Early Times Report
Jammu, Sept 18: Selection of drivers in Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology-Jammu (SKUAST-J) has been mired in controversy, with aspirants alleging favouritism in the selection process.
The aspirants have alleged that a candidate who had been working in the university on contractual basis but had failed in the driving test has been selected.
The SKUAST-J had advertised various posts of drivers vide two separate notifications issued in 2016 and 2018.
As per the selection list, one candidate who had been working on contractual basis in the university for last many years has been selected. "He had appeared in the driving test in presence of other aspirants. He however failed in the driving test. Even the test conducting authority, RTO Jammu, had asked him to come out of the vehicle as he had failed", an aspirant, who also appeared in the driving test, told Early Times.
He said those who had qualified the driving test and had higher qualification marks were ignored by the SKUAST-J authorities, but the ones who had failed were selected, due to reasons best known to the authorities. The aspirants said that the SKUAST-J had devised criteria of selection in such a way that "their favourite could make their way into the selection list."
"It is a million dollar question as how a candidate who had applied for the post of driver and failed in the driving test made it to the selection list", the aspirants said, adding that even there was no video-recording of the driving tests.
"The whole examination, interview process, or the driving tests were a fixed match and the blue-eyed candidates were assured by the varsity authorities that they would be selected at any cost," said the aspirants.
An official of the State Road Transport Corporation said that whenever they select drivers, the first short-listing criteria is driving test. "Those who fail in the driving tests are not allowed to appear in next round of selection process. Drivers should be selected on merit list in any institute, whether government, semi-government or private", the SRTC official said.
When contacted, Regional Transport Officer (RTO) Jammu, Deep Kumar, who was acting as expert during the driving test, confirmed that the SKUAST-J authorities did not do video-recording of the driving tests.
Registrar of the university, Rajesh Talwar, refused to comment on the issue and asked to send questions in written or through RTI application.
