Maharashtra cadre trainee IAS Pooja Khedkar is in the news these days. Pooja Khedkar is accused of showing fake disability and OBC certificates to qualify the UPSC civil services exam. Pooja gave this exam in 2021 and her all India rank was 821. It is alleged that probationary IAS officer Pooja Khedkar also allegedly misused power, due to which Pooja has been transferred to Wasim.

Puja had demanded a separate office, a car and a house for herself before she was posted as assistant collector in Pune, her WhatsApp chat with a collectorate official reveals. In the chat, she is seen instructing the official to arrange for her demands before she joins on June 3.

The chat shows that she told the officer, “Please complete the work on the cabin or the vehicle before I join on June 3. You won’t get time later. If this is not possible, let me know, I will talk to the collector sir about this.” The district collector raised these unusual demands with the chief secretary, in her report she suggested that it would be inappropriate to continue Pooja Khedkar’s training in Pune and said that this could lead to administrative complications.
