Govt to come out with rational distribution of posts for equal opportunities every year

Step also aimed at equal career progression chances

Home Deptt to engage highest number of unemployed youth

JAMMU, Apr 06: The administration is working on rational distribution of posts, both Gazetted and non-Gazetted, to ensure that youth Graduating or getting other degrees eligible for postings, get equal opportunity to compete for the posts every year. This will also lead to equal career progression opportunities for the batches of every year.

Official sources told that the Union Territory administration started work on the new policy after observing that a batch Graduating in particular year was getting opportunities to compete for large number of posts in Gazetted as well as non-Gazetted cadre while the batch following years was left with few posts to apply for.

Similar was the case with those holding other degrees which were eligible for applying for particular posts.

For instance, the sources said, the youth get chance to compete for 300-odd posts of UT cadre Civil Services like JKAS/JKPS while next year’s batch was left with 70-odd posts only. Almost same was the case in the posts for Sub Inspectors which are not advertised for couple of years.

“This also hampers career progression of the Government officers/officials,” they pointed out.
Taking all pros and cons into account, a comprehensive policy is being framed by the administration and it will be out soon. This will be beneficial for unemployed youth not only in terms of obtaining jobs but also in career progression, the sources said.

Meanwhile, the Home Department has topped with 6256 vacancies, which are unreferred as well as fit for referral, out of a total of 20,000 posts which will be advertised during due course of time this year in Jammu and Kashmir.
