Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, July 12: Since the imposition of the Governor's Rule in Jammu and Kashmir, the departments have initiated a process to hold parallel enquiries against tainted officials in addition to probe being held by anti-graft bodies.
Sources said that during the PDP-BJP government the departments were not showing any concern to hold parallel enquiries against tainted officials.
"There was always a political influence whenever a department would initiate a parallel enquiry against any official," an official of the General Administration Department said.
The official said that since the imposition of Governor's Rule, the departments have taken it very seriously to initiate action against tainted officials. "There is not now any political influence. Governor has also showing concern over growing corruption in departments," the official said.
As per Civil Service Conduct Rules, it is mandatory for departments to hold their own enquiries against the tainted officials and take action against officials if found guilty without waiting on the outcome of anti-graft bodies probe.
The anti-graft bodies, State Vigilance Organization, Crime Branch, have been holding enquiries in corruption cases, the departments were not holding their own probe in most corruption cases, officials said. "In 90 percent cases, the departments were not holding parallel enquiries against tainted officials that is violation of the Civil Service Conduct Rules," the GAD official said. "That is now changing since imposition of Governor Rule."
The official said the government has directed departments to hold their own enquiries against tainted officials once the anti-graft bodies register an FIR or even initiate preliminary enquiries against officials facing corruption charges.
"Due to non-holding of departmental probe, there is no mention of corruption charges in annual performance reports of these officials. The government's directives asking departments to hold own enquiries will also help the government to take action against tainted officials without waiting for outcome of anti-graft bodies probes," the official said.
The departmental vigilance officers and district vigilance officers have also been directed to adopt multi dimensional approach to check allegations of corruption against government officials. The duties of departmental vigilance officers and district vigilance officers are explicitly defined in Jammu and Kashmir State Vigilance Commission Rules, 2013. Their role is to check corruption in departments even based on any media report.
An official of State Vigilance Organisation said, "Once the SVO look into the subject of the complaint, we sometime ask departments to hold own probe and send us the report. There are departmental vigilance officers who hold the probe in their respective department."
Further, the departments have also been directed by the government to act on the probe reports of anti-graft bodies.
