Government of Jammu and Kashmir Health and Medical Education Department Civil Secretariat, Srinagar/Jammu
Transfers and postings- instructions thereon.
Circular No:- 04 -JK(HME) of 2022 Dated: 19-05-2022
In the weekly review meeting of the Health and Medical Education Department taken by Principal Secretary to the Government, Health and Medical Education Department on 17th of May, 2022, in Civil Secretariat, Jammu, it has been observed that some Medical Officers and para medical staff get recommendations from different political and dignitaries for their transfers and postings.
This has been viewed very seriously as it amounts to breach of service conduct rules. Besides it causes un due interference in the functioning of the Department and is also in violation of the circular instructions issued by the General Administration Department vide Circular No. 05-GAD of 2017 dated 02.02.2017.
It is, therefore, enjoined upon all the Heads of the Departments falling under the Administrative control of Health and Medical Education department that they shall impress upon all the officers/officials working under their control, not to bring any recommendations from the political or any other dignitaries for their transfers and postings. It also needs to be impressed upon them that such recommendations would attract disciplinary action. However in case there are any compelling circumstances which warrant the transfer of any officer/official, the case shall be brought to the knowledge of the Administrative Department, through proper channel.
(Navin K. Choudhary) IAS Principal Secretary to the Government Health and Medical Education Department.
