Proceedings of the Board Meeting of Mysore lamps held
on 4/4/07 at 11.30 am at the residence of Sri
M.N.Vijayakumar,IAS,MD

1. In the proceedings of the Board Meeting held on
30/4/07 itself, it was decided to hold the next Board
Meeting on 4/5/07 at 11.30 am at the residence of the
Managing Director Sri M.N.Vijayakumar,IAS, to confirm
the proceedings of the 30/4/07 Board Meeting.
Immediately after the Board Meeting, proceedings were
put on this website and hard copies were delivered to
the Principal Secretary, C&I Department and the Chief
Secretary to Government of Karnataka for taking
further action as per the proceedings

2. Sri M.N.Vijayakumar also briefed the Board about
the developments that have taken so far starting from
the malicious transfer made on 24/2/07 to prevent him
from giving a transparent system which would have
enabled to expose the corrupt also. This was mainly
done to protect the corrupt and to harm Sri
M.N.Vijayakumar for reporting serious corrupt
practices of senior IAS officers causing crores of
rupees loss to the public and those corrupt officers
have been allowed to continue to cause further loss to
the public. Because of this Sri M.N.Vijayakumar is
facing many threats which he has brought to the notice
of the Chief Secretary many times in writing. Please
visit the website http://bngregcommr.freespaces.com
for more details. Both the Chief Secretary and the
Principal were requested in writing by Sri
M.N.Vijayakumar , to provide office space and staff on
28/2/07 so that he could start plugging loop holes to
generate funds for revival of closed companies and
asked his terms and conditions of deputation to be
suitably made to provide all facilities and staff as
Mysore Lamps is totally bankrupt and is not at all
able to give him any of the facilities sought by him.
Till today none of the facilities sought by Sri
M.N.Vijayakumar have been provided. Because of these
(total lack of facilities and threats) Sri
M.N.Vijayakumar informed both the C&I Department and
the Chief Secretary that he would work from home. He
also informed that the Principal Secretary was
repeatedly informed not to accept his posting blindly
as it was done with criminal intention. He also
informed the Principal Secretary C&I Department and
the Chief Secretary about his plan to plug loop holes
to prevent corrupt practices to revive closed
companies and these would have generated enough funds
to revive not only just Mysore Lamps but also other
closed companies. .Sri M.N.Vijayakumar also briefed
the Board that when reposting order was issued without
application of mind and as he did not get any
facilities he had to resort to seek information by
using the RTI Act He made an application on 29/3/07 to
the PIO, C&I Department seeking information within 48
hours on the grounds of corruption and threats. As he
did not get any information, he filed an appeal with
the Information Commission. Appeal was heard on
13/4/07 and the PIO was directed to furnish
information before 18/4/07 and the PIO was directed to
appear again on 23/4/07 to confirm whether all
information sought has been given. On 18/4/07, the PIO
gave partial reply (most of it again are wrong). But
the PIO did not appear before the Commission on
23/4/07. Sri M.N.Vijayakumar brought to the notice of
the Commission the incorrectness of the replies by
filing a written submission. In the submission he had
clearly indicated that because of lack of facilities
and threats, he is holding the Board Meeting at his
residence. The Commission ordered both C&I Department
and the DPAR to provide information sought and the
next date of hearing is on 5/5/07.

3. After these information were provided by Sri
M.N.Vijayakumar , the Board unanimously resolved the
following
1. Board confirmed the proceedings of the Board
Meeting held on 30/5/07
2. Board noted the efforts made by Sri M.N.Vijayakumar
to inform the Board of Directors through the creation
of website http://nomyslamps.wikidot.com/ and news
paper reports and his letters to the Principal
Secretary C&I Department from 27/2/07 till now for
revival of the Company.
3. Board specifically wanted to confirm that the
Company is in no position to provide Sri
M.N.Vijayakumar who is a Principal Secretary Grade
officer any of the facilities befitting him Board also
noted that for the same reason the Board never had a
full time MD as it could not provide salary and other
facilities to even a very junior officer like Sri
Somanna and that is the reason why he was holding it
as additional charge.
4. Board also agreed that the posting has been done
without application of mind and that Principal
Secretary C&I Department has blindly accepted his
deputation again with bad intention in spite of Sri
M.N.Vijakumar bringing to notice of the C&I Dept in
writing many times since 27/2/07. Board agreed that
Sri M.N.Vijayakumar is facing serious threats and that
he should be provided with security by the Government
as the Company is not in a position to do so.
5. Board also noted that as the Government itself has
repeatedly submitted before the Court that the Company
can not be revived there is nothing that Sri
M.N.Vijayakumar can do as per the provisions of the
Company Act.
6. Board also noted the serious lapses on the part of
Sri Somanna for not taking up asset verification as
per the circulars for closed companies issued by the
Department of Public Enterprises. Board pressurizes
the C&I Department to direct Sri Somanna to take
immediate action.
7. Board also agreed that Sri Somanna should be
continued and that he should be also posted as full
time Director, if at all Government is serious about
the Company.
8. As the company is totally bankrupt the Board agreed
that the terms and conditions issued by the DPAR makes
absolutely no sense. Government should formally come
out as to whether it intends to revive the Company or
wants it to be liquidated (as it had repeatedly
requested the High court). Sri M.N.Vijayakumar as MD
can not take any action in the absence of clear
direction from the Government, which is the owner. Any
revival should be talked about only after sorting out
technical, man power, legal and financial issues. The
Board has not been informed about these things nor has
Sri M.N.Vijayakumar been informed about it as is
evident from the fact that his consent was also not
taken before posting him as full time MD. Terms and
conditions issued for companies in operation, which at
least can meet salary and other requirements can not
be issued for a totally bankrupt closed company. The
Board is left with no choice but to agree that the
deputation of Sri M.N.Vijayakumar to the Company is
done with malicious intentions. DPAR should
immediately revise the terms and conditions of
deputation keeping Government's statement filed before
the High Court. The Board also noted that the present
terms and conditions of deputation issued by the DPAR
and information given under RTI Act amount to contempt
of Court
9. Board also agreed that it is the .DPAR which should
make necessary arrangements to provide all facilities
and supporting staff as DPAR has issued the order
equating the post of MD with that of Principal
Secretary Grade officer. Board makes it clear that the
Company is so bankrupt that it is in no position to
provide any facilities as per the terms and conditions
of deputation. Board also notes that there is no rhyme
or reason for posting a Principal Secretary Grade
officer as a full time Managing Director when there is
not even a single supporting staff or officer as
admitted by the C&I Department itself (particularly
when Government itself has stated before the High
Court that it does not want to revive the Company). If
Government is interested in revival Sri
M.N.Vijayakumar should be empowered as agreed to by
this Board in its 30/4/07 Meeting
10. Board noted the fact that the PIO, C&I Department
in spite of all information available, has given wrong
information to Sri M.N.Vijayakumar as is evident from
the above.
The Board concluded the Meeting and sympathized with
Sri M.N.Vijayakumar and authorized him fully to take
any action in the interest of the Company and also in
his own interest.
