Kachawardi KhanSahib has no lady doctor

18 yrs on, Kachawardi PHC has no lady doctor. 

We the residents of Kachawardi area, Khansahib Budgam are facing immense problems due to no lady doctor being posted at Primary Health Centre Kachawardi for the past 18 years.

We had informed the former MLA Khansahib, Director Health Services Kashmir on numerous occasions about this issue but till date no action has been taken.

This PHC caters to population of patients from Raithan, Wathrad, Dalbal, Freslab, Branwar and other distant hamlets.

As a protest, we recently locked the PHC as our female patients were referred to sub-district hospital Khansahib and district hospital Budgam due to unavailability of a lady doctor.

We once again appeal to the authorities to address the issue on war footing basis otherwise we would be left with no other option other than hitting the streets.   


PHE negligence leaves Natipora residents fuming  

It’s quite shocking that the PHE department is supplying sewage water to the residents of Natipora and Chanapora. Last week taps ran dry for more than 24 hours but when the supply was restored we were shocked to see sewage water flowing through our taps.

It is believed that the water supply plant was being cleaned, which happens once in a year. However the concerned employees forgot to cut the supply due to which the sewage water was supplied to the residents. This is grave negligence on part of the PHE department which is responsible for supplying clean water.


Padder residents seek Governor’s intervention 

We the residents of Padder Kishtwar request the Governor’s administration to appoint as competent authority in our area to issue permanent resident certificates (PRCs).

Job aspirants urge KVIB to end their dilemma  

In 2016, Jammu and Kashmir Khadi and Villages Industries Board (KVIB) issued advertisement for filling up vacant posts. In July-August 2017 the KVIB conducted written test and in December results were declared. This year in January and February interviews were held for few posts. The interviews for the posts of “junior supervisors” were not conducted due to unknown reasons.

We the aspirants have been waiting for almost 2 years. We want our dilemma to end. We are counting days and nights to appear in the final stage of recruitment process. The delay in conducting interview for the said post is pushing us towards depression.

We fail to understand why the higher authorities are not conducting the interviews from the past two years. We appeal the concerned authorities to end our predicament by completing the final phase of the recruitment process.

Don’t postpone J&K Bank exams

We the candidates appearing for the posts of probationary officer and banking associate in Jammu and Kashmir Bank want to request the Bank authorities not to postpone our written test.

Rumors are circulating on social media that J&K Bank exams won’t be held on 23 April due to parliament elections. We request the J&K Bank authorities to clear the air over the issue so that they are able to concentrate on their preparations.
