Early Times Report
jammu, Feb 22: The Jammu and Kashmir administration is all set to call an estimated 150 IAS officers from other Indian states with honest and upright service records to serve in the erstwhile state to ensure good governance and transparent functioning.
Reports inform that the office of the Lt Governor has been in constant contact with the central government with a team of senior officers selected who have been tasked to select at least 150 IAS officers with upright and honest background to serve in Jammu and Kashmir.
Insiders privy to this development told Early Times that the government is all set to take series of the measures to ensure change in the system of governance in Jammu and Kashmir and accord people a sigh of relief from dilatory mode of functioning which otherwise was ruling roost during the tenures of the popular governments here.
A senior official stated that a high level meeting conducted in the recent past deliberated in detail over the need for seeking services of more than a 100 honest and dedicated IAS officers with a clean record from Central Government. These civil servants as per the sources shall be given the responsibility of important departments and those with the direct public dealing. Such a measure is being taken in the backdrop of the promises made by the team of the Central Government ministers about ushering in a new era of good governance in Jammu and Kashmir. "No matter how many claims we make in turning Jammu and Kashmir into a hub of development and prosperity. No matter how many times we would promise people of transparent and corruption free government, we shall not succeed in our motive until and unless we wouldn't go for a massive cleanup at the bureaucratic level. In order to weed out the corruption in Jammu and Kashmir, you need to weed out the corrupt bureaucratic setup. The decision to avail services of atleast 150 IAS officers is expected to bring a positive change on the ground," said a senior official within the dispensation.
According to him, the communication channels have been opened up with various Central ministries and they have been requested to search for atleast some 100 most honest and upright bureaucrats who could serve various key departments in Jammu and Kashmir.
Pertinent to mention here that post the creation of union territory on October 31, last year, the government has been claiming to ensure good governance on ground in Jammu and Kashmir and accord people a sigh of relief from corrupt practices. It also claimed that it will make the governance more people friendly and will not be reluctant in taking any such measures which will make the dispensation more transparent and accountable to common masses.
As per the reports, the government is concentrating with all its efforts to take measures aimed at rebooting the entire existing system which according to the central government was plagued with nepotism, partiality and mis-governance.
