CBI to probe NIT appointments
Srinagar, Jan 22: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has launched an inquiry in a case of alleged discrepancies in the appointments of teaching faculties and officers at the National Institute of Technology, Srinagar.
Sources told Greater Kashmir the CBI sleuths were inquiring the appointment of associate professors, assistant professors, professors and some officers at the NIT in 2007.
Sources said the CBI started the investigations after it received a representation alleging that the authorities violated the recruitment norms while making the appointments in different fields, including Computer Sciences and Information Technology. The probe, sources said, commenced some 15 days back. “The CBI sleuths are holding regular meetings with the faculty members and the NIT authorities.
They are seeking full details about how the appointments were made,” they added.
In a couple of streams, sources said, “some deserving and well-qualified” candidates were dropped by the selection committee, without assigning any reason. The candidates reportedly brought the issue to the notice of the CBI.
Sources said the CBI was examining the case, and may come up with its prima facie findings next week. “This time it is in the process of collecting all the requisite documents pertaining to the appointments,” they added.
Sources said the representation also mentions that there has been some “discrepancy” in the promotions made through the Career Advancement Scheme.
When contacted, the NIT Registrar, refused to comment on the issue. The Director, NIT, didn’t respond to repeated calls.
