Pulwama: Govt employees suspended for drawing salaries from 2 departments

SRINAGAR: Authorities have suspended a government employee in Pulwama found drawing salary from two departments.

An official of the FCSCA Department said that they received a complaint from ACB as well as from other quarters against a Fair Price shop dealer in Sail Awantipora named Javid Ahmad Bhat.

It was alleged that Bhat was working in Srinagar Municipal Corporation since 2002 and was simultaneously working in FCSCA Department Pulwama as a Fair Price Shop dealer till 2017 before managing to transfer the license in the name of his daughter Asiya Javid.

He said that Assistant Director FCSCA Pulwama, to confirm the contents of the complaint, took up the issue with the Commissioner SMC Srinagar and Manager JK Bank Branch Balgarden.

“While perusing the service records of the above person, it came to fore that Javid Ahmad Bhat son of Mohammad Shaban Bhat of Chersoo Awantipora has changed his name to Reyaz Ahmad Sheikh son of Bashir Ahmad Sheikh of Narwara Safa Kadal Eidgah Srinagar. The

a photograph attached with his service book at SMC Office has authenticated that Javid Ahmad Bhat and Reyaz Ahmad Sheikh are one person,” he said. He said that Bhat had caused loss to the state exchequer by withdrawing commission from FCSCA Department and monthly salary from SMC Kashmir.

“He cannot hold two offices at one time and is liable for criminal prosecution,” the official added. He said that the first FPS license Sail Awantipora in Asiya Javid’s name was suspended, and her monthly quota was diverted to the nearest sale center.

He said that a show cause notice was also served to the accused to prove his point, but his answer wasn’t satisfactory, and the department has ordered for cancellation of the licence. He added that the department has also written to SSP crime to recover the amount he has withdrawn illegally.

He said that the license has been canceled as it was issued by fraudulent means—(KNO)
