KHALID GUL/TARIQ RASOOL
Islamabad (Anantnag)/Bandipora, Mar 4: The aspirants for the posts of Accounts Assistant (District cadre) advertised by the Service Selection Board have alleged large scale discrepancies in the short listing of candidates.
The recruitment agency, they say “has considered the score of Bachelor of Education over the marks scored in graduation while short listing the candidates according to merit.”
The SSRB while advertising 38 posts for District (Islamabad) Anantnag, vide notification No 07 of 2010 the eligibility for which was minimum graduation, “decided to allot 70 points for graduation and 10 points for post graduation.”
However, the aspirants said “the SSRB has considered the B.Ed, as graduation too as a result of which most of the meritorious candidates are not featuring in the list.” “The Board has considered those having B.Ed as the criteria for 70 points and not their basic graduation degrees,” aspirants said.
They said as most of the students secure a good percentage in B.Ed, so those without it hardly feature in the list. “We fail to understand what the B.Ed, which is purely a professional degree for teachers has to do with Accounts Assistant posts,” said Zahoor Ahmad Sheikh, an MCA from Kashmir University. He said though he had 60 percent in BCA and 73 percent in MCA and out scores those short listed by far, but despite that doesn’t feature in the list.
Alleging discrepancies in the list, hundreds of aspirants on Friday staged protest against the Service Selection Board in North Kashmir’s Bandipora district.
“SSB officials have framed rules to accommodate blued eyed candidates,” said Sheikh Saleem, a BCA student.
The protestors sought the intervention of Chief Minister in this regard.
The aspirants who had applied for the posts in other districts including Ganderbal have also expressed dismay over the SSB’s move and threatened to launch agitation if the recruitment agency failed to rectify the ‘error.’
When contacted, SSB, Chairman B D Bhagat said, “We have considered all degrees let it be Agriculture, Engineering, Arts, Science or Commerce and since B.Ed too being a bachelors, we have considered it too.” He said the candidates with graduation and B.Ed both, they had considered either of the degrees.
