Dr Kaiser appointed as Principal GMC Srinagar


The administration on Friday gave charge of Principal Government Medical College (GMC) to Dr Kaiser Ahmad, days after Jammu and Kashmir High Court chided the government for not replacing Dr Samia Rashid despite quashing of a cabinet order by it.

“Consequent upon the directions given by the Chief Secretary, J&K, Dr Kaiser Ahmad, HOD Pediatrics, Government Medical College, Srinagar is hereby directed to take over the charge of Principal, Government Medical College Srinagar with immediate effect,” reads an order issued by Divisional Commissioner Kashmir Baseer Ahmad Khan.

The interim arrangement has been made in pursuance of the directions by the High Court, the order said.

Earlier the Division Bench of Justice Ali Mohammad Magrey and Justice Sanjeev Kumar while setting aside the Writ Court judgment whereby the appointment of Dr Samia Rashid as Principal GMC Srinagar was held right and reasonable directed the Government to take appropriate decision for appointment of the suitable person on the post within four weeks time.
