Sanjiv Chaturvedi, currently deputy secretary at the institute, was removed as CVO by the AIIMS director in August 2014 before the completion of his tenure.
He approached the tribunal on May 25, demanding that all work, for which deputy secretary’s post at the AIIMS was created, should be allocated to him.
As per the union health ministry order dated June 23, 2011, an officer joining the post of deputy secretary was to be given the post of CVO for several tasks, including monitoring and supervision of ongoing infrastructure projects at the institute.
Chaturvedi, a 2002-batch Indian Forest Service officer, also demanded that the health ministry order should be immediately implemented as he was totally “jobless” for the past one year after his removal from the CVO post.
The court fixed October 15 as the next date of hearing in the case.
