Move has affected work output, besides hampering growth of employees

Srinagar: Reflecting the non-seriousness of the government to fill key positions in the education department, as many as six posts of Chief Education Officers (CEOs) have been left vacant which has been telling upon the overall performance of the department.
The move has paved way for adhocism in the school education department which is hampering the pace of work on various important projects and day to day administrative decisions.
“Besides, the posts of CEO’s, 30 posts of ZEO’s are also lying vacant in the department and the positions are manned by other officers of equivalent rank as their ‘additional charge,” a senior official said.
“The additional charge syndrome has affected the work culture in the department. It is not possible for a person to manage two jobs at one time,” he said.
Pertinently, central Kashmir’s Ganderbal district has become worst victim of “official neglect” as the three out of four education zones are headless in the district.
To top it all, the post of Chief Education Officer (CEO) Principal District Institute of Education and Training (DIET) are also lying vacant in the district. The two vacant posts are managed by deputy chief education officer Ganderbal as his additional charges.
Around six posts of chief education officers (CEO’s) and Principal District Institute of Education and Training (DIET) are lying vacant in the department which has hampered the functioning of the offices.
In Anantnag district, the CEO post is manned by joint director south Kashmir as his additional charge. He has been also assigned additional charge of principal district institute of Education and Training (DIET) as well.
The post of CEO is also lying vacant in Srinagar, Kargil and Kulgam as well, insiders in the department say.
Not only this but as many as 140 posts of headmasters and more than 75 posts of Principals at the higher secondary level are also vacant in the department.
“975 posts of lecturers are also lying vacant in higher secondary schools,” the official added.
