High Court issues notice to CS, Commissioner Secy Health

APPOINTMENT OF DIRECTOR HEALTH SERVICES KASHMIR

D A RASHID

Srinagar, Jan 3: Disapproving of government’s “tardy approach” of making placement against the post of Director Health Services Kashmir on substantive basis, Jammu and Kashmir High Court has granted three months to the Chief Secretary and Commissioner Secretary Health and Medical Education to fill up the post.
 A division bench of the High Court comprising Justice Virender Singh and Justice Muzaffar Hussain Attar while passing direction on an appeal asked the respondents to fill up the post in keeping with Jammu and Kashmir Health and Family Welfare (Gazetted) Service Recruitment Rules, 2006.
 The Court, however, said any request for extension of time would be considered on its merits.
 Observing that the respondents have violated the Recruitment Rules while making placement of Director Health Services Kashmir, the court held, “the Chief Secretary and Commissioner Secretary, Health and Medical Education Department have violated fundamental principle by not taking any step till date for filling up the post of Director Health Services Kashmir on substantive basis”.
 The court said it amounts to breach of Recruitment rules of 2006.
 The court held that the Recruitment Rules governing the post need to be adhered to saying lest it gives an impression that “CS and Commissioner Secretary Health and Medical Education Department are intentionally dallying on the matter so as to extend an undue benefit to any one”.
 Senior Counsel Bashir Ahmad Bashir informed that the petitioner had approached the court earlier and a single bench of High Court had directed the respondents to consider his promotion to the post of Deputy Director.
 He told the court that the respondents have violated the Recruitment Rules of 2006 in the appointment of Dr Rakesh Khajuria as incharge director Family Welfare and Dr Ashok Sharma as Director Health Services Jammu. He pleaded that the court had expressed displeasure for violation of the recruitment rules in these appointments.
 Senior Additional Advocate General, A M Magray informed the court that the petitioner cannot ask for his placement as A Grade Specialist and for further consideration as Director Health Services Kashmir on substantive basis in accordance with the Recruitment Rules 2006.
