In the Board of Technical Education, many casual labourers have been disengaged from their services by the Jammu & Kashmir administration.

A letter to the Secretary, Board of Technical Education has been written by Under Secretary, Department of Skill Development on June 23, informing about the disengagement of casual labourers in the Board of Technical Education.

In the letter the Secretary has been asked to ensure that the identified casual labourers are disengaged within a time period of 15 days. “I am directed to refer your letter No. BOTE/Estab/701-1/2021/1863-64 dated 17-05-2021, wherein among other things, it has been reported as under:-

“That 11 (eleven) number casual labourers working in Divisional Office, Srinagar, 06 (six) no of casual labourers are working in Divisional Office, Jammu and 03 (three) number in Central Office of JKBOTE, the authorization of their engagement is not forthcoming from the records,” reads the letter issued under correspondence number DSD-Adm/3/2021-02 dated 23-06-2021.

Further in the letter it is mentioned that they had been paid remuneration on regular basis, as well as from what head of account they are being paid the remuneration and on what authority their engagement is confirmed by the Board.

Thus a request had been made to disengage such casual labourers who have been “illegally” engaged. No officer was held accountable for engaging these causal labourers. No formal appointment letter has been issued and they are continuing as such.
