Recruitment scam in Nazira health dept

A huge scam in health department seems to have raised doubts over the Government’s sincerity to inject new hopes in the entire department.

The scam that rocked the heavily manned department took place in the recruitment of various staff members where genuine educated unemployed have been deprived of their privileges.

The scam surfaced in Nazira when the journalists moved the authorities with the help of RTI seeking the details of the recruitment process and the selected candidates. The joint director office, which deals with the recruitment process is not in a position to provide the relevant documents to justify the selection and recruitment of staffs. Even the copies of the appointment orders are not available.

The recruitment process under question is believed to have taken place for huge amount of money in the office of the joint director’s office.

In many cases, only transfer orders have been produced for being posted which the laid down government procedure never allows.

Many local organizations, parties and individuals have demanded a thorough enquiry into the scam where people by dint of money has managed to get job in the department.
