Early Times Report

Anantnag, July 22: The Jammu and Kashmir government has decided to recover salary amount from all those physical teachers who had drawn salaries for the period during which they claimed to have pursued Masters of Physical Education (MP.Ed) degrees.
In this regard, the government issued an order vide No. 46 Edu(YSS) of 2019 dated 09-07-2017. "Ex-post facto sanction is hereby accorded to the grant of permission in favour of physical education teachers/physical education maters for pursuing higher qualification. Recovery of salary amount from the PETs/PEMs for the period they pursued higher education without proper permission," reads the order.
The government has also directed the Youth Service and Sports Department to initiate disciplinary action against those officers who had granted permission to the physical education teachers/physical education maters to purse higher education at their own level in violation of norms.
Important to recall here, few years ago, State Vigilance Organization (SVO) claimed that over ninety Officers in Youth Services and Sports (YSS) department were holding fake Masters of Physical Education (MP.Ed) degrees.
They vigilance, now Anti-Corruption Bureau, had found them guilty and had forwarded the enquiry report to General Administration Department (GAD) for regular departmental action
An internal enquiry report accessed by ET reveals that most of the officers have got admission in North Maharashtra University Jalgoan MPEd course but haven't got study leave sanctioned from the competent authorities.
The officer currently looking after Anantnag district of South Kashmir has availed just 177 days leave that too from an incompetent authority. The officer however has not completed the two degree according to the University order 188828 issued vide letter No. 68/6771/98-99 dated 30-10-1998.
The information obtained through RTI vide no.DYSS/11894-95, dated 08-05-2012 says, "so far as the North Maharashtra University Jalgoan conducts MPEd (Physical) for two years duration and is a regular course."
Earlier the University through its order 188828 issued vide letter No. 68/6771/98-99 dated 30-10-1998 has requested all the candidates who had undergone one year MPED course up to session 1998-99 to seek admission for 2nd year but officers of Youth Services & Sports department didn't return.
The University of Kashmir University has issued an order vide No- F (Equivalence/MPEd) Acad/KU/07date October 18-2007 that one year MPEd course isn't equivalent to MPEd degree so has Jammu University vide letter no. F./Acd/07/8918 dated 05-10-2007.
Among 158, enquiry committee and subsequently vigilance probe has found 97 officers (lecturers) in Youth Services & Sports department with fake or invalid degrees. Most of these fake degree holders are holding sensitive gazetted posts as they have availed promotions on these fake degrees.
The committee constituted by the Youth Services and Sports Department vide No. 25 Edu/ (YSS) of 2017 dated 02-03-2017 found procedure lapse by the officers who have granted to 51 officials. These officials have drawn salaries which were not due to them as per the study leave rules.
