Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, Oct 28: The District Disaster Management Authorities (DDMAs) of Kupwara and Baramulla are lacking equipment and machinery to fight with exigencies while top brass of the department are busy right from the year 2015 to appoint unnecessary professionals in the department.
Highly placed sources said DDMAs of disaster prone districts can be strengthened only with infrastructure like required equipment and machinery, for example Emergency Vehicles, Generators, snow cutters etc, that are seen missing during natural calamity or accidents.
“Unfortunate part is that, the department at top level is only wasting money over contractual appointments and that too in violation of basic principles of norms like recently department has appointed two consultants for Baramulla and Kupwara each those by considering the experience of previously appointed candidates as Disaster Management professional purely via backdoor”, said sources on condition of anonymity.
Sources said that despite there is no need of such less experienced and previously backdoor appointee consultants, as the matter of fact every district has already drafted Disaster Management plans and are regularly updating it as and when required and the department at district levels is also working with full zest to strengthen the DDMA.
Sources further revealed that instead of hiring any contractual staff it will be better if the government will allocate funds to DDMAs for purchasing of required equipment and machinery, hiring of contractual staff is meaningless and wastage of public money, sources informed.
Sources alleged that, “there are some vested interest in the DMRRR Department those are busy in support of backdoor appointment via various modus operandi right from the year 2015 and its fresh example is how they be-fooled Ministry of Home affairs that experience clause for the appointment of senior consultant and two consultants should be relaxed from five years to two years and succeeded in it and re-notified the advertisement to adjust previously appointed two DMPs as consultants whose experience is purely in valid”.
Sources said instead of this government should have made recommendations to relax the clause of experience and priority to PhD candidates with proper examination to appoint senior consultant and consultant as the matter of the fact is that on one hand government is conducting examination for small posts like appointment of contractual Anesthesia Assistant under Emergency Covid response package that too which is meant for three or six months with Rs 12000 monthly remuneration only.
They said that, on the other hand, for the post like senior consultant and consultant whose remuneration will be Rs 1 lakh and Rs 70 thousand respectively and there is no examination at all. “Without huge loss to the state exchequer funds meant for hiring of contractual staff must be diverted for purchasing of different kinds of equipment and machinery so that DDMAs can be strengthened”, sources added.
