No washroom facilities, chambers for lawyers at court complex Chadoora

The the members of Bar litigants face hardships in Chadoora court complex due to non-availability of washroom facility. Also, the lawyers have neither chambers nor bar room nor library within the complex at Chadoora court, particularly ten lady lawyers have no chamber for sitting and have no separate washroom facilities. Some years ago, a huge amount was spent by PWD Chadoora, and two bathrooms were constructed within the complex, but both are non-functional as no water is available and no cleaning is done. The municipal committee, Chadoora and PHE department were requested to arrange water supply for washrooms and daily cleaning of these bathrooms, but the concerned departments never paid any heed to it. We request the law department to release funds for the construction of advocates chambers and library within the court premises.

Address grievance of Rehbar-e-Khel teachers

We, the Rehbar-e-Khel teachers, have been serving on a scanty remuneration of 3000/= a month, with a hope that the Government would enhance the same and regularise our position, as planned and promised by the authorities. Equipped with substantial rather pre­eminent Degrees (PG, MPhil and in some cases, PhD), we have been contributing our breath and sweat to the department with devotion. We shouldered the responsibilities, performed our academic, examination and election duties even in unfavourable circumstances with a hope to overcome our misery. Ironically all our toil and dedication doesn’t fetch our respective families, even daily meals. Time and again, the committees were constituted with the agenda of regularisation of our position, but justice didn’t embrace our threshold to date. Depressed and disappointed, we have no other option but to beseech the benevolence of our LG to intervene and lead the unresolved matter to its favourable resolution. We hope that our longstanding genuine demand for regularisation and immediate enhancement in our wages (basic pay) is approved without further delay.

Aspirants aghast over selection list in fire and emergency services deptt

The selection list of fire and emergency services, J&K was recently made public. Notification for the recruitment was issued almost eight years ago. The written exam was held twice.

Now we request the authorities to take immediate action in this regard.
