The government of Jammu and Kashmir has given a new shape to the functioning of administration and has minimized the paperwork and files especially in the civil secretariat.
In the past several months J&K government has taken a lot of steps for the streamlining of functioning of administration and has taken several unique e-governance reforms.
The JKGAD introduced several Administrative and Human Resource Management reforms for improving the governance and administrative set up in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir. More powers have been delegated to Divisional Commissioners/Deputy Commissioners/Sub-Divisional Magistrates for effective control over their subordinates.
To accelerate the path of development across J&K and to organize Public Outreach Programmes on a regular basis, Administrative Secretaries have been allocated districts to monitor development schemes. The Administrative Secretaries also interact with the public in these districts during these outreach programmes to get first hand appraisal of developmental works.
The JKGAD has initiated the process of fast track recruitment after identification of around twenty five thousand vacant posts across various departments. Around 54 Recruitment Rules of various departments/services have been finalized, besides 98 different rules have been amended/issued afresh to remove the ambiguity/anomaly due to reorganization.
To motivate the officers and officials at various levels, Departmental Promotion Committees were held in respect of various services manned by the GAD, resulting in promotion of around 500 Gazetted and 120 Non-Gazetted Staff members besides promotion of around 1000 officers of JKAS at different levels has also been done in recent months. A decade long seniority dispute amongst JKAS officers has also been settled with the issuance of revised seniority list in April, 2021 followed by substantive promotion of officers.
