Jammu, Mar 17: After the imposition of Governor rule, though a large number of attachments in School Education department were cancelled but there is a unique case in Basohli wherein an employee of department continue to work in Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM) office without any formal orders.
Sources informed Early Times that former SDM Basohli in the month of September had got attached a fourth class employee from Model Higher Secondary School Basohli for some election related works due to shortage of staff but without any formal order.
The School Principal had reportedly time and again requested the SDM office to detach the employee but interestingly no action either withholding the salary or serving a notice to the attached employee, was done by School administration.
Sources further said that on 10th of September, 2015, when former Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed had visited Basohli to inaugurate Model Higher Secondary School Basohli, this attached employee had returned to Higher Secondary for few days only after the intervention of Chief Education Officer Kathua.
An official informed that despite no formal order of attachment, the Class-IV employee has been getting salary without any order of attachment. "After every month, a duty slip is given by SDM office to HSS Basohli Principal, and the salary of employee is released", the employee said.
Few days back, sources said, a Joint Director from Director Office had visited HSS Basohli to ascertain the number of employees attached in various offices. "The HSS administration had not even informed Joint Director about informal attachment of this Class-IV employee in SDM office", sources said.
Principal of HSS Basohli Pawan Kumar admitted that the class-IV employee has been working in SDM office without any written order. "Every time a duty slip is given by SDM office and we disburse the salary", he said.
On being asked if they required services of employee or not, Principal said that there was dire need of employees in school. "The new SDM has joined recently and I will personally request him to detach the employee", he said.
Chief Education Officer (CEO) Kathua, Balbir Singh said that he had asked SDM personally to put services of employees at the disposal of HSS Principal otherwise, the employee would be suspended.
"Verbally I had asked the SDM but it is the duty of Principal to send a notice and if the employee would not join, suspend the employee", he said. Later, Principal HSS school informed Early Times that he talked to SDM and the employee has been detached from SDM office.
SDM Basohli could not be contacted as his phone was switched off.
