Appointees want holistic view on scrapping SRO
8/3/2018 11:55:03 PM
Early Times Report

Jammu, Aug 3: The demand for scrapping SRO 202, which has proved disastrous for talented youth of the state, remains pending for past many years.
Under the SRO 202, during the period of first five years, a government appointee shall be entitled to the minimum of scale of pay along with the grade pay applicable to the post against which he or she is appointed.
And further, every appointee shall, after completion of five years on probation, be entitled to fixation of pay in the time-scale of pay applicable to the post against which (s)he is appointed.
This rule was enacted in the state under the regime of the PDP-BJP coalition amid much opposition from the social and civil society groups who termed it tantamount to slaughtering the abilities of the talented youth and rendering them into monkeys being thrown the peanuts.
As the Governor administration continues to resolve the issues that pertain to the employees including the recently ordered removal of the pay anomaly, those appointed under the SRO 202 want the government to take a holistic view on the issue.
"Those whose salaries continue to swell with each passing year don't even possess half of our qualifications. Yet they are there calling shots in the administration and we are being made to suffer without any fault," says an employee recruited under SRO-202- popularly known as the new job policy in Jammu and Kashmir.
Others from his cadre stated that they were hopeful that the government will take a decision in this regard and scarp the SRO forever but nothing of this sort was done and we are left to feed our families with meagre amounts being given to us as so-called 'salaries'. "This is not a salary. These are the mere peanuts given for some reasons best known to the government. If we work at par with other employee and have even more qualifications than they have then why are we being discriminated and left out," says another appointee.
Pertinent to mention here that the previous coalition government on January 9, this year, nullified the reports about it revoking the new job policy under which people appointed inducted in government service shall draw a meagre salary for the period of five years. The state government clarified on the floor of the house then that it has no proposal under consideration to revoke the SRO 202 of 2015.
The then Health and Medical Education minister in a written reply to legislator Neelam Kumar Langeh stated that there is no such proposal under consideration at Health and Medical education department to revoke SRO202 which according to the minister was issued pursuant to a conscious and thoughtful decision of the government.
SRO 202 was issued by government of Jammu and Kashmir on June 30, 2015, and remains applicable thereafter. SRO 202 is a set of rules issued by the Governor (N N Vohra) of Jammu and Kashmir under the powers conferred by the proviso to section 124 of the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir.
