The Chief Minister’s Grievance Cell has suggested the J&K Services Selection Board (SSB) to work out a time-bound mechanism for filling up of vacancies in the government departments on the pattern of the Staff Selection Commission (SSC).

Taking cognisance of scores of grievances brought into his notice regarding the lacunas in the recruitment process, CM’s Grievance Cell coordinator Tassaduq Hussain Mufti, in a communication to the SSB chairman, has suggested some measures to expedite and streamline the selections made by the Board.

“All the referred posts as received by the SSB from various administrative departments should be advertised twice a year i.e. April and October, and subsequently the written test schedule should be fixed in advance like the SSC or the UPSC to be conducted biannually,” the communication states.

Also, the entire recruitment process should be time-bound and should get completed in all respects before the next session. “Frequent postponement of the written test should be discouraged,” it states, adding that the selected examination centres, preferably at the district headquarters, should be set up, which could be properly monitored, rather than setting up ill-managed centres with poor infrastructure in every nook of the state, which ultimately give rise to reports of mass copying and use of electronic gadgets.

“This can further result in the cancellation of the exam process and litigations,” it said. It has been further suggested that the basic and desired qualification along with experience is required to be fixed for every post once for all by constituting committees for the same and the government should be asked to update the recruitment rules wherever necessary.
