JAMMU, Feb 20: The successive heads of Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education (JKBOSE) have failed to recover the liabilities to the tune of over Rs 125 Crores from the School Education department. The Board is reportedly on the course of become another white elephant, if strong measures are not taken to clear the liabilities.
Sources informed Early Times that the JKBOSE is an independent institution which managed all its financial requirements from the funds, generated by the examination fee it charged from students of various classes.
The state government didn't provide it any type of grant-in-aid to the Board but the government interference in the Board could not be ruled out.
"On the request of Chief Education Officers (CEOs), the JKBOSE purchase books, which are provided to students of all government schools under the scheme of Sarav Shiksha Abhiyaan free of cost" , sources said, adding that for the last many years, the CEOs used to project high demand but when it came to pay the bills, they failed to clear all liabilities.
"In this way the liabilities of the School Education department started piling up from few Crores of rupees but it was not the case of single CEO but most of the CEO, did the same thing and in the last few years the liabilities have gone to over Rs. 125 Crores", sources in the administration pleading anonymity informed.
They further said that time and again the employees of Board had raised the issue with the successive Chairman's of the Board to take up matter with School Education department. "Instead of taking the matter and recover the pending money, none of the Chairman raise voice vigorously", sources said, adding that the financial situation of JKBOSE has become so fragile that if there would be no serious efforts to recover the liabilities, the Board would failed to even pay salaries and pensions to its employees.
Insiders further alleged that the successive heads of the Board had also done other embezzlements in collusion with the officials of government departments. "To get huge commission from the printers, these officials were also in favour of more printing. More the printing, more the commission money", the insiders alleged, adding that a financially independent institution has been pushed towards becoming a white-elephant, thanks to the non-serious approach of successive Chairman.
Incharge Chairman of JKBOSE, Prof. Veena Pandita admitted that the liabilities have crossed over Rs. 100 Crores and the issue was taken up with the Education Minister. "Today they had visited the JKBOSE office and the matter was taken up with them. They assured us that the matter would be taken up with the Chief Minister, Planning Department and other concerned departments to resolve the issue of liabilities", she said.
