Conduct interview for the KU lecturer posts

This is in reference to the contractual lecturer posts advertised by the University of Kashmir before lockdown. Now that the lockdown is over and there is a dip in the number of cases, the University of Kashmir is not calling for the interview for the lecturer posts advertised. We, the unemployed applicants, request the authorities to look into the matter and expedite the interview process.

Mohammad Farooq Wani Shah Anwar colony, Hyderpora CCE and PO aspirants demand extension in the date of submission of applications

JKPSC had advertised the posts and sought applications from the aspirants to appear in CCE 2021 and for the Prosecuting Officers POs (for Law graduates). The date for submission of online forms for PO posts was 8th March to 9th April 2021 & for the CCE 2021 was 11th March to 12th April 2021. Thereafter no extension in the submission of online application forms was granted. The preliminary exams for the above advertisements were scheduled in May and July, respectively. Soon after the lockdown, JKPSC came up with a notification stating that the preliminary exams for CCE 2021 are postponed to October 2021, and the fresh date for PO preliminary will be notified in due course of time. Under the earlier mentioned schedule, there was a very short time for the prelims of both the exams and most of the aspirants either missed the deadline for submission of applications or did not apply due to the shortage of time. We now request the JKPSC to extend the date of submission of our applications so that more aspirants can get a chance to apply for the posts.

Residents of Begam and Pariwan demand macadamization of road

We, the residents of Begam and Pariwan, are facing a lot of inconvenience due to the pathetic condition of the road, which connects us with the main district road Kulgam on one side and Shopian road on the other side. We had appealed to the R&B department several times, but no action has been taken yet. We once again request the authorities to look into the matter and macadamize the road as soon as possible.

Pending status of golden cards causing inconvenience to the card holders

I would like to bring to the notice of higher authorities that there are scores of families whose Golden Card requests are pending in the Office of State or National Health Agency; consequently, hundreds of people are unable to make use of the benefits of the scheme as assured by the Government of India. People at ground level are unable to know the reason for the pendency status of the Cards. It is pertinent to mention here that people can not apply again until the said department rejects the previous request. Nowadays, cards are approved through auto updation, and it takes few minutes to download the card and avail of the benefits. However, those people whose cards are pending are concerned and anxious. They have appealed to local authorities many times, but they too are helpless. Now we request the Honourable LG to intervene and pass directions to either endorse the requests or repudiate them so that people can apply again to get benefits of the scheme as many underprivileged people cannot afford to pay for the cost of treatment.

Appeal to LG

A good number of non-gazetted, in-service employees have been appointed/recruited in various departments (like School Education, J&K Police, SKIMS, Revenue Department) under SRO 202 of 2015 (amended vide Government S.O No. 194 dated 17-06-2020), but neither pay protection nor service benefits have been given to these employees as envisaged in Article 77-D of J&K CSR, thus depriving us the benefits of allowances and yearly increments. Most of the in-service recruits have served their parent/previous department for more than five years, and some have even crossed the service tenure of more than ten years in previous departments. The above SRO was issued by General Administration Department without consultation of the Finance/Law Department, due to which there happens to be a lacuna in the said SRO. Clarifications have been sought from various departments on the subject matter, but the clarification file bearing No. (File No. 96/2016) is still pending for reasons best known to them. We are facing a huge financial crisis and are in a state of mental agony. As such, LG J&K is requested to look into the matter on priority so that clarification is issued and our genuine claim is obtained.
