The written examination for the post of 4000 police constables will be held on March 20, and the police recruitment board in order to ensure itâ€™s smooth conduct has asked the state recruitment agencies, and education institutions not hold any other exam on this date so that it does not clash with others.
As per the police board it is expected that 20,000 candidates will appear for the written test after they take the physical test. There will be no interview for the selection process. In a communique the board has asked the authorities to ensure that no exam is held on March 20 as it could cause inconvenience to the young aspirants. To ensure that the selection is transparent the J&K police has roped in a private agency which will hold the examination using latest technology and gadgets thus ensuring that there are no acts of commission and omission. Once the exam is over the recruitment board will release the key, and seek for objections ensuring that there is no litigation later on.
Meanwhile, the aspirants to the post of police constables have expressed satisfaction over the preparations, and said that only those who clear the merit should be selected by department. In the past allegation of favouritism, nepotism have been made against the various recruitment agencies in the state. Despite the PDP-BJP governments assurances to fast track the recruitment process, the hiring process is stuck because of various reasons, particularly litigation.
