Amid AIIMS claim, Jammu hospitals reeling under staff scarcity
Posts fell vacant years ago, helmsmen put fresh recruitments in limbo
2/19/2020 9:07:23 PM
Early Times Report

Jammu, Feb 19: Amid the tall claims of establishing AIIMS in Jammu, the government figures paint a dismal picture about the present health scenario in Jammu region with acute paucity of staff taking toll.
The documents reveal that the sanctioned strength of the staff at GMC Jammu is 5222 and that the posts lying vacant since years are 1847 in number.
The faculty posts sanctioned are 391 and out of that number mere 228 have been filled and 163 are lying vacant. The staff strength sanctioned under the category of ‘Other Gazetted’ is 459. This number pertinently was approved by the government to get filled. However, till date, there are 19 posts which haven’t been filled.
The approved Para-medical staff strength sanctioned is 933. Out of 933, there are 423 such posts that haven’t been filled.
In Ministerial staff category, the sanctioned strength is 284. There are 136 posts of such nature lying vacant with no action being taken to fill these posts that otherwise would have ensured betterment in the services being provided to common people by the government.
Furthermore, there are 535 posts of nursing staff that haven’t been filled. These posts are vacant in GMC. The sanctioned strength of the nursing staff at the health institute is 1475. However, there were mere 940 posts filled while leaving 535 posts of such nature vacant. The reason behind such an action continues to remain a mystery.
In Class-IV category, there are 1268 posts sanctioned. However, here aswell, there were mere 815 filed and 453 left vacant by the government.
Under ‘Safai Wala’ category, there are 412 sanctioned posts but here again, mere 294 have been filled and 118 are lying vacant.
Such a blatant non-serious approach of the state authorities towards the Jammu region of the state has proved just one thing; there is no stone being left unturned to make the region crave for the official attention in all fields.
Furthermore, as per the documents, there are no less than 1867 posts of medical staff lying vacant in Government Medical College Jammu with the dispensation acting as a mute spectator with inaction in this regard remains in vogue.
Meanwhile, as per the sources privy to this development, there have been least efforts made so far by the dispensation to fill the wide gap between the existing staff and the staff strength needed to ensure betterment in the health scenario of the region. “There was a file approved by the past government over addressing the problem related to the paucity of staff in Jammu hospitals. However, till date there has been no forward movement witnessed in this regard. The domicile issue could be the reason why the posts aren’t being filled,” sources within the dispensation divulged.
