Baramulla: The position of the Additional Deputy Commissioner (ADC) here has been left vacant for the past month by the General Administration Department (GAD), much to the anguish of the people in this district.
The position fell vacant after the former ADC, Nazir Ahmad Baba, was transferred and posted as the ADC Ganderbal. People complain that their applications for various official matters are being pushed back.
“I applied for a state subject certificate two months ago, after completing all formalities from Tehsil office Wagoora and then in DC office Baramulla. But my certificate is pending because there is no ADC,” Sajad Ahmad, a student, said.
A group of locals from Achabal village of Rafiabad, who visited ADC office Baramulla, said that their files for certain official procedures are pending in the ADC’s office. They said they have been visiting the office for a month now, but there is no progress in their cases.
Officials say that the decision for the appointment is not subject to the approval of the cabinet.
