BHUBANESWAR: The Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA) assigned 20 additional employees to process information for the Task Force, currently looking into the irregularities in allotment under discretionary quota.

State Government set up a Task Force, headed by Additional Chief Secretary (Revenue), Taradatt, to look into the allegations of illegal double allotments under different housing schemes of the development authority.

The Task Force is due to submit its report of the inquiry, initiated at the beginning of August, by December.

In a letter issued by BDA Secretary Ranjan Das, mentioned that all the information pertaining to Kalinga Nagar Housing and Plotted scheme is required by the Task Force in two days. As processing thousands of files pertaining to house allotments is a mammoth task, the employees have been designated different assignments.

Out of the 20 BDA employees, mostly from the allotment section, 10 employees have been assigned data entry work related to the house ownership files. Remaining 10 officials have been directed to provide assistance to meet the deadline.

In a similar move, BDA had earlier cancelled the Durga Puja holidays of a few officials to process the file requirements of the Task Force.
