Youths from IB areas in J-K eligible for reservation in Govt jobs: Jitendra

NEW DELHI: Union Minister Jitendra Singh said on Wednesday that youths from the International Border (IB) areas in Jammu and Kashmir are eligible to avail the benefits of reservation applicable for them in Government employment.

The assertion comes after some candidates raised doubts over the applicability of reservation provided for them.

Singh, the Minister of State for Personnel, said he had a discussion with Jammu and Kashmir Lt Governor G C Murmu and Chief Secretary B V R Subrahmanyam on Wednesday on the matter and the Union Territory administration will issue a clarification accordingly. (AGENCIES)
