Social Welfare announces 'fastest-ever' recruitment to absorb 'influential' aspirants
1 week deadline, Salary Rs 50,000 per month, no receipt for job application

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Feb 20: In brazen violation of recruitment rules, the Social Welfare Department has come up with a "dubious" process for recruitment, whereby "influential candidates" close to a minister, are likely to be absorbed in government sector for salary as huge as Rs 50,000 per month.
The State Mission Directorate Integrated Child Development Scheme ICDS has come up with five job openings with "fat salaries."
As per the notice issued by the State Mission Directorate ICDS vide number 1 of 2018, the government plans "Engagement of staff for Society for Creating Richer Human Opportunities (SCRHO)."
"The Social Welfare Department Government of Jammu and Kashmir intends to fill up various positions for is Society namely Society for Creating richer Human Opportunities. Accordingly online applications are invited from eligible candidate on the email address [email protected] by or before 17-2-2018 upto 4 PM in the form on prescribe format," reads the notification.
For the post of Program Manager with one vacancy, the salary is Rs 50,000 per month, whereas for three vacancies of Office Management Executive, the salary if 30,000 each and for the single post of Accountant, the salary is Rs 25,000 per month.
What raises eyebrows over the recruitment is that the aspirants were asked to file applications within week through email only.
The officials said this "dubious system of recruitment" without even a proper system of submitting forms, is all the way shady. "Why submission of forms through email, without any proper receipt for submission of form and why so short a deadline of a week to file resumes," asked a senior official in the General Administrative Department.
Officials said as per norms, such vacancies should have been filled only through JK Public Service Commission or the JK Services Selection Board. "A department itself becoming a recruitment agency only means that it has dubious motives behind the recruitment," said a senior official.
As already reported by Early Times, a minister in the state government had allegedly asked a Mission Directorate to "absorb his favorites" for government jobs.
While the officials had pleaded that the Social Welfare Department is not a recruitment agency, the minister had allegedly asked them to take inspiration from "Kehwa Man".
This influential "Kehwa man" who was himself appointment without any interview for a job equivalent to cadre of Commissioner Secretary, subsequently appointed over 12 youth "known to him" into government jobs in less than a fortnight.
Despite a hue and cry over the recruitments made by the "Kehwa man" the government failed to act against him. "The prospective recruitments in Social Welfare Department seem to be next big fraud after Kehwa Man's dubious recruitments," the GAD officials said.
A senior official in the Social Welfare Department said they were under "tremendous pressure to opt for recruitment at an earliest."
Despite repeated attempts the minister couldn't be contacted for comments.
