Aggrieved job aspirants demand conduct of exams

Excelsior Correspondent
Srinagar, Nov 30: Scores of aspirants who have applied for different posts advertised by the Legislative Council and J&K High Court today said that their career has been marred due to non-serious attitude of the authorities.
They said that they applied for posts put out by the council in September last year and by the J&K High Court in January this year; however, there has been no progress in this direction so far.
The job aspirants said that Council advertized the posts vide Notification No: 1 of 2018 for various posts before the Union Territory status was granted to J&K.
“It is unfortunate that even after the passage of one year the examination has not been conducted, neither have been told what to do about it,” they said, adding that though the syllabus for the examination was put out by the Council, “nothing substantial has been achieved regarding the same,” they said.
They said there were total of 20 posts, for which almost 5000 applications were submitted across J&K, adding that most of the aspirants are on the verge of getting overage and that nobody seems to be taking the issue seriously.
With regard to the posts of Assistant Protocol Officer put out by the High Court, the aspirants said they have applied for the same almost one year ago, but the examinations are yet to be conducted.
“We applied for the post published under Notification No: 1of 2019 dated 10-01-2019. Though the syllabus was issued, but the exam has not been conducted till date,” they said.
While appealing Lieutenant Governor, Girish Chandra Murmu to take personal interest in the issue, the aspirants said that the administration should take the issue seriously and make an effort to save their future. They also appealed to the administration to conduct the examination for these posts that were put out as soon as possible.
