JK Admin to trash SRO 202 before Oct 31, this year
Relief for qualified youth in offing
9/18/2019 10:30:31 PM
Early Times Report
JAMMU, Sept 18: The Jammu and Kashmir administration is all set scrap the anti-youth SRO 202 which was enacted in the state in a bid to give peanuts to the highly qualified youth in the name of salary.
As per the sources who have been privy to these vital developments, the government here has taken serious note about certain contents of the Job policy in accordance to which no salary is given to the new appointees for the minimum period of five years and they are being told to remain contend with the mere honorarium.
However, there are reports that under the new set of rules which will come into force from Oct 31, 2019, the SRO 202 is likely to become thing of a past. "How could you give peanuts to the highly qualified youth. This goes against the spirit of justice and impartiality. There are ways being explored over how these SROs can be trashed in near future," says an official.
Under the SRO 202, during the period of first five years, the government appointee shall be entitled to the minimum of scale of pay along with the grade pay applicable to the post against which he is appointed. And further, every appointee shall after completion of five years period on probation be entitled to fixation of pay in the time-scale of pay applicable to the post against which 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, last 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
