Srinagar: In an interview with 92.7 BIG FM Jammu, Chairman Jammu & Kashmir Services Selection Board, Mr Simrandeep Singh revealed that JKSSB Teacher Exam 2018 is likely to be conducted within one & a half month’s time.
Simrandeep Singh was invited by the radio station on the ‘demand of job aspirants’ who asked for the Chairman’s presence in the FM Studio to reply to their queries. The interview show was hosted by MJ Juhie.
Simrandeep said that as many as two lakh fifty thousand applications have been received for Teacher posts advertised in December last year. Brushing aside rumours, he said that JKSSB Teacher Exam 2018 is likely to be conducted within one & a half month’s time.
“There is no confusion, please study!” Simrandeep replied to an aspirant. “Please throw some light on Teacher exam. We are in confusion,” the aspirant had asked.
In reply to a question as to why Urdu was kept mandatory for the recruitment of Naib Tehsildar posts, Simrandeep said that JKSSB advertises jobs as per the rules laid down by the concerned Government Departments and there is nothing they can do about it.
He said that whenever a Department forwards vacant posts to JKSSB for recruitment, they try to advertise the posts as soon as possible but conducting exams does take a good bit of time due to inadequacy of logistics and manpower available with the recruitment board.
JKSSB Chairman also rued the fact that a lot of exams are stayed through Court orders unnecessarily with the intent of securing personal gains by some aspirants. He, however, maintained that there are certain PILs that are genuine and need to be considered seriously.
“We are helpless in conducting exams in batches because of the inadequacy of computers available for such exams. We received eighty thousand applications for posts which were under CGL and we have around thirty five hundred computers only,” Simrandeep said.
He further said that, “To avoid impersonation and cheating in exams, it is necessary to call only as many applicants as can be handled well by the available manpower.”
Simrandeep continued to be praised and complimented by the listeners and social media users during the interview also. “He is the best man to make the system clean and clear,” a social media user wrote on BIG 92.7 FM’s Facebook page.
