Srinagar: In its resolve to make administration efficient and transparent, the J&K government on Thursday retired eight officials, including four JKAS officers, who were “found inefficient and acting against the public interest.”

As per official handout, these officers/officials conducted their duties in ways which were unbecoming of a public servant and in violation of the established code of conduct.

The exercise was conducted as part of a regular process of scrutiny of records of officials who crossed benchmarks of age/service period.

“As per the recommendations of the Review Committee, the performance of 5 officers was found inefficient and their continuation in the government service against the public interest. Accordingly, Ravinder Kumar Bhat, JKAS, Mission Director RUSA; Mohammad Qasim Wani, JKAS, Regional Director, Survey and Land Records, Srinagar; Noor Alam, JKAS, Deputy Director, ARI & Training department; Mohammed Mujib-Ur-Rehman Ghassi, JKAS and Dr Fayaz Ahmad Banday were given retirement in terms of article 226(2) of the Jammu and Kashmir Civil Service Regulations, 1956,” said official handout.

“Similarly, three more officials of the Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs department namely Ghulam Mohi-ud-Din, junior assistant; Rakesh Kumar Pargal, junior assistant and Parshotam Kumar, store keeper were also given retirement in public interest,” it added.

Meanwhile, the government has also initiated several measures for human resource development of its employees in Jammu and Kashmir.
