The All Arunachal Pradesh Students Union (AAPSU) has alleged ‘gross anomalies’ in the recruitment of five aviation officers and six charge-men under the Directorate of Civil Aviation.
Armed with the findings of RTI (Right to Information), AAPSU president Takam Tatung said ‘gross violations’ had been made in the recruitment process in the department, reported UNI.
‘’It is appalling to note that no advertisement was floated for the appointment of five aviation officers and six charge-men and the vacant posts have been fulfilled at the behest of the director without following the laid down norms and guidelines which is mandatory,’’ Tatung said.
According to the RTI findings, the state government had sanctioned the said new posts in the department by an order on February 2009 and the department, without taking cognizance of the laid down guidelines, completed the recruitment process.
They were directly appointed on ‘insignificant’ ground in the months of August and November 2009, depriving thousands of qualified unemployed youths of the state, the AAPSU president added.
‘’It has been also observed that the director has recommended for the induction of various ministerial staff on deputation from other department citing lack of experienced ministerial staff in the department who can operate computers and process files properly as result of which the functioning of the department was hampered,’’ he said.
Making strong objections to the appointments, the apex students body called for immediate cancellation of the same.
Pitching for early advertisement of the said posts to give equal opportunity to the qualified unemployed youths to compete in the examination, the AAPSU urged the state government to go for necessary procedures as per law to punish the erring official so that such nepotism and illegal practices are discouraged.
