New Delhi: Over the past few years, Ministry of Culture had been receiving complaints regarding alleged administrative and financial irregularities in Lalit Kala Akademi which is one of the Ministry’s autonomous organizations. The Akademi’s General Council and Executive Board are also non-functional since 2013 due to certain court cases. Also, the Akademi’s principal executive officer i.e., the Secretary is currently under suspension with departmental inquiry proceeding having been ordered against him by the Akademi’s Chairman.
Keeping in view the Akademi’s beleaguered administration and the substantial public interest involved in the Akademi’s vibrant and transparent functioning, the Central Government through the Ministry of Culture has invoked the relevant provisions in Lalit Kala Akademi’s Memorandum of Association for taking over the Akademi’s management with effect from 1st April, 2015. Accordingly, Shri K.K. Mittal, IAS, Additional Secretary in Ministry of Culture has been appointed as the Central Government’s Administrator for Lalit Kala Akademi from such date, until further orders.
