Candidates allege favouritism
ISLAMABAD TEACHERS LIST
Islamabad (Anantnag), Oct 5: Many candidates, who had applied for the posts of teacher in this South Kashmir’s Islamabad (Anantnag) district, have alleged favoritism in the selection process.
They said that meritorious candidates were “deliberately” awarded lesser points in the interview to pave way for the selection of candidates with “poor academic record.”
“I have 71 percent marks in class 12th and after that have passed my graduation, post-graduation, B.Ed and M.Ed from Kashmir University securing 63, 70, 68 and 68 percent marks respectively. But in the recently conducted interview for the post of teachers I was awarded only 10 marks out of 20 in interview, as I result of which I could not make to the final list,” said Jasiya Aziz.
She alleged that many candidates who had below 50 percent marks in class 12th, graduation and B.Ed and were not even post-graduates were awarded 19 marks in the interview and were featuring in the final list. Another candidate Arif Bhat said, “I have 70 percent marks in class 12th and more than 70 percent in graduation and post graduation from Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) and again 72 percent in B.Ed from Kashmir University, but despite doing well in the interview I was allotted mere 10 marks.”
Another candidate, Asiya Gatoo, a post-graduate with B.Ed said that though she had 43 academic points, but in the interview, she was given only six points. “I fail to understand how come the candidates who had less than 36 academic points feature in the list while the meritorious candidates have been left out,” she said. “This is a sheer injustice,” she added.
Similarly, Asifi Jan, a postgraduate and M.Ed candidate said that she was allotted only nine points in the interview despite having 45.02 as academic merit.
When contacted Service Selection Board (SSB) chairman, B D Baghat said, “I assure you that I will check the list personally and see that no injustice is being done against any candidate”. He, however, said that sometimes candidates with not so good academic record perform well in the interview than those have better merit.
