J&K Public Service Commission - JKPSC

SRINAGAR — The selection list of Associate Professors (APs), declared in November last year by the Jammu and Kashmir Public Service Commission (JKPSC), is yet to be forwarded to the Jammu and Kashmir Higher Education Department (JKHED), that has left candidates depressed and distraught.

Selected candidates, while speaking to the news agency KNO, said that the selection list of Assistant Professors in seven subjects including Botany, Political Science, Urdu, Sociology, Electronic Science, Geology and Hindi were announced from October 17 to November 8 last year.

They said that they have been eagerly waiting for the last five months but unfortunately, the list is not being forwarded to the concerned department.

Bilal Ahmad, one of the selected Assistant Professors, said that 23 candidates were selected in Botany followed by 11 in Political Science, Urdu 19, Sociology 26, Hindi 13, Electronic Science 8 and Geology 7.

He said that firstly there was no Chairman of JKPSC for months together and that was being said to be the reason for the delay in not forwarding the list to the concerned department. He said that around one month has passed since the new Chairman took over, but the list has not been forwarded to the concerned department.

“The selected candidates are highly depressed and distraught due to the prolonged delay caused by JKPSC for the recommendations of these lists to JKHED,” they added.

“Whenever candidates try to approach the concerned officials of JKPSC, every time they respond by saying that it will be done within a week,” they said.

They have sought the attention of Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha and Chairman JKPSC in this regard.
