Fast track recruitment set to begin in J&K
5/29/2020 12:00:20 AM

JAMMU, May 28: Keeping with its promise of a simple, quick and transparent recruitment process, the Government has decided to approve the Jammu and Kashmir Appointment to Class-IV (Special Recruitment) Rules, 2020 to lay down the procedure as well as the criteria for selection to all Class IV posts. The decision in this regard was taken in a meeting of the Administrative Council held under the Chairmanship of Lieutenant Governor, Girish Chandra Murmu.
This was stated by Principal Secretary Power Development Department and Information, Rohit Kansal, who is also the Government Spokesperson, at a press conference here today. He informed that the decision of laying a quick and simple procedure for filling up of Class IV vacancies follows the decision of the Government to notify over 10,000 posts for Accelerated Recruitment at all levels- Doctors, Vets, Panchayat Accounts Assistants and Class-IV employees. Kansal said that the accelerated recruitment process shall be started with Class IV vacancies. The Accelerated Recruitments Committee has already identified 7052 Class-IV vacant posts at the UT, Divisional and District cadre levels in various departments of the Government. All these posts shall be filled up through a Special Recruitment Drive. The concerned departments shall place their indents to the Services Selection Board (SSB) through the General Administration Department. The SSB shall be sole agency for the Special Recruitment Drive.
He said that in order to simplify the process and cut down all delays, the Administrative Council has also ordered that all concerned departments will make necessary amendments/ modifications in their relevant Recruitment Rules based on this decision alone and that no separate approval shall be sought for this purpose. Speaking about the procedure and criterion laid down in the Jammu and Kashmir Appointment to Class-IV (Special Recruitment) Rules, 2020, the spokesperson said that these rules address many of the deficiencies of the earlier rules, adding that these Rules clearly define the procedure for referral of Class-IV vacancies, clubbing of the vacancies, preparation of wait lists, select lists etc. with the aim to fill all advertised vacancies within a period of one year, extendable by six months.
Giving details of the selection process, Kansal said that the marks obtained in the written test of 100 marks will have primacy in the selection criteria. There will be no interview. He reiterated that no documents including domicile certificate will be required to be submitted at the time of filling the application form. Explaining the significant features of the rules, the spokesperson added that the rules provide for additional weightage to various marginalized categories. He elaborated that that in order to give benefit to the marginalized sections comprising of widows, divorced/judicially separated women and orphan girls keeping into consideration the extreme compassion involved in their case, an additional weightage of five marks shall be given to such candidates. Similarly, an additional weightage of five marks shall be given to those candidates with no family member in government service. Daily Rated Workers and other similar candidates who have been engaged for at least five years shall be given an additional weightage of five marks. They shall also be given a 5 years age relaxation in the upper age limit.
