JAMMU — The Administrative Council (AC), chaired by Shri Manoj Sinha, Lieutenant Governor, met on Monday and approved the reinstatement of provisions allowing for the creation of wait lists in government recruitment processes.

In attendance were Rajeev Rai Bhatnagar, Advisor to the Lieutenant Governor; Atal Dulloo, Chief Secretary; and Mandeep Kumar Bhandari, Principal Secretary to the Lieutenant Governor.

The AC’s decision reverses the amendments made to various recruitment rules, including the J&K Civil Services Decentralization and Recruitment Rules, 2010; the J&K Appointment of Class-IV (Special Recruitment) Rules, 2020; the J&K Combined Competitive Examination Rules, 2018, and Business Regulations of JKPSC/JKSSB, among others.

Furthermore, the Council granted a one-time exemption to recruiting agencies to create wait lists within six months for select lists issued since the previous decision. However, this exemption is contingent upon the wait lists being drawn within the validity period of the select list and ensuring that resultant vacancies due to non-joining of selected candidates have not been re-advertised.

This decision is expected to expedite the filling of vacancies, reduce delays in the re-referral of vacancies, decrease the time taken in subsequent selections, and enable candidates to secure employment before reaching the upper age limit.
