Govt Yet To Decide On Empowered Committee Meet
Jammu, Mar 8: The establishment of State Vigilance Commission in Jammu and Kashmir has once again landed in cold storage as despite having invited the nominations, the government was yet to make any headway in this direction.
Official sources told Greater Kashmir that the General Administration Department (GAD) has compiled the list of the intending in-service and retired officers who have applied for being appointed as Chief Vigilance Commissioner and Vigilance Commissioners. “Twenty nominations were received from in-service and retired officers of various government departments and after completion of the necessary formalities the list has been forwarded to the government for necessary instructions,” a GAD official said.
He said that despite the intimation to all the 34 government departments, nominations were preferred only by two departments, GAD and Home. The list has been forwarded along with the Vigilance Clarification Report, Annual Performance Report (APR) and Annual Confidential Report (ACR) of each candidate, he added.
It was reliably learnt that the file was now lying in the Chief Minister’s Secretariat as it has to go to the Empowered Committee for final nod.
“Government was yet to take any decision on when the meeting of the Empowered Committee is to be held”, sources claimed adding that the matter will further linger on due to the ongoing budget session. “The session is to be followed by urban local bodies election and it is unlikely that the meeting is conveyed before Darbar move.”
The Empowered Committee is headed by Chief Minister Omar Abdullah while a minister nominated by CM, Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs Ali Muhammad Sagar, and Leader of Opposition Mehbooba Mufti are its members.
After scrutiny of the nominations, the committee has to frame panels and submit the same to the Chief Minister for approval and onward submission to the Governor, whose approval is mandatory before issuance of the SRO regarding appointment of Chief Vigilance Commissioner and Vigilance Commissioners.
The State Vigilance Commission came in force last year after the State Assembly passed the bill to set up the Commission in Jammu and Kashmir.
The Commission will be headed by Chief Vigilance Commissioner and will have two Vigilance Commissioners as its other members.
