No Candidate Qualify for Higher Judicial Services in Jammu Kashmir


None of the 217 candidates who appeared for the written examination for direct recruitment of District Judges to Jammu Kashmir higher judicial service qualified, Bar and Bench reported.

A total of 217 candidates had appeared in the written examination but none secured the qualifying marks of 96 for the general category and 80 for the reserved category.

“ This was the fifth such instance of even a single lawyer failing to qualify the exam,” Bar & Bench quoted a senior Judicial official as saying.

On November 11, 2018, The High Court of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh had issued a notification calling for applications from practicing advocates, pleaders, assistant public prosecutors and civil judges as well as senior civil judges aged between 35 and 48 years, and with a work experience of more than seven years, for direct recruitment to the post of seven District Judges.

The selection process included three stages- a preliminary examination, then the main examination, and at the last stage, a viva voce.

None of them qualified while two secured a score of 0, Bar and Bench report added.
