SRINAGAR: Scores of job aspirants held protest demonstrations against Jammu and Kashmir Service Selection Recruitment Board (JKSSRB) for the change in criteria for various posts advertised by the board.
Protesting aspirants, mostly stenographers, said that the selection was usually made on the basis of typing speed, but blame the authorities for omitting it altogether.
“The selection was made on the basis of the typing speed, and it was sole criteria for the selection, now they have made some changes,” said Younis, a protestor
He said that the department, out of nowhere, has made the written test mandatory of the selection, “but we have spent years in stenography, and now they are not even considering it,” he added.
The protestors demanded immediate revocation of the order which has sidelined the stenographers and has made the written test a sole base of for the selection.
“We demand that the changes made should be revoked,” they added.
