To oversee manpower audit in all the departments of the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir a committee was framed earlier. But lackadaisical attitude of the concerned officials of the committee has failed to begin the manpower audit even after several announcements of the government.

The committee headed by Principal Secretary to the government, Home Department and comprising Principal Secretary to the Government, Housing and Urban Development Department, Commissioner Secretary, General Administration Department, Commissioner Secretary, Department of Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs and Director General (Codes) Finance Department was directed to finalize the scope of work for manpower audit for various departments.

The committee was assigned to finalize the scope of work for manpower audit for various departments in the government of J&K, shortlist a government/private agency for conducting the manpower audit in a methodical and professional manner by utilizing scientific tools and suggest a framework for optimum utilization of staff available with various departments/organizations.

The need for manpower audit in each organization of the government of J&K was felt soon after the bifurcation of erstwhile State into two Union Territories. Administrative departments were advised to conduct manpower audit and ensure effective utilization of human resources available with the departments.

But even after four months since the committee has been framed but the work has not been initiated nor agency has not been shortlisted.  Some members of the committee said that meetings of the committee were fixed once or twice but the same were postponed without assigning any specific reason.
