    The decision per se perverse and lacks understanding the scheme. The beneficiaries are selected in open Grama Sabha. Further scrutiny is through a sanction committee consisting of village surpanch, lead bank officer and another officer from Bank. The moment the beneficiary gets his name included, the transparency starts. There is nothing like fiduciary relationship with DRDA and when no such customer relationship commence with bank, when such relations were nipped in the bud when application was rejected. . There is a controlling statement on No.of beneficiaries identified, selected, sanctioned, grounded, pending for grounding etc. Such sanction communication/ rejection is sent to DRDA, which again is not held by them under fiduciary relationship. Appellant has not placed his arguments properly before IC.. Every thing is transparent in subsidy schemes, whether the subsidy is granted or not is a different issue. Whether eligible /deserving candidates were selected in the scheme or not, whether rejections were made by higher authority over sanctioning authority of the bank on valid grounds are the only issues.
