Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, July 17: Governor, N N Vohra on Tuesday chaired the 5th meeting of the State Administrative Council (SAC) here at Raj Bhavan.
Advisors to the Governor, B B Vyas, Vijay Kumar and Khurshid Ahmad Ganai besides Chief Secretary, B V R Subrahmanyam attended the meeting.
The SAC deliberated upon the various proposals submitted by Administrative departments for its consideration and approval.
In a decision with far-reaching consequences, the State Administrative Council (SAC) abolished interviews for all Class IV posts in the State. This comes into effect immediately except for those posts for which selection process has already been initiated.
In future, all recruitment for Class IV posts under State, Divisional and District Cadres and also for Companies, Organizations and Bodies substantially owned or controlled by the Government, will be done through the Jammu and Kashmir Services Selection Board (JKSSB). The General Administration Department will pool all the Class IV vacancies available in different Departments in the State at all levels and refer these to SSB. The SSB will draw-up a fixed Annual Calendar to ensure time bound selection against Class IV posts. The selection will be made based on merit secured in the written examination up to the level equivalent to the 10th standard.
The SAC approved enhancement of Fixed Traveling Allowance (FTA) from existing limit of Rs 15 to Rs 100 per month in favor of Village Level Workers (VLWS's) / Multipurpose Workers (MPWs) working with the Rural Development Department.
The decision of the SAC to enhance the FTA will benefit as many as 3314 VLWs/MPWs across the state.
The SAC accorded sanction to the promotion of 27 officers of the J&K Excise & Taxation (Gazetted) Service to the Time Scale of the J&K Administrative Service in the Pay Band of Rs 15600-3900 with GP of Rs 6600.
SAC also approved the revised DPR of Ujh Multipurpose Project costing Rs.4750 crores. The project on completion will generate 186 MW of electricity and irrigate around 31,380 hectares of land in Kathua District.
In the revised DPR, the height of the reservoir in the Dam has been reduced, as a result of which the area under submergence has reduced from 41 sq km to 34.5 sq km i.e. reduction of about 7 sq km, with the likely population to be affected by submergence coming down by about 3000 people i.e from 11498 to 8684 souls.
SAC approved the launch of a big-ticket Employment Generation programme namely "J&K Rural Employment Generation Programme (JKREGP)" with an annual outlay of Rs 50 Crore to start with.
The new scheme will target 1500 unemployed youth annually in the initial phase and will be implemented by J&K Khadi Village & Industries Board (KVIB) from the financial year 2018-19.
The Scheme shall be a Direct Benefit Transfer / Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme with term loan equivalent to 60% of the project cost to be provided by the financial institutions with the Government subsidy in the shape of Margin Money of 35% in rural areas/villages across all categories. The beneficiary shall be required to put his share, equivalent to 5% of the project cost up to Rs 25 lakh.
The Scheme covers around 18 activities under Agro& Food Processing Industry, 12 activities under Forest Based Industry, 7 activities under Handmade Paper/Fiber Products, 8 activities under Mineral Based Products, 8 activities under Polymer & Chemical Based Industry, 14 activities under Rural Engineering & Biotechnology, 27 activities under Service Industry and 17 activities under Textiles.
