Govt initiates process for fast tracking recruitment

Formal Orders Issued For Prof Peer’s Appointment As Consultant

GK NEWS NETWORK

Jammu, Dec 13: The state government Thursday issued formal orders for appointment of Prof Mushtaq Ahmad Peer as Consultant for “fast-tracking recruitment to non-gazetted posts.” The appointment orders were issued by General Administration Department (GAD), here today, in continuation of the cabinet decision, last week.
 “His appointment has been approved on contractual basis for a period of two years. However, the contractual appointment shall be terminable before two years on one month's notice from either side”, the order reads.
 Prof Mushtaq would render expert guidance to the state government regarding IT applications and computerization, conduct tests for recruitment to non-gazetted and Class-IV posts through Services Selection Board (SSB), Divisional and District Recruitment Committees, Class-IV Recruitment Committees, or for any other recruitment as would be assigned to him by the government, the order added.
 Pertinently, the government has decided to fast-track recruitment process due to the mounting vacancies in various departments. The recruitment process has almost come to standstill following a direction by the State High Court staying recruitments under the New Job Policy adopted by the state government earlier this year.
 After going through all the options, the government has decided to fast-track recruitment process for filling up non-gazetted vacancies under the old recruitment regime till the Court decides the fate of the new policy.
 An official said by the end of January this year, at least 5250 gazetted posts were lying vacant while the number of vacant non-gazetted posts had swelled up to 455,88 apart from 16009 Class-IV vacancies.
 Besides, the Government has not filled up 43000 posts of daily wagers announced for seven identified departments.
 Officials said government had issued orders for engaging 43000 casual/seasonal laborers. While 10000 laborers each were to be engaged in Power and PHE/Irrigation and Flood Control Departments, 8000 engagements were to be made in Rural Development Department, 6000 each seasonal/casual engagements were targeted for Public Works and School Education departments, 2000  and 1000 laborers were to be absorbed in Floriculture and Forest Departments. But there has been no forward movement on the proposal.
 This March Government informed the State legislature that at least 5,97,000 unemployed youth had registered themselves with employment exchanges.
