Irregularities found in GMC class IV selection list; names of 24 candidates missing

Vishal Sharma
A major farrago has came into fore in the class fourth appointment of the ‘safaikaramcharis’ in the associated hospitals of Government Medical College, Jammu list of which was released on Friday
by the Principal and
Dean, Government Medical College, Jammu Dr Zahid H Gillani. Bizarrely, the provisional selection list released by the principal GMC under order no 314/AHJ of 2016 dated 4-10-2016 is having only 46 names instead of 70 as mentioned in the notification above it.
The selection list has been so dexterously published in the newspaper that in the extreme middle after serial number 25 there is a jump in the serials and the next serial number is 50 instead of 26.
Overall the names of 24 candidates are missing from the list which was published on 8 October 2016 in just one local daily news paper instead of three as per norms.
If we go through the list, serial number 25 is of Sunny Meshi parentage Lt. Mohan Meshi of Samba and the next serial number is 50 of Babli parentage Kaku of Udhampur. Both the names are completely different and are of different districts too hence there is no possibility that the jump in serial numbers is due to similar or matching names.
Also the department concerned has not released any corrigendum in the media on this issue and even the list of missing 24 candidates has not been published till yet which has raised doubts over the department.
Sources within the department said that nothing could be said so early as it may be due to the missing of any page while issuing advertisement to the publicity department but if it was so then why the GMC has not issued any corrigendum for the mistake as the list has created chaos among the candidates who were waiting for the list since the year 2013. The advertisement for the same was issued three years back under advertisement number AHJ/3307-12 dated 28-01-2013.
“It may be rigging in the appointment process and may be a mistake while issuing advertisement, but it is the responsibility of the principal GMC, Jammu to clarify his stand over the incomplete selection list published in the newspaper” sources concluded.
When tried to contact Dr Zahid H Gillani telephonically, contact could not be established.
