Kiran Bedi to return money

kiran-bediNew Delhi: Team Anna member Kiran Bedi said the trustees of her NGO India Vision Foundation have asked the travel agent to return money to those organisations from which more money was taken. She was accused earlier of overcharging organisers with inflated travel bills.

“Trustees (of the Foundation) have instructed the travel agent to return the balance amounts forthwith. They have already passed resolution directing me to travel strictly as per invite. This leaves no room for discretion,” she said. She said travel agent Anil Bal, who is also a trustee of the Foundation, was handling the travel account and has been asked to return the money. Bal’s agency was handling the travel assignments of Bedi. The Trustees, including adman Prahlad Kakkar, Laveleen Thadani, Achal Paul, Pradeep Halwasiya, Amarjit Singh and Sunil Nanda, were of the view that she need not save money for the NGO in this way.

“I never handled this money. The agency issued the receipts and received the money. So the Trustees have asked the agency to return the money which is lying in the travel account,” she said.
