Governor's admin bans contractual engagements
'Erstwhile regimes issued many such orders but these were never implemented'

Early Times Report
JAMMU, May 24: Governor's administration on Friday issued a fresh order banning engagement of contractual employees in government departments but similar orders were issued by the erstwhile regimes in the past but these orders were never implemented in letter and spirit.
Today's is among a series of such orders issued in 2013, 2016 and now in 2019 but the engagements of contractual employees or one can say the settlement of influential political workers or close ones of bureaucrats has been going on unabated and these orders were merely for public consumption.
As per the documents available in public domain, on 28th of March 2013, the then elected government also issued a similar order directing for immediate discontinuation of the persons engaged in violation of Jammu and Kashmir Civil Services (Special Provision Act) 2010 and SRO-64.
The GAD had directed the administrative secretaries to identity and charge-sheet the officers responsible for making illegal appointments but till date none of the officers were charge-sheeted for making illegal engagements. Moreover the same words were repeated by the then Finance Minister Abdul Rahim Rather during budget session in Legislative Council.
Moreover after three years of the order, on 30th January 2016, the then Governor NN Vohra had directed the then Chief Secretary BR Sharma to ban the engagement of any fresh casual or seasonal labourers in any government department or state owned public sector undertaking.
Similar types of orders were also issued by various government departments separately but there was no let up in the engagement of contractual staff in various government departments.
Now in 2019, the Governor's administration has once again directed the GAD to issue the order but the content of the order is similar to previous orders. "The Ministers of successive governments have made illegal contractual appointments in various departments throwing norms to winds and even in some cases, some of these contractual staff members have also been regularized by the departments on recommendations of the ministers," said an official, adding that most of these contractual appointments were made through back-channel and have usurped the right of deserving candidates.
"The GAD's new order is a welcome step but it needs to be implemented and it should not meet the same fate as the previous orders have met," the official said, adding that those responsible must be taken to task by the Governor's administration. The present dispensation can do what the popular governments couldn't do in the past.
