Srinagar: The J&K Services Selection Board (JKSSB) today approved selection lists for 394 posts, wherein the candidature of 270 candidates was cleared for recommendation to various indenting departments for the appointment.
The selection lists were approved at the 141st meeting of JKSSB held here last evening under the chairmanship of Zubair Ahmad, Chairman, J&K Services Selection Board.
The meeting was attended by the members of the Board including Anil Koul, Rachna Sharma, Vivek Sharma, Prof Tasleema Peer, Ajay Kumar Sharma, Musheer Ahmad Mirza, Nawab Din, Mohammad Saleem and Secretary JKSSB, Ranjeet Singh and other officers.
According to JKSSB spokesman, as many as 124 posts requiring technical qualifications and experience remained unfilled because of non-availability of eligible candidates.
The Board also decided to reconstitute the Sub-Committee setup in 140th Board meeting to scrutinize the cases of withheld recommendations, necessitated due to the transfer of some members.
On the recommendations of the Sub-Committee constituted in the last meeting, 43 withheld cases have already been cleared for being forwarded to the indenting departments.
In a significant decision, the Board agreed to a four-stage SoP to be put in place, after getting it approved by the Government, for effecting cancellations in respect of candidates, who after figuring in the selection lists / waiting lists, do not furnish the necessary deficient documents.
“The streamlining of the cancellation issue will not only pave way for the candidates in the waiting lists to make it into the selection lists but will also help the candidates next in order of merit to make it to the waiting lists,” the spokesman said, adding the decision shall also cater to the requirements of the indenting departments, who keep on requesting the Board for forwarding candidates next in order of merit, after the selection list candidates and those in waiting lists fail to join.
The Board has also designated Malik Suhail, Under Secretary, J&K Services Selection Board, to be the Public Relations Officer of the J&K Services Selection Board in addition to his own duties.
