SSB decision draws flak; aspirants aghast
REJECTING DISTANCE MODE DEGREES
Srinagar, Apr 8: The refusal of Service Selection Board to accept degrees obtained from outside State universities through distance mode for selection to teacher posts has triggered resentment among unemployed youth in Valley.
The aspirants told Greater Kashmir that this ‘discriminatory’ move would ruin career of thousands of students who had pursued studies through these universities.
According to them, they were surprised when SSB issued notification on November 12 through advertisement number 07 of 2010 for filling the vacant teacher post saying only Kashmir University, Jammu University, IGNOU, Moulana Azad National Urdu University and DOEACC degrees were valid.
“We were shocked when we were told that our degrees are not valid. Why anyone from the State Government was not coming forward to close these study centres. Why any action was not taken against the persons who are running such centres in the State,” they questioned.
They said notification issued by Higher Education Department ‘contradicts’ the University Grants Commission policy and orders.
The SSB in this notification OM No: HE/LEGAL/2010 has quoted in clear words with reference to paragraphs (J) of notification issued by Higher education on 30 March 2010 that other than IGNOU and DOEACC degrees or diploma obtained under distance will not be accepted until these non-state degrees or diploma will not be accepted by Kashmir university Jammu university and also by Board of Technical Education.
But it runs contrary to the order in which it has been written that University recognized by UGC, stand automatically recognized for the purpose of employment if approved by Distance Education Council throughout the country.
Most of the candidates questioned as to why “SSB and other departments were accepting these degrees up to 2009”. “Why SSB and PSC accepted all these degrees through distance mode till end of 2009,” they asked.
