Accepting the Odisha Government’s recommendation, the President of India on Monday issued an order for compulsory retirement of tainted Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer Abhay Kant Pathak from his service.

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has been continuously emphasising on high-degree of morality and integrity in public service. As part of the policy of zero tolerance towards corruption, the State Government had recommended to the President for compulsory retirement of the 1987-batch Odisha-Cadre IFS officer.In November last year, the State Vigilance had arrested Abhay Pathak and his son Akash on the charges of amassing assets worth crores disproportionate to their known sources of income.

Abhay had been serving as the Additional PCCF (Plan Programme and Afforestation) since June 2, 2018.
