Contentious SRO in APD creates impediment for JAEO, AEO aspirants
Decades on, no post referred by Deptt
8/12/2020 11:51:45 PM

JAMMU, Aug 12: The unemployed agricultural graduates have been feeling betrayed due to a new SRO introduced by the Government in the Agricultural Production Department (APD), which restricts the new recruitment avenues for the aspirants.
The SRO is being termed as contentious, arbitrary and discriminatory which stops unemployed qualified aspirants from getting jobs in APD, which can be gauged from the fact that it has been more than a decade, not a single post has been referred by the department.
Sources in the department told Early Times that the government had introduced a new SRO-442 in the Agricultural Production Department with some controversial amendments wherein it was mentioned that the recruitment of Junior Agriculture Extension Officer (JAEO) will be done 100% on promotional basis.
“Earlier there was provision of 60:40 basis (i.e. 60% by direct recruitment and 40% by promotional quota) but due to this new SRO, the Agriculture Technocrats have been suffering due to space for them in APD,” they said.
They further said that despite the fact that more than 500 posts of JAEO are lying vacant in JKAPD, due to SRO-442 these posts are not being referred for direct recruitment, which directly violates fundamental right to equal opportunities.
“In case of the posts of Agriculture Extension Officer (AEO) in gazzetted cadre wherein the ratio between direct and promotional quota was 50:50 under SRO-179 but again the government came with a new provision under SRO-433 in which the quota between direct and promotional quota was set as 20:80, basis i.e. 20% by direct recruitment and 80% by promotional Quota, which has blocked the chances of young professionals with Postgraduate and Doctoral degrees in the subject of agriculture,” they informed.
They further said that it has been more than a decade that not a single post of AEO has been referred by the Agriculture Production Department under direct recruitment quota whereas these posts are only being filled on promotion basis, although the posts under direct recruitment quota are lying vacant in the department in hundreds.
