he chose to complete IAS and take up a job in the Government. He being an upright person gets booted all over and still does what he believes is right. I know he is not alone and there are upright IAS officers in every state and centre who get the same treatment. There is an IAS officers association in most states and certainly there is one in Haryana. When Khemka is threatened for what he did by being a conscientious officer, should he not get his colleagues to support him or have the Association talk for him - and get the protection for him and his family which the Indian public want him to be provided? All IAS officers are brilliant, otherwise they would not have made the grade - but only few stand up to the politician when he/she is wrong, many even if personally clean & non-corrupt look the other way when wrongs are done (classic example is our PM, a career bureaucrat who continues to look the other way even while holding the highest & powerful office)and then there are a few IAS officers who are corrupt and who teach the politicians to go about doing what they want to do. This small few are more powerful and ensure that the majority IAS officers toe the line drawn by the corrupt masters. That is because there is a lack of unity among IAS officers of the country. If only the all IAS officers in India unite under one powerful association and not cooperate with corrupt politicians - ensuring that they get the right protection for theselves & their faamilies which they can do if they unite - there will be more Khemkas in the country. They can probably eliminate atleast 80% of the corruption in the country. I appeal to all the IAS officers to consider this seriously - in the present mood prevailing in the country - you will have the public support.
