Press Trust of India Mumbai | Updated on November 12, 2017

The two-member inquiry commission, set up two months back by Maharashtra Government to go into Adarsh scam, has started its work and even received replies to notices sent to the members of the housing society, but it is working without any monthly emoluments.

The State government, which ordered formation of the two-member Commission headed by the retired High Court judge, Justice J.A. Patil, with the former Chief Secretary, Mr P. Subramanian, as member in January, recently got to know that the panel has been sanctioned some funds but some formalities were yet to be completed for withdrawal of cash, State government officials said.

Among other things, the commission has been asked to go into alleged irregularities in allotment of plot and grant of additional floor space index (FSI) to Adarsh Housing Society.

“The notification for the commission came on January 8. Around 20 persons, including the two Commission members, were appointed, but they are yet to receive their salaries,” the officials said.

The commission was expected to submit its report within three months from January 8. However, the resources, including office space, were given only in February.

Out of the 103 summons sent out, over 40 of them returned as many members had changed their residences.
