Govt extends time for completion of inquiry in KVIB Appointments

The government on Friday extended the time for completion of inquiry into alleged unfair appointments made in the Khadi Village & Industries Board (KVIB) earlier this year.
According to an order issued by the GAD, the time of inquiry has been extended by one month.
A three-member committee headed by R K Goyal, principal secretary Home department, is conducting inquiry into the selection process which was marred by allegations of blatant nepotism and favoritism.
The appointments had created a massive controversy last month, with netizens and political quarters questioning the selection process.
Apart from Goyal, Pawan Kotwal,(principal secretary Health and Medical Education department, and Farooq Ahmad Shah, secretary School Education department, are part of the panel.
