Directorate of Health Services violates its transfer policy, reveals RTI
Srinagar: In a blatant violation of the Transfer Policy set by the department, the RTI report has revealed that the Directorate of Health Services Kashmir has itself violated the norms by posting the doctors in the hospitals for over two years or more.
A startling revelation has come to fore through the RTI wherein the applicant had sought details about the total number of doctors posted at five hospitals in the Valley along with their names and joining dates.
The applicant, DR Riyaz Ahmad Dagga on 06-03-2018 has filed an RTI has alleged that the information given by the department is wrong and misleading. Dagga added that blue-eyed doctors are given plum posting and some are even paying money to the director office to avoid the transfer and those doctors who raise their voices against such issue are being harassed by the department.
“The irony is that the details provided in an RTI are absolutely wrong,” he says.
The RTI reveals that the joining date of one Medical superintendent in Police Control Room (PCR) hospital is 08-09-2016. Dagga, however, alleges that the said doctor is at police hospital for more than a decade now.
He said that as per rules and regulations, doctor should be transferred after two years.
More ever RTI reveals that there are few doctors that are working in PCR hospital for more than a10 years now.
“So far I have received the details of PCR hospital only and as I get details from other hospitals more things would be cleared and revealed,” he adds.
“Since the information is wrong and misleading, I will go for the first appeal,” says Dagga.
Despite the repeated calls to Director Health Service for his comments, the contact couldn’t be established.
