Jammu, 02 March: The Jammu University Syndicate has agreed for Crime Branch investigation into the suspicious recruitment shenanigans which came to light over the issuance of an interview call letter to a candidate, who had not even appeared in the entrance test for the post of Assistant Registrar in Jammu University.
Since the Vice-Chancellor re-advertised the vacant posts of Assistant Registrar in the aftermath of recognition of irregularity, the Jammu University Syndicate has decided that the candidates who have turned overage at the time of re-advertisement would be considered for age relaxation. This consideration will come into effect only if these candidates were not overage on the last date of the earlier advertisement notice number Adm/C&R/11/1677-1776, dated 29-08-2011.

Curiously, the daughter of the existing Vice-Chancellor, Prof R.D. Sharma is also an applicant for the post of Assistant Registrar. Keeping this in view, the Syndicate has decide that the matter hereon will be dealt by the Financial Advisor (Universities) through the Registry.
These important decisions were taken recently in a meeting which the Vice-Chancellor decided not to attend as his own daughter is an applicant for the post of Asst Registrar. The second highest decision making body in his absence took the decisions.
Internal investigations had revealed how those on top of the affairs in University of Jammu were manipulating the functioning including the selection procedure for various posts to derive benefits for relatives and favourites and outrageously ignoring the deserving and eligible candidates.
This controversy gets fortified by examples of multiple such appointments where even an influential clerk in Jammu University, who had not even appeared in the Written Test for the post of AR, was invited by the Competent Authority for interview before the selection committee.
