The Jammu Kashmir government Thursday admitted that regularisation of services had been misused in Jammu Kashmir over the years.
Addressing a news conference, Chief Secretary B V R Subrahmanyam said many people had been appointed in government jobs either by backdoor entry or through some influence.
“Regularisation of services has always been a big issue. We have no hesitation to admit that regularisation has been misused. Many daily wagers and contractuals have been appointed who had connections in power corridors, and later get regularised,” Subrahmanyam said during a news conference of Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha.
Subrahmanyam said regularisation is nobody’s right and there was a Supreme Court ruling.
“If you read the newspaper about it and how the Punjab High Court struck down the regularisation order,” he said.
Subrahmanyam said even though there was mismanagement in regularisation of services, the government was trying to accommodate in a systematic way by looking at various aspects including financial implications.
“If I tell you that because of these schemes there will be no vacancy till 2032. But we have regularised 40,000 teachers under Rehbar-e-Taleem recruits. It is unprecedented,” he said.
