The remaining he has donated, with a letter to the AIIMS director that this money can be used for providing financial assistance to the needy, especially those suffering from cancer.

The officer, who has been transferred 12 times in the last five years, is known for this honest stand against wrong doers in cases of corruption, and also for being an active whistle blower in case of several scams. He was selected for the award under “Emergent Leadership” category for the integrity and courage with which he worked to investigate and expose corruption in public offices. He recently got posted to Uttarakhand from Haryana.

Chaturvedi, who is currently posted as deputy secretary of AIIMS, has also requested that a separate register should be maintained to record the details of patients who receive financial assistance so that the transactions can be kept transparent and the donated amount can be put to the best use.
