The Rude Shock
1/14/2022 10:57:11 PM

Jammu and Kashmir administration has given yet another rude shock to the job aspirants in frontier areas by re-advertising the posts in border battalions.
Aspirants, who had applied for the posts three years ago, have been left high and dry as the new advertisement notice issued by the government without increasing the vacancies has made the competition tough. These aspirants had qualified the physical tests and were waiting for written tests to be conducted. But the administration dropped a bombshell by re-advertising the posts without increasing the vacancies.
Youth, who had applied for these posts in 2019, have termed the new decision of the government as a cruel joke. They are demanding that the administration should not mix the new advertisement with the old notification. But the officials have made it clear to them that their pleas won’t be entertained and they will have to compete with the new entrants. The only concession that has been given to them is that they won’t have to appear for physical tests again.
When Defence Minister Rajnath Singh had visited the frontier areas in 2018 he had announced that the border battalions will be set up in the frontier areas to give a youth a chance to serve the country. Following his announcement the J&K Government issued a notification in early 2019 and invited applications for the recruitment process. Initially things happened at a fast pace but after J&K’s transition into a Union Territory things slowed down. The youth who were hoping that change in J&K’s status-quo would help them have been proven wrong. The helmsmen in order to show that they are announcing more and more posts are advertising old vacancies. It’s not justified. The candidates who have cleared the physical test should be called for written examinations and if the government wants to provide a chance to new entrants a new advertisement should be issued. The recent arbitrary decision needs to be withdrawn without any further delay. The Centre should take a note of what’s happening in J&K UT and how these manipulations are ruining the careers of youth. They are being given lollypops and the bureaucrats are trying to score Brownie Points. This attitude needs to change. A sincere effort is needed to provide employment to the youth and the promise which the Defence Minister of the country had made to them needs to be fulfilled.
