SRINAGAR — Citing the new laws being governed in Jammu and Kashmir after the re-organization of the State of J&K into Union Territory, J&K Government has disengaged 93 paramedical staff who had been engaged on an academic arrangement basis at Government Medical College Srinagar.
Principal, Government Medical College Srinagar has issued an order which states that 93 paramedical staffers who have completed six years term on an academic arrangement basis and do not have any interim relief or direction from any court of law for their continuation in this institution are hereby disengaged with immediate effect.
The disengaged staff had earlier filed several writ petitions and they even got relief from the court that directed the authorities to allow them to continue in the department, however, with the implementation of the ‘Reorganization Act’, the matter went to Tribunal and later the Division Bench of the High Court while dismissing petitions from the aggrieved staff vacated all interim directions.
Principal Government Medical College in the order has stated that after the dismissal of the writ petitions by the High Court, the J&K Service Selection Board started to recommend selection lists against the notified posts of this institution and thus in light of this background and in view of the selections being recommended by SSRB for various categories of paramedical posts, the matter was examined and it was observed that there is no justification in continuing with those incumbents on academic arrangement basis, who have completed maximum permissible extended term up to six years and do not have any interim relief or direction from any court of law.
“After due deliberations, it was decided to immediately disengage 93 paramedical employees whose maximum permissible extended term up to six years have completed on academic arrangement basis,” he said.
