8/9/2020 11:31:37 PM

Early Times Report

Jammu, Aug 9: In the wake of rising complaints of alleged financial irregularities at the SK Institute of Medical Sciences Soura and its Medical College Hospital Bemina in Srinagar, the Jammu and Kashmir government has passed an order to monitor the expenditure as being made by the SKIMS hospitals on Covid19.
Official sources said the Govt of Jammu and 'Kashmir, General Administration Department has passed formal orders in this regard vide number Order No.737-3K (GAD) of 2020 Dated: 30.07.2020.
“In the interest of administration and effective management of the COVID-19 Pandemic, it is hereby ordered that all hospitals of Kashmir Province including SKIMS Srinagar, SKIMS Medical College Bemina and others shall work directly under the Administrative Control of Financial Commissioner, Health & Medical Education Department and shall adhere to all orders and instructions issued by him till the Pandemic is over,” reads the copy of the order accessed by the Early Times. Sources said the order was issued on the instructions of Lieutenant Governor who wants transparency in the system.
For the last few months, numerous complaints have surfaced that some officials at the SKIMS Soura were allegedly resorting to misuse of funding for the Covid-19.
Apart from complaints of making procurement worth millions without tendering, there were complaints that in some of the cases such procurement was made which was not put on use for months.
Sources said the government had been getting numerous complaints which hinted that the “financial expenditure was being manipulated and thus the government came out with a plan to monitor the financial working of the SKIMS.”
It is for the first time in the last four odd decades since the establishment of the SKIMS that the Civil Secretariat would keep track of financial expenditure as was made by the hospital.
A senior official at the SKIMS refuted allegations that the hospital was under scanner adding that the order was issued by the government as a “routine one.”
