Employees demand revocation of SRO-202
2/23/2020 9:27:53 PM
Early Times Report

Jammu, Feb 23: Several employee leaders have demanded revocation of SRO-202. A joint press conference of J&K Permanent Government Employees (SRO-202) Association was held today under Chairmanship of President Dr. Shafeen Koul, EJAC President, Babu Hussain Malik and Jammu University Scholar, Sohil Malik at Press Club Jammu.
While briefing the media persons, Dr. Koul said that the permanent Government Employees recruited after multi-tier selection process by Jammu and Kashmir Public Service Commission (JKPSC), Jammu and Kashmir Services Selection Board (JKSSB) and other Government recruiting agencies under the new job policy (SRO-202 of 2015) have been victimised by the policy makers, under this discriminatory job policy, we are forced to remain on probation for a period of 5 years which is quite disproportionate and against the J&K-CSR (1956) and DoPT rules.
As per the rule 07 of this job policy (SRO-202), recruitment to different posts was assured to be completed on fast track basis (within 03 Months) but it took more than three years to complete the recruitment process in most of the cases. Despite working on substantive posts borne on the establishment of different Govt departments, which have been created way back by the erstwhile state cabinet in 1970s, 1980s we are only given the Basic Pay component of the salary and are denied all the allowances like DA, HRA, CCA and unfortunately even annual increments for the initial 05 long years, The Budget allocated for these posts is diverted to sectors unknown.
Most of us are posted hundreds of kilometres away from the home districts in the remotest areas of the erstwhile state like (Tangdar, Gurez, Karna, Kargil& Ladakh etc) and some others at New Delhi. Logically we should have been given incentives but unfortunately are denied even the usual allowances by the policymakers. If Justice and Equality really exists, then how come people serving in remotest areas are not entitled to any allowances
The biggest issue faced by SRO-202 employees is that we are entitled to annual increments only from the 6th year of the service which is in clear contravention to J&K- CSR (1956) and DoPT rules.

Denial of the due annual increments will have a detrimental effect on our service and pension career and will even lead to pay anomalies in future.
While as a very similar fixed salary mode job policy, enacted in 2011 was scrapped by erstwhile State cabinet vide its decision No. 87/06/2014 dated 21/05/2014 and Govt order No. 156 F of 2014 dated 27/06/2014 following massive public demand.
They appealed Lieutenant Governor to completely revoke the SRO-202 within a week’s time; otherwise the consequences of letting down the youth of Jammu and Kashmir would be detrimental for all.
