BOSE advertises advertised posts
Srinagar, Jan 19: In what may be seen as sheer injustice with the candidates, the Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education has sought fresh applications from the candidates who had already appeared in the interview for the post of Junior Assistant in 2007.
On January 1, the Board of School Education invited applications for the posts of Junior Assistants while it had already invited applications for the same post on June 3, 2006 and conducted written test, computer test, typing test and interview for final selection.
At that time 1000 candidates had applied and 84 were short listed and subsequently interviewed by the Board for final selection of 28 posts, a Board official said. From then the selection list was kept under wraps for some unknown reasons, he added.
Aggrieved candidates told Greater Kashmir that they had appeared in the interview in March 2007. They said after reaching to the interview stage they were waiting that final list would be declared. Till date no such list came out but Board has sought fresh applications for the same posts now, they said adding “Several of us have crossed the age bar now.”
Muhammad Huraim, an aspirant of Batmaloo, said he appeared in interview after passing the written, computer and typing test, adding, “I was waiting to find place in final selection list but that was never declared. I have crossed the age bar now.”
Tahir Ahmad Shah, another aspirant, said Board authorities should give preference to them in the new selection list.
In yet another case, the Board sought applications for one post of Public Relations Officer in 2007. It charged the candidates Rs 500 for application forms. A delegation of aspirants told Greater Kashmir that Board is not revealing the status of the selection list. They expressed apprehensions that Board was trying to accommodate some blue eyed candidate for the post.
While talking to Greater Kashmir, the Chairman BOSE, Professor Desh Bandhu Gupta, accused the former authorities of the Board for not furnishing the final list.
He said no separate selection list would be declared for the candidates who had appeared in the interview in 2007. When asked about the eligibility of the candidates who had applied in 2006 and were over-age now, he said, “They are eligible and can apply again. When asked about the present status of the Public Relations Officer post, he said, “We are restructuring the Board and will decide which post we need and which we don’t need.”
“If we don’t need the PRO in the Board we will refund the money the candidates had deposited for buying the application form.”
