Jammu, May 22
Lieutenant-Governor (L-G) Girish Chandra Murmu today ordered commencing the selection process for the first phase of over 10,000 vacant government posts immediately in June.
Murmu was chairing a high-level meeting held at Raj Bhavan here to review the progress made for accelerated recruitment at various levels in the government with particular focus on Class-IV and Class-III vacancies.
The Accelerated Recruitment Committee submitted its preliminary proposals for recruitment to over 10,000 posts. This work had been completed at an unprecedented speed in less than 10 days.
An important feature of the recruitment would be that, in order to ensure just and fair representation, weightage would be given in the forthcoming recruitment to Class-IV vacancies to widows, destitute, divorced women and single mothers and candidates of those families from where there is no family member (parents or siblings) in government job.
For this, a self-attested affidavit will be submitted at the time of the application which will be verified and confirmed by the respective SDMs upon selection and before joining.
Further, the domicile certificate would be required only after a candidate gets selected to a particular post and not at the time of applying for the same.
The L-G also directed that there should be fair distribution of recruitment in terms of appropriate representation to remote districts. Accordingly, it was decided that additional marks would be given as weightage to candidates of a district for the district cadre posts to ensure that candidates from other districts do not take away these posts.
Navin K Choudhary, Chairman, Accelerated Recruitment Committee, said the departments had submitted vacancies of more than 11,000 Class-IV posts. There will be a common entrance test and no interview at all for Class-III and Class-IV vacancies.
