Ensuring Transparency in the Functioning of DGR

Some allegations against officials of Directorate General of Resettlement (DGR) regarding administrative irregularities in connection with re-settlement/rehabilitation facilities to Ex-Servicemen have been made by some individuals.

Serious Fraud Investigation Office (SFIO) is yet to complete the investigation. Preventive checks and balances are in place in the re-settlement/rehabilitation schemes. However, to ensure more transparency necessary instructions have been issued and implementation of the same is being closely monitored.

This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Shri M.M. Pallam Raju in a written reply to Shri Ramdas Agarwal in Rajya Sabha today.
