The said Principal floated quotation for different types of works which were purely technical in nature. Instead of executing the work through PWD (R&B). He by misusing his official position, charged higher rates for the different types of works and spent 23.13 lacs on 32 minor works which were executed departmentally on the basis of quotations. The comparative statements were certified by the committee members in a mechanical manner without any survey or application of mind. Neither the technical sanctions/estimates were obtained nor the bills/vouchers were technically verified. In addition to this, the mandatory service tax has not been deducted from the payments made to the contractors at different occasions. After the allotment of the works to the contractors, the CDRs were not obtained and PWD (R&B) was not consulted for the technical guidance.
