The IAS with 220 bank accounts attended 6 foreign courses in 4 years

THIS set of statistics is quite unusual, and even suspicious in an IAS officer’s CV. Babulal Agrawal, a 1988 batch Chhattishgarh cadre IAS and currently the state’s agriculture secretary, attended six short-term (one to two weeks each) foreign courses in a span of just four years between 2002 and 2006. From attending a World Bank training programme in Thailand and participating in a hospital management course in Singapore, and then attending management development programmes in Denmark and US, all in four years, Mr Agrawal remained a frequent flyer to foreign destinations.
But, as Mr Agrawal is now cornered by the Income-Tax raid revealing how he allegedly posses whopping 220 bank accounts opened in the names of his peons and maid servants, and with Rs 40 crore deposited in them, his frequent foreign junkets for attending short courses may also come under scrutiny, sources in the corridors of power said.
An MA in political science, Mr Agrawal served as collector in districts like Sehore, Rajnandgaon and Durg, and later became Managing Director of Chhattisgarh Infrastructure Development Corporation (CIDC) between October 15, 2007 and April 14, 2008.
After the suspension of IAS couple Arvind Kumar Joshi and Tinoo Joshi, both 1979 batch Madhya Pradesh cadre officers, post I-T raid, there are speculations that the axe may fall on Mr Agrawal too.

  2. THE APPOINTMENT OF CLASS I OFFICERS (ERST WHILE ICS) CONDUCTED BY OUR OUR EARLIER RULERS VIZ. BRITISH WAS BASED ON SELECTION OF THE OFFICERS OF BRITAIN WHO CAN EXTORT MORE MONEY FROM SLAVE COUNTRY (VIZ. INDIA ) FOR BRITAIN, AND IF YOU GO TO THE DESIGNATION LIKE COLLECTOR ( ONE WHO COLLECTS, COMMISSIONER ( THE ONE WHO OBTAIN COMMISSION ), INDIA EVEN AFTER INDEPENDENCE EXCEPT CHANGING THE NAME OF SERVICE AS IAS HAVE NOT MAKE ANY AMENDMENT EXCEPT ONE DONT HAVE TO GO TO LONDON FOR EXAM.

    OR RATHER TAKE EXAMPLE OF INDIAN PENAL CODE,1860, WHICH IS PRESENTLY OPERATING IN INDIA, THIS CODE WAS FRAMED BY BRITISH PARLIAMENT IN YEAR, 1860
