Officers at RIMS worry as new director streamlines matters relating to financial matters

Imphal, April 28: The appointment of RK Dinesh (IAS) as the officiating director of the Regional Institute of Medical Sciences, it now appears, has made an impact on other sections of the institute besides the teaching faculty and the high ranked administrators who had already created a major ruckus calling for his exit citing from rule books that non-medical civil servants do not meet the criteria for holding administrative posts in medical institutions like that of director and medical superintendant.
It was learnt from reliable sources that officials of the institute have slipped into a state of panic since the takeover materialised. Although it is still not officially confirmed, there is a possibility that an unofficial instruction from the officiating director asking the subordinate staffs not to move some specific files related to financial and administrative matters had led to the anxious moment for the latter.
Some officers including those in the account section has reportedly advised their lower staffs not to reveals some of the files to the officiating director until he leaves office and a new director takes charge.
Consequently, the piles of files belonging to these categories censored by the officiating director accumulating on the tables of senior officials have grown in size over the time and they are unable to forward them to the incumbent director.
The engineers working at the central workshop which is the engineering section of RIMS and functioning under the chief account officer have their daily chores substantially reduced after the instruction against processing of the files came into effect. Reports said nowadays the engineers report for duty but return home after biding their time at the office as only few assignments are allotted to them.
The new director has also set up a rigorous regiment for the employees of the institute with the plans to rectify their past mistakes, reduce complaints and usher in competency, it has been claimed by inside sources. In many instances, he had directed the officials to process scores of files which were pending for 6-12 months after receiving complaints about the situation from other staffs.
One refreshing development is that the attendance of staffs of central workshop have jumped significantly lately after the new director issued a warning of punishment in case there is proof of dereliction of duty.  
There are charges against the senior officials of the institutes that their lack of work ethics and constant negligence have resulted in delaying of processes for procuring machines, equipment and life saving drugs.
Now, due to corrective actions taken up by the officiating director there is a new optimism among many staff of the institute that the existing lack of intent and complacency among the officials towards all round growth of the institute will become a thing of the past as he had a good grasp of the wrongdoings happening at RIMS during the last many years.
