The services of executive engineer GV Rao were terminated by Municipal Commissioner N Ramaswami on Monday. He has been accused for misconduct and initiating unnecessary development work without following the tender process.
A departmental inquiry was introduced two years ago against Rao, who was holding charge of the electricity department.
Avinash Lad, the deputy mayor raised the complaint against Rao on August 17, 2015. The departmental inquiry was initiated during the tenure of former civic chief Tukaram Mundhe.
Ramaswani said that his services have been terminated without affecting his chances for seeking job somewhere else because the officer is guilty for all the charges. He also added that this is the wakeup call for other officials who fail to do their duties.
