Talking Kiran Lokpal Bedi buys discount air tickets, gets hosts to pay full fare

Kiran Lokpal Bedi buys discount air tickets, gets hosts to pay full fare


Oh where art thou Anna? Your team is nothing but corrupt scoundrels! First Kejriwal takes undue advantage and loans from his employer Income Tax department, and now Bedi has been overcharging for so long!

Kiran Lokpal Bedi buys discount air tickets, gets hosts to pay full fare

Ajmer Singh Posted online: Thu Oct 20 2011, 02:41 hrs

New Delhi : Kiran Bedi, one of the most vocal members of Team Anna, who riled Members of Parliament with her Ramlila ghoonghat act, may herself have some explaining to do. The issue: the inflated travel expenses she has been charging NGOs and institutions which invite her for seminars or meetings.
Records of bills, invoices and copies of cheques with The Indian Express show that Bedi, who is entitled to a rebate on Air India tickets as a gallantry award winner, pays discount fares but charges her host institutions the full fare. She has also, at times, claimed Business class fare while flying Economy.

The Indian Express has 12 recorded examples of this, some of which date back to 2006 when Bedi was a serving IPS officer. Her last such travel for which an inflated invoice was sent was as recent as September 29.

Reimbursement cheques for these fares were credited to India Vision Foundation, the NGO headed by Bedi. Her chartered accountant Suresh Vyas said that what was being seen as a “mismatch” was actually a “saving” done by them — with Bedi spending less than what she was reimbursed for. Vyas said the money came in handy for travels for causes for which Bedi got no remuneration.

According to government guidelines dated February 2001, all gallantry award winners are entitled to 75 per cent discount on Economy class tickets on board Air India. Bedi was awarded the President’s Medal for Gallantry in 1979. Her GA (gallantry award) number is 433.

Consider these instances:

September 29, 2011: Bedi flew Delhi-Hyderabad on Air India (AI 560), then Hyderabad-Chennai (AI 546), in Economy class. The next day, she took a flight back to Delhi (AI 539).

BEDI’S CA SURESH VYAS: IT’S ACTUALLY A SAVING

“What appears as a mismatch is actually a saving for the foundation. This is how the travel money is saved with information to the invitee by economising the expenses so that the same is used for travel where invitees for causes of the foundation do not offer travel cost but are valuable to visit.”

BEDI: WE’RE TRANSPARENT, READY TO BE AUDITED

“We follow transparent methods of functioning and volunteer to be questioned or audited. Every penny in our work is accounted for and is for the facilitation of causes we espouse... We have been very conscientious of trust and responsibility... And hence punctual and meticulous in our systems.”

Re: Kiran Lokpal Bedi buys discount air tickets, gets hosts to pay full fare

If we can remember, team Anna wants NGO's should not be covered under Lokpal.

Further Kiran Baddy have spent most of her formulative years in Delhi Police - one of the most corrupt Services. She resigned only when she lost the top appointment due to herself involved in corruption.

Re: Kiran Lokpal Bedi buys discount air tickets, gets hosts to pay full fare

All this is a concerted compaign to one-by-one knock Team Anna members ..Sam ,Dam ,Dand , Bhed as they say


Dand to Prashant Bhushan & Arvind Kejriwal physically

Remember, Manish Tiwari saying to Anna "Tum Sar se pair tak bhrastachar mein range ho "

I would request Echarcha pai to come down to Delhi before passing comments sitting in California without knowing the realities ..I heard Kiran Bedi's speech in Dasshera where she had come at the request of the local organizers ..No airs , simple and tough ..She reprimanded people then and their who were shouting Zindabad and got down to business ..

Echarcha pai , Why don't you ask these details from Dear Silent Mode Singh ji whose ministers are travelling everyday in Business Class and had lot of problems adjusting when he gave a sham call of 'Austerity ' sometime back last year ?

Re: Kiran Lokpal Bedi buys discount air tickets, gets hosts to pay full fare

that child will become corrupt at its adult stage, because corruption is nothing but love of money.. So your excuse wala example is laughable, law to fight against corruption is not a simple process it will may take long time to bring effective bill rather than weak one with many error and only congress have guts to do that.. Agar BJP power me hoti to aise samajick aandolan ko communal banaake hawa nikal deti

So dumb!

The NGOs did not give her Rs 73000 to fly to wherever. She submitted inflated amounts for reimbursement.

Re: Kiran Lokpal Bedi buys discount air tickets, gets hosts to pay full fare

Was this elevated invoice just for air travel or everything else including travel?

Why not show the detailed invoice ? Numbers to mein bhi de sakta hun .

Isn't this obvious that a campaign has started to break up Team Anna ?

Trying to gather dirt from anywhere .

Congress has finally decided to sound power hungry . MMS still thinks that Hisar results did not undermine them . Continue Believeing that. Continue to dodge real issue and concentrate on breaking team Anna . Jab power mein nahi rahenge to rote rehna .

Of course! What did Team Anna expect? If you are pointing a finger at someone, make absolutely sure that your house is in order. Also obvious are the political ambitions of Team Anna members.

So!

She is expensing her travel, this is not a fixed travel allowance. She is supposed to be truthful about what she paid.

In your example if your mom has that Rs 17 she will better use for the family and may even give you a reward for saving.

If this were to happen in a corporation you can get fired for it.

This is regarding funds for the organization. .... either the funds are with her organization or her hosts will enjoy. If she has won some award and she makes it work for her organization, it is her organization that should be the beneficiary, not her hosts.
