Despite CM's assurance, file gathering dust in Secretariat
6K NYCs bear brunt of official apathy

Early Times Report

Jammu, Sept 13: The fate of more than 6000 candidates engaged under National Youth Corps (NYC) scheme continues to hang in balance, as government has not yet taken a decision on ending their plight.
It was in 2015 that the candidates had a hunger strike for many months to demand re-engagement and regularisation of their services as promised by the government. But till date, these youth are yet to get anything from the state dispensation except promises. The scheme was launched by the government of India after the 2010 summer unrest to tap the potential of the youth and "channel their energy towards nation building".
The NYC was launched by amalgamating the then existing two volunteer schemes-National Service Volunteer (NSV) and Rashtriya Sadbhawana Yojana (RSY).
What could reveal that dilatory mode of functioning in the state is that on February 23, this year, the NYC deputations met the Chief Minister and apprised her about their plight. The CM assured the aggrieved candidates that issue would be resolved ahead of the Budget session of the Assembly that was scheduled to be held in April. However, the bureaucratic delay continues to act as a spoilsport in the entire process.
Sources within the dispensation revealed that the file pertaining to the engagement of the NYCs in various schools and higher secondary institutes has been kept in abeyance in the department of School Education and no measure is being taken to wipe out the dust from the shelved file.
The aggrieved candidates told Early Times that they were assured regularisation at several instances by the incumbent regime but no action on ground has till date been taken. "We even met the CM on Eid recently and narrated our ordeal. She again assured us that the issue would be resolved soon. We request the CM to have some mercy on our families," said one of the aggrieved candidates.
Meanwhile, sources within the government divulge that the bureaucratic delays are marring the entire process as the CM has given go ahead to the engagement of these NYCs.
Reports inform that after that the Finance department issued orders for Aadhar Based Biometric Identification and Skill Profiling of all daily wagers in the state, the NYC volunteers too were asked to get enrolled. "It took only a month for the NYCs to get enrolled and have their Aadhar Based Biometric Identification and Skill Profiling with the government. Despite the completion of all the required procedures, the babus are delaying the file of these aggrieved people," sources said. Interestingly, in September in 2015, NYC volunteers agitated against the present government by launching hunger strike in Srinagar.
