The Union government has suspended Coir Board Secretary M Kumararaja with immediate effect after an inquiry found out irregularities in tendering and payment process during the India International Coir Fair 2016. "After going through the reports, the competent authority has prima facie found that it is difficult to believe that these severe irregularities can happen without the involvement of the secretary, Coir Board," a suspension order issued by the MSME Ministry read.
