Deptts fail to create internal anti-corruption mechanism

Early Times Report
SRINAGAR, Jan 12: Government departments in Jammu and Kashmir have failed to create an internal mechanism to probe the complaints of corruption against the tainted officials.
Official sources said that departments were directed several times by the government to create an internal mechanism for the probe. "But there has been poor response from the departments," an official said.
The official said that it was not possible for anti-graft bodies to hold probe about corruption in every department. "We don't have much power to cover all the departments," an official of the State Vigilance Organisation said.
The official said that departments should take measures to stop corruption in their respective departments instead remaining dependent on anti-graft bodies.
As per Civil Service Conduct Rules, it is mandatory for departments to hold their own enquiries against the tainted officials and take action against officials if found guilty without waiting on the outcome of the probe conducted by anti-graft bodies.
The anti-graft bodies-State Vigilance Organization, Crime Branch, have been holding enquiries in corruption cases, the departments are not holding their own probe in most corruption cases, officials said. "In 90 percent cases, the departments don not hold parallel enquiries against tainted officials that is violation of the Civil Service Conduct Rules," an official of the General Administration Department said.
The official said, the government has directed departments to hold their own enquiries against tainted officials once the anti-graft bodies register an FIR or even initiate preliminary enquiries against officials facing corruption charges. "Due to non-holding of departmental probe, there is no mention of corruption charges in annual performance reports of these officials. The government's directives asking departments to hold own enquiries will also help the government to take action against tainted officials without waiting for outcome of probes carried out by anti-graft bodies," the official said.
The departmental vigilance officers and district vigilance officers were also directed to adopt multi dimensional approach to check allegations of corruption against government officials. The duties of departmental vigilance officers and district vigilance officers are explicitly defined in Jammu and Kashmir State Vigilance Commission Rules, 2013. Their role is to check corruption in departments even based on any media report.
An official of SVO said, "Once the SVO look into the subject of the complaint, we sometime ask departments to hold own probe and send us the report. There are departmental vigilance officers who hold the probe in their respective department."
Further, the departments have also been directed by the government to act on the probe reports of anti-graft bodies.
Sources said the lack of coordination by the departments with the anti-graft body was also putting halt to act against the tainted officials.
"The departments have been delaying to act against tainted officials despite the SVO seeking action against them after submitting their reports. Most of the departments have not been following the directions of the anti-graft bodies in corruption cases," the official said.
