In its endeavour to make the Jammu and Kashmir Police Department more efficient and transparent, the union territory administration on Thursday prematurely retired 36 police personnel on charges of their involvement in corruption and criminal activities.

These personnel conducted their duties in ways that were unbecoming of public servants and in violation of the established code of conduct.

The exercise was conducted as part of a regular process of scrutinising the records of officials, who cross benchmarks of age and service period in terms of Article 226(2) of J&K CSRs.

These employees were found involved in illegal activities, remained unauthorizedly absent from duties for a considerable period, underperformed, were penalised in departmental inquiries, and some of them were found involved in corruption cases, were facing serious criminal charges, and had doubtful integrity.

As per the recommendations of the Review Committee, the performance of these employees was found to be unsatisfactory, and their continuation in government service was found to be against the public interest.

In the recent past, as part of its zero-tolerance policy towards corruption, various employees have been dismissed from service on account of official misconduct, after rigorously following departmental proceedings against them.

Many cases are also under the scrutiny of the empowered committees constituted for consideration of cases under Article 226(2) of the J&K CSRs.

Further, many employees have also been terminated from service on account of anti-national activities.

Meanwhile, the J&K administration has also initiated several measures for human resource development of government employees in Jammu and Kashmir, which include an online human resource management system (eHRMS), the induction of officers into the prestigious Indian Administrative Service as well as the Indian Police Service, the conduct of timely DPCs for smooth career progression, updating recruitment rules, fast-tracking the recruitment process through recruiting agencies, and abolishing interviews for most of the non-gazetted vacancies referred to the Services Selection Board.
