GOVT CAUGHT ON WRONG FOOT
THE newly revived J&K State Accountability Commission (SAC) has caught the state government on the wrong foot and pointed out some serious flaws in the placement of senior staff in the anti-graft body.
In its first official handout, the Commission has pointed out that the “present staff at the officers level provided by the Law Department is not sufficient and suitable to deal with the cases.” “The Secretary, Deputy Registrar and Assistant Registrar posted in the Commission by the government do not possess requisite qualification as provided by the regulations,” the Commission has mentioned. “Hence they cannot be entrusted with the job to deal with the cases. Other clerical staff too is insufficient.”
The Commission has observed that two posts of Public Prosecutors have been created vide Government Order No: 3081 of 2005 dated 16-03-2005. “But so far no steps have been taken to fill up those posts. With the result, no prosecutor is available to pursue the cases on prosecution side,” it observed.
The Commission has asked the government to take “immediate steps for allotment of a suitable building for the SAC” in Srinagar. “The present building at Sonwar is dilapidated. A portion of it has already been declared as unsafe. The landlord of the building has served a notice to the commission for vacating the building,” it observed.
The SAC has sought deputation of Judicial Officers and Deputy Registrars and sought immediate filling up of vacancies of Public Prosecutors and other staff.
