Govt sets up panel for scrutiny
Srinagar, May 22: Jammu and Kashmir government has set up an Empowered Committee to scrutinize the cases of adhoc, contractual and consolidated appointees for regularisation.
To speed up the regularization process, the government has asked all the heads of departments to submit the details of the appointees working against adhoc, contractual and consolidated posts and who are due for confirmation after having completed seven years of service to the Empowered Committee, headed by Commissioner/Secretary Finance Sudhanshu Pandey.
“All the administrative departments are requested to furnish the requisite information regarding adhoc/contractual/consolidated salaried employees working against clear posts within 60 days,” reads the circular issued by the Finance Department on 29 April 2010.
Official sources told Greater Kashmir that only those candidates who fulfil the criteria laid down by the government and are cleared by the Empowered Committee would be entitled to regularization.
There are between 5000 to 7000 employees working against adhoc/contractual/consolidated posts in different departments, officials said.
Economic Advisor to JK Government, Jaleel Ahmad Khan said the Committee would approve the cases for regularization after examining whether the employees were fulfilling the criteria laid down by the government for regularization of their services.
“The government departments will then separately issue orders for regularization of the employees whose cases are cleared by the Committee,” Khan said.
For regularization, an employee working as adhoc/contractual/consolidated must fulfil certain criteria including that he/she must be having completed seven years of service, should have been appointed against a clear vacancy, should have the requisite qualification to work on the post and should be a state subject. However, the employees, who fulfil all other criteria but have not completed seven years of services, would be regularized after they complete the stipulated time period in their job.
“They will be treated as regular Government employees only from the day their services are confirmed by the Committee,” said a Finance Department official.
Sources said the government was also mulling age relaxation to adhoc/contractual/consolidated employees provided they fulfil other criteria.
The state legislature had passed a bill for regularization of adhoc/contractual/consolidated employees in the last budget session. The proposed legislation was also given the nod by the Governor.
