The Jammu and Kashmir government Wednesday said that all the vacant posts need to be filled within four months of the date of advertisement and that all the appointments should be made on a regular basis.
Minister for Education Naeem Akhtar made the announcement at press conference in Srinagar while unveiling the state government's new recruitment policy named as "Fast-track Recruitment in Government Departments."
"As per the new policy the recruitment against all the vacant posts referred to the recruiting agencies shall have to be completed within four months," said Akhtar, according to an official handout.
"The new appointees would be, however, paid basic minimum pay (Pay Band+Grade Pay) during the first five years of service."
He said the persons appointed under the new policy shall be entitled to annual increments, dearness allowance, house rent and city compensatory allowance after successful completion of the five years' service on consolidated salary.
They will be, however, entitled to the benefits under the medical attendance rules and leave rules from the date of their initial appointment, he said.
He said the placement in regular scale of pay would be subject to assessment of the performance of the appointee.
However, he said, the seniority would be fixed taking into account the five years' service rendered by the officer/official.
The new appointees shall have to necessarily serve in their native place for five years in case of general candidates and for seven years in case of appointees from RBA, LoC and LAC categories.
