Govt deptt diverts `1.2 cr plan funds to non-plan
Jammu, Jan 31: In a classic case of financial indiscipline, the Medical Education Department has diverted Rs 120 lakh from plan to non-plan to meet the requirement of a private contractor engaged for laundry work in Government Medical College and its allied hospitals in Jammu.
Official sources told Greater Kashmir that the department has diverted Rs 1.20 crore from plan to non-plan in Jammu so as to meet the diet and laundry expenses of the GMC and its associate hospitals.
“The amount has been diverted in violation of the codel formalities,” sources said.
“The authorities first diverted Rs 80 lakh in October. As there was no check at the higher level, in January they again sanctioned diversion of Rs 40 lakh to pay for the expenses on account of diet and laundry,” sources said.
“The expenses shown on account of diet and laundry at GMC Jammu were at higher side as compared to those shown under the same head at GMC Srinagar notwithstanding the latter receiving more indoor patients,” sources said, adding that the diversion was in addition to non-plan funds already sanctioned by government to the department for the same purpose.
Sources said the indoor patients registered at GMC Srinagar and its allied hospitals were around 76,000 till October 2012. “The GMC Jammu and its associated hospitals registered around 50,000 patients for the same period,” they said.
“However, there was no diversion of funds in Srinagar and the authorities met diet and laundry expenses from the non-plan”.
