Minister of Finance, Dr Haseeb Drabu, today announced that J&K Government is going to conduct a human resource audit of the civil and police departments of the State as a measure to improve efficiency in the administration.
The minister said this at a high-level meeting convened here today to take stock of human resource management in the State. The meeting was attended by chief secretary B B Vyas, principal secretary to Chief Minister Rohit Kansal, principal secretary Finance Navin K Choudhary, commissioner secretary GAD Khurshid Ahmad Shah and director codes Mohammad Rafi Andrabi.
The Finance minister said the audits, to be conducted by independent human resource firms which will be hired by the General Administration Department (GAD), will provide the State Government a database of the human resource presently employed with police and various civil administration departments.
Two firms will be hired through a proper tendering process to run separate audits of police and civil administration departments, Dr Drabu said, adding that the audit will determine the needs of the departments and compile a database of officers.
"The audit will provide exact details on the employees presently working with the J&K Government and the manpower requirements of various departments. It will go a long way in streamlining the functioning of the Government and ensure that professionals from various fields, who enter the Government service, are deployed in their respective areas of specialization," he said.
