Quality of developmental projects under cloud as JEs call shots in DIQC

Early Times Report
Jammu, Jan 29: R&B in Jammu and Kashmir already known for its style of functioning has once again displayed how far it can go in violating rules. In one of its wings, Incharge AEs have been entrusted with the job of Executive Engineers.
According to reports, in Srinagar wing of Designs, Inspections and Quality Control (DIQC), few Junior Engineers working as Incharge AEs have been given full-fledged responsibility to run the show of the entire department. This is perhaps for the first time in the administrative history of Jammu and Kashmir that such gross violation of rules is being witnessed in open.
Insiders reveal that in DIQC Srinagar's crucial Road Research Laboratory, these junior level engineers have been given the gazetted posts of Deputy Research Officers which in clear terms in the gross violation of rules. The posts of the Deputy Research Officers are ought to be filled by the Public Service Commission and there are directions from the Supreme Court itself that no official can temporarily hold the post which is to be directly filled by the PSC. However, in DIQC, these junior engineers continue to enjoy heydays with impunity.
Reports inform that the blue-eyed officials have been finding the DIQC and its quality control lab nothing less than a gold mine as they besides holding the job in the department also run private consultancy firms. "These JEs are using the office to set up their own network of contacts so that they could divert the road and material tests in their own private firms. it is a big scam but the government hasn't so far informed about such violations taking place in board daylight under its nose," sources privy to the development divulged.
It was informed further that the Chief Engineer DIQC too seems to have given wide berth to such violation of rules and hasn't removed these JEs from their illegally held positions. "This is beyond the reach of the reason that an Incharge AE is holding a post for years together which is to be filled by the Public Service Commission. Also, such illegality is being witnessed in a department that plays a major role in quality control of the state's developmental projects. This violation has put a question mark over the credibility of all the tests conducted in the department. When you have an official holding the post illegally in lieu of hidden benefits, how could the tests that have been conducted in the office be trusted," says an official posted department's Jammu wing.
"As per the Supreme Court judgment titled Suraj Prakash Gupta vs State Government, the court has made it clear that no official can hold any post as Incharge which is to be recruited by the PSC. If any department is undermining such rules, it should rectify at an earliest," a senior official of the Law Department told Early Times.
It remains to be seen whether the Governor administration will act against these blue-eyed officials and show them the door or will allow them to trample the rules.
