The Supreme Court today admitted for hearing an appeal by Indian Forest Service officer Sanjiv Chaturvedi against withdrawal of work allocated to him after he joined AIIMS on deputation in 2012.

A bench comprising Justices J Chelameswar and A M Sapre also sought responses from the Centre, All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and the Central Vigilance Commission on the plea of the officer who has alleged that he was not given any work at the premier institution despite having an exemplary service record.

Chaturvedi has filed the appeal against the June 27 decision of the Delhi High Court.

The High Court had upheld the decision of the Central administrative Tribunal (CAT) that the government has the discretion to either allot or withdraw work from its employee.

Chaturvedi, who has now joined the Uttarakhand Forest Department, had a running feud with the authorities during his deputation in AIIMS where he was serving as the chief vigilance officer from 2012-14.

He had alleged that at AIIMS, the only work he was doing was to sign pension cheques and all other allocated assignments were withdrawn on the orders of the institute director.

He had challenged the work withdrawal order, saying “it is an attempt to humiliate him for his action against corrupt practices in the institute.”
