Red-tape leaves IAS aspirants in lurch
State Recommends None;4 Vacancies Lapse In 3 Years
Jammu, Feb 3: The bureaucratic hassles and alleged non-serious attitude of the State Government has led to lapse of four vacancies of Indian Administrative Service (IAS), under technical quota, from Jammu and Kashmir during the last three years.
Well informed sources said the State Government was unable to shortlist candidates and forward it to Department of Personnel, Government of India, for the last three years despite vacancies allotted to it.
The State, sources said, lost four vacancies in the last three years to the tug of war between the aspirants and hassles created by the bureaucratic setup.
As per the sources, the Department of Personnel and Trainings (DPT), Government of India, had determined one vacancy for induction into IAS for 2009 out of the technical quota. After seeking recommendations from various departments about 12 officers were short listed but the process was left incomplete for some unknown reasons leading to the lapse of the seat.
The State was again allotted two vacancies in the year 2010 by the DPT but the State failed to recommend any name from the aspirants, sources said. “The Government issued a circular seeking recommendations from various departments but the short listed officers were not recommended”, they claimed.
The same process was again repeated in the year 2011 when one vacancy was re-determined by DPT. “This time again none among the short listed candidates was recommended.”
“Despite a clear policy of the GOI for inducting officers into IAS on merit basis, the State Government doesn’t want anyone to reap the benefits and encourage technically qualified and outstanding officers to be inducted into IAS,” one of the aspirants said, preferring not to be named. He claimed that the States of Karnatka and Manipur have inducted 8 officers within the past 3 years under the same quota.
However, an officer in the General Administration Department said that the vacancies lapsed due to the internal tug of war between the aspirants. “There were various issues due to which no one was recommended under the category”, he said on the condition of anonymity. “There are various court cases pending and moreover a number of aspirants from the Government-run corporations are also struggling for induction.”
He said that the State was expecting at least two vacancies this year and every effort will be made to ensure that the deserving persons are short listed and recommended.
