The frequent litigations in courts hamper the swift recruitment of aspiring candidates for different jobs in government sector.
Recruitment of unemployed educated youth for various posts through government agencies has failed to bear any results as aggrieved candidates often get stayed courts, challenging selection process on various grounds.
A delegation comprising of unemployed youth who have applied for jobs for posts in government departments media that with the frequent stay orders from the courts, their future is hanging in balance.
“We have submitted our forms two years ago in various departments but some candidates created hindrance by filing litigation in the court against the recruitment process,” they said.
The various job posts and examinations which got stayed by the courts include AE (Electric), AE (civil), KAS, NT, Pathwari exams and various others.
They said that due to the stay orders in these posts they are facing tremendous hardships. “The authorities should take immediate steps and file their response to the courts so that stay orders are removed and the recruitment process goes ahead smoothly,” they said.
AS per court orders, in December last year the operation of Notification No.PSC/ Exam/ AE (Electric)/2013 dated December 12, 2015 issued by the Public Service Commission notifying the date and time of screening test for short listing of the candidates against the posts of Assistant Engineers (Electric) in response to Advertisement Notification No.15-PSC (DR-P) of 2013 dated August 12, 2013 was stayed in a petition titled Munshi Majid Ali and Others Versus State and Others.
“The operation of the impugned notification no PSC/EX-15/60 dated 15.12.2015 shall stay wherein the JKPSC has notified the dates of interview for the candidates who qualified the written test,” the court said.
However after passing several months, the state administration despite court orders failed to take steps for the removal of court orders.
Blaming state administration for failing to take necessary steps for the removal of stay orders, job seekers said, “Due to the negligence of higher ups, our future is hanging in balance. It can hardly take authorities one day to redress the problems by taking suitable action but they have miserably failed,” they said.
They said that if the authorities are reluctant to take necessary steps then they should make it public so that an unemployed educated youth can find any other alternative to earn their bread.(Agencies)
