Cabinet to meet today

Promotion Of IAS Officers On Agenda


Jammu, Jan 2: The state government is expected to clear promotion of around a dozen senior IAS officers in the cabinet meeting to be chaired by the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah here on Thursday.
Official sources said that Omar, who was out on a vacation returned to the winter capital of today. He will be chairing the cabinet meeting tomorrow at 10 am, they said.
It was learnt that the meeting is expected to clear promotion of nearly a dozen IAS officers.
If sources are to be believed General Administration Department (GAD) has proposed promotion of two IAS officers of 1988 batch, Arun Kumar Mehta and Sundeep Kumar Nayak for their promotion to above Super-Time scale. This will entitle them for promotion as Principal Secretaries. Manoj Kumar Dwivedi, Farooq Ahmad Faktoo and Shiv Dev Singh Jamwal are expected to be promoted to Super-Time Scale (Commissioner/Secretaries).
IAS officers of 2000 batch Sheikh Mushtaq Ahmed, Vineeta Gupta, Tushar Kanti Sharma Shahid Anayatullah are tipped for promotion to Selection Grade (Secretary).
It was also learned that Shahid Iqbal Choudhary and Sushma Chauhan were being elevated from Time Scale to Senior Scale.
The state cabinet may also take a decision with regard to the proposal of GAD regarding change of cadre of Munisha Dogra from KPS to Accounts. She was recently selected to KPS but because of her disability she is now being shifted to Accounts cadre.
The meeting is also expected to take a decision with regard to transfer and posting in senior rung of police department. The government had recently cleared promotion of around a dozen senior police officers but they continue to wait for their postings. A decision with regard to the holding of budget session of state legislature is also expected in the meeting. The government is contemplating to hold assembly session in the joint hall of assembly secretariat following the damage to the existing structure in a recent incident.
“The entire setup is required to be put in place for the session and it also needs financial support, which has to be cleared in the cabinet”, sources claimed.
