Sri. E.K. Bharath Bhushan

Chief Secretary to Govt of Kerala


Respected Sir,

Sub : Impersonation and marking of fake signature of Sri E.K.Bharath Bhushan, Chief Secretary of Kerala. Assault on the honour & integrity of the office of Chief Secretary – redressal of damage as per law-reg.

Ref : 1) Letter No GS4-2002/2013 dated 30-09-2013 from the Secretary to Governor of Kerala addressed to me (copy enclosed).

2) Letter No108511/Infor3/2013/Fin dated21-12-2013 from Sri George John, Additional Secretary (Fin) to the State Information commission of Kerala

With deep sense of pain and anguish I submit this complaint to you on a matter impacting the very honour and integrity of your office, due to the most reprehensible act of the authorities in the Finance Dept of Kerala who caused to produce a document in the Kerala Administrative Tribunal with your fake signature, with brazenness and arrogance unheard in the history of the Executive governance of this state.

Thanks to the letter from the Secretary to the Governor of Kerala1st cited, I hope you are aware of the most despicable act of the authorities of the Finance Dept of having caused to produce before the Hon’ble Administrative Tribunal a Counter affidavit for and on behalf of the Comptroller & Auditor General of India, claiming to have been authorised by him to do so, in a case filed by me (TA No 6587 of 2012),. This claim of authorisation was found to be false rendering the above said Counter affidavit a forged document. The culprits in this scandalous and unlawful conduct escaped unscathed from the rigours of law as the Hon’ble Administrative Tribunal took an extraordinarily lenient view in this matter and gave an opportunity to correct this wrong of forgery of gigantic form and dimension. It was this remarkable human spirit of patience and forgiveness of this hon’ble Tribunal, which may be considered as a tad inappropriate by some other judicial minds, that prompted the authorities of Finance Dept to commit an aggravated form of forgery of having caused to produce a document with the fake signature of you the Chief Secretary of Kerala before this Tribunal. It is a matter of shock and dismay that the Chief Secretary of Kerala Sri EK Bharath Bhushan is not allowed by Govt to preserve and protect his symbol of identity and intent-his signature- by allowing trusted subordinate officers of govt to fake his signature. This is blatant violation of dignity of you as a person and also the top most civil servant and the first representative of the state of Kerala. The second part of violation is serious as it compromises the status and authority and also dignity of chief secretary which is a matter of concern for the citizens of Kerala. If this patent and macroscopic forgery is glossed over, the evil forces of the state secretariat of Kerala may go to the extent of promulgating ordinances marking the signature of the Governor of Kerala. Incidentally, I feel, I am also bound to inform you a most saddening fact that an Additional Secretary of Finance Dept Sri George John ,the designated authority as per the Right to Information Act 2005, made a bizarrely senseless and misleading claim before the State Information Commission, as per the reference 2nd cited, that a Joint Secretary of Finance Dept is competent to file counter affidavit before a judicial authority for and on behalf of Chief Secretary without his knowledge, approval of statement of facts and authorisation, in order to justify the acts of chicanaries committed in the above referred case.. Fortunately this officer has not claimed competency to these officers to mark the signature of the chief secretary of Kerala.

The aforesaid action of faking the signature of you in the document produced before the Hon’ble Tribunal was deliberate and done dishonestly and fraudulently with intention to subvert the course of justice. This is very evident from the fact that immediately when (4-10-2013) this gross misdemeanour of faking the signature came to the notice of me, an application was filed before this Tribunal with a copy to the authorities of Govt challenging the legal validity of this contentious document on this ground. But the authorities brazenly covered up this matter, instead of apologetically withdrawing this fake document, and thereby got favourable judgement delivered by the Tribunal, relying on this document with faked signature of you the 4th Respondent in this case. This faking of signature, I apprehend, rendered your office irrelevant. Moreover, ignoring this colossal fraud may engender a wrong impression that the marking of your signature done by someone else was with your accord and consent.

The back- to- back conduct of forgery methodically committed in a case before the Administrative Tribunal, by the Finance Department is a testimony to the sad state of the rule of law in the state of Kerala, that renders the concept of justice and truth in our state, a pathetic travesty. According to Indian Penal Code -a Central Act- forgery is a serious crime also in Kerala and this state is incompetent to decriminalise it for its convenience. In the circumstances, as a person aggrieved by producing a document with faked signature of you the 1st representative of the Government of Kerala, you the chief secretary of the Government, before a judicial authority, I humbly request you:

  1. to request the Advocate General of Kerala to take necessary steps to nullify the judgement and order dated 8-10-2013 in TA No 6587 of 2012 before the Hon’ble Kerala Administrative Tribunal and reopen/revive the case as it is delivered relying on a document with your faked signature.
  1. to initiate process of law against those who are guilty in having caused to produce a document with your faked signature before the Hon’ble Kerala Administrative Tribunal, and thereby safeguard the honour and integrity of the office of Chief Secretary.

I will be grateful to you if I am graced by your office with an early response on this very serious matter of rule of law and good governance of our state. I will be more grateful to you if I am given an opportunity to explain to you the whole matter in person.

Dated the 10th day January 2014.

Yours faithfully
