JAMMU: Expressing concern over the slow pace in the disposal of graft cases, Chief Secretary B B Vyas on Thursday has urged the Administrative Secretaries to personally monitor the departmental enquiries against the accused employees so as to bring the guilty to the law, while removing impediment in the promotion of the innocent which is hampered by non-finalization of such pending enquiries.
The Chief Secretary was chairing a meeting of Administrative Secretaries of various departments and officers of police, various autonomous bodies and corporations to review the action taken on the recommendations of the anti-corruption agencies relating to sanction of prosecution and regular departmental action against accused employees.
Vyas who expressed concern over the slow pace in the disposal of these cases, emphasised on the need for conclusion of these matters on a fast track basis to ensure timely departmental action against the accused employees.
The Administrative Secretaries were also directed to expedite the disposal of pending sanctions to the prosecution of employees found involved by the Vigilance Organization and Crime Branch in corrupt practices and ensure that a decision is taken within next one month.
Chief Secretary advised the Administrative Secretaries to exercise due diligence while writing the Annual Performance Reports of the officers/officials subordinate to them and to specifically bring on record instances of any delinquency/misconduct or inefficiency in these reports.
The departments were also advised to take required preventive measures on the basis of alert notes/advisories issued by the anti-corruption agencies so as to serve as a deterrent in future.
