Flawed transfer policy in Finance Department
40% ACCOUNTS CADRE OFFICIALS IMMUNE TO NORMS
Jammu, Dec 25: About estimated 40 per cent accounts cadre officials have never served outside the civil secretariat due to their proximity to power echelons.
Riding on their invincible monopoly and influence in the department, these officials are ruling the roost with their prolonged stay, ranging between 10 to 15 years, in various departments of the civil secretariat, in gross violation of the transfer policy norms, officials said on condition of anonymity.
Sources in the civil secretariat told Greater Kashmir that all accounts cadre posts fall under the Finance department and as per its transfer policy, after every two years or a maximum of three years, the officials must be transferred. “But in total violation of the transfer policy, about hundred accounts cadre officials are stationed in the civil secretariat for last ten to fifteen years, for the obvious reasons of enjoying the patronization of senior government functionaries and their political bosses,” sources said.
“Out of total Accounts cadre employees working in various departments at civil secretariat, more than 40 percent have never been transferred and if ever transferred, they are sent from one wing to the other within the civil secretariat” sources said.
They said that even the higher officials of Finance department were aware about the prolonged posting of these accounts cadre officials at civil secretariat, but they have also turned a blind eye towards the gross violation of transfer policy.
When contacted, Financial Commissioner Iqbal Khandey said that he would look into the matter.
