SYED IMRAN ALI HAMDANI
Srinagar, Feb 5: Amid unending queues of aspirants waiting to submit their forms in bone-chilling cold on Tuesday, chaos prevailed at the Services Selection Board (SSB) office at Parraypora
The aspirants accused the SSB of subjecting them to inconvenience and making them “unduly shell out extra money” to submit the forms.
The aggrieved aspirants said at a time when each form is priced at Rs 200, they are being made to submit a photocopy of all their qualification certificates even though there are no such guidelines for the submission of the form.
“I had to go back to my home to get my qualification certificates and other relevant documents and get them photocopied,” said an aspirant adding he had to spent Rs 300 to make photocopies for six forms he submitted.
“Ironically, a form to apply for recruitment in Indian Administrative Services (IAS) takes Rs 90 whereas for a post of Junior Assistant in State Government SSB is charging almost double the amount”, said an aspirant, MBA by qualification.
Besides, most of the aspirants said there is inaccuracy in the form design. Under technical qualification column one can select either Bachelor of Education are Bachelor in Computer Application. But for the applicant who has both the qualification there unable to write down both their qualification.
“What should I write BCA or B.ED though I have done both,” argued a candidate.
Amid all this confusion and snowfall, the aspirants are finding it inconvenient to submit their forms while the last date of February 9 is approaching fast.
When contacted SSB officials said it was necessary to submit photocopies but acknowledged the office had skipped to mention it in the form guideline. About the extension of last date he said the matter would be look into.
