Another controversy surrounds SSB
Appointment Of Paramedics
Srinagar, Apr 8: A fresh controversy has surrounded the prime recruiting agency of Jammu and Kashmir, Services Selection Board (SSB).
The SSB on March 10 had issued a selection list of candidates for various paramedical posts under district and divisional cadres for which the applications were invited in 2010. However, official documents in possession of Greater Kashmir reveal huge variations in the marks of selected candidates from the merit list published in the newspapers on March 10.
The list prepared by the Government Medical College, Srinagar for its academic arrangement post contradicts the selection list prepared by the SSB with a huge variation in the marks of many candidates in the two lists.
As per the GMC list not just the merit of candidates is showing a change, but there is a huge variation in their diploma and 12th class marks appearing in the respective lists.
The documents reveal that a candidate (name withheld), who was selected for the X-ray assistant post at serial number 2 as per the earlier list, figured at serial number 8 as per the GMC list with entirely different marks.
A candidate in the SSB list issued on March 10 was shown having obtained 2051 marks (85.46 percent) in his two year diploma course. However, the GMC list that lying with GK shows him at serial no. 8 with 1751 marks.
Similarly, the candidate, who had obtained the grand total of 851 marks in his diploma and appeared at serial no. 7 in the SSB selection list, is figuring at serial number 29 in the GMC list.
Last month (March 18) this newspaper has carried a news story that SSB is selecting candidates allegedly through forged certificates for various paramedical posts.
The report had said the candidates appearing in the selection list for various paramedical posts had forged their diploma and 12th class certificates as marks written on the selection list were higher than their actual marks.
When contacted, the SSB Chairman BD Bhagat said: “We will investigate the matter and if anyone is found selected through fraud or forgery, we will reject his selection.”
“The board will also issue notices to the institutes where such candidates have completed their diplomas and degrees to ascertain the facts,” he said.
