COMMON SENIORITY OF MEDICAL FACULTY

GK NEWS NETWORK

Jammu, Nov 17: Jammu and Kashmir High Court has taken serious notice of the suggestion made by a high-level committee, constituted by the government, recommending common seniority list of the faculty members of two Government Medical Colleges (Jammu and Srinagar) despite the fact that the contrary stand taken by the state.
 Observing that the recommendations made by the Committee, constituted vide Govt order dated August 8, 2011 to examine issue of common seniority of the medical faculty, and recent government order No 548-HME 2012 dated September 5, 2012 prima-facie indicate violation of the undertaking given by the state to the court, Justice J P Singh directed Commissioner Secretary Health and Medical Education, Secretary Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs and Principals of GMC Jammu and Srinagar to appear personally before it to explain their position.
 “Before proceedings further in the matter for violation of the undertakings given to the Court, the members of the committee are required to explain their position,” the court observed.
 The directions were passed by the High Court in a petition seeking quashment of order dated March 3, 2006 whereby seniority of the members of the medical service has been directed to be maintained separately in respect of GMC Jammu and GMC Srinagar.
 The grievances projected by the petitioners was that the order was in violation of Jammu and Kashmir Medical Education (Gazetted) Service Rule 1997 which provided framing of common seniority list of the member of each wing of the service including teaching, administrative and general.
 The court observed that the contention were not contested and the state counsel rather informed that the state was conscious of the provisions of the rules and had therefore constituted a committee to examine the modalities for making common seniority of state level for Government Medical Colleges Jammu and Srinagar.
 In view of the categorical stand taken by the state government in its objection and the submission made on its behalf by the State Counsel supporting the government’s stand, a time frame was provided by the court to the committee to expedite its deliberations for making recommendations to comply with the requirement of the rules so that these were implemented in letter and spirit.
 “After having taken conscious decision that a common seniority list had to be maintained for both the Medical Colleges, the State Government cannot take back its undertaking given to the Court to workout modalities for framing common seniority list to defeat the petitioners’ claim when it on its own had conceded and sought time for compliance of the rules”, the court observed.
 Taking notice of the recommendations made by the committee, suggesting separate seniority lists, the court observed that the members of the committee are required to explain their position as to how had they exceeded jurisdiction in suggesting different seniority list for two medical colleges, when the government order required it to examine the modalities for making common seniority lists of the members of GMC Jammu and Srinagar had not been withdrawn.
