Early Times Report
Jammu, Dec 11: Even as thousands of degree-holding graduates and post graduates are jobless in this newly established Union Territory, the Jammu and Kashmir government has decided to have matric pass clerks, a move that will hit the employment prospects of the well-educated youth who are struggling to be employed in such sectors.
The Early Times has accessed official documents that suggest that the government has decided to promote matric pass peons and other Class IV employees as Junior Assistants in various departments.
Official sources said the decision to elevate such matric pass employees will be in place by December 15, 2019 by when the public notifications in this regard are supposed to be released.
The decision has drawn strict criticism from a section of officials who look at it as a "negative development that will be injustice with the well educated youth."
Officials said, as per the employment norms, a Junior Assistant is supposed to be having minimum qualification of being a degree holder Graduate with requisite speed of typing, and thus giving such a chair to the "far less educated is injustice."
A lobby of senior officials including those from Indian Administrative Services (IAS) and the Kashmir Administrative Services (KAS) are likely to pick up the issue with Lieutenant Governor GC Murmu.
"At a time when the Union Territory is supposed to set new standards of effective governance and administration, the decision to have matric pass clerks will be detrimental for the system because most of the official narration is filed by the clerks themselves and this is why their basic qualification is supposed to be graduate," explained some senior IAS officials on the condition of anonymity.
When contacted a senior official in the administration admitted that the government has decided to elevate matric pass Class IV employees as clerks. "This is supposed to be an administrative decision and there is nothing new in it," the official said.
