Shafi Dar and Shafi Dar Private Limited – Jammu and Kashmir State Cooperative Bank


You can call Jammu and Kashmir State Cooperative Bank by its original name. Or you can call it Shafi Dar and Shafi Dar Private Limited. Shafi Dar is the former Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir State Cooperative Bank.

Shafi Dar’s unique talents have not got the recognition they deserve. One must make enquiries with the Guinness Book of World Records whether they have a category titled the following:

How many persons from one’s own clan has a man employed in a state institution headed by him. Shafi Dar may win the contest with distinction. After all, how many men will you find who have employed at least 62 persons from their clan in the state institution of which they are the Chairman?

Shafi Dar is a resident of Majeed Bagh, Barzulla, Srinagar. The state-owned bank is part of the Ministry of Finance, Government of India. All the people appointed by Shafi Dar were doled out government jobs at high pay scales and secured by after-retirement pension.

The Shafi Dar Script For Bhand Pather

We Kashmiris have a rich tradition of Bhand Pather, which would at times bring to us situations that were so comical that one could only laugh and laugh more. Shafi Dar has written a new script of Bhand Pather for the Kashmiri folk artistes. Dar acted as the Lord And Master of Jammu and Kashmir State Cooperative Bank.

Finally, Dar was sacked by Jammu and Kashmir State Cooperative Bank for his sterling role as grand job provider to the House of Shafi Dar. Has the state also initiated action against the 62 persons appointed by him illegally, and many more backdoor appointments? No. Look at who all were doled out jobs by Shafi Dar at the Jammu and Kashmir State Cooperative Bank.

Dar doled out government jobs to his own relatives, to the relatives of his relatives, to the relatives of the relatives of his relatives. No, this is not a new tongue twister being written by KZINE. We are only bringing to you the sheer genius of Mohd Shafi Dar.

Here are some of the relatives to whom government jobs were doled out.
Maternal uncle’s daughter-in-law
Daughter’s sister-in-law
Relative of sister
Relative of daughter-in-law
Relative of Niece
Next-door Neighbour
Relative of Board Member/ Partner Bilal Ahmad Kuttay
Sister’s relative from in-laws
Relative’s son-in-law
Nephew of close friend Mushtaq Ahmad Dar
Relative of daughter-in-law

Government Jobs For Personal Hair Cutter, Family Hair Cutter, Personal Tailor’s Wife…

In addition to the relatives of relatives and further, Shafi Dar also doled out jobs to his neighbors and to relatives of his neighbors. Dar’s long list of accomplishments continues. Government jobs were provided to the following people associated with Dar.

Personal driver
Personal sweeper
Personal gardener
Personal tailor’s wife
Personal hair-cutter
Family hair cutter
Milkman’s grandson and so forth.
Neighbour, washing private vehicles of present Secretary of Cooperative Department

Why did Shafi Dar Leave Out The Kandurr?

Government jobs were being doled out like shireen and badam.  We at KZINE really cannot figure out why did Dar leave out the poor men at the clothing store from whom he used to buy his sherwani and pajama? Why were government jobs not provided to them? What wrong had they done? Why didn’t he provide government jobs to the son or daughter of the neighborhood Kandurr? What wrong had the poor Kandurr done to be deprived in this way? Dar owes an explanation to the state for ignoring these poor men.

This spate of recruitments was done not only for Level 4 posts but also for clerical posts. An investigation by Jammu and Kashmir Anti Corruption Bureau revealed that Shafi Dar made big money by making illegal appointments in Jammu and Kashmir State Cooperative Bank and also through backdoor appointments.
