ISM repeats blunder
Flouts Procedure In Issuing Certificates Of Dawasaz Diploma
D A RASHID
Srinagar, Jan 4: Even though the State Government cancelled list of nearly 1000 candidates in 2008 owing to faulty procedure, the Divisional Pharmacist Board, subsidiary of Indian System of Medicine, has admitted hundreds of candidates for Dawasaz Diploma Training clandestinely by issuing certificates, official documents reveal.
Sources privy to the officers who issued the certificates revealed to Greater Kashmir that the Diploma certificates were issued in favour of the blue eyed candidates with out inviting applications through a proper advertisement.
In 2008, Health and Medical Education department had cancelled the list of 994 candidates who were selected through nomination for Dawasaz Training course after departmental investigation confirmed that they were selected without norms required for the selection.
The selection list was issued after Director Indian system of medicine vide letter no.DISM/Trngs/3036-37 dated 29/02/08, had sent a communication to government wherein in was said that 500 Dawasaz(ISM Pharmacists) in various health centers of ISM under NRHM were needed. But, the list was nullified by the government later as norms were not followed in these admissions.
Following the government decision to cancel the list vide order no.121/HME/GR on October 17,2008, the health and medical education department did not issue any notification for the diploma courses.
Since 2008 when the certificates were cancelled, the DPB has issued hundreds of Dawasaz diploma certificates, in favour of the candidates illegally (scores of certificates lie with Greater Kashmir).
In Jammu and Kashmir, there is no institute which imparts training to the candidates as Dawasaz under ISM.
Minister of State for Health and Medical Education Javid Ahmad Dar said, “I have no knowledge about the matter and I will comment only after seeking records from the director”.
He, however, said the list cancelled in 2008 was framed in violation of rules and the government had to cancel it outrightly.
