Srinagar, Feb 9: Eight administrative officers out of 10 shortlisted to be inducted into KAS have been left out.
Sources said that sanctioned strength of Administrative officers was enhanced up to 27 posts but no Administrative officers were inducted into KAS since 2014 and the slots remained unfilled till 2018.
“This year a panel of 10 Administrative officers as per seniority of 2015 were called for submission of five years, APRs, integrity certificate and posting details for vigilance clearance all the procedure was completed in all respects for consideration into KAS (time scale),” they said, adding, “That on 5 February vide order NO. 178-GAD OF 2019 dated 02-02-2019 out of 53 officers who were inducted into KAS but eight from the panel couldn’t find names,” they said, alluding to unauthorized diversion of the quota earmarked for the Administrative Officers.
One of the dropped out officers said only considering only two Administrative Officers out of the slot of 10 Administrative Officers was a grave injustice.
