Srinagar, Apr 8: In the Recruitment Policy 2015 wherein the recruited people were ought to work for five years on puny salary, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti is touted to be considering making some new amendments to it.
If the reports of a Jammu based daily are to be believed, sources within the government have said that the Chief Minister may have amended the new recruitment policy that was introduced in the state in 2015.
Experts at that time had cautioned the decision makers that the policy in itself had imperfections for all types of services especially for gazetted services.
Gazetted services especially in Education sector were diminishing, said the experts.
The experts also add that, those who have completed research degrees (doctorate and post-doctorate) have been the most affected.
If infact the recruitment policy is being amended keeping these points in mind, it will act as a tension breaker for the job aspirants in the state.
According to the present policy, even candidates having doctorate degrees have to work for five years on meagre salary which is below the pay of class-IV employees and have to serve in Zone-III areas of the state.
Supposedly, the Chief Minister’s office has also shown concern about why the posts of Medical Officers in Health Department were kept out of purview of the new job policy.
According to the policy neither doctors, nor KAS or KJS officers but only lecturers have been almost selectively meshed out.
A top official source said that in the coming days the positive development can be seen in our state as the Chief Minister herself is monitoring it.
