SRINAGAR, OCTOBER 9: In accordance with its stated policy of having no tolerance for employee misconduct or corruption, the Government of Jammu and Kashmir has ordered the dismissal of Ruquiya Akhter, the Watch and Ward Woman of the former J&K Legislative Council, which is now under the supervision of the Department of Law, Justice, and Parliamentary Affairs.
According to Clause (vii) of Rule-30 of the Jammu and Kashmir Civil Services (Classification, Control, and Appeal) Rules, 1956, the employee has been terminated from employment because it was determined that they had engaged in misconduct and flagrant violations of the Jammu and Kashmir Government Employees (Conduct) Rules, 1971.
During the course of the investigation, it became clear that while the official was working at the J&K office of the Advocate General, a bogus appointment order had been issued, and she had been receiving large sums of money into her account by enticing unwary applicants with the prospect of a government post. The investigation officer came to the conclusion that all of the allegations made against the official were true. She will not be eligible for any pension benefits as a result of her dismissal from duty under the aforementioned provision. The official’s termination order is intended to serve as a warning to other workers who are engaging in corrupt behaviour.
