The two clerks had been fighting over cupboard space for a year now. Finally, one of them lost his cool and threw out some 50-odd property files stored in the cupboard by the other.

The belligerent act finally got the attention of the Ghaziabad development authority (GDA), which suspended the duo and initiated departmental proceedings against them.

The GDA on Saturday suspended the two clerks — Pabbar Ram and Deepak Talwar — for throwing the files into a storage dump outside the main building complex. The files were recovered from the dump after senior officials visited the office and directed that the files be stored in the building.

The officials said departmental proceedings have been initiated against them. Both clerks are on deputation with the authority’s property section that deals with allotments, refunds, cancellations and sale of properties.

According to officials, Ram had stored around 50 property files in a cupboard allotted to Talwar. “For the past one year, Talwar had been asking Ram to remove the files, but he did not do so. This angered Talwar who threw out all the files. The files were later discovered by other staff members, who informed senior officials. The clerks should have deposited the files in the record room or informed their seniors, but neither did so,” said DP Singh, officer on special duty (OSD), GDA.

On Thursday, all the files were found dumped in the temporary storage area behind the law department. After senior officials were informed, they visited the office and directed all files to be restored to the main building record room.

“There were around 50 files, including 15 related to refunds for various properties. The other files contained photocopied records. Taking cognizance of the issue, the two clerks were suspended and departmental proceedings initiated against them,” he added.

Apart from the suspension, the officials also ordered an inquiry by Hanuman Prasad Maurya, OSD. If the charges are proved in the inquiry, the clerks may face stoppage of increment in salary or stricter action, officials said.
