Indian Dental Association JK Branch appeals Governor

The Indian Dental Association, J&K Branch, today said the post of Deputy Director Dentistry in Kashmir division was lying vacant for the last two years.

In a statement here today, the association said the eligible senior most graduate doctor was being denied the promotion under the guise of SRO 325, which they alleged had been issued only to benefit the junior consultant doctors.

The association said the SRO 325 dated 12 July 2013 was issued to pave way for the promotion of the junior consultants over and above the senior most graduate doctors.

The statement said the eligibility criteria framed for filling up the post of Deputy Director, Dentistry in Kashmir under the said SRO will benefit those consultants who have been appointed as recently as in 2010.

The association said the SRO was an injustice to “our senior most in-service dental surgeons.”

The association said despite their repeated representations to the government in this regard, “no remedial action has been taken.”

Dr Javid Qanungo, state secretary IDA J&K Branch appealed to the Governor J&K and the Commissioner Secretary Health Department to look into the matter.
