SAS/MPKBY agents had failed to credit the amount
collected from the depositors in to Post office accounts. But

(on 03.07.2013), one Shri. K. Subramani formerly APM(SB), Namakkal HPO
now at Tiruchengodu HO on transfer, has been suspended. The SPOs has
issued the suspension orders,reportedly, on the oral direction of DPS,

1. Fraud was detected in October 2012. Nine months have elapsed since then.
The official in question has already been transferred out of the office
and is working in Tiruchengodu HPO which is 35 KMs away from Namakkal
Suspension has to be done only if the official in question has any
chance of tampering the records or he himself committed any major fraud.
4. Whether the official in question is on duty or under suspension will not make any difference to the ongoing investigation.
5. The official has not directly connected with fraud.
discrepancies in Stock of Pass Books were noticed over the period. And
the suspended official is one among the few officials who is responsible
for stock of PBs. Divisional Heads who made annual inspections and half
yearly verifications have failed to notice any discrepancy and they are
not at all questioned/ held responsible for their lapses.)
official in question is an SC employee and lone bread winner in his
family. He desperately need the monthly salary to meet the expenses for
education of his son, who has joined in a private Engineering college

any further victimaisation of innocent employees by the administration.
