Three Assistant Engineers of Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board (DUSIB) were on Thursday put under suspension by the government for alleged dereliction of duty in maintaining night shelters.
A senior official said <g data-gr-id="29">action</g> was taken after CEO of DUSIB, VK Jain, conducted an inspection to assess <g data-gr-id="30">situation</g> on the ground in Chandni Chowk constituency.
Premises belonging to the DUSIB, particularly toilet complexes and night shelters, were checked.
“The situation was found satisfactory at most of the <g data-gr-id="25">places</g> but cleaning and maintenance of one particular night shelter <g data-gr-id="23">was</g> not done.
“It was also observed that the field staff was either not inspecting the premises or giving wrong reports. At another place, it was found that quality of construction of toilet complex was poor,” the official said.
These night shelters were not maintained <g data-gr-id="22">despite of</g> clear instructions given to the Shelter Management Agencies (SMAs) and the supervisory staff by DUSIB.
“After making an assessment of the situation, Jain placed three assistant engineers under suspension on the grounds of dereliction of duties and ordered an inquiry against them,” officer said.
