J&K Government Promotes 569 JKAS Officers

Govt of J&K

Jammu and Kashmir – The government of Jammu and Kashmir has released a tentative seniority list of the Junior Scale members of the Jammu and Kashmir Administrative Service as on 01.01.2023. This comes after the issuance of a provisional seniority list in 2019 for the 2011, 2012-1, 2012-II, 2013 and 2015 batches of Junior Scale JKAS Officers. The list was subject to the successful completion of the probation period for those who had not satisfactorily completed their probation at that point in time.

According to the latest order, several developments have occurred in the Jammu and Kashmir Administrative Service at its Junior Scale, including the confirmation of probation for various officers who were included in the previous seniority list provisionally. In addition, 184 Junior Scale Officers of the 2011 batch have been inducted into the Time Scale of the Jammu and Kashmir Administrative Service, and 291 candidates (264 of 2019 batch & 27 of 2020 Batch) have been appointed to the Junior Scale of the service.

The new seniority list includes officers from the 2011, 2012-I & II, 2013, 2015, 2018, 2019, and 2020 batches, as it stood on 01.01.2023. The list was drawn up in accordance with the rules governing the subject, including Rule 24 of the Jammu and Kashmir Civil Services (Classification, Control and Appeal) Rules, 1956, as amended from time to time, and Rule 18 of the Jammu and Kashmir Administrative Service Rules, 2008, as amended from time to time.

The tentative seniority list of the Junior Scale officers/members of the Jammu and Kashmir Administrative Service is now available for the concerned officers/members to view. Any member of the service included in the tentative seniority list, aggrieved with the assignment of his/her position in the seniority list or the details vis-à-vis his/her date of birth, may represent to the General Administration Department, along with documentary evidence, within a period of 21 days from the issuance of this Government Order.

The seniority positions assigned to the Junior Scale KAS Officers whose probation has not been confirmed due to either not having passed the prescribed departmental examination or other deficiencies viz; integrity certificate/vigilance clearance, is provisional and shall be subject to the satisfactorily completion of the period of probation. The details vis-à-vis reserved category to which a member belongs, excluding ST and SC candidates, shall be notified against the name in the final seniority only after a valid reserved category certificate is submitted in the General Administration Department (Services Section), Civil Secretariat, Jammu/Srinagar in person or on email id: servicesection226@gmail.com, within 21 days from the date of the issuance of this Order.

The government order noted that the category status of those officers who fail to submit valid category certificates within the stipulated period shall not be reflected in the final seniority list and shall be deemed to be treated as OM henceforth. The category certificates either received in person or from the official email id (@jk.gov.in or @nic.in) of the concerned officer shall only be treated as valid.

The issuance of the updated seniority list is expected to provide clarity on the hierarchy of Junior Scale members of the Jammu and Kashmir Administrative Service and facilitate the smooth functioning of the service.

Final Notice for Annual Property Returns Submission by J&K Government Employees on PRS Portal

Govt of J&K

The Jammu and Kashmir Government has issued a final notice to all its employees who have failed to submit their annual property returns on the PRS portal. This notice is a follow-up to the circular issued in December 2022, which instructed all employees to submit their property returns for the year 2022 on the PRS portal from January 1 to January 31, 2023. However, many employees have failed to meet the deadline, which is a mandatory process.

The failure to submit property returns by government employees is a punishable offense under the provisions of the Jammu and Kashmir Public Men and Public Servants Declaration of Assets Act and Rules made thereunder. The employees who have failed to meet the deadline will also be guilty of committing criminal misconduct under the Prevention of Corruption Act and will be punishable under the said act. Furthermore, non-submission of property returns will result in the denial of vigilance clearance of defaulting employees.

Considering the gravity of the situation, the General Administration Department has decided to grant a last and final opportunity to defaulting employees who have failed to submit their property returns within the stipulated timeline. However, this opportunity is only available between February 28 and March 10, 2023. After this period, no more opportunities will be granted, and action as mentioned above will be initiated against defaulters.

During the above stipulated period, employees who have registered themselves on the portal but have not submitted their property returns must do so. Furthermore, unregistered employees must get themselves registered on the portal and subsequently submit their property returns.

Controlling officers and drawing and disbursing officers (DDOs) are also instructed to ensure compliance with regard to filing of property returns by all the defaulting employees of their establishment. Further, administrative departments shall also assess the progress in this regard.

It is essential for government employees to understand the gravity of the situation and comply with the deadline to avoid punitive action. The submission of property returns is a mandatory process, and all employees must fulfill their obligations. The PRS portal is an online platform that provides a convenient and efficient way for employees to submit their property returns, and they should make use of this facility to comply with the requirements.

The release of the encroachments list by the Divisional Commissioner has caused a stir among the residents of Ganderbal, as it holds far-reaching consequences for those named on the list.

According to sources, the individuals named on the list may face legal action to reclaim the state land they have occupied. The local authorities have declined to comment on the matter, and it remains unclear what specific actions will be taken against those on the list.

However, it is widely expected that the local government will take strict measures to reclaim the state land and ensure that it is used for public good. The release of the encroachments list is a significant step towards restoring the legality and fairness of land ownership in Jammu and Kashmir.

The public is advised to seek guidance from a local lawyer or relevant authorities for a more accurate interpretation of the situation and any potential legal consequences.

The administration has made various sections in the list giving elaborate details of the land. Under Proforma A, details and list of land approved and mutation attested thereafter, has been provided of all the ten districts.

Under Proforma B, a list of land approved but mutation not attested have been uploaded. In Proforma C, details and list of state land encroachment (recorded in revenue records, other than Roshni) has been provided with name and survey number including the area. And under Proforma D, details of state land encroachment (physically) but not shown in Revenue records (other than Roshni) have been uploaded.

The list comes amid the ongoing anti-encroachment drive in Jammu and Kashmir, evoking sharp criticism from almost all the major political parties of the Union Territory.

It may be noted, the High Court of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh has declared the Roshni Act as null and void in 2020.

The Jammu and Kashmir state lands (vesting of ownership to the occupants) Act was enacted in the year 2001 with the twin objective of generating resources for financing power projects and conferment of proprietary rights to the occupants of the state land.

The act popularly called as Roshni scheme initially envisaged conferment of proprietary rights of around 20.55 lakh Kanals (102750 hectares) to the occupants of which only 15.85 per cent land was approved for vesting of ownership rights.

The scheme was finally repealed by the then governor Satya Pal Malik on November 28, 2018.

In 2014, however, the Comptroller and Auditor General had estimated that only Rs 76 crore had been raised from the transfer of encroached land between 2007 and 2013.
