Graft-tainted Madhya Pradesh IAS couple Arvind Joshi and Tinu Joshi have been terminated from service, officials said on Tuesday.

The couple were already under suspension since February 2010, after an income-tax raid on their house, which led to detection of wealth in excess of Rs 350 crore and recovery of Rs three crore in cash.

The Joshis are facing cases for disproportionate assets under the Prevention of Corruption Act and Indian Penal Code as their wealth was highly disproportionate to their known sources of income.

The termination order was served at their house and handed over to Tinu Joshi on Monday.

The couple now have two options — they may make a representation to the President of India or go to the court against their termination order.

The order came after the Madhya Pradesh Government sent a proposal to the Union Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions for the couple’s dismissal. The Union Government accepted the state government proposal and finally terminated the couple from services.

    The good comes late, just by 3-4 years! And there are many other cases in MP, Maharashtra and other states where IT Deptt. conducted seize and successfully un-earthed huge wealth. But nothing you hear even in 15 years now.
