SRINAGAR, Feb 17: The five month long unrest in Kashmir during 2016 besides affecting various sectors of life has also impacted the job opportunities of thousands of youth in the government sector.
Reports said that thousands of youth not only of Kashmir, but also of Jammu region are eagerly waiting for the selection lists to be out so that they could join the government departments. The basic reason for delay in the finalization of candidates for the various posts is the unrest that rocked Kashmir following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander, Burhan Muzaffar Wani.
Abid Ahmad, a resident of Srinagar who had applied for a divisional cadre post advertised by Services Selection Board (SSB) told Early Times that he along with other candidates is waiting for the selection list to be out for the past one year or so. He said the post was advertised in 2013 and despite a lapse of four years the selection process has not been completed.
"The post was divisional cadre one and the interview for the same were conducted in April last year. However, despite a lapse of 10 months since holding of interview the selection list has not been made public. The delay in the selection process has made the candidates including me somewhat nervous and there are apprehensions about the fair selection of the right candidate," said Abid.
Manzoor Ahmad, a resident of Budgam is worried since he appeared in the type cum shorthand test for the Junior Assistant post some four months back and the further process of selection has not been taken up further up to this moment of time. He like the other candidates has voiced concern over the inordinate delay in finalization of selection list.
"The SSB had invited applications for the posts of Junior Assistant in the General Administration Department (GAD) some time back. The type cum shorthand test was conducted four months back and it was expected that the SSB would take forward the selection process. However, the same did not happen thus leading to anxiety among the candidates including me," said Manzoor.
Admitting that there has been a delay in finalizing selection of candidates for various posts, Chairperson SSB Sarita Chauhan said that the unrest in Kashmir during 2016 led to a situation where the Board could not work properly. She said that the Board is on job and the things are heading in right direction.
"Everybody knows that the situation was not conducive in Kashmir during the last year and the same led to suspension of work indepartments including SSB. However, the things are picking up and we are finalizing the selection of candidates. Let me assure you that the backlog would be cleared in due course of time," said Sarita.
