Maharashtra Tribal Scheme Scam Amount Rs.6000 Crore

Maharashtra Tribal Scheme Scam Amount Rs.6000 Crore

The petitioner, Bahiram Popatrao Motiram, a tribal from Nashik district, has pleaded for constitution of a special team to probe the multi-crore scam.

The petitioner alleged the tribal development department, on the last day of March 2006, procured liquid protein without following the procurement procedure or floating tenders.

The liquid protein bottles were not distributed, though the amount was disbursed.

Further, the department sanctioned and disbursed Rs 6.30 crore on March 31, 2006, for supply of mats to Ashram School students. The petitioner said the record had been created by authorities for the supply of mats.

Against the price of Rs 200-300 per mat in the open market, Rs 1,930 per mat was quoted.

There has also been an alleged corruption in the distribution of cows and buffaloes to tribals, besides many other cases like fraud in the supply of diesel engines to farmers in 2007-08 and 2008-09.

Why all the scams are found and come into public domain only after public interest petition?

On Thursday, Bombay High Court division bench observed that
The irregularities happened during 2006 and 2009, when Nationalist Congress Party leader, Vijaykumar Gavit, was the minister.

The Bombay High Court has found prima facie evidence of “Rs 6,000-crore corruption” in purchase of materials for tribal development schemes.

The court has also directed the state government to immediately submit to the registrar general the necessary files pertaining to various purchases made by the tribal development department and its undertakings.
