Jammu and Kashmir Energy Development Agency has put the career of thousands of job aspirants at stake as the examination date announced by the agency for the various posts in JAKEDA is coinciding with the date for Kashmir Administrative Service (KAS) main examination. 

A delegation of aspirants while talking to Greater Kashmir said, “JAKEDA issued four different notifications in 2017 for more than 70 posts of senior technical officers, assistant engineers, junior engineers seeking applications from eligible engineering students of different streams.”

They said, “As per our educational qualification, we are eligible for more than three posts but due to poor coordination JAKEDA is holding all examinations on March 18.”

“One the same day we have to appear for KAS exam for which we are preparing from past two years,” they added.

“How can one prepare and then appear in 4 different exams on the same day?” they questioned. 

“We approached JAKEDA authorities but they rejected our plea to postpone the exam. They told us that the examination is being conducted by an outside agency and they cannot do anything,” the aspirants said.
