Deep-Rooted Nexus


Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) has established forgery of policy documents of Jammu and Kashmir Public Service Commission, this major recruiting agency of the State aimed at maintaining the deep-rooted nexus of some members, officials and consultants. Shockingly, neither FIR has been registered on the basis of explicit report of the FSL nor any enquiry initiated despite the fact that Chairman as well as all the Members were apprised of the same thereby establishing that attempts are being made to shield all those involved in the criminal offence. After appointment of new Chairman and Members of the Public Service Commission (PSC), a meeting was convened on July 28, 2015 and several decisions were taken aimed at exercising utmost impartiality, objectivity and efficiency in its functioning and being fair to all in the selections for various posts in the Government departments. It was decided to re-engage Hakim Ghulam Jeelani, former Secretary Services Selection Board and M A Bhat, former Under Secretary of the Public Service Commission as consultants only for a period of six months and thereafter new consultants will be engaged. A hot debate had began in the Public Service Commission on the basis of information leaked from credible quarters that minutes of meeting held on July 28, 2015 were forged on the issue of engagement of consultants and Chairman has been given powers to extend engagement of consultants from time to time. Following serious concern by several Members of the PSC, it was decided to get the relevant pages of the minutes of meeting containing initials of Chairman and sitting Member forensically examined. The Directorate of J&K Forensic Science Laboratory in its report No.32/DOC/FSL/2017 dated May 22, 2017, has established forgery of initials of Tashi Dorje, the then Member of the Public Service Commission.
The forgery of policy documents has substantiated the general perception that all is not well in the Public Service Commission and unless the manpower deployed in this major recruiting agency is changed things are not going to improve and biased approach in selections will continue. Now, it is to be seen whether the Government takes steps to streamline the functioning of Public Service Commission by acting on the report of Forensic Science Laboratory or shuts its eyes towards the startling revelations and allow the nexus to continue.
