Govt in dilemma over move to introduce SET for recruitment
Jammu, Mar 23: Jammu and Kashmir government is facing a dilemma over the introduction of mandatory State Eligibility Test for recruitment in various government departments through Public Service Commission (PSC) and State Service Board (SSB). Official sources said the government has been unable to take a final decision over the issue, even after a high level committee - constituted to examine the proposal – has submitted its report about six months back favouring the introduction of the new entrance test so as to bring more transparency in the recruitment process.
The government, last year, had proposed to introduce State Eligibility Test (SET) on the pattern of NET, SLET and SET. However, following reservations from some quarters the state constituted a high level committee headed by the Chief Secretary to examine the matter.
According to sources, the Committee has submitted its report to the government, more than six months ago, but the state is yet to clear its stand on it. If sources are to be believed the proposal was facing the delay at the administrative level as some official have expressed dismay over the recommendations of the Committee.
The government had accorded sanction to the constitution of the committee in April 2011 and it was asked to submit its report within two months.
Headed by the Chief Secretary, the Committee also comprised of as Administrative Secretaries of School Education Department, General Administration Department, Higher Education Department, Chairman of Service Selection Board and Secretary Public Service Commission as its members.
“The government is committed to introduce SET for various recruitments on the pattern of NET, SLET and SETC and a committee was constituted to examine the purpose. The report of the committee shall be examined by the government and appropriate action as required may be initiated accordingly”, a senior officer in the Chief Minister’s secretariat said.
