Jammu and Kashmir

JAMMU, Apr 4:The State Government has asked the J&K Public Service Commission to go ahead with the process of selection to the post of Assistant Professor as per the existing eligibility norms, thus depriving the candidates having acquired PhD degrees, prior to June 2009, from getting shortlisted for the interview.
