Srinagar- The School Education Department in Kashmir has terminated the services of a teacher, who had managed to get entry into the department 13 years ago by producing fake appointment orders.
In a letter written in November last, the Chief Education Officer (CEO) Srinagar has reported that the service book of an ‘imposter’ working as teacher in a government school revealed an entry to the effect that he has been appointed as teacher in 2009 under RBA category, after being selected by the JK Service Selection Board.”
“In order to ascertain the genuineness of his appointment order, the original order issued by DSEK on December-12-2009 appointment Service Selection Board were verified and it has been and found that his name does not figure anywhere in the original appointment order nor original select list of JKSSB,” the order reads.
It reads the delinquent ‘teacher’ was placed under suspension and attached to DSEK and he had failed to report to the directorate, in compliance with the ibid order.
According to the CEO, the matter was enquired by the Joint Director (Central) after conducting an in-depth enquiry and it was reported that the appointment order showing to have been issued in favour of some other two teachers was fake and forged and the fraudster has managed his entry in the department by producing fake appointment order.
“He therefore has deceived the authorities, while drawing illegal wages from the government exchequer.”
“The ‘delinquent teacher’ has responded to the show cause notice and submitted the reply January-10-2023 through speed post, which was thoroughly examined and found devoid of merit for reconsideration,” it reads.
It reads the appointment order purportedly issued in favour of the ‘fraudster’ being not issued by DSEK is treated to be null and void and non-est in the eyes of law.”
“Consequently, any benefit derived out of the said fake Order shall be immediately recovered and criminal proceedings shall be initiated against the said person,” it reads—(KNO)
