Early Times Report

Jammu May 13: The absenteeism culture in rural areas of Kishtwar District including Marwah, Warwan, Dachhan, Padder and Bhunzwah, Kuntwara and other areas has taken a heavy toll on performance of departments.
People who visit offices return disappointed, locals said.
The Early Times in its 7-1-2019 edition also highlighted major salary scandal issue that has surfaced in Marwah Sub Division of Kishtwar District where hundreds of employees posted in the area are withdrawing their salaries without attending their duties since years together by paying a part of the salary to the concerned DDO for felicitating the salary release, thus putting the role of DDOs posted in these areas under scanner as well.
Speaking to "Early Times" Deputy Commissioner Kishtwar said that in order to check the menace of absenteeism culture in the district including the areas falling under Marwah sub division, he had order the appointment of Junior Scale KAS Officer Mohsin Raza Ahanger who will report him about the daily attendance in the government offices.
He said that all the departments have been instructed to forward the daily attendance to him by 11 a.m every day.
DC Kishtwar agreed that there are numerous complaints on absenteeism in various government departments in rural areas added that the services of all those employees who are chronicle to absenteeism will be recommended for termination of the services.
"Any employee found guilty of being absent regularly will be considered for termination of services to concern authority, remaining absent regularly suggests that the said employee is not interested in his service and is fit case for recommendation for termination of services" said DC Kishtwar.
He warned the employees over continuous absenteeism and called upon the HoDs to ensure that the employees attend their duties regularly.
It is pertinent to mention that some of the DDOs posted in these areas turn millionaire by charging 20-30% salaries of the regular employees while in case of some employees, 50% amount of the total salary is being charged by the DDOs and majority of them are said to be the female employees and contractual employees.
The irony of these areas is that they mostly remain cut off from rest of the state during winter season beside these areas also lack communication and it is very difficult for the employees to survive in these areas due to harsh weather as well as non availability of electricity and communication in the area beside also due to non availability of proper food facility as these areas are considered as poorest and remotest areas of the state.
The sources said that non availability of accommodation is another problem in the area, particularly during winters as a result of which majority of the employees posted in these areas prefer to pay part of its salaries to DDOs instead of attending their duties.
