Former judge, Gous-ul-Nissa is the 2nd Vigilance Commissioner

KL Report


Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra on Thursday, appointed former judge Gous-ul-Nissa Jeelani as the 2nd Vigilance Commissioner of the state.

The appointment of retired Principal District and Sessions Judge Gous-ul-Nissa Jeelani shall take effect from the date she assumes charge of the post in the State Vigilance Commission, said a notification issued by the state government.

With the appointment of Jeelani as Vigilance Commissioner, the vacancy in SVC has been filled and is now complete with a Chief Vigilance Commissioner (CVC) and two Vigilance Commissioners.

State Vigilance Commission in J&K was made operational with the appointment of former Director General of J&K Police, Kuldeep Khoda as CVC and former IAS officer R K Jerath as Vigilance Commissioner on February 11, and one post of VC had remained vacant.

It was nearly two years ago that the state Legislature had approved a bill for setting up of SVC in Jammu and Kashmir. However, its constitution was delayed due to finalisation of names for the posts of SVC and VCs.

A high level committee had approved the appointment of Khoda as the CVC and Senior retired IAS officer Jerath on May 28 last year.
