Chennai Parking Lots are Mafia Dens
Here are some facets of TEXCO which is Tamilnadu Ex- Servicemen Corporation. This is an organisation meant for welfare of ESM but employs ESM/ dependents on paper only and hardly any genuine ESM. The whole organisation is steeped in corruption and fool proof methods/ systems devised for siphoning off revenue accrued from parking lots. It is comparable to any Italian Mafia Organisation of the world but at comparably lower level as there is no violence and shooting involved. Does Army Resettlement Directorate exercise any control or have audit to check on who is benefiting from such a massive organisation with so much revenue? The post of General Manager is either an IAS officer or Retired Armed Forces Officer appointed by Tamilnadu Government.
Relatives are not ESM
I interviewed a dozen of the so called ESM employed in the parking lots of Chennai Corporation, not one of them was an ESM. When questioned how he got employed: answer was "I am ESM relative". How can a relative become a dependent? Another scheme of employing ESM for Aavin milk vending booths has died its natural death because of corruption. The ESM were forced to sell the booths to local thugs on a monthly payment.
Please read the laudable aims and objectives of TEXCO which is given in link below. There is urgent need for accountability and responsibility. The ground realities are not checked. TEXCO uniform and badge is worn by all the thugs. The ESM name is getting unnecessarily sullied/ tarnished/ smeared/ muddled with Mafia activity of thugs who really man the Chennai Parking Lots. The civilians get to feel that ESM are corrupt as they are cheated at the Metro Parking Areas. TEXCO
