The State Vigilance Commission has recommended to the Government to dispense with the interview system for selection in non-gazetted category of posts so that meritorious and deserving candidates are selected in fair and transparent manner as per their merit and knowledge.
This decision was taken at a meeting of the Commission held here under the chair of the Chief Vigilance Commissioner while examining the complaint of Abdul Wahid and the enquiry report submitted by the Enquiry Officer (Administrator, Associated Hospital, Jammu) appointed for the purpose.
As per the history of the case, Vice Chairman (CMO) , District Health Society, Kishtwar advertised posts under NRHM including drivers.
On making public the selection list, one of the candidates Abdul Wahid challenged the selection of Tariq Parvez and alleged that CMO demanded a bribe of Rs. 50,000 for selection, which he did not pay and therefore did not get selected.
To assess the merit of the case, the Commission got the matter enquired by Administrator Associated Hospital, Jammu, as Inquiry Officer, appointed by the Government on March 1, 2016, who submitted her final enquiry report on June 28, 2016.
As per the enquiry report, the marks awarded in the interview held by members of the Selection Committee, except Dr Sham Prasad (CMO), reveals that there is not much variation in awarding marks to the different candidates.
