A selected teacher has complaint that his name was there in the list but he has not received any letter in his favour. He said he has also approached SSB authorities’ time and again but nobody told him anything.
Also, the reliable sources of this local daily have said that there are another hundred of teachers waiting for their joining and they still were running pillar to post to get appointment letter, while some other teachers in the same list had joined their services in month of November, December 2015.
The sources also revealed that the teachers who are not allowed to join belong to some migrant community. During the partition of Jammu and Kashmir, they were residing in POK, now they are rehabilitated in various parts of Jammu district which is mentioned in their respective certificates (PRCs) but the authority sought one more proof of Jammu.
“PoK refugees, who were rehabilitated in several parts of the Jammu region, have PRCs (state subject), but their permanent residence from where they had migrated during partition, is also written on their respective state subjects.However, their present addresses are also mentioned on the PRCs, but despite all of these, the authority have compelled to produce resident proof of Jammu district”, sources said.
Unfortunately, the SSB has forgotten that the area from where they belong falls under Pakistan’s jurisdiction. “Having a proof of being a resident of Jammu, I am being asked to get verified certificate from concerned SDM and Tehsildar that I am a resident of that area, how funny it is”, said the teacher.
