Panchayat chief dismissed

The Inspector of Panchayats and Tiruvallur Collector, V. Palanikumar, has dismissed the elected representative, A. Sasikala Anandan, from the post of village panchayat president, Gingee, in Kadambathur Panchayat Union.

Ms. Anandan had reportedly misused panchayat funds to the tune of Rs.3.17 lakh, issued ‘no objection’ certificates to unapproved plots for registration and used counterfeit miscellaneous receipts to collect taxes.

Hence, the Collector ordered dismissal of Ms. Anandan using the powers granted to the Inspector of Panchayats under Section 205 (11) of Tamilnadu Panchayat Act 1994, according to a release.
