Early Times Report

Srinagar, Oct 1: Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has registered a case against former executive president and ex-chairman J&K Bank among others for awarding tenders of housekeeping to a Mumbai based Company M/s SILA Solutions Pvt. Ltd by not following the proper tendering norms, causing Rs. 6,29,56,575 loss to the bank. In a statement, an ACB spokesman said an FIR has been registered against accused Surjeet Singh Seghal, the then Executive President J&K Bank (now retired), Parvaiz Ahmad, the then Chairman of J&K Bank (now retired), Feroz Ahmad, the then Assistant Vice President besides Sahil Vora and Rishabh Vora, Directors, M/s SILA Solutions Pvt. Ltd. along with the residents of 508 Olympus Apartments 5C, Altamont Road Mumbai-400026 on the allegation that the officers and officials of J&K Bank Ltd. awarded tenders of housekeeping to a Mumbai based Company M/s SILA Solutions Pvt. Ltd by not following the proper tendering norms and that has led to the losses to the bank to the tune of Rs. 6,29,56,575 from the date of award of contract. “The case pertains to allotment of tenders, for housekeeping of offsite ATMs, to a Mumbai based Company i.e, M/S SILA Solutions Pvt. Ltd, by not following proper tendering norms as provided the contract to the firm despite not falling into the criteria of any such allotment.”
Earlier, a verification was conducted by Anti Corruption Bureau Central into the matter wherein it was revealed that J&K Bank with HQ at Srinagar came out with a Pan India tender for housekeeping services in the year 2015, the anti-graft body said. “J&K bank officials in contravention of tender conditions negotiated the rates with M/S SILA Solutions Pvt Ltd. The tender was awarded to M/S SILA Solutions Pvt Ltd in gross violation of General Financial Rules (GFR),” it said, as per news agency GNS.
The contract of M/S SILA Solutions Pvt Ltd amongst other conditions included ATM cleaning and deployment of janitors. The additional management fee awarded to M/S SILA Solutions Pvt Ltd by J&K Bank was not part of original tender, it said. “The loss on the account of the tender has worked out to be more than Rs 6 crs. The loss is likely to go up as investigation progresses.” In this connection, the ACB said, on 17 September 2020, P/S ACB Srinagar Kashmir conducted search at the residential house of Feroz Ahmad Kaloo, Assistant Vice President J&K Bank situated at Mohalla Muma Khan (Kathidarwaza), opposite Psychiatric Hospital Rainawari Srinagar. “Incriminating documents were seized during searches,” it said, adding, “The investigation of the case is in progress.”
