I'm an officer in Central Government. As purchase officer, I realized that there are many fictitious firms registered in the factory which are not in existence. I ignored these firms for issue of T.E. Another officer who was working in the factory and was indulged in cash purchases at exorbitant rates was against me. He is now CVO of the organization. He asked my explanation for ignoring these firms. These firms are non-existing. Moreover, I purchased the items at very low rates from the suppliers who were supplying similar items. I have few documentary evidences regarding non-existence of some of the firms. I want to take CVO to court for unnecessary defaming me. The firms I ignored are really non-existence. What is the legal advice. The item which was once purchased in the factory @ Rs. 1544/- was purchased by me @ Rs. 146/-. I have some evidence regarding these fictitious firms. Moreover, since these are non-existence they cannot be produced in court of law by CVO. I want to initiate legal action against CVO for defaming me. We know each other for lst 20 years - belong to the same cadre - and always had strain relations.
